Pragmatic Play does double duty launching new video slot Curse of the Werewolf Megaways and inking BlueOcean Gaming content deal
Setting the mood for the fast-approaching fall and winter seasons, Pragmatic Play has added a thrilling new slot title to its portfolio; one that has players come face-to-face with a terrifying creature in Curse of the Werewolf Megaways. The new slot comes hot on the heels of the provider’s new commercial deal with B2B online gambling software provider, BlueOcean Gaming.
The high volatility video slot offers a max 46,656 paylines and a 6-reel, 6-row grid where the action plays out on the cobbled street of a quaint European village being terrorized by Werewolves. Adding to the immersive setting is a spooky soundtrack with plenty of spine-tingling howling and shrieks, as well as the Megaways mechanic on loan from Big Time Gaming.
“With dark nights starting to creep back in, we think it’s a perfect time to release our spooky new hit.”
As for the game’s symbols, they include 10 through A card values, four villagers, and a wolf. Players will need to land at least three of a kind cards to win, while it’ll take the same for the two-legged characters, with two or more needed for wolfie to win. Appearing on reels 2 to 6, the parchment that has been slashed serves as the game’s Wild and substitutes for any of the regular pay symbols to aid in making winning combinations.
Players landing at least three of the wolf howling at the moon Bonus symbols advance to the Extra Spins Round, where the Werewolves run amok beneath a full moon. Regular Werewolves are replaced by attacking Werewolf symbols, and when they land, they remove 1 to 5 lives from one of the high-value characters. If the character loses all five lives, it is replaced by Werewolves and players are awarded an additional Extra Spin.
Chief Commercial Officer for Pragmatic Play, Melissa Summerfield, said this about the new slot in a company presser…
“With dark nights starting to creep back in, we think it’s a perfect time to release our spooky new hit, Curse of the Werewolf Megaways™.
“Combining the Megaways™ mechanic with immersive gameplay and a thrilling theme, we can’t wait to see how the game is received by our operator partners and fans alike.”
Pragmatic’s latest online slot game, timed perfectly just as days start to shorten and the nights get darker, joins its fast-growing video slot portfolio, which recently saw the addition of Jungle Gorilla and Street Racer, along with the multi-product content provider’s very first branded title, Peaky Blinders.
The exciting new video slot closely follows the Gibraltar-headquartered company’s content deal with B2B online casino software provider, BlueOcean Gaming, for its live casino offering.
