SG Digital Showcases Latest Game Innovations at ICE
LAS VEGAS – February 07, 2018 – Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) announces that SG Digital, a leader in iGaming, Sports Betting and iLottery, has unveiled a comprehensive portfolio of new games at this year’s ICE Totally Gaming exhibition in London, offering some of the most exciting and engaging content available on the market.
Featured in the suite of new games is Tetris® Super Jackpots, which brings one of the most recognized video game brands in the world to the online slot sector for the first time. In this title, developed by SG Digital’s Bally studio, players will be mesmerized by the iconic Tetriminos. To add to the frantic fun, Tetris® Super Jackpots also includes an exciting Tetrimino feature in the base game, which can occur randomly on any spin. If activated, the Tetrimino feature will randomly be placed on or above the reels, replacing any covered symbols with a random Tetrimino. The feature can add up to 477 additional ways for players to win. The title also boasts a free games bonus that features the catchy Tetris theme song with guaranteed wins.
SG Digital will also showcase Wonder Hounds™, the latest innovative title from the NextGen Gaming studio, part of the recently acquired NYX Gaming Group. The 3x5, 25-payline slot has players join a pack of international pooches on the prowl for big prizes. Up to 15 sticky wilds can be awarded during the free games round, while the Wonder Hounds icons can transform into a Wild reel per spin. Wonder Hounds will launch in February 2018 to coincide with the Lunar New Year - Year of the Dog. As part of the launch, NextGen is proud to be making a charitable contribution to animal welfare charities.
The launches represent the combined creative forces of legacy SG Interactive and NYX Gaming Group. The new SG Digital division of Scientific Games will offer the broadest portfolio of games in the iGaming industry from its world-class development studios.
Matt Davey, Group Chief Executive, SG Digital, said, “We’re excited to showcase the first of our new and innovative games launched under the SG Digital brand.
“Following the creation of our new digital division, we have brought together the leading creative minds of the iGaming industry to offer our partners the broadest portfolio available in the market.
“We’re showing a mix of titles at ICE, ranging from branded-slots to bespoke storylines. TETRIS Super Jackpots, inspired by the classic Game Boy title, is sure to resonate with fans of the iconic series, while users will love the entertainment that games like Wonder Hounds have to offer.”
Additionally, SG Digital will showcase three MONOPOLY titles, each highlighting iconic features from the perennial favorite board game.
