Developer Playtech has launched its brand-new live video slot Safari Riches Live.
The exciting new live casino game was developed exclusively for 888 Casino and launched earlier this week, marking an important milestone for both the operator and Playtech as it’s the first time a slot developed by 888 has been transformed into a live casino game.
The game is a live-hosted version of 888’s iconic slot Safari Riches, and it includes numerous special features like Stacked Wilds, Free Spins, and Big Icons. The game is hosted by Playtech presenters from its state-of-the-art studio in Riga, offering you an immersive and social experience.
Safari Riches Live also includes a progressive Daily Jackpot, the first of its kind to launch on a Playtech Live Casino game. The jackpot can be triggered and won by a single spin, increasing excitement and engagement.
In a statement shared on the Playtech website, Kevin Kilminster, the Head of Live Casino Innovation at Playtech, said of the game: “We are thrilled to collaborate with 888 Casino to create this bespoke live casino slot game, Safari Riches Live.
“It is a great honour that 888 Casino has chosen Playtech to develop this game and trusted the Playtech Live team with one of their best-performing gaming brands. At Playtech Live, we are seeing an increased demand from operators to create new and engaging content for their customers and having the opportunity to design a live casino slot game based on one of 888 Casino’s most successful proprietary slot games made perfect sense to us!”
Kilminster added: “The Playtech Live team have developed tailor-made features to support the launch of Safari Riches Live and we are confident that it will be just as popular with 888 Casino’s customers as the original Safari Riches slot game.”
Talya Benyamini, the VP of B2C Casino at 888, said: “We are delighted with the new and exclusive Safari Riches Live casino slot game that we have developed jointly with the Playtech Live team.
“Packed with rich content and exciting features, including our Daily Jackpot, Safari Riches Live builds on the popularity and strength of the Safari Riches brand and extends it to fans of Live Casino.”
She added: “This launch will expand our existing portfolio of exciting games and formats, which is a crucial part of our product leadership and content strategy. We can’t wait to introduce the game to players in the coming weeks and continue to work with Playtech in the future.”
