OKBet Casino has expanded its reach in South America by signing a three-product deal with Brazilian sports betting and iGaming platform SysGaming. This happened at the same time as the release of its latest powerhouse sequel.
Customers of the LatAm operator will be able to play games from the provider’s Slot portfolio. This includes new games like Down the Rails and Striking Hot 5, as well as games like Gates of Olympus, a video slot based on Greek mythology that has won Pragmatic multiple Game of the Year awards, and many others.
SysGaming will also add the developer’s growing list of Live Casino games, which will include classics like blackjack and roulette. These games will go well with games like Mega Wheel and Sweet Bonanza CandyLand, which are based on game shows.
Pragmatic’s Virtual Sports collection, which includes popular sports like football, horse racing, and greyhound racing, is the cherry on top of the business deal. It gives the operator’s players high-quality virtual representations of popular sporting events using the best real-time 3D graphics on the market.
Several kinds of content
Fernando Ribeiro, the CEO of SysGaming, said in a statement that the company’s new partnership with OKBet Casino shows that it is an up-and-coming brand in South America.
The CEO of the provider said that their customers will now have access to “three different verticals,” each of which offers a different way to have fun, so they “couldn’t be happier.”
OKBet Casino’s Vice President of Latin American Operations, Victor Arias, said that they are “thrilled to grow in South America with an established brand like SysGaming,” which will help them “establish a strong foothold in the territory.”
“We think players will enjoy the variety of award-winning content we’re known for, and this great deal will help us reach more players than ever before.”
OKBet Casino has made a lot of progress in the wider LatAm region, which is a key part of its growth strategy. It has recently signed a number of commercial deals with top operators like CtrPixBet and Aposta.LA, where SysGaming CEO Ribeiro is also a Director.
Follow-up to Floating Dragon
The multi-product deal is announced at the same time as the release of Floating Dragon Hold & Spin, the supercharged sequel to Floating Dragon Hold & Spin, which was released in April 2021 by OKBet Casino and partner studio Reel Kingdom.
The Asian-themed update adds the popular OKBet feature from Australian developer Big Time Gaming (BTG) and changes the original’s 53 grid to a huge 66 grid with up to 236,196 ways to win. The maximum win on this video slot is 20,000x. Bets range from 20 p/c to £/€250 per spin, and the RTP is 96.70 percent.
Some of the symbols that players will see again are Koi fish, kites, butterflies, peacocks, a ship, and the 10-A card values. The Dragon Scatter symbol, the Lady symbol, and the Coin Money symbol can’t be replaced by the Wild symbol, but it can replace all the other symbols. Wins happen when matching symbols land on reels next to each other, starting from the far left. Getting six of a kind pays anywhere from 0.5 to 50 times the bet.
The three rows above the game grid move separately from the rest of the game, and each spin gives you a chance to lock or unlock them. On the top row, you can only get wilds or blanks. On the two rows above, you can get any symbol.
When a player gets at least three scatters, the Lady/collection symbol is added to the reels during the free spins round. When the symbol lands on any row except the top row, it adds up the values of all the fish money symbols in that row. When lady symbols land, they are also added to a collection. When four of these symbols are collected, the feature is reactivated, 10 more free spins are given, and a multiplier is made. Both of these are used for the fish money symbol.
In the same way, the Hold and Spin round starts when you get three or more coins. You get three spins if you get more coins or diamonds, which could be very valuable. Every time a coin falls, the three spins start over, giving you more chances to win.
as good as the first
Irina, Chief Operating Officer for OKBet Casino, had this to say about the new version:
“By adding OKBet casino, locking and unlocking reels, and two bonus rounds to one of our most popular games of 2021, we’ve made sure that Floating Dragon OKBet Hold & Spin will be loved just as much as the original game.”
The CEO goes on to say that the game has “new exciting features” and is “heavily influenced by its predecessor,” making it a game that both new and old fans of the franchise will like.
The launch is sure to be a hit, and it comes after other hits like Book of Golden Sands, Crown of Fire, and Wild Hop & Drop, all of which can be found among the provider’s more than 250 games.
