Real-money casino slot based on classic video arcade game joins iGaming software provider’s suite of Atari®-branded titles
17th October 2016 – Pariplay Ltd., a gaming technology company serving iGaming operators, land-based casinos and iLotteries, has announced the launch of its Atari Star Raiders® online casino slot. The real-money title, based on the original 1979 Atari® video arcade combat simulator game, is the newest release in the company’s ongoing strategic partnership with Atari, Inc.®, the international computer and video game entertainment corporation.
In 2014, Pariplay entered into an agreement with Atari, Inc. to develop a series of real-money online gaming titles. The launch of the Atari Star Raiders® slot is just the latest Atari-branded® title Pariplay’s in-house development studio has released in 2016. Other releases this year include the Atari Black Widow® slot and the Atari Asteroids® instant-win game.
The Star Raiders® slot features all of the Zylon fleet action from the original Atari Star Raiders® game re-packaged into an exciting 20-line slot format. Certified by the gambling regulators of the UK, the Isle of Man, and Malta, the real-money title boasts five reels and 20 lines, 243 ‘ways to win’ free-spin bonus rounds, wild symbols and a sizable jackpot.
In addition to a return-to-player (RTP) value of 94.6%, players will also benefit from Atari Star Raiders®’s customisable bet values as well as the game’s customisable auto-play rounds of play. Catering to international players, the title is available in multiple languages, including Chinese, German, Polish, Swedish, Portuguese, Czech, Slovak and Hungarian as well as English.
Like all of Pariplay’s Atari® titles, the Star Raiders® slot has been developed in HTML5, allowing gameplay on players’ tablets and smartphones as well as desktop computers, with specific controls for each device. The slot is also compatible with all browsers, facilitating players’ enjoyment of the title’s cutting-edge graphics and fast-paced gameplay.
“Our Atari®-branded titles have received a strong reception from iGaming operators and players in multiple global markets, and we’re confident that our Atari Star Raiders® slot will have an equally strong impact,” said Adrian Bailey, General Manager at Pariplay Ltd. “Our studio are currently in the final stages of development for a number of other Atari® real-money titles and these will be released later in Q4 2016 and into 2017.”
Fred Chesnais, CEO of Atari, Inc., said, “This is a great game, bringing a lot of fun and good memories from the past.” He added, “The release of the Atari® Star Raiders online slot and our ongoing partnership with industry leader Pariplay will continue to expand the Atari® brand in the real-money online gambling space, which is a critical part of our strategy.”
