SpinPlay is a small studio, which like many similar companies was born from cooperation between experienced professionals who had worked in many of the casino giants before. The company is one of the few gaming companies to have emerged from the USA. They were also one of the last independent studios to join the Quickfire platform before it was sold to Games Global.
The company produces online slots. These offer all the modern niceties, but certainly also draw a lot of inspiration from classic land-based casino gaming. If you’re after that Las Vegas glamour, what better way to experience it than by playing games designed by a Las Vegas -based company?
The company was established in 2019, and remains still in its original location of Las Vegas. Pretty much immediately the company was signed up for the Microgaming Quickfire platform. This allowed them to reach the vast majority of casino players even before they had a single game out.
Now, as is often the case with small studios, especially ones that are relatively fresh, there isn’t much news and history to report on. The only milestones are releases of new games, which tend to happen every few months.
However, if you are interested in the background of the personnel at the company, and the influential people who put the team together, check out our exclusive interview.
Despite the company being one of the latest to join the cadre of independent studios, they have managed to build up a selection of games that is considerably larger than what their brethren studios have put together. And given that their release schedule is pacing up, we can expect the selection to grow considerably in the coming years. And who knows, the company might soon grow to become a medium-sized producer.
Currently, only slots are available, and this is unlikely to change in the near future. Take a look at the following popular games:
- Amazing Link Hades
- 3 Lucky Rainbows
- 9 Blazing Diamonds Wowpot
- Action Boost Amber Island
- Dragon’s Cache
- Wild Link Frenzy
- Diamond King Jackpots
- Roman Power
- Almighty Aztec
- Atlantis Rising
- Alice in WildLand
- Bank Vault
- Diamond Discovery
- Wolf Call
- Adventure Piggypays El Dorado
If you’ve got a keen eye, you might have noticed that there are certain buzzwords used. These refer to different mechanics that are used in the games. Before we tell you a bit more about those, let’s have a look at how the games function and play out in general.
There’s heavy reliance on normal paylines, which is something we would expect from a company that draws inspiration from the original slot machines. The games tend to be somewhat uniform on their top wins, although obviously there is more than enough variation otherwise. The RTPs are well within the modern range we are used to with online slots.
How Are They Different?
The company focuses heavily on mathematics. Whilst designing top-notch graphics is no easy task either, it’s the mathematics that really make a difference when it comes to online slots. There is no other way to come up with new mechanics, bonuses, or features, than to simply make the calculations.
The symbols and backgrounds do look good, and they function pretty well on mobile phones and desktops alike, but don’t expect the latest 3D experience. Sound effects and music are likewise entertaining, but ultimately nothing that stands out of the ordinary.
Luckily, attention has been paid to features. Some of these are tied to fixed jackpots, which we will talk about more in a bit. Bonus spins are obviously something you’ll encounter relatively often. They’ll never show up alone though, as simple modifiers like special symbols, multipliers, extra wilds, and further features accompany the spins. Occasionally you are served a selection of choices to pick which way you want the bonus spins to play out.
And whilst you will run into various other modifiers, action boosts, and other specials that can give you a win here and there, it’s the bonus spins in all their forms that play the major role in about all of these online slots. Apart from the jackpots of course.
All About Fixed Jackpots
Whether we are talking about Amazing Link, WowPot, Action Boost, or even any of the normal games, there always seem to be fixed jackpots present. And yes, even the game with one of the biggest progressive jackpots in the world comes with its own fixed jackpots.
Usually, these come via special mechanics like Amazing Link. This feature fires up whenever six or more Amazing symbols show up during the same spin. All of these symbols will be locked in place, and the player is given three respins. Each time a new Amazing symbol lands the respins are reset. You can win either cash prizes, or the fixed jackpots. There’s also an additional multiplier feature, which applies random multipliers to all the collected cash prizes at the end of the feature.
Other games have fixed jackpots built into different features. Usually, it’s all about collecting certain symbols, which then give a chance to go after one of the jackpots. In those cases, as well as in Amazing Link, the maximum win is 5000 times the total bet. If you’re after a bigger jackpot, try the progressive WowPot.
The Legal Side of Things
If you’ve read our reviews about other similar studios that signed up for the Quickfire platform, such as Fortune Factory Studios or Stormcraft Studios, you probably know how things go.
And in case you don’t know what we are talking about, the situation is quite simple. The studio makes the games, and the Quickfire platform, owned by Games Global, takes care of distribution. And just like they take care of connecting the games to online casinos, they ensure that all the licences and other details are in great order. Thanks to this, you can find these games in hundreds of online casinos that accept Canadian players.
