Syndicate slot to follow industry’s first 3D/VR title

 

Evoplay Entertainment, the innovative game development studio, is to showcase its new slot title at SiGMA 2018 later this month.

The game, Syndicate, is a thrilling journey into east coast America’s unsavoury underworld, where the proceeds of crime give players the chance of landing 1024 possible winning combinations.

It comes hot on the heels of the developer’s highly-acclaimed Necromancer title, which has been nominated for a host of awards, including Best Gaming Innovation at December’s SBC Awards in London.

Both games will be on display on Evoplay Entertainment’s stand B211 as the company makes its SiGMA debut, with Chief Business Officer Kate Romanenko and her team on hand to demonstrate their unique features.

Kate said: “Our mission with every game is to revolutionise the iGaming user experience through innovative gameplay and we’ve designed Syndicate to offer features never seen before in the industry.

“SiGMA is one of the hottest events on the industry’s calendar, and we’re absolutely delighted to be unveiling it there alongside our other games, which will give operators fresh new content and a point of differentiation from their competitors.”

Each of the winning combinations in Syndicate, which boasts a hip-hop soundtrack, triggers a re-spin that retains the same symbols on the reels which then become sticky to trigger yet more re-spins.

The title joins a 50-strong portfolio of slots, table, and instant games produced at the Malta-based company’s development studios in the Ukraine. Licenced in Curacao, with additional licenses In Malta and the UK on their way, it has established a network of partnerships throughout Asia, the CIS, and Europe.
