Microgaming has continued growing its stable of independent game developers with a new partnership deal it recently signed with PearFiction Studios. The Montreal-based developer will now supply content for Microgaming’s platform.
The new partnership has already produced its first project; Chicago Gold slot will make its debut on 4 February. The slot adopts a mobster theme and boasts high-volatility and 40-paylines with free spins and respins among other features. Players will get to experience PearFiction’s new features, including Cash Collection and the Big Boss Jackpot Reveal.
A follow-up title is also planned for release soon in the form of a prehistoric-themed slot named Blazing Mammoth.
This is not the first time that PearFiction has collaborated with Microgaming. The two companies worked together to produce the punk rock-themed The Smashing Biscuit slot. Following the success of the slot, Microgaming set its eyes on a more permanent relationship with the young developer.
Andrew Booth, Microgaming’s Director of Games, praised the company’s new ally, saying, “PearFiction Studios are proven innovators who marry great artwork with technical insights, game performance, and a huge sense of fun. Join us on 28 January when we take a closer look at Chicago Gold and learn more about the PearFiction Studios team.”
The CEO of PearFiction Studios, Thierry Semoff, said that Microgaming’s platform represents an opportunity for his company to exceed its wildest dreams.
“When an industry pioneer like Microgaming wants you on board, it’s a real recognition that the games you’re creating are good and that all your hard work is paying off.” He said.
Microgaming will host a special webinar on 28 January to introduce players to its new partner and speak about the exciting developments ahead.
