On the back of its new mining-themed slot release and Pragmatic Play has increased its player base in the Romanian market after partnering with Play Online Solutions for its Newton-powered online casinos including Winner.ro, Elite Slots and Seven.ro.
The new alliance will see a collection of the multi-product content provider’s slot titles go live across the operator’s three brands, with players in Romania able to experience recently released spinners such as its farm-yard inspired, Barn Festival, and Rainbow Gold and Extra Juicy Megaways.
In addition to slots, Pragmatic Play’s exciting Drops & Wins promotion will also span the trio of online casinos, with its proven engagement and retention booting ability.
Commenting on the recent tie-up, Georga Nilca, Chief Operating Officer for Winner.ro, said that it has been “a pleasure” to partner with Pragmatic Play “in this latest deal, we aim to provide our users the widest array of quality slots available and adding its industry leading titles to our selection will help engage new customers whilst retaining existing ones.”
And in his statement in the company news release, Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, said they are “delighted” to launch their slot offerings with Play Online Solutions as they continue to grow in Romania.
“Slots are a strong vertical for this market and this additional partnership will help deliver our award-winning titles to a broader player base.”
The content supply agreement marks further growth for the Malta-headquartered provider after a strong start to the new year with a comprehensive product deal with Latin American operator Locosbet, up to its most recent with Romania’s largest sports betting operator, Superbet.
Pragmatic Play’s new partnership with Play Online Solutions follows the launch of its new slot title, Drill That Gold, where players will come across a Drill Feature, Spin Modifiers, Gold Spins, and an Ante Bet.
The high volatility addition to the provider’s fast-growing collection plays on a 5-reel, 3-row grid filled with mining-inspired tools across 20 paylines, a wild symbol that can hit on all reels and substitutes for all symbols except the bonus, and chances of a x5,000 max win.
Gameplay & features:
During base gameplay, landing a full stack of miners hits from top to bottom on any reel, it transforms into a giant sliver drilling symbol, which, after expanding becomes wild and can reveal a cash prize ranging from 2x to 100x the total bet. When spins don’t result in a win, there is still a chance to trigger a random modifier that could change that non-winning spin into a win of a minimum of 10x the total bet. It could also produce enough bonus symbols to trigger the Gold Spins bonus round.
Landing 3, 4, or 5 bonus symbols triggers the bonus round and awards 6, 8, or 10 free spins, respectively. In the bonus round, in addition to the silver drill, a new golden drill can appear. This new drill also expands and afterward transforms into wild and guarantees a random cash prize of 5x, 10, 15x, 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 200x, 500x, or a whopping 1,000x the bet.
While either drill can award the same random cash prizes during the free spins round, unlike the golden drill, the silver drill does not guarantee a random direct money award.
What’s more, when a miner symbol lands during free spins, whatever reel it’s on nudges up or down to reveal a full stack of miners, which, as mentioned, changes int0 either a silver or a golden drill. Wait! There’s more! Landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 bonus symbols during the bonus round retriggers 4, 6, 8, or 10 free spins, respectively.
There is also an Ante bet feature, which gives players the option to boost the bet multiplier by 25 percent (25x per bet line). When active, the RTP drops ever so slightly to 96.45 percent from 96.49 percent, and when activated in the base game, the drill symbol will always be golden, guaranteeing that direct money award we talked about and increasing the chances of realizing the game’s 5,000x max win.
Barzely had this to say about the new mining-themed video slot…
“Drill That Gold™ delivers our players an underground adventure packed with mystery prizes and the ability to unlock wild reels that can see them gain a treasure trove of riches within the mines.
“Nudging elements seen in many land-based casinos are a key feature of the bonus round and our team integrated these seamlessly into the free spins mode.”
