We have had a look at the bigger real money gaming studios that drive the online casino industry. However, there are many, many smaller studios that are distributed by bigger companies. We can consider these guys independent software design studios.
For example, Microgaming is a huge gaming company. They have authorised a number of smaller studios to produce exclusive gaming content for them. Let’s take a closer peek at some of them!
Hailing from Ipswich, UK, this independent software company is best known for 3D roulette. This particular game stood out from the pack with attention to detail on the realistic movement of the ball. They have also produced Vegas Single Deck Blackjack, Atlantic City Blackjack, American Roulette, and European Blackjack. Other titles include Vegas Downtown Blackjack, and Vegas Strip Blackjack.
Pulse 8 Studios
Pulse 8 Studios use the slogan “a dragon breathes fire and so do we.” Their logo is a red dragon and the games they design are strong, captivating, Asian inspired themes. So far they have a small back catalogue of games including Relic Seekers Slot, Lucky Twins Jackpot Slot and Treasures of Lion City. We predict big things in the future from this fierce real money game studio. Enter the dragon!
Established in 2016, Stormcraft studios developers have worked in collaboration with Microgaming on some well known titles. Games include Jurassic Park, Mega Moolah and Immortal Romance. If you are already a casino player you will know these are not just some old games, these are relative blockbusters! The Stormcraft designers pride themselves on showcasing quality and creativity. They work under the slogan “bringing games to life” and it’s clear to see they deliver as well. Their back catalogue includes games such as Break Away, Wild Catch, Jungle Jim and Lucky Wins. All the games are certified as fair.
Fortune Factory Studios
FFS prides itself on producing premium gaming content. They have earned a solid reputation in the industry for creating innovative and immersive casino games. They apply careful consideration to the user experience, striving for a better and better experience. Top game titles include Showdown Saloon and Holly Jolly Penguins.
Triple Edge Studios
Founded in 2010, this Floridian based game developer has already made a name for itself. They have been providing exclusive game content for Microgaming since 2017, including Book of Oz. Triple Edge Studios is well known for designing highly volatile slots such as Playboy Gold. This is a 6 reel game with x100 ways to win and features multipliers and respins.
This is by no means a conclusive list of indie real money game providers, but it does give you an idea of how this distribution model works in the casino industry. Other indie studios that run under Microgaming’s distribution umbrella include Sling Shot, All41studios, Neon Valley Studios, Alchemy Gaming, and Gameburger Studios. We have every confidence this list will grow and grow over time too! This is great news, as it adds diversity to the gaming platforms and enables smaller creative teams to get a piece of the action without the same budgets as the bigger guys.
