After kicking the month of November off with its latest action-adventure online slot game, Cluster Tumble, Relax Gaming has added Malta-based HTML5 games developer Spinmatic Entertainment to its successful Powered By Relax Program.

Choosing Relax as a distribution partner will see the Naxxar-headquartered slots studio benefit from the B2B iGaming provider and aggregator’s speed-to-market and technical prowess. While its popular games such as Fruity Beats Xtreme and Sizzling Blaze now become accessible to a far-reaching distribution network that features tier-one operators across key European regulated markets.

Explaining the significance of the alliance, Adam Spisak, Sales Director for Spinmatic said choosing a distribution partner is “a key element for any kind of business” and their pick in Relax Gaming was a “very easy choice” for them.

“The reputation of their programme is second to none, and we are confident that they will offer us the scope we require in order to strengthen our growth.”

2021 contributions:

Established in 2017, Spinmatic’s games library boasts more than 70 quality HTML5 titles and looks to the new partnership to “significantly increase its exposure in the industry.”

This year, the up-and-comer has incorporated a number of innovative concepts, such as Gamble Feature and Buy Feature, and has, for the first time, entered the Scratchcard and Crash Game markets while also adding a new Xtreme! product line, which boasts “the highest paying slots ever with all RTPs over 99%.” Additionally, the B2B casino slots provider has also improved its own SpinEngine 3.0 framework, now offering players “more fun and comfort.”

Also commenting on the launch, Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer for Relax Gaming said in a company news release

“It’s with great pleasure that we welcome aboard Spinmatic to our Powered By Relax programme. It has already made its mark in slots provision with a number of high-quality casino titles and that’s exactly what we look for to boost the content we offer.”

Spinmatic follows other studio additions in 2021, with Relax integrating online games provider RubyPlay’s suite of titles in July and recruiting Asia-based iGaming provider Spadegaming as a new studio partner in June.

New slot release:

The collaboration follows the launch of Relax’s highly volatile action-adventure slot, Cluster Tumble, the fifth installment in the popular Tumble series that started with the original hit, Temple Tumble Megaways in February 2019, followed by Tower Tumble, TNT Tumble, and Templar Tumble in March this year.

The latest iteration invites players to help the game’s brave explorer find her husband who has gone missing in the Himalayan wilderness, and in the process try to win up to 20,000x their bet.

Much like the game’s tatted protagonist who has to climb the Temple’s summit, players have to navigate the 8-row, 8-column grid, removing all the heavy stone tiles that are blocking their way.

The game utilizes a cluster pays system and has a fluctuating number of symbols in play. Winning combinations, which are 4 or more matching symbols connected horizontally or vertically, must be formed in order to remove all of the surrounding blocks, or three scatter symbols must hit in order to access the Temple.

Players will get a bit of help from wilds and power-up blocks enhanced with magical features, including Wild, Lightning Wins and Fire Transform, which are offered when power-up blocks are active, converting into targeted symbols. Triggering the extra spins feature is accomplished by either landing a trio of scatter symbols or by removing every stone block in the main game. Once the feature is activated, five spins are awarded. Clearing all the blocks from the entire board in extra spins awards players with three more spins while also boosting the multiplier by three.

Series success:

Relax CPO Hammon had the following to say about the successful range…

“The Tumble series has time and again proven itself as we continue to drive differentiation. With such rich variety to draw upon, it’s unsurprising that we are on the fifth game and it keeps going strong. Featuring a standout heroine, we are confident that Cluster Tumble is going to hold its own  or outperform the best in the series.”
