UK-based independent software company 1X2 Network has added a new suite of arcade games to its varied portfolio, which currently comprises online sports games, table games and slots.

Made possible by the British company’s 1x2gaming subsidiary, the series launch that includes Instant Win and Mine Games allows operators to take advantage of the “shift towards gamification and player strategy,” now that consumers are looking for titles that provide them with more control over the experience and outcome of the games.

Shift In Player Preferences:

One of several formats, 1x2gaming’s Mine Games offer a “unique spin” on classic mine-sweeper games that were popular in the late 80s, also allowing the size and shape of the gameboard and the number of mines present to be adjusted by players, with multipliers scaled accordingly. This ability extends playing sessions as players identify new strategies and sharpen their skills to boost their chances of winning.

“We are undoubtedly seeing a shift in player preferences towards slots with gamified elements, and possibility for player strategy, and where they can hone their skills to improve their chances of winnings prizes,” read a statement from Rory Kimber, Account Management & Marketing Director for 1X2 Network.

Kimber explained that the suite of Arcade Games developed by the team at 1X2gaming “allows operators to capitalise on this trend and provide players with fun, intuitive and highly entertaining Instant Win and Mine Games that not only meet but exceed player expectations.”

He adds, “This is a great addition” to their offering and is “just another example of why 1X2 Network is an award-winning and market-leading online casino content provider.”

Pop ‘Til you Drop:

1X2gaming’s first release in the mine games genre, Pop ‘Til you Drop comes with four different return to players (RTP), including 97, 95, 93, and 88 percent, as well as a €250,000 max win payout.

Megablox 777:

Another addition to the suite, Megablox 777, a multi-mini-slot instant win release, which offers a fresh take on the classic fruit style complete with an innovative reel-lock feature and plenty of opportunities for players to plan a course of action.

During base gameplay, a maximum of 10 individual 3-symbol mini-games appear on a given spin. However, if the player lands a set of symbols that is larger, they can replace multiple mini-games simultaneously. These games that are larger are also more volatile, and the different, random combinations of large symbols and mini-games mean the volatility of every spin is unique.

Coin Field & Coin Vault:

Rounding off the new arcade offering is a pair of Mine Games, Coin Field and Coin Vault. The former is the second addition to 1X2gaming’s growing portfolio of mine games and sees players hunt through chests, while in the latter, players loot the bank vault. Branded Coin Vault is another version and is built on the foundation of the neon-themed Coin Vault Mine Game. It is the very first Branded Mine Game for 1X2 Network.

Between the new suite of arcade games and the soon-to-be-released Smoking Hot Fruits: 20 Lines, 1X2gaming has seen its offering expand significantly to incorporate a wide range of iGaming concepts.
