Classic is eternal but the cool design makes the difference

Classic is eternal but the cool design makes the difference

Keno is a legendary game whose history dates back to the beginning of our era. Chinese - the creators of the games, developed it so much that its popularity helped raise funds to build the Great Wall of China.

Turbo Games has a bit similar approach because the product team bets on its design that it is expected to make Magic Keno popular on Halloween Eve and, accordingly, to bring great wins to players.

The game's interface is bright and catching because of the enormously attractive girl and beautiful animations. The player's task is to choose the frogs from 1 to 40 and observe the result of the girl's magic. The more chosen frogs are lucky enough to eat gold coins - the more significant the winning amount a player gets. If players like to try different strategies, they can experience different difficulty levels that change the coefficients. Additionally, when the betting process starts, a table with the number of chosen frogs and the corresponding winning amount appears on the right side of the game interface. So, it helps a player to understand logic and mathematics.

The feature that the speed-lovers enjoy the most is also available in Magic Keno. Such a feature enables a player to choose the same pattern for opening the blocks for many rounds in a row: either create it on his own or choose from the cute design patterns offered, like hearts, arrows, etc. If a player sticks to the strategy that they believe in, they will win for sure because dripping water wears away a stone not with its strength but with its constancy.

Slava Zhuk, Advisor at Turbo Games, says: "It isn't by accident that gamblers keep playing Keno for ages and don't get bored with it. I'm sure Magic Keno by Turbo Games will add brightness and new experience to the feeling of both: devoted players and newcomers."

Hold on tight, the future is ‘Turbo’ charged!

Hold on tight, the future is ‘Turbo’ charged!

There is always a hint of excitement when any new kid arrives on the block. They can bring a freshness to proceedings, adding something different and, hopefully, exciting. Such is clearly the case with Turbo Games. Headquartered in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, this young studio is approaching the end of only its second year and has already captured the hearts of players and multiplied the revenues of partners.

Head of Sales at Turbo Games is Vadim Potapenko. Not exactly a ‘new kid on the block’ himself, Vadim spent six years heading up sales at Slotegrator before embarking upon this turbo-charged adventure, and so is perfectly placed to bring readers up to speed with what this exciting studio is all about.

Future-oriented game provision

“Turbo Games is a future-oriented provider of cutting-edge gaming products based on the Provably Fair algorithm. Players of our games can be assured of total transparency in every round of the game. Our first game, CrashX, was launched in February 2021. Since then, we have released one new game each month and are now live with 16 games across more than 50 online brands.”

‘Provably Fair’ Games

For those who do not know, the mechanisms behind ‘provably fair’ games are facilitated by cryptographic hashing algorithms. Most commonly, these are random strings of numbers – known as ‘seeds’ – generated by both the server of the gaming site and the player’s hardware device. The great advantage of the provably fair algorithm over traditional mechanisms is that it enables the player to verify the fairness of the game through a publicly available checker. The difference is simplicity and control

This all sounds great, but what we really want to know from Vadim, is what makes Turbo Games different?

“This is easy to answer, it is the games themselves. In addition to provably fair mechanics, our games offer dynamic volatility. This means that players decide which wins they want to play for. Plus, our games are not slots, our core game types are Сrash games (CrashX, CrashX Football Edition, Limbo Rider), Mines games (Mines, Turbo Mines, Bayraktar) and Wheel of Fortune games (Neko, JavelinX).

“The updated CrashX game with double bets, players levels and the Mines games are enjoying particular market impact. The reasons for this are the simplicity and the feeling of control. Players choose tabs with no Mines under them and choose when to cash out. The ability to invent your own strategies and try new tactics is the best thing about our games. They are simple and yet players can exercise greater control.”

Crash games and beyond

“Crash games deliver drama and excitement, but are also simple, with the same mechanics. Players place a bet and follow a coefficient that rises from x1 to infinity. They must then cash out before their rocket crashes. They can cash out at x1.5 or you choose to hold with the rocket until x2500. They choose their own strategy and test their own nerves!

“We are also seeing great interest in our Turbo Mines game and also Turbo Plinko from our most recent releases. And, of course, we have more new mechanics in mind that we will launch soon, so stay with us!”

Continuing to look ahead, Vadim also has an optimistic outlook when it comes to cryptocurrency usage and other payment trends.

“As we can see, crypto is becoming increasingly popular everywhere as more people begin to understand its potential. Should major nations decide to launch their own cryptocurrencies, such as a digital euro, for example, then the entire concept would create an even bigger wave for new players and even greater popularity and opportunity for cryptocurrencies within the gambling industry.”

The challenges that lie ahead

Knowing that our role as commentators is to speculate and forecast, especially in an industry as fast-moving as ours, so we asked Vadim for his thoughts on the challenges that lie ahead. And interestingly, his focus is on formality as much as creativity.

“More and more countries are putting local licences in place and requiring providers to comply with localised guidelines. So the only challenge is to secure licences for each country. And this is only up to the providers, you either have fair RNG or you don’t. And we do, so our task now is to confirm this with every country in which we chose to do business.”

