ICE Totally Gaming 2018: Highlights, Insights, and Dynamites
ICE Totally Gaming 2018 came down on London’s ExCel and brought with it a number of newsworthy developments. Industry heavyweights, regulators, and other gaming professionals and affiliates mingled, discussed, fought, and demoed tirelessly to highlight the best of global gambling. Here are some of the head-turners which promise to make 2018 a great year for everyone who lives and breathes gaming.
Microgaming Releases a Killer New Slot
One of the biggest game makers in the industry, Microgaming arguably stole the show with their steampunk themed booth, nerdy desserts, and – above all – tantalising new slot game. The Golden City of Fortunium will hit the Internet’s best casinos, hopefully by mid-2018 latest, and it will bedazzle with its steampunk brass look and sensibilities. Equipped with a classic five-by-five reel, Fortunium also packs a number of goodies like Stacked Mystery Symbols, Mystery Reels, and a heart-stopping Win Booster. The game is especially optimised for mobile, so you can hit those funky reels on the go.
