03 August 2023 Playtech, a global leader in the online gambling industry, has today announced the launch of Jumanji™ The Bonus Level, a new game that brings together the iconic Hollywood movie "Jumanji™" and the Live gaming experience.
Following an extensive 3-year development process, Jumanji™ The Bonus Level aims to redefine Live gaming as the first-ever Live game inspired by a Hollywood blockbuster, marking a key milestone in the gaming industry.
Drawing on the film's narrative, the gameplay will see players embark on a journey through the heart of the jungle, encountering challenges and surprises along the way, such as facing stampedes of wild animals or unlocking the secrets of the enchanted board game.
This game is housed in one of the largest and most complex studios ever built, designed to immerse players in the mythical world of Jumanji™. The studio's attention to detail ensures that the game replicates the authenticity of the original movie, hoping to deliver a 24/7 theme park-like experience.
Edo Haitin, Playtech Live CEO, says, "We are incredibly proud to introduce Jumanji™ The Bonus Level, a revolutionary Live game that combines cutting-edge technology with the cinematic magic of the beloved movie. We thank Sony Pictures for entrusting us to bring such a renowned brand to life, our team has poured their passion and expertise into crafting this exceptional gaming adventure, and we believe it will set new standards in the industry."
The game's launch reaffirms Playtech's position as a leader in delivering innovative and immersive gaming experiences. The popularity of Live continues to grow as players increasingly favour gaming experiences with streaming in real-time, adding a layer of authenticity.
As the online gaming world expands, so does the increasing demand to deliver new, engaging and immersive entertainment experiences for consumers by raising the bar for quality, innovation and dedication to resonate with players worldwide.
