Hero Gaming Launches Blitz - A faster way to play casino
Malta based Hero Gaming is famous for innovation and for creating fun gaming experiences. The company operates the gaming sites Casino Heroes and Speedy Casino as well as the sportsbook Betser.
Now, Hero Gaming has taken the next step in introducing innovative solutions in the gaming market with the launch of Blitz. Through a unique interface with NetEnt's platform, customers can now play six times faster than normal.
Blitz lets users play at higher speeds without having to wait for the slot reels to be displayed with each spin, something that is considered time-consuming for some players.
Instead, an animated graphic showing their winnings is displayed, along with buttons that control the number of spins and size of stake.
This allows the gamer to stop the game at any time and to always have their updated account balance and remaining spins completely visible.
Tomas Bäckman, CEO of Hero Gaming, said:
“There’s a lot going on in the gaming world right now, and our focus is always on developing innovative gaming experiences that are both entertaining and technically in the forefront. Behind Blitz is a complex technical solution that meets the needs of today's gamers - it should be easy and fast while the pleasure factor is high. You should not be disturbed by information and graphics if you don’t want to be. We’ve spent a lot of time and effort in developing a technical platform that has both flexibility and strength. Blitz is an example of what we can create on it.
Blitz is developed on NetEnt’s technology as an overlay and the collaboration has proven to be successful.
”This is a collaboration between two driven and innovative players, utilising both companies’ strengths. NetEnt has contributed with significant insights and technical know-how in this process. My assessment is that Blitz will be a contribution to the gaming market,” concludes Tomas Bäckman,”
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, comments:
”We are pleased that Hero Gaming has chosen to develop Blitz on NetEnt's platform. Our ambition is to be at the forefront and we welcome innovative thinking and creative initiatives from our customers. In the future, I think we will see more of this type of products and solutions - to tailor the experience to different gamers. It will be exciting to see how gamers will use Blitz and we are looking forward to following developments.”
