Games (slots) by Quickspin
The philosophy of Quickspin game development is quality over quantity. That’s why the company can’t brag with wide variety of slots for various themes as the leaders of industry, like NetEnt and Microgaming, but it can boast of their quality, brand recognition and popularity among users.
At the moment Quickspin specializes in the creation of video slots, but in the future, it might widen its range of casino games with table games, video poker and so on.
The main task of Quickspin developers is making video slots, which allow users to have a good time. Naturally, most of the players spend time playing slots and trying to win money and that doesn’t mean they are not going or want to get pleasure of gaming process. The possibility to snatch a large sum of money is only a part of entertainment process. In Quickspin believe that the company need to focus not on getting profit, but on creating handy and user-friendly slots for end-users. The quality of work in the company is assessed on user satisfaction level - if the users are satisfied - it is a good game for Quickspin. That way profit and popularity come anyway.
The design and development of each video slot by Quickspin starts with making mathematical model. This is one of peculiarities of the supplier as many companies choose theme and graphics first. However, Quickspin developers’ priority is to realize how the game would function from mathematical standpoint first. Such an approach guarantees integrity of the game and matching it to the required numbers of RTP.
In the process of working on it ideas about theme and graphics appear. The bright illustration of this principle of work is Big Bad Wolf video slot. In this video slot math model of the game sets the tone for the gaming process. Quickspin also pays a lot of attention to slots sound effects and animation. The company conceives that sounds is not just a pleasant add-on to the game, but an integral part of the game, like graphics.
When it comes to video slots themes, the company tries to create games on fresh and popular themes, that’s why there are no games on the theme of Ancient Egypt, leprechauns, etc. Quickspin sails their own boat. Most of Quickspin games have their own characters and stories. Certain stories, like the one about the three little pigs, realized in the Big Bad Wolf video slot, are familiar practically to everyone so it is easy to develop characters and present them to the public. The others, like Illuminous are much trickier. Such developments take much more time and graphics for them, and overall comprehension of the slot are tested much more thoroughly. As Quickspin assure, the company has three old version of Illuminous in their archives.
The end goal of the company employers is creating the best video slots, which would be able to compete on the market with games of other popular developers. The employees of the company always strive to offer the best possible gaming experience. Quickspin employees make the slots they love playing themselves; and they are just lucky that others share their taste.
Quickspin and social casino
Besides, Quickspin company makes games for Facebook. The only difference between these games and games for real money online casinos is that you can’t play there for real money. Games in Facebook are solely directed on the fun of the players. There are no other differences between the games. Design, math and sounds - it all works exactly the same way as for casino games for real money. The company believes that good game remains good no matter what reward awaits the player in the end - money or candy wrappers.
The company claim that Free2Play business model (games for fun only) is very important. More to that, it was the main source of income while RMG (real money game) model wasn’t the part of the market. However, even now Quickspin management holds Free2Play model not less that for RMG.
Quickspin is among the few suppliers that offer games for both sectors and it is highly unlikely that the situation will change in the nearest future.
