Orb of Osiris launches exclusively with Entain brands including PartyCasino and Foxy Games before going network wide on the 15th February

Live 5, the partner of choice slot developer who are behind some of this year’s most popular titles, is taking players into the deep dark depths of an ancient Egyptian tomb in search of treasures and big wins in its latest blockbuster release, Orb of Osiris.

The game, which launches exclusively with Entain, the leading global sports-betting and gaming group formerly called GVC Holdings, from 14th December before going network wide on 15th February 2021, sees players faced with three layers of symbols which they must clear through in order to reach the Orb and the treasures within.

When a win occurs, the symbols involved in the win are removed and new symbols are unveiled underneath. Wilds are available on levels one and two while level three is where the Bonus symbols are found and where the bonus games can be triggered.

This includes Progressive Multiplier Free Spins which are triggered when four Bonus symbols are revealed anywhere on the reels, with 10 Free Spins awarded plus an additional spin for each extra Bonus symbol that appears.

Free spins consist of infinite layers and a progressive multiplier. If players are able to reach level three within Free Spins, the Free Spins bonus is retriggered for additional 1-3 spins and once processed another symbol will reveal below the bonus symbol. The Progressive Multiplier increases by 1 before a win is paid and sees each win increase the multiplier x1 for some truly amazing wins.

If players become stuck when trying to clear the levels, then there is a chance the Orb Modifier will kick in and remove up to eight lines from the current layer to reveal the symbols below.

Orb of Osiris sits at the high end of the volatility scale and has a return to player of 94.47%. It is certified for launch in the UK, Spain, Sweden, Denmark and Malta, as well as in Canada with Loto Quebec and the British Colombia Lottery Corp.

Lloyd Butler, CEO of Live 5, said: “The team have done an incredible job with Orb of Osiris and in particular with the level system that makes players feel like they are venturing deeper and deeper into the tomb with every spin.

“The innovative math and mechanics have been combined with stunning visuals, atmospheric sound and a great range of features that ensure players have the chance to win big with every spin.

“This is one of our most complex and compelling games to date and we are delighted to see it launch exclusively with our friends at Entain before going network wide in February. We really do believe it has the potential to be one of our most successful games to date.”

Alex Ratcliffe, Head of Slots at Entain, said: “We are excited to be able to offer our customers Orb of Osiris for an exclusive period. This is the second title in our Omni series with Live 5 and the way the team have married rich graphics with engaging game mechanics makes this an attractive prospect.

“At Entain everything we aim to do is, ‘For the good of entertainment’ and we expect Orb of Osiris to both entertain and excite our players.”

Exclusive interview: Lucksome director Bryan Upton

Lucksome, the new games studio powered by Blueprint Gaming, has launched its first ever slot with the release of Divine Links. In this exclusive interview with European Gaming, Lucksome director Bryan Upton discusses the studio’s ambitions to deliver games that hand further control over to the player, as well as it plans over the coming months

Tell us more about Lucksome, how do you intend to differentiate yourselves?

Bryan Upton (BU): We intend to provide players with better game information, communicating clearly on how our games will feel to play and what they can expect from each Lucksome title. This gives the end user a more informed choice about our games. With Divine Links, the first release from Lucksome, players will find that there are options on how they want to play, which enables them to drive the action across the gameplay.

In addition, we’re localising games in key markets to provide more attuned gaming experiences, with translated game names for more familiarity for those players. Clean graphics, along with strong and bold presentation, are key characteristics of our slots for players to enjoy without feeling overwhelmed.

The first release includes new features Lux Reels™ and Lucksome Locks™. What was the inspiration behind these new concepts and how do they work? Will they feature in future releases?

BU: Lux Reels™ is a tweak on a popular mechanic, where we’ve added those nice and unique Money Scatter Wilds and that exciting feeling of landing either x2 Cash Upgrades, Extra Money Scatters or Free Spins Scatters. We wanted that never ending feeling from linking features, having them launching from each other for ultimate excitement. We’ll keep iterating on mechanics like these and taking them forward, ensuring players are receiving something new and interesting with each game.

Lucksome Locks™, if liked by players, will feature in most of our upcoming games. We wanted to introduce a cheaper cost alternative to a feature buy where there is still some excitement about triggering a hero feature or the bonus. Lucksome Locks™ absolutely achieves that, as there’s still some suspense as to whether the bonus will be activated or not.

Are there any particular markets you are targeting with Divine Links and future Lucksome games?

BU: The ambition of Lucksome is target global markets with our content, but some of our games will be aimed at specific markets or market clusters. We see differing tastes from Eastern to Western and Northern to Southern European countries, as well as further flung countries. You can be sure to expect games coming from us looking at clusters of countries with commonalities.

For a new games studio, how important is the support of Blueprint Gaming in elevating the reach of your content?

BU: It’s huge for us. Blueprint Gaming and the team have done an absolutely cracking job with their distribution, the technology and capabilities of the games development system. Small studios need strong distribution and support in order to achieve success. Blueprint has all of this with its ever growing network of operators.

They’ve been great people and partners to work with, as well as being incredibly supportive and understanding about the need for studios to have their own brand, identity and approach to game design. They’ve given us a playground to innovate within, so expect some great things to come!

What kinds of new games and features can we expect from Lucksome for the rest of the year?

BU: We only kicked off in September 2020 as a studio, so we’re just getting our first games under our belt and are really picking up steam and have come a very long way already.

Expect the quality within our games to increase, as well as the functionality and features to more innovative. We’re working on something very special at the moment. I can’t really say too much but with the support and collaboration of the Blueprint team, we’ll be announcing something truly unique, innovative and big this year.

New multi-year partnership between 32Red and Rangers marks the longest running in British football
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Kindred’s brand 32Red has today announced a multi-year extension of its partnership with Scottish Professional Football League, SPFL, Champions Rangers. The extension means that the partnership will be one of the longest running in British football. As part of the partnership 32Red also commits to continue supporting Team talk – a men’s mental health initiative.

Kindred Group, through its 32Red brand, has extended its support of SPFL Champions Rangers, a partnership that dates back to 2014. The new multi-year partnership is one of the longest running partnerships in British football. An important part of the partnership is the continuation of Team Talk, a men’s mental health initiative supported by 32Red.

Over the past years, Kindred Group’s UK brands have focused on an ambitious project to change the sponsorship model in sport, using the power of sport in general and football in particular, to achieve a positive impact on society. Team Talk is an example of an appreciated initiative that contributes to the community by using the local club and, from time to time, players and managers, as a mechanism to engage with men about their mental well-being.

“Rangers and 32Red have been on a long journey together and I am delighted that our winning partnership is continuing. I was particularly heartened to hear that the vital Team Talk initiative will be continuing as part of the new agreement. I recently took part in a really positive session and it is abundantly clear to me how much of a support network Team Talk provides to our fans. Today’s announcement is really positive news for everyone connected to the club”, says Rangers Manager Steven Gerrard. Gerrard joined a Team Talk session via video conference and was joined by 25 regular members, who explained how the meetings through Team Talks had helped then during the pandemic.

“We are thrilled to be continuing our longstanding partnership with SPFL Champions Rangers – it’s been quite a journey over the last decade and we’re proud to have played our part in that. It is a hugely exciting time to be involved with the club, as this current season has shown already. More widely, we remain committed to reinventing the sports sponsorship model, so that it benefits the wider community. That is why, as part of this extended agreement with the club we will be renewing our support for the vital men’s mental health initiative, Team Talk”, concludes Neil Banbury, UK General Manager, Kindred Group.
