Spielo is an online and land-based casino game development company. Operating as the gaming division of GTECH, Spielo has become one of the stongest contenders in the casino gaming industry throughout the UK. In recent years, Spielo has also begun to establish a presence with many of the UK’s local casino and betting operators, including Coral in September of 2013.
Overview of Brilliant Fruits by Spielo
Spielo’s Brilliant Fruits slot is a simple and colourful design based on the archetypal fruit slots of yesteryear. The game plays out against an uncomplicated purple background and offers 5 reels and 5 paylines in total. The symbols here are traditional slots symbols like cherries, lemons, oranges and plums, as well as bars, sevens and diamonds.
Brilliant Fruits offers no free spins or bonus games, and instead awards players a top prize of 5,000 coins for landing 5 diamond symbols on an activated payline. Spielo sees strong performance from Brilliant Fruits in Coral shops, but the game can also be accessed by online players at Spielo online casinos.
Spielo’s Partnership with Coral Betting Shops
GTECH and Spielo made their partnership with Coral in 2013 to expand their presence in the UK betting market. The developer worked with the UK-based company Betdigital in order to optimise their Brilliant Fruits slot for Coral’s land-based betting terminals, which are installed throughout their betting shops. The Vice President of Commercial Gaming at GTECH, Marcel Heutmekers, gave comment on the event in September. He said that Spielo was happy to provide a quality game from their extensive library to Coral Betting Shops throughout the UK.
Coral shops are some of the UK’s most well-known high street betting, bingo and casino gaming venues, and 2013 saw Spielo pairing with the company to add their slot Brilliant Fruits to over 7,000 land-based gaming machines in Coral shops across the UK. As well as land-based offerings, Coral also provides players and bettors with an online gaming experience, and players may well see Spielo online slots on the platform sometime in the future.
Heutmekers mentioned that Coral represents one of the largest UK-based companies in the market, and is thus an important partner to the company. Their partnership, he noted, has benefitted all parties involved, as Spielo sees strong performance from Brilliant Fruits in Coral shops, and Spielo is seeking to expand their partnership with both Coral and Betdigital to bring more of their games to Coral betting terminals.
Popularity of the Brilliant Fruits Slot
Brilliant Fruits is the first of Spielo’s online slot games to be ported from an online format to a land-based one similar to the style taking from online pokies in Australia. The game is based on a classic fruit slot style that was particularly popular with casino players in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
This fruit slot style continues to be popular with slots players today, and Spielo sees strong performance from Brilliant Fruits in Coral shops to date. The slot has proved to be popular with international audiences from Spielo’s online platform, but its presence in Coral’s betting shops gave the developer footing with the UK gaming market.
