bwin Adds GTECH G2’s Mini Aztec Keno Progressive to Games Portfolio

Mini and full-size game both tied to same €50K+ progressive jackpot

bwin has added the mini version of GTECH G2’s popular Aztec Keno progressive jackpot game to their already impressive portfolio of side games. The full size version of Aztec Keno launched on the sportsbetting site’s Games tab last month. 

“We have found that while they’re waiting for results, sports bettors like to play a quick, simple game. Our Mini Games are great for that,” said Kevin O’Neal, spokesperson for bwin.

Aztec Keno was developed by Dynamite Idea, one of the four software companies making up the GTECH igaming division. bwin has offered games from Dynamite Idea since 2006 and has featured casino games from Boss Media, also now part of GTECH G2.  They now have 12 full size Fortune games as well as 4 mini games including Triple Chance Hi Lo, Spin N Win and the new Casino Dice. These are small, fast games with sometimes massive winnings and all are also available in full size and mini game format.

The appeal of side games and mini games is simplicity and instant gratification. To play the new Aztec Keno progressive jackpot, players just pick 1 to 15 numbers and watch to see if the 20 lucky numbers drawn match their selection. The more numbers they match, the more they win, as well as the chance to win the progressive jackpot. The game plays quickly and it’s back to the sports book.

Both the full- and mini-size version of Aztec Keno are tied to the same progressive jackpot which was seeded at €10K in September and is currently over €50K.

“We’re a ‘House of Games’. We offer a wide selection of games from a variety of software providers,” said O’Neal. “Games from GTECH G2 have proven to be very popular with our customers, and products from GTECH G2 integrate well with our management systems.”
