Bricks Without the MortarThe big brains at CryptoLogic create online Jenga to tower above the competition.
The online gaming world doesn’t go for too long without hearing from CryptoLogic and a hopper of new innovative games. And May was no exception for the gaming software leaders when they announced the launch of new downloadable games featuring a video slot version of Jenga, one of the world’s most popular and captivating games. No longer is the game relegated to university down days.
“Adding Jenga to our line-up is another example of CryptoLogic’s ability to take the world’s most popular branded casual games and turn them into a compelling, captivating casino experience,” said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic’s president and CEO. “CryptoLogic’s greatest strength is extraordinary e-gaming innovation—and that leads to games that are popular with players, and profitable for our customers.”
Jenga is one of those games that satisfies every basic gaming need: suspense, strategy and non-threatening destruction. The 3D aspect works to its advantage as well, leaving all those other board games in their musty corner existence. The fact it’s a piece of cake to learn and play makes it an instant magnet for entertainment no matter what your age and CryptoLogic have capitalised on that notion, but added a different twist to it—a twist that forces players to be at least 18 or older to play. But that’s hardly a drawback. Their colourful, sound-rich casual slot game features 18 paylines, and players can play either nine or 18 and win a maximum payout of 50,000 coins per game round. It’s as good as you remembered Jenga, with even more riding on that next decision to extract the right brick.
