How would you describe your experience at ICE Totally Gaming 2015?
ICE is the main show we look forward to every year at Play’n GO. 2015 was no exception! It’s another great opportunity for us to touch base with our customers and meet new potential customers. We enjoy showcasing our new casino games and other products that we’ve launched and also sharing what’s yet to come.
All in all, ICE 2015 was a mega hit for us! We were overwhelmed by all the positive feedback. Then, of course, we were overjoyed to win the “Mobile Product of the Year” award at the International Gaming Awards at Savoy.
You develop your games in Flash for the web and in HTML5 for distribution through smartphones and tablet devices. What are the advantages of using these technologies?
We develop each of our new games in both technologies so players can enjoy them on any device – on their computers or on their mobile devices. Using Flash for the web simply gives our players the best gaming experience possible. And frankly, we use HTML5 because it is currently the best option out there for mobile devices. It enables smartphone and tablet players to enjoy the same rich animations and smooth performance that PC players are accustomed to.HTML5 has become better and better over time, just as smartphones and tablets have improved over time.
Do you have separate teams developing games in these two technologies?
Not really. Our Play’n GO designers and developers are multi-talented and are adept at both technologies. We do have different project teams, but we share expertise and collaborate under the same roof. The synergistic effect is magical; it really helps to enhance all our products.
Are you going to continue using Flash and HTML5 in the future, or do you foresee using other technologies?
We’re going to stick with Flash and HTML5 for now at least. We do see that the use of Flash will fade over time, but we’re not quite there yet.
You announced the release of some exciting new features and five new games. Can you tell us a bit about them?
On February 24, we’ll release our new Pimped slot. It has a striking hip-hop theme and plenty of bling! It also includes an attractive WinSpins® bonus feature. In the first and second quarter, we also plan to crack open the Easter Eggs slot just in time to celebrate the spring. Our Tower Quest slot will have a fantasy RPG theme and a unique card-collecting bonus game. Adventure seekers can look forward to the Golden Legend and Wild North slots. We’re also busy developing a Mystery Jackpots feature to allow our clients to set up their own progressive jackpots in any game.
What are your other plans for 2015 and beyond?
We have big plans in store for 2015, and we’re already working hard to meet and exceed our objectives. I’ve mentioned a few of our upcoming games. Simply, we will continue to deliver innovative games of the utmost quality and live up to our motto: Play’n GO, The Gaming Pro. Our goal is always to deliver the games that online casino players want most, using the latest and greatest technologies.
