As May pops up on the calendar, we drag ourselves away from our computer screens long enough to realise that the blossom has started blooming and warmer days are on their way. The start of summer is upon us (yay) and here in the UK, we get to enjoy a rare day off with the May Day Bank Holiday (Monday 1st May). We also welcome the start of The Highland Games in Bonnie Scotland and what’s more, Leicester Square hosts some A-list celebs on the red carpet of a huge summer blockbuster premiere. There are lots to choose from this month so let this blogpost guide you towards some worthwhile festivities and see how we can help you incorporate them into your sites.
See what we can offer?
Eyecon can offer you a vast range of games whatever you choose to do for your customers this month whether it be summer, sport or pop-culture related. Coinciding with the bank holiday, May Day celebrations bring summer fairs, bell clad Morris dancers and ribbon plaited maypoles. For this outdoorsy theme, we offer the Secret Garden a true classic and one of our most favourite games. Often though, people are found pounding the pavements on the bank holiday looking for some summer bargains, a context for which we recommend two fabulous 25 pay line games Shopping Spree (desktop & mobile version available) and Makeover Magic (embedded and stand alone versions). For those interested in bringing raw strength and muscle power to your site, the start of The Highland Games would be a great backdrop on which to hang our popular game Kingdom of Cash in which the player can fight knights and wizards. Like most of our games, this one has both desktop and mobile versions. And if you fancy something more Hollywood, Pirate Princess, Twinkle and Emperor’s Fortune would be ideal games with which to promote the UK premiere of the epic Pirates of the Caribbean 5 film. All three games offer the maximum 25 pay line games.
Read on for some colourful promotional mechanisms that we know would entice your players to visit your site and play.
Some ideas for May’s promotions
Bank Holiday Frolics
Let your customers enjoy the bank holiday in style by bringing them the feeling of the outdoors and nature! They can nab a bottle of Pimms and a matching Cocktail Jug if they wager more than £10 on either Secret Garden games.
Man vs Beast
Bring the spirit of The Highland Games to your site; an event like no other that combines culture, athleticism, field games like caber tossing and even bagpipe competitions. Brute strength and animal instinct make a nice link between the Highland Games and our Kingdom of Cash game. Our suggested promotion mechanism is: players that deposit and play £10 can enter a draw to win a special jackpot.
Pirates love a good fortune (perfect for the release of the new “Pirates of The Caribbean” film)
Players who wager at least £20 on Pirate Princess or Twinkle will receive 10 free spins for the game, which they chose.
Coming up on our next blogpost, we’ll show you how you can bring the joys of spring to your players using some of our fantastic games!
