Cryptologic launches first DC Comics themed games

October 28, 2009.

Cryptologic Limited, the global developer of branded online betting games and Internet casino software, has launched a new downloadable game lineup that will bring DC Comics' Super Heroes Batman and Wonder Woman to the world's Internet casinos for the first time.

[45] developed these two slot games after signing an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement with Warner Bros., Digital Distribution and DC Comics to bring these and other legendary comic characters to the Internet gaming environment in countries where online gaming is permitted. The company will earn recurring revenue based on a share of wagers placed by players on the games.

Other games, including one based on Superman, will follow in December of this (2009) year and then continue to be rolled out in 2010.

"With the Batman and Wonder Woman on our side, we're confident Cryptologic will again demonstrate the connection between big brands and revenue growth," said Brian Hadfield, Cryptologic's President and CEO. "Cryptologic's greatest strength is partnering with the brands that attract players to the biggest gaming sites in the world - providing increased revenue for our licensees and value for our shareholders."

The new game pack also features a video slot game, Monkeys to Mars, a new table game called Triple Action Hold'em, and a new video poker game known as Aces and Faces. Also in the bonus pack are updated versions of perennial favourites Let it Ride and Three Card Poker.

Batman

Batman battles The Joker in the internet world's first and only Batman slot machine. This groundbreaking 50-line game features stacked wilds and a Batman re-spin feature where all prizes are doubled as three free spins are played with one reel completely wild. Armed with a Batarang, players fight through the inmates of Arkham Asylum to stop The Joker, earning cash prizes.

Wonder Woman

Excitement and opportunity come together in this 50-line game with a bonus bet that features Wonder Woman battling an island of zombies. Watch Wonder Woman use her Golden Lasso of Truth to create wild symbols during the Wonder Wilds Free Spins Feature; wild symbols are held on the reels for up to five spins.

Monkeys to Mars

This new comical space exploration game features riveting graphics and sound, with nine spectacular animated symbols to make all players go bananas with excitement. This 25-line slot game from CryptoLogic is packed with enough stellar special features and out-of-this-world animations for players to explore for light years.

Triple Action Hold'Em

Triple Action Hold'Em Poker is a fast-paced table game with three wagering options: a main ante bet and two optional side bets that provide extra chances to win. Using only the top 28 cards in the deck, Triple Action Hold'Em gives the player an option to place an additional bet on the flop, as well as a bonus bet that pays out even more for any hand of two pair or better.

Aces and Faces

Developed for the more sophisticated video poker player, Aces and Faces features a fully resizable window and a new auto hold feature for easier and faster play. Players can play 1 to 100 hands and never need to exit and re-launch the game if they want to switch the number of hands being played.

Cryptologic has also launched updated versions of two table game favorites, Let it Ride and Three Card Poker. Both games have been upgraded to offer a new, more modern appearance and improved graphics to enhance the gaming experience.
