Betting along with (or behind) your favorite streamer or brand ambassador, known as Livespins, has been a popular new development in online gaming. Live streamed gaming sessions in itself isn’t new. Other big platforms like Twitch and YouTube have spent years doing it and been very successful in creating an interest around it, bringing in a massive audience.
For a while now, casino players have been able to enjoy this way of gambling and the Livespins games have come from elite game providers like Yggdrasil, iSoftBet and Relax Gaming. 4ThePlayer just announced that they are joining the power roster and the doors to Livespins are now open.
Livespins’ streamers will use 4ThePlayer’s suite of player favorite slots in their streams, allowing audiences to join them on the edge-of-the-seat experience they provide with each spin. This includes titles such as 5 Doggy Dollars, 9K Kong in Vegas and 4 Secret Pyramids.
4ThePlayer Is Growing as a Brand
Looking to position itself as a respected challenger brand in the casino industry, 4ThePlayer was founded by a team of industry veterans that are also online slot players themselves. Focus lies on developing titles that will hit the mark with players through innovation by providing unrivaled fun and entertainment.
Get the Full Livespins Experience
As part of the Livespins experience, streamers will be able to unbox new slot launches, like 5 Doggy Dollars, talking players through the math, mechanics and features packed into each title. They will also showcase 4ThePlayer’s catalog of games to audiences and players, who can get directly involved in the action through the bet-behind system.
Increased Social Interaction
Social interaction is taken to the next level through the ability to communicate with the streamer and other players throughout, and by dropping reactions and emojis. This is what makes Livespins extra fun and different from your normal play.
Seizing the Opportunity
Michael Pedersen, Chief Commercial Officer at Livespins, had the following to say regarding the new company move:
“Livespins provides an entirely new way for players to experience online casinos, but this means it also provides a new format for studios to push their games to players and it’s great that 4ThePlayer has seized the opportunity this presents.”
Henry McLean, who is the Co-founder and Commercial & Marketing Director at 4ThePlayer also shared his excitement and left a statement:
“Live streaming is taking the online casino sector by storm and with Livespins we have a partner that allows us to maximize the potential here but in a way that is sustainable and responsible. Everything we do is about delivering the best player experience – so much so, it’s in our name – and we can’t wait to see Livespins’ streamers fire up the reels on our suite of slots and showcase them to players who can also join in by betting behind the action.”
How Does Livespins Work?
For those of you who have yet to give Livespins a go and want to know more about it, let me give you a quick idea of how you get involved in the latest online casino trend.
Not all casinos offer Livespins but you will definitely find it at BitStarz and mBit. Once you’re logged into your casino account, head over to the Livespins page. The name might vary depending on where you play. For example, BitStarz calls it Bet Along while you will find it under Bet With Streamers at mBit.
Select Your Streamer
You can see which streamers are online and if not, what time will they come on. Once you have selected your preferred streamer, you can go ahead and begin utilizing the wide range of social elements available to you.
Some of the Community features include being able to select an avatar and a nickname, a chat feature that allows you to comment, react with a preselection of eight emojis, and even post gifs, which is a player favorite.
It’s time to look at the actual betting. In the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, you will find a spin button. During a stream, you can click on the button to bet behind the streamer.
When you click the spin button, you get to select the amount you would like to bet per spin and how many spins you would like to bet behind the streamer.
If the streamer you opted to bet with wins, your bet amount will receive the same multiplier value.
