Inspired Entertainment has announced the launch of two new games with its long-standing partner, Eurobet: Penalty Shoot Out (Rigori) and Marble Racing (Palline), available in retail venues, online and on mobile. Eurobet Italia is part of Entain and manages more than 850 betting shops as well as a website dedicated to the Italian market.
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.
Penalty Shoot Out is a new Virtual Soccer format that allows players to engage in a 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, as described by the supplier.
Marble Racing upgrades the classic game via the introduction of multiple tracks filled with eye-catching obstacles and a wide variety of bets. Ten marbles race down different tracks with multiple obstacles that can change the race order at any moment, creating entertaining events with unpredictable endings. Track variants include sand, snow, Halloween, Christmas and soccer-themed events, ensuring that the product stays relevant all year round. A new feature called “Catchzone Booster” allows an increase in winnings when a player predicts which of the five catch zones the marbles will land in.
“Inspired’s 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 Steve Rogers, Chief Commercial Officer, Virtual Sports for Inspired. “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 both retail and online channels.”
Rogers continued, “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 long-standing relationship. We look forward to developing and deploying more new content with them in 2022 and beyond.”
