Virtual sports and gaming machine supplier Inspired Gaming Group has announced the launch of its Jungle Bucks game across the company’s video lottery terminal (VLT) platform in Italy.

Now available to players across Italy, the jungle-themed Free Spins Bonus slot game features an Ostrich Race Bonus to determine the number of free spins and multiplier. Recurring characters such as the Rampant Rhino appear at random to add an extra dynamic to game-play and give more exciting wins.

Approved by both the Società Generale d'Informatica and the Amministrazione Autonomadei Monopoli di Stado, the company said that the game has proved popular in markets worldwide, from Latin America to Norway.

“Inspired is thrilled to announce the addition of Jungle Bucks to its multi-game VLT library,” said Vitaliano Casalone, president of Inspired Italy. “We pride ourselves on developing some of the most engaging and popular games on the market, which drive incremental revenue for Italian concessionaries.

“Given the extraordinary response Jungle Bucks has received from other countries, we are confident that it will be a hit with Italian players.”

Inspired is one of the top three VLT suppliers in the Italian market, with over 6,000 VLTs live, and agreements with the country’s biggest operators including Lottomatica, SISAL, and HBG, with Cogetech also expected to go live in the near future.
