Scientific Games Interactive Brings Fantasy to Reality with Sword of Destiny

LAS VEGAS and CHICAGO – October 25, 2017 – SG Interactive’s Sword of Destiny™ introduces epic fantasy to the online gaming space. Bringing the magic aesthetic of the land-based original to online gaming, Sword of Destiny ushers players into a world of dynamic bonus rounds and remarkable visuals. Based on popular card games and role-playing games, Sword of Destiny is made to appeal to a fan-base familiar with epic online fantasy games.
 
Sword of Destiny is packed with engaging features and bonus games. The reel array varies between 5x3 and 5x5; during the base game, the reels randomly expand upwards, adding two additional rows and 25 new pay lines. This also launches one of three features: Clumped Wilds, Random Wilds, or Symbol Upgrade. Each enhances the possibility for big wins and injects the reels with eye-catching art and animation.
 
Tom Wood, VP and Chief Product Officer, B2B for SG Interactive said, “Sword of Destiny was unique as a land-based title for Scientific Games, and we’re excited to bring it to the real money online space. This game stands out as a premiere portrait mode title that captures the aura of a high fantasy world and is unlike anything we currently have in our portfolio.”
 
Two bonus games highlight the Sword of Destiny experience and make full use of the game’s portrait orientation. The Free Games Bonus, triggered by three scattered X-Zone™ symbols, applies a multiplier to each winning combination. Different multipliers can apply to new winning combinations, maximizing anticipatory gameplay.
 
The Temple Tower Jackpot feature ignites when three scattered bonus symbols land on reels one, three, and five. A ladder with 16 steps appears on screen, containing credit prizes and static jackpots. Players pick three stones, each of which awards between one and six steps up the ladder. When no more picks remain, the prize on the highest step the player reached is awarded. The Temple Tower offers a riveting and satisfying mechanic that expands the scope of the game world and introduces the possibility of huge wins.
 
Sword of Destiny brings a fully featured land-based theme to the online space with a high fantasy look and feel, amazing bonus rounds, and riveting features. The title launches with online operators in October 2017.
