Bill O'Reilly vs Jeremy Glick - The Online Gambling Goliaths go Head to Head

Author: Bill OReilly

Have you ever wondered who comes up with the ideas for all the weird and wacky UK online slots? Well wonder no more; Jeremy Glick is one of the leading casino slots designers in the UK and in this head-to-head, our very own promotions manager Bill O’Reilly talks with Jeremy Glick to discuss their illustrious careers in the online gambling industry.

GLICK: What, in your opinion has been the biggest developments in the industry over the last five years?

O’REILLY: The obvious answer is the explosion of mobile gambling. But more recently with the introduction of deposit by phone casino options becoming more popular, playing slots and casino games on mobile is even more accessible to players.

BILL O’REILLY: Many of your slots have outstanding themes, Jeremy. Tell me, how do you decide on the subjects for your games?

JEREMY GLICK: Well, as you know Bill, the biggest consideration when developing slots games is the audience we are targeting. We rely on a great deal of prior research and we aim for an aesthetic close to what is often seen in movies or video games that appeal to our target audience. Next, we’ll put our own spin on the theme – perhaps 3D animations, a quirky character, etc.

O’REILLY: One of your wackiest themes has to be that depicted in the popular slot game, Warped. Tell me more about that.

GLICK: Warped is a surreal 3D slot game with vibrant graphics and an endearing main character with an eccentric appearance. Whilst unique in its theme, some might describe the style of Warped slot as Alice-in-Wonderland-esque. It is bright, bold and offers some fantastically entertaining bonus features...

O’REILLY: And the advertisement is incredibly eye-catching!

GLICK: Oh yes, it is indeed.

O'REILLY: Who signed-off the advertisement?

GLICK: I can’t say for sure. That wasn’t me.

O'REILLY: Hold it, hold it, hold it, Jeremy. You're the only one who signed-off this advertisement...

GLICK: Ha ha, I wish I could take credit for it. But sadly, that's not true.

O’REILLY: Well, OK. Tell us about the main bonus feature in Warped.

GLICK: Quite typically, the players must land 3 scatters to trigger the Warped View bonus feature. I won’t give everything away, but let’s just say, the character suddenly has the ability to warp through things - into objects, that kind of thing. It’s super cool. There are free spins and a click and reveal trail involved. It’s crazy, it’s great fun, it’s a big hit with punters who love video game-style slots... and the odds of a decent win is high, which is always a bonus!

O’REILLY: You clearly have a knack for creativity! What inspires this?

GLICK: I have always had a vivid imagination. If I’m not working, my head is usually buried in a fantasy novel or glued to a sci-fi movie. Also, when I was a young kid, I was a bit of a rascal and used to get myself into all kinds of trouble. I would come up with elaborate and wonderful stories in an attempt to keep myself out of trouble with my Mom. She soon became wise to my antics, but there were one or two excuses that she still thinks are true to this day!

O'REILLY: Man, I hope your mom isn't watching this.

GLICK: Sorry, Mom. Haha. I’m sure you can relate Bill; I have often admired many of your ideas for innovative online slots.

O’REILLY: Thanks! You can check many of them out at Gold Rush UK. Meanwhile, I’m off to trigger the bonus feature in Warped.

GLICK: That means we're done?

O'REILLY: We're done. It’s been a pleasure as always.
