    This is great and will be very helpful for many affiliates. I also received an email regarding this just the other day.

    We've just signed a new game developer and it's a biggun.

    Quickspin titles will shortly be available in First Look Games. Those with accounts will soon have access to the assets and game info for titles such as the recently launch Tiger's Glory (personally love this game already), Big Bot Crew and Pirate's Charm.

    If you're yet to join First Look Games... now's the time!

    Marketing assets, such as Game Information, Screenshots and MP4 videos are now available for each game title.

This 1024 to 3125 win ways, 5 reel slot is sure to entice the voyager in all of us. Journey through snow-capped fjords and icy Nordic waters to explore the history, myth, and legend of Norse mythology that has held fast throughout the centuries.

    We are happy to announce the arrival of our latest First Look Premium game - Durian Dynamite from Quickspin. Marketing assets such as Game Information, Screenshots, Demo Links and MP4 videos are now available in the Quickspin games folder at First Look Games.

    Durian Dynamite, launching on April 9th, is a fast paced and explosive experience, with blasting spin speeds, chain reactions of exploding wilds, an interactive shooting wilds feature, a bonus picker, and 3D art that will leave you breathless. Fruit has never tasted better!

    Dynamite Wild Feature

    The Dynamite Wild is a real fruit fest! This feature will be triggered by any Dynamite Wild landing on the reels. Your goal here is to launch other Dynamite Wilds from your supply onto the reels, to create as many Wilds as possible.

    If a Dynamite Wild hits another Dynamite Wild, they will both explode and split into two Wilds each. These split Wilds will land in new positions on the grid. If a split Wild happens to land on an additional Dynamite Wild, this Dynamite Wild will also explode and split into two Wild symbols, which means it’s creating a chain reaction. The feature will continue until there are no more explosions on the reels and your Dynamite Wild supply is empty.

    Free Spins

    When you get 3 Bonus Scatter symbols, you will enter the Free Spins Bonus game! By default, you get 6 free spins, but you can upgrade to more spins in the Bonus Picker.

    During the Free Spins Bonus, you’re more likely to get Dynamite Wilds on the reels than in the base game, and you can also get extra Dynamite reels in the Bonus Picker.

    Bonus Picker

    Pick the jar to collect upgrades that you can use in the Free Spins Bonus. The number of upgrades is random, and it can be anything between 3 to 6. You can get the following upgrades:

    Free Spins: Upgrade the number of free spins that you can play (max. 30 extra free spins can be collected).

    Durian Ammo: Get up to 2 extra Durians to be used in the Dynamite Wild feature.

    Dynamite Reels: Upgrade the number of Dynamite reels that are active during the Free Spins Bonus game.

    It could be useful if they had more providers and games available. With time I'm sure they will!

    Hi Joonas –

    Thanks for the feedback, we currently get a large number of affiliates/publishers logging in daily to utilise the marketing assets available which represent the various games in each game developer folder.

    We are extremely happy with First Look Games progress to date in the sense that we’ve be able to slowly build a really useful product for both game developers and affiliate alike. I’m happy to tell you that over the next month the game assets available will grow significantly along with the number of game developers.

    We will also be launching new features for affiliates over the coming month which will provide each affiliate even more detail of each game title and provider, as well as new partnerships which we believe will make First Look Games even more useful for everyone.

    This includes a notification system to your First Look Games account that allows game developers to announce network promotions, events with certain operators and such like.

    We provide a free service to affiliates to easily access material to promote casino games accurately, quickly and before their competition. The great work that affiliates using our system do on the back of that is really appreciated by game developers, who are fast learning that the affiliate channel is the very best way for them to get the key selling points about their game titles out to players.

    We thank you for your continued support and welcome all feedback on First Look Games as we look to continue to develop.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    @tomgalanis what do you think about the age verification for the free to play games for the UK. Can you guys (with the game providers) come up with some solution about this?

    From a personal perspective, I don't believe the ruling from the UKGC is particularly well verbalised and I think needs some further elaboration and guidance from a practical perspective. In the event that it is concretely decided that players from the UK ought not be able to play demo games on affiliate websites or other affiliate marketing channels without a deep age verification process, then First Look Games is full of a host of assets, including game play videos which permit the user to experience the game's features.

    As the situation becomes clearer, we'll work on other solutions with our partners to enable affiliates to maximise marketing opportunities with game developers.
