As a company, Quickspin has been established in 2011, the founders being veterans of the industry which have come from big companies like NetEnt and Unibet. The influence of the former is clearly seen in the extremely high production value of the slots which Quickspin puts out on a regular basis. They’re based in Sweden, with offices in Malta as well.
The developer holds licenses from two of the industry’s most respected jurisdictions, being issued by Alderney and United Kingdom. Their games are translated into 27 languages and they are playable with 50 currencies. The platform they designed offers 24/7 support.
Quickspin claims to offer the world’s most awesome video slots, and if you’ve checked them out in action, I’m sure you will have no trouble believing it. The developer puts out 12 new slots per year, so they have a rather ambitious schedule of 1 slot per month, impressive if you look at the kind of quality they put out. They always have about 30 different concepts ready to be worked on, and there are 6 prototypes already in progress.
History of Quickspin
The story of Quickspin begins in May 2011, when it was founded by Daniel Lindberg (ex NetEnt), Joachim Timmermans (ex Unibet) and Mats Westerlund (ex NetEnt). They made a great impression rather quickly, and in early 2012 they were shortlisted in three categories already, at the EGR B2B Awards (categories were Innovation in Slot Provision, Social Gaming Supplier and Software Rising Star).
Their roots quickly showed, and in addition to the NetEnt style of design, they also signed a partnership with Unibet that same year. Fast forward half a year, and in the meantime they launched the popular Big Bad Wolf, while also getting their license from Alderney. Various agreements were signed after that, with companies like Betclic Expert or Gala Interactive, and next year they once again were named Software Rising Star at EGR Awards. Partnerships with Rank Group PLC and Bet365, along with Game of the Year for Big Bad Wolf, were among the great news they shared with the world in the months that followed.
Other partnerships that they signed in 2014 included the one with Ladbrokes, Vera & John, William Hill and Paddy Power, all giant names of the online gaming industry. Thanks to the quality of their work, they also continued getting awards and nominations in various categories.
Leo Vegas, Casino Saga, Mr Green, Casumo, these are some of the new partners they signed with in 2015, while also continuing to release new slot machines, such as Second Strike.
As of 2018, after years of expansion and new slot releases of the highest quality, there are more than 180 casinos which list Quickspin slot machines. There is no stopping Quickspin, a developer that seems destined to be at the top of the industry eventually.
Expanding quickly over the course of the last couple of years, Quickspin’s portfolio seems to have reached a size of about 50 slot machines right now, either already released or due to be out by the end of 2018. I’d still consider them a fairly small developer, but they’re clearly about to join the big leagues.
Their games are of the highest quality, the graphics style and the modern approach to it being similar to what NetEnt offers, along with other Swedish companies which have grown in the shadow of that behemoth. Every single slot machine I’ve seen them release in the last few years has been superb, and the latest ones strengthen that impression. Ark of Mystery is especially interesting, along with Big Bot Crew, Dwarfs Gone Wild or Eastern Emeralds.
Fairy tales and the fantasy genre has often been a source of inspiration for Quickspin, so you can find from them titles like Rapunzel’s Tower, Pied Piper, Goldilocks or Royal Frog, among others. They have some classic/jewel style slots as well, but they’re the minority.
Quickspin’s content is pretty equal in terms of payouts, features, design quality and even RTP, so in the end it’s mostly about how much the casinos promote one game or another, or about the player’s own preferences. The games which seem to be especially liked right now include the likes of Eastern Emeralds, Northern Sky, Pirates Charm and Dwarfs Gone Wild.
Highest RTP Games
With perhaps one or two exceptions, the vast majority of the slot machines that we’ve seen Quickspin release have an RTP of at least 96%, and there are several which even go over 97%. I’m going to mention here the ones that fall into the latter category, but overall I found the Quickspin slot machines to be great in this regard.
If you want to maximize your chances, then the slots from Quickspin with the best RTP would be Beowulf (97.21%), Big Bad Wolf (97.3%), Rapunzel’s Tower (97.09%), Supernova (97.05%) and Treasure Island (97.1%).
