Slots and table games developer Habanero has launched its latest slot Gold Rush, based on the drive to mine gold in the US in the 19th century, while at the same time signing up Isle of Man licensee Fun88 as its newest client.

The cross platform 5x3-reel, 25 fixed-line video slot takes players back to the time of prospectors and precious metals, with users rewarded with high-paying free spins and a special collapsing mine feature.

Habanero head of game development Chris Visser said that the low-to-medium volatility game will appeal to players across a range of markets.

“Designed in HTML5 in order to provide seamless gameplay across multiple devices, Gold Rush provides a perfect combination of old-time slot excitement and modern features,” he said.

The game is the latest addition to the supplier’s portfolio of more than 50 slots, six table games and 10 video poker titles, which have been integrated into more than 20 operators’ sites.

Among the latest sign-ups is Fun88, which will take delivery of Habanero’s products via an agreement with live dealer casino provider Gold Deluxe, with the supplier's full portfolio of games to go live on the Asia-facing operator’s multi-language sites.

Founded in 2008, Fun88 is owned by the holding company Welton Holdings Ltd and has served as the official gaming partner of English football clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley FC.

“We’re very excited by the opportunity to supply our games to one of the Asia’s leading operators,” Habanero chief executive Nic Ioannov said. “The deal is a glowing endorsement of our ability to tailor content not only to individual customers but to specific markets too.

“I firmly believe that Asia will continue to be one of the key growth areas for operators and suppliers alike in the next 12 months. In signing deals with operators like Fun88 we are well-positioned to use our experience there to capitalise.”

Fun88 director Nathan Walker added: “We are pleased to add Habanero’s games to our portfolio as we constantly seek to grow and enrich our gaming content for our players. We are also very much looking forward to their new games, which are being developed in HTML5, and will be perfect for the mobile devices of our customers."
