HTML5 real-money casino game based on Atari arcade classic to be showcased by company at ICE Totally Gaming
Pariplay Ltd., a Douglas, Isle of Man-based gaming software company serving iGaming operators, land-based casinos and iLotteries, has announced the launch of the real-money online slot Black Widow®, based on the iconic Atari Interactive arcade game. Developed by Pariplay in HTML5, Black Widow® is optimized for play on all devices and the company will demonstrate the new title at its ICE Totally Gaming conference booth in London, from 2nd to 4th February 2016.
In Q2 2014, Pariplay agreed an exclusive strategic partnership with Atari Interactive, the computer and video game entertainment corporation, to develop real-money online casino slots based on a series of Atari arcade games. The new Black Widow® slot developed by Pariplay’s in-house development studio, which has brought to market over 100 online slots, instant win games, scratch cards, bingo and keno games, is the first title to be launched under the Atari partnership.
The original Atari video arcade game Black Widow® was released in 1982 and involved players maneuvering the eponymous spider around its web while shooting various insects to win bonuses. Instead of winning bonus points and shooting beetles, mosquitoes and hornets, Pariplay’s 5-reel, 3-line Black Widow® slot allows players to win real money by taking a simple spin in a sophisticated online casino setting.
Black Widow® is an HTML5 game and so play is optimized for tablets and smart phones as well as desktop, with game control panels specific to each device. Featuring state-of-the-art graphics, including ‘Seek and Destroy’ wilds and cartoon-style insects armed with automatic weapons, bazookas and grenades, the slot boasts a military-style soundtrack and high-quality sound effects. Black Widow® offers players free spins and also boasts two bonus games as well as ‘Turbo Mode’ functionality, which speeds up the action for players.
With a return-to-player (RTP) value of 94.8%, Black Widow® offers players an opportunity for financial reward as well as fun. The company will unveil additional Atari-branded slots that balance the thrill of online gambling with the pure entertainment value of 1980s-style arcade slots later in Q1 2016. Upcoming titles include Asteroids®, Pong®, and Tempest®.
“It’s with great pleasure that we launch Black Widow®, the first in what will be a long line of Pariplay slots combining the brand equity of Atari’s arcade games with our expertise at developing industry-leading casino games for global gaming operators,” said Gili Lisani, CEO of Pariplay Ltd. “Our Black Widow® slot’s launch marks a new era for us as game developer, so it’s fitting that we unveil the title at ICE Totally Gaming, the industry’s most important annual event.”
The Pariplay team will be carrying out demos of Black Widow® and the company’s full portfolio of games at ICE Totally Gaming in London’s ExCel Centre. Pariplay will be exhibiting at Booth N2-150.
