Recently, we sat down with the head of product management at Gamebeat, Anvar. Gamebeat is a newer game provider with recently released top online slot titles, including:
- Max Miner
- Sea Secret
- Odin’s Tree
During his time at Gamebeat, Anvar has overseen various projects and has been at the forefront of helping to push this new provider into various markets worldwide. We were excited to learn more about Gamebeat, its games, and the amazing team of iGaming professionals behind the company.
And thank you for taking the time to sit down with us to answer some questions about Gamebeat. We are very excited to showcase all the amazing games your company has been working on with our readers.
So, tell us a little background about yourself and what inspired you to start your career in the gambling sphere.
Hello, thanks for inviting me to the interview! My name is Anvar, I’m in charge of product management at Gamebeat. I received a technical education at the university, then worked in the advertising field, managed projects. We have developed websites, corporate identities, turnkey events, and even global strategies for entering other markets. I got into the field of gambling by accident, but my passion for gaming helped me quickly get comfortable and feel at ease.
I see you host games in 17 different languages! How many markets and operators are you currently partnered with?
At the moment, we cooperate with more than 100 operators and connect new partners almost daily. Our main target markets are Australia, Canada, the CIS, and Europe.
Having your games available at so many operators, I’m curious. Have you noticed any difference in how Gamebeat games are received by players at crypto casinos versus fiat-only casinos?
It is not the first year that I have noticed the so-called “rejuvenation trend” in all areas. Companies are trying to focus on the younger generation because, in just a couple of years, they will become the main audience, and it is better if you already start working with them and find out their preferences and values right now. In our strategy, we plan to work closely with other crypto operators and prepare content that will meet the needs of the audience.
I love seeing that Gamebeat is already offering hold and win slots and in-game jackpots. What would you say are the other stand-out features in your games?
In our games, we focus on the balance between visuals and math. In terms of technical features, I would highlight the loading time of our games, as many players and partners praise the performance of our slots.
It seems like every day a new game provider hits the market. What gaps would you say Gamebeat is looking to fill in the iGaming industry that other providers haven’t?
I would certainly highlight flexibility and courage. We don’t develop games because “everyone does it, so it works.” We try to develop in a unique way – to pay attention to both experiments and content familiar to players.
How difficult has it been, or what challenges have you or your team faced as a new game provider?
As in any business that you start from scratch, we faced [some] difficulties…For example, when you need to find a team, organize processes, establish sales and marketing, and find new contacts. Moreover, there is practically no information about our sphere and about the development of slot games in the public domain. However, our perfectionism, passion for work, and a team of professionals helped us overcome all the difficulties that arose.
What would you say are the best measures of a game’s success in today’s gaming world?
When a player wants to return to your game and does it.
In your opinion, how do games from Gamebeat add value to the overall user experience for casino players?
This indicator is quite difficult to estimate, but looking at our current statistics and the growth in the number of players, I can answer positively. We are constantly analyzing and looking for new solutions so that we can use the unique user experience that the player received in our games in future projects.
My favorite slot from you guys is the recently released Sea Secret because I just love a hold and win bonus game. What is your favorite Gamebeat game, and why?
Fortune 5 Double is my absolute favorite! I love simple slots that are not overloaded with a bunch of features. And I really like the implementation with multiplication and the mathematics of the slot, the game keeps you for quite a long time, and at the same time, the visual is not too tiring, even if you spend more than an hour in the game. I checked it for myself and more than once 😊
Crypto casinos saw a surge in popularity amongst players with provably fair games and mini-games such as Plinko and crash games. Can we expect to see any upcoming releases from Gamebeat in either of these fields?
We see changes in the sphere and where the market is moving, and we simply cannot ignore these changes. Therefore, keep a close eye on our updates – they will contain a lot of interesting things.
Gamebeat has seen a rapid expansion throughout 2022. As we head into 2023, what’s next on the horizon?
In 2023, there are big plans to declare ourselves to the whole world. We want to grow qualitatively and quantitatively. New engine, interface update, new markets – GameBeat is having a long and interesting journey ahead.
Finally, what advice would you give to any other young game developers out there looking to make their mark in the industry?
Do what you will, but do so with love.
Thank you so much for your time. It has been a pleasure, and I can’t wait to see what comes next from you and your amazing team at Gamebeat!
It was a fascinating interview; thanks for the interesting questions!
