Hacksaw Gaming is a young and ambitious developer who transitioned to a full-sized game studio in a short period of time. Founded in 2018, they set out to bring a fresh breeze into the rather dust-gathering scratchcard sections at online casinos and have since dived into video slots, all with a mobile-first approach that works on virtually any type of device and under licences from the MGA Malta and the UK Gambling Commission.
Did you know that there are currently 250+ game developers who supply an ever-increasing number of online casinos? In just two decades, iGaming went from a niche market to a booming industry, that received another major push at the onset of the mobile gaming era. Standing out from the crowd has thus become not only increasingly difficult but also vital to the success of a new provider. Reason enough to take a closer look at how Hacksaw Gaming has fared since its inception.
Soon after setting up their HQ on the sunny island of Malta, the Hacksaw Gaming team took on the challenge of making a mark in the iGaming universe and focused in a first wave on revitalising the scratchcards that usually acted more or less like an appendage to online casino lobbies. They quickly increased their portfolio to exceed 25 scratchcard games with distinct themes and jackpots of up to €500,000 that would appeal to existing and new players.
After their initial success, they turned their attention to video slots with a focus on a mobile-first design that would provide an equal gaming experience on smartphones, tablets and desktop PCs. Hacksaw Gaming debuted in September 2019 with their first creation called Stick’Em, a 5×4 slot with 1,024 ways and a comical theme evolving around the cartoon character Canny The Can. The game comes with a Sticky Win Spin feature, a bonus game in a Wheel of Fortune-style and a Free Spins round that can lead to wins of up to 2,048 times the bet.
More exciting slots such as Cubes and Cash Compass followed soon, increasingly inching Hacksaw Gaming onto the radar of the player community. It did not go unnoticed with casino operators and aggregator platforms, leading to Hacksaw Gaming creations being added to a rapidly growing number of casino lobbies. Videoslots, LeoVegas, Bethard, Betsson, Wildz Casino and many more are listing the games while distribution deals with the likes of Relax Gaming ensure that their slots & scratchcard games are easily integrated.
