Software Provider Launches the Next Generation of Online Slots
More than reels will be spinning soon as Internet software provider Playtech unveils its newest line of virtual interactive slot machines. “Playtech’s new slot project will open the online market to a variety and quality of innovative slot machines rarely seen in virtual casinos today,” said Esther Abramowicz, Marketing Director for Playtech. “We are launching a mul-titude of feature-rich slots with a degree of graphics and designs that are unprecedented.

We believe that they will draw as much attention online as they have in the land-based casinos,” said Abramowicz.
