INSPIRED LAUNCHES LEGENDARY VIDEO GAME, SPACE INVADERS, AS AN ONLINE & MOBILE SLOT GAME
13 December 2021 – Inspired Entertainment, Inc. (“Inspired”) (NASDAQ: INSE) is pleased to announce the launch of TAITO’s legendary video game Space Invaders online and mobile slot, which will take players on a thrilling and nostalgic iGaming journey.
In keeping with Space Invaders’ much-loved original design, Inspired’s slot adaptation will get players’ pulses racing for a chance to win big! With a reel configuration of 5×3 and 20-win lines, Space Invaders and its unique mechanics and vibrant graphics bring the joy of retro gaming to this decade.
The game’s UFO and Cannon reel modifiers can appear at random and award one of five additional reel-enhancing modifiers, including the Wild Cannon, Monster Wild, 5 Of A Kind, Mega Reel and Bonus Boost. Three or more bonus coin scatters anywhere in view award players one of six bonus rounds: Shoot Out, UFO Climber, Wild Cannon, Monster Wild, Mega Reel and Space Invaders. The game’s Bonus Gamble mechanic offers players a chance to play a higher bonus in the trail or win a mystery cash prize.
Steve Collett, Chief Product Officer at Inspired, said: “Launched in the late seventies, Space Invaders was a pioneer in the video game industry, inspiring numerous game designs across an array of genres. Despite its maturity, it is still one of the most recognisable gaming brands of all time. We are thrilled to bring this retro classic back to players with novel features including reel-enhancing modifiers, six exhilarating bonus rounds and a Bonus Gamble mechanic. Space Invaders is set to become a memorable and player favourite slot game this season, and beyond.”
