Check out a brand new online casino at The Casino DB this month with Larry Casino starring the one and only Larry Laffer from the popular Leisure Suit Larry video games.
March 2017 is fast shaping up to be a huge month for the online casino industry with regards to new casino launches. The Casino DB is poised to announce two major new arrivals in the opening weeks, the first of which is based on a long-time loved PC and PlayStation Video Games known as Leisure Suit Larry.
History of Leisure Suit Larry
Originally published way back in 1987 Leisure Suit Larry was the original Adult themed video game featuring an intentionally sleazy looking character named Larry Laffer. A roughly middle aged fellow, Larry’s sole objective in the games was to seduce attractive women with an extraordinarily high failure rate – much to the entertainment of his avid followers, the players!
Leisure Suit Larry Games
The Leisure Suit Larry fast became a hit with it’s followers and a whole series of games followed throughout the 80s and 90s as referenced by Wikipedia including:
- Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards (1987)
- Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (1988)
- Leisure Suit Larry III: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals (1989)
- Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies (Shelved)
- Leisure Suit Larry 5: Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work (1991)
- Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out! (1993)
- Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail (1996)
Post 1996 Larry made another return but this time it was Larry Laude as the main protagonist developed by a different software house releasing two renditions:
- Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude (2004)
- Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust (2009)
Already an unprecedented success Larry’s legend did not stop there. Fans of the games pooled together in 2013 as part of a Leisure Suit Larry Kickstarter campaign that saw over $600,000 raised to develop Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded and remake of the original Land of the Lounge Lizards.
Larry Casino Launch in March 2017
Four years on from the Reloaded game and a whopping 30 years from the original games release in 1987 Larry Casino has just launched bringing back the legendary Larry Laffer with a theme that incorporates the fun-loving feel of the original game series.
5 Minutes With Larry
We spoke to one of the founders of Larry Casino and asked them to answer a few questions about on why they decided to launch a Leisure Suit Larry inspired online casino. Heres what they had to say:
What is LarryCasino?
“LarryCasino is much more than an online casino, it is an adventure. We want to revolutionize the way people entertain themselves by playing online and being able to generate the best gaming experience on the market.
We have merged the world of gaming and gambling. LarryCasino is an online casino adventure, based on the famous video games saga of the 90's Leisure Suit Larry. It is a site completely different from what can be found in the market. When a player registers on the site they get access to an amazing resort complex full of curious characters.
While playing the players will be able to open treasures box that always hide something inside, unlocking objects and new characters every time the player levels up. During the adventure the players will earn 'Coins' that can be redeemed at the Shop with Larry's Roulette (exclusive roulette), raffles (where the players can win a real Larry figure) and much more. It's like creating a game within a game.
Players can choose from more than 500 casino games, slots and live casino from the best providers like NetEnt, NYX, iSoft.”
How was the idea born?
“Casino players have always been the great forgotten of the traditional gambling brands. We love this betting vertical and we also share a lot of interests in video games, social games and gamification and we did not find anything in the market like we had in mind.
Casino players deserve more. We were obsessed with telling a story, creating a world, a proper user experience. And in that obsession to do more than just play games on a web page, we found Larry, a character who fits perfectly with this world. Millions of people around the world have played as Larry at some point in his life. We did and we loved every minute of it so now here we are.
LarryCasino is a casino site for casino players, it is an adventure, it is a story, it is an experience. We have mixed the best of gaming with the best of gambling. From the moment a customer registers on the page he realizes that this is something else. In this industry we get tired of talking about the recreational client but we do very little to create new things. Our ambition is to change this concept and drive player engagement in a way never seen before!”
Online Casino Gamification
Over the past twelve plus months we’ve seen a number of new online casinos appear ready to take on the world of gamification. The likes of Kaboo Casino and the more recent Ikibu Casino have shown that gamification mixed with online casino can really work proving to be a hit with players.
Time will tell if Larry Casino will be a hit with players at The Casino DB and we want to hear from you on your thoughts about this playful new online casino. Clearly the theme won’t appeal to everyone but just like marmite we reckon you’ll either hate it or love it!
