Through its Entain-owned partner, Eurobet, Inspired Entertainment has launched two new games into the Italian retail, online and mobile markets. Penalty Shoot Out is a new Virtual Soccer format that gives players the chance to test their luck in an engaging head-to-head battle between two teams. This first-to-market penalties game brings the pressure and excitement of a penalty shootout to the virtual world. Marble Racing takes a classic game to the next level, with an extra layer of excitement through the introduction of multiple tracks filled with eye-catching obstacles and a wide variety of bets.
Track variants include sand, snow, Halloween, Christmas and soccer-themed events, ensuring that the product stays relevant all year round. Adding to the fun is a new feature, Catchzone Booster, allowing an increase in winnings when a player predicts which of the five catch zones the marbles will land in.
As well as launching online and on mobile, the new virtual games will be launched on two additional channels within the retail venues, meaning that, along with the existing two channels, customers can now bet on four different virtual sports events on the same screen.
“Our focus on player research and innovation has been at the leading edge when it comes to developing award-winning virtual products for the Italian market since 2014,” said Chief Commercial Officer for Virtual Sports, Steve Rogers. “We have continued to evolve and invest in our products for the Italian market alongside our partners, and we have a long-term investment strategy that will continue to deliver new and exciting games across retail and online channels. Entain is a key strategic partner across the globe and deploying these new products to their Italian business via Eurobet is testament to the success of our relationship.”
