Red Rake’s latest offering is a hit
Red Rake Gaming’s latest game, 777 Heist, uses its trademark intricate detail to create the main character, the art museum, the Mona Lisa painting and other artwork, camera lenses, and symbols on its reels.
Casino Aus reports that less than a week at the top Aussie online casinos and 777 Heist is already one of the most popular games.
The realistic animation and constantly rotating features keep players interested from the start and wanting to play more and more.
Red Rake released the game worldwide on March 26.
Players familiar with the gaming company were immediately drawn to the game for features they’ve experienced in other games by this developer.
The Cascading Reels is well-known for its appearances in Asp of Cleopatra, Viva Las Vegas and Twin Harlequin, to name a few.
There are many new features in 777 Heist though.
From hacking to using a harness or a smoke bomb, this thief has many weapons in his arsenal.
The 5×5 slot has a theoretical return to player of 95.37 per cent.
It is a high variance video slot.
While playing the game, the background is the museum at night, with various pieces of art in the dark hallway.
The darkness is broken by red laser beams, those which might be used by a museum to detect movement…like that of a thief.
The music is right out of a high-action drama about a bank robbery, intense and captivating, bringing the player into the game.
As for betting, the minimum allowed is $0.20.
The thief has several skills to use during regular game playing and they happen randomly after a winless spin.
Hacking, with one of the symbols on the board replaced by another harness where the thief hangs from a harness and adds two Wild symbols to the reels and smoke bomb with two symbols, chosen randomly, disappearing when the bomb explodes.
The goal is to win each of the symbols to fill the metre, which is the lens to the bottom left of the reels.
Three symbols fill one third of the metre, four symbols fill two thirds of the metre and five symbols fill it entirely.
This triggers a special spin, during which the thief uses all three special skills, first the hacking, then harness and finally smoke bomb.
If those actions lead to the erasure of all symbols from the board except the Wild, a free spin feature launches.
There will be six free spins, but filling the accumulator awards additional spins.
If the player can clear all the symbols during the bonus round, the player wins 100x the bet.
Red Rake expands into Portugal
Red Rake Gaming announced in July that it inked a content supply deal with Casino Portugal to grow its Portuguese footprint even further.
Casino News Daily reported that under the terms of the recently penned agreement, Red Rake Gaming will roll out its top performing online slots, including Super 12 Stars, Mystic Mirror, Knights, and The Asp of Cleopatra with Casino Portugal, one of the operators licenced to provide online gambling services in the Portuguese iGaming market.
Commenting on their latest supply deal, Nick Barr, Managing Director of Red Rake Gaming’s Malta operation, said that they consider their partnership with Casino Portugal “an exciting and important collaboration” as it would enable them to continue to expand their reach in the Portuguese market.
Mr Barr added that his company has seen “some very encouraging results from our games” since entering Portugal’s regulated online gaming space.
According to the Red Rake Gaming official, their work with Casino Portugal will prove to be a “fruitful partnership” for both the online gaming supplier and the gambling operator.
Casino Portugal’s Co-CEO, Antonio Laranjo, added that their operation is looking to consolidate its offering with recognized suppliers and “Red Rake’s portfolio is aligned with our goal of giving players access to some of the most innovative games around.”
The recently agreed partnership with Casino Portugal came in line with Red Rake Gaming’s strategy to grow its footprint in the Portuguese gambling market.
The company first entered the local gaming space earlier this year through a partnership with locally licensed operator Bet.pt.
Red Rake Gaming will also see its content go live with one more major Portugal-facing operator. Late last month, the gaming supplier announced that it has penned a deal with French gambling group Betclic.
Among other regulated markets, the operator also boasts a strong presence in Portugal, which will certainly help Red Rake Gaming extend the footprint of its online slots in that particular regulated jurisdiction.
The provider’s Portuguese ambition is part of its larger strategy to focus on expanding in major regulated markets.
To deliver on that strategy, Red Rake Gaming recently applied for and was granted a B2B license by the Malta Gaming Authority.
