Many around the world will recognise detective extraordinaire, Sherlock Holmes, and his trusty sidekick Watson, however, Moriarty Megaways™ focuses on Sherlock’s arch nemesis and criminal mastermind, Professor James Moriarty.

Unlock Watson for a guaranteed mystery symbol for a chance to win big and unlock the mighty Sherlock Holmes for a guaranteed 117,649 Max Megaways™ outcome for incredible win potential.

Voice actors have also been used to add an extra layer of excitement to the game, with players becoming willing participants in one of the most engaging crime stories ever written, while also staying true to the thrilling Twisted Tales narrative.

Global gaming powerhouse William Hill went live with Moriarty Megaways™ during a 10-day exclusivity period in the first week of May.

In line with its mantra of ‘Serious Fun’ and values of curiosity, passion and respect which are crucial to delivering amazing experiences, iSoftBet hosted a Moriarty themed virtual murder-mystery event for customers, prospective clients and the media yesterday. ‘Team Holmes’, composed of senior industry professionals from operators Betsson, LeoVegas and PokerStars and industry media CasinoBeats and SlotBeats, won a mystery box each filled with exciting prizes.

Hosted by the dastardly Professor himself, iSoftBet gathered a selection of tier one guests to examine the game in detail and engage in a rapid-fire slot tournament. This was followed by a murder mystery event with guests split into teams to crack one of Holmes’ famous cases, with each person enjoying a game-themed hamper finished off with a ‘Dark & Secret’ cocktail in line with one of iSoftBet’s core values of curiosity.

iSoftBet has released nine Megaways™ titles in just 12 months, from the African adventure hit Majestic Megaways™ through to Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways™, a sequel to its debut Megaways™ title, Aztec Gold Megaways™.

Mark Claxton, Head of Games, iSoftBet, said: “We’ve been waiting for this moment all year and I’m delighted with the results. Moriarty combines more excitement and more features than we’ve ever included in a game, and thrill seeking, big win potential players will love what we’ve done by combining unique iSoftBet features with the hugely popular Megaways™ mechanic.

“Our Twisted Tales games have proved a massive hit and this game takes in game excitement to new levels with so many ways to win big, plus our launch is perfectly timed with Arthur Conan Doyle’s birthday, the creator of Sherlock Holmes.”

The Metaverse in 2022 and Beyond

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

We launched the first edition of our metaverse report in July 2021.
Then, the metaverse, NFTs, and blockchain gaming transitioned from being largely unknown concepts to ubiquitous terms on the lips of
every major brand or investor. Despite the hype somewhat cooling down in recent months—partly as a result of the global macroeconomic situation—interest in the metaverse as a natural and immersive successor to the 2D internet is still at an all-time high.
The transition from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 will not only impact the modus operandi of (major) brands, but also the way in which consumers live, work, and experience entertainment.
The evolution of simulated, 3D worlds presents a particularly massive opportunity for brands. The transition from diffused physical spaces
and into virtual worlds provides them with a new opportunity to reach a highly condensed mass of users that is more difficult to both
approach and monetize through other forms of advertising. This transition into virtual worlds can only accelerate as the current
generations of digital natives age and as virtual experiences become more authentic. Fast-moving brands like Nike, Louis Vuitton,
Balenciaga, or technology brands like Meta—to name just a few—recognized this shifting of the tide and have already developed
metaverse strategies.
Moreover, while NFTs and blockchain games have experienced a spectacular 2021, a severe drawback in the crypto market along with
fears of a global recession have both led to public interest and coin valuations substantially waning in recent months. As a result, this
correction will likely end most of the (low effort) endeavors in these areas. Nevertheless, we remain optimistic about the future and remain
confident that the top projects will succeed.
Given how fast-moving this space still is, an elemental understanding of the building blocks and trends that surround it is essential.
Therefore, in this report, we identify and discuss the top 10 prevailing trends in the metaverse, blockchain gaming, and NFT space.
Understanding these trends (and what drives them) will help companies endemic to gaming, consumer brands, and consumers alike
to navigate the murky waters of the metaverse, along with its connection to NFTs and blockchain games. We hope you find this
report insightful and useful for shaping your strategy in 2022 and beyond.
