Max Quest: Wrath of Ra Details
As the game suggests, players will be facing the wrath of Ancient Egypt. A group of treasure hunters accidentally disturb the seal on an ancient tomb buried deep beneath the sand of the Sahara. They find themselves battling reanimated mummies, deformed scarab beetles, and vengeful spirits of long dead pharaohs. This sounds like your regular fanfare Egyptology-themed game but Betsoft has changed the game.
Betsoft has made the Max Quest pokie a multi-player game, requiring six players to join the team headed by Brock Ryder, a mastermind rogue. Players can choose from playing as a weapons specialist, navigator, or technical experts. Each character has its own specialised weapon and can grow its XP. Furthermore, players can customise their characters with personalisation features, collect trophies, and rank on leaderboards.
Finally, Betsoft has removed the traditional reels and paylines that come with pokies. It has replaced the spin button with crosshairs and shooting targets randomly pays out coins. All in all, Betsoft has combined the thrill of console and social games with the reward of real money gambling games.
Betsoft’s aim with Max Quest: Wrath of Ra is to widen the appeal of online casino games without isolating dedicated pokie players. It seems like the game has a wide appeal and generated massive interest. According to Betsoft’s market research and promotional campaigning, Max Quest “has captured the attention of more than four million viewers”.
Betsoft has created a never-before-seen casino game that will change what players can expect from pokies. “From its high-octant gameplay to its console-grade graphics and animations, Max Quest is ready redefine what casino gaming can be – by capturing and holding the attention of both traditional slots players and all-new demographics,” said Anastasi.
