September 15, 2018 Staff Writer Industry News, Microgaming 20

After about two years of devoted and thorough preparation, Microgaming is finally launching its brand new Slingshot Studios enterprise. The online casino games and software developer has announced the premiere of the new and long-planned venture for this year, and confirmed the release of its first ever Cash of Kingdoms video slot.

New exclusive content has been revealed already, but the only title we have heard is the Medieval-themed slot. Following the footsteps of Stormcraft Studios, Slingshot Studios is to be an independent game studio as well, according to the Microgaming spokesperson.

The Isle of Man-based provider has said that the Slingshot Studios project consists of “a crew of gambling industry veterans” as well as “new blood and everything in between”. As a result, that will manufacture “highly entertaining and compelling products exclusively for Microgaming and [its] customers.”

Skyrocketing in October

Cash of Kingdoms will live through its debut in October this year, while it has been leaked to the public in February at ICE Totally Gaming exhibition in London. All licenced iGaming operators will be granted access to the game from the first week of the next month. What we know about it for now is that it is a 15-payline, 5-reel video slot that features themes and symbols like knights, magicians, archers and bombardiers hovering over the board. The newly-presented Invading Wilds feature will appear in both base and free spins games.

John Coleman, Microgaming CEO, has said that the release will expand the parent’s “extensive digital portfolio”. The new entity will work towards developing original games with exciting engines and features that will target specific markets and player profiles. In a few words, Coleman has compressed what the deal is about.

“The content it has coming is fantastic and its drive to create and challenge is incredible. Slingshot Studios is the latest in a number of game studios to be announced as exclusive providers to Microgaming and we look forward to unveiling more content from it in the coming months.”
