- Double Top Darts to take on established darts slot games
- Inspired Gaming’s second recent dip into sports involves innovative dart throw option
Having recently landed the rights to use Mike Tyson’s image in their upcoming boxing-themed slot, Inspired Gaming is on something of a roll.
The small-scale online casino software developer is going out of their way to produce big, franchised slot machine games with recognisable faces fronting them.
Inspired has dipped back into the world of sport to try to make a name for themselves in online casino gaming with the launch of a darts-themed slot.
Giving Bullseye a run for its money
Despite several darts-themed flops over recent years, Microgaming’s Bullseye seemed to really hit the…err…bullseye when it was launched two years ago.
Since then, the darts slot which is based on the hugely popular 80s and 90s UK television gameshow of the same name had little to no competition in this genre.
That was until Stake Logic brought out Darts Heroes, reported on by Casinopedia in March. This would appear to be the front-runner – given that it has licensed the official players like Phil “The Power” Taylor and Michael Van Gerwen, to name but two.
Inspired Gaming’s title doesn’t have the famous faces, instead relying on the less famous division of darts – the BDO. So in this slot there is Dennis Priestley, Tony O’Shea and Peter Manley. Not similar Tyson in terms of profile, it’s probably fair to say.
It does feature the legendary scorer Russ Bray, however. His voice has to be heard to be believed.
Double Top Darts features famous all your stereotypical imagery, including pints of lager to boot.
Landing three of the dartboard symbols on the first, third and fifth reels will trigger a bonus round in Double Top Darts. In this bonus, players will get to enjoy a total of 12 free spins. During those spins, additional wild symbols can appear based on how you throw two darts.
A final dart throw will be available at the end of the free spins bonus, and this will determine whether players can retrigger the free spins bonus round.
Inspired Gaming is still to unveil more details.
