There’s a symbiotic relationship between gambling operators, especially the ones that offer online slot games to their customers, and software development companies that produce those slot titles. The reason behind this long-lasting and successful relationship is because it helps operators keep their customers happy by giving them the chance to try new and exciting games, a little bit like what Xbox and PlayStation are doing. Giving customers the option to choose from a wide range of titles, keeps them coming back and most importantly, it caters to different tastes.
In order for slot providers to come up with different themes, they have struck deals with Hollywood studios so they can create their own branded titles. As everyone can expect, a lot of the themes are based on blockbuster movies, new and old, while in-house produced titles give developers the chance to create games based on popular themes, ranging from ancient Egypt and the mystical world of Asia, as well as more old school themes that featured animals and fruits across the reels.
With that in mind, we are taking a closer look at three of the most diverse and popular slot providers and what they have to offer to the industry. A lot of their games are constantly being reviewed by affiliate sites such as Bingo Find, as they provide all the tips and information on how to play the game and utilize their special features.
NetEnt, the Stockholm listed company, is considered by many industry observers as the leader in their field based on their vast array of games. Their recent acquisition of Red Tiger Gaming is only going to solidify that position. When it comes to striking deals with the ‘big six’ Hollywood studios, nobody comes even remotely close to what NetEnt has achieved over the last few years. The Planet of the Apes slot game was produced in association with 20th Century Fox, while the exciting Dracula slot was developed in association with Universal. There’s not a single online casino today that doesn’t have a content partnership with this digital provider, and their expansion to the UK is only going to enhance that.
Yggdrasil Gaming, a relative newcomer to the iGB industry, was founded in 2013 and its portfolio consists of over 70 video slot games. While they might lack the high-profile partnerships that NetEnt is so known for, they make up for it by creating games that catch the attention of slot players and have viral appeal. A prime example is their Vikings slot trilogy, which is clearly based on the popular HBO TV series Vikings. In order to stand out from the crowd, Yggdrasil implement eminent marketing techniques to support their releases and generate awareness. You can expect more richly themed games from this provider for years to come.
Play’n Go is an award-winning slot provider, having scooped the Mobile Supplier of the Year award for the second year running at the 5 Star Media Awards. The company was founded back in 2005 and it was one of the first suppliers to see the benefit of mobile gaming. Their games featured rich characters and vivid colours, with the likes of Rise of the Olympus catering to their customers that like all things about ancient Greece and their Rich Wilde series offering players the much-appreciated adventure theme.
African slot players tend to be very selective when it comes to their choice of games, but these three providers are bound to give them a plethora of different themes that can be accessed from their favourite online casino.
