Q & A WITH STAKELOGIC
Our thirst for Megaways™ Slots and the knowledge surrounding them is the reason visitors continue to come back to our website to see what's new, and to find out all related information about them. Today we welcome Stakelogic who are one of the newest members to take hold of the Megaways™ license, they have agreed to do a Q & A with us to share their journey so far.
STEPHAN VAN DEN OETELAAR IS THE CEO AT STAKELOGIC
We would like to thank the team at Stakelogic and in particular their CEO Stephan Van Den Oetelaar for taking the time to have a chat with us today. Special thanks also go out to Demi Traarbach who has been extremely helpful since we first contacted Stakelogic.
Q. Would you be able to give us a brief background on Stakelogic from how you started up until the present day?
A. Stakelogic BV was founded in 2014 by Greentube Internet Entertainment Solutions GmbH, which is part of Novomatic AG, with the aim to develop high-end online casino games. Stakelogic at that time operated under the MGA B-2-B license. In August 2018 Stakelogic was acquired by the Dutch privately owned investment company Triple Bells BV. In its 5 year existence, Stakelogic has created a portfolio of on-line casino games that excel in wagering and player retention. Stakelogic games reside at the top of some of the biggest on-line casinos in Europe. Since the take over Stakelogic obtained additional B-to-B licenses for the UK and Romania, and created over 30 new slot games.
Q. What was behind the decision to obtain the Megaways™ license from BTG? Was it something that you had always planned? Or upon seeing the success that other software developers were having with it, was it a case of we need to be making slots with this gaming engine?
A. Stakelogic is always exploring new slot game concepts to work with. The Megaways™ concept appealed to us because it offers an almost limitless potential to create new and different game elements.
Q. Your first Megaways™ title will soon be released, what are the levels of anticipation among the team at Stakelogic? Are you confident it will be a hit with players?
A. Our first Megaways titles are now online. Black Gold Megaways™ and Mystical Santa Megaways™ proved to be commercial hits from the moment they were launched. So yes, we are confident that our partnership with BTG will be mutually beneficial.
Q. What does the team at Stakelogic believe makes a top Megaways™ Slot when it comes to grabbing the attention of players?
A. Wow, that is the 1 million dollar question. How to create an ace? I think a new game should be ‘new’ and ‘different’. Surprise the player, make the player happy, ensure that all elements of the game are balanced out to appeal to the target player. This means that volatility, sounds, graphics, should be aligned with target player group. Furthermore, game features should be perceived as ‘new’ and ‘different’. And very important, test a new game extensively. Player retention is about the details of the game. Take time to fine tune a game.
Q. Your debut slot Black Gold Megaways™ includes several bonus features aside from the free spins round, is this something that you will look to continue in future Megaways™ releases? and develop further modifiers to increase the popularity of your games?
A. Well, I think you should let us surprise you…
Q. To finish off have you got anything you can let us know about future Megaways™ releases?
A. Stakelogic will apply the Megaways™ concept on a broad variety of game concepts. We are currently working on two branded titles, but you will also see typical Stakelogic content in a Megaways™ version.
