Casino dashboard: March 2022
It's been a year since Piggy Riches Megaways (Red Tiger) first entered the charts. The only thing relevant that has happened since is the launch of sister title Doggy Ricycks Megaway. Hyper Strike (Gameburger Studios) is back thanks to the recent launch.
Microgaming is restructuring its business and it will be interesting to see if this impacts on game distribution and performance over the next few months. Play’n GO interweave calendar events into their game production processes better than most. Valentine”s Day games from Espresso Games, Spinomenal and Bgaming all produced Valentine collections or editions of existing games. Inspired Entertainment launched Stacked Valentine Hearts but it was outperformed by its own Big Fishing Fortune.
Seasonal games are usually unsuccessful but some make it big. Dealmaking between studios and platform providers is back. It's evidence of a maturing of the distribution network.
Slotegrator and Groove Gaming are the biggest studio dealmakers. FBM Gaming and Caleta Gaming have become the hottest studios being integrated.
