Realistic Games is a small UK based gaming software development company. Founded in 2002, fifteen years or so may make them appear like a thrusting newcomer in most industries, but in the fast-moving world of online gaming they are considered almost middle aged. They now have a total of around thirty employees, and have their headquarters in Reading, Berkshire.
The company is focused on game development, with a portfolio of online casino table games and slots. Their games are compatible with play on any device, either directly through web browsers using Flash technology or HTML 5. They also provide enhanced versions of their Blackjack and Roulette designs in a downloadable app version.
Initially, the company designed games for other operators, and was very successful (and still is) at licencing its games to major online betting companies’ casino sites. Recently however, it has decided to focus on developing its own operation. It now has its own servers, based in Gibraltar, so that it now has more control over the development and production of its games.
Realistic Games have earned themselves a growing reputation for their innovative designs, particularly with regard to their slots. Here they have a growing if somewhat niche portfolio of over a dozen entertaining games. These include some very well-known and popular titles, the most famous of which is probably their ancient Egyptian themed Tutankhamun. The Pharaonic theme is one of the most popular genres in online slots, so this game has done well to break through in this somewhat overcrowded area. They have also created many other popular favourites, such as Fruit Factory and Double Your Dough!
But this company do not just stick to the tried and trusted formulas; they are also renowned for their imaginative and innovative designs. Examples here include It Came From The Moon, complete with realistic retro 1950s B movie sci-fi imagery. It is also a little reminiscent of those vintage Space Invader consoles: it’s all about shooting down Moon Bugs and Alien Spaceships as you attempt to win lucrative bonus prizes. Just like in the original Space Invader game, the Mother Ship is the ultimate prize as you zap away at row after row of spaceships on this game’s special feature.
Super Graphics Upside Down is another unusual and innovative game. This colourful slot has a Japanese theme where the bonus symbols are concentrated on the right hand reels. This can be a bit of a disadvantage when wins are paid out from left to right. But get three or more on your reels, and all five reels are rotated through 180 degrees, awarding you fifteen free spins with the prize winning symbols now on the left!
Most of this company’s games can be played on any device, so on the go gamers playing on their mobile or tablet are not left out. Realistic games are seen on most well-stocked online casinos’ sites, but they are particularly popular on the big online betting companies’ portals, where the company have built up a strong relationship. These include Bet365, Betfred, Ladbrokes, Stan James and William Hill.
Realistic Games are licenced and registered on the UK overseas territory of Gibraltar, where they also maintain their game servers. This territory is covered by the UK Gambling Commission, with whom they also hold a Remote Gambling Licence. This means that United Kingdom based players can be reassured that Realistic Games offer a safe and secure gaming experience.
