Out of a dozen modern and relatively young software companies that have emerged in the recent years and set their goals to conquer the industry and flood the online gambling market with their products, Quickspin may be one of the few brands that are pulling it off. The Swedish provider has created some of the world’s most amazing video slots and already kept their promise in delivering innovative, high quality games. Quickspin’s team includes experienced individuals who call the shots and choose to release slots that they themselves would play.
Quickspin doesn’t have a massive portfolio, but each and every game in it is first class, it’s something else. They develop strictly slots, take them extremely seriously in a way that drives their production and stimulates their creativity. Load a Quickspin slot, any title, and you’ll feel the ambition, absorb the stunning graphics and immerse yourself in a utopia slot world stocked with multipliers, free spins, extra wins and phenomenal bonuses.
Established in 2012, the Quickspin studio settled in Stockholm, Sweden’s capital. Apart from their headquarters, the company has offices in Malta as well. Determined to provide optimum gameplay and an unforgettable slot experience to a massive audience, the Quickspin team opted for a high standard. They obtained both Alderney Gambling Control Commission and UK Gambling Commission licenses, making Quickspin software completely legal and fair, fit to be enjoyed by players from all around the world. It is likely that the company couldn’t have been capable of producing cutting-edge content if it weren’t for highly skilled seniors in the business like Daniel Lindberg and Mats Westerlund. Previously employed at Net Entertainment, these two brought all their knowledge about sales, design and product strategy into Quickspin. Currently, Quickspin operates as part of the Playtech Group.
It is often seen how software producers copy ideas from one another. Quickspin delivers fresh ideas and projects that are yet unhacked by the envious competition. As mentioned, the Swedish studio develops slots exclusively and has no presence at the tables. For one to develop top-notch online slot machines, it is crucial to do well with graphics. And Quickspin does an amazing job at bringing characters to life, telling silly stories and making gameplay dynamic and vibrant through impeccable and thought-out graphics. All games are developed in-house, and you won’t find any branded slots in the Quickspin portfolio because all the ideas behind the projects are authentic.
In recent developments, Quickspin launched an innovative Achievements Engine across six of its recent and most popular games. Set over four levels, the Achievements Engine pays out in tokens at each level and takes the players through six unique and extraordinary game events. Designed to give back a part of a player’s expected losses, this tool allows players to exchange tokens for a bonus feature on the game of their choice.
Focused on being up-to-date and in sync with modern technologies, Quickspin made sure most its games are based on Flash and HTML5 in order to incorporate them into various gaming platforms, particularly mobile devices. Therefore, its slots can be played on iOS and Android phones, Windows Phone handsets and tablets, too.
Being transparent about most things that matter in the business, Quickspin announces on the official website that, at the moment, the software company has 30 slots in their portfolio and 24 on the mobile platform. The collection is small, but highly diverse and attractive. There are slots with Asian and Arabian themes, slots inspired by children’s tales, pirates and the Wild West.
One of the most visually impressive Quickspin products is the Epic Journey video slot. Loosely based on Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne, Epic Journey is able to keep any player entertained and intrigued with a Volcano feature, Fossil Hunt bonus, Mushroom pick bonus, and a Safari Free Spins round. If you’re into space-themed video slot machines, Quickspin offers Supernova. The game has 3 regular reels and 2 additional ones with multiplier values; it also has colorful nebulas and black holes for symbols.
What marks Quickspin’s production, though, are several slots inspired by fairytales and legends. Rapunzel’s Tower, Goldilocks and the Wild Bears, The Three Musketeers and Sinbad are some of them, while the leading title in this category is definitely Big Bad Wolf. The 25-line video slot tells a story of three little piglets and their conniving adversary; it has a brilliant design, Wilds, multipliers, free spins and Swooping Reels, as well as an exceptionally high return rate. Of late, Quickspin has released Sticky Bandits, Fairy Gate and Sakura Fortune. More new slots are on the way.
Within a few years on the market and tackling all the best casino operators at some point, Quickspin earned prestigious awards and recognitions. Not that awards and trophies say more about the brand than the games themselves, but it’s nice to know that both the players’ community and the industry acknowledge what this creative studio has done so far. So, let’s put things into perspective and establish a timeline.
The company was founded in 2012. Already in 2013 Quickspin faced fierce competition at the EGR Operator Awards, getting nominated right away. In 2014, the studio added two precious awards to their trophy cabinet, the Rising Star Award and the Game of the Year award for the Big Bad Wolf video slot, at the EGR B2B Awards. More testaments to the company’s rapid and deserved success came along, in form of Mobile Gaming Software and Social Gaming Supplier awards.
Last year, at the 2016 EGR B2B Awards, Quickspin won in the category of Innovation in RNG Casino Software. As for the EGR Operator Awards 2017, the company announced in September that Sakura Fortune slot has entered the 12-title shortlist for the Game of the Year category. There’s little time left until the awards take place in London, so we’ll know soon if Quickspin managed to repeat the success of Big Bad Wolf from a few years back with their fresh Asian-themed online slot.
