What sets Midnight Marauder apart from this quarter’s game releases?
At Relax, no two games are the same, we like to vary our mechanics as much as possible. Many suppliers in the business tend to find a formula that works and stick to it, but if we want to differentiate we need to ensure that our product is varied enough for players to want to return to and create anticipation for our new releases. With regards to Midnight Marauder, we aimed to produce a game that players will understand effortlessly and make the winning potential feel obtainable. In terms of what sets it apart, I would say the actual mechanic is rather unique and not something we’ve played before.
The payout mechanic looks interesting! Can you tell us more about this collect and multiply mechanic?
Thank you! As big cluster-game fans, the building of this mechanic has been going on behind-the-scenes for quite some time. Generally, we felt that the cluster mechanics rely too much on progressive multipliers, so with our game, we wanted to achieve the same levels of wins but chose to tie the compounding multipliers to the wins instead. We think players will already be familiar with this type of mechanic as some other games apply it to wilds, but we haven’t seen it done with all symbols before, so we’re excited to see how our players respond.
What is happening in the bonus round to separate it from the base game?
What’s great about Midnight Marauder is that the Base Game is already so entertaining that players won’t be looking to the Bonus Round for the real fun to begin. We chose to amp up the reel sets, add free spins, and after testing out a variety of features, we felt that the core mechanic was undeniably the most fun and best fit for the Bonus Round.
The soundtrack and visual style are playful and mischievous, was the theme inspired by something specific? Have any of the elements been borrowed from other games?
Thank you once again and yes, the theme was loosely inspired by a famous jewellery store heist that took place in 2015, but as always, we wanted to give it our own flavour. We applied comedic elements to keep the mood light and fun, a perfect match to the high volatility game experience.
Can you tell us anything about the math that will get players excited to give this a spin?
I think it’s the attainable win potential that will really get players enticed in Midnight Marauder. The math and the mechanic work to pay out frequently and fairly. We capped the maximum win at 30,000x bet but it would have otherwise been 77million x bet! During simulations we’ve reached up to seven absorbed collections of the same symbol, so we’re confident this game will go down a treat.
Midnight Marauder is a new casino slot from Relax Gaming where we follow a skilled bank robber during his latest heist. We follow down into the vault, where gigantic riches await the lucky visitor.
