Fugaso is a small gaming software and white label site designer. So far, so unremarkable. But this company is a little unusual in at least one respect: it was formed and continues to be based in Russia. It claims to have originated back in 2001, but has only really become known outside Russia much more recently. It only came to the attention of the wider European gaming industry much more recently. This was when it started to promote its gaming services more widely, around 2015.
Fugaso may be relatively small and unknown, but this does not mean that operators have to make do with inferior games and poor licencing arrangements. The company’s platform is compatible with all the major game software providers. This means that operators can choose from a range of games from big name designers like NetEnt, Microgaming, NYX, Thunderkick and dozens more. This includes live casino games from industry leading Extreme Live Gaming.
The company also designs its own games, which given their relatively small number of sites, means that operators using Fugaso software currently have access to a range of what are in effect, exclusive games. They are pretty good too: slots like Olympia, Crazy Bot, Fear the Zombies and Plague of Egypt are the match of many more famous games and deserve a wider audience. There are a couple of dozen games in the range – my favourite has to be the very topical “Trump It”, which features The Donald dressed as a Jester, making life difficult for former American President Obama and current Russian President Putin.
The platform is compatible with play on any kind of device, from the most compact smartphone to the widest screened desktop PC or Mac. Fugaso codes its games using the latest HTML5 programming and is compatible with all the current commonly used operating systems, such as Android, Apple and Windows.
The company’s software and casino platform is not widely available to United Kingdom based players at the time of writing. However, its unique quality and practicality mean that the Fugaso name may well become much more familiar to British and European players in the not too distant future.
