- Octavian Gaming
The slots design arm of the company is best known for titles such as Magic Flood, Queen Cleopatra and Royal Towers. A dedicated team of young Linux programmers exploit the muscle of the powerful ARM and x86 Intel chipsets to bring high-quality graphics, sound and gameplay to the forefront of their work.
Magic Flood is a classic video slot game with a fruity personality. With five reels and 10 paylines set against a graphic-enhancing black background, it’s deceptively simple. Nine regular symbols – lemons, plums, cherries, watermelons, oranges, grapes and three different 7s – make up the entire line-up. With this game, the company is really trying to take players back to the good old days of casino gaming, and it seems to be working.
The game Queen Cleopatra has a similar look and feel to Magic Flood. The same five-reel and 10-payline system is in place, and the black background makes the graphics really pop – but that’s where the similarities end. In this game, players are treated to a different retro feel featuring all the playing card faces plus the special icons relating to Ancient Egypt. Queen Cleopatra also offers a gambling function designed to play like a pinball machine, where players can go double or nothing.
In Royal Towers, the same black background is used to good effect to set off the game’s many features, with Wilds and Scatters leading to exciting, high-octane, multi-round bonus games. The same five-reel and 10-payline system is in place, and it has become a marker of Octavian Gaming. This combination allows players plenty of on-screen interest while offering a manageable number of paylines.
A Reputation Worth Protecting
In all Octavian’s offerings and products, the quality comes across clearly. They aren’t aiming to churn out game after game with the hope of picking up new players with new game titles. Each game is well thought out and offers something different from existing titles in their catalogue. This ensures the Verona outfit will remain a name in games for years to come.
