The online casino industry seems to have an endless amount of games and nobody is happier about that than us players. Most of us won’t even see or play close to even 0.1% of them but that doesn’t stop us from wanting more. Quite the opposite!
We can see new game releases each and every week but has it slowed down our appetite for more? Hardly! It comes down to a battle between providers for our attention which is fine by us.
A Need for Fresh Ideas
I personally think it’s time to see new themes because I am tired of seeing the same ones over and over, regardless of the provider. Pirates, ancient Egypt, gold Chinese statues, Aztec gold and Demi Gods. We need some fresh blood but I won’t hold my breath until we get it.
Breaking down the exact number of games they have is basically impossible since they can’t decide what is actually considered a casino game. Should I count only slots, table games, live games, Bingo etc? I just know that the providers below are all massive.
Without further ado and in no particular order, here are 3 of the biggest online game providers on the market today.
One of the industry giants is Play’n GO. Launched in 2005, the Swedes were one of the first online game developers to make the move towards mobile gaming.
You may be familiar with the “Rich Wilde” series, where you could join him on his adventures in the Book of Dead, Wandering City, Tome of Madness or the Amulet of the Dead.
Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead is a popular Play’n GO game
Then there’s another one of Play’n GO’s more popular releases with Dr. Toonz. The nutty professor who also introduced us to Energoonz, Reactoonz and Reactoonz 2.
They say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Well, the casino world’s favorite aliens came back bigger than ever in the beginning of this year in Gigantoonz.
Fun little aliens are waiting for you in Gigantoonz
I decided to swing by BitStarz to give you a taste of these colorful and cheery cyclop aliens. The stage is set with a RTP: 96.25%, very high volatility and a 4,000x max multiplier.
Get ready for an interesting mix of tiny aliens and the more of the same you can get together the better, because you want to create clusters to win.
The vocabulary in this game is more advanced than what we’re used to but perhaps it’s an indication of an advanced species. Quantum Wilds, Gargantoon Wilds and your best friend the Quantumeter are some of them but don’t worry, there’s more.
Unleash the Metamorphosis and wait for the wins to come
Fill the Quantumeter
Whenever you get a win, you will send charges to the Quantumeter that has 4 levels. It can take as much as 100 charges so keep ‘em coming.
A full Quantumeter can do wonders for your wallet
Filling the different levels will get you rewards that will help you win even more. Make sure to keep lining up wins because even though cascading wins will help things going, as soon as it ends you will be back at square one without any help from the Gargatoonz.
- Collect 25 charges triggers Disintegration
- 50 Charges will unleash Metamorphosis
- 75 Kickstarts Radiation
- The full 100 activates the Gargatoonz
Add to that Mega Gargatoonz and other Mega symbols up to 7×7 symbols big!
Thanks to all the extras I managed to get a couple of nice wins
Let the Aliens Do the Rest
The fun begins as soon as you start filling the Gargatoonz levels and I was lucky to get some nice wins.
Luckily there are no Free Spins in the classic sense because there’s so much going on already. My recommendation is to press spin, sit back and let the Aliens do the rest. That’s basically what I did and the wins kept coming.
Say hello to the King of Live Casino Games! Evolution has been around since 2006 and has always had a strong presence online.
As the company and its popularity grew it even made it onto Nasdaq Nordic in 2007. This also happened to be the year when they released the very interesting Dream Catcher
Dream Catcher is one of the more popular live games at Evolution
You would think a company like this would be content with being in the position they were but instead major steps have been taken during the last couple of years to secure a spot as one of the most dominant players the industry has ever seen.
How about the acquisition of NetEnt, Red Tiger Gaming and Big Time Gaming! This means Evolution now has a massive piece of the slot market to go along with its live casino dominance.
Spin the wheel in Crazy Time
Gonzo’s VR Treasure Hunt
I already mentioned Dream Catcher but add to that Crazy Time and Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt which was launched with VR mode in 2021!
Speed Baccarat E, almost like being in Vegas
Besides classics like Roulette, Baccarat and BlackJack, you can also play Monopoly and Deal or No Deal live with Evolution.
Grand Casino Roulette
I wanted to try out one of the Live Roulette tables and opted on Grand Casino Roulette. I’ve never tried this version before but didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary and I was right.
Would Grand Casino Roulette be a smart choice?
A Two Spin Experiment
I only gave myself two spins just to get a sense of the game and on both occasions I put my BTC on Red and Odd numbers. The safest bet is always Red or Black so I didn’t want to take any major risks.
Black 11 meant a win
The result of spin number 1 was – Black 11, meaning I won one of my bets. Even Steven as they say.
Second spin was Red 36 – also a win
Stick to the Same Bet?
Normally I wouldn’t stick with the same bet the second time around but why not try it. Maybe it could be my new thing.
The result of spin number 1 was – Red 36, meaning I won one of my bets again and still even Steven.
Turned Out to Be a Snooze Fest
I was fine with that and didn’t feel the need to continue mostly because the game was really slow. After placing my bets it felt like it took ages until they started spinning the ball. When you choose to play any game, you don’t want to wait so next time I will choose a much faster version than this one.
One of my personal favorites is Pragmatic Play. These guys know their stuff and by releasing one quality game after another, players have been lining up to play for years.
Pragmatic Play also has a wide array of products which is another reason why the name is so recognizable. Their portfolio includes slots, live casino, sportsbetting, virtual sports as well as bingo.
Popular Buffalo King Megaways
Plenty of Popular Games
Some of their most popular releases are Wolf Gold, the John Hunter series and Buffalo King Megaways. Another slot that players have been raving about is the colorful and happy Fruit Party 2, the sequel to, you guessed it – Fruit Party.
Fruit Party 2 will give you a nice warm summary feeling
Let’s Go Fishin’
For today’s Pragmatic Play game test, I chose a completely different direction. Are you ready? We’re going fishing in Fishin’ Reels at 7bit Casino!
Fishin’ reels will introduce you to a cozy life on the ocean floor and hopefully some nice wins.
Caribbean Island Soundtrack
Besides the fun surroundings and an uplifting Caribbean island soundtrack, you’ll have a pretty good setup with a promising 96.50% RTP and very high volatility.
No matter how relaxing it may be watching the starfish, shrimp, frogs and other fishes keeping you company, the goal is to get to the Free Spins.
I kept looking for Free Spins
No Luck Chuck
I’ve had success with this game before and wanted to give you a glimpse of how much fun it could be and I felt confident being able to show you the bonus round. Unfortunately these Finding Nemo wannabees had their own agenda and eventually I had to give up. It just wasn’t my day on these reels.
These aren’t the only providers worth mentioning and like I said in the beginning, it depends on the criterias and how you count. Names like Playtech and Microgaming could easily make the list as well as Yggdrasil.
Obviously I can’t name all of them and the ones listed have really made an impact on the industry. Which one is your favorite?
