If ever there was a model example of a thriving, innovative brand new software design company, this must surely be it. Founded only a few years ago, in 2013, this small London based start-up has already forged itself quite a reputation in the industry as a great designer of games which is happy to think out of the box and try new things.
One thing is for sure though, Helen Walton must be doing something right. Although I’d better mention her co-founder Paul Dolman-Darrall as well, in the interests of balance!
In such a brief period of designing, the company has already created a couple of dozen great games, some of which can be found on many, if not most of today’s best casinos. This will be because the company has already signed deals to licence its games to top casino platforms like Microgaming and several others.
In keeping with its reputation for doing things a bit differently, there aren’t any actual slots in its repertoire (so far). Instead, what you will find is a broad range of instant games with some excellent quirky ideas to keep you entertained. There are some standard scratchers, but he more interesting include some superb Lotto formats (Boss Lotto is the most widely available) and some brilliant alternative puzzle style titles.
Several titles, such as Nerves of Steal and Diamond Deal, involve the player attempting to uncover casino chip so gemstones from behind a screen of alternative squares. Get it wrong and you lose a life. Guess correctly and you win a prize, and also earn back all your lost lives. You can cash out at any time, and the value of your prize is dependent upon the number of correct picks you make and the amount of lives you have left. But don’t push your luck – lose all your lives and you lose all the prize!
Another widely promoted game is the game show themed The Heist, where you have to pick your way along a tiled path, answering general knowledge questions along the way. Succeed and you get to reach The Vault. Once you get there there’s another choice to make: Jackpot or Jail, where you decide whether to take your cash or try for more loot. But always remember, one false move and you lose the lot!
And just to prove that they can do the conventional too, there are a couple of traditional table games in their range: Blackjack and Roulette.
So keep an eye out for Gamevy titles when you next pay a visit to your favourite casino. There are some great games to look out for, especially if you are looking for something new to play which don’t follow the traditional five reel slot format. There may not be a massive selection yet, but this youthful company is releasing more games all the time, so there’s plenty more to come.
