Playtech, one of the world’s leading online gaming content providers, now offers an online slot game that provides additional game features and functionality for those players that play the game online and in land based betting shops.
Tiki Paradise launched earlier this month as an exclusive game with Playtech’s partner Coral that saw the game available in 300 betting shops in the United Kingdom. Following the exclusivity period, the game will also be made available to other gaming partners. In total, the slot game will be available in some 1800 betting shops within the UK.
Being promoted as the “first-of-its-kind Omni-Channel game,” Tiki Paradise features five-reels with 10 win-lines that pays out when three or more symbols are in view from left to right. A ‘Wild Nights’ feature is activated randomly and offers additional winning opportunities including a stacked wild reel and the prospect of a ‘Win Shuffle’ where the reels are shuffled giving players an added win benefit.
The slot also includes three ‘Free Spins’ scatter symbols that award 10 free spins and a “Wild” symbol.
Players wanting to take advantage of the cross-platform benefits in the Coral shops are required to ply the game both online (or on a mobile device) and in betting shops. Coral players are required to play the game in shops using their Coral Connect Card. As the game rolls out to other operators, players are expected to be required to identify themselves via the operator’s reward program in order to unlock the additional features and functionality.
Additional game features become available when players then engage with the game online. A 14 day window after playing in shop is in place for those looking to add features during the free spin bonus portion of the game.
A fifth feature is opened up when the player returns to play in shop. The unlocked features will remain unlocked as long as the player returns to play the game again either online or in shops within the next 14 days. See your online or retail operator for complete details. Other online games from Playtech can be found at various online gaming providers across the internet. Takebonus offers a list of some of these providers and the available bonuses on offer.
“I am extremely proud to have launched Tiki Paradise. Playtech is showing exceptional innovation. It is a first-ever Omni channel content launch and Playtech’s newest and smartest addition to our Playtech ONE platform,” said Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer at Playtech.
“The Playtech ONE platform is the first to allow these types of enhanced rewards and free spins features across retail and online domains – delivering a single coherent user experience across retail, online and mobile to ultimately supply our operators with the leading technology in the gaming industry.
“The game is equally beneficial to the licensee as it both increases Coral Connect Omni-channel signs ups and incentivises Know Your Customer (KYC) with less anonymous play and more responsible gaming,” Akad added.
Mark Kemp, Product Director for Ladbrokes Coral, said: “This is a first of its kind and we’re delighted to be announcing it exclusively in partnership with Playtech. Not only will our Coral Connect customers find Tiki Paradise incredibly engaging and great fun to play, it enables us to develop and launch further integrated Omni-channel content that significantly increases the gaming experience for players who play slots in our shops and on mobile.”
