Next week will be an exciting one indeed for those slot players who are craving a new experience: Betsoft will release its much-anticipated Max Quest: Wrath of Ra, a multiplayer RNG-based game which replaces the traditional slot reels and symbols with an “interactive all-action shooting experience”. And all of this will take place in the awe-inspiring setting of Ancient Egypt and its ‘cursed’ tombs!
Although Max Quest’s underlying mechanism is the same as the one found behind all online slots, i.e. an RNG that randomizes all outcomes, Max Quest: Wrath of Ra doesn’t look like a slot game at all. In fact, it’s more similar to an arcade game, and instead of a spin button, there will be a weapon, which you will be able to move in different directions to shoot at targets. Every bullet players fired will constitute a wager, and it’s up to the RNG to determine whether this bullet will defeat the enemy or not, so that at the end of the day, there is no skill involved while playing Max Quest. Targets will range from scarab beetles that you’ll see scuttling across the screen, to mummies and the risen spirits of pharaohs. Players can choose to play Max Quest as a single-player or as a multiplayer game game, where up to 6 players will be shooting at the same enemies!
If you play Max Quest, you'll also benefit from other excitiing forms of gamification, including the unlocking of special weapons, level progression and boss fights. Each time players manage to defeat an enemy in MaxQuest, they will also collect experience points, which will help them advance and improve their ranking on the Tournament leaderboard. Leaderboard prizes will then be paid out according to the schedule decided by each individual casino operator, and the prizes will result from players’ wagers – in fact, each wager will contribute 2% towards the prize pool. This means that leaderboard prizes will be different according to where you play Max Quest: Wrath of Ra.
As Annamaria Anastasi, Betsoft’s Marketing Director has put it, “By blending the best of RNG gaming, videogaming, and social games, we set out to create a new kind of game – one with genuine crossover appeal, advanced, sticky social features, and a deep, enduring sense of player progression. […] from its high-octane gameplay to its console-grade graphics and animations, Max Quest is ready to redefine what casino gaming can be - by capturing and holding the attention of both traditional slots players and all-new demographics”.
We also have high expectations for this new game, which should provide a refreshing break from the usual reeled slots and pave the way for a new trend in RNG gaming. Check out our review of Max Quest for more info on how and where to play it!
