Supplier’s second slot marks innovative addition to rapidly expanding content portfolio

 

Mobile-first games developer OneTouch has released its latest blockbuster slot game, the Japanese-themed Sumo Showdown.

The 4×4 grid game, featuring 10 payways, is the second slot from the innovative provider and follows the success of its debut game Juicy 7 unveiled in November this year.

Sumo Showdown centres on the ancient Japanese sport of Sumo wrestling with gargantuan warriors filling the reels and helping players to massive wins. Alongside the giants of the ring, the reels are packed with traditional oriental symbols including bonsai trees and a panoramic view of Mount Fuji.

The game’s exciting bonus feature includes respins when the Sumo symbol lands on both the first and fourth reels. These symbols act as scatters and do not have to be part of a payline to unlock winning spins. Random sticky wilds, in the form of a gyōji, or Sumo referee, can also replace symbols on the reels.

Ollie Castleman, Head of Marketing, OneTouch, said: “Sumo Showdown is the second slot game in our rapidly expanding portfolio of games content and its elegant design and fun gameplay is sure to be a massive hit with players across a number of key markets.

“Featuring easy to understand payways and a straightforward bonus feature, the user-friendly game will appeal to casual players and experienced gamers alike, and we’re delighted to add this slot to our burgeoning portfolio.

OneTouch’s collection of games also boasts Juicy 7, as well as classic casino table games Baccarat, Blackjack, Hold’em Poker, Russian Poker and Sic Bo, featuring cutting-edge sounds and graphics, while retaining the classic games’ authentic features.

RubyPlay’s Quest of Gods In Tight Final of Slot Championship
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

For the first time in their young history RubyPlay, entered their slot “Quest of Gods”, into the £100,000 Slots Championship at Lottoland. Being a newcomer they hoped for a good showing in its Quarter Final encounter against the legendary “Gonzo’s Quest” but it surpassed expectations by not only winning, but winning by a strong margin of 83% to 17%.

Next up in the Semi Final – an even tougher prospect – up against 2019 Champion, “Mustang Gold”. In a much tighter encounter, “Quest of Gods” again caused an upset by winning by 55% to 45% – setting up a final against “Holmes and the Stolen Stones”.

By this stage everyone was expecting a close run in the Final round – and it didn’t disappoint! “Quest of Gods” took an early lead on day one against Holmes and the Stolen Stones, but over the week, the game clawed back to eventually pip the RubyPlay game to the win by 51% to 49%.

Ittai Zur, Chief Operating Officer at RubyPlay said “As a new player in the slots market it was a great honour taking part in the Slots Championship with Lottoland. We also knew it would give us a good idea of how our games compare in terms of popularity with some of the biggest slot developers, competition that we have a lot of respect for.

We are delighted with how “Quest of Gods” resonated with Lottoland players, and to only just miss out on being the Lottoland Slots Champions of 2020 was incredible.”

Anthony Morris, VP Gaming & Sports at Lottoland had this to say “We knew that Quest of Gods was popular with our players at Lottoland, but to be honest we didn’t think it would do as well as it did against some smash hit content from other major providers. We look forward to more great games from the team at RubyPlay over the coming months and years”.
