With the surface details taken care of, we spoke to Game Producer Abhishek Singh to find out a little bit more about Cup Glory…
Where did the initial inspiration come from for Cup Glory?
"We created a very successful game called Ice Ice Hockey, which was a big hit with players.
"The idea was to recreate that magic with another sports-themed game with improved mechanics. We decided to choose the most popular sport in the world, football!"
How important is it to have women be the focal point of a football-themed slot?
"Cup Glory will be launched just in time for an eventful sporting summer that will see the world’s largest women’s football tournament take place. With women’s football becoming ever more popular, releasing a female-focused, football-themed slot was of vital importance to us."
Which features should players get excited about in Cup Glory?
"Cup Glory comes with a whole host of exciting game rounds. Shooting Wilds feature within the base game, where footballs can be shot onto the reels randomly on any given spin.
"These Wilds can also come equipped with multipliers of up to 5x and combining if they are part of the same winning payline for boosted wins. Free Spins also feature in Cup Glory, where any Shooting Wilds that appear during the round become sticky, and if a Wild lands on top of another during a subsequent spin, their multipliers are combined for a huge winning potential!"
Are there any benefits/challenges to designing a sport-themed slot compared to other genres?
"People are connected to sport in one way or another, people who play sports, people who watch sports, people who attend sporting events, and people that bet on sports! This makes these types of games very appealing to our audience. The challenge is making sure it’s a big hit!"
Do Wizard Games have any other sport-related slots on the horizon?
"We are constantly working hard to create games to suit everyone and have many exciting games in the pipeline for the rest of 2023 and beyond!"
