Big Time Gaming’s (BTG) new Player Select mechanic made its debut this week at LeoVegas Group via Scientific GamesOpenGaming, incorporated into the King of Cats title, representing another first for the slot developer.

BTG will take the new mechanic network wide on 26 May, with customers on the OpenGaming ecosystem having exclusivity on the game until 19 August.

Player Select allows players choice over two different games, wherein they can dial into an entirely new game at the touch of the alt spin button.

Dylan Slaney, SVP gaming at Scientific Games Digital, explained: “King of Cats is yet another fantastic release from BTG that features cutting edge gameplay and new mechanics which are sure to be popular with players.

“We are delighted to have provided LeoVegas with the first opportunity to experience the excitement of this game before delivering another hit on the OpenGaming network that provides more immersive experiences for players worldwide.”

King of Cats takes players on a psychedelic world safari from the Savannas of Africa to the Jungles of darkest Peru. The newest addition to BTG’s slots portfolio also incorporates the acclaimed Megaways game engine, which gives players up to 117,649 ways to win on every spin.

“King of Cats is really about rip-roaring entertainment,” commented BTG CEO, Nick Robinson. “At Big Time Gaming, we’re constantly looking at ways to ramp up player engagement and to reimagine what a slot can do and how we can take it somewhere completely new. With King of Cats, we think we nailed it. This game really is a win.”

Johan Ekberg, group casino games manager at LeoVegas Group, added: “We love getting early access to Big Time Gaming’s new slots because our players love them and the Player Select mechanic will undoubtedly bring a whole new level of action for players to enjoy.”
