More New Slots from Chartwell13:20 EDT Thursday, August 11, 2011CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 11, 2011) - Chartwell Technology Inc. ("Chartwell" or the "Company"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Amaya Gaming Group Inc. ("Amaya Gaming") (TSX VENTURE:AYA), is a leading provider of games, gaming systems and platform for the regulated online casino gaming industry, announces the release of three exciting slot games in the month of July. Hot on the heels of the June 30th release of their immensely popular flagship slot, Vampires vs Werewolves™, Chartwell continued their momentum by releasing the Call of the Colosseum™, Thundering Zeus™ and Lost Temple™; bringing their year-to-date game release count to 32. This is also the first set of games released as part of Chartwell's new ownership structure under Amaya Gaming. The extremely popular Roman-themed 25-line slot, Call of the Colosseum™ offers players a generous free spins feature and a wild symbol with a twist. Players have the opportunity to win up to 10 free spins with doubled prize amounts and the chance to win an additional 1 - 3 free spins when the "Emperor" wild symbol appears. The Emperor signals players with either a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" to determine whether additional games are awarded. With Thundering Zeus™, players are transported to new heights in this internationally popular Greek mythology-themed slot game. When the almighty wild symbol appears on the 3rd reel, players are rewarded with 3 free spins while Zeus thunders to life in the expanding wild animation. This feature keeps players motivated as they play towards the 3x multiplier bonus round. During bonus play, 3 matching Greek coins reveal up to a generous 20 free spins reward. A BIG WIN event is triggered any time a player wins 1000+ credits.Lost Temple™is Chartwell's first 1024 ways slot - giving players copious amounts of potential winning combinations in this South American action/adventure-themed slot. Instead of pay lines, the Wild icon substitutes for all symbols (with the exception of the Temple Bonus symbol). During the "Temple Steps" bonus round, players select their desired path up an ancient staircase to play for a reward of up to 12 free spinswith an 8x multiplier. A BIG WIN event is triggered on any win of 1000+ credits ensuring even more winning opportunities. "Summer doesn't slow us down," noted David Acorn, COO.
