As a number of new igaming titles grace the CasinoBeats inbox, sit back and get to grips with a select few in one handy bite-size chunk.
Ganapati – Pacquiao One Punch KO
After first teasing details three months ago, igaming supplier Ganapati has taken its new slot title, developed alongside Manny Pacquiao, live.
The firm’s first global branded game is lauded as “an important step” by Ganapati, as it reemphasises a goal of becoming a B2B brand with a B2C mentality.
Pacquiao One Punch KO is set on a Tokyo rooftop boxing ring, with cascading reels and bonus rounds. The game features imagery of Pacquiao in action as well as personalised symbols representing highlights of his career.
Ganapati, which develops games featuring Japanese culture, has said that the title aims to highlight the longstanding mutually supportive relations between Japan and the Philippines, as well as giving back to the local Filipino community.
Habanero – Wizards Want War
Habanero is introducing two wizards, one virtuous and the other villainous, and challenges players with landing both on reel one and reel five to unlock a deadly duel which awards up to six wilds upon conclusion.
Duel wins help players accumulate extra wins, with multipliers up to 9x your stake paid out if successive battles are triggered, while 10 free games are awarded when select symbols appear.
Toni Karapetrov, head of corporate communications at Habanero, commented: “There’s nothing more magical than big wins and players can achieve them with our latest release, Wizards Want War!
“Featuring a virtuous and a villainous wizard, players can watch the two go head-to-head in spell-binding fashion thanks to immersive graphics and sounds. It’s sure to prove popular.”
Pariplay – Gems & Riches
Pariplay promises “a bold vision of the future” in its latest release, which boasts a 95.98 per cent return-to-player rate and see translations offered in over 20 languages.
The special features of Gems & Riches include wild multipliers, hold and respin function and multiple jackpots. The wild multiplier triggers once a wild symbol appears in the centre of the play area, awarding multipliers ranging between 2× and 10×.
Hold and respin gets activated when four or more white gems appear in the base game, automatically granting three respins.
“Gems & Riches is a one of a kind video slot, inspired by a popular and successful land-based game, which Pariplay has brought to the online world for the first time,” noted Richard Mintz, commercial and marketing director of Pariplay.
“Moving away from the classic slot layout, the game will have players eager to earn tremendous rewards through its unique hexagonal design. Gems and Riches also packs distinctive features geared towards both casual gamers and real money slot enthusiasts.”
Yggdrasil – Golden Chip Roulette
Promising “a game-changing twist on a classic product,” Yggdrasil has launched its first ever roulette title – providing something a little different on CasinoBeats’ regular round-up.
Golden Chip Roulette comes complete with features such as pinch-to-zoom and random multipliers, as well as introducing a Golden Chip function to the tables.
Every chip placed as a straight bet turns gold, while an inner wheel generates a random multiplier of x10, x50, x100, x250, or even x500, significantly higher than the x36 on standard roulette.
Johan John, product owner table games at Yggdrasil, stated: “This is our first roulette game which we are very proud to add to our portfolio of innovative table game products.
“While providing a familiar betting space for all table games players, Golden Chip Roulette is packed full of new features that focus on offering an enhanced user experience across all devices, and that will keep players engaged while significantly increasing acquisition and retention rates for operators.”
