Plank Gaming Software
Some would say that operating out of the hottest of hotspots of online gaming would be easy, but Plank Gaming from Malta can surely confirm it isn’t that easy…
This is a small company that first started off in 2018, and ever since their inception their focus was on designing, developing and producing high quality video slots for the global gambling community.
We all know that new software companies pop up on a regular, almost daily basis, but not all of them deserve the spotlight. These guys were associated with top notch quality since day one, so it didn’t take long for them to get noticed by some of the industry giants. Did you know that they’ve signed an exclusive partnership deal with Net Entertainment?
Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, the good folks at Plank Gaming have decided to stick with the core principles of online gaming and gambling, so, in a way, their path leads back to the very beginnings.
Everyone else is trying to innovate in all ways possible, but these fellows have kept their business smart, and they’ve managed to offer some rather superb slots that have taken the online gambling world by a storm.
Let’s dig a little deeper and check what these guys are really all about, shall we?
When you consider what these guys do, it is somewhat peculiar how they handle things, especially their intention to keep all the lines open with the players. They are extremely interested in what the players want, so they tend to listen very closely to what the players have to say. They do not clarify how they manage to do so, but it’s obvious they monitor this kind of feedback…
Here’s what Liam Mulvaney, the company CEO has to say about this: “Plank Gaming is a rising star slot development studio based in Malta. Our USP is that we focus on the core aspects of an online slot – theme, design, math, mechanics, etc – to ensure that they are the absolute best they can be.
We go to great lengths to connect to and communicate with real slots players to learn about the latest trends and what they do and don’t like to see in games. We then feed this information back to our team of developers to ensure the slots we launch are the slots players are looking for.
So while other developers focus on innovation and reinventing the reel (see what I did there!) we believe that focusing on the player and the key aspects of a slot is the best way to develop games that stand the test of time and players return to again and again and again.”
Last but not least, we also need to point out that these guys not only make games for Net Entertainment, but they also make them for various other software companies, and sometimes even individual online casinos!
About the Games
As of time of writing this article, they only have a few games in their bold portfolio, but all of them are true little gems, so let’s take a closer look at these!
Their first game was called Puffer Goes Wild, and behind the imaginative name there is an equally imaginative game. It was released all the way back in December 2018 and it is your basic five-reel video slot that features 178 paylines. All the symbols in the game are various sorts of colorful fish, and the whole thing seems to be taking place it the bright blue waters of a tropical ocean.
Fortunes Of Fu Lu Shou rides on the coattails of numerous other Asian-themed video slots but comes off as quite an innovative take on the theme.
Neptune Rising is another underwater-themed title from their portfolio, but this one focuses on dolphins, mermaids, and the aforementioned ruler of the underwater realm.
Rich Geyser is actually powered by Microgaming, and it is released on their own Quickfire platform. It comes in the classic 5-reel and 3-row setup with 10 fixed paylines spread across these, and at first glance it comes off as a bit too basic, but it sure can provide countless hours of careless fun.
All things considered, it seems as if Plank Gaming is here to stay! Their portfolio of games may not be the largest one around, but what they’ve shown us so far has amazing potential. Also, let’s not forget they are one of the exclusive partners on Net Ent’s Connect platform, so it seems that they are destined to make quite a name for themselves.
We are looking forward to trying out more of their games.
