Playtech has extended its content agreement with Rank Group’s Mecca Bingo and added three more titles to Mecca Max handheld tablets, currently available in 87 UK bingo clubs.

The addition of Playtech's Fortunate 5, Bounty and the Beanstalk titles and the branded Who Wants to be a Millionaire game follows the launch of the supplier’s Heart of the Jungle and Adventures in Wonderland slot games last August.

The games will be made available on 12,000 Mecca Max handheld tablets in 87 bingo clubs across the UK.

Fortunate 5 is a pirate adventure on the high seas in which players search for hidden treasure. The game centres on a fearsome band of five outlaws; Peg Leg Davis, Monsieur Poisson, Mad Dog McDougall, Starboard Mary and Captain Redbeard. Each character has a different cash bounty to their name and a five-of-a-kind on any one of them pays out a cash prize.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is based on the TV programme of the same name which aired in more than 160 countries. It includes all the show’s well-known symbols and features, such as 50:50, phone a friend and ask the audience.

The deal will also see a series of further titles added later this year.

“The addition of a further two highly popular Playtech titles is a real endorsement of our omni-channel games and their success across all channels including the Mecca Max handheld,” said Lee Harford, head of retail content at Playtech

“We have a great relationship with Mecca and are delighted with the impact our titles have had across all their channels in retail, online, mobile and the handheld devices.”

Rod Runnalls, head of slots projects for Mecca Bingo, added: “This strategically important project has gone from strength-to-strength since it began last year. We can now provide a fantastic breadth and quality of content to our players who have really taken to the new games on the Mecca Max handhelds.”
