1×2 Gaming is a developer that’s based in UK, and they’re especially well known for the creation of Virtual Football, back in 2002. They are also offering games with fixed odds, casino games and slot machines, with over 90 titles being available in total.
The company’s founding date is in 2002, and they’re based in Brighton & Hove, which is also known as Silicon Beach in UK. Together with Iron Dog Studio, they’re now a subsidiary of a larger company, called 1×2 Network.
As a UK developer, they naturally have a gaming license from the country’s Gambling Commission, and it’s one of the most player-oriented licenses around, so it’s good news for their players. Their games are tested by GLI, formerly known as Nmi Gaming, an independent auditor which insures the fairness of their content. Another auditor of their games is Quinel.
The games coming from 1×2 Gaming are available at a couple of huge brands of the online casino industry, especially some of the ones incorporating sports betting as well. There is a very good reason for this, and that’s their Virtual Football platform, which allows betting and offers live game results.
History of 1×2 Gaming
The story of 1×2 Gaming started out in 2002, in UK, and the first name of the company was actually F1x2 Gaming Casino. They started out with a big focus on virtual sports, creating a program which now offers 162 leagues from 146 different countries. Eventually they started developing other types of casino games as well, and they also started building up their collection of slot machines. They are constantly signing new partnerships, and they are available on some of the biggest bookmakers around, thanks to their Virtual Sports series.
More than 90 games are going to be available from 1×2 Gaming, and they will be split into several categories. Virtual Sports appears to be their bread and butter, the games that they started with back in 2002. Slot machines provide an even bigger part of their portfolio, and they tend to be high RTP releases which are worth checking out. Thirdly, we have the Casino Games, including here different variants of Roulette, Casino Poker, Video Poker, Baccarat, Cribbage and so on. Other categories on their site mention Arcade games, along with Keno or Bingo variants, plus scratch cards.
Theme wise, sports will play a big role in their collection, the Virtual series being centered around them. The Slots will vary, offering a little bit of everything, though some of those titles do have sports as a focus as well (World Cup 3×3 and Football 3×3). Other notable games include The Justice Machine (superheroes), I Am The Law (wild west) and Deadworld (branded post-apocalyptic title).
Most of the games that I’ve seen so far from them will offer a healthy mix of features, which will include standard options. Wild symbols, scatters, free spins, multipliers, bonus games, these are often all combined in a single game, so nobody can complain that they’re not getting something good. I haven’t seen much innovation in their slots though.
Their games don’t pay a lot, with their biggest rewards generally being lower than 1,000x. Even so, the RTP is often very high in their games.
Whether it’s the theme that gets the players, the casino’s promotion or the RTP, there are several titles which appear to be more popular among players. Alice and the Red Queen is one of them, a funny game that’s themed around Alice in Wonderland. Aztec Secrets is also there, and its high RTP gives players a good reason to check it out. The third one that looks particularly popular is Candy Cash.
If we look at the Virtual series, which made 1×2 Gaming popular, some of the more popular titles are Virtual Football Pro and Virtual Tennis.
Highest RTP Games
The list of slot machines offering a very high RTP, of at least 97%, is actually too long to fully mention here, so on that account you will find 1×2 Gaming to be an excellent developer.
I will just give you a couple of names, games that I enjoyed playing and which look great RTP wise. These games are slots like Santa 3×3, Fruity 3×3 or Jackpot 3×3 (all with 98.10% RTP), plus Celebrity Jungle (97.70%), Kitty Cash (97.86%) or Gods of Olympus (97.50%).
There are many other good ones in their collection, though finding some slots with an RTP of 94% is not excluded, so you should still check before playing one of their games.
As for their Virtual series, their RTP seems to be somewhere around 94% or 95%, so the slot machines actually seem to pay better in the long run.
