Playtech Launches Space Digger Slot with a Ground-breaking New Feature
The new slot is titled Space Digger and is sure to become a smashing hit as it arrives with a built-in Game Modifier feature, which allows punters to customize play.
The Galaxy Awaits
Developed by Playtech’s Origins studios, this space-themed game brings a special feature which operators can choose to unlock for selected players. Space Digger can be played from a mere $0.10 per spin, boasting an immersive playing experience and a wide selection of potentially lucrative features.
The stacked Wild symbol is an icon punters will want to see on the reels as often as possible, as it has the power to substitute for all other symbols bar the Scatter, helping players create additional winning combinations.
Thanks to the Game Modifier functionality, players will be able to get an additional stacked Wild. This extra symbol will appear during the Free Spins round, significantly increasing the win potential.
Licensees can choose to manually unlock the modifier for individual players or groups, or they can configure the IMS to unlock this option based on predefined criteria. Using the company’s Engagement 360 tool, licensees will be able to offer modifier campaigns at key points as players progress. This interesting option can even be unlocked through in-game messaging.
The Game Modifier was initially introduced with the Justice League slot, which hit the market in late 2018, and proved to be a hit among players. According to an announcement made by Playtech, Space Digger is the first in a series of slots developed specifically to incorporate this unique feature which represents a marketing tool never before used in the industry.
This ground-breaking option offers a wide range of potential applications, including rewards for VIPs and regular players and boosting their entertainment and engagement levels.
Welcoming a Unique Proposition in the Market
Commenting on the launch of the new game, James Frendo, Director of Casino at Playtech said the company’s core objective was to lead the way on innovation in the gambling industry from both a technological and marketing perspective.
Frendo pointed out Game Modifiers were a unique proposition in the current market, offering their licensees an easy and effective way to differentiate the offering and boost player engagement.
He added that several of their customers had already run very successful Game Modifiers campaigns with Justice League, and stated Playtech were confident they would welcome the chance to do so again using the firm’s first game purpose-built for this feature, with more to come later this year.
Space Digger will use an improve return to player (RTP), which will allow licensees to offer their customers a truly compelling proposition, while players will be delighted as they’ll get something extra.
Space Digger is already available online and can be played at any of Playtech-powered online casinos.
The launch of the new game comes shortly after the company inked a new deal with GVC that will see it expand its presence to new markets.
Playtech is one of the leading gaming companies on the market, whose offering includes casino, live casino, sports betting, virtual sports, bingo and poker.
