Microgaming announced on the 24th of January, one day before the opening of the ICE Totally Gaming exhibition in London held between the 25th and the 27th of January, that they have developed the first "true" 3D online video slot. According to Microgaming, the slot is based on the Sterling Silver 5 reel 25 payline. There will be a previewing at the exhibition but the launch of the game will be later this year.
A spokesman of Microgaming comments: “We have been working on 3D gaming content for some time and launched The Great Galaxy Grab online slot in 2009, which was developed using 3D rendered graphics. This time we will be launching a 3D slot which truly brings the world of online gaming to life, and we look forward to unveiling this to operators at ICE.”
