While October is a month of spookiness, when it comes to the world of online casino, things were pretty cheery this year. From new online casinos setting up shop to new bonuses and promotions being launched, October 2018 was a rather exciting time to be alive.
Thrilled to sit back and watch some great things happen in the industry, we today give our blog readers a recap of this momentous month.
Like any annual celebration or holiday, Halloween is a great excuse for casinos to launch new deals. And, this year, they really came up trumps! Below are the top three Halloween casino deals (in our humble opinion that is).
Betfred – Encouraging casino players to make a ‘Halloween Fortune’, Betfred were all over the spooky promotions. Pushing their Halloween Fortune slot, Betfred got well and truly in the mood. As a slot that boasts various bonus rounds, multipliers and fun wilds, it is understandable why so many players were making way to Betfred’s sign-up page this month.
Mr Green – As our casino of the month, Mr Green really pulled it out the bag in October. Launching what many called their ‘best giveaway yet’, the online casino was promoting a free trip to California. Set around Haunted Queen Mary, the slot deal saw players participate for the following:
Return flights for 2 people from Europe to Los Angeles
2 nights of accommodation at the B340 Suite
£2,000 of spending money
Unibet – Taking the theme of Halloween one step further was Unibet, launching a whole lobby dedicated to the 31st October. These included over 20 casino games such as Tales of Darkness, Break of Dawn, Polterheist, Bloodsuckers, Street Magic, Tales of Darkness Lunar Eclipse, Wolf Hunters, Lightening Horseman and many more! Encouraging new players to give their site a go with their all-new Welcome Bonus, Unibet are making some real waves in the way of digital casino.
A big month for Mr Green
As you know, here at Casino Sites we are huge advocates of Mr Green’s, eager to promote the wonderful casino games, bonuses and schemes the fabulous casino has to offer our users.
However, in October, the Mr Green drama was about much more than your odd freebie, with the casino announcing a partnership with Greentube Online. Gaining access to a whole host of wonderful slot games, Mr Green will now be able to offer Book of Ra deluxe, Lucky Lady’s Charm deluxe and Sizzling Hot deluxe to their already-fabulous collection.
Antoine Benello, Mr Green’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are confident that the acquisition potential of the classic Novomatic titles will further enhance our growth strategy. Having these titles as part of our portfolio complements our existing offering and solidifies Mr Green as a leading online operator.”
Michael Bauer, Greentube CFO and Chief Games Officer, said: “We are more than excited that is partnership is becoming a reality. We feel very confident that Mr Green’s customers will love our amazing portfolio of games.”
Experiencing an exciting time of growth, Mr Green are going from strength to strength, also reporting a 44% increase in year-on-year revenue.
Partypoker wins EGR “Poker Operator of the Year” award...again!
PartyPoker, one of the biggest names in online poker, has this week announced that they have won the Poker Operator of the Year award for the second year running. Renowned for giving online casino players a diverse set of poker games, it is easy to see why they have been credited yet again. Well and truly cementing their name in the industry, the team were thrilled by the big win.
Beating Kindred Group and Stars Group to the post, the company was credited for improving their product and paying more attention to customer interaction. As a well-rounded poker site, we at Casino Sites were happy to hear this news. As was partypoker's Managing Director, Tom Waters. Talking after the glittery ceremony, he said:
“I’m absolutely delighted that the efforts of the team have been recognized for the second year running.”
“Everyone in the team has worked so hard to get partypoker to where it is now and we are excited about how we can now take it to the next level.”
UK Council call for maximum bets to be decreased
With the industry living to the motto ‘when the fun stops, stop’, more and more campaigns are being held to combat problem gambling. Just this month, UK Council has urged Chancellor Hammond to push forward plans to limit maximum stakes on fixed-odd betting terminals. Gaining the support of 27 UK councils, the world of online betting is expected to be the Chancellor’s next port of call.
