Slingshot Studios is off-shoot from industry giant Microgaming that was founded in 2016 to design and produce video slots exclusively for Microgaming. Based in the Isle of Man they hire a mixture of industry veterans and new talent, building a diverse creative workforce that will work on innovative gaming concepts to produce entertaining high-quality slots for the world-leading game provider.
Being in partnership with Microgaming, they can build on more than two decades of experience and knowledge in the fast-moving iGaming industry. The team of creators, maths experts, animators, developers, illustrators and testers has taken on the challenge to provide a vibrant gaming experience with new pay mechanics, novel bonus features and high win potential, that will engage the player throughout every slotting session. As a subsidiary of Microgaming, they can also draw on the multiple licenses for regulated markets, allowing easy introduction and distribution of their slots to the UK, Europe, the USA and beyond. Their slots can be found at virtually every online casino including LeoVegas, Videoslots and Casumo.
Being the new kid on the block, Slingshot Studios does not have a large games catalogue yet, but that is bound to change at a rapid pace in the coming months and years. Their first title was Cash Of Kingdoms, which was released in October 2018. It is a medieval-themed video slot with five reels, three rows and 15 fixed pay lines and offers representations of knights, archers, bombardiers and magicians on its five reels alongside the novel Invading Wilds feature in the base game and free spins. The bet sizes cover a large range from 0.15 to 480 coins, which will please all types of slot players. The maximum win potential of this low-variance game peaks at 100,000 coins on a single spin.
The Invading Wilds feature is triggered when a wild symbol lands in a full stack on reel two or four and will turn one adjacent reel into a wild reel. Having a full stack of wilds on reel two and four will turn reel three wild, creating a mega block of wild symbols on the middle reels. Hitting three scatters will trigger the free spins, where the wins from the Invading Wilds feature are doubled.