“In terms of focusing on the product landscape, and the competition, I see the iGaming business as a single entity, with everyone playing their part and influencing the greater whole. We respect the work of all our partners and also our competitors, we evolve and grow together.

And for the remainder of 2022, for Turbo Games this will mean four more new games and many new live operator partners, taking our total to more than 100, and we invite everyone who is interested in joining us on this turbo-charged journey to come find out more at SiGMA Europe in Malta!”

Turbo Mode in the Game ‘Mines’ is On - Fasten the Seat Belts

Turbo Mode in the Game ‘Mines’ is On - Fasten the Seat Belts

Classics are eternal, but classics with new improvements are captivating. One of the first Turbo games has undergone visual and functional changes and has transformed into one more game Turbo Mines.

The Head of Product at Turbo Games says: “Visually, this is the successor to the super hit of our classic Mines. We are a young progressive team that improves our product regularly, but not just observes what works well. There is no limit to perfection, especially when you can change quickly and qualitatively to open an even wider potential of Turbo hit.”

What does it mean for the players? The rules remain the same as in Mines, but some additional features modify the perception of the interface and the game pace.

Firstly, it is possible to change the game field size: to 33, 55, 77, and 99. Such modification gives a player a chance to work on their strategy and choose the risk rate. So to say, every round can be absolutely different from all points of view.

Secondly, those players who enjoy speed can experience it in Turbo Mines too. Such a function enables a player to choose the same pattern for opening the blocks for many rounds in a row. If a player sticks to the strategy that they believe in, they will win for sure because dripping water wears away a stone not with its strength but with its constancy. But there is no need to wait, do it in Turbo mode with Turbo Mines.

Turbo Plinko - game destined for fortune

Turbo Plinko - game destined for fortune

Everything in life has its origin and in the 21th century we got used to improving or refining the inventions of our ancestors. The similar story is about a new Turbo release. It originates from the American TV game show that made it the most popular pricing game at that time. Turbo Games has launched its modern Tron style modification called Turbo Plinko.

Behind the scenes Plinko is a classical game of chance where physics plays the main role because it`s thermodynamics that defines the outcome of the offline game. Turbo Plinko is a provably fair digital game in which results are generated using a provably fair system that provides 100% transparency, variable volatility and an RTP of 99 percent.

In Turbo Plinko a player pushes the balls to cascade down the board, bouncing off of the pegs and moving horizontally as well as vertically in the pyramid, until they reach the bottom of the game field, landing in one of the coefficients from 0,2x to 260. The biggest win can be taken reaching the aims in the corners and the lowest is in the middle of the pyramid bottom.

Turbo Plinko is unique because of its crazy mode that allows starting the game with from 5 to 10 balls simultaneously. Accordingly, the winning amount is much more attractive and dynamic than in a game with 1 ball.

As a volatility switch game, Plinko is designed to provide the player gameplay options to control the risk and payouts of the game. In Turbo Plinko there are several option to influence the gameplay and customize it for yourself: Risk Level: Low, Medium & High. The higher the risk level - the bigger potential winning. Rows: 8 - 16 More rows mean more pins that can change the trajectory of the ball, altering the payouts of the game.

Turbo Games` Save the Princess - debut of a pixel art game

Turbo Games` Save the Princess - debut of a pixel art game

The entire iGaming world is striving to satisfy the most demanding players by offering something triggering and special. It's a known fact that the best new is the long-forgotten old. The Turbo Games` team was inspired by retro games and has decided to create a new game with some old fashioned but touching design. Everybody played these types of games in their childhood, didn't they?

A game has 7 stages that a player should go through to succeed and save the princess. This way to the princess is quite dangerous because there are goblins, dragons, vampires and death who can appear behind open doors and end the game. Such protection equipment, like armor, extinguisher and garlic can protect a player in front of a hazard, except death. Of course, the less protection you take at the beginning of the game - the bigger amount of money you will win. So, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The game environment changes with each stage that creates an image of a long challenging way. But what can stop a real hero when the Princess misses him closed on top of the tower? Such a heroic feat сomes with the corresponding music that warms up the atmosphere.

Slava Zhuk, Advisor at Turbo Games, says: “We are excited about the release of Save the Princess because it differs much from all the previous games. We have been learning a lot from the time of Turbo Games` launch and now we put these insights into practice, bringing astonishing new experiences to our players all around the globe.”

Enjoy the game.

Interview with Ksenia Igolkina, Lead Designer at Turbo Games

Interview with Ksenia Igolkina, Lead Designer at Turbo Games

What types of games does Turbo Games` portfolio include? Why this kind, not another one? Turbogames are the so-called “PROVABLY FAIR” games. This kind of game is based on technology that allows the player to make sure that the results are genuine and honest. In other words, this is simple mathematics in the "wrapper" of an entertaining game. That's what I like - playing such games gives a player a chance to touch pure luck. "Environmentally friendly luck" - I would say so. At Turbo Games, we have created several games based on very popular and familiar mechanics - like Mines, Crash, Limbo and so on. At the same time our portfolio has games for every taste - and this is the uniqueness of our selection of games.

