Wednesday April 8,2015 : NEW MOBILE SLOT FROM TOUCHSTONE GAMES
Lucky Gems launches through Odobo Marketplace.
Touchstone Games has launched Lucky Gems, its first HTML5 mobile title via the Odobo Marketplace facility.
The game is a real-money arcade game styled on Pachinko, and fires 12 balls, one after another, from the right of the board. These cascade down, ricocheting on pins to land at random in pockets either at the top or along the bottom of the board.
The aim is for multiple balls to land in allocated “high-value” pockets for big wins, and to accumulate additional bonus balls for more chances to win the top cash prizes.
Pachinko originated in Japan and is still widely played, with over 12,500 pachinko halls spread throughout Japan. The game grew in popularity in the 1940s and is thought to originate from the French game Bagatelle, with both arcade and gambling variants.
Touchstone’s adaptation has a gem-themed pay table with added features including the addition of up to 50 multiballs that can be triggered at random. A gamble option is available on all wins, with players able to wager all or half their winnings for the chance to win up to four times their original cash prize.
Julian Mudd from Touchstone Games, said: “We chose to bring this title to an international audience in HTML5 to cater for players across all devices. We’re pleased at the interest shown by operators and are happy to announce that it will soon be live with Betfair and Gala Coral.”
