iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play has announced the launch of "a new adventure in Sherwood Forest" in its latest release, called Fire Archer.
Money pouches, beer and feathered hats make up the symbols of this 5×5 release, which is home to 25 paylines. Players will need to create matching combinations of these symbols to be awarded a win.
Super wilds are also present on the reels. Influenced by the overall aesthetics of the slot and depicted as a target, these will always be hit by the sharpshooting protagonist and awards a line of wilds in one of eight different directions. These wilds substitute all other symbols except the free spin-awarding scatter symbols and aid players in unlocking wins.
Three scatters award five free spins where the Super wild is enhanced to a roaming and upgradable super wild. Present throughout the bonus round and awarding wild lines each spin, the target requires two scatters to upgrade. This unlocks a retrigger of up to three additional spins and an extra direction for the wilds to be created across.
This new slot release follows recent titles like Monster Superlanche, Fish Eye, and Mammoth Gold Megaways, which reside amongst a collection of over 300 titles in Pragmatic Play’s games portfolio.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Fire Archer provides an immersive world for players where upgrading features culminate in big win potential and a crescendo of excitement and wild wins in the free spins round.”
“Our talented team of designers, artists and composers have created a slot where the excitement of play is encapsulated perfectly through the symbols on screen, the captivating sound of arrows firing and our main protagonist being animated to draw and fire his bow. This attention to detail will astound players and help in creating a fully realised world for them to enjoy,” she added.
In addition to launching new games, the provider eyes global expansion. Earlier this week, the company announced a new deal with operator Jacare.bet, further extending its growing presence in the Brazilian market. Following on from a string of recent deals in the jurisdiction, the partnership with Jacare.bet grants its players access to the provider’s slots, live casino and virtual sports products, featuring a variety of games that Pragmatic Plays says are proven to boost revenue.
