Unlike the majority of gaming software design outfits, this youthful company prefers to focus on the more traditional side of the casino. Noisy, glitzy slots are not to be found on this organisation’s roster. Instead, the expertise here is concentrated purely on the table game side of things.
Felt Gaming appear to have achieved this by an amazing attention to detail, concentrating on attempting to bring the atmosphere and feel of a real casino to the artificial and relatively sterile world of online gaming. The basic idea is to try to re-create the vibe of a 1950s Vegas casino. This is tough to do in real life, let alone on the digitalised pixels of your smartphone screen.
Yet they really have done a decent job – hence the widespread industry acclaim and increasing availability of their games. The cards have a real life look to them, as if they could be the sort of high quality packs found in a real casino. Maybe a linen finish? The card design graphics are as detailed as possible to give a realistic impression, with the sound effects also adding to the luxurious atmosphere. The casino chips seem to be manufactured from traditional clay, rather than the more modern “cheap as chips” plastic (pun intended). And with a company name like Felt Gaming, the tables themselves also seem to have that brushed felt feel.
How this is all possible with the magic of software design seems a miracle to me, but then again I’d still be using Windows XP if it was still supported! Suffice to say they’ve managed it, so just enjoy the magic.
Felt Gaming design their games in both single player and multi-player versions. You can also play them on any kind of device. Various formats of Blackjack, Poker and Roulette are all provided for discerning online casinos, and they all display the high quality design ethic that the company has become renowned for. But it is the Blackjack which really does stand out. With each individual format offering different side bet options and slightly varied rules there always seems to be a new take on what is a relatively traditional game. The intuitive game play also adds to the quality of the player experience when playing these games.
In fact, one of Felt’s Blackjack formats was nominated for the EGR Game of the Year Award in 2016. This is tough to achieve with an award normally dominated by slots. So you don’t have to just take my word for it: even the gaming industry’s insiders recognise the quality of this new company’s excellent table games.
