Old Skool Studios, a games developer based in Vancouver and a Microgaming and RNG Foundry development partner, has announced the launch of Jewel Quest Riches, its third Quickfire title, and first branded slot game.
Jewel Quest Riches brings iWin’s timeless Jewel Quest franchise exclusively to Quickfire, powered by Microgaming, the company announced in a press release Wednesday. The game appeals to players who enjoy casual puzzle games, rewarding strategy with mystery, progression, prizes and achievements.
Played on 5×5 reels, it offers cascading jewels with Increasing Multipliers – up to 12X for every spin. The skill-based Jewel Quest Bonus takes players on a mythical journey across 8 replayable exotic worlds with 3-star achievements.
Every bonus level offers different Match-3 puzzles with a local progressive jackpot, immersive music and quality visuals. Up to 12 bonus moves are awarded, with players using skill and strategy to solve puzzles and earn prizes. Hidden relics are collected with big matches and are chosen in a final mini-game to earn a Mystery Multiplier.
Mike McGraw, executive producer of Old Skool Studios, said: “Jewel Quest Riches is our third game released on Quickfire and our first branded title. This casual game represents many months of planning, design and development, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the iWin partnership.”
Andrew Hollis, games manager for Quickfire at Microgaming, says: “It’s great to be working with Old Skool Studios and to be able to exclusively offer Jewel Quest to our Quickfire operators. Since its launch last Jewel Quest has performed very well for the operators that have taken it live.”
C.J. Wolf, CEO of iWin, said that although Jewel Quest has been accessible on many platforms, this is the first iteration of the game as a real money slot game.
“This game highlights all of the features that made Jewel Quest a worldwide phenomenon,” he said.
