Marathonbet deepens Man United partnership with Pachinko launch

Marathonbet has enhanced its partnership with Manchester United, to launch a “world first” co-branded Pachinko skill-based casino game, entitled Score Legend.

The online bookie, the official betting partner of the Red Devils, has launched the Japanese inspired pinball game, which will see supporters able to enjoy the offering whilst immersed in a Manchester United themed environment.

Score Legend, which has the same gameplay as Pachinko, sees players drop mini footballs into a pinball-like machine, with an overall aim of getting as many balls as possible into the back of the net, therefore increasing your winnings in the process.

Michael Rasmussen, head of global marketing and PR on behalf of Marathonbet, said: “We’re all about the extraordinary at Marathonbet and are excited to be able to offer our customers a highly enjoyable Pachinko-based game in Score Legend, all while immersed in Manchester United colours and emblems.

“We’re confident the exclusive skill element added into the game will make the experience all the more enjoyable for players.”

Detailing what makes this offering stand out as an industry first, and differentiates it from the original, is its skill based elements, “where users can intervene when pins occasionally turn into Manchester United players, allowing for full control and a greater chance to score”.

It is hoped that Marathonbet and the Old Trafford side can build upon the success of the co-branded live casino, launched in October 2016.
