Pragmatic Play releases Spartan King slot
Leading industry supplier and developer of slots Pragmatic Play has issued a call to arms for slot fans that can go back to Ancient Greece with Spartan King. The slot evokes the rise and fall of the namesake city-state.
In Spartan King, players experience a 5-reel and 40-payline slot that is reminiscent on Hollywood blockbuster ‘300’, although Pragmatic Play has said that Spartan King is an independent interpretation of the popular saga.
In Spartan King, players are welcome to rich gameplay with the backdrop overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. In the game, players have access to flexible betting limits ranging from 0.20 units to 100.00 units, in several supported currencies.
Furthermore, Spartan King comes with an above-average RTP, offering 96.6% and combining this with high volatility gameplay. In other words, Spartan King sacrifices hit ratio for the sake of better payouts.
Slot Features and Symbols
In Spartan King, the main part of the action is pivoted around a Wild Multiplier symbol, which takes a total of four squares on the grid and may land anywhere, substituting for any symbols that are necessary to complete a payline.
Another highly appreciated feature in the slot is the free spins round, which boosts your chances of success. Based on how many Scatter Symbols you manage to land on your reels, you get a fixed number of free spins. The free spins are listed as 8, 10 or 12, and they come with multipliers applied to them at a rate of 1x, 5x and 20x of the size of your bet respectively. The shield may appear during the free spins round as well, boosting the maximum multiplier to 25x.
Overall, Spartan King has a straightforward approach to slot gaming. The title relies on a good theme, well-executed design, flawless gameplay and beautiful design, all part of Pragmatic Play’s own kitchen. However, the slot doesn’t necessarily excel in terms of gamification. The big wild symbol is entertaining and thematic, and it boosts wins but doesn’t necessarily add to the excitement.
Kindred Gains Access to Pragmatic’s Live Portfolio
In another big move of the week, Kindred Group secured a landmark deal with Pragmatic Play for the latter’s Live Casino portfolio.
Pragmatic Play’s growing footprint in the live dealer gaming vertical has made it a desirable partner as attested by the latest link-up. As a result, Pragmatic is rolling out Blackjack, Roulette Azure, Baccarat, and Speed Baccarat as part of Kindred’s offer. According to executives, the addition of the Live Casino portfolio allows the two companies to align their products closer together.
Cristiano Blanco, who heads Kindred’s gaming department, has welcomed the new product expansion, noting that Pragmatic Play’s live titles are bound to keep Kindred customers entertained for years to come.
Pragmatic Play has had a successful year so far, releasing five distinct slot titles a month all throughout 2020. In addition, the company has been delivering consistent results across its Live Casino and Bingo departments.
