HungryBear Gaming, the UK and Canada based game design and development studio, has struck a landmark deal with Blueprint Gaming to further enhance the innovative Slot Masters tournament experience with the use of the industry heavyweight’s IP and games portfolio.
As part of the agreement, HungryBear will develop bespoke and unique free to play Slot Masters games inspired by some of Blueprint’s top-performing titles and distributed to operators across the UK and Europe.
The partnership opens the door for the popular Slot Masters tournament to be enjoyed by a new audience familiar with Blueprint’s wide catalogue of games, as well as extending the marketing reach of the studio’s impressive and globally recognised portfolio of slots.
Slot Masters has already taken the industry by storm thanks to its unique and intuitive gameplay. Players go head-to-head in the multiplayer, free to play format, during which they can impact the outcome of their opponents’ score by strategically deploying a selection of attack and defensive weapons.
Justin Chamberlain, CEO of HungryBear, said: “We are over the moon to be partnering with the UK’s leading supplier of slots content. The partnership with Blueprint allows us to further enhance and improve the Slot Masters experience by offering players the opportunity to play the world’s leading multiplayer game with the legendary and industry leading content and IP that Blueprint own.
“Huge titles such as Fishin’ Frenzy, King Kong Cash, Luck O’ The Irish, Wish Upon a Jackpot and more will all be utilised by HungryBear to create incredible and unique Slot Masters games for our customers and players to enjoy.”
Matt Cole, Managing Director of Blueprint Gaming, said: “We are constantly exploring ways of taking our popular content in exciting new directions through new concepts and mechanics.
“HungryBear’s Slot Masters format is a truly innovative free to play tournament which is already proving to resonate with a wide audience of players. Through this first-of-its-kind partnership, we are combining the best of Blueprint and HungryBear to offer operators a unique marketing proposition.”
