“By continuing to deliver our extremely strong slot vertical to noteworthy brands, we stay true to our growth strategy, and bring incredible gaming experiences to the operator’s customers.”
The latest deal is one in a series of B2B partnerships secured by the provider already this year as it maintains its global growth strategy. And follows previous agreements with Crystalbet for the Georgian market, operator MaxBet Romania, and more recently with Gibraltar-based gambling company 888 Holdings for a dedicated live dealer Blackjack studio for its flagship online casino brand, 888casino.com.
New Crash game:
Just a day earlier Pragmatic debuted its first-ever Crash-style game, Spaceman, which has a max win of 5,000x, a 96.50 percent RTP and is available in a myriad of markets and languages.
The new outer space-themed, social and multiplayer random number generator (RNG) title cements the supplier’s status as a “provider of choice” in the industry, with its “real-time decision making and highly interactive features” the impetus.
The intergalactic thriller starts with the main character floating in the middle of a hazy purple galaxy with planets and stars, where he waits for players to place their bets before blasting off at the beginning of each round. Once a player has set their stake, they simply click “Confirm Bet” to be entered into the next game round. After that, the round starts and the Spaceman takes flight and next to him an increasing multiplier continues to rise until either the win cap is hit or the game crashes.
After the round starts, Cashout and Cashout 50 percent buttons appear, with each of them displaying rising payout values. Choosing the Cashout button secures the prize and removes you from that game, while the Cashout 50 percent button sees you secure half the bet’s win, but you stay in the game with the other half. The latter option allows you the chance cash out later at an increased multiplier. If, however, our Spaceman crashes before you cash out, the bet is lost. Furthermore, if the game crashes at x1, all players lose.
Unlike an online slot where it’s just one person playing the game, here many players can join in and take part together at the same time in a highly social atmosphere. The game also allows players to access leaderboards and detailed bet histories while enjoying live chats. According to the provider, the “provably fair mechanics, coupled with the comprehensive statistics on show, allow for players to create their own strategy in the title.”
Pragmatic Play’s Barzely had this to say about the new launch…
“We are excited to release this intergalactic crash game with such a social atmosphere as per our current live casino vertical. The unique 50% cashout feature shows our commitment to the industry to deliver on player-centric experiences.
“This is yet another opportunity to offer our fans and new players an immersive and engaging environment in a simple and attractive format.”
