Our passion for Megaways™ is what drives our website forward, so we are always looking to gain more information or get an extra insight in to what it is that makes the providers of these slots tick. Today we chat with Relax Gaming about their Megaways™ journey so far.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Relax Gaming, and in particular Simon Hammon the Chief Product Officer at Relax Gaming for taking the time to talk with us today.
Q. Hi Simon, Would you be able to give us a brief background on Relax Gaming from how you started up until the present day?
A. Relax was established since 2010 and we are excited to celebrate our 10 Year anniversary early next year. Whilst Relax has been around for a long time it is largely the last 18 months where we have grown exponentially. Relax started its journey with a Poker product and also Bingo a few years later. The casino heritage comes from 2013 where Relax was the platform behind such suppliers as Quickspin and others.
In the last 18 months we have grown with a wide range of suppliers, including Big Time Gaming but have also started to launch our own content with Temple Tumble being a flagship launch and innovative Megaways™ concept.
Q. You already have some Megaways™ slot titles under your belt, did you always plan to obtain the license from the outset? Or was it decided after seeing the success that other providers were having with the gaming engine?
A. The Megaways™ license was discussed at the same time as our agreement with Big Time Gaming to distribute their titles. At the time we had a game cooking and felt that it fitted the Megaways™ mechanic in a unique and different way which is how Temple Tumble was born. Naturally as part of our agreement other partners soon started to launch new titles with us which have all been met well with the players.
Q. What has the feedback been like so far on the Megaways™ titles that you have released?
A. Megaways™ is a top mechanic in the market and it's exciting to see how different designs and themes have been applied to the classic game format. The mechanic itself can lend to new interpretations and applications which is also exciting and the Temple Tumble iteration is not like any typical mechanic you can see on the market. Feedback generally has been very positive and anyone who can innovate in the mechanic draws extra attention.
Q. What does the team at Relax Gaming believe makes a top Megaways™ Slot when it comes to grabbing the attention of players?
A. Megaways™ is always going to be an interesting game to the players as it has built a great reputation for high paced mechanics and win potential. A great Megaways™ slot will be one that has a strong theme, a game flow that suits the mechanic and if viable a dash of innovation.
Q. We love to see something different when it comes to Megaways™ Slots. The approach that you took to trigger the feature on Temple Tumble Megaways™ was new to anything that we had seen so far, do you have any future plans for adding more unique features to upcoming releases to make your slots stand out from the crowd?
A. There are a lot of new Megaways™ titles on the market so its highly important to Relax to stand out. Temple Tumble did just that but we are also looking at new and exciting ways to present the mechanic not only from us but also our partners. There are some very unique and interesting combinations in the pipe so watch this space.
Q. Your deal distributing BTG’s content has now been extended to include even more titles, what does that say about your relationship with Big Time Gaming? And Relax Gaming as a platform provider?
A. We have established a great working relationship with Big Time Gaming and now are extending the portfolio not only to cover existing classic titles but upcoming new ones. The partnership I believe has been a very fruitful one for both sides. What is important for any supplier is a reliable platform combined with speed and efficiency that ultimately benefits the players. Relax Gaming has a wide distribution of customers with a hunger to have the top Big Time Gaming titles – our goal together is to ensure that we can provide a happy delivery for both.
Q. To finish off have you got anything you can let us know about future Megaways™ releases?
A. Of course we have some of the classics coming through and also some of our Silverbullet partners and Powered By partners have just released some new Megaways™ titles. There are some exciting innovative products in the works and we will announce those shortly so watch this space.
