Scientific Games Launches Eagerly Anticipated New iGaming Slot Invaders Megaways
Company’s Major Summer Release Offers Big Win Potential
LAS VEGAS – June 10, 2021 – Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) has gone live with its flagship 2021 iGaming release InvadersMegaways™, a highly polished space-themed title with a feature on every spin and a unique Uni-Cow experience.
The summer’s red-hot slot has launched exclusively with 888casino and will go on general release through Scientific Games’ OpenGaming™ platform from June 15.
With a retro style that takes inspiration from the Company’s much-loved Invaders from the Planet Moolah slot, the attractive new game incorporates the popular Megaways™ mechanic in a unique way and comes complete with a rich features set.
The 6-reel slot is boosted by a unique feature, with a UFO landing on each spin to select a random symbol to turn wild when landing on reels 2 to 5. When a player hits four or more scatter symbols to win free spins, a random picture symbol is selected to act as a wild for the entire round. Each has its own modifier, ranging from expanding wilds to increased Megaways™.
Players are also faced with the tantalising prospect of the Uni-Cow making an appearance in the base game. This results in all reels showing between 7 and 10 symbols, resulting in up to 1,000,000 Megaways™ and other-worldly win potential.
Innovative mechanics are paired with a front end that hits new heights in terms of its attractive design and attention to detail, with the space-age soundtrack adding to the appeal of a slot the comes with responsible gaming tools to ensure a safe and immersive experience.
The release of InvadersMegaways™ adds to the Company’s portfolio of games incorporating the mechanic and sets new standards in terms of presentation, with Jin Ji Bao Xi the next popular title to receive the Megaways™ treatment in July.
Talya Benyamini, VP B2C Casino at 888, said: “Our customers enjoy having access to exclusive games on our platform, and it has been great to offer the opportunity to experience the excitement that comes from playing Invaders Megaways™. We have a really strong relationship with Scientific Games, and this game is another example of bringing high quality content to our players.”
Rob Procter, Content Specialist Director, Digital at Scientific Games, said: “While a new Megaways™ release is guaranteed to cause a buzz, in the case of Invaders Megaways™ we have set new standards in terms of both presentation and gameplay to produce a fresh, exciting new playing experience.
“Having a feature on every spin in the base game adds variety and appeal and we are proud of developing a game that looks as good as this does while also making the very most of the Megaways™ mechanic. The Uni-Cow feature also adds a whole new level of appeal and we can’t wait to see player reactions when it drops.”
