Rabcat Produces Important Microgaming Quickfire Titles
April 27, 2015
The Microgaming Quickfire platform is one of the most important things that Microgaming has done for game selection. The basic idea is that they have made deals with a lot of smaller software companies that players have most likely never heard of. In turn, they put selections of games from these companies all on the same platform along with a few hundred of their own most popular titles. The end result is the Quickfire platform, and Rabcat is one of the companies who has been gaining a lot of traction through this platform and the exposure that comes along with it.
Dragon's Myth is one of the more recent titles that have been added to this platform by Rabcat. This is a 20-payline pokie that centers around a viking girl who is trying to hunt dragons. It has some great features that really make sense in the context of the theme, and it also has some good payouts available. You can get up to 20 free spins at once, and to give you more value, the game pays both left-to-right and right-to-left during your free turns. Overall, this is a solid game with a high hit-rate.
Castle Builder is another recent game that Rabcat has developed for the Microgaming Quickfire platform. This game has gotten a lot of attention for its atypical gameplay and the fact that it unfolds more like a video game than a pokie. Though it only uses 15 paylines, the gameplay is outstanding and involves collecting parts to build a castle for a prince and a princess. You can get payouts worth up to 20,000x on the normal paytable with the top jackpot that's triggered with five of the builder character. It's not hard to see that this is a game that's been shaking up the industry on a noticeable level.
Microgaming is well-known for having made a number of the advances in the industry that we now take for granted. To make a point, consider the Thunderstruck video slot. Free spins features with multipliers were around before this game, but it was this title that make them so popular, and it's this title that's the reason so many games these days have free spins features with multipliers. They're able to dictate major trends, and they've done this in a major way with their Quickfire platform which has been copied endlessly with other platforms.
