Neon Valley Studios Joins Microgaming’s Network

In September 2019 Microgaming added Neon Valley Studios to its selection of game development brands. It joins the likes of Gameburger Studios, Pulse 8 Studios, All41 Studios, Switch Studios, and Sling Shot Studios in an exclusive partnership with Microgaming to bring players the best gaming experience.

The partnership

Microgaming is one of the leading online casino providers, and the addition of the Isle of Man-based Neon Valley Studios will surely reinforce this. It continues to expand their game selections and Neon Valley Studios particularly specialises in bringing the Vegas experience to players. This might be while they’re relaxing in the comfort of their homes or while they’re out and about. The studios aim to use their inspiration and passion to deliver slots with a story, that will entertain and excite players from all over the world.

Both parties maximise their skills and extensive experience to deliver top content and stay abreast of all the latest changes in the online gaming market. Keeping up-to-date on recent technological trends, Microgaming and Neon Valley Studios aim to create quality games that players will love.

Innovation

The CEO of Microgaming, John Coleman, had this to say about the recent partnership.

“Our studios strategy is designed to bring greater choice, innovation and quality to the market. Neon Valley have years of collective gaming industry knowledge and expertise, not to mention their own distinctive style and personality, and we are delighted to add them to our global roster of independent game studios.”

Aurora Wilds

We are already seeing the fruits of this partnership. Earlier in September 2019 Neon Valley Studios had its first launch- the slot game Aurora Wilds. This is available from all Microgaming operators and contains many special features. These include expanding wilds, respins, bi-directional paylines, and a jackpot wheel.

Set against the backdrop of the Northern Lights in the Pacific Ocean, Aurora Wilds is a visually stunning game. With 5 reels and 10 paylines, this debut game from Neon Valley appears to be a success.

Microgaming’s Director of Global Operations declared the game “an enchanting addition to the Microgaming portfolio”, stating that the Neon Valley team had “set themselves a high bar” with their debut release.

More to come

With hopefully many more successful and exciting releases to follow, Brian Perego, Senior Creative Technical Designer at Neon Valley Studios discussed how their unique qualities will come through their exclusive partnership with Microgaming:

“At Neon Valley Studios, we are dedicated to producing polished games of the highest quality, injecting our knowledge of slot design through the synergistic integration of game mechanics, visuals and the latest technology. 

“Our relentless drive to create engaging gaming experiences for players is founded on our passion for games and the latest technological developments. We are delighted to bring ‘the spirit of Vegas’ to Microgaming on an exclusive basis, with Aurora Wilds marking the first wave of exciting content to come from Neon Valley Studios.”
