As part of Novomatic UK, Bridgend-based Astra Games has been pushing the innovation envelope since 1992.
Its latest development has seen the company build on the trend in high street gaming by bringing its industry-renowned slot gaming to Britain’s supermarket aisles.
Trolley King, featuring the appropriately-themed Reel King slot variant, is a mobile gaming interface that affixes to the back of a supermarket trolley, giving the shopper the chance to play a high quality Astra slot whilst they wander the aisles with the ultimate prize of getting one’s shopping free.
Since its introduction the company has fitted more than 2018 units nationwide, and Astra’s Chris Butler believes this is to be the year that Trolley King really establishes itself as UK gaming’s hottest new product, with the company currently seeking further installation agents.
Keeping at the forefront of industry trends as ever, the product is currently rolled out with contactless payment only, with coin-op mechanisms being looked into should testing deem necessary.
Currently having been launched with a special edition of “REEL KING Trolley”, Butler commented that there is a full pipeline of games to come in 2018.
Further information and pricing structures are available at TrolleyKing.com with orders currently on a first come first serve basis.
