Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Pragmatic Play, a leading content provider to the gaming industry, continues to embrace Scandinavian adventures with the announcement of its new slot title, Book of Vikings™.

Featuring comic book-style visuals and a classical instrumental soundtrack, the highly volatile slot is riddled with symbols of Norse mythology, and includes a mystery Free Spins feature where landing a special expanding symbol will boost chances of big wins.

There is also a Scatter symbol that takes the shape of a Magic Book, which only needs to appear three times in a payline to trigger the Free Spins feature.

Here, a regular symbol is randomly selected to become the expanding Mystery Symbol before the player is allowed to use their 10 free spins, and every time it appears, the Mystery symbol will expand to fill the entire reel.

A huge number of winning combinations can be created with these expanding Mystery symbols, and players who wish to bypass the base game for the Free Spins feature can do so with the Bonus Buy element where available.

Book of Vikings is the latest title to join Pragmatic Play’s extensive slot collection, following in the footsteps of recent hits Empty the Bank™, 5 Lions Megaways™ and Lucky Lightning, which reside amongst 200+ HTML5 titles in the provider’s award-winning games portfolio.

Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Our previous Norse-themed release was dominated by an all-female warrior cast, but this time we see Viking royalty grace the helm of the ship.

Book of Vikingsutilizes a gorgeous aesthetic and combines it with simplified gameplay to provide a winning experience for players of all ages and demographics.”

Pragmatic Play currently produces up to five new slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.

Opera GX [NASDAQ: OPRA], the world’s first web browser built specifically for gamers, today announced a challenge for the best in-browser offline game: the Opera GX Game Jam 2021.

‘When the internet is out, some browsers get on our nerves with dinosaurs or surfing games which only reminds gamers that without the internet we’re back to the stone age and can’t surf the web. We created the Opera GX Game Jam to call on all artists and creative gamers to make the offline experience fun,’ said Maciej Kocemba, Product Director of Opera GX.

The Opera GX Game Jam competition will give one winner the unique opportunity for their game to be played by millions in the Opera GX offline page. The top three artists will also win cash prizes of $3k, $7k and $10K.

The best game will receive expert development support from the GameMaker team, before being unleashed within the Opera GX desktop browser. Once completed, it will also be promoted to Opera GX’s millions of users through the browser’s GX Corner and across the social accounts of Opera GX, GameMaker Studio 2 and Game Jolt.

The Opera GX Game Jam will be open for submissions starting on the 29th of July, when the theme for the event will be revealed.

The expert jury includes:

  • Maciej Kocemba (Opera GX Product Director)

  • Russell Kay (GameMaker Studio 2 CTO)

  • Yaprak DeCarmine (Game Jolt co-founder and CEO)

  • GameMaker game creators:

    • Johan Vinet (Canari Games – LUNARK),

    • David Galindo (AKA chubigans – Cook, Serve Delicious!)
