he first titles available from Reel Sports are Reel Football and Racing Riches and will be launched in time for the 11th European iGaming Congress and Expo on October 16-18 by existing partners of the Passoker game, including William Hill, BetVictor and JenningsBet. Reel Football is a unique video slot game that uses classic archive content from the FA Cup, as licensed by the Football Association, within all areas of the game.
Aspects of the timeless footage are utilised in the bonus feature, where players predict the outcome of an incident, such as whether a penalty will be scored or missed, before seeing the action unfold. Reel Football features commentary and audio from Sky Sports’ Martin Tyler and ex-England, Nottingham Forest, Arsenal and Manchester United footballer Viv Anderson.
Fast-paced Racing Riches is an incident-based roulette-style game, which plays alongside live as well as classic sports events. Wagering opportunities are split into short segments lasting between two and five minutes, which pay out fixed odds and every game contains potential jackpots which reward in multiples of more than 10,000 times stakes.
Fruit icons are allocated to six lanes before they advance closer towards the Racing Riches finishing line on the reoccurrence of randomly assigned incidents, such as a free kick or goal in football.
Participants place chips on the board to predict the finishing position of the fruits. Play ends when the first piece of fruit crosses the finishing line, but rewards are paid out on all squares with fruit remaining, according to chip values, entitling players to profit from multiple winning positions at any one time.
“Launching our Reel Sports division is the culmination of a huge amount of time, effort and investment behind the scenes over the past 12 months,” said Stuart Carr, managing director of Reel Sports and Passoker. “Our success with Passoker shows that our formula of incident-based games is one that is popular and works very well. Passoker continues to exist and Reel Sports uses the established game engine to extend our offering. We are supplementing Passoker through the evolution of the initial concept and a series of games that appeal to a different audience and player type,” he added.
