Leisure Suit Larry, the video game anti-hero who first appeared in 1987, is now the doyen of a new online casino. The Vegas-style casino combines social gaming with real money slots and other traditional casino gaming. LarryCasino, designed and animated in the style of the video games to look like a Caribbean hotel and casino resort, features games that make use of social gaming and social gaming dynamics.

Naked Resort boasts different levels that players need to unlock by acquiring various objects Larry needs, as well as various characters, Larry’s custom Roulette wheels, and surprise boxes. If players manage to recover the needed objects, they will win coins that can be redeemed in the casino shop.

The online casino is compatible with smartphones and tablets, and has been live for a few months. In that time, more than 50 000 players have signed up for accounts; a number that continues to grow. The new casino is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority.

Meet Larry Laffer

Socially inept, balding, middle-aged, and with a penchant for polyester suits, Leisure Suit Larry game series star character Larry Laffer is a true underdog. The game is the brain-child of Al Lowe, and was first published by Sierra Online in 1987. Sierra continued publishing the game until 2009, when the series’ publication was taken over by Codemasters.

The game series follows the misadventures of Larry as he continues his eternal quest to seduce only the most beautiful and buxom of women. While the game series does contain some fairly explicit adult-themed material, that which appears in the main game is censored, while the more raunchy scenes are hidden as Easter eggs. While 1987 marked the publication of the first game, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, the story and structure appeared in a 1981 Sierra text adventure game developed by Chuck Benton called Softporn Adventure.

The original game was remade in 1991, and was remade again via Kickstarter as Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded in 2013. The character has also appeared in 1988’s Leisure Suit Larry 2, 1989’s Leisure Suit Larry: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals, 1991’s Leisure Suit Larry: Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work, 1994’s Leisure Suit Larry: Shape Up or Slip Out, 1996’s Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail!, 2004’s Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, 2007’s mobile version of Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail!, and 2009’s Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust.
