In addition to extending its reach in the Brazilian market, multi-product content provider Pragmatic Play has once again teamed up with YG Masters partner Reel Kingdom for the release of the highly-anticipated video slot, Snakes and Ladders Megadice.

A twist on the worldwide classic board game, the new slot title is played on a 5×3 grid, with 10 fixed paylines. Players should appreciate the retro 8-bit vibe found throughout the high volatility game, a perfect example being the 10 – A card icon low-paying symbols. Landing five-of-a-kind of those symbols is worth 5-10 times the stake, while high pays include ladders, snakes, bananas and a crown-wearing gorilla, which pay 15-50x the bet for the same line of five.

Game symbols and features:

The Wild Dice symbol will take you to new heights, paying up to 500x the bet when hitting five along a payline. These substitute for all symbols except for the Bonus symbol and land with 1, 2, or 3 dots on them, just like actual dice. The number of dots on the dice represents a 1x, 2x, or 3x multiplier and is applied to the total win of the spin.

The main goal of the game is to trigger the Snakes and Ladders Board Bonus round, which can be done either by landing at least three Bonus symbols or by filling the 11 sections of the snake above the reels by way of the Progressive feature. As mentioned, Wild Dice symbols are worth as much as 500x the bet and when they land, the number of dots they display fills the corresponding sections of the snake above the reels.

If you’re lucky enough to fill all of the snake, the Bonus round will trigger. Changing bets will start the snake filling process from the start, however, progress will be saved if you return to a previous stake.

You’ll play the Bonus round on a 12×12  Snakes and Ladders board with 144 spaces, which players can navigate and unlock more bonuses, such as money rewards and special multipliers.

When there are no longer any dice rolls left to play or when the gorilla head token reaches the last square, the Snakes and Ladders Board Bonus round is over. In the latter scenario, the round ends, but players have a chance to retrigger the feature.

Multifaceted experience:

Commenting on the new game that is sure to be a hit, Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, said…

Snakes and Ladders Megadice™ blends all the joys of playing classic board games with the action and excitement of modern gaming experiences.

“We are thrilled with how the aesthetics and bonus features have combined to create such a multifaceted experience for our players, and hope that the feedback reflects the hard work that went into the development process.”

The new twist on the nostalgic board game follows the recently released ancient Egyptian-themed Might of Ra, alongside Elemental Gems Megaways™, The Ultimate 5, and Colossal Cash Zone™, each of which is part of a portfolio of more than 200 HTML5 titles.

Latin America push:

At the same time as the new game launch, Pragmatic Play has further expanded its footprint in Latin America, after taking its number one slots vertical live with sports betting operator, MarjoSports.

The deal that was originally inked at the end of November 2021, will now see the provider’s slots portfolio, including recent hits such as Elemental Gems Megaways and The Ultimate 5, as well as player favorites like The Dog House Megaways and Big Bass Bonanza, made availabe throughout Brazil at MarjoSports.

Also included in the original agreement, the operator will soon make Pragmatic Play’s live casino portfolio accessible to its customers in the South American country.

In a statement in the press release, Victor Arias, Vice President of Latin American Operations at Pragmatic Play, said MarjoSports is an “exciting operator to be working with” and they look forward to supplying its customers with their slots, live casino and virtual sports verticals.

“This gives its players an amazing variety of content and we are seeing great interaction with the slots that are now live as we await the upcoming release of the Live Casino titles too.”

The partnership enables the multi-product content provider to continue to expand its audience in Brazil as well as in the wider Latin American iGaming market where it has experienced substantial growth through a series of similar commercial deals recently.

Also commenting on the tie-up, Jorge Barbosa Dias, Director at MarjoSports, said…
