After agreeing a partnership deal in November, online casino games developer Core Gaming and British gaming technologies firm Storm Gaming Technology have now launched the five-reel and 20-payline Pharaoh’s Wild slot.
Themed on ancient Egypt, the HTML5 Pharaoh’s Wild is already live at SkyVegas.com where it has rapidly climbed the charts to be ranked as one of the site’s top-five slots in terms of margin and player numbers.
“Pharaoh’s Wild has been a spectacular success so far on SkyVegas.com, but is it any wonder,” said Justin Chamberlain, Chief Executive Officer for Solihull-based Core Gaming.
“With lots of opportunities to win and some exciting bonus features, it is only a matter of time before we hear of a huge winner on this game.”
Pharaoh’s Wild comes complete with a trio of bonus features and rewards players for correctly matching two, three, four or five symbols per spin. It offers a top prize of up to £250,000 ($359,488) with competitors able to adjust the odds on any win via a special gamble feature.
Storm Gaming Technology revealed that players can enjoy Pharaoh’s Wild for as little as £0.20 ($0.28) per spin while collecting a trio of wolf icons, which substitute for other symbols to help create a line win, will trigger the free spins bonus game.
Pharaoh’s Wild additionally offers a 20 percent chance of a surprise retrigger of wild spins with an ancient mummy icon conjuring up a wild symbol to repeat this feature for at least five spins. This mummy also comes into play at random while the reels are spinning with multiple characters appearing to trigger three or more wilds.
“The launch of our first joint game online with Core Gaming has been phenomenally successful to date,” said Richard Sheldon, Managing Director for Shifnal-based Storm Gaming Technology.
“We are working closely with the Core Gaming team to produce a two-year roadmap of games for online. The fact that the first game, Pharaoh’s Wild, has gone straight to the top of the charts underlines the strength of our collaboration.”
