Kalamba Games Slot Machines

Kalamba Games is a new online casino software provider that has built a small collection of slots. Since their foundation in 2016, the company has slowly grown both their team and their game selection forming partnerships that have helped them get their software out to as many sites and players as possible.

Kalamba has built their studio from the ground up with an experienced team that strives to stick to particular principles. Their goal is to build innovative and engaging slot machines, while developing rewarding long-term partnerships that will get their offerings out to online gambling sites. Though the company hasn’t built a huge library of titles just yet, their early offerings are interesting and entertaining additions to any casino.

Striving to be the Greatest

Kalamba Games is an international online casino software developer that is based out of both Malta and Krakow, Poland. The company was founded in 2016 by two men with extensive experience in the gaming industry. CEO Steve Cutler has previously served as the COO of GameDesire and Head of Poker for Unibet, while COO Alex Cohen was the Head of Game Design at Quickspin and a senior game designer for IGT. It’s also worth mentioning that they have the financial backing of Vereeni & RB Capital.

A small private firm with less than 50 employees in total, Kalamba – which means “greatest” – has built their team by finding experienced gamers who can help them create next generation games. To make their slots as appealing to both operators and players alike, one of their biggest selling points is their ability to increase engagement through their machines. This is done not only by creating entertaining content, but also by integrating promotional features directly into their games.

One of the most important partnerships developed by Kalamba so far is their agreement with ORYX Gaming. That deal, signed in May 2017, will see Kalamba Games provide titles for the ORYX Gaming platform, which aggregates content from a number of small, independent software providers. The agreement has helped Kalamba overcome one of the biggest obstacles for a new studio: finding a distribution network that can immediately get their games in front of players so that they can start developing a reputation. The studio recently joined forces with Relax Gaming Group as well, aiming to provide a wide variety of games via several operators and Silverbullet platform.

At the moment, the Kalamba Games collection is rather limited. They offer just six titles, which is not a huge output for a company that has been in business for a couple years now. However, each of these machines is unique in terms of gameplay and theme, and the sharp graphics and tight functionality make it clear that these are quality creations.

These unique games are sure to catch your eye when you see them at online casinos. For instance, there’s Dyno Odyssey, a five-reel, 50 line machine with a free spins feature that can be played immediately or delayed to eventually be played with up to three locked wild reels.

Another interesting game is Fire Eagle, which features a six-reel layout with 60 paylines. This game shows how Kalamba can integrate promotions directing into their games using the “missions” system, with players able to pick from easier bronze missions or more difficult platinum level tasks which are completed by collecting symbols throughout gameplay.

Simpler options are available, too. Double Joker is a classic three-reel setup with the fruit, bar, and seven symbols that have been beloved by slots players for generations. But there are modern touches as well, with 10 paylines, joker respins, and the ability to enjoy the mission mechanic here as well.

Ambitious Studio, Bright Future

We’re always excited to see a new software developer that is aiming high, and Kalamba Games certainly fits that description. This company isn’t just churning out mediocre titles to build up a library with a few bright spots. Instead, they’re focusing on crafting each title, to make sure everything they release is high-quality and innovative so that every slot stands out from the crowd.

While you may not have heard of Kalamba just yet, we expect that to change soon. They’ve already appeared at ICE Totally Gaming twice, with Fire Eagle being shortlisted as a “Game to Watch” at the 2018 conference. And while their game selection is small at the moment, they already have a couple more titles in the works, and their rate of production should go up as they hire more developers on their staff.

At the moment, there’s not enough here to suggest you should go out of your way to pick casinos that include these games. But make no mistake: these are quality slots with innovative features, making them well worth a look the next time you’re at a site using the ORYX Gaming platform.
