In an industry boasting no shortage of scandal and intrigue, it’s possible that Pragmatic Play might have the most interesting story of all.
This company was technically founded in 2015, but its origins are masked by the storm clouds of endless scandal and outright malfeasance that was TopGame. This company was known for unbelievably poor quality control (memorably, it once left jackpot icons necessary to win its bonus feature off of a major slot release’s reels) and customer service so poor it bordered on outright thievery.
Mercifully, it is now defunct. However, some or all of its assets were purchased by Pragmatic Play around the time it was founded.
At first, there was speculation that Pragmatic Play would just be the same bad industry actor as its predecessor, just under a new name. This hasn’t turned out to be the case, however…
… indeed, the company has seemed to be thoroughly above board in the intervening years. There has been no whiff of further scandal, and they received some important notices, such as a Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) Certificate of Integrity for their Random Number Generator (RNG) in 2016, and the Software Rising Star award at the 2017 EGR B2B Awards.
They’ve been making serious moves of late, continuing their expansion in international markets and generally boosting their profile in impressive fashion.
Indeed, it appears that this company’s troubled past has indeed been left in the rearview, and blue skies are ahead.
Knowing all of that, how does their design team do in this title?
