New game launch brings another innovative branded board game title to the gaming sector
LAS VEGAS – 20 January, 2021 – Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) has expanded its portfolio of games developed under license from Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) with the launch of its new feature-packed online slot game CLUEDO Cash Mystery.
The new title from Scientific Games’ in-house studio builds on the Company’s popular portfolio of Hasbro branded content, the two companies having collaborated together since 1998 on leading gaming brands, including the top selling MONOPOLY franchise.
CLUEDO Cash Mystery is based on the globally recognized board game brand and incorporates all the familiar characters, rooms and weapons associated with the brand. Offering a top prize of £250,000, the online slot brings the classic game to life across 5 reels, offering 180 free spin combinations, up to 6x multipliers, and up to 25 spins that will make for a high action gaming experience with thrilling reveals.
Scientific Games and Hasbro extended their license agreement in 2018 for the exclusive use of the MONOPOLY brand as well as 15 other iconic game brands in certain categories of gaming. CLUEDO Cash Mystery is the latest product of their longstanding partnership.
Mark Blecher, SVP Corporate Strategy and Business Affairs at Hasbro said, “For more than 90 years, Hasbro has been dedicated to delivering gaming entertainment with exceptional quality. Creating products that our customers can trust is of the upmost importance to us, and with Scientific Games, we know that our brands are in the safest of hands. After the success of MONOPOLY, it’s a pleasure to see even more of our iconic games spark great innovation in the gaming industry and enable more players to enjoy our brands across the globe.”
Rob Procter, Content Director, Digital at Scientific Games said, “Our relationship with Hasbro has gone from strength to strength since we first worked together in 1998 and it’s a privilege to still be delivering innovative online casino entertainment inspired by their iconic brands more than 20 years later. The MONOPOLY brand has been a staple of our portfolio and one of the most popular branded games on the market. As another timeless game with global popularity, CLUEDO Cash Mystery will no doubt be an equally strong performer as we have already seen from the launch of the game with Flutter last week and we look forward to the network-wide launch. Our design team has done a tremendous job in bringing the qualities of the classic board game to life in this action-packed slot, which includes a multitude of combinations for the bonus round that ensures players will receive a different experience each time.”
