(PRESS RELEASE) — Pariplay, a gaming technology company serving iGaming operators, land-based casinos and lotteries, has launched Rio Fever, an original online video slot. Developed by Pariplay’s in-house studio, the game combines appealing aesthetics, tantalising bonuses and innovative features to encourage strong player acquisition and retention.
Complete with a Samba-inspired soundtrack and glamorous graphics that evoke the flamboyance of the Rio Carnival, Pariplay’s exciting Rio Fever game gives players plenty of reasons to party this summer. The game release also coincides with a time during which Brazilian fever is running even higher as the nation’s football team continues to progress in the World Cup. Featuring 4x5 reels and 40 lines, the title also includes various bonuses, including wild symbols, free spins, and both random and expanding wilds. Players can dance the night away, for even longer, by triggering the ‘Rio Fever Bonus Wheel’ feature.
Designed for a global audience, Rio Fever is available in 16 different languages and will encapsulate the current football fever sweeping the world. In addition to English, the title is optimised for play in Chinese, French, Dutch, German, Swedish, Norwegian and more.
Rio Fever was developed in HTML5, allowing for play across smartphones, tablets and desktop. The release continues Pariplay’s emphasis on developing mobile-optimised titles, a strategy which recently saw the company win the ‘Mobile Gaming Software’ accolade at the 2018 eGR B2B Awards in recognition of its interactive gaming system eyeON.
Certified by gaming regulators in the UK, Isle of Man and Malta, Rio Fever boasts a 96% return to player (RTP) ratio and therefore gives players a favourable incentive to join the fun. The ‘Autobet/Autoplay’ feature, which can be set for 10 to 50 rounds, is another convenient game option. Meanwhile, ‘reality check’ has also been incorporated to promote responsible gaming.
The addition of Rio Fever further expands Pariplay’s collection of over 100 titles. These include original games, such as the recently-launched World Cup Keno game, along with Chitty Bang and Wild Cherry. Atari Star Raiders, Valiant Entertainment’s Bloodshot, and The Three Stooges all form part of the company’s portfolio of branded titles.
Richard Mintz, Commercial and Marketing Director at Pariplay, said: “With Rio Fever, both our partners and their players are invited to an exciting gameplay experience that embodies the carnival atmosphere, while providing eye-catching graphics and plenty of big win potential with each spin. With the Brazilian football team one of the favourites at the World Cup, we felt this was the perfect time to roll the game out.”
