Quickfire Gets a New Addition With All41 Studios
The latest addition to the lineup of high-end casino software providers that contribute content to Microgaming’s Quickfire platform comes by way of All41 Studios. They’re based out of Tallin, Estonia, and they focus on quality over quantity with an emphasis on giving players different types of themes and experiences than what they may have encountered before.
This is yet another acquisition in the battle between Microgaming’s Quickfire and other aggregation platforms to try to differentiate themselves instead of just offering the same games as everyone else.
Coming up on June 5, 2019, All41 Studios will be releasing their first title through the Quickfire platform in the form of the Le Kaffe Bar online slot.
The Le Kaffe Bar Slot Starts With an Exclusive Release
For the first three weeks of its release, this game will only be available at brands operated by GVC Holdings, and then the general release will come on June 5 of this year. With its coffee culture-based theme and concept, it’s a great example of stepping outside of the box while still providing players with something that they can feel familiar with in the form of the 243-ways format that plays out across five reels and three rows of action.
It’s been announced that more releases will come from this collaboration over the next few months, but no details have been announced at this time. In any event, it’s great to see that Microgaming is continuing to be aggressive with how they’re going after deals with more independent software providers to give players even more options that they can’t find anywhere else.
More Great Titles Coming From Microgaming’s Software Partners
This new slot with Le Kaffe Bar that’s coming up next month isn’t the only new thing that’s come out of these agreements that Microgaming has been making lately. Back in March, they had a release of a new roulette game produced by Switch Studios that looked to completely reshape how people think about non-live dealer table games. Back before that, there was the Rockability Wolves produced by Just For The Win (often known as JFTW for short), another company that produces titles for the Quickfire platform.
What we’re seeing is a shift in the modern era of online slots where major platform providers like Microgaming have realized that the previous model is starting to lag behind the times a bit since so many platforms are sharing so many of the same games because of the lack of exclusive deals. We’re seeing other providers like the YGS Masters by Yggdrasil Gaming, for example, that are creating the same kinds of exclusive agreements with preexisting, third-party developers to make games that will only be available on a given platform.
The Future for Microgaming and All41
All we know at this point is that some new games are going to be coming down the pipe this summer and fall. No names have been released yet, but we can probably expect something soon if Microgaming’s prior aggression with their promotion of upcoming slots is anything to go by.
The past year has seen them shift over to these types of exclusive software agreements for their Quickfire platform, and other software providers that run their own aggregation platforms have started following suit as well. This is the cusp of a new era in how online slots are handled, and it’s going to be a great situation for players with tons of new options.
