Slingshot Studios is a South African developer that makes video slots exclusively for Microgaming casinos, with Cash of Kingdoms being a top release.
In 2016, Slingshot Studios was established as a privately held company focused on the development of iGaming content. Geographically, the developer is situated in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal and maintains a studio in the La Lucia suburb.
When the developer was setting up, it combined a spectrum ranging from fresh talents to industry veterans. From a skills standpoint, the developer depends on animators, illustrators, coders, tester, producers, and more.
Exclusive Partnership with Microgaming
Although being privately held, Slingshot Studios has been operating in an exclusive partnership with Microgaming. As a result, all of the Slingshot Studios slots are provided solely for players to experience at Microgaming casino sites.
The partnership between the two entities was created in September 2018, following a strong showing from Slingshot Studios at the ICE Totally Gaming 2018 exhibition back in February of that year.
Core Slot Releases
The Cash of Kingdoms slot was the first to be released by the developer across Microgaming casinos. As a five-reel slot, Cash of Kingdoms was noted for the Invading Wilds™ feature that could turn adjacent reels wild either in the base game or free spins.
Zombie Hoard is a cartoon horror game made with five reels and three rows. In terms of special features, Zombie Hoard can super stack wild symbols on the third and fourth reels, while free spins are gained from tokens.
At ICE 2019, it was revealed that the developer was working on the Banana Odyssey slot. The story centres on sending monkeys into space and also includes expanding wilds, re-spins, and free spins.
