888, an iGaming leader listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: 888), is no stranger to world-class entertainment. 888 is the umbrella company for multiple verticals, including the celebrated 888casino, Mr. Green, William Hill, and SI Sportsbook. Leading from the front, this renowned enterprise is working hard behind the scenes to roll out innovative new technologies and entertainment attractions. One such announcement is the launch of Captain8. Developed by in-house, proprietary game studio Section8, this brand-new multi-game franchise aims to bring significant changes to the gaming world.
888 rolled out in 1997 with top-tier gaming technology leveraging a multidisciplinary team's assets, experience, and technical proficiency. Some 140 world-class gaming products have been created, exclusive to the brand. These include blackjack, video slots, classic slots, roulette, and others. With Captain8, players traverse the Galaxy in every game with a separate universe bubbling over with features. There are missions with each of the six slot machine games in this Captain8 series. Plus, there's also a new Power 8 Jackpot. This is a triple-drop win option that takes place daily. Better yet, registered players have a chance of winning the jackpot up to 3X per day.
This exclusive attraction is linked to Captain8 games, and big wins are possible on any of the slots in the series. As a central component of the product leadership and content strategy at 888, creating exclusive, new games with high-quality third-party providers is paramount. Cutting-edge technology, feature-rich attractions, and service excellence guarantee a fun-filled betting milieu for players. The Captain8 franchise has gone live across multiple regulated markets, including Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ontario, Canada, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and others. The premier licensing authorities – the UKGC and MGA are also included. Soon, Romania (third quarter 2022), New Jersey, USA, and Michigan, USA, will go live (first quarter 2023). In addition, in 2023, the in-house game studio will release multi-game slot franchises.
The Director of Gaming Content, Ofir Gal-Mor, said,
Launching our first thematic multi-game release is a huge milestone for Section8. It is rare for suppliers to create such content-rich franchises of such high calibre as Captain8, let alone for an operator-owned studio. This demonstrates our commitment to being a leading in-house content-creation studio and our professional ambition to create best-in-class real-money games. Captain8 showcases the massive progress made by Section8 in all fields of game production, including math design, visual design, execution, certification, and delivery. With the six games of the new franchise, Section8's offering now exceeds 140 games in production, and we aim to reach 150 by the end of the year before targeting a total of 200 exclusive in-house games by the end of 2024. I want to thank the Section8 team for their continued hard work, dedication, and commitment to creating some of the best content in the industry.
888casino VP B2C, Talya Benyamini commented,
Leveraging our proprietary technology to create truly unique experiences for our players worldwide is critical to us at 888casino, and the exclusive launch of 'Power 8 Jackpot' and the fun new game series, Captain8, is a fantastic example of this focus in practice. With engaging new features, best-in-class graphics, and a first-of-its-kind series format, we believe that the Captain8 series will surprise and delight players in the coming months, which we are hugely excited about.
