From its head quarters in Isle of Man, Microgaming, the world's leading and largest provider of online gaming software, has released a press advisory announcing the launch of brand new online casino products, Pachislo and Pachinko. These are popular Japanese arcade games and Microgaming's game designers will be bringing these games in an online casino format.

The advisory says that to start with Microgaming will be releasing two Pachislo three reel, five payline games and one Pachinko game. The date that the games are expected go live has not been indicated. But given Microgaming's track record players at it online casinos can expect that these new online casino products will authentically replicate the feel of the genre. The games have been given unique and innovative features so as the make them appealing to a wider global audience. To fit in with the multi lingual Microgaming software the Pachislo and Pachinko games will be available in multiple languages. They will be offered to online casino operators as a stand-alone product within the Microgaming portfolio.

Commenting on the release Mike Hebden, Head of Casino at Microgaming, pointed out that the launch of Pachislo and Pachinko has proved that Microgaming has always been a market leader when it comes to launching innovative products. He added, "This latest proposition demonstrates our commitment to exploring new markets and tailoring our offering to an increasingly diverse range of operators and players. We have worked hard to ensure that our new portfolio of games captures the sights, sounds and game logic of authentic Pachislo and Pachinko games …" He was confident that the new product will be a success with the global Microgaming player community.

Pachinko is a Japanese arcade gaming device that can be best described as a vertical pin ball machine without flippers. A ball is fired at a controllable initial speed into the machine and falls through a layout of pins. If it ends up in certain pockets then more free balls are awarded to the players. Originally the device was entirely mechanical but now the electronic versions are more popular. In Japanese arcades the players can exchange balls won only for gifts because gambling is illegal, but in the Microgaming version real money players can expect to receive cash payouts. Pachislo resembles the classic three reel slot machines. Their defining feature is that each reel can be independently stopped by separate buttons. After the player acquires the requite skill his chances of obtaining winning combinations increase. The other features of Pachislo games are the Big Bonus and Regular Bonus. Players at Microgaming online casinos like All Slots, Platinum Play and River Belle can expect these new products going live soon.
