Many of us have fantasised about having superpowers, even if only in our dreams. Apparently someone at top casino software developer Playtech has too, as the team’s newest slot, Suicide Squad is based on the popular squad of super-villains first created by DC Comics. According to the original brand, the Suicide Squad is a group of extreme misfits who have been incarcerated, and now are engaged in various missions, hoping to have their prison sentences commuted.
Not your typical group of superheroes then! But then again, Playtech has made it quite clear that its team of creatives isn’t your every-day, run of the mill developers either.
The new game is jam-packed with special features: stacked wilds, a special features bonus round, and best of all, four progressive jackpots that are triggered completely at random. Players simply never know when they are going to hit one of the big ones, which only serves to add to the excitement.
Fans of the original Suicide Squad of super-villains-wanting-to-do-good will be elated to learn that five of the most popular members of the clan make a guest appearance on the reels. Harley Quinn, the Joker, Deadshot, Katana and El Diablo are all there to work together towards massive scores on the reels.
Playtech is one of the largest casino software developers in the world. The company was founded in 1999, and is listed on the London Stock Exchange. The company recently announced that it was in the process of issuing approximately €530 million in bond notes. Bond notes are a common way in which securitisation is created on the stock market.
The proceeds of the sale of the bond notes will go towards covering the bridging finance incurred by the company when it acquired Italy-based Snaitech, as well as the redemption of high-yield Snaitech bonds.
Bonds generally have a deadline by which time they have to be redeemed, and they are often used as a means of deferring immediate financial expenses, so that these may be mitigated over a period of time. The practice of the issuing of bonds has been around on the stock exchange since its inception, and is generally regarded as the best possible way to off-set debt without incurring sky-high interest charges.
All in all, it looks like Playtech is having a busy year, and with a sizzling new Suicide Squad slot on the horizon and a massive financial move made, they can only hope to reap the rewards.
