As part of Slotswise's interview series with iGaming content providers, we've had the chance to speak with Yulia Aliakseeva, Game Producer at BGaming. BGaming is a creative and fast-growing company with a passion for gaming and extensive expertise in the industry. BGaming has more than 20 years of experience in the iGaming industry, so it was great to get insights from such an established company.
Yulia shared exclusive details about BGaming's slots and upcoming releases, which we're sure you'll find fantastic. So if you want to learn more about BGaming and its games, continue reading our interview!
Welcome, Yulia! Thank you for participating in our exclusive interview series. Could you start off by introducing yourself and BGaming to our readers?
"My name is Yulia Aliakseeva, and I'm a Game Producer at BGaming, a game development studio that creates content for the iGaming industry. If you're familiar with online slots, you've probably heard of our hit titles Elvis Frog in Vegas and Aloha Elvis, which rocked the casinos' lobbies from the first day of release! As a game producer at BGaming, I'm responsible for developing games, particularly slots."
Your gaming portfolio consists of slots, table games, dice games, crash games, fast games, and more. How much time does it take to create a game, from idea to release?
"It may vary from game to game and depends on many factors, including features, mechanics, and design ideas. But I'd say it takes 4-6 months to create a game from a rough idea. The most extended and intensive stages are art creation and programming."
Let's talk about your games! Could you tell our readers more about the Wild Cash x9990 slot?
"Our first, call-it classic Wild Cash slot was released in spring and was an absolute blast! Players loved it, and the slot became popular. So we've started thinking about how to make a successful slot even more successful.
Since one of the main focuses of the Wild Cash slot was x1-x999 multiplier, which rewarded players with massive wins, we decided to increase its win potential in a new release and add a multiplied multiplier. You've heard it right :) This is how Wild Cash x9990 appeared.
The additional multiplier can result in maximum wins of 9990 times a stake! Wild Cash x9990 proved that even though simple gameplay is not for everyone, classic fruit slots remain popular."
Another game that caught our attention is Elvis Frog Trueways. What can players expect from this release?
"The new release is a much-awaited sequel of the Elvis Frog series that follows our previous hits Elvis Frog in Vegas and Aloha King Elvis.
This particular Elvis Frog will be truly special since it goes with unique TRUEWAYS™ mechanics, where ways give players more chances to win instead of win lines. The maximum number of possible ways to win in this new slot is 262 144. Overall, Elvis Frog TRUEWAYS seems to collect all the existing features.
The atmosphere of the slot will be familiar to those who played Elvis Frog in Vegas and a must-see for those who didn't. It gives the vibes of rousing parties and entertainment. Elvis Frog Trueways will appear in online casinos on October 20th, so don't miss it!"
In your own opinion, what are the key reasons behind your games being received so well amongst the players?
"We're striving to create games based on players' preferences. BGaming's fundamental value is that the player and player choice always come first. Therefore we constantly analyze and study players' preferences to make unique and attractive products for everyone.
Real players test the games we produce and provide feedback that helps us continuously improve. The RTP of our games is usually pretty high. Quality design is our hallmark. Our design team puts a lot of effort into characters' creation, pays attention to details, constantly experiments with the graphics, and implements the best practices to make our games eye-catching.
BGaming's team includes professionals with 20+ years in the iGaming sphere, which bring vast improvement to work on each stage of game development."
If you could choose one, what would you say is your favorite BGaming slot being released so far?
"Such a popular but complicated question. I'll answer as a game producer - my favourite games are those loved by players. One of the most successful games released by BGaming recently was Wild Cashx9990, and I love this slot very much. The gameplay is straightforward yet exciting!"
Could you give us a sneak peek of what's coming next from BGaming?
"As I've said, we're releasing a new slot headlined by Elvis Frog character and brand-new TRUEWAYS mechanics. Another focus is the development and growth of cascading slots portfolio.
At the beginning of the year, we released a set of casual games, trendy among crypto casino players. The package now comes with top-of-the-range multiplayer crash Space XY, plus the four most popular games: Plinko XY, Rocket Dice XY, Heads, and Tails XY, Minesweeper XY.
Currently, we're working on new titles, such as Limbo XY, Keno XY, and Mines XY, to enhance the portfolio of casual games. What unites all these games? Simple rules and rapid results.
If we switch from the game releases to other BGaming projects, I'll mention the Streamers Race and other initiatives for the streamers' community development."
Thank you for your time! Is there anything you would like to share with us before we say goodbye?
"Play quality slots and play responsibly!"
