The online gambling industry is constantly changing, with players setting new trends and forcing developers to improve their games. All suppliers give their best to keep their respective portfolios fresh, but the strategy they use varies.
Some focus on graphics, while some pay more attention to the actual gameplay by implementing new and distinctive features.
Malta-based provider of gambling software, Nolimit City, has received lots of attention lately for utilizing fresh game mechanics in their titles, which helped the company to quickly stand out from the competition.
Giving Players What They Want
The vast majority of video slot games in the market use the same recipe: a standard five-by-three layout, with paylines or 243 ways style.
But it seems punters are hungry for more, and many developers are trying hard to satisfy that hunger. Several innovative features have been launched since the beginning of 2020, successfully attracting new players.
Developers at Nolimit City were thinking outside the box, and the end result was impressive. They offered fun and exciting mechanics, which not only attracted players’ attention but showed that an alternative to the norm can be successfully executed.
Punk Rocker and Deadwood, the two games launched earlier this year perfectly illustrate the developer’s innovative approach. The new xWays and xNudge mechanics proved to be a real hit with players but also inspired the company to merge the two and create hybrid games such as Dragon Tribe and Pixies vs Pirates.
New Games and New Tools
Punk Rocker xWays combines ingenuity with excitement to offer unparalleled playing experience. Punters can look forward to a myriad of thrilling features, packed in a release that boasts huge winning potential. In addition to its stunning looks, the game introduced the xWays mechanic, which enabled players to alter combinations on a non-stop way-line. Doing so leads to the creation of Molotov wilds, a feature capable of paying out staggering prizes.
Deadwood is another title that pushes the limits and shows the developer intends to become one of the leading names in the business. The slot features the xNudge mechanic, which offers the chance of scoring fantastic wins that can go up to 13,950 times the bet. With two different bonus rounds on offer, players can even choose more frequent nudging Wilds or sticky multipliers. But, it’s the Hunter Wild that adds to the excitement. This four-row high symbol will nudge when completely visible, increasing the win multiplier in the process.
Nolimit City doesn’t stop there, as it has recently launched the upgraded version of its mobile-friendly platform, called Bet-Panel.
According to the developer, the improved Bet-Panel platform provides a wide range of custom features and options and represents the future of gaming on the go. In addition to that, the upcoming Promo tool interface will enable players to buy in-game features and access their results across other games from the studio’s offering.
The developer is currently working on the Nolimit-Winners tool, whose aim is to become a useful addition for both operators and end-users.
Two RTP Variants to Choose From
Another thing that sets Nolimit City apart from its competitors is the fact that a number of games from its portfolio are offered to operators with two RTP variants. In addition to the standard one, operators can choose the DX1 (lower) variant. There are two important reasons for using such an approach. First of all, the demand for lower RTP has increased, becoming a serious decider for many operators. Secondly, a lower RTP does not have any influence on the experience, meaning players can still expect nice wins while playing a DX1 variant.
Commenting on the upcoming plans, Malcolm Mizzi, Director Commercial Operations at Nolimit City, has recently said the new “xMechanic” is set be launched in the third quarter of this year. He didn’t reveal any details, but he did point out the new mechanic would be focused on connecting winning icons in a completely new way.
