HungryBear Gaming Software
Who Bears Wins? HungryBear Gaming is a UK-based studio launched in 2020 but backed by the long-term experience of its team, whose members were founders of CORE Gaming. If you follow the developments in the industry, then you know that in 2016 the latter was acquired by Sky Betting & Gaming, a British-based gambling company owned by Canadian The Stars Group – a sure sign that people behind the “newcomer” are really good at what they do.
It’s safe to say that CORE Gaming was at the forefront of modern technologies as the brand was among the first game makers that switched from Flash to HTML5. It happened in 2011 and since then, they have managed to successfully convert and rebuild some of the most popular online games on behalf of a big number of the world’s largest casino suppliers. So, all chances are, geeks from CORE are the only reason you could spin the reels of your favorite slot on your mobile device several years ago.
Strong Focus On the US & Canadian Markets
Well, enough with the history, let’s take a look at HungryBear and what this brand is working on today. Quite unsurprisingly, they make awesome online slots and table games, already having several titles on the floors of online casinos with more than a dozen waiting in the wings. In June 2020, the company completed 2 years under agreed non-compete restrictive covenants in the UK and a number of European jurisdictions and is now fully open for business activities within the iGaming sector.
In line with its strategy for development, the brand has a strong focus on the US and Canadian markets, hence a recently inked contract with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) looks like a great opportunity to reach their goals. In addition to that, HungryBear has secured some truly lucrative deals in the USA.
The first titles created by the studio were conveniently timed to be launch on the BCLC playnow.com platform, which sees a constant increase in popularity. It is worth mentioning that all HungryBear games (at least for now) are made in cooperation with the brand’s strategic partners: Leander, SG Digital, Blueprint, and ReelPlay.
For instance, both The Tablet of Amun-Ra and Mousse Vamousse, exciting medium-volatile slots, were brought to life in collaboration with Leander and, quite naturally, distributed across its huge network of operators. To launch engaging 3 Hand Blackjack, the only table game available at the time of writing this review, the team joined forces with the SG Digital crew of experts.
A well-established and extremely experienced team of HungryBear Gaming has ambitious short- and long-term plans, plotting to open new offices, striking new deals, and, of course, introducing new games. Their still not large but already very diverse collection of virtual one-armed bandits has managed to win the hearts of many punters who can’t wait to hit the reels of the future slots designed by this brand.
