RubyPlay’s slot title Quest of Gods was narrowly pipped in the final of the £100,000 Slots Championship at Lottoland, losing out to Yggdrasil Gaming’s Holmes and the Stolen Stones.
Entering the competition for the first time in its relatively young history, the newcomers took an early lead on day one but as the week progressed it was eventually overtaken, with the final result ending 51 per cent to 49 per cent.
Ittai Zur, chief operating officer at RubyPlay, said: “As a new player in the slots market it was a great honour taking part in the Slots Championship with Lottoland. We also knew it would give us a good idea of how our games compare in terms of popularity with some of the biggest slot developers, competition that we have a lot of respect for.
We are delighted with how “Quest of Gods” resonated with Lottoland players, and to only just miss out on being the Lottoland Slots Champions of 2020 was incredible.”
Quests of Gods had a good run to the final where it dominated its quarter final encounter against NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest, winning by a strong margin of 83 per cent to 17 per cent. The semi-final against the 2019 champion, Mustang Gold from Pragmatic Play, was a much tighter affair with RubyPlay’s slot title winning by 55 per cent to 45 per cent to set up the final with Holmes and the Stolen Stones.
Anthony Morris, VP gaming & sports at Lottoland, added: “We knew that Quest of Gods was popular with our players at Lottoland, but to be honest we didn’t think it would do as well as it did against some smash hit content from other major providers. We look forward to more great games from the team at RubyPlay over the coming months and years.”
