• 1x2Gaming Releases New Dark Thirst Video Slot

    Tons of online casino software developers are out there, and a lot of them have trouble competing with the big dogs in the industry because of the sheer number of games that some of the top companies have in game development space. In the cases of companies that have been able to challenge the "old guard," it's almost always been because they produced higher quality titles. That's exactly the route that 1x2Gaming is hoping to take with their newest game.

    About This New Title

    The new Dark Thirst video slot by 1x2Gaming features a vampire theme and multiple bonus features. It uses a five-reel format with three rows and 25 paylines, and is a familiar layout that players will be very comfortable with. The graphics aren't of the 3D variety like what has become trendy over the past year, but it does use a certain comic-like style that is a lot different than what you typically see with releases these days. This atypical visual style helps the game to stand out from the crowd, which is the first step towards doing the same for the company.

    Bonus Features

    You'll get a set of 10 free spins for picking up three or more of the scatter symbol, but there aren't really any multipliers or other add-ons to set these free turns apart, and that's mildly disappointing. However, you can also get value by picking up a minimum of three RIP symbols on an activated payline. This is a grave digging mini game where you'll go through a number of graves and try to pick out all of the undead creatures. You get to keep choosing until you pick a bare skeleton (not to be confused with a bear skeleton), and then your winnings are collected.

    Distribution and the Future

    It's pretty much a given at this point that Dark Thirst will be distributed via Bit8, EveryMatrix and NYX OGS since these are the three main companies that 1x2Gaming has distribution deals with. However, they're hoping that this title will get them some attention, and this could lead to even more opportunities to get their content out in front of customers. Only time will tell if this strategy will pay off, but the game itself looks very entertaining.
