HungryBear Gaming Limited has announced it’s partnered with gambling operator Entain to launch its free-to-play casino game, SlotMasters.
The UK and Canadian-based studio are creators of the industry’s first-ever multiplayer slot tournament, and the firm has this week signed an agreement to launch the game with Entain and operator’s casino brands.
SlotMasters is a head-to-head video slot that supports up to three players, where users can impact the outcome of their opponent’s score via weapons and defensive tools during gameplay.
The slot has launched with Entain’s Foxy Bingo brand, and the studio has confirmed that it’ll develop customised versions of the game for casinos that include the site’s branding.
HungryBear Gaming has also confirmed that the game will “evolve” over time with seasonal updates that add new weapons, characters, and abilities, giving players reasons to return.
Justin Chamberlin, the Founder and CEO of HungryBear Gaming Limited, said in a statement via EuropeanGaming: “SlotMasters has been a passion project for some time and to see it go live with Entain and some of the industry’s biggest global brands is a dream come true for the team and I who have worked so hard to get to this stage.
“Since launch we’ve been running multiple daily tournaments and players are coming back every day in their droves to play SlotMasters, the most exciting and innovative gaming entertainment concept out there.”
He added: “We are pioneering a completely new category and major brands are now seeing the benefits of a completely original, fun, interactive game that attracts large volumes of players and keeps them coming back multiple times a day, every day, increasing session times and brand loyalty and, above all, providing them with a unique experience they can’t play anywhere else.”
Craig Perry, the Head of Gaming Commercial and Product at Entain, commented: “Ever since we first saw a demo of SlotMasters, we knew it would add a new and unique dimension to our offering, providing our players with an instantly accessible and highly entertaining product that is providing to be a huge hit with our customers.”
