The month of March saw a great number of new slots come to online casino players around the world as industry partnerships made those games easier to distribute.
Where once there were only a handful of high-quality third-party studios supplementing the megalith providers, there are now well over 100 development labs and studios producing top-tier content for players. The proliferation of independent software platforms, remote game servers, game aggregators, and fast-track certification through existing license holders have made it possible to go from a great idea to a game in play on any device in record time.
Today we’ll look at a few of the games that hit the market in March as well as a few of the most recent industry tie-ups and content distribution deals. The list will be nowhere near exhaustive as there are simply far too many titles to explore, so we’ll confine ourselves to some of the most recent and most important developments.
One place you can find almost daily coverage of new games as they appear and often before they appear at your favorite casino is LCB News where you can find over 15,000 articles “on all things iGaming such as rogue casinos, suspicious software, slot winners, and more”. For a more industry-intensive perspective, the iGaming Business Casino Dashboard provides detailed data on everything you could possibly want to know about the new ecoscape of inter-relatedness in online gambling. And finally, if you really need to pinpoint the financial side of any market in the world and are able to harvest data from a spreadsheet, H2 Gambling Capital’s subscription service is absolutely indispensable.
