Kalamba Games is focusing on player retention with its Hold and Win Blitz mode which makes up the foundation of its latest release Hyper Blitz Hold And Win.
Played across 6×4 reels, the classic symbols on the game board must form a matching combination across 25 paylines to award a win. Wilds aid in creating these wins by substituting all base game symbols.
Players are given agency over these wilds via the returning popular HyperBet option. This allows players to increase the size of their stake to directly impact the value of the multiplier attached to these wilds and simultaneously increases the number of spins awarded in the free spins round.
The Hold and Win Blitz mode is triggered for landing one instant cash symbol across reels two to five. This will award the player three spins with the chance to land an additional instant cash prize and retrigger the blitz mode feature. Landing 20 or more Blitz symbols in total will begin to incrementally increase the player’s position on a cashpot ladder which can award prizes up to 10,000x the player’s bet size.
Having an instant cash prize land on every position on a reel whilst Blitz mode is active will award that reel’s cumulative prize, which is expanded upon in the free spins round. Awarded by landing at least three scatters in the base game, players will unlock spins previously decided upon via their HyperBet level. During the bonus, Blitz Mode is active throughout the free spins, increasing win potential.
By integrating a Hold and Win Blitz mode feature that can last numerous rounds and provide an escalation of prizes, Hyper Blitz Hold And Win positions player retention at its heart. This is also evident in other recent Kalamba titles including Flaming Scarabs, Heimdall’s Gate and MegawaysTM Bushido Princess.
Alex Cohen, COO and Co-Founder of Kalamba Games, said:: “Hyper Blitz Hold And Win is a combination of different elements that we have perfected at Kalamba Games. The title presents retro-inspired aesthetics alongside innovative mechanics to create a slot with transformative mass-market appeal.
“The focus on retention-based mechanics will also prove to be a hit for our operator partners alongside players with the Blitz mode promoting play to reveal even more prizes.”
