Light & Wonder Monday announced the release of Wonder 500, a series of igaming titles that will be rolled out exclusively with U.K.-based operator Sky Betting & Gaming.
Wonder 500 was created by the Las Vegas-based gaming provider’s in-house development team based on feedback from operators, changes-in-play behavior, and the forthcoming reduction in maximum online staking levels in the U.K. The titles to be released through Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming platform include Mighty Black Knight, Spartacus, and Rod & Annette Go Fishing
“With an ever-changing UK igaming landscape, operators are facing a different environment that is packed with shifting player dynamics, new regulatory focuses, and fresh challenges,” said Light & Wonder Vice President of Game Development Rob Procter in a statement. “At Light & Wonder, we continually innovate our igaming content and products to engage players, whilst keeping responsible gaming at heart.”
The Wonder 500 series provides players with a £2 maximum stake level with a maximum win of 500x. The stake also provides a frequent bonus hit rate and combines proven mechanics and themes.
“Having worked with Light & Wonder for many years, we’ve seen how they create products with the player at the front and center of the development process and that fit with our strategy for the UK market,” said Sky Betting & Gaming Head of Content Eamon Beardsley. “We have a major Wonder 500 promotional campaign in place to support our exclusive launch and are fully behind the series, believing that it offers players a superb gaming experience.”
