Can you tell us a little bit about your company - Wazdan?

Our portfolio has grown to hold more than 170 titles, offering our trademarked mechanics such as the award-winning Mystery Drop™, Cash Infinity™, Volatility Levels™, and Collect to Infinity™. Our top priority is giving players Freedom of Choice™ through our cutting-edge features that offer customisation to suit individual requirements like the speed of gameplay or the Lite Mode for a slower internet connection. Our games are also available in more than 30 languages, as well as in all currencies and cryptocurrencies, allowing players from all over the world to enjoy high-quality entertainment.

Which products will you be showcasing during the Canadian Gaming Summit?

We’ll be showcasing all our innovative products at the G142 stand and look forward to greeting everyone, from our current to potential clients. One particular highlight for us will be the Mystery Drop™ promo tool which has recently won the Game Feature of the Year Award 2023 at the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards. It was used for our current network promotion Wazdan Breaks the Rules with €1,000,000 prize pool which makes it our biggest promotion ever.

Of course, we’ll also be presenting our top-performing games like Power of Sun: Svarog Online Slot as well as a sneak preview of upcoming titles Mighty Wild™: Panther, 16 Coins™, and Mighty Symbols™: Crowns. These forthcoming releases perfectly demonstrate Wazdan’s signature engagement-boosting features that players have come to love including, Cash Infinity™, Chance Level, Collect to Infinity™, Cash Out, Sticky to Infinity™, and Wild Rampage™.

Last but certainly not least, we’ll also have a special surprise for operators who visit our stand with instant integration during the show which is something they will not want to miss!

How do you decide on what game specs to use when developing a new slot game?

First and foremost, we’re always looking for new ways to engage players and provide an immersive gaming experience. We consider the demographic of the players we want to attract and conduct research into their preferences as well as look at the current market trends which helps us decipher what animations, sound effects and graphics to include in new games. In the development process, we also ensure our games are compliant with all relevant gambling regulations for different jurisdictions.

With our motto being ‘quality over quantity’, we create unique mathematical models for each of our games that are intuitive and easy to understand for our audience. Staying true to our own signature style with captivating graphics and animations is important so that players can instantly tell when they are playing a Wazdan game. Our goal is to find what enhances the experience for our audience and continuously build on this to create truly innovative slot titles.

Which are your 3 most popular games in Canada?

Magic Spins™ has been a top performer worldwide, including Ontario. Shortlisted for Game of the Year at the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards, the game has implemented the thrilling Collect to Infinity™ feature as well as the player-favourite Hold the Jackpot bonus round which is known for showering players with massive cash prizes.

Burning Sun™ has also been a prominent release for us in Canada thanks to the engagement-boosting Sticky to Infinity™ and Hold the Jackpot features that players have really responded well to.

Lastly, we can’t but mention our hugely successful 9 Coins™ series, with 9 Coins™ Grand Gold Edition in particular. It is a thrilling highly volatile slot that pairs the blend of innovative and retro with the top-performing Cash Infinity™ feature and pays up to 1,500x a player’s bet.
