Betsoft Gaming Going for Gold
Annamaria Anastasi, Marketing Director, Betsoft Gaming.
You’ve released a diverse range of styles of slot games of late, what makes Gold Canyon stand out?
Gold Canyon is our standout title for the summer of 2019, both in terms of overall potential and the style of graphics and animation we’ve incorporated into the game. We’ve gathered extensive feedback from our partners and created a significantly volatile game with a maximum win reaching well over more 5,000 times your stake. In addition, we’ve also put a distinct artistic touch to it that transports players to an authentic US frontier setting. It’s an explosive take on traditional 5×3 slots set at the heart of the Wild West and crammed full of treasures, bonus features and dynamite free spins just waiting to be discovered.
We will be showcasing Gold Canyon and several other innovative titles including latest release Spinfinity Man on stand number M-14 at this July’s iGB Live in Amsterdam. Spinfinity Man is an action-packed adventure whose central character uses his superpowers to rid the city of Metropolis of crime while revealing a multitude of potential big wins during his quest to stop Dr.X from taking over the world.
What are its key features and which player types will it appeal to most?
There are stacks of new and exciting features on display within Gold Canyon including dynamite scatters, which give players a host of re-triggering free spins. On top of this there is an awesome cowboy who comes to the rescue of the citizens of Gold Canyon, protecting them from outlaws and filling up the entire reel with a gigantic wild. While all player types will enjoy the action, players who like a little more risk in their games will really enjoy the wild ride that Gold Canyon offers.
Why did you choose this theme for a summer release?
The Wild West is a hot place, filled to the brim with action, treasures and riches. We wanted to create a sense of joy and adventure, and we hadn’t done this type of slot before. The game combines the heat of the summer with the excitement of big wins. This just clicked together and that’s how Gold Canyon came to be. We’re very happy with the theme and the authenticity of this slot.
How would you sum up the first six months of this year from a slot game success point of view? What have been the standout moments?
This year has been non-stop for the business both in terms of games development and games releases, with the company launching a myriad of new titles including Faerie Spells – a unique take on traditional fairy tales; Carnaval Forever – featuring our signature buy-in mechanic that gives players instant access to free spins at any time; and the smash-hit Spinfinity Man – with potential wins of up to 5,000 times a players stake.
Some of our new games enable players to buy and head straight into our feature rounds – a growing trend across new slots, some other releases have been geared towards more traditional features for fans of classic slot mechanics, while others are far more volatile with a higher potential for huge wins, such as Spinfinity Man and Gold Canyon.
So far this year, our blockbuster release has been Spinfinity Man, our cluster pays game with superhero features and an electrifying bonus round. It has been and continues to be a huge hit with players and we’re looking for more feedback to keep improving and refining our product portfolio.
What content can we expect to see from Betsoft for the remainder of 2019?
We have some fantastic products for all player types lined up for the rest of 2019 and beyond. We’re introducing several exciting new features including a new way to experience slots with a unique reel mechanic, plus some very entertaining jackpots that can deliver huge wins to anyone playing our games. With a new and fun slot game packed with engaging and highly innovative features and bonus rounds every month, our customers and their players are never short of the best content around!
