B2B gaming provider Inspired Entertainment announced Monday it will once again be showcasing its suite of entertaining and differentiated cross-platform content in Booth #S2-310 at this year’s ICE London tradeshow at ExCel London, February 7–9.
Highlights will include Inspired’s new Vantage server-based ready cabinet, its omni-channel content, the licensed Home Run Shootout Legends virtual baseball game and NFLA Legends Football, and the first and only Women’s Virtual Soccer, among others.
Brooks Pierce, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inspired, explained: “ICE is the biggest B2B gambling industry event in the world, and a great opportunity for customers to experience the strength and breadth of the product offerings that make Inspired ‘Winning Entertainment’.”
Pierce described Inspired as always striving to make great games that wow players, and said ICE patrons will be able to see the company’s innovations at the Inspired booth, “along with a few surprises.”
“This diverse portfolio is strengthened and broadened with our brand-new Vantage cabinet, being showcased for the first time at ICE, which gives operators a premium suite of gaming cabinets, content and features that is sure to ‘win’ over players,” he concluded.
ICE visitors will be able to see Inspired’s suite of customized content and premium cabinets. This year, the company is debuting its Vantage server-based ready cabinet, which is powered by an intelligent operating system that can deliver content to address the preferences of every player, whether they are looking for time-on-device or larger jackpots, and allows players to search, sort and swipe for games in record time.
The Valor 8 multi-game video lottery terminal “continues to impress in the North American market,” according to the company, with its latest placement of 820 units in Saskatchewan for Western Canada Lottery Corporation.
ICE patrons can play some of the titles that are giving Valor “such strong comparative performance,” including the Burn7sBurn wide area progressive, Big Peggy Bonus WAP and the Egyptian-themed Scarab Gold.
Inspired has a proven track record of creating feature-rich games for regulated gaming, betting, lottery, social and leisure operators across land-based and mobile channels worldwide, noted the company. Attendees will see how Inspired’s games work across its product portfolio.
The strongest performing slot themes, including Gold Cash and Cops ‘n’ Robbers family of games, will be on display on multiple gaming platforms, including the new Community three-player version. The newest game offerings feature an exciting key mechanic, Fortune Spins, that can be switched on and chosen as an alternative to spinning the normal base-game reels.
Other cross-platform titles will also be on display. Big Fishing Fortune, which was nominated for Eilers & Krejcik Gaming Top Performing NEW Online Slot, can be played on a game cabinet, online or on a mobile device.
Space Invaders, bringing the 80s gaming nostalgia, is also available for Gaming and iGaming customers, as well as pub, holiday park and motorway service customers in the UK. Scarab Gold has also been transformed into an iLottery game; and Clockwork Orange, an instantly recognizable iconic brand, is also joining the stellar line-up of high-performing community games for the Fortune Community product.
“ICE is a great opportunity to see Inspired’s three “big” must-have, must-play, innovative Free Spin bonus mechanics: Big Bonus, Big Spin Bonus and Big Fortune,” the company stated in a press release. “These bonus mechanics are now offered in many of Inspired’s retail and iGaming games with the aim to keep players spinning and collecting wins.”
Inspired will also be debuting its new leaderboard functionality at this year’s ICE, which gives operators and venues a tool to draw in players and provides “an additional incentive to play.”
Route venues can use leaderboards to introduce a competitive and promotional element to gameplay, adding a new play dimension “that evokes the familiarity and nostalgia of traditional ranking tables.” The leaderboard’s easy-to-use interface empowers venues to set up and host customized tournaments with minimal effort.
The company will also showcase its Virtual Sports featuring officially licensed products from all-time great MLBPAA and NFLA players. Its Home Run Shootout Legends game pits renowned players, including Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle.
For football fans, the NFLA Legends Football brings favorite retired NFLA legends back to the field in a fast-paced contest with multiple betting markets including spread, money lines and parlays. And, leading up to the Women’s World Cup, Inspired is the first and only provider to showcase a Women’s Virtual Soccer product.
The popular Horses Chase, the only virtual horse race available with 40 runners, will also be displayed, as well as a new US Horses with legendary play-by-play announcer Larry Collmus. Meanwhile, the simple Marbles product is “thrilling and easy to play, making it a fan favorite with a variety of different tracks and obstacles to create unpredictable endings.”
