Live 5 has reworked top performing William Hill retail slot, Sheba, into an online game designed specifically for desktop and mobile players that will launch exclusively with William Hill online before hitting the wider market on 6 September.
Sheba is a simple, classic ten-line video slot that give players the chance to win royal treasure from the Queen of Sheba herself. They are helped in their quest for riches by three features; Expanding Wilds, Sticky Expanding Wild Free Spins and Super Spins.
Free Spins are triggered when you get 3, 4 or 5 Scatter Symbols with 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins awarded. Any Wilds that land will expand and stick in place for the duration of Free Spins. Every Scatter that lands will add 2 extra Free Spins.
Super Spins is a high stakes game mode in which four spins are played sequentially on four separate reel sets. If a Wild lands it will expand and transfer to the remaining reels and it will also have a 2x Multiplier, which will increase by 1x on each transferred wild.
As a buy-in mode feature, Super Spins is subject to availability dependant on region.
Sheba benefits from the same cinematic production quality of other Live 5 slot games, which has seen the studio earn an unrivalled reputation for designing and developing superior games. This includes striking graphics and authentic sound.
The integration with William Hill has been facilitated by SG Digital, which will also deliver Sheba to other operators in markets around the world once the game goes out on general release. Sheba has been certified in the UK, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Malta and with Lotto Quebec in Canada.
Lloyd Butler, CEO of Live 5, said: “We have taken a slightly different direction with Sheba, creating a simple and in some ways stripped back slot. Because of this, we have had to nail the production value and ensure the game still delivers a thrilling player experience.”
“We have achieved this by ensuring Sheba has plenty of exciting features, including our innovation Super Spins, and combining this with beautiful graphics and animations and authentic sound, all of which comes together perfectly.”
“We are delighted to have launched Sheba exclusively with William Hill, and for it then to hit the wider market via our excellent distribution partner, SG Digital.”
Craig Staples, Head of Gaming content at William Hill, said: “At a time when slot games are becoming increasingly complex, it’s refreshing to see our original bespoke retail title become the latest online offering from our partnership with Live 5.”
“Focusing on quality game play, delivering thrills, entertainment and big-win potential players have come to expect.”
“We are delighted to be able to launch Sheba online to William Hill players before anyone else and just like the other Live5 slots we stock in our game lobby, expect the game to be immensely popular.”
