NeoGames is a company that was founded in 2005. They are in a bit of a minority among the game developers of today, as their main focus doesn’t seem to be on creating slot machines. They are a major provider of iLottery solutions, with slot machines, bingo and scratch cards being secondary. More than 200 of their own games have been released so far, with about 50 being the slot machines.
NeoSphere Platform: their software platform offers a gaming site everything it needs to get started. It includes the expected player management system, marketing, electronic wallet, customer support, loyalty options, reports, payment gateways and game management for the included games. Third party content can be integrated rapidly, and to date they’ve added hundreds of different services, ranging from game providers to different payment methods, options for geo-location and many others.
Security appears to be one of the company’s strong points, as they have ISO certifications for both their security process and their development, while also offering payment and banking solutions as a certified entity.
The company will also offer additional services to their customers, ranging from player support, to marketing, payment management or compliance and security.
When it comes to major partners which have integrated their solutions, often enough we’re talking about lotteries, some at the state level in the United States, other times national entities. More than 50 lotteries from all over the world are serviced. They have most of their focus on iLottery solutions, but other areas are not neglected.
The solutions which are offered by NeoGames have been certified in a lot of different jurisdictions and they range from ISO certifications, to lottery associations, the UK Gambling Commission, Malta’s Gambling Authority, Belgium’s Gaming Commission and so on. Their games were also tested by independent auditors, which include NMI and iTech Labs.
History of NeoGames
The story of NeoGames starts back in 2005, as a company that is based in Luxembourg. They have made themselves into a major brand in the lottery market, becoming a provider for some of the largest lotteries. They are present in the United States in several state-level lotteries, but also in other countries from all over the world. Beyond their iLottery solutions, they have also worked on other types of casino games, and they’ve launched over 200 titles over the years. About a quarter of those are their slot machines.
With a collection of over 200 games, NeoGames have released their fair share of slot machines, instant games, lotteries, keno as well as other types of casino games. The focus seems to be mostly on bringing the casino a profit, so you don’t get that many games from them which would have a high RTP.
In terms of slot machines, 50+ games have been developed by NeoGames in this category. A mix of 3 and 5 reels games are present in it, some with quite common classic themes, others featuring sexy lifeguards, Wild West characters, creatures of the ocean, fantasy creatures and so much more. To be noted is the quality of the design in the majority of their slot machines, even the ones with 3 reels. The symbols tend to be 100% themed, without Royals or card suits, and so the action is a lot more enjoyable.
Innovation doesn’t seem to be a major concern for them, but the features you get are all solid options, which you’re going to want to take advantage of. Wilds, multipliers, free spins and bonus game appear to be the ones that you’re going to see most of the time.
In terms of popularity, the slot machines from NeoGames which seem to be getting more attention will include the likes of Reel Bandits, Mighty Sphinx, Egyptian Magic, Astrodice or Fruity Friends. They manage this through interesting designs and features.
Highest RTP Games
The average RTP for a NeoGames release is on the low side. You will get a couple of slot machines with a 96% RTP (Grand Crown and Reel Bandits), two others with 95% (Roll the Dice and Aqua Cash), while the rest of 40+ slots all seem to be at 94% or considerably lower than that.
