Supplier rolls-out ground-breaking gamification module that drives player engagement and value
Stockholm, 5th April, 2017 – Swedish slots specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, has launched its innovative new Achievements Engine, which has been designed and developed to offer players a more fun and rewarding experience.
The engine makes use of six unique game events that take place in all the supplier’s slots, such as when a scatter appears or when the player has a win with two wild symbols, and rewards players with Quickspin Tokens for achieving them.
Achievements are set over four levels, and pay out at each level. Players can then cash in their tokens to trigger the game’s bonus feature, which is usually free spins but could also be re-spins, side games, and so on.
Players can track their progress, as well as claim and collect their reward on a designated page within each Quickspin slot. It is a relatively simple tool, but one that drives entertainment value and fun by giving back part of a player’s expected losses.
The first game to feature the Quickspin Achievements Engine is Sakura Fortune, a 4×5, 40-line slot that transports players to an enchanted world of cherry blossom and samurai warriors as they guide the game’s beautiful heroine towards untold riches.
Quickspin’s new launch is in line with Playtech’s strategy of integrating additional real-time engagement and retention features and functionality to its offering, enabling licensees to further incentivise, analyse and reward players using cutting-edge gamification, social and communication tools.
Quickspin CEO Daniel Lindberg, said: “Gamification is a hot topic right now, and here at Quickspin we believe we have delivered a perfect version of it with our Achievements Engine. By giving back players part of their expected losses via Quickspin tokens, we can add huge value to their experience.
“It is an effective tool for driving player engagement, too. Inside all of us is an achiever, a part of our brain that like to complete tasks in return for rewards. By building this into our slots via our Achievements Engine, we can better engage players and offer them a more fun and immersive experience.
“We believe our Achievements Engine sets the standard when it comes to gamification, and look forward to receiving operator and player feedback now that it is available through our latest game release, Sakura Fortune,” he added.
Founded in 2011, Quickspin quickly established itself as a leading development studio for real money and social casino gaming and was acquired by Playtech in March 2016.
Now licensed in multiple jurisdictions, its award-winning content has helped the company sign agreements with a long list of leading operators.
