Betsoft Gaming has announced the launch of a brand-new series of three games which has been specifically designed to appeal to online casino players in the Asian market. The first game in the series, which is being referred to as the Red Dragon Suite, is called Bamboo Rush, and subsequent titles that are scheduled for release later this year are Caishen’s Arrival and Dragon & Phoenix.
About Betsoft Gaming
Betsoft Gaming was founded in 2006 and has since become a leading developer of online casino games with its titles enjoying popularity across both Europe and the Americas. The games created by the company can also be played in Asia, but Betsoft hasn’t really focused to any great degree on developing titles specifically for the Asian market until now. Being one of the most populous parts of the world, it made perfect sense for Betsoft to address that point, and creating games that will particularly appeal to players in Asia is a logical way to do just that.
There is no real difference in what online casino players enjoy in terms of actual game mechanics, of course, but there are regional variations in the kind of themes and styles of presentation that are preferred. The Red Dragon Suite of games has therefore been developed to attract the attention of players throughout the Asian online gambling marketplace, and because Asian culture is also very popular with players in the rest of the world, the new trio of titles should prove just as popular elsewhere.
Bamboo Rush is the title which launces the Red Dragon Suite, and it is a worthy game to take that honour. This slot has five reels, four rows, forty pay lines and an authentic natural theme which focuses on the life of a giant panda. The background artwork is superb, and depicts a tranquil environment where the bamboo plants grow tall, making it the perfect place for the giant panda to spend most of its time.
The backdrop is presented in soft focus for much of the game so that the five reels stand out more clearly. The symbols occupying those reels include the generic playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, golden coins, a Bamboo Rush logo, a lotus flower, a temple, a Yin-Yang symbol and the giant panda who takes centre stage. Other symbols used in the game include a golden panda scatter and a green bamboo wild. All symbols are stacked (except for the scatter) and are beautifully illustrated. The artists involved have clearly worked hard to make them look as realistic as possible rather than adopt a more humorous cartoon-style.
Modern slot developers pay as much attention to audio as they do to the visual content, and that is certainly the case here. A soundtrack of soothing Asian music plays in the background as you spin the reels, and the sound effects used to indicate special events blend into the overall theme very nicely.
Double Up Feature
Every win in the main game triggers a Double Up feature which gives you the opportunity to risk half or all of your winnings in an effort to double the gambled sum. You can obviously turn down this opportunity if you wish, but if you accept it you need only to predict whether a golden coin will show heads or tails when it is tossed. Choose correctly and you will double whatever amount you chose to risk.
Golden Panda Free Spins
The star feature in this game is the free spins round, which is triggered by getting three or more golden panda symbols on the reels at the same time. You can win as many as 20 free spins here, and if that isn’t enough to get you excited, all wild symbols in this part of the game will award a multiplier value of either x2 or x3. Should you get more than one multiplying wild on a payline, they will multiply each other, so three x2 symbols would multiply your win by x8, whilst three x3 symbols would multiply your win by x27.
Highlight of the Year
‘Our Red Dragon series of Asia-themed games is one of the highlights of our 2019 content calendar with three slots that will take players breath away from the very first spin,’ said Annamaria Anastasi, who is Marketing Director at Betsoft Gaming. ‘Packed with mind blowing features this trio of games, including latest title Bamboo Rush, will bring one of our most successful years as a business to a close, as well as continue that strong momentum into 2020 where we plan to continue to take the market by storm.’
A Great Series Opener
Bamboo Rush is a great opener for the Red Dragon Suite of games, and well worth playing. Look out for it when playing at your favourite Betsoft venues and see for yourself!
