About the Company
Max Win Gaming is a small slot development studio with offices in Sophia, Bulgaria. The company may have been formed as early as 2015 or 2016, but the website only appeared in 2019.
Not much is known about the ownership and management of the company except that they have been able to ink a couple of important deals to get their small portfolio of games out into the wider market.
The most important of those deals to date has been a link-up with Relax Gaming.
In early 2019 the studio joined up with the Relax Gaming Silver Bullet platform, joining Northern Lights, Dice Lab, and STHLMGaming and others to take advantage of the partnership's all-inclusive services including its distribution network, brand fast-tracking, and other marketing tools.
Additional developers in partnership with Relax for Silver Bullet services include Kalamba, 4ThePlayer, Fantasma, Electric Elephant, Saphire, and Silverback.
Observant readers may recognize some of those names as Yggdrasil Gaming Masters Program studio partners.
We were only able to identify two team members at Max Win - one the head of development and the other a programmer - both are Sofians with impressive credentials.
Let's take a look at their...
Software and Games
HTML5 is the technology or rather coding language, that is replacing Flash for all online games. It allows a lean package to deliver everything needed to run a game on a mobile device or high definition widescreen desktop monitor and optimize content for the best display and functionality possible.
That said, all of the online casinos we find their games listed at also deploy in HTML5 so there's no reason to believe that Silver BUllet or even the games themselves would b based on antiquated programming like Flash.
- Splendour Forest
- Fruit Strike
- Yummy Wilds
That's it for now, but we don't expect a small studio to create a game engine and then hire a bunch of artists to slap a dozen different themes over it any more than we expect them to push out a truly unique new game each month.
With today's multi-software distribution platforms there is definitely room for nice developers and boutique studios to simply focus on what they do best and create games at a measured and deliberate pace.
Splendour Forest is a 5x3 video slot with a fantasy theme. It's a super high volatility slot with intriguing feature mechanics to go with it.
There are ten fixed paylines, free spins, and expanding symbols with a max win of 6427x bet.
The RTP is 95.09% and it's available in 27 different languages.
Let's look at the features!
The wild golden tree is also a scatter. Land one on each of the reels 1, 3, and 5 to trigger 10 initial bonus spins with a potential for retriggers.
The golden symbols will expand during free spins and they can connect to others of their kind to generate additional prizes. As many as five different expanding symbols can be found in the bonus game.
Fruit Strike is a simple looking 3 reel game with a single payline. Golden bells, 7s, and
classic fruit symbols mesmerize you in this classically inspired retro game with special features.
Another highly volatile slot, the features include locked wilds, respins with multipliers up to 10x, and a "Strike bonus".
The Respin Bonus uses the wild symbol as a bonus symbol that locks in when the other reels spin. The wild will have a multiplier value up to 10x for a max potential win of 2000x your line bet/total stake.
The Strike Bonus is triggered when the Strike symbol land on the payline. It is only found on the central reel, just as the multiplier respin symbols are.
It will contain one of the higher paying icons and pay a multiplier up to 10x stake as well.
For a seemingly simple 3x1 retro slot, this game packs a wallop and is branded with both the Max Win and Relax Gaming logos. The locking symbols, multipliers, and respins catapult this title into the 21st century.
Yummy Wilds was the company's third release. As the second title, it couldn't be more different than its predecessor.
The only thing it has in common is very high volatility. This feature, if carried through all of their releases could make their games the most loved and most hated titles in existence, much like NetEnt's Dead or Alive - you love it or you hate it. You'll drop your bankroll in a hurry or cash in big!
Candy in bright pastels and an excitingly animated game space make this a delicacy to salivate over.
The 5x3 slot has 243 ways to win in place of traditional paylines, and four different bonus games that feature expanding, random, locked, or multiplier wilds.
The max win on this title is a staggering 9,442x stake and the RTP is still a respectable 95.49%
The Final Analysis
Max Win Gaming may only have a small handful of titles, but the games offer enough attraction to have caught the attention of Relax Gaming.
Being carried on the same platform as Yggdrasil Masters Programme studio partners is quite an endorsement in and of itself.
We find the games to be in a category of "about as good as it gets" and especially enjoy the high volatility, yet high frequent hit frequency and respectable return to player percentages.
We wouldn't look for this developer to ever ramp up production to the level of other boutiques such as Foxium, but we do hope they maintain their current quality control, innovation, and unique approach to real money casino games that spin.
The lists below will contain links to games we have reviewed in detail as well as ranked and rated online casinos that carry their games. We'd suggest giving them a spin.
