1 Insights, Rocket unveil slot game

Custom software developer 01 Insights Inc. announced a joint venture with Las Vegas-based Rocket Gaming Systems to launch a proprietary, patent-pending slot game, “Diamond Drop.”
 
The game, which debuted at the Global Gaming Expo in November, features five spinning reels at the top of the screen. The player bets on the columns, not paylines as in a traditional video slot. When the player’s first reel spin stops, the symbols drop into the columns below the reels.

“This concept is unique and exciting for video slots,” said CJ Buckley, director of business development for 01 Insights. “We are delighted to have a forward-thinking partner to help us effectively launch this first game in our column-based series. Rocket Gaming Systems brings an established product base, a very progressive view of the gaming business and the ability to make things happen with this new product venture. We are thrilled to bring this product to market so quickly.”

“Diamond Drop is one of those exciting, new and differentiating concepts,” added Rocket Gaming CEO Ron Harris. “Having developed a variety of product with 01 Insights, we know their content is engaging and entertaining for our players, and the underlying architecture of the product is robust and
efficient.”
