Pragmatic Play follows Playbonds’ content deal with release of new farmyard-inspired video slot Barn Festival
Updated:2024-06-18 17:32    Views:101

Hot on the heels of its Playbonds deal and multi-product content provider to the iGaming industry Pragmatic Play has launched its latest slot title, Barn Festival, taking us from outer space in its intergalactic adventure Spaceman to the farm in record time.

This 6-reel, 5-row countryside escape has 20 paylines and is highly volatile, like most of the provider’s slots. During your time in the pasture, you’ll find the farmyard-inspired spinner uses a potentially lucrative pays-anywhere system, with wins formed by landing eight or more of the same symbols anywhere on the reels.

Paytable and features:

A total of nine symbols comprise the game’s paytable, including diamond, club, heart, and spade card suits, while eggplant, corn on the cob, mushrooms, oranges and strawberries are premiums. The former pay from $0.50 up to $16, or 2 to 8 times the stake, for 12 or more, and the latter, from $2.00 to $100, or 10 to 50 times the stake, for landing 12 or more of the highest paying symbol (strawberries).

When wins form, the tumble feature is triggered and all winning symbols are removed. The remaining symbols drop to the bottom of the reels and new symbols fall from above to fill the empty positions. This tumbling process repeats itself until no new winning combinations follow a tumble.

Money symbol and respins:

During base gameplay, money symbols (a pot of gold) that land as part of these wins come with a multiplier ranging from 1x to 500x the total bet. Landing three of them changes their values into win multipliers, after which, they are added together and used to multiply the value of either the current or next winning spin. Money symbols can land on any reel.

If you’re lucky enough to land four or more money symbols, either together or via multiple tumbles, the Money Respin feature will be activated. When this happens, a 4×5 grid replaces the base game reels and three respins are awarded. If new money symbols hit, they also lock in place and the number of respins is reset when additional money symbols land or any feature triggering symbol appears during the round.

In addition to the pot of gold money symbol, other special symbols, including Add value, Multiply, Collect symbols, Unlock, which adds a reel to the grid then becomes a money symbol, and a persistent variant of each of the first three. The Unlock symbol is key to unlocking the game’s 20,000x max win.

Impresssive highs:

Commenting on what is “a vibrant and fun addition” to the provider’s fast-growing slot catalog, Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer for Pragmatic Play, said…

“It provides an entirely new experience for players by augmenting respin features previously found in the bonus round of our smash hit Empty the Bank™, taking them to previously unseen heights.”

Playbonds deal:

Barn Festival’s release follows the deal with Playbrands Group owned and operated gaming platform, Playbonds.com, for its slots and live casino verticals.

Further expanding its presence in Brazil and in the broader LatAm region, the deal sees the operator’s customers gain access to the supplier’s growing portfolio of popular slot titles, including the recently released Irish-themed Rainbow Gold, Wild Beach Party and another player favorite, Fruit Party, which is the original to the colorful sequel released in summer 2021.

Playbonds’ customers will also be able to experience Pragmatic Play’s live casino games, which includes card game classics like Baccarat and Blackjack, in addition to Sweet Bonanza Candyland, which transforms its 2019 hit slot Sweet Bonanza into a mega wheel-style game with two exciting bonus games.

Key expansion:

Commenting on the agreement , Victor Arias, Vice President of Latin American Operations for Pragmatic Play, said…

“The operator’s player base will now gain access to our award winning games and we look forward to seeing how their customers receive our titles. This deal marks another key expansion for us into the Latin American market as we look to become a leading provider in the region.”

Global ambition:

Playbonds is Pragmatic’s newest partner in Latin America, as it maintains an excelerated growth rate in the region. The Malta-based online casino content provider has significantly grown its footprint across the region since the 2020 launch of its continental hub, having inked deals with online casino operator Bet7K in Brazil and Super 7 in Buenos Aires in March alone.

Marcos Correa at Playbonds also commented on the agreement, saying that partnering with Pragmatic Play and introducing their “world renowned” titles to their players “helps to reinforce their reputation as a company with global ambition.”

He explained that a “key goal” of theirs is to deliver the “highest quality releases and a wide array of choices” to their players, and they “look forward” to seeing where the partnership takee them.
