Rarestone Gaming Software
Established by veteran players in the industry, Rarestone Gaming is an Australian-based studio, built on a passion for developing content with global appeal. Motivated by the principle that “the best game makers are game players”, the team of enthusiasts’ primary focus is maths-led development of releases tailored to seasoned punters.
Looking for the way to become more visible and speed up the success, the team joined forces with one of the leading content and solutions suppliers. The alignment with an already well-respected studio certainly is a milestone achievement for the young team, as it will give them the great opportunity to showcase their creative products to a range of clients.
Strategic Coalition with Playtech
The studio began as an Aussie start-up comprised of game makers looking to test their skills in the UK’s online market. The five experienced individuals from the land-based slots industry have made retail products for Australia, Asia, and the US.
In 2017 the promising gang of creatives partnered up with a seasoned Kyiv production house and started to work. Less than 18 months later, Playtech took a chance, acquired Rarestone in mid-2018 and offered access to its great range of operators. Playtech is already recognized as one of the leading brands with an extensive selection of innovative and in-house premium releases, as well as one of the forward-thinking solutions developers.
Representing a desirable partner to cooperate with…
…so far nine global studios are operating under their umbrella, including Rarestone Gaming as well. The list also features:
- Playtech Origins
- Ash Gaming
- Psiclone Games
- SUNFOX Games
- GECO Gaming
As you can see, the list hosts not only names which are already well-known industry-wide, but also brands who are building their reputation and gradually setting foot across territories. And that’s exactly where leading solutions provider steps in, helping those companies develop faster.
Being the last one to join the gang…
…Rarestone will also get the unique opportunity to take advantage of Playtech ONE Omni-channel platform allowing punters to enjoy a seamless experience anywhere, at any time and on any device through a single account and wallet.
Having industry-leading content, powerful IMS platform, business intelligence technology, and fully automated marketing tools, the proactive team is able to provide and deliver the ultimate casino experience, and young Australia-based studio will undoubtedly leverage that opportunity.
Paving the Way with Unique Features
As one of the officials from Playtech commented, the unique strength of each of the studios they sealed the deal with is a core element of big studio’s content strategy.
That’s precisely where Rarestone’s expertise in creating games fits in…
… as they have an excellent sense and knowledge needed to pack the games with excitement and anticipation. Those abilities are well-presented in their Fire Blaze series. The ideal combination of Playtech’s innovative game design and powerful back-end technology, teamed up with an extensive range of partners gives them a unique position to create recognizable jackpot brands players will actively seek out.
The first release in line from the studio’s brainchild Fire Blaze series is Sky Queen…
…packed with no less than four jackpots. Those include the Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand. But the “secret ingredient” of the game is hidden in some other feature- Hold and Respin.
During the main session, six or more Sun symbols activate the Respins feature, with each Sun representing a prize. These icons and their corresponding rewards remain locked within the feature round, with additional Suns awarding both more prizes and extra respins.
Any jackpot star icon is guaranteed…
…to activate one of the Mini, Minor or Major jackpots. Those are worth up to 500x total bet. In case the Suns fill all the symbol positions, the player scores the Grand jackpot, winning 2000x their original stake. The Grand jackpot can also be grabbed in the main game with 15 Sun icons filling the reels.
Though making some definite conclusions based just on a single game is not the easiest task to do, still, we managed to create some rough picture. Judging by the setting from this release, the action is what characterizes the entire session.
Thanks to that option…
…which constantly creates a dynamic and challenging atmosphere in the game, it’s quite obvious that the main focus of the team is providing a high level of engagement and actionability. That’s for sure one of the most crucial components all producers pay special attention to, as nowadays clients are always looking for more (action and fun).
Immersive Visuals and Versatile Themes
The current situation sees several titles available across multiple brands, all of them bringing a unique story in a visually impressive package.
To start with the Sky Queen…
… which portrays one of the most beloved topics frequently used among content producers-ancient cultures. The highly inspirational subject gives them plenty of room for versatile experiments, which resulted in a great story with excellent gameplay.
Speaking of ancient cultures, their lobby is equipped with several stories that have found inspiration in China. Those include Tiger Turtle Dragon Phoenix, Golden Macaque, Tsai Shen’s Gift, Jinfu Long and several more.
Although oriental themes are among the most frequently exploited ones…
…their biggest virtue is that they can be always fresh and popular if developers know how to create a good story. And Rarestone has solid knowledge and lengthy experience, which enables the team to deliver unique games.
The catalog also features an Egyptian story (Pharaoh’s Daughter), a bit of magic (Blue Wizard), and mystique (Eternal Lady). Those hints are more than enough to reveal that the team will make sure to create games that will be suitable for all types of punters, both those having strict criteria for the visual aspect, as well as those looking for constant action. Such an approach will provide them well reception among clientele all over the globe.
