The history of Magnet Gaming is intertwined with CEGO A/S, which in itself is partially owned by the Danish national lottery Danske Spil A/S. CEGO has been developing casual and social media games since the turn of the century and a few years later added casino games to their portfolio. They were the first to receive a Danish licence to operate an online casino in Denmark. The company prides itself in doing the entire development in-house with around 90 people from areas such as game and web programming, game and sound design, graphics, customer support and server administration. They even employ their one chefs to cater daily for their workforce.
Magnet Gaming was founded in 2015 with the aim to license and distribute their online casino games to other operators, mainly focused on regulated markets outside of Denmark. First, they set out to transition all their games to the new HTML5 format, thus allowing players to enjoy their games equally on mobiles, desktop computers and tablets. They soon signed their first distribution deals with some reputable online operators such as NetBet, CashPot Casino, Chanz Casino, NoviBet, GoWild Casino, BetVictor and Videoslots. More are sure to follow in the near future.
Admittedly, most of their games are really entertaining and have good win potential. Top listed slots are to date Gold Rush, Haunted House, Fish Tank, The Adventures Of Heidi Hunt and Pirate Tales.
Gold Rush brings the tales of gold prospecting in the Californian desert during the 19th century and stands out with an unusual 3×3 reel set and pays awarded for vertical and horizontal symbol combinations. It comes with three different features – Gold Fever, Gold Digger and Gold Canyon. Gold Fever awards 20 free spins, while Gold Canyon is a track game awarding coin wins at every step. Gold Diggers lets players literally digging for gold with the chance to win one of two localized progressive jackpots that can go into mid-five figure sums.
A more volatile game is Fish Tank, also in a 3×3 format with nine fixed pay lines and an RTP of 96.50%. It comes as well with two localized progressive jackpots and three bonus games that can lead to the jackpot bonus games. The higher volatility is though due to a respin feature after a winning spin that will increase a win multiplier after each winning respin. The bonus games – Algae Attack, Bubble Buster and Feeding Frenzy – are triggered by the respective scatters. Each can lead to the Jackpot Flash while the Feeding Frenzy can also lead to the Super Jackpot Flash bonus game where the grand jackpot is up for grabs.
