Max Quest: Wrath of Ra Shortlisted for Exclusive Spinnovator of the Year Award
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

After redefining RNG gaming in late 2018, the revolutionary Max Quest: Wrath of Ra, from Betsoft Gaming, has been shortlisted for the exclusive Spinnovator of the Year award.

Alongside 11 other games, Max Quest: Wrath of Ra (hereafter “Max Quest”) has been recognised as embodying the kind of “unique ideas” and “innovative concepts” that the organisers of the upcoming Spinnovation Summit believe will be essential for slots and skill-based games to appeal to the next generation of players.

Taking place on 30th April at a luxurious venue in Prague, Czech Republic, the Spinnovation Summit is dedicated to highlighting true innovation in iGaming.  The Summit will feature high-profile keynote speakers from key market segments, and a showcase of the industry’s most innovative games from the last calendar year.  The spotlight will be on the Spinnovator of the Year awards – the finalists for which have been selected by an expert panel to reflect the most inventive game mechanics, themes, and ideas the industry had to offer in 2018.  An overall winner will be named at the Summit by the judging panel.

A truly game-changing experience, Max Quest reinvents the traditional RNG slot as an interactive, all-action shooting and looting adventure.  Set in a sunken tomb beneath the sands of Egypt, the game replaces reels and symbols with maze-like levels, special weapons, and supernatural enemies.  Blending the best of social and home console gaming, Max Quest places players in parties of up to six and encourages a unique mix of cooperation and competition; players customise their avatars, earn XP (experience points) as they progress, secure treasure for their personal showcases, embark on quests and even participate in seasonal leaderboards for cash prizes.

“Max Quest is a milestone game – both for Betsoft and for the iGaming industry as a whole, so we are thrilled that it’s earning such high-profile recognition” explains Betsoft’s Marketing Director, Annamaria Anastasi.  “With the first entry in what may become a multi-game series, we were able to build a truly unique iGaming experience, and to create a true crossover game to attract entirely new demographics that have not been converted by traditional slots.  The judging panel believe that Max Quest demonstrates real innovation in its presentation, player interface, and game mechanics, so we’re honoured to have been recognized for nomination.”
