Pragmatic Play unveils new Halloween-themed slot Infective Wild


iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play has launched a new Halloween-themed game called Infective Wild. Described by the supplier as “spooky,” the slot boasts symbols including black cats, ravens and more foreshadowing icons. These must form a matched combination across the title’s 40 paylines to award a win

Wilds can be substituted for any base game symbols, offering up the chance of extra wins. Additionally, if Wilds land adjacent to a high-paying symbol, these icons will transform into additional Wilds. These Wilds will continue to spread across the reels as they touch any further high-paying symbols.

This “infective” feature is built upon in the free spins round, which is unlocked by landing at least three scatters. Before the bonus begins, eight mini-reels spin with each granting up to three free spins in the bonus. 

Any Wilds landed upon the commencement of the free spins will be held on the titles’ 5×5 reels throughout all subsequent spins. This allows more symbols to be transformed with each spin.  

Infective Wild’s inventive mechanics mirror Pragmatic Play’s focus on mechanical ingenuity that has featured across its portfolio and numerous recent hits including Tundra’s Fortune, Cash Chips and Demon Pots,” the company said in a statement.

Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “We set out to create a game that embodies the spooky spirit of Halloween while also offering an unexpected mechanic – Infective Wild with its infectious feature spreading Wilds across the reels does just that and more. 

Providing big win potential in the base game and a culmination of Wild wins in the bonus, the slot provides thrills that can be enjoyed all year round as well as throughout the spooky season. We’re excited to see the reception this Halloween-themed slot has from players and operators alike.” 

Pragmatic Play currently produces up to eight new slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through a single API.        

Earlier in the week, the provider confirmed its presence at the upcoming SBC Summit Latinoamérica. Exhibiting at stands G40 and H40, the supplier says that its portfolio of multi-product content will be on display to “cement its standing as the leading supplier to the Latin American market.”

Pragmatic Play will also be a Gold Headline Sponsor of the event, where the team will join attendees at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Miami from the 31st of October to the 2nd of November.
