Supplier’s cross-vertical game of the year features industry-first shared jackpot

 

Yggdrasil introduces Dr Fortuno, the industry’s first cross-vertical shared jackpot, giving players more chances to win huge sums on the reels and at the blackjack table.

Both games star the charismatic leader of a travelling freak show who ventures to lands far and wide, inviting players into his mysterious and rewarding world.

The sinister Doctor, together with his troupe of freaks, allows players to enter his realm of dreams and curiosities to experience things beyond the comprehension of imagination.

The marvellous 5×3 slot features nudging wilds and the ‘Wheel of Fortuno’, which gives players a shot at the jackpot and a chance to win additional coins or multiply their winnings.

The Ringmaster also brings his magical flair to the blackjack table. The 5-player RNG multiplayer offers a wonderful new bonus bet and bonus game with incredible rewards including multipliers and a chance to win the daily jackpot which is shared with the slot game of the same name.

Yggdrasil added some extra charm to this shared jackpot with a Customizable Countdown feature. This enables operators to inject more excitement into their games by choosing the starting and ending parameters of their jackpot countdown. This flexibility caters for operators of all sizes, offering engaging and valuable jackpots at the frequency that works for their unique needs.

Jonas Strandman, Senior Product Strategist at Yggdrasil, said: “There is a lot going on in the Dr Fortuno Slot! Nudging wilds, a bonus wheel, free spins AND a jackpot! The bonus wheel happens often enough to keep spiking entertainment levels, while the free spins can dish out huge wins with the right combinations.

“The cross-vertical nature of the game presents our operators with a prime opportunity to introduce their players to new verticals, using a character and game mechanics that they are familiar with.”

“If you ever hear Dr Fortuno, also known as the ‘King of Yellow’, whisper his catchphrase, “By the pricking one of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes!”, roll up, roll up and join his troupe to make fortune smile upon his lucky patrons. You never know, if picked he could bestow you with riches beyond your wildest imagination.”

As with all Yggdrasil slot titles, the Dr Fortuno slot comes complete with the collection of in-game promotional tools, BOOST®.

The first version of the Game Aggregator Platform is scheduled to be published by the end of September, together with a new version of the Quanta Game Wallet for mobiles, that will support gameplay directly from the mobile application. Within this version, at least one game provider with its instant games will be introduced.

“The development of Quanta Game Aggregation is in line with our mission to leverage the gaming industry in the blockchain era,” said Kostas Farris, Acting CEO and Director of Quanta. “As more traditional game providers turn to blockchain for their offerings, Quanta seeks to provide them with an interconnected centralized platform for easy distribution and comes with a large audience. At the same time, new players that do not have access to a local lottery will have the opportunity to choose from a big selection of games on a single trusted and transparent platform as well as dream about what could be.”

Quanta Technology’s vision is to make their in-game token, the Quanta Game Token (“QGT”), the main currency in Quanta’s private blockchain environment and to be the intermediate token that will be used to play hundreds or even thousands of blockchain games. Players may exchange EHT for QGT and vice-versa and Quanta has plans to introduce BTC and FIAT currencies as acceptable payments as well in the near future.

Quanta currently runs a weekly prize draw, the ‘Quanta Prize Draw’, which is regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission and has a range of prizes and a potential jackpot.
