The idea behind the new event-based release is to give players a much more satisfying user experience while offering features that stand central to the user. This according to EGT Interactive product manager Mirela Agatonovic.
Creating the perfect user-centric Keno game is all about making a game that closely mimics the reality and excitement of a real-time game, explained Agatonovic. For Keno in particular, this means a 30-second draw time.
Keno NZ players get to play the game with anything between 1 and 10 numbers – with payouts based on the total amount of numbers utilised during any given game-round.
Burning Keno Features
Of the actual design process, Agatonovic says the biggest challenge was to create even better features than those typically present in a game of classic Keno. She says she firmly believes the overall user-experience to be completely in line with how the real the feel of the game happens to be.
EGT’s Burning Keno includes an instant re-bet function, ticket-sorting in real time, quick access to so-called “hot” and “cold” numbers, and the unique ability to play using more than 7 numbers at a time. The last-mentioned is according to Agatonovic, the latest big release’s premium feature.
What sets Burning Keno completely apart from anything other Keno NZ game the company has released, is that its EGT’s very first deviation from online pokies. Being a Lottery-style game, the latest title is something completely new for the company.
Something New For EGT
Burning Keno is being launched globally across player markets with a tradition of Lottery-style games, said Agatonovic on the question of where first the title would be launched. The idea is then to extend the offering also to other markets – based on reception.
Agatonovic furthermore said the latest Keno NZ title is the result of a many a lesson learnt in the world of online pokies. With those lessons all applied to the game at the time of its making, online casino players can now look forward to a premium title created from experience.
The intention is for Burning Keno to help operators reach all-new audiences. And according to Agatonovic, in the case of Burning Keno, this will also mean an increased player retention rate.
