International software provider Fugaso, whose stellar slots are attracting significant operator and player attention, report that the company has been thriving throughout 2019, picking up a host of new partners and launching a number of blockbuster slots titles as well as being nominated in awards shows.

Fugaso is currently on a roll, having recently been announced as a finalist in two AskGamblers Award categories which play to the company’s strengths, Best Slots and Best Software Provider, in what is considered the world’s most prestigious casino awards.

The road to success over the last 3 years for Fugaso has been one driven by innovative in-house technology that is driving growth for the company and manifested in proprietary breakthroughs such as their ‘Rich Free Spins’ feature, which allows operators and casinos to hand out free spins to players with a multiplier on them which provides excitement with the prospect of potentially highly generous payouts. No other games manufacturer is currently offering ‘Rich Free Spins’, a key differentiator in Fugaso’s bulging technology vault.

Backed by a qualified team of iGaming experts Fugaso started out in 2016 by setting ambitious targets and launched with a 15 games-a-year structure which they quickly surpassed and by the end of 2018 began consolidating the design and engineering end of the studio with breakthrough blockbuster TrumpIt Deluxe at the beginning of the year which was launched at ICE.

The rapidly expanding Fugaso portfolio of titles is available via the GrooveGaming platform as well as from Soft Gamings, Soft Swiss, Digitain, EveryMatrix, BetConstruct , IGG, 1XBet and Parimatch, amongst many others. Releases so far this year include Trump It Deluxe, Wild Rodeo, Magic Spinners, Fugaso Airlines, Stoned Joker, Imhotep Manuscript, Book of Tattoo II and blockbuster Cleopatra’s Diary, which is in the running for Best Slots at the AskGamblers Awards. Summer hits included Deep Blue Sea and Imhotep Manuscript, which was also in the running with the AskGambler’s Awards.

All Fugaso games are available in 12 languages and can be adapted for any additional language, every game is supported by all devices, currencies and cryptocurrencies. One of the promotional tools available from the slick slots manufacturer is the Fugaso Jackpot Series Games, covering nearly 40 titles and the popular progressive are attracting substantial interest with 6-figure jackpots providing players with great opportunity of winning and operators a phenomenal promotional tool.

The entire portfolios of almost 70 Fugaso HTML5 games have been developed under the remote technical standards of the UK Gambling Commission as well as the Maltese Gaming Authority. Fugaso is planning to grow towards a much larger number of jurisdictions with many more certifications to expand their offerings further.

In what has been a very successful third year for Fugaso, the popular sequel Book Of Tattoo II has been breaking records in terms of increased player activity, a jump in unique players per session as well as a significant rise in gaming durability.

To celebrate its major milestone, Fugaso has announced that it would be offering a very special birthday commercials for the first 5 companies who integrate the expanded games portfolio, which can be viewed at www.fugaso.com/games.

said: “We’re very excited to reach our third anniversary milestone and to have gained so much business this year along with the market trust that goes with visibility in major awards. We are grateful to all those who have placed their trust in us, it’s a WIN:WIN situation and now we’ve got the kind of momentum which we could have only dreamed of when we took those first steps 3 years ago.”

The world of gambling – as seen by millennials and Generation Z

The world of gambling - as seen by millennials and Generation Z
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The generation gap is a subject of discussion that continues to be relevant year on year. Why is it that those born since 1981 are so important to the gambling industry and its future? According to Betinvest COO Max Dubossarsky, every new generation contributes to the development of the entertainment industry, raising the standards for how gambling products and services are created.

Millennials caught the peak of digital technology at a young age, at a time when some of the Generation Z babies were being born already with a smartphone in hand.

The issue of continuity of the generations carries from one age to the next and takes on new dimensions. The gambling industry has its finger on the pulse, aware that the characteristics and preferences of each generation provide detailed information about current and potential players.

During recent years, society has had its eyes fixed on the so-called “millennials” – Generation Y – born between 1981 and 1996, and Generation Z – the “New Silent Generation” – born after 1995—1996. Why are their views and way of thinking important to the gambling industry? Mainly because millennials and Gen Z are products of the digital age.

Modern-day innovations, which previous generations could only have dreamed about, are now the norm for Gen Y and Gen Z. So if it is hard to amaze millennials with high-tech “perks”, it is nigh on impossible to surprise Gen Z – who have fully adapted into the world of 3D technology, VR and AR.

To attract and retain the attention of young players and avoid their games becoming a boring alternative to others on the market, operators created products that borrow features from videogames.

The millennial generation is the first to have grown up with videogames, so their way of life has become one of the reasons for developing online gambling.

This first “internet generation” divides their lives between an online and an offline reality. Many things have become possible to do with the use of gadgets, without the need for physical input. In contrast to well-off baby boomers who were big fans of visiting casinos and the luxury entertainment of gambling, millennials lived in unstable economic conditions and are therefore notable for their rationalism. As a result, they prefer more affordable entertainment, including activities which do not involve leaving the house. The gambling industry grasped the attitude of the new generation and changed its approach accordingly: the first gambling websites started to emerge, and the big casinos began organising events with new kinds of entertainment, such as concerts by famous musicians and DJs, opening exclusive malls, and the like.

Another important move in the battle to earn the attention of younger players is product customisation, responsive design, and additional gamification during the gaming process.

Gen Z, who more or less stormed into the digital age fresh from the cradle, have tough demands. In the modern-day world of gambling, it is no longer enough for games to have just high resolution, gripping storylines and 3D effects. Players want light, fun and quality solutions with compatibility across different devices, secure data and convenient payment methods. Products which cannot easily be adapted to the specific characteristics of regional markets lose their standing and risk being unable to keep up with the competition.

Millennials and Gen Z tend to be cautious in what they do online.

Almost every user leaves behind a digital footprint, which is analysed by marketing experts. It “shows” the user’s interests and gives clues as to what the potential customer might like, helping operators to cater to each player better. But at the same time, data confidentiality and secure payment have become two key issues that users consider when completing any online activities.

It is safe to say that each new generation has contributed – and continues to contribute – towards the change in attitudes towards gambling. Each generation develops the industry by demanding more, thereby raising the standards for how gambling products and services are created.

Because of the rapid development in digital technology, today’s players live in two worlds – an online and an offline world. With the huge amount of offers available, they select the products that are easily understandable. Time has become too expensive to waste on figuring out how things work, especially when it comes to the entertainment industry. Their leisure time is therefore crucial for operators to consider.
