The leading online casino and gambling software provider Microgaming has just announced that they have added Gamevy, a start-up game developer, to their Quickfire platform. The integration process happened with no issues, giving both companies exactly what they wanted. Gamevy will be able to promote their skill-based games to a broader market and all of the online casinos that use Microgaming will be able to provide those same games to their players.
Gamevy’s Skill-Based Games
Despite being a relatively new start-up, Gamevy has already made a name for themselves; or else they wouldn’t have been able to land such a big deal with Microgaming. They have won several awards since they began creating their games, including:
- Pitch ICE 2015. Where new companies got the chance to present their ideas and have experts in the industry give them advice for the future.
- Game to Watch ICE 2016. A prize was given to those companies that create innovative games that are set to revolutionize the industry.
Their games are what is attracting such deserved attention from the big companies that drive the online gambling industry. They specialize in creating skill-based and instant win online games, where the players are given the opportunity to either answer questions or solve puzzles in order to win. These games use the players own skill rather than luck, and are believed to be the replacement for the slots.
Some of their games include:
Gears of Fortune
Microgaming Online Casinos to Benefit
Part of the benefits that come with this deal is the fact that Gamevy has direct access to Microgaming’s large network of gambling operators, which includes international and US online casinos. As Tom Chamberlain, Head of Quickfire, stated,
“Gamevy’s content is fresh and exciting. A clear focus of ours is to deliver unique and differentiated content to the hundreds of brands live on the Quickfire platform. Gamevy definitely fit this bill and we’re excited to have them on board, adding to our already extensive library of Microgaming and development partner content.”
This will be an incredibly beneficial arrangement for both companies, as it will give Gamevy the reach and financing they need to continue creating their innovative games, and will give Microgaming another amazing asset to offer their partners. The next few years will be exciting to see what new games they come up with.
