Locus unveil new mobile casino
Operators Locus Gaming have launched a new mobile and tablet casino, Jack Wild.
The new offering boasts a range of traditional table games such as roulette, blackjack and baccarat, as well as 3-reel and 5-reel slots including Double Bubble, Tutankhamun, Pentagram, Over the Rainbow, Pirate Radio and Sunset Reels.
Jack Wild will match first deposits of up to £150 and is supported by a UK call centre.
Isle of Man-licensed Locus say that additional products will be released in the UK market during the second quarter of 2013.
Locus were founded by Ladbrokes veterans Mick d’Ancona and Ed Andrewes, the latter of who had been managing director of the firm’s online operation.
Andrewes said: “The key thing is that the customer account platform and games are tailored to optimise the customer experience for the devices from which they are accessed.
“They are not simply ‘bolt-on’ products to a traditional PC offering and in the longer term this can really make the Jack Wild brand stand out.
“It’s proven that customers prefer the functionality offered by touch screen devices, not only in casino gaming but across all online leisure activity. The PC has rolled its last dice.”
