SoftSwiss New Slots 2018

SoftSwiss might’ve been founded in 2008, but it wasn’t until 2012 that they changed focus and began working on providing casino software and games for the gambling industry. Though the name indicates a Swiss company, it’s actually based in Curacao, in the Netherlands Antilles, with the developers being based in Belarus. It’s a developer that has wagered big on the growth of Bitcoin based software and games, right from the beginning.

The software platform that SoftSwiss offers allows clients to offer casino games to their players, but there are also 3rd party apps that can be integrated, for sports betting and online poker. The platform that they designed includes anti-fraud capabilities, an affiliate system and a web interface. The software can offer a total of 1,500 games, brought from multiple developers that SoftSwiss has partnered with. iSoftBet, NetEnt, Betsoft, Amatic, Evolution and NYX are among the companies that they work with. Their casinos allow for payments to be made via Neteller, credit cards, Sofort, Astropay, iDeal, Zimpler, Paysafecard, Yandex Money, Skrill and Trustly, among many others.

The company’s games and the support aren’t available in as many languages as others, but you still get 24/7 assistance in English, Russian and German. iTechLabs is the auditor that gave them their certificate of reliability.

History

SoftSwiss has started as a developer of software that was to be used for websites that provided online auctions. Since they launched in 2008, they caught the economic crisis of that period, and they chose to change directions and try to capitalize on it and to enter the iGaming market, which was booming. They started working on their own casino platform in 2012, and they chose to focus on Bitcoin based slots as well as soon as they saw the potential. Some of the biggest Bitcoin casinos around today rely on their software and games.

SoftSwiss Casino Games

As I mentioned previously, the software platform that SoftSwiss offers casinos will be able to include as many as 1,500 games, using a lot of different major developers for the purpose. SoftSwiss has only about 20 or so slot machines created so far. The developer that brings the table games, casino poker and other similar titles is called Ezugi. It is estimated that around 350 of the games available are available for Bitcoin casino players, meaning that wagers can be made with that type of currency in them.

If we’re looking only at the games that SoftSwiss designs and offers, then we have 20+ slot machines right now, most of them of very good quality and enjoyable. The themes tend to be common ones most of the time, by which I mean that you’re getting slots with inspiration that comes from fruits, from Vikings, sweets, tropical vacations, Irish luck and other similar topics. That doesn’t mean that they have no unique content though, and I can mention here Princess of Sky, Domnitors, Crazy Starter and Slotomon Go.

Though I’ve only seen modern 5 reel slot machines in their collection, I’ve noticed that quite a few of them get only 5 or 9 lines, which are usually associated with older games. There are others with more lines of course, but they seem to be in the minority.

Graphics

On average, I was quite happy with the graphics that the SoftSwiss slot machines had. In some cases, the designers relied on poker cards that were kind of bland, and those tend to take over most symbol positions, since they pay less and they have a higher rate of occurrence. Fortunately, the rest of the symbols in those games tend to look very good, even when we’re talking about a slot like Cherry Fiesta, where the focus is on fruits. Plenty of other games got all themed symbols though, sometimes of excellent quality, other times just average, but they’re always playable. The fact that their slots are designed since 2012 certainly helps, since the recent games tend to look better at most developers.

Among the enjoyable games, which I especially enjoyed because of their graphics, I would like to mention Platinum Lightning, Lucky Sweets and Domnitors.

Features

The features are the ones that feel average, if we’re to look at the SoftSwiss collection as a whole. It’s not that they don’t exist, you get two or three features in each slot, but there is nothing unique implemented there. The typical game will combine wild symbols with scatters and free spins. It will add to this either a bonus game, or a multiplier that will be applied by the wild or during the free games. That pretty much sums up all the games that SoftSwiss offers, in terms of available features.

Payouts

For the payouts of the SoftSwiss slot machines, the developer decided to offer big top jackpots, in most games ranging from 5,000x to 10,000x. There are some games where these rewards can be increased through multipliers, and at least one can pay as much as 30,000x that way (that’s what happens in Domnitors).
