Evolution launches a game that features NFTs

NFT stands for non-fungible token and there is a wider explanation defining it. However, if you merge that with a game provider, something inventive may come out of both. NFT or a non-fungible token is digital data stored on a blockchain. This certifies a digital asset to be unique and original. NFTs can be represented by photos, audio, video or other types of digital files.

When it comes to slots providers try to be as inventive as they can, so there is something new about Evolution Gaming and NFTs. This provider is the first to release a slot that has integrated NFTs. These are four CryptoPunks the provider has purchased earlier in 2021. They are implemented in NFT Megaways™, a game created by Red Tiger, which is an Evolution Group brand.

What are CryptoPanks?

CryptoPunks have a size of 24x24 pixels and 8-bits, and it is a unique avatar that is a form of NFT. This creation began as an experiment of two software developers in 2017 who had a goal to create a software program that can generate unique avatars.

Evolution has a long history of innovation

Todd Haushalter, who is the Chief Product Officer at Evolution said the provider has a long record of innovation and being first with distinctively different new ideas. He commented the goal of Evolution is to always offer players the most feature-rich and vivid gameplay possible.

“In essence, it’s all about creativity and originality and that’s why the CryptoPunks were such a great fit for us,” he added.

Haushalter continues that with this game, the crypto trend is transformed into a form of entertainment. This is the first time such a game is released, and its players can also be the first ones that have ever tried such a game.

“As a game, it’s going to appeal to lovers of slot games everywhere, as well as bringing in those crypto fans who want to see a new way of using this CryptoPunk artwork,” he commented.

He then said the team has done a brilliant job and he is looking forward to seeing the game go live.

The CryptoPunks as unique collectable characters in NFT Megaways™, act as wild symbols that can only land in particular positions on the reels. Except for substituting all pay symbols, they have increasing multipliers by up to 30x.
