Just for the Win Slot Machines

When you step into a casino, we’re guessing that you’re there with one goal in mind: to leave with a lot more money than you walked in with. That’s the kind of attitude that may have helped the Just for the Win (JFTW) game development studio come up with their long but memorable name. A brand new player in the industry, the studio was launched in 2016, and plans to release their first games in 2017.

Based out of Gothenburg, Sweden, the team at Just for the Win counts about 20 professional developers among their team, representing 11 different nationalities. The firm’s approach to gaming is rather straightforward, and one that players will likely appreciate: they want to create fun experiences for slots lovers, while providing a level of professionalism that operators and customers will appreciate in all of their products.

A New Name Partners with Old Hands

If you’ve never heard of JFTW before, don’t worry: it isn’t because you’re out of the loop. You’ve probably never seen any of their games before, as their first release is only expected to hit online casinos in May 2017, and even then it will probably be some time before their portfolio rises to the size that it will seriously begin gathering the attention of most players.

But that doesn’t mean that the company hasn’t already gotten their name out there in the industry. If you have heard of the group, it was probably during 2016, when they announced a major partnership with online gambling giant Microgaming. This deal was designed to ensure that Just for the Win’s upcoming games would appear on the Quickfire platform. With over 400 brands using Quickfire, this means that a lot of players will be seeing the JFTW collection in their casinos very soon.

Showing Their Stuff

Still, business deals like that one usually aren’t all that interesting to gamblers, who are focused on one thing over all others: the games themselves. Thankfully, Just for the Win has started to preview their first creation for the public. That occurred at the 2017 ICE Totally Gaming show in London, where they offered up a viewing of their first slot machine: Goldwyn’s Fairies.

Slated for release in 2017, Goldwyn’s Fairies is a 20-line, five-reel slot machine that uses a magical, almost ethereal theme. It’s a game filled with the titular fairies themselves, as well as everything else you’d expect in such a mystical world: like colorful gems and plenty of enchanted symbols.

The machine also features some rather interesting special features. For instance, some of the game’s wild icons are special re-spin wilds, which can trigger instant free re-spins for users. Hitting three scatters can also earn players a trip into a free spins game, where they’ll get 10 additional plays. It’s a neat little package with a fun theme that we think many players will enjoy trying out.

Big Distribution Means a Bright Future

At the moment, there’s only so much that can be said about Just for the Win. With only one game slated for immediate release, it’s hard to get a full picture of what this studio is capable of, and we don’t know how regularly they plan to schedule new releases in the future. The good news is that this isn’t a team of green developers who don’t know what they’re doing: even the initial team that started the company had more than 40 years of combined experience in the iGaming industry, and the team has added even more industry veterans since then.

What we can say, however, is that this is a group that has set themselves up tremendously well for success. By grabbing a place on the Microgaming Quickfire platform, JFTW has ensured that players from around the world will get a chance to play their slots in the months and years to come. That’s a huge victory for the company as it attempts to establish itself in the iGaming landscape. It would also be a major win for players if this studio lives up to its promise. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this up-and-coming software provider, and we recommend that you do, too.
