Casino Dashboard: March 2022 – Casinos and Gaming


Love is dead and a fish is for a lifetime, not just for Christmas (…or Valentine’s or Easter). Kevin Dale looks at the life cycle of casino games and the top game and dealer rankings that are common around the world.

It’s been almost a year since Piggy Riches Megaways (Red Tiger) first hit the charts and it’s back! The only relevant thing that has happened since then has been the launch of sister title Doggy Riches Megaways. Also, Hyper Strike (Gameburger Studios) is back thanks to the recently released stable Hyperspins Hyperspins.

New twists that give life to old games are nothing new and are always welcomed by game creators. It’s not quite the same as the newbies who have achieved indie success, and Blueprint’s Fishin Frenzy Fortune Spins did exactly that this month. There’s still time, though, and by April, the super-spinning puppy sequel may still be gaining a foothold.

Thanks to the Microgaming distribution network, two brand new games also hit the charts: Aztec Falls (Northern Lights game) and Captain Blackjack Adventures (Just For The Win). Charts are more likely to succeed when you have market access but the game still needs to execute. After all, the two studios are still competing with more than a dozen related businesses, including Gameburger Studios, which has had longstanding success with the likes of Hyper Strike and 9 Pots Of Gold.

From a clickbait perspective, the Aztec/Coinfall combo can’t go wrong, while the genre-busting promise of Blackjack/Pirate Slot games will lead to attempts. The fact that the latter doesn’t actually offer a genre mix may mean that stickiness remains elusive.

With Microgaming currently restructuring its business, it will be interesting to see if this affects game releases and performance in the coming months.

When it comes to love, we’re not making a Valentine’s Day chart like this, but a tribute to the romantically inclined studio director…

Espresso Games, Spinomenal, and Bgaming have all made Valentine’s Day series or versions of existing games. Play’n GO seems to weave calendar events into their game-making process better than most. Five horror titles for Halloween and three new romantic titles for Valentine’s Day. Love Joker, 15 Crystal Roses, and Asgard: Freya’s Wedding have all launched over the past few weeks, and they’re looking good.

Next year, if they’re brave enough, they might even try out the “Love Of Dead” title, which has the potential to whip their “…Of Dead” horses up the charts. Let’s not forget that horror and romance overlap nicely – see our Halloween and Valentine’s Day charts.

Inspired Entertainment launched Stacked Valentine Hearts only to find it outperformed its own Big Fishing Fortune, so maybe an example of Fish 2: Calendar theme 0!

A fish lasts a lifetime, not just Christmas (or Valentine’s Day, etc.), but not many fish live that long. Standard games follow a typical peak-descent curve, with only a few slowing or postponing parts of the decline.

In this sense, we should all strive to produce the equivalent of Greenland sharks (272, according to Google). Shark Blackjack Bonanza anyone?

However, seasonal competitions may be an exception. Some go big, like the Christmas Big Bass Bonanza. Many others follow the heartbeat revenue curve as they get dusted off and launched every year, if we remember to do so… After a quiet January, the deals between studios and platform providers are back , but the 2021 frenzy is still some way off: there seems to be more evidence that our distribution network is maturing.
