CORE Gaming integrates mobile motion technology into scratch card game

30 November 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- CORE Gaming, the world-leading HTML5 gambling software house, has incorporated innovative mobile motion technology into its new Wild West-themed Pan for Gold instant-win scratch card game.
The release, set in the gold rush era, offers a huge £25,000 jackpot and is available through Sky Vegas.
Players simply buy a £2 card, choose one of six locations on a map of the gold rush and then get three chances to find gems as they dunk their sifting pan. Mobile gamers are prompted to shake or swipe their device -- with desktop players told to click and drag -- to reveal golden nuggets, precious gems and unwanted odds and ends.
Pan for Gold is the first HTML5 game of its kind to use the device itself to interact with the game.
"This game has truly been a team effort," said CORE Gaming Head of Production Kev Short. "The initial thought process of using the device to enhance the player experience of a game, was developed as part of CORE's ongoing research and development program designed to keep them at the forefront of mobile gaming technology.”"
If the player gathers three of the same gems during the dunks, then the corresponding win is awarded, from £2 for turquoise gems all the way up to £25,000 pearls.
Golden nuggets are collected in a separate pot and are retained should any further scratch cards be bought, giving players an incentive to keep enjoying the game.
Lucky gold diggers that obtain eight nuggets enter the bank bonus feature, where they can weigh their haul and win huge prizes up to £25,000.
"Using all our in-house expertise, the development team has done an outstanding job to deliver this creative and ultimately fun gaming experience," Short added.
CORE Gaming is a world leader in the development of HTML5 gambling content. It has created more than 150 games since launch in 2011 for the online gaming industry's leading operators and is leading the way in HTML5 technology, recently deploying a single code base strategy for both mobile and desktop.
CORE Gaming is based in the U.K. and has a software licence through the UK Gambling Commission.
