BGaming Strikes Video Slots Deal With WBC
May of 2021 saw BGaming strike a deal with the World Boxing Council (WBC). The two will work together to develop a sports-themed video slots game. To date, the only announcement to come out of either camp states that the online casino game developer will create the upcoming WBC Ring of Riches slot. This will introduce a new boxing-themed game to the industry. However, the development of this game has not yet been completed.
Previous Creations By BGaming
In the iGaming industry, online video slots themed around boxing are few and far between. This is why BGaming, with its legendary eye for detail, has been appointed to create and develop Ring of Riches for WBC. Marina Ostrovtsova, a spokesperson for BGaming, expressed her belief in the historical links between casinos and boxing. She said that the link between the two will undoubtedly provide a strong platform from which to develop this innovative, new and exciting licensed video slots game.
At the moment, BGaming does not have any sports slots in its current portfolio. However, all of this is about to change as the developer partners with WBC. To date, some of BGaming’s most popular online video slots include Four Lucky Diamonds, Mechanical Clover, Lucky Lady Moon, Book of Cats, Hit the Route and Avalon: The Lost Kingdom. When the release of WBC’s Ring of Riches comes along, the online casino game developer will mark a new step forward by adding this sports-themed title to its already extensive portfolio.
Early Ring Of Riches Details
In the press release announcing this partnership between WBC and BGaming, it was revealed that the developer was hoping to release Ring of Riches in the next month. This early information seems to also have confirmed the fact that the video slots will be compatible across a whole range of devices. Other information indicated that the structure of the game will follow a five-reel, four row set up. BGaming also revealed that Ring of Riches will feature 20 paylines and have medium volatility.
Of course, the game will also have a number of special features. WBC’s Ring of Riches biggest stand-out feature will be its Wilds. These symbols will take the form of boxing gloves on the reels. The gloves will be able to frame the reel position where they land and will be locked onto the screen for the duration of 10 spins. In addition to this, the Scatter symbols can trigger an extra 10 free spins, increasing a player’s payout potential.
Now all that needs to happen is the release of the game!
