Microgaming has been outsourcing development of its slots content for quite some time now. Through a press release, the leading games supplier to online casinos introduces Slingshot Studios, its latest partner. Slingshot Studios is a new independent game studio that will be developing exclusive content for Microgaming.

The focus of Slingshot Studios is on slots machines. They take basic slots mechanisms and enhance the product with fresh and innovative features. The press release states, “Driven by a passion for bringing vibrant game experiences to players, the team comprises industry talent with a flair for producing high-quality games made for avid slots fans and new players alike.”

The first official offering from Slingshot Studios will go live at Microgaming online casinos like Jackpot City, 32Red and Lucky Nugget on Wednesday October 10. The slot game is titled Cash of Kingdoms. The action packed video slot includes a brand new feature in the form of Invading Wilds, which is available in both the base game and free spins. Cash of Kingdoms has a fantasy theme that is popular among the players at Microgaming licensees. The slot game was announced by Microgaming on the third day of ICE Totally Gaming 2018, earlier this year. The Microgaming Bar was thematically decked out with medieval accessories, including barrels for tables, archery targets and full sets of armour. To draw even more attention to the slot game Microgaming had arranged a special routine by a skilled foot archer.

Slingshot Studios was launched in 2016 by a crew of gambling industry veterans and new kids in the field in order to create diversity. They bring in expertise in illustration, animation, development, testing, composition, production and many more skills needed for slots development. The team believes that great designs come from constant iteration and innovation, and breaking things to learn. Their objective is to create highly entertaining and compelling products exclusively for Microgaming and their customers.

John Coleman, Microgaming CEO, said that Microgaming’s extensive casino games portfolio will benefit from the unique personality and expertise of Slingshot Studios. These original video slots will be targeted at specific markets and audiences. Richard Vermaak, Creative Director at Slingshot Studios, said that they love building games that people love to play. The team cannot wait to share them with the Microgaming players. Cash of Kingdoms is the first taste of what is to come. He added that Slingshot is looking forward to unveiling more content from them in the coming months.
