Larry Casino is fronted by legendary video game character Larry Laffer and the theming carries through into the loyalty scheme and promotions. Unfortunately, as adult rated as Larry is, there seems to have been a problem with using a video game character to promote a casino in the UK and they are no longer accepting UK players.
Larry is a cartoon character but as X-rated as they come; if you haven’t come across him before (and if you were around in the 80s and 90s you surely must have done), this unlikely hero, who is middle aged, balding and unfashionably attired, made his debut in the 1987 computer game Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. The original version used a text interface and rudimentary graphics and the 1991 remake upgraded it to a point and click adventure game. Leisure Suit Larry became a series and despite (or arguably because of) being “crude, suggestive, full of innuendo and double entendres and designed to appeal to the worst aspects of human nature” (according to a contemporaneous review in PC Format magazine) it is regarded as a classic and millions of copies were sold. A high definition remake of the original game came out in 2013.
Larry is a great choice of character to front a casino; his original adventures took place in a thinly disguised Las Vegas and even involved playing blackjack and slots. He’s humorous rather than glamorous and this keeps the focus on light – but adult themed – entertainment. The owners of Larry Casino actually have the rights to the character so he’s the real thing, not an imitation. The Larry’s World loyalty scheme revolves around helping Larry to get a date with Kym, the manager of the casino and along the way players can open “jokeboxes” and mystery chests and collect Larry coins. These can be redeemed in the Larry shop for bonuses, spins or plays on the Larry Roulette bonus games. There’s even a regular raffle to win a Larry action figure.
So, on to the casino itself. There’s a great selection of slots including recent titles such as Highlander, Not Enough Kittens, Planet of the Apes, Mighty Arthur and Moby Dick as well as perennial favourites such as Bonanza, Gonzo’s Quest, Cool Jewels, Raging Rhino, Foxin’ Wins, Esqueleto Explosivo, Twin Spin, Immortal Romance, Super Monopoly Money….the list goes on. Progressive jackpots include the big three – Mega Fortune, Mega Moolah and Hall of Gods – and there’s also low, medium and high stake versions of various table games and a live casino section.
If you like your gamification to be based on adult humour, this could be the slot site for you.
