Hello guys, Ive got question and any good answers are much appreciated and they might be also on rewards - who knows
:)


I have started a way back months ago with playing some ideas of mechanics and visuals of games, that Ive read alot from what players likes. As time was going the ideas and fun development becomes a bit more deeper than I thought. So before I jump straight to it, I want to ask a few things that might helps deciding to go for it or not.

I am in thoughts to syart actually development of 3 games with good mechanics, entertainjng base game play and a good max win caps. Themed and a bit controversial.

What I want to ask is:

I know all about VFX, gdaphics and animation, how the game will behave etc. Programming it, get tesrers for resting RNG, RTP, hit frewuencies etc. But if the game is made, done:

1. Who to contact to for licening in EU? And/or is it for each country, EU, US, ASIA, AUSTRALIA, AFRICA..etc. all separate? Basically how to fully licence it to the casinos - here comes another question.

2. How does the casinos and game developers works? I mean, if you have game, how to pitch them to casino chanis? Who to contact to, or if there is any list of publishers or agents or.. basically how, who, is getting games into casinos like you see at Tsars, Loki, Woo.. any..

3. Do the developer also developing pay/deposit gates to the game to add cash or game is provided to casino and casino deals with it? The ViSA, MASTER CARD, Mifinity..etc.?

4. Winnings, loses as far as I know are dealed with casino and deveoper gets some % of it. Thats right, right?
:)




Just checking all of these because of that is manageable, I might start with it in high level, not average and that might brings to you guys some good fun and experience, I am sure, but I want to have fun with team of people I have so any answer will be helpful.
:)

Many startups begin on partnership programs with big names.

Relax Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, ReelPlay, and more offer platforms for small studios to get started and gain immediate exposure. Yggdrasil Gaming's program is called GATI

Maybe start by checking the websites and dropping a message. They will be able to give a structured approach and all the tools to realise your dreams of game design.

Licencing is done the same way as casinos I believe. You want UK exposure you need UKGC accreditation.

It's a pretty saturated market though, so you'd need to do something to stand out across the established brands

There's definitely a gap though: good, honest games with a semi decent bonus/base game hit rate without the need of mad 50000x wins

Myself, and others, would like probably a game that doesn't go too mental either end of the scale.

Thank you guys! :) Very much appreciated - more info better.
Yeah I thought to drop a messages here and there, but before to do that I wanted to see the lights of it more clearly :)
In terms of games, well, I want to and I always wanted to focus primary on base game entertainment. Playing with mechanics offering nice ways of getting wins, thrills, teases and visually attractive but not too game-ishy but more like storytelling within the themes. And that comes to mechanics as well. Example of Bad fokin neighbours - idea with alot of what to play with.
Then if bonus comes, I wat it as an advantage of base game and if superbonus then some reward and really exciting experience of even more boost-up mechanics.
Anyway, just to share some still images of ideas (pre-alphas) but preview videos are already done :) just cannot upload them here.

Congrats on getting that far. I've looked at creating my own slot game in the past but I just couldn't get my mind past all of the math involved. I'm more than capable of doing everything else though so maybe I'll go back and create something someday.

Thanks man. Well, hope you will do :)
I am creative person and also I know math but I want to hire people for it, so that part can be done. Basically the whole game, well three games I have in progress where I want to implement interesring stuff from my own experience and from audinece experience as well to hit it nicely.
Problem will start more like, when I have games done to get the right hit of peron, studio.
I like the idea of collaborate with big nems :)
Just to approach them up. Thats what I need basically and the chain casino - provider - developer :) and the paymenr options methods dealing with.

One of the moderators - @Simmo! has done exactly what you are trying to do. He created a slot from scratch, went through the whole process, and got it launched across lots of casinos. He worked with a Slot developer. He doesn't frequent the forum much these days, but you could try PM'ing him. The slot is Afterlife Inferno and he created it with Leander.

Ou thanks Neil, I will pm him as well. I have checked it out and looks nice. Thats what I want to go for. But the picture is bigger (to do a series of two, three games before lunch to have option of collect bonuses landed and use them also in other games with same +/- win cap and stats range). Anyway, alot of to share and to do, but the things are pretty big and alot of what to do.
Gonna share one video out of a few(Its in BWB forum):

Hi Degerardo.

I'm happy to share what advice I can. I've got a fair bit of experience with setting up studios and casinos - and with Malta especially. I should be able to point you in the right direction for contacts, what to consider and what to avoid.
Most recently I started Blue Guru Games which is now part of MGM.

Drop me a message if you want to chat.

All the best with it!

@andybb is welcome to make his account official if he so chooses, just needs to drop a message to @Casinomeister as he's the keeper of the keys for such things.
