Pariplay and Atari have announced the launch of a new real-money slot, based on the iconic arcade game Pong.

After celebrating its 45th anniversary last year, Pong becomes the latest branded release by video games publisher Atari.

Previous branded releases under the partnership with gaming systems and content provider Pariplay includes Asteroids, Star Raiders and Black Widow.

Fred Chesnais, chief executive officer of Atari, said: “Pong is the game that has defined the video game industry. It was natural for us to bring it to real-money slot machines, as it is a game that millions have enjoyed and keep enjoying. Best of luck to all players.”

With an availability in over a dozen languages, this new HTML5 offering has been designed to ensure cross platform engagement.

The new release also further expands Pariplay’s iGaming content portfolio of over 100 video and classic slots, instant-win games, online scratch cards and bingo games.

Richard Mintz, commercial director at Pariplay, said: “As the first truly popular arcade video game, Pong holds a unique place in the history of gaming and we’re very excited about its addition to our robust collection of online slots.

“Designed to appeal to a wide range of players with varying experience levels, we’re confident that Pong will prove to be Pariplay’s greatest Atari branded slot yet.”
