Same as with the other companies which are part of this group, Iron Dog Studio is a UK based business, with the HQ being in Hove, East Sussex. The same goes for their gaming license, which was obtained from the UK Gambling Commission.
The games which are available from them go through an extensive testing process, not only at the company’s offices, but also at independent auditors such as Quinel or GLI UK. These insure that the games are safe and that the RNG being used is 100% random.
You can find the content from Iron Dog at casinos which use the 1x2 Network or NYX OGS. There aren’t a lot of their games out right now, but the quality tends to be excellent and I find myself enjoying their titles and trying them as soon as they come out.
The history of Iron Dog seems to go back only to 2016, when the company was founded. It’s always been a subsidiary for 1x2 Network, one of the two brands to belong to this company. They were created with the sole purpose of designing high-end content for the gaming industry, and their entire focus is on this task.
Just months after releasing their first slot machine, called Cosmic Crystals, they were already announcing that it was rolling out at multiple casinos. With the first game released in December 2016, by the end of January 2017 there were already three casinos which had it live. As they continued to release games after that, so did the number of partner casinos increase in time.
The efforts of Iron Dog Studios have been recognized with several award nominations over the last couple of years, as they’ve kept offering excellent slot machines and table games.
Iron Dog Casino Games
The current offer from Iron Dog Studio includes a total of 16 casino games. Out of these, 13 are regular video slots, with the other 3 being the table games. The typical release schedule has the company launching a new game every 1-2 months.
In order of release, the three table games which they launched are 3D style European Roulette, Baccarat and Blackjack.
The focus of the company remains on slot machine development though, and they’ve been doing an awesome job in this field. They started out with slots like Cosmic Crystals, Cherry Blast and Paint, but as time went on they started offering more interesting themes as well. Gifts of Ostara, Blood Queen, Siren’s Kingdom and The Curious Cabinet are a couple of examples of slots which have a bit more to share with you.
I’ve been impressed at the design quality in their slot machines. Take any of the games that they’ve launched in 2018, and you will enjoy their look, no matter what’s the theme being used. Even for a game like Rainbow Wilds, which follows the story of the leprechaun, the graphics are nowhere close to what other slots in this category are showing you.
Symbol-wise, expect to find a fair share of Royals in the majority of their games, being used as low paying icons. They’re well enough designed usually, so it’s not a huge problem, particularly since everyone else is doing the same.
If you’re into games with high end graphics, then the slots I’d recommend based on this one aspect would be titles like The Curious Cabinet, Si Xiang and Wai Kiki, each one with a different look.
It certainly shows that having a brand that’s focused just on developing high quality content can pay off, and so far it looks like a good decision for the 1x2 Network.
Each slot machine seems to be doing its own thing, and the features involved tend to be fairly diverse. To give you an example, in Moirai Blaze the features include avalanches, free spins, cluster pays, multipliers, wilds and symbol swaps, while for The Curious Cabinet you get sticky wilds, scatters, re-spins, giant symbols, multipliers and free spins.
It might not be the case for all of them, but mostly I think you’re going to find their collection diverse enough in this aspect, to make it worth it to try them all.
The payouts will often be pretty good, particularly since features tend to help out a lot. The RTP is also on the high side on average, with 96% or better available in all their newer titles. The first couple of games were pretty bad though, with RTP somewhere near 94%.
