Stormcraft and Microgaming Join ForcesHarry Coulter | 21 Jun 2018
Microgaming has recently revealed an exclusive new partnership with boutique software developer Stormcraft Studios. The deal is the latest step in the iGaming giant’s efforts to expand its market share through collaboration with numerous independent gaming studios.
Earlier in 2018, Microgaming revealed its plans to expand its operations through a network of smaller partner studios, which it kicked off with a deal with Triple Edge Studios. The firm clearly intends to follow through with these plans, too, as its latest move has unveiled another similar collaboration, this time with the experts of Stormcraft Studios.
The Isle of Man firm’s goals to construct a network of independent studios seem crystal clear. The company is aiming to cover a larger portion of the market through an increase in new game releases, as well as more diversity in terms of what each of its partner studios creates for its ever-growing gaming portfolio.
Exclusive Content for Microgaming
Under the partnership, Stormcraft has thus become Microgaming’s exclusive partner, providing its content only to Microgaming’s casino operators. According to Terence Igesund, a Stormcraft spokesman, his company aims to focus first and foremost on overall user experience in their future releases to add even more value to its brand and its reputation.
This is a sentiment shared by the Microgaming team, which believes strongly in the capabilities of the team members at Stormcraft. The firm is taking more and more notice of the studio’s dedication for creating quality, immersive games, and have noted that it is looking forward to the future of the exclusive new partnership between them.
Fortunium Mobile Slot Revealed
On players’ sides, they will not have to wait very long to discover what the two gaming experts are creating under their new collaboration. The two firms’ first video slot resulting from the cooperation already hit online and mobile casinos on June 20, offering a captivating world of Steampunk fun for all Microgaming fans.
The Fortunium online slot was initially revealed at ICE Totally Gaming 2018, boasting a unique theme and an enticing mix of stunning graphics, quirky characters and lucrative bonus rounds. Some of the title’s more exotic additions include player-controlled win boosters for a skill-based element, along with mystery symbols and stacked icons to provide big winning potential.
The visually gorgeous game is also packed with features, and brings a new level of player interaction to Microgaming’s portfolio. The title is also designed with mobile players in mind, and is fully optimized for a wide range of smartphone and tablet models.
