Exclusive Q&A with Andrei Vajdyuk, the head of business of NetGame Entertainment
Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

European Gaming Media is conducting an interview with Andrei Vajdyuk, the head of business of NetGame Entertainment, about a new online casino provider, which is growing in the iGaming market through the first steps of business development.

Can you please tell us a bit about the company, when it was founded and what was the vision at the start?

Having started in 2012 with a group of three enthusiasts from landbased gaming, during the past 7 years we have accumulated the experience and built up a team to make a consecutive transition to online, establishing a new brand of online casino software – NetGame Entertainment.
During the last 2 years, our team has been working on the HTML5 platform, which went live in June 2019 with 30 games in the portfolio for 2019 year. We’ve experienced rises and falls with management processes during that period, which has finally allowed us to be capable of releasing one new game per month.
Today, we are a young game provider on the market, producing an innovative, excellent quality slots that are really impressive for both – our partners and players, that makes us a quickly growing game developer. By the way, everyone is eligible to try a demo version on the netgamenv.com website to be convinced the truth I said.
NetGame Entertainment aimed to become a well-known on the market and loved by players brand.

As a gaming company in this highly competitive market, it isn’t always easy to keep up with the trends. What is it that NetGame Entertainment focuses on the most and what is it that makes your products stand out from the rest?

To be competitive, NetGame Entertainment follows the evolving igaming market trends, adopting them into our slots. But I would like to highlight that NetGame slots are created using the original mathematical models and unique bonus mechanics, exciting art and brick and mortar casino themes that immerse players into the real casino atmosphere.
Another of NetGame`s standout feature is a Mystery Progressive Jackpot tool. All slots are linked to single or multiple operator websites and participation is built on players’ contributions. The Jackpot offers four different progressive levels – Red, Silver, Gold, and Diamond, where the Red reward is the least and Diamond is the highest.
There are only a couple of examples. But to be competitive, we pursue the tactic of creating outstanding products, investing in player’s love, not just simple promotions.

Is there a particular slot that you, as well as a team, are especially proud of? What games would you say really hit it off with the players and the operators?

Of course, our team is in the process of building a diversified gaming portfolio. At this moment, we have 24 games live and 30 games are expected to be released till the end of 2019.

Our first game was released on June 2019 – the Golden Skulls slot.
And before the game discovered the world we have come a long way.
Our development process was started from scratch and it required more than one year for the team building, effective management and workflow set up. All in all, after fixing all the bugs, the first game was released. Today we are proud of that period because we have built up the expertise in falls and rises and reached the speed for a new game release to one month.
Among our next the most popular game titles are Vegas Skills, Jungle 2, Diamond Shot, Magic Tree, African King, Magic Dragons and others.
There are also some new slots, expected to be released until December 2019 – Luxor Relics, Dancing Lanterns, Zen Zen Cash, MMA Legends, Fruit Cash Hold n’ Link and others. We will show our new as well as the popular slots at the SIGMA, SAGSE and G2E exhibitions in November-December 2019.

How big of a role do player feedback and suggestions play in the process of development of new games? Do you keep tabs on the market and try to develop games in accordance with what seems to be the most popular at the time or do you try to follow your own vision and create content that you believe players will like regardless of what seems to be popular at the moment?

Of course, our team pursues the latest trends that appear in the igaming market. We use it for creating and actualizing ideas of how to bet on competition among game development companies and propose better quality graphics or more engaging game mechanics, for example.
With NetGame’s growing market awareness and the number of casino operators and players, our strategy is going to have changes – we will shift our focus to the players’ feedback and suggestions.

Is there a particular market that you’re focused on in geographical terms or are you trying to be more of an all-around developer that caters to players from all over the globe?

We are focused on building a diversified gaming portfolio for .com – markets: Asia, Latam, CIS, and Arab/Turkey markets. We use popular Asian themes, Vegas style graphics (Vegas Hit, Diamond Shot) for LATAM and Africa, and already released 5 Fruit games + 8 more(Fruit) coming for CIS and Turkey.

Every company seems to have its own idea about what makes the perfect slots. What would you say this is for NetGame? Is it the graphics, bonus features, plotlines? What do you believe is the most important from the players’ perspective?

I believe, the main idea of making NetGame slots perfect lies in crafting games, enjoyable by its unique bonus mechanics. Almost every slot has its Free Spins feature or some others like Re-Spins, Pick-and-Click game, Progressive Jackpots, stacked and expanding Wilds, Multi-way games, Multiplier symbols, Cascading reels and others.
NetGame slots are oriented on players with different playing preferences. And our team experiments with graphics and math, making slots for Starters, as well as producing high-volatile slots that emulate a real casino atmosphere for the experienced gamblers.

What’s next for NetGame Entertainment? Are there any games currently under development that we could look forward to? And, on a greater scale, what’s the company’s plan moving forward? Where do you see the business going in the coming months and years?

Let’s start with some of our future game releases.
The next game, MMA Legends, is planned to be released in November 2019. This game is special because of its Bet on Game Feature, where the player bets on 1 of 4 selected symbols and on a chosen number of spins and if the bet gambled wins, the player is rewarded with a win multiplier per bet.
The second game is planned to be released in December 2019. This is Wild Lanterns slot, which is interesting because of its Flying Wilds feature. The Lanterns symbol flies over the reel in the basic and Free Spins mode and replaces regular symbols into Wilds. We call this feature Lanterns Boost.

What concerns us about NetGame company’s plan moving forward, I can answer this way: we’ve built up a team and accumulated experience. We’ve crafted an impressive library of games for a short time and a good few are still in the pipeline. We’ve started marketing and promotion via game shows. And very soon our brand and products will become known on the market. This is our plan 🙂

Thanks for your time Andrei, and we wish you all the best!!!

Anti-Kidnapping Group of the Philippine National Police has reported 42 cases of kidnapping related either to casinos or POGOs in the first 11 months of 2019.

The kidnappings, which primarily involved Chinese nationals, included 36 casino-related crimes and six linked with POGOs. Of those, 21 cases have been solved with 21 people rescued, while 58 suspects have been arrested. Instances of casino-related kidnappings appear to have slowed in the two months.

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat issued a statement that aimed at reassuring tourists that the Philippines is safe to visit.

“It’s very much (safe). We will not promote a place where we know it’s not safe. Why? If something happens to even a single tourist, it destroys the whole Philippines. We’re not only in touch with the PNP but also the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the local government units. It is to our advantage to make sure that the tourists are safe so that when they come to a particular destination, they’re assured nothing bad will happen to them, that they are safe and secure,” she said.
