Respected iGaming developer Play’n GO have certainly been making an effort to bolster their portfolio of online pokies and other games. It was not long ago that the company debuted its remarkably minimalist, yet deeply engaging Holiday Spirits game, helping players get into the Christmas spirit early. Now, just a week later, the studio has dropped 2 more games, both equally as engaging.
The first is a new online pokie called Rise of Athena, and the other Viking Runecraft Bingo. Interestingly enough, both are based around mythological figures, and both have had an immense amount of effort put into their overall visual style. But in regards to gameplay, the new releases couldn’t be more different.
Needless to say, both also certainly deserve a look.
Focus On Narrative
Accompanying the games, a Play’n Go spokesperson offered some elaboration. The spokesperson stressed that the company always aims to insert a compelling amount of narrative into their titles, and with Rise of Athena and Viking Runecraft Bingo the approach had been no different. The design teams had, once again, focused on telling unique and interesting stories, the spokesperson explained, and the results of the hard work are clear to see in the latest online pokie and Bingo title.
Looking more closely at Rise of Athena, the online pokie takes its inspiration from the relatively well-known Greek goddess of wisdom and war. Those familiar with her stories will spot her likeness on the reels, as well as Pegasus, the winged horse, and Glaukopis, the owl.
Each of the characters has been brought to life with remarkable detail, though, the average player will likely be far more interested in the possible 5,000x the original wager maximum payout.
Bingo With A Difference
In regards to Viking Runecraft Bingo, attention is turned to Norse mythology. Athena and her winged horse are replaced by Thor, Odin, and Frey, with equally as impressive results. The characters are once again given the respect they deserve, with outstanding artwork bringing the fantastical Norse mythology world into stunning focus. As far as iGaming goes, these are graphics that are a cut above the rest.
But interestingly enough, Viking Runecraft Bingo is Bingo, but with a few online pokie sensibilities thrown in, giving birth to something both extremely unique, and immensely creative.
Whichever of these new creations from Play’n GO are preferred remains to be seen, but all are now ready to be experienced first-hand online and on mobile at top Kiwi casinos.
