Normally a slot machine game can be played by one player at a time. However, there are community slot games that allow multiple players to simultaneously interact on the same slot machine. This today is not uncommon in offline land based slots malls. It is, though, a rarity in online gaming. Therefore when Sky Vegas announced yesterday the launch of the multiplayer slot game Community Cops n Robbers it was big news.
On the face of it Community Cops n Robbers is a 20 payline and 5 reel slot game in which players can win up to £250,000 with stakes from £0.01 to £25 per line. The multiplayer interaction takes place when any of the three community bonus rounds are triggered by a player. These rounds are named Cash Explosion, Hot Pursuit and Cop the Lot. They allow all eligible players to pick up multipliers and cash bonuses. Community Cops n Robbers also includes a chat feature. A pre-launch survey was carried out among players at Sky Vegas and they overwhelmingly rooted for this feature. The chat functionality enables players to share there solitary experiences not only on online slots games but all other games and operational aspects of the casino.
Edwin Martin, Head of Customer Marketing at Sky Vegas explained the rationale behind the release of Community Cops n Robbers. This multiplayer online slot game provides "the opportunity for thousands of players to join forces in the knowledge that when one player triggers the feature, everyone can share the rewards." Now that players are getting the taste of the first community slot game at Sky Vegas the demand for such games is bound to grow according to Martin. He added, "In our commitment to providing our players with all the best games, all in one place, we are committed to introducing more community games in the very near future."
Community Cops n Robbers is not the first multiplayer slot game in the online gaming space. About a year ago Microgaming launched Multi-Player Wheel of Wealth Special Edition at All Slots online casino. In this game up to six players can log in to the same game. As in the Community Cops n Robbers, the players can chat with each other while wagering. The multiplayer feature becomes active in the bonus round, which is triggered randomly in the Multi-Player Wheel of Wealth Special Edition. When the bonus game is triggered all the players move to the bonus round at the same time. Each player selects a position on the wheel. At the end of the round each player’s winning is multiplied by his bonus.
