We spoke to Warren Eloff, who is the Head of Product at Virgin Casino, to discuss popular slots, the future and their partnership with Playtech. Here are the questions we asked and the answers from the popular UK online casino:
In terms of Virgin Casino, you have a lot of slot games from various software providers – is this your key going forward?
There a lot of games out there. Our strategy is to cherry pick the best content as and when it becomes available to the market so that our customers have a one-stop shop to a wide range of the best games in the market.
Can we expect to see any new software providers in the near future?
Yes. We are in discussions with game providers and game aggregators to bring new software providers on. We have just recently added Playtech and Revolver Gaming to the list of games developers. More to be added in the future so watch this space!
You’ve added Mr Cashback and Rocky slots to Virgin Casino recently. These are Playtech slots – will you be adding any more in the near future?
Yes. Iron Man and Fantastic Four have been added to the mini-games menu. They will hit the sites soon as stand-alone games. Other PT games that are currently live include Lotto Madness, Dr. Lovemore and A Night Out.
What are your most popular slot games? Are they the classic IGT slots such as Cleopatra and Da Vinci Diamonds?
Definitely! Both the Da Vinci Diamonds variants are popular as well as Cleopatra, 50k and 100k Pyramid, Pixies of the Forest and Siberian Storm. The Wolf Run, Wild Wolf and Coyote Moon trilogy are big too.
Which are your most popular progressive jackpot slots? How do Leprechaun’s Luck and Alice’s Wonderland fare compared to the MegaJackpots slots?
The Ash Gaming Jackpots are by far the best because of the way they perform. Alice’s Wonderland, Leprechaun’s Luck and, believe it or not, Pharaoh’s Treasure are popular with our players. All games developed by Ash Gaming are popular with our players as they are quality games focusing on carefully thought out maths models that keep players engaged for longer and promote game “brand” loyalty.
Basically, Virgin Casino will be adding as many reputable software providers as possible meaning that, as a customer, you can expect a steady flow of new slot games to play. They’ve added Mr Cashback and Rocky recently (Playtech slots) and will be adding Iron Man and Fantastic Four (my favourite) shortly.
As Warren said, the jackpot slots are popular with the Ash Gaming ones being well received. I particularly like the Alice’s Wonderland game which has 3 superb bonus rounds and comes with a £243,745.66 jackpot (at time of writing).
Virgin Casino have a 100% welcome bonus up to £100 as well as a monthly reload bonus up to £200 (available normally until the 9th of the month). They have daily offers and add at least 1 new slot game a week. 2 days ago, they added the Microgaming-powered Shoot slot game. When claiming the welcome bonus, remember to click on the ‘Select A Bonus’ button and choose ‘Casino’.
