In the latest episode of Beyond the Reels, James Ross is joined by Amusnet Interactive’s Yordan Georgiev in a discussion about the company’s latest charitable slot title, Drops of Water, which donates a portion of its profits to initiatives in India and Africa.
Drops of Water is a 5×3 reel slot with 20-fixed paylines that sees three per cent of its profits donated to international water-funding charities. The game includes water drop respins, cash value symbols and a four-level jackpot cards feature.
When asked about the various features within the game, Georgiev explained the title’s waterdrop respin bonus game mode. He stated: “Once the player sees five bonus symbols on the screen, then he triggers the respin feature.
“Once it is visualised in front of him, these five bonus symbols are transformed into drops of water with different amounts of money that you can collect, then the feature starts and the player has three respins to make where the goal is to see a full screen of drops with amounts of money.”
Amusnet has used the Jackpot Cards feature in other titles before, with Georgiev commenting that “the jackpot card is a very famous feature that we have in our games”.
He added: “The interesting thing is that it can be triggered anytime by any player. So playing the game Drops of Water, any player can trigger the jackpot card feature. They will see a screen with 12 cards where the player can select from.
“The goal in this jackpot feature is to collect one of the four levels that we have. We have clubs, we have diamonds, we have hearts, and spades, and the first three cards that are open from the player are the amount of money that player can collect.
Georgiev was questioned on whether the company had considered creating another charity game after Drops of Water, to which he responded: “Of course we have. We have ideas for another game with a charity. We have released Drops of Water this month and we’ll see how it performs. We will definitely make another game for charity purposes.”
