Reel Deal LIVE! Gets Even BIGGER With the Addition of Tons of New Game Content!

Cedar Falls, Iowa– February 28, 2011– Phantom EFX, a leading developer and publisher of PC based casino and card game titles, announced today another slew of updates to its casino-themed massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, Reel Deal LIVE! , is debuting in March. These additions, including a level cap increase, the ability to complete quests in a group, new adventure quests and more, will follow on the heels of last September’s major batch of updates, which included the all new Egyptian-themed floor featuring games and slots from 2010’s Reel Deal Slots: Mysteries of Cleopatra and Reel Deal Casino: Valley of the Kings, brand new additional achievements, new prizes for gamers to win and much more.

Constructed in full 3D, Reel Deal LIVE! is a completely virtual, online community where gamers can socialize, place bets and experience the“high roller” life without ever wagering a dime. Reel Deal LIVE! offers players the opportunity to take their character from a simple tourist in a casino to one of the most powerful gamblers around. With Reel Deal LIVE! , players are given incredible casino quests, unique friendship opportunities and the freedom to master their own gaming universe.

Included in next month’s updates to Reel Deal LIVE! are:

    <*> Updates to New Content Rollouts: Rather than doing monthly dumps of new content on a single day, Reel Deal LIVE! updates will now be rolled out slowly over each month, allowing for more updates on a daily and weekly basis! <*> Brand New Casino Adventure Quest: Following in the footsteps of the previous Adventure Quests, Zodiac and Pirate Adventure, this month’s quest is Egyptian Adventure! Head outside of the casino to interact with fun new NPCs and other LIVE players on a mysterious and exciting trip that involves tons of new games, new slots and content that you cannot find on the casino floor– it’s literally out of this world! <*> Group Adventure: For the first time ever, Phantom will be introducing group questing! Now you can align yourself with as few as one or as many as nine friends to band together and attempt to take down some of the more challenging quests that the Reel Deal LIVE! casino has to offer. Some quests are designed for group play and offer exclusive prizes for use throughout the rest of the casino! <*> Increased Level Cap: The new level threshold has been increased by five from 60 to 65 allowing for further character expansion and abilities. <*> New Power: Now available to all players is the awesome ability to turn one entire reel wild! Earn this game-changing ability through regular play, add it to your custom Power Bar for use on ANY slot machine and watch the jackpots roll in! <*> New Mini Game: A brand new separate slot machine, the Silver Pyramid Machine, will be released. Players will collect special tokens through normal play that are only usable at the Silver Pyramid Machine, which will offer a host of different prizes not found anywhere else in the casino!
More updates to Reel Deal LIVE! are planned for the future, as Phantom EFX continues to craft it into a leading online gaming and social destination. For more information, please visit: www.reeldealliveonline.com.
