ach progressive jackpot is tied to an evening football match with odds of winning the progressive jackpot increasing as the match progresses. Towards the end of each match, the Euro jackpot turns 'hot' with payout guaranteed by the end of the game.
Slots volume on Red Tiger Gaming's popular Lucky Wizard and Winter Wonders slots titles on Betfair's Arcade tab have seen a huge surge in play during the Euros matches. The jackpots compliment the existing progressive jackpot innovations on Red Tiger's exclusive 'Macau' tab on Betfair, also soon to be rolled out on the Paddy Power brand.
Commenting on the release, Giles Potter, Commercial Director at Red Tiger Gaming, said, "We're delighted to have worked with Betfair to deliver this innovative jackpot feature for the Euro 2016 tournament and beyond. We knew from the success of our ceiling jackpots on Betfair's Macau tab (guaranteed payout before the progressive jackpot reaches its target) how the building excitement of an imminent payout always drives slots play; with the Euro 2016 jackpots we have taken the format a step further. These new deadline jackpots are just the latest in our ever growing stable of profit-boosting retention and engagement tools available to our clients."
Mike Phelan, Head of eGaming Marketing at Paddy Power Betfair added: “From the outset we've been really impressed with Red Tiger's innovative approach to creating slots that amass huge player appeal. We are especially pleased with these new jackpots as they developed them at very short notice and they've had a huge impact on the volume through the Red Tiger games at a time when punters are usually more focused on watching the match. We are proud to be first to market with another unique gaming innovation from Red Tiger and look forward to the forthcoming release of their powerful new Smart Spins bonusing application."
