Sky Vegas Free Spins!Thursday, Jun 29, 2017 08:43
The tool will feature on all upcoming BluePrint games, as well as collaborations with Sky Vegas.
Free Spins initially went live in the UK on BluePrint games ‘King Kong Cash’ and ‘Slots O’Gold’, which links into the multi-game ‘Jackpot King’ system.
BluePrint Managing Director Matt Cole said “The initial Free Spins launch with Sky Vegas has gone really well and this is mainly down to the innovative and effective use of marketing tools, which have become increasingly important. We’re excited to be rolling out Free Spins to Sky Vegas with all of our upcoming games and will be releasing new marketing features in 2017 to complement our big plans for new game launches.”
Sam Downey, Head of Commercials and Content, added: “The first free spins in the market on UK-focused content has proven to be really successful, so it makes sense to broaden our horizons by integrating the feature into the rest of our Blueprint games.
“We’re committed to providing our players with the best experience around and are excited that the Free Spins feature will be a major part of our portfolio.”
Sky Vegas is the company's primary online casino division. It currently offers an online casino website. The company's online casino offering is distinguished from the majority of its competitors in that it now plays in-browser rather than requiring a software download (currently being flash based, formerly distributed on CD). The company uses the slogan 'All the best games, all in one place'.
Sky Vegas is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) (GCB).
Until 12 April 2011, Sky Vegas had a dedicated TV channel of the same name on Sky channel 864 (which was formerly called 'Sky Vegas Live'), when it was rebranded Sky Bet.
The Road to Here
'Sky Bet Vegas' was created in March 2003, initially, with only 3 fixed odds casino-style games called 'Juicy Jackpot', 'Top Spin' and 'Super Keno'. As its name indicated, it was then part of Sky Bet but has since been made separate and rebranded to simply 'Sky Vegas'. When limitations on broadcasting Casino games through IDTV were lifted, the company began to offer games through its interactive facility alongside the Sky Vegas Live channel, which showed betting opportunities such as Virtual Horse and Greyhound races. Both the online casino and the television channel re-branded as Sky Vegas in January 2008, with the television channel later being renamed the Sky Bet channel in April 2011. In 2014, Sky Poker announced that poker professional Neil Channing would be their new brand Ambassador. Neil will support Sky Poker by appearing on Sky Poker TV, writing blogs and strategy articles and appearing at their very popular live event, the UK Poker Championships (UKPC) held at the Nottingham-based casino, Dusk Till Dawn.
