The Minsk, Belarus-based developer Belatra Games might not be known to the wider online casino public, but they have been in the business of creating slots and tables games for over 25 years. With the slogan “Made to be different”, they have built a firm presence in land-based casinos in the CIS (former USSR) region while also venturing into Latin America and surprisingly the USA.
It wasn’t until 2017 when they signed a deal with fellow developer turned game aggregator and white label platform Softswiss to start transitioning into online gaming. Since then, catalogue of over 100 slots and games have been added to the platform’s 2,000+ titles. While at 5% that does not look like an overly large contribution to the huge portfolio from Softswiss, it represents a major part of games that can be played directly in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
Unsurprisingly, the games can be found at most SoftSwiss powered casinos such as bitStarz, N1 Casino, Bob Casino, Lady Hammer Casino and many more. They also have a good presence in online casinos serving the LATAM regions, building on the reputation and popularity Belatra Games gained since entering the market more than a decade ago. At the same time, the developer keeps growing its market share in its core B&M markets with high-end cabinets under brand names such a Multi-Vision. All are multi-game consoles with large screens that allow players to switch between a variety of slots and table games.
Among their most popular online casino slots are Lucky Bank Robbers, The Moneymania, J-Monsters, Piggy Bank and Chicago Bang Bang. Some of the player favourites that were transitioned from land-based cabinets include Anotherland, An Escape from Alcatraz, Dracula Riches, Highway Stars and The Spanish Armada. While the visuals are not always the most elaborate on their games, they do come with ample features, modifiers and high win potential as well as a common localized progressive jackpot.
It is always interesting to see how a game developer manages their transition from B&M casinos to online gaming. Never an easy feat, Belatra relied on their experience of 20+ years and made the smart decision to choose a viable partner such as Softswiss for their undertaking. By offering their games in Bitcoin, they showed that they have what it takes to deliver comprehensive gaming solutions today and beyond.
