October 12, 2023 – Prepare for a Halloween season like no other, as Inspired Entertainment, Inc. (“Inspired” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: INSE) launches the highly anticipated Big Scary Fortune™ slot in UK retail. This captivating Halloween-themed slot is set to take players on a chilling adventure, featuring a 5×3 reel layout, 10 win-lines, and an exhilarating bonus that offers the chance to revel in unlimited Free Spins.
In Big Scary Fortune players can expect chills and thrills around every corner. Matching 3-5 symbols along a win-line awards a win and the fun doesn’t stop there – the pumpkin symbols offer additional rewards through mixed pays. These symbols award wins regardless of the combination, with 5 pumpkins awarding £20, 4 pumpkins granting £5, and 3 pumpkins delivering £1 in rewards. The scarecrow, represented as the Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the bonus symbol.
Players should keep an eye out for the bonus symbol landing on any reel, as 3 or more of these symbols will trigger the coveted Big Scary Bonus. Before diving into the bonus round, players will engage in a match 3 game. The number of bonus symbols that triggered the bonus determines the number of tiles presented – 12 tiles for 3 bonus symbols, 9 tiles for 4 bonus symbols, and 6 tiles for 5 bonus symbols.
Matching 3 tiles will unveil the Big Winner Value, setting the stage for unlimited Free Spins during the Big Scary Bonus until the Big Winner Value is awarded. Stay alert during the bonus for the scarecrow and the pumpkin symbols. The values displayed on the pumpkins will be paid out, and if multiple scarecrows appear, each pumpkin’s value will be awarded again for every extra scarecrow in view.
If all 15 positions are locked with the Big Winner, the value shown on all pumpkins are collected and the bonus ends.
The impressive online achievements of Big Scary Fortune served as a driving force behind its transformation into a UK B3 game, aligning perfectly with Inspired’s omni-channel strategy of delivering diverse and engaging content to customers. As a Big Bonus style game, Big Scary Fortune features Inspired’s groundbreaking Free Spins mechanic, introduced in August 2020, and has rapidly garnered a dedicated community of enthusiastic and engaged players.
Richard Terry, UK Product Director, said, “We are delighted to be launching another seasonal title to our B3 retail estates. Big Scary Fortune is testament to Inspired’s proven seasonal content pipeline with the exciting ‘Big Fortune’ feature that has become a player favourite since release in 2020. Now, players can enjoy their favourite game, with an exciting unlimited free spins bonus, and innovative gamble to feature functionality all with a spooky twist!
Big Scary Fortune promises a Halloween gaming experience like no other, where the thrills are high, and the rewards are even higher.
