Foxium Signs Exclusive Agreement with Microgaming’s Quickfire
The ever-growing games developer Microgaming has chosen to expand its game aggregator Quickfire offering with an exclusive deal with a full-service game development studio called Foxium. The 2015-established company is recognised for its great attention to detail when it comes to game development, the results of which are currently available only at the chosen few big casinos.
Foxium is based in Tallinn, Estonia, and had been previously approached by a number of investors. By finally signing a contract with Velo Partners at the beginning of this month of October, the company received the much-needed strength in the speed to market and distribution, as well as access to the RNG Foundry. The latter is a new Gaming Accelerator launched in association with Velo Partners, through which the Quickfire agreement was brokered.
The developer’s small suite of 5 video slots is available to a handful of operators, like bet365, LeoVegas, Mr Green, Betsson, Bet Victor and ComeOn. Soon accessible to players at more than 250 operators who use Quickspin’s software platform, games like The Odd Forest, The Lost Riches of Amazon, Fruitz, Lucky Bakery and Big Time Journey, are very likely to get a much bigger fan base.
The next launch of the game will also be the first Foxium video slot to launch on Quickfire. It’s a branded game called Vampire: The Masquerade – Las Vegas, which is built in association with White Wolf Entertainment. The 5-reel and 20-line slot promises to sweep players off their feet with stunning visuals, voice actors, and an expanding storyline. This also includes three different free spins rounds, as well as a picking bonus to mix it up even more. The online slot is set to go live Wednesday 1 November 2017.
Here’s a word from Andrew Clucas, Director of Quickfire at Microgaming: “We are delighted to have Foxium on board, delivering exclusive content to Quickfire at no additional cost to our operators, following the recent removal of a platform fee. We believe Foxium games will be a popular addition to the platform.”
Åke André, CEO of Foxium added: “The exclusive deal with Microgaming’s Quickfire platform provides Foxium with the chance to produce better games and reach more operators. With the extensive distribution network available through Quickfire, we believe we are in the best position to capitalise on the growing online casino market. We’re excited that our epic thriller Vampire: The Masquerade – Las Vegas, is the first game to go live following this deal. We will look to utilise the value adds Quickfire offers, such as their impressive Achievements module and gamification tools.”