With so many games out there, what differentiates Turbo Games from the rest of iGaming content providers?

As a designer, I would say that we are different, because we have a special visual character. We are bold, bright, we are like a fresh breeze. We are assertive and even a bit aggressive. But this is our point. We are not afraid to be misunderstood - because our players are thinking people who want to be on the wave and are open to new things. And, I'll tell you a secret - luck loves such people.

**What are the key guidelines that you follow when designing a new game? Do real life events influence your choice of elements or general idea of the game? **

In the process of designing, we try to adhere to certain algorithms and not go beyond the given UI / UX design, as we have earned a good audience on our first games, and we try not to change UX much from game to game. It should be “comfortable ” in each of our games, so that our players can quickly figure out familiar features. At the same time, we try to use more and more new ideas and embody them graphically. Here we work as a team. We generate ideas, discuss, look for references, and come up with a “plot”. This is great. We have a great team - and everyone from project managers to programmers and testers are super creative people. Therefore, we get such cool games. Sometimes ideas are just in the air, sometimes we get inspired by something... it's always a creative process.

How do you manage to create exciting games for the players? Where do you get inspiration from?

I have a whole collection of completely different pictures on Pinterest - which are not united by a common idea at all, at first glance. But, this is my “chest” with ideas for Turbo Games. I like to start with history. For example, when we came up with our game "Hamsta" - at first it was a hamster who runs around a wooden wardrobe with supplies and steals jam ... at the end, this idea grew into a radioactive cyber-hamster that digs holes in a post-apocalypse and collects various items .

Could you tell us a bit more about current trends? What makes a game successful nowadays?

I think it's definitely important to keep up with new design trends, or marketing, or... just keep up with the news, after all. Games are a very emotional thing, so in order to do something that will cause a response from the user, it must correspond to his/her thoughts today. This is not easy to follow. But we do our best. At the same time, many factors must be taken into account - to make the design not only beautiful for today, but so that it does not become outdated quickly. At the same time, it is necessary to respond to the demands of the public. Furthermore, trends scan the global geopolitical landscape and remind people what is going on in the world through different channels. As Ukrainians, we filled the duty to create military games as Bayraktar & Javelin and to use them as the instruments for transmitting the current Ukrainian reality of cruel unprecedented war to our global audience. So, with the help of the product Turbo Games makes its contribution to support our Homeland in 2 ways:

  • by forming the conscious understanding of the true picture of russian invasion into Ukraine;
  • by attracting the attention of the global community that all the world should be involved to stop this madness. On such a wave we created the game Bayraktar inspired by one of the drones that the Ukrainian military forces use on the battlefields. After it our rating just soared! Therefore, to be successful it is needed to be in & to set trends that have a big sense close to your users` feelings and wishes right now.

What Turbo game do you consider the most successful from a designer's point of view? Why?

I really love Mines. We decided to make them in neomorphism style - that's why the game looks very modern, "tactile" and as clear as possible. A player wants to play it because the effect of "soft buttons" and pleasant clicks is created. In fact, our Mines are practically an anti-stress game. I also love Neko. There is a very cute cat and a very "delicious" environment.

How much time does it take to draw 1 instant game? Do you do it alone?

For over a year I had been drawing the game alone. Now we have 2 designers in our team. As we have an age gap this helps us to cover trends and preferences of different generations. Furthermore, the basis for the development of any game is collective expertise of all the team. What concerns development - well, all games are born in different ways, from a month to three. Depends on the working load.

Finally, what can we expect in the future from TurboGames?

We have extensive plans. But you can be sure - they will be very nicely implemented and it will be a pleasure to play them!

New game release by Turbo Games - JavelinX

New game release by Turbo Games - JavelinX

Having a chance to use such a powerful weapon in the army as Javelin - is the dream of any soldier. Thanks to reliable partners, the Ukrainian army successfully uses it in the war nowadays. Being on the wave, Turbo Games, as a game provider have decided to let its players feel the might of the weapon combined with the big mission - protecting peace by defusing russian military vehicles.

The type of game is so called “wheel of fortune” but the interface of the game resembles the interface of real Javelin with modes, directions and statuses. There are 53 military vehicles of different types in the range, the odds for each vehicle are as follows correspondingly: 25 armored vehicles - 48,14%; 17 battle tanks - 31,48%; 10 helicopters - 18,52%; 1 warship - 1,85%.

The next catching feature is the system of ranks, that is based on the military ranks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces: from “soldier” to “general”. A player gets an upgrade of his rank only if he hits its target. The more he hits, the higher rank he receives.

It's possible to place a bet either on all types of vehicles in the range simultaneously or only on some of them.

On the right side of the game field there is the list of the last hitted targets, it's a statistics that helps to build a strategy. A bit lower, a player can see his personal gamer`s data in JavelinX, his rank and the list of current players with their bets in the very bottom of the page.

Experience the feeling of a warrior of 21th century and help Ukraine (read - civilized democratic world) to win - play [JavelinX](]( !
