Betsoft has released its latest slot title “Expansion”. This latest 5 reel, 30 payline intergalactic adventure from Betsoft brings Stacked Mystery Symbols, Alien Multipliers, an innovative Directional Wilds mechanic and a Free Spins round to take players to another world.

Loaded with intergalactic symbols from the high paying Gold Star that brings 3.33x on five-of-a-kind wins to the colourful planets, Expansion puts a new spin on a space themed slot.

Each reel also contains Stacked Mystery Symbol positions that will be replaced with a random symbol before each spin. As the positions are always filled with the same symbol, the winning chances just get better.

However, it is the Directional Wild Ray Guns that really fire up Expansion. With any spin, up to three Directional Wilds can appear on reels two, three or four, revealing a Ray Gun that shoots in one of eight different directions. This will change all the symbols in its path to Wilds including the original Directional Wild leading to a barrage of big win potential.

Wilds will substitute for all symbols except the planet Mars Scatter. When three or more Mars Scatters land on the reels, Free Spins are triggered and the world changes. As the skies darken, an alien UFO invasion bursts across the screen.

The Mothership hovers over the reels as one craft lands. But these aliens are most welcome visitors; not just coming in peace but bringing a Multiplier from 2x to 10x to expand the entire win.

Even more, during Free Spins, the Directional Wild laser guns will fire twice giving players a second chance whilst turning more of the reels Wild. Add in the potential to re trigger Free Spins during the Free Spins round and players will see the world and their winnings literally expanding before their eyes. If you cannot wait for Free Spins to trigger, the popular Betsoft Buy-in feature is available from the start.

This visually amazing slot puts a new spin on an extra-terrestrial theme. With a default RTP of 96.08% and a max win of 1212.93x, Expansion brings an out of this world experience right to players’ screens this February.

“Expansion is an original take on the spaceship genre. Using a retro art style for the animation and symbol design alongside great mechanics creates an instantly engaging experience. Players will be entranced by the game’s development as well as delighted with the pay outs. The broad betting range and medium volatility give universal appeal so we are confident that Expansion will be our next big hit,” Anastasia Bauer, Head of Account Management at Betsoft Gaming, said.

Bruce Smith Enterprise and The Cordish Companies have responded to a request for proposal issued by the City of Petersburg, Virginia with plans to codevelop a $1.4 billion Live! Gaming & Entertainment District, anchored by Live! Casino & Hotel Virginia. The proposed project will generate billions of dollars in economic benefits and spinoff development, create thousands of new jobs and benefits to the local community, and become a major new tourist destination for the City and the Central Virginia region.

The proposed site is ideally situated at the intersection of Wagner Road and Interstate I-95 with easy access on and off the East Coast’s major north-south interstate, making it the premier location in the Commonwealth. The partners also intend to quickly open an initial first phase casino within a year to begin creating jobs, vendor opportunities and economic benefits immediately for the City of Petersburg and its residents.

Bruce Smith Enterprise and The Cordish Companies’ longstanding relationship dates back to 2008, and most recently the team has partnered to bring a world-class casino resort destination to the Commonwealth. The joint venture partnership is the first-of-its-kind in the gaming and entertainment industry to have a minority-owned business enterprise as co-development partner.

The Petersburg ownership team, which makes up 50% minority equity participation, will become the largest minority ownership opportunity in the gaming and hospitality industry in the country, and will become a model for other projects in Virginia and throughout the nation. The team includes substantial investment from prominent minority businesses and individuals with a long history of residing, working, and investing in the Commonwealth including former Cox Communications GM and philanthropist Gary McCollum, former Philadelphia Eagle and University of Virginia All-American receiver Billy McMullen, and the Reynolds Family, founding family of Reynolds Metals.

Bruce Smith Enterprise, led by legendary NFL Hall of Fame member and Virginia native Bruce Smith, is a commercial real estate firm that specializes in the development of premier mixed-use projects. Headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA, the company has developed notable properties throughout the state and the Mid-Atlantic region that feature the cohesive and seamless integration of residential, hotel, Class A office, and retail space. Since retiring from professional football in 2004 after a prolific 19-year career, the NFL’s All-Time Sack Leader has endeavored to bring the same level of unparalleled excellence, diligence, and leadership that he honed as a veteran on the field to the management of Bruce Smith Enterprise. The successful development of timeless mixed-use properties that survive and withstand trends of the marketplace, strengthen, and invigorate the local economy and create jobs are core values of Bruce Smith Enterprise’s primary mission.

Bruce Smith Enterprise has flourished since its inception in 2004, partnering with Armada Hoffler in the development of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, The Swedish Embassy, Harbourside Office Building in Washington, D.C., and Blocks 7 and 10 in The Town Center of Virginia Beach, VA. Bruce Smith Enterprise’s portfolio also includes the Hilton Garden Inn and Smith’s Landing apartment community in Blacksburg, VA – a project built to service the needs of students, alumni, and their families at Smith’s Virginia Tech alma mater – as well as the Hyatt House Hotel and 27 Atlantic Apartments in Virginia Beach.

“I love Virginia. I was born and raised here. I attended VA Tech as a student athlete here, and after retiring from the NFL, I returned home with the inspiration and determination to help make it a more advantageous and prosperous place to live,” said Bruce Smith, Pro Football Hall of Famer, Prominent Virginian Developer and Community Leader.

“I have spent significant time in Petersburg talking with students and the community at large. I’ve had the opportunity to hear first-hand their stories of hardship, and I understand the struggle and the enormous challenges they face. Working as a developer in the state for over 20 years, I’m confident that Bruce Smith Enterprise and The Cordish Companies are the right partners for this undertaking, because we share the same vision and understand the needs of the City of Petersburg and its citizens. Together we can do remarkable work in Petersburg that will transform lives, restore hope, and ultimately imbue a new energy of revitalization that will be felt for generations. Our proposal represents a historic opportunity to prioritize the Petersburg community and put Virginians first,” Bruce Smith added.

“We are incredibly proud to join Bruce Smith and his team to present our vision for a transformational, world-class destination in Petersburg. As our development partner, Bruce shares our core values in investing for the long-term and creating jobs and opportunities for the community. No one comes close to our combined history of success and capabilities to be able to deliver a destination of this scale and complexity. The Cordish Companies’ track record for designing, financing, building, and operating large-scale mixed-use developments and casino resort destinations in the country is unmatched. Our success includes achieving every commitment, program, and goal in our proposals for cities across the country. We are committed to excellence, creating unforgettable experiences for our guests, and treating our team members and communities like family,” Zed Smith, Chief Operating Officer for The Cordish Companies, said.
