Italy’s National Card Game Inspires Habanero’s Scopa Slot

Habanero, one of the best slot providers in Asia, explores different cultures with the release of its new slot title. From Asia to Europe, the developer’s new video slot, Scopa, transports players to the beautiful countryside of Italy.

Arcangelo Lonoce, Head of Business Development Europe at Habanero, announced the release of the game across the developer’s operator network. In a press release, Lonoce shared his enthusiasm in introducing a new game to new players:

“We hope that transporting players on a memorable exploration of Italy’s vibrant past while playing its favourite card game will prove to be the perfect hit – and we’re excited to be bringing it to our players in Italy and the world over.”

Scopa is the latest addition to Habanero’s portfolio of 100+ Bitcoin slots. The game follows the release of Techno Tumble, Lucky Fortune Cat, and Knockout Football Rush.

Gameplay And Theme

Scopa isn’t a simple video slot that offers the Italian countryside as a theme. Scopa, of the same name, is actually one of the two major national card games in Italy. The card game is played with a standard Italian 40-card deck and features two individual players or four players in two partnerships.

Habanero incorporated the culture of Italy and the competitiveness of the card game into their Scopa video slot. The backdrop features a stunning landscape of the Italian countryside in different cities, while the symbols are inspired by the traditional 40-card deck used in Scopa. Players can make winning combinations using Italian trains, monarchs, jacks, sun coins, daggers, and goblets.

For the game’s layout, Scopa features 5 reels, 3 rows, and 27 paylines. The game has high volatility, so casino operators can offer it with a maximum of 93.96% RTP. Stake levels range from 0.15 to 3,000 coins.

Bonus Features

Scopa Payouts – get instant cash prizes of up to 25x the stake when you hit a reel full of winning combinations.
