Online casino game developer Pariplay has announced that they've launched their newest video slot 'Pong', which is based on the all-time classic Atari video game of the same name.
Atari launched 45 years ago and took the world by storm. Thanks to a licensing deal between the video game company and Pariplay, a slew of themed slots have been developed, with Pong being the newest title. The graphically impressive game is a 5 reel, 20 payline affair, complete with an arcade cabinet in the background and neon visuals that blow away the original game. The game's features include a constantly shifting wild symbol in the middle, which awards re-spins, shifting symbol, stacked wilds, win multipliers, and more. The game has a posted RTP percentage of 96.29%, which is very healthy for an online slot, and it's designed to appeal to those who enjoyed the game as a child.
Speaking about the release Pariplay Commercial Director Richard Mintz said, "As the first truly popular arcade video game, Pong® holds a unique place in the history of gaming and we're very excited about its addition to our robust collection of online slots. Designed to appeal to a wide range of players with varying experience levels, we're confident that Pong will prove to be Pariplay's greatest Atari® -branded slot yet."
Atari CEO Fred Chesnais also commented, noting: "Pong® is the game that has defined the videogame industry. It was natural for us to bring it to real-money slot machines, as it is a game that millions have enjoyed and keep enjoying. Best of luck to all players!"
Pong is available for play now at casinos offering Pariplay's gaming library.
