Playtech launches Space Hunter™: the first certified shooter game for the UK market

06/24/2021 | 05:21am EDT

London, 24 June 2021 - Playtech, the world's leading gambling technology company, has announced the launch of the new Shoot for Cash series - the first certified Casino shooter game for the UK market, created by their content studio Origins.

Beginning with Space Hunter™, the Shoot for Cash series takes retro arcade-style gameplay and brings it to the world of Casino play, adding a new spin to a classic format. As the first game of its kind to be certified for the UK market, Space Hunter™: Shoot for Cash represents a major opportunity to appeal to fans of arcade classics.

In the game, players control power cannons, shooting spaceships for wins and the bigger the ship, the higher the payout. In the Free Shots mode, cannons vary in power level, increasing the potential for a successful hit, while the Supernova Explosion feature destroys all ships in the surrounding area for a major win boost.

Eran Gilboa, Head of Content Unit at Playtech, said: 'We're very excited by the potential of Space Hunter™ and the Shoot for Cash series. For over 40 years, arcade shooters have been a huge favourite with gamers, and bringing this style of gameplay to slots offers something genuinely fresh in regulated Casino markets.

'The Shoot for Cash concept and gameplay mechanics have been carefully designed, underlining Playtech's continued commitment to delivering the best entertainment-led experience to key strategic audiences across regulated markets.'

Amir Levy, Producer of the Game at Origins (a Playtech studio), comments: 'Space Hunter™ and the wider Shoot for Cash format is unlike anything we've produced before. It's been a major project for Origins studio to create such an innovative format and the result is a massively entertaining title that we are confident will be enjoyed by all kinds of players; slots fans and gamers alike. We are proud to deliver a truly original game to audiences in regulated markets worldwide.'

Nolan Frendo, Casino Games Manager at Betvictor, adds: 'Shoot for Cash is an inventive and highly engaging format, and we're delighted to have had the opportunity to launch Space Hunter™ for an exclusive period. The player reaction so far has been fantastic, with all the signs being that both Space Hunter™ and the wider Shoot for Cash concept have what it takes to be long-term favourites.'

Space Hunter™: Shoot for Cash is available network-wide now.
