Leading provider of live casino content, Evolution Gaming, has just enriched its suite with Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt, an authentic game that features elements of live game show, with the option to play in VR (Virtual Reality) mode.
The new title by the brand is based on the well-known Gonzo character and intellectual property (IP) from NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest online slot title. The game is the newest addition to Evolution’s live game portfolio. The game will be Evolution’s first one to take advantage of NetEnt IP while blending elements of live experience and slots.
As part of the new release, players will search for hidden treasures in a huge wall of 70 stones. The main character of the game will enter the augmented reality and support players in the search. Players will also have an option to play Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt in VR mode via a Virtual Realityheadset and controller. All these will increase the level of engagement and prolong betting sessions.
Commenting on the new addition to the portfolio, Chief Product Officer at Evolution Todd Haushalter, said:
“This is our first product that combines the best of NetEnt with Evolution. I’ve been excited to work with the amazing NetEnt intellectual property since the acquisition was announced and we are starting by taking the most famous character in slots and bringing him to live casino.”
Haushalter added that the game will be the first one where users have such a high degree of control over the game strategy and the potential outcome. Unlike other titles where the outcome is the outcome and there is nothing players can do about it, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt allows players to take control as they are searching for the prizes.
This is a completely new direction for the brand’s game as they want to spread the definition of what a game show represents. At the same time, they want to give players additional control and attract new customers. He concluded:
“We are continuing to evolve what the gambling experience can be, and this is an incredibly exciting landmark launch.”
