Gold Coin Studios Software
Gold Coin Studios came into the limelight in July 2020 when Microgaming launched the debut online slot created by this Nevada-based software developer.
Sparkling Arthur’s Gold packed with high volatility and an impressive set of extra features didn’t look like the first try of some new kids on the bloke. Quite on the contrary, it suggested a wealth of industry knowledge behind a medieval world of double symbols, 10-of-a-kind pays, and free spins with expanding wilds.
Passion For All Kinds Of Slots
Founded in Summer 2018, this company is a brainchild of Jonh Duffy, a slot buff that has managed to find a way to combine his passion and his business. With a double major in maths and computer science, he has always done what he loves most - designing and developing casino-style games.
Duffy can brag of...
...extensive land-based experience - for 25 years, from 1993 to 2018 he had worked for industry giant IGT, managing studios throughout the globe and geeky teams in charge of delivering sleek cabinets to the casino floors across the USA and Australia.
In short, he’s a true slot specialist that knows everything about the world’s most popular fun, all the more so in his own words, he has a rich personal experience in making all sorts of one-armed bandits: from stepper to video, core to premium, licensed and non-licensed, progressive and non-progressive.
Does Gold Coin Studios Make Slots For Microgaming?
Today, the team of Gold Coin Studios numbers nearly two dozens talented people that focus on bringing their expertise and knowledge to the online universe of entertainment mainly via partnerships with Microgaming, Velo Capital Partners, and RNG Foundry.
We guess the Isle-of-Man legend doesn’t need a special introduction as it’s almost impossible to find a punter who hasn’t spun the reels of iconic Thunderstruck (at least in demo mode) or hasn’t heard of treasures produced by Mega Moolah on a regular basis.
London –based Velo Partners, in its turn, invests in young and promising gaming studios that show strong early traction and a clear understanding of their growth trajectory. Its top-notch portfolio is contributed by many now-famous brands with Just For The Win, Lottomart, and Junglee Games to cite a few.
As for RNG Foundry...
...it is a gaming accelerator established in association with Velo Partners for earlier stage investment opportunities. To all appropriate candidates, it offers solid investment capital, technical resources, co-working office space, as well as wide distribution opportunities. The toolkit also includes platform and payment APIs, full access to a certified RNG and an RGS team, plus game performance intelligence, specialist workshops, and mentor and alumni network.
By the way, before teaming up with Gold Coin, the Foundry crew signed a number of agreements with other studios that provide exclusive content for Microgaming – Bla Bla Bla, Pear Fiction, SpinPlay, Northern Lights, Foxium.
It was a win-win combination...
...as Microgaming further expanded its network of content providers and diversify gaming portfolio while Gold Coin got a chance to reach hundreds of operators in markets worldwide. Encouraged by the great success of Arthur’s Gold, the Reno-headquartered studio soon set to launch its second and third slots, Aquatic Treasures and Animals of Africa.
