London, 24 October 2018 – Playtech today announces the launch of a series of seasonal products for Halloween, including new slot game Pumpkin Bonanza and a spooky take on its gameshow-style Spin a Win Live Casino game.
Previous Halloween-themed games have proved a major hit for Playtech, with the technology provider launching a dedicated Halloween Live Roulette room in 2017 following the success of Christmas-themed tables. This year’s seasonal offering is the company’s most extensive yet, with Pumpkin Bonanza and Spin a Win Halloween being joined by Halloween Trivia – the latest variant on the new Trivia Show Live quiz segment.
In Pumpkin Bonanza, players have two big chances to boost their winnings, with both respins and extra wilds available. Landing two matching payline symbols from left to right or vice versa turns all potential winning symbols to Pumpkin Wilds on reel three, triggering a Bonanza Spin to unlock major win potential. Glowing Jack O’Lantern graphics coupled with a sinister soundtrack add to the eerie atmosphere.
For Live Roulette fans, Spin a Win Halloween combines the atmosphere of a specially designed setting with the excitement of Spin a Win’s multipliers and side bet options. With the dealers decked out as in suitably spooky garb, players will be hoping for a touch of magic to take them through to the special Halloween trivia game. When the wheel stops on a Free Spins Trivia segment, winning players have the chance to outsmart the sorcerers in charge of the game and win Free Spins for Pumpkin Bonanza. Thanks to the power of Playtech’s Engagement Centre, operators can credit Free Spins directly to players via a single account.
James Frendo, Casino Director at Playtech, said: ‘After the success of our Halloween Fortune slot and our first Halloween-themed Live room, we wanted to deliver an even more compelling seasonal offering for our operators this year. The Viking Studio team has done a fantastic job on Pumpkin Bonanza, with eye-catching graphics and an atmospheric soundtrack, and we’re confident it can make just as big an impact as Halloween Fortune.
‘Spin a Win Halloween takes two of our most popular new Live products and combines them into something truly innovative. The link between Halloween Trivia and Pumpkin Bonanza also offers an excellent cross-sell opportunity, with clear added value for players too’.
Spin a Win Halloween is available from 24 October to 7 November, with a special one-off Halloween Trivia game for all players on 31 October. Pumpkin Bonanza is available now.
