Developer’s latest slot is a reimagination of the timeless classic and promises fun, adventure and plenty of big win potential

Fantasma Games, the developer of slots the go beyond gambling, has launched its latest blockbuster hit, Alice in Adventureland, exclusively with tier one online casino operator, Paddy Power.

Alice in Adventureland is Fantasma’s take on the timeless classic and sees players venture down the rabbit hole in search of fun, Free Spins and potential Big Wins in what is one of the most visually striking slots to leave the developer’s production line.

Fantasma’s team has gone all out by combining bold and bright colours with symbols and characters from the famous fairy tale. This includes Alice, the white rabbit and the ticking pocket watch. The gameplay promises to be just as crazy.

In the base game, any Rocketkat symbol that bounces in on more than one reel awards a 50/50 chance of turning any symbol Wild. More than one Rocketkat symbol can land and with this feature it is the case of the more the merrier – additional Wilds can upgrade each Wild up to a x9 Multiplier.

In the Adventure Free Spins, players must keep their eyes peeled for the Ultra Bomb which provides explosive action by awarding up to eight additional Wilds that are then activated by a supercharged Rocketkat that blasts across the reels.

Players will also want to collect additional Scatter symbols during the Free Spins. If 15 Scatters appear, the bonus will end with a final Super Spin where Ultra Bombs and Rocketkats land on the reels, guaranteeing a sequence of unpredictable but highly explosive events.

Alice in Adventureland will be available exclusively with Paddy Power for three months before launching to operators in the wider market via Relax Gaming and its Silver Bullet platform.

Fredrik JohanssonCommercial Director and Founder at Fantasma Games, said: “Paddy Power is one of the largest operators in the UK and they are extremely selective with the games they choose to promote. Many other operators will highlight around 30 games a week, however Paddy Power chooses only a handful of games that will receive maximum attention. We are extremely proud that they have hand-picked Alice in Adventureland to promote and this is clear proof that we make games that stand up to the competition.”

Leading distributor for emerging markets secures respected marketing head to continue expansion of its brand and global footprint

QTech Games, the number-one games distributor across Asia and all emerging markets, has appointed Martin Trang to the full-time position of Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).

Trang possesses a wealth of international experience within marketing and sales, product management and business development, having served with success across similar roles at respected event organisers (CMO at M&SE), front-end developers (Regional Director for Southeast Asia at Frosmo), FMCG (Country Manager, Norway at British American Tobacco) and Pharmaceuticals (Vice President and Global Brand Manager at Orion Pharma). This eclectic body of work affords Trang unique bird’s-eye view and insight into stewarding the immediate future of the QTech Games brand and its varied digital assets.

Trang’s academic background also speaks to a strong command of business acumen and analytical rigour, having completed marketing and business courses with honours in California, alongside a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in Materials Technology at the Royal Institute of Technology. Trang additionally holds an Executive MBA in Finance from Hanken School of Economics.

More broadly, Trang brings over 20 years’ experience in marketing and sales across varied sectors, including igaming, to bear at QTech Games, bolstering and diversifying its C-Suite’s core competencies. Leveraging deep experience alongside an extensive network of long-standing relationships, Trang is well-versed to lead on commercial and marketing strategies at a time when acceleration in the digital-entertainment sphere is at its pinnacle.

The Board of QTech Games commented: “Following on from Daniel Long’s recent appointment at CCO, we’re thrilled that Martin has agreed to now join us in a permanent, full-time capacity at CMO. It means we can really hit the ground running next year, and refine our commercial pathway and brand strategy ahead of ICE London and numerous other consequential trade shows from Asia to Africa and Eastern Europe to LatAm over the coming 12 months. His background also advances a keen analytical eye, sound commercial judgement and savvy stewardship of our burgeoning QTech Games marketing team.

“Together with Daniel, their array of multifaceted knowledge, coupled to staff leadership and flair for bottom-line accountability, make these guys the perfect partnership to oversee the next phase of our worldwide expansion into new territories. In short, it’s a timely hiring move that helps consolidate and re-ignite the QTech platform’s position in the vanguard of the industry for taking the best online games to market across emerging territories. We’re confident these appointments will assist us in achieving our goals, chiefly powered by clear tactical focus around the customer experience, innovation tech and, of course, our own brand and its resilient values.

“To have a proven performer take the reins in one of the most important domains of discourse for any distributor is a mark of how far we’ve come as a company and indicative of our established status in the market as the number-one distributor for all developing markets.”

Trang added: “I’m delighted to be joining such an established and progressive company full-time. Implementing the correct strategy for its ‘two keystones’ model has been pivotal to QTech Games’ sustained success. Firstly, beyond the great games, fully owning the technology sets QTech Games apart, enabling us to offer a number of flexible features which no competitor can rival. And secondly, outside of Asia, we’ve secured strongholds in all the important “margin” markets, demonstrating organic growth across channel and border. It grants us a unique position and status in the space.

“Ultimately, QTech Games is not a mere Asian aggregator but a true international distributor of digital entertainment that’s continuing to attract clients from all over the world. From LatAm to the CIS-facing countries and even the Indian market, we’re stealing a march on the competition. I’m sure that we can now build on this success and gain even more market traction and brand recognition, as one of the largest providers of digital entertainment on the market.”

Kalamba Games travels to Sin City in third Megaways™ release Phat Cats Megaways™
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Kalamba Games heads to the Vegas strip with a group of feisty felines in its latest Megaways™ release Phat Cats Megaways™.

This high volatility 6-reeled slot is home to a staggering 200,704 winning ways and symbols including a roster of colourful cat characters that must form matching combinations to award a win. Players are aided in the creation of winning lines by Wild symbols which substitute for all other symbols except the bonus, coins, mystery, upgrade and lock symbols.

These game-altering mechanics are triggered by players landing Mystery symbols on the game board. When landed, these nudge down the reels each spin until they leave the game board, with each spin revealing a base game symbol or a coin which awards its value as a bet multiplier. Lock symbols lock the part of the column below the position in which they land and in a new twist on the MegawaysTM mechanic, Upgrade symbols do this plus may increase the height of columns 2-5 by one for the next spin.

At least three bonus scatters are required to gain access to the free spins round where four active rows on reels two and four of mystery symbols are initially awarded. These spins continue infinitely or until all mystery symbols have left the game board. Extra mystery places can be landed and a win multiplier increases by 1x after each successive spin.

With numerous innovative mechanics working concurrently, Kalamba Games continues to develop intuitive gameplay to deliver players highly engaging slots with Phat Cats Megaways™ being the latest addition to its high-quality and diverse portfolio.

Alex Cohen, COO and Co-Founder at Kalamba Games, said: “Providing players with mystery mechanics in Phat Cats Megaways™ allows for each spin to provide unparalleled excitement as players never truly know what the next spin could hold for them.

“Additionally, developing a bonus round with the possibility of infinite free spins and an ever-increasing multiplier boosts the winning potential present within the title. With a huge 20,000x max win up for grabs, we are sure players will be drawn to innovative features, exciting gameplay and vibrant glitz and glamour displayed from this Sin City-inspired title.”
