Microgaming Secure Bingo Distribution Deal
Microgaming, the award-winning software developer has announced a distribution deal which will see a new gaming product offered across their entire network, and it’s a lot different to what they usually offer. Video bingo is the latest trend and the creative team behind bingo with a Latin American flair are known as Neko Games; an up-and-coming game design and development studio from Buenos Aires in Argentina.
The exclusive distribution deal is very different to the usual video slots we see, which means they’ll be switching up the reels and the pay lines for a bingo ticket and some additional chances to win. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the traditional game of bingo, there are 90-balls per game.
Prizes up for grabs are one-line, two lines and a full house. The first person to mark 5 numbers across on a ticket wins the line. Two lines sees the winner netting a prize with two lines of five numbers while the full house winner, is the person(s) who manage to complete the entire ticket of 15 numbers before anyone else.
Neko Bingo Style
Instead of a 90-ball limit, there are only 30 drawn (usually, the ball count continues until there’s a winner), and in those calls, you have the potential to match one-line (5 numbers), two-lines (10 numbers) and a full house (all 15 numbers).
If after the game comes to a conclusion and you are near to winning, should your number offer a win of more than 8x your stake, you will be offered eh chance to purchase additional balls to try and win. The studio’s first title is Super Showball and delivers a Brazilian gaming experience with traditional British twist.
Delivering high volatility action via a mobile-friendly interface Super Showball combines iconic video bingo games with new bonus elements to keep players on the edge of their seat. Add to that a mystery prize feature and whopping great win potential of 4000x your stake!
“Video bingo games are particularly popular in LATAM, and the team at Neko Games have done a tremendous job with their debut title, Super Showball. We are pleased to welcome the studio to our content aggregation platform and look forward to working with them on further diversifying our portfolio for Microgaming customers worldwide.” – Leon Thomas, Commercial Director at Microgaming.
