About the Company
Revolver Gaming is an HTML5 online casino game developer based in London. The company was founded in 2010 by South African, Daniel Lazarus. Trading as Lazinco Technologies Ltd, the company is co-directed by Ryan Lazarus who acts as the company's marketing manager. The company is licensed by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission for remote gambling software. The UKGC granted the license in January 2015.
The company seems to work in close association with Ryan Lazarus's Capricorn Digital dba Capricorn Ventures Limited as both are on that company's board of directors as well. Justin L. formed that company in 1999 and it has a slightly larger industry footprint, having developed RNG content for HoGaming as well as a couple of social casinos. The first place we see their work is at Leapfrog Gaming with the development of 3D characters, interactional bingo websites, and slots that were ahead of their time. It's presently unclear how much crossover there is between the companies as Capricorn counts Revolver as a client.
We've seen mention of the company at important industry trade shows such as ICE Totally Gaming in London 2016, and G2E Vegas the previous year. While not privy to proprietary business information such as contract development work for other more well-known game providers, we do see their first big break in the public eye with the early 2014 release of Pets PayDay 3D slot at bet365. Later releases include "Corrie Cobble Cash" on Gala Bingo in 2015, and Reign of the Gnomes which can be found across the Best Partners network at casinos such as Bovada, Slot.lv, and Ignition Casino.
Software and Games
All of the games are developed in HTML5 and Unity3D so as to be accessible across platforms. Most of the games shown on the company's website bear the brand, "Coming Soon" and we don't see any news releases after March 2015 as of late December 2017. We might assume that they are working on projects less prominent in the real money gambling sphere such as their social casino content. The company states that it specializes in 3D video slots, scratch cards, Latin bingo, Asian games, and Bingo specific slots.
Pet's Payday was originally thought to be a Dragonfish/888 creation as that was the platform bet365 ascribed it to when first reviewed here upon release in 2014. We'll give credit where credit is due and remedy that as soon as possible with a new review under the proper developer.
Corrie Cobble Dash is attributed to both Capricorn and the present developer. The game is based on the TV soap opera, Coronation Street, and is one in a larger series of themed games under that brand at Gala Bingo. More of an arcade game than anything else it pits players against comical interferences as they try to get their character across the finish line first in a racing game. The personalities are depicted in caricature with large heads, small bodies, and recognizable props from the show.
The game appears to have first been developed in Flash and then AS3 was used in the HTML5 conversion. Some notes indicate that it was released first in Flash and then several months later converted to HTML5 for mobile.
Reign Of Gnomes is a 243 ways to win, 5 reel, 3 position video bonus slot rendered in 3D and 2D with a rousing soundtrack and multiple features. The wild symbols can become much more powerful with traditional paylines removed from the equation. Three or more scatters trigger free spins with a bonus game at the end of each free spin. When the reels come to a stop a bonus wheel with a precious gem will appear in the middle of the screen and award random prizes.
As much as the game has to go for it with constant feature action, it fails this reviewer's idea of a good time on two counts; too many minor win celebrations, and most importantly the programmed, forced lag time between spins. Veteran slot players may feel in less control than they prefer while waiting for the game to give them permission to spin again.
The overall theoretical return to player percentage is a decent 96% RTP. Those who enjoy a lot of different activity may enjoy this game the most as only 46.8% comes from the base game, 4.3% from scatter wins, 33% during free spins and another 12% from the bonus wheel at the end of each free spin, giving it just slightly less return (33+12%) during the feature than during the base game (46.8+4.3%).
While we don't see a lot of Revolver Gaming's content in the real money gambling sphere, the company seems to be sticking it out for the long run and is creating quality content. We would expect to see more of their creations on the market in the coming months or years.
