UK – Realistic Games raises the bar with iconic BAR-XBy Phil - 24 September 2020
Realistic Games has re-imagined one of the most popular land-based slots for online audiences in the latest addition to its portfolio BAR-X.
Released in collaboration with Electrocoin, the mastermind behind the 40-year old land-based original, the 3-reel, single payline slot captures the nostalgia of the low-tech classic for play across mobile, tablet and desktop devices.
Realistic’s online adaption gives players the option of three game profiles – BAR-X 30, BAR-X 40 and BAR-X 50 – on launching the game, with each offering maximum pay outs of 90x, 120x and 150x respectively.
Each win, which is awarded in any number of ways, including by way of a ‘Hold on Win’ or ‘Free Spin’ after a losing nudge, is added to the ‘Bank’ at the end of the game up to a maximum of three consecutive wins. Three nudges can be awarded at the end of any losing spin to provide players with more chances of a winning combination. The BAR-X launch is the fifth Realistic title based on the original brand, joining the widely popular BAR-X Game Changer, BAR-X Pull Tab, Super BAR-X Game Changer and Super Bar-X Pull Tab.
Robert Lee, Commercial Director of Realistic Games, said: “As one of the most successful land-based slots ever to hit the UK market, we are honoured to be bringing BAR-X to online players and have paid attention to every detail of the game to do the original justice. We’re extremely proud of the result and look forward to players of all demographics being able to enjoy the 3-reel version of this absolute classic slot for a long time to come. This is the first of six Electrocoin land-based titles we will be releasing in the coming months.”
Gabino Stergides, President of Electrocoin, said: “The success of BAR-X™ has not only been the making of Electrocoin, but it also spawned a series of similar games that defined a new gaming era. Four decades on from its release, we’re delighted by the game’s renewed appeal among a new generation who will benefit from Realistic’s quality remake and who will love watching the BAR-X brand flourish in its online life.”
