HungryBear Gaming, a pioneering UK iGaming content supplier, has signed a global agreement with Light & Wonder, Inc. The new deal will see it distribute the first multiplayer Slot Masters title to the provider’s entire network of operators worldwide.
Slot Masters is a three-way, free-to-play, head-to-head slot game where players can influence the outcome of their opponents’ scores by strategically using a variety of attack and defense weapons. Light & Wonder, a global leader in cross-platform entertainment and games, has made the free-to-play game available to its market-leading OPENGAMING platform, making it accessible to hundreds of global operators.
Since launching the free-to-play tournaments earlier in the year, the game has been a big hit with multiple tier-one operators. It is currently live with major brands such as Gamesys/Bally brand Virgin, Rainbow Riches Casino and Monopoly Casino. Jackpot Joy, Double Bubble and Megaways, and Entain brands Foxy Bingo Ladbrokes.
Data has been well received, with high numbers of players returning to the game each day. There has also been a sharp rise in session times, an increase in player days and a significant rise in session hours. This provides partner brands with unique opportunities for acquisition and retention.
In the coming weeks and months, the game will be available across many other European and global operators. Several brands will launch bespoke TV and online campaigns. Slot Masters will also be featured on its homepage tab. This will allow players to quickly identify the game and play it.
HungryBear Gaming is currently in the final stages of building the first real-money version of Slot Masters. They will announce a release date prior to the end of this year.
