Its brand new and take the limelight away from fishing games and brings arcade gameplay into the iGaming market. Playtech’s Shoot for Cash series will give players access to multiple casino shooting games in a brand-new twist that none of us saw coming!

The new game title comes out of the Playtech Origins studio which is also well known for its long line of video slot titles! Red hot slot titles like Rhino Blitz, Buffalo Blitz II (also a live casino slot), Mega Fire Blaze Roulette Live, European Football Roulette, and several of the Age of the Gods video slots came out of the Origins studio. A couple of those titles are included in the progressive jackpot pool such as Age of the Gods: Glorious Griffin which joins 9 more Age of the Gods jackpot slot games, Age of the Gods Live Roulette, and Age of the Gods Spin a Win!

Now the Playtech Origins Studio has taken online casino gaming to a new level! Take the thrill of the arcades, wrap it up into an online casinos game, and give players a chance to use a little of luck and plenty of skill to win some cash in an all-encompassing and super-engaging arcade-style intergalactic space mission to kick start the collection.

Meanwhile, Playtech Origins is surely in the process of designing the next in the series which will not necessarily be a space mission – it could be a Wild West shoot ‘em up, a war game, or any number of other shooting arcade games. As with video slots, Playtech could take this series anywhere, and if successful we may see deals made with game development companies to bring shooting games such as Time Crisis or even Call of Duty to the iGaming scene!

The UK market will see the initial release of the first game in the series which will be Space Hunter™: Shoot for Cash. Players will win cash for shooting down spaceships using their ‘power cannons’, and the bigger the spaceship destroyed, the higher the payout will be!
