Isle of Man-based casino software developer Red Tiger Gaming has launched a new Euro 2016-themed jackpot slot game with Paddy Power Betfair.
In Deadline Jackpots, each progressive jackpot is linked to an evening football match with odds of winning the progressive jackpot increasing as the match progresses.
Towards the end of each match, the Euro jackpot turns 'hot' with payout guaranteed by the end of the game.
The jackpots complement the existing progressive jackpot innovations on Red Tiger's exclusive 'Macau' tab on Betfair, also soon to be rolled out on the Paddy Power brand. The supplier also has a number of slots, including Lucky Wizard and Winter Wonders, on Betfair's Arcade tab.
"We're delighted to have worked with Betfair to deliver this innovative jackpot feature for the Euro 2016 tournament and beyond,” said Giles Potter, commercial director at Red Tiger Gaming.
“We knew from the success of our ceiling jackpots on Betfair's Macau tab (guaranteed payout before the progressive jackpot reaches its target) how the building excitement of an imminent payout always drives slots play; with the Euro 2016 jackpots we have taken the format a step further.
“These new deadline jackpots are just the latest in our ever growing stable of profit-boosting retention and engagement tools available to our clients."
Mike Phelan, head of eGaming marketing at Paddy Power Betfair commented: “From the outset we've been really impressed with Red Tiger's innovative approach to creating slots that amass huge player appeal.
“We are especially pleased with these new jackpots as they developed them at very short notice and they've had a huge impact on the volume through the Red Tiger games at a time when punters are usually more focused on watching the match.
“We are proud to be first to market with another unique gaming innovation from Red Tiger and look forward to the forthcoming release of their powerful new Smart Spins bonusing application."
