HungryBear Gaming has secured a “landmark deal” with Blueprint Gaming, enhancing its flagship multiplayer series Slot Masters by combining it with the latter’s established slot titles.
Through the agreement, HungryBear will enhance the Slot Masters offering with new titles that use designs and themes from Blueprint Gaming’s IP and games catalogue. The partnership listed Fishin’ Frenzy, King Kong Cash, Luck O’ The Irish and Wish Upon a Jackpot as potential collaborative Slot Masters releases.
“We are over the moon to be partnering with the UK’s leading supplier of slots content,” said Justin Chamberlain, CEO of HungryBear, commenting on the agreement.
“The partnership with Blueprint allows us to further enhance and improve the Slot Masters experience by offering players the opportunity to play the world’s leading multiplayer game with the legendary and industry-leading content and IP that Blueprint owns.
“Huge titles such as Fishin’ Frenzy, King Kong Cash, Luck O’ The Irish, Wish Upon a Jackpot and more will all be utilised by HungryBear to create incredible and unique Slot Masters games for our customers and players to enjoy.”
As a multiplayer slot title, Slot Masters sees players go head-to-head with a free-to-play tournament format in which they can affect both their own and their opposition’s score with attack and defence weapons.
With this move, HungryBear will increase the distribution of Slot Masters as it allows the game to be “enjoyed by a new audience familiar with Blueprint’s wide catalogue of games”.
Matt Cole, Managing Director of Blueprint Gaming, said: “We are constantly exploring ways of taking our popular content in exciting new directions through new concepts and mechanics.
“HungryBear’s Slot Masters format is a truly innovative free-to-play tournament which is already proving to resonate with a wide audience of players. Through this first-of-its-kind partnership, we are combining the best of Blueprint and HungryBear to offer operators a unique marketing proposition.”
Speaking with SlotBeats, Chamberlain detailed the inspiration behind Slot Masters and the multiplayer features it showcases in a tell-all Beyond the Reels episode.
