SEGA Returns To Its Roots With SEGA SlotsHarry Coulter | 24 Jan 2018
SEGA has always been an icon of the console video gaming world. However, something many of its fans may not know is that the gaming giant first started out in the casino gaming industry – and now, SEGA has returned to its roots with the creation of a collection of progressive slots and its very own mobile casino app.
Lovers of SEGA’s classic gaming titles will be thrilled with the new mobile app and slots games, which are actually based on its smash hit console games from the 1980’s and 90’s. SEGA Slots boasts many of the legend’s games in slots form, including fan favourites like Super Monkey Ball, Shinobo, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Samba De Amigo.
After many successful years in console gaming, SEGA has seemingly realised that the future lies in mobile gaming – much like the countless mobile slots developers who have gone the same route. With mobile gaming now surpassing traditional desktop gaming in both popularity and earnings, SEGA’s choice to invest its future into the world of mobile entertainment is expected to pay off greatly in the future as the mobile revolution continues to take hold.
App Now Available For Android
The new slots from SEGA have been developed in partnership with Fox Club games, and offer all of players’ favourite SEGA characters along with the chance to win real cash prizes. The SEGA Slots mobile app is now available on both Apple’s iTunes store and Google Play, compatible with numerous iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
As mentioned above, history has repeated itself for SEGA, who started out in Japan during the 1950’s as a manufacturer of slot machines for the casino gambling market. It was only in the 80’s when the company rose to fame in the console and arcade gaming markets, sensing a change in the winds with the emergence of a new era of video gaming.
About SEGA’s Western Operations
Sadly, SEGA’s last console system (the SEGA Dreamcast) was discontinued in 2002, but the firm soon switched from its role as a console manufacturer to a new path as a third party software developer for casino brands across the globe.
The gaming behemoth’s mobile games division was opened later in 2009, and has been active ever since. SEGA’s mobile gaming division in the Western World is headquartered in San Francisco, USA, and the firm has dedicated game development studios – Demiurge Studios and Ignited Artists - in America as well. Furthermore, SEGA also operates the Hardlight Studio in Europe, making its presence in the world of gaming truly international.
