The latest from Microgaming is that they have released Thunderstruck 2 on mobile, plus they also released a brand new online slot called Racing for Pinks. Thunderstruck 2 is therefore now available on Microgaming’s download, Flash, Quickfire and mobile casino platforms. Although Thunderstruck 2 has been available for Android users since February this year, this is the first time it has been released in HTML5 format.

“Thunderstruck II is one of our most successful games and we are delighted that players can experience the world-renowned slot on any platform and desired choice of device. We recognise the importance of developing games with cross-platform capability; our achievement with Thunderstruck II signifies the start of things to come,” said the Head of Product Channels at Microgaming, Neill Whyte.

Two NetEnt slots also recently made it into the spotlight when the Mega Fortune slot paid out €3.2 Million on Tuesday October 22nd and the Hall of Gods paid out an eye-watering €6.4 Million just a few days later. The first of the two NetEnt winners came from a Finnish online casino called Play among Friends and the second prize was awarded to a Scottish player over at BetVictor Casino.

“I have been a member of BetVictor for a long time and I bet across their sportsbook and poker games but one day I thought I would give the casino slots a try too, as the jackpots are so tempting; but I never dreamt I could actually win so much,” said the player from Aberdeenshire, Scotland. This was the largest ever single prize paid out to a registered member at BetVictor Casino. €6.4M is approximately £5.4M.

Sheriff Gaming released a total of seven new online casino games in October, which included one classic slot, one 3D online slot, three new blackjack varieties for PC and laptop and two mobile casino games (one mobile slot and mobile roulette).

These new games from Sheriff Gaming are called Lucky 7s Blackjack, Lucky Pairs Blackjack and Lucky Poker Blackjack, as well as Roulette SMART, Extreme SMART, Underwater World (3D slot) and Random2Wins (classic slot).
