Pragmatic Play Launches Mega Wheel Live Casino Game
November 20, 2020
Popular iGaming software developer Pragmatic Play just announced a novel live casino game of chance called Mega Wheel, and the title is available across a range of devices. Hosted by talented in-house presenters, the studio claims “the game is designed with current market demands in mind”.
Mega Wheel replicates the experience of being part of a live-TV show and draws focus on an oversized wheel with 54 multicoloured sections, each of which has a number signifying the payout. The figures are 1, 2, 5, 8, 10, 20, 30, and 40, and multiply the stake according to the corresponding limit.
Mega Wheel is inspired by Money Wheel and Big Six, while the goal is to predict the correct number before the spinning wheel comes to rest. Before every round, one number from the list is automatically selected as the Mega Lucky Number. It increases the player’s chances of winning by as much as 500x the current stake.
Bonuses and Features
The key bonuses of Mega Wheel include Autoplay and Bet on All features where players can choose from nine different wagers on a single move. Advanced Bet Validation and a detailed Bet History are also included in the list of perks. Moreover, Pragmatic Play included a live chat option allowing players to communicate with fellow gamers, the dealer, or the Support team in real-time.
While English is the default language, the game is preloaded with 20 dialects and accepts over a hundred currencies. Gamers can engage with the hosts during live play, which makes it all the more similar to a game show. Pragmatic Play’s state of the art studio further accentuates the experience while featuring dynamic sound effects, lights, and animations that evolve as the game progresses.
The Focus on Live Gaming
Explaining the importance of the live gaming feature, Lena Yasir, Pragmatic Play’s Vice President, in an official Press Release said, “Game shows are truly a landmark in the entertainment industry that relentlessly focuses on player engagement. We’re humbled to be able to provide a similar service to our patrons with the live casino experience that perfectly aligns with the present demands of the market. Mega Wheel is our take on popular live casino game shows and is the first of many to arrive”.
“We believe Mega Wheel’s entertainment quotient appeals to a wide range of players and delivers plenty of conversion opportunities” Lena added. Apart from Mega Wheel, Pragmatic Play also launched the Pirate Gold Deluxe video slot on November 11. The ramped-up version of the original title comes with the novel Lucky Treasure Bag feature along with four modifiers.
It will be interesting to see how the market reacts to Pragmatic Play’s newest live casino offering. Although initial reports complain of a few limitations, how the players adapt to the experience will be something to witness.
