Meet the Slots Creators – Turbo Games’s Vadim Potapenko Interview

Tell us a bit about yourself. What makes you, you; and why have you chosen to work at Turbo Games?

Sure, I’m more than 8 years in the iGaming business and really like this industry. Otherwise, why would I do this for so many years? :) To be honest, I was super glad to join TurboGames, since I met the team, saw the product and vision - and realized that it’s an opportunity that I should take.

We love big wins, so can you please let us know the top 3 winnings ever paid by Turbo Games?

Sure, who doesn’t? I saw x200 in Mines and x190 in Crash X, that was awesome! Waiting when someone will break the records. So, players are highly welcome to show their skills. Our games are available at: Bitcasino, Sportsbet, Parimatch, Rajabets, CSGO500, Casobet, Betflip, Privatebet.

You have an impressive game portfolio, can you name the best three of them ever released by Turbo Games?

Yeap, my top 3 will be Mines, Fury Stairs, DiceTwice. Of course, I like our latest release of Ball&Ball game but my real favorite will be our future game. I can say that its context is the latest events in the world, keep following @TurboGames and experience on your own.

2021 was a challenging year for all of us. Even so, Turbo Games had multiple releases. Which slot takes the 2021 title of the best Turbo Games release?

Compared to the events that are taking place now in our Homeland Ukraine because of the russian bloody invasion, 2021 - was the prime time for all of us, for the country and even for the world. We keep doing our best to grow and develop the company even in such unstable times when every minute is a gift.

As Turbo Games was launched in the beginning of 2021, so, the previous year was a successful start for us. I would nominate the first game Crash as the best TurboGames release because of its growing demand from the very beginning until now.

Looking to the future, what is the next big release Turbo Games is planning?

As I said, we have been developing a special game based on the context of the Russian war, other details can be discussed after its release. Furthermore, we have a tight pipeline for upcoming games until the end of year. So I can guarantee there will be a game for everyone.

In a market with hundreds of game studios, what would you say is TurboGame’s biggest differentiator?

We bring something new to the iGaming assortment: minimalistic themes and something that everyone knows from their childhood - casual games. And if we are talking about numbers, we have more than 15k bets made by one player. It's because of the game theme that has the highest percentage of retention.

How can you tell if an online slot is going to be a hit or not?

You never know. The same principle works for songs or movies. Mostly, results are unexpected. The main rule is - if you have passion, goal and you do your best to create something good that people will enjoy and have fun - then it will be a hit anyway.

Switching our attention to casinos, with so many options out there, can you let us know which are your top 3 casino preferences?

Well, to be honest, I never play to win :) The best game experience is to play for a long time, and the perfect scenario is to have a deposit that I can easily lose, get a proper win streak, up to x8-x10 from a deposit. And after losing it all, as you saw in the movie «The Gambler» with Mark Wahlberg. That’s why I don’t need any «fast withdrawals» or «welcome bonuses» :D

Did you use to play slots before entering the iGaming industry? Can you share with us your biggest win on an online slot?

Something like x400 in Wild Shark (Amatic) and x1200 in Money Train (Relax).

What are your hobbies?

Everything related to cars.

What has been your biggest challenge and your most significant success in the gambling industry?

All these stories are under NDA :) Most important is the new ones that you will see from the company's announcements!

If you weren’t in the gambling industry, what other industry would you want to work in? I can’t even imagine this!

From Account to Project Manager: interview with Olha Kravchenko

Meet our star Olha! She shared her fascinating story about the transition from one position to another in Turbo Stars company.

Where did you start your way?

I studied chemistry and worked in a lab, but didn’t like the lab coat and test tubes. And finally one day I just found myself in tears. After researching I found an Account Manager position, which I thought would suit me well. So after taking courses, I landed myself the job.

How did you get into iGaming? What kind of emotions does this field evoke in you?

I stumbled into this market by chance. Now I'm thrilled as my journey has exceeded my expectations.

What inspires you in your work, and where do you get your motivation?

I find inspiration in the products I work on and the people I work with. Collaborating with talented individuals on exciting projects motivates me and boosts my productivity.

How do you analyze what can be improved at work?

I reflect on completed tasks to identify areas for improvement and value feedback from others.

Recently you attended a conference in Dubai. What was most memorable for you?

It was surprisingly exciting to see the measure of the conference and I enjoyed meeting the clients I’d corresponded with for almost a year. And the impressive Pin-Up stand and large turnout caught my attention.

How do usually rest and recover?

Sewing clothes brings me a sense of calmness, I enjoy the challenge of transforming unusual materials into something wearable, preferring to use yellow suede, pink fur, and leopard denim. Also, I enjoy workouts in the gym and a beer to fill up my energy 😄

What made you change your career?

I recently found myself frustrated, so my company kindly offered me a few options. After a lot of thought, I finally made my decision

What do Account and Project Managers roles have in common?

Communication is a key role in both project and account management positions. I prioritize the needs of my team over those of the client. While making the client happy is essential, it cannot be achieved without a content and motivated team! So I am here for that!

We hope this interview was interesting and inspiring for you!
