IGT’s DoubleDown Casino is slowly expanding the roster of games at the site, although the pace still seems too slow to make the product compelling anytime soon. Since my initial review of the site was posted, they have added two new slot titles and a new Bingo area.
The slot titles are “Tasty Treats”, a dessert-themed slot, and “Flamin’ Cherries”, with a hot-rod design. More interesting is the new area devoted to Bingo, where players can choose to manually daub their cards or auto-daub. The Bingo addition strikes me as the most well-implemented of all the games at the site, so maybe this is a sign of things to come. The game itself is attractively presented with a choice of themes including the default Art Deco. Card styles, daub styles, and game speed are among the options provided. For bingo lovers, this looks like a good environment to play the game for fun.
The new game additions come on the heels of another land-based partner for the online casino, as Bonanza Casino in Reno, NV has agreed to provide the games at their website.
Quoted in the IGT press release, Bonanza’s marketing manager Martin Amba says “Offering our players this tremendous game suite online is defining a new level of entertainment for us. Through the DoubleDown Casino, we are offering our players, both loyal and new, with fun, free-to-play social gaming entertainment, right on our website.”
