Ikibu’s Beta Version Available 24 August 2016David Burgundy | 17 Aug 2016
Gaming and service provider FAST TRACK and Chance Hill, a respected iGaming company which operates B2C casino sites, have teamed up to launch a new experience in online casinos. This new venture, called Ikibu, is intended to immerse players in a whole new way. Online and mobile players, whether in Canada or anywhere else, will be transported to another world, no matter what is going on around them.
Ikibu’s software is provided by world-renowned providers Play N Go, NetEnt and Microgaming, ensuring players enjoy high-quality design and slick functionality no matter what game they choose from the line-up. A new partnership between FAST TRACK and Enteractive also means that players will enjoy the support of a professional customer service team at any time of the day or night.
While many details of Ikibu are yet to be revealed, the experience promises to be very different and offers a whole new way to enjoy online and mobile casino play. Rather than simply visiting a slickly designed lobby and choosing what to play, or earning Loyalty Points for regular visits, players will be much more actively involved. Entering the site will mean that they travel to the land of Ikibu as a native, called an Iki, and that as they play, they move through the map and progress through the levels while competing for Seeds and other rewards. The Seeds are then spent at the site’s marketplace, allowing for fully customisable promotions in what is a world-first for online and mobile casinos.
A Beta version of the site is to be launched on the 25th of August 2016, a little less than a month from its official release date on the 14th of September. Mobile and online pre-registered players in Canada will be able to participate in the Beta version, which will be continually monitored and improved upon until the final launch date in September.
Players are eagerly awaiting the final version of Ikibu, but are looking forward to contributing to its development as Beta testers too. The differences between the versions released in August and September will be interesting to observe, and this casino seems set to create a new benchmark in online gaming.
