Skillzz Gaming is a hot young games development company based in Tel Aviv, the capital of Israel. Founded as recently as 2014, it has already forged a significant reputation for producing imaginative ideas and creating some truly innovative games. This is despite the fact that it has less than a dozen employees, and remains a minnow amongst a sea of giant sharks in the game development world. The company is fully registered with the UK Gambling Commission.
The company specialises in designing instant games, but maybe not the kind of instant games you are used to. They take a conventional genre, such as the scratch card format, and give it a unique twist. The company is in fact aptly named, because it focuses on introducing an element of skill into what are traditionally games of pure luck.
An example here is their Mega Money Rush game, which looks at first a bit like a “wheel of fortune” style title. But it then morphs into a game of skill more like a traditional retro computer game. In this entertaining game, this involves controlling a racing car in order to win more prizes and move on to the next level. There are also speed boats and planes to control as you try to increase your prize fund.
Fruit Blast is more like a cash prize version of the iconic retro game Tetris, while Gems Odyssey is like a clever mash up of scratch card, the Tumbling Reel feature in slots and Star Trek! More great game ideas are in the pipeline at the time of writing.
These quirky hybrid games are proving a hit with casino operators and players alike, adding some much needed variety to the usual slot / table game / scratch card offering of most conventional sites. There are dozens of bingo sites and casinos which already offer Skillzz Gaming titles. These include big names like 888.com, William Hill, Foxy Bingo and Moon Bingo. Gaming software providers like Microgaming and Jumpman Gaming also offer these games as an option for operators using their platforms.
So keep an eye open for these thrilling games. They should appeal to those looking for some nostalgic retro entertainment, with their Space Invader / Tetris / Head On influences clear for all to see. They may well also attract players who are looking for something a bit different from the usual standard slot / instant game formats.
