Beginning with Space Hunter, the Shoot for Cash series takes retro arcade-style gameplay and brings it to the world of Casino play, adding a new spin to a classic format. It is available network-wide now.

Gambling technology company Playtech on Thursday announced the launch of the new Shoot for Cash series, which was created by their content studio Origins. It is the first game of its kind to be certified for the UK market.

Beginning with Space Hunter, the Shoot for Cash series takes retro arcade-style gameplay and brings it to the world of Casino play, adding a new spin to a classic format. It is available network-wide now.

Players control power cannons, shooting spaceships for wins, and the bigger the ship, the higher the payout. In the Free Shots mode, cannons vary in power level, increasing the potential, while the Supernova Explosion feature destroys all ships in the surrounding area for a major win boost.

Eran Gilboa, Head of Content Unit at Playtech commented: “We’re very excited by the potential of Space Hunter and the Shoot for Cash series. For over 40 years, arcade shooters have been a huge favorite with gamers, and bringing this style of gameplay to slots offers something genuinely fresh in regulated Casino markets. The Shoot for Cash concept and gameplay mechanics have been carefully designed, underlining Playtech’s continued commitment to delivering the best entertainment-led experience to key strategic audiences across regulated markets.”

Amir Levy, Producer of the Game at Origins (a Playtech studio) stated: “Space Hunter and the wider Shoot for Cash format is unlike anything we’ve produced before. It’s been a major project for Origins studio to create such an innovative format and the result is a massively entertaining title that we are confident will be enjoyed by all kinds of players; slots fans and gamers alike. We are proud to deliver a truly original game to audiences in regulated markets worldwide.”

Nolan Frendo, Casino Games Manager at Betvictor added: “Shoot for Cash is an inventive and highly engaging format, and we’re delighted to have had the opportunity to launch Space Hunter for an exclusive period. The player reaction so far has been fantastic, with all the signs being that both Space Hunter and the wider Shoot for Cash concept have what it takes to be long-term favorites.”
