Isle of Man based gaming firm Pariplay Ltd has announced that it has signed a content deal with Atari, and will offer an instant win game based on the classic video game property "Asteroids".
The game was developed by Pariplay, and will be offered in HTML5 format to maximize the amount of devices the game can be played on. The game will feature high definition graphics, and will see players scratching the game's surface to try to get three identical symbols. The top prize in the game is $100,000, and the title will have a baked in 94.9% Return to Player Percentage. The game's launch comes after the successful Black Widow slot earlier this year.
If the online gaming success continues for the Atari games, there will be more games announced in the future.
Commenting on the launch Pariplay General Manager Adrian Baily said, "Our Atari®-branded games are a key focus for our development studio, so we're excited to bring to market a sophisticated, highly interactive instant-win title that's based on such an iconic arcade game as Asteroids®. Atari® Asteroids effectively balances the skill and entertainment focuses of the original arcade classic with the excitement of real-money iGaming, so it's likely to become an important game in operators' offerings in a range of markets."
Atari CEO Fred Chesnais also commented on the deal, noting: "Online gambling is an integral part of our strategy. Given Pariplay's strong reputation in software development in the real-money iGaming space, we're more than ever committed to this activity and we believe that, with the Atari brand and Atari games, we can definitely become a major player in the space."
