- Innovative live stream event debuts new online slot live
- Viewers can then watch live stream and bet on outcome of spins
The online casino world is all about innovation. Today players can see the next step in live casino streaming as LeoVegas Casino teams up with Big Time Gaming to premiere its latest online slot release via a live Twitch Stream.
The event will be the first time that the new game – Danger High Voltage – will be seen by players, and it will also represent the first time that an online slots game has premiered via a live stream.
Watch the first spin live
Twitch streamer, LetsGiveItASpin – otherwise known as Kim Hultman – will have the privilege of being the first ever person to hit the spin button for a real money spin on the new title from Big Time Gaming.
Players are invited to tune into his live stream channel – Twitch.tv/LetsGiveItASpin – at 21:00 CET today (02/05) to watch the action.
“We’re proud that LeoVegas is yet again the operator that will be introducing this innovative concept within the industry. We haven’t only been exclusively chosen to launch this exciting new game by BTG, but we’re launching it in a totally new way – through a livestream. This is in line with our promise of being always the first with the latest.”
Karolina Pelc, Leo Vegas
Following this first airing the game will then be available exclusively to LeoVegas Casino players, before then being launched at other online casinos from May 10.
Live betting to follow
On May 10, Danger High Voltage will be featured in a live betting event. By then, players will have had a week to familiarise themselves with the intricacies of the game and, by tuning in to LetsGiveItASpin, will be able to bet on Kim’s playing.
- How many features will be hit?
- What will the features pay out (a push if no features)?
- What will be the biggest base game win?
- Will the balance be up?
- Will the balance be down?
“This could be the tipping point for live streaming that brings in the masses.” says Nik Robinson, Big Time Gaming CEO. “As with sport, a bet can no doubt enhance the live experience and Kim’s channel viewers we’re sure, will enjoy the chance of an additional flutter on the outcome of their favourite slot machines”
About Danger High Voltage
The new Danger High Voltage online slot from Big Time Gaming is based on the hit song Danger High Voltage by Electric 6. The game is set in a blazing disco and has symbols that feature tacos, disco balls and bells.
It comes equipped with two generous bonus features that players can choose between. Picking 15 High Voltage Free Spins offers players the chance to trigger a x66 multiplier while the 7 Gates of Hell Free turns a random symbol into a sticky wild for the entire bonus round.
The world of casino streaming is growing in popularity. For the uninitiated, it involves casino players documenting and streaming their online or land based casino adventures to an audience via various online methods such as YouTube and Twitch.
While predominantly a spectator event, it’s increasingly becoming a betting opportunity in itself with viewers watching streamers play the games and then betting on the outcome, as will happen with this particular launch.
There’s no doubt that this is certainly an innovative new launch for the online casino sector. Traditionally – certainly in other markets – things such as live streaming, ‘vloggers’ and those who share their own content with others have taken some time to come to the attention of big brands. Of course, most large businesses are aware of the power of online blog content.
And so it seems to be with LeoVegas Casino. The brand is well known in the industry for its pioneering approach to online casino content, particularly related to mobile casinos, and this event seems to be another step ahead.
It’s definitely an interesting idea. If you’re a fan of online casinos then what better than to watch others play and have a flutter on what they’re doing? It’s almost like a double-dose of casino action, and you never know, you might learn something from another player. If you’re in doubt, be sure to tune in and see what the fuss is about.
