Let’s talk about your games! We’re curious to learn more about the Musketeer Megaways slot. How challenging was the development process of this game and how complex are the implemented features?
"Musketeer Megaways was a really fun project for us to work on as it was our first game with a quad reel set. This game actually has two game modes to play - the single reel game mode "all for one" and the quad mode "one 4 all".
This was a deviation from what we typically produce in a slot game but felt it fit the theme amazing and opened new exciting ways for the player to engage. I'd say it was fairly complex but we are lucky at iSoftBet to have such a great team that welcomes complexity in our projects!"
Can you give our readers a short introduction to the Merlin’s Revenge Megaways slot and why they should play it?
"Merlin's Revenge Megaways is our follow-up title to fan favourite Morgana Megaways. In this new version, the player is treated to cascading reels which we really felt elevated the unique feature whereby you collect symbols in order to boost your max megaways.
There is something so simplistic about just needing certain symbols dropping in any position to progress up the win ladder. You were always a few symbols away from the next progression - it makes it very exciting!"
And what about the Golden Jockers Double Up slot? What was your inspiration for this release?
"With Golden Jokers we wanted to breathe new life into the popular Joker theme and spice it up by adding a variety of bonus buys and side bets. With the Double Up side bet, the player literally has double the chance to win the bonus! The iconic Joker graphics have been stapled in gaming since pub and bar land-based machines across the world.
Combining this retro style with classic gameplay we reached audiences far and wide. We enhanced the joker to be covered in Gold to make it more striking and noticeable on the reels, as the joker symbols are stacked on the reels it becomes a real wow moment when lots of these land on the reels together!"
Your games are filled with innovative features and mechanics like Megaways and Hold & Win. Do you plan on releasing new titles with other features?
"Yes of course! We have plenty of new features on the way. Not only that we also have new and innovative twists on our market-leading Hold & Win titles and Megaways too. I can't give away too much now but keep your eye on our upcoming releases!"
What is the Game Aggregation Platform?
"We offer a market-leading Games Aggregation Platform (GAP) solution that allows operators to access a vast library of innovative, exciting and revenue-maximising content via single API integration.

Ocean Hunter slot - new product from iSoftBet
What would you say is the most important aspect of a successful game?
"I'd say that the math is the most important aspect of a slot game. without it the rest of the game would fall down. You could have the best-looking artwork in the industry, or the best features but if they are simply not paying and playing correctly then you'll find the game will not succeed as it should."
What product of iSoftBet are you proud of the most?
"I am proud of many things here at iSoftBet but if we are talking about a singular product then I'd say it has to be Gold Digger - our original Hold & Win game. We innovated on a respin concept and added additional win layers and boosters that the players really resonated too. Our prospector, Gus, on the side of the reels helps the player with a variety of modifiers. Overall we felt this game ticked all boxes for our players."
Could you share some insider info with us, what else can we expect from iSoftBet in the following months?
"Without giving too much away... players can expect to be swimming with sharks in the deep ocean, enjoying tropical cocktails on the beach, blast off into "sweet" outer space and also see the return of the Sheriff of Nottingham!"
