Sebastian Damian, Managing Director for 3 Oaks discusses plans for 2023, including new slots in the pipeline and how they’re looking at gamification as a means to strengthen player engagement and attract a new demographic.
With 3 Oaks now an established games distributor, what makes your slots so appealing to operators and players?
There is a combination of factors at play here in what makes 3 Oaks Gaming’s slots so appealing. Firstly, the graphics are superb and deliver smooth transitions to enhance the user experience. We build games around popular mechanics, including the renowned Hold and Win concept. This ensures that operators and players are receiving a slot that they know will deliver in all facets. Alongside the immersive gameplay, our promotional tools complement the overall experience and offer the best in gamification. Not only do they elevate the core gameplay, but they serve as an effective way to strengthen retention rates for operators.
This year has seen the launch of new games Goddess of Egypt and Sunlight Princess. How have these two titles performed so far?
These two slots have given us a great start to 2023. Goddess of Egypt was the first to be released and has proven to be a real hit with operators so far. Sunlight Princess has only just been launched but we expect this title to have the potential of being one of our very best yet. The reason why our slots, such as these two, have been successful is because we use popular themes that resonate with players but we also put our own unique twist onto the gameplay that gives players a completely new experience when it comes to playing games from within our portfolio.
What makes games like these so successful?
Let’s start with Sunlight Princess! This is our newest game and could well be a shining light for the company as we carry on our hard work throughout 2023. This slot offers an incredible five jackpots, including our unique Royal Jackpot, which is worth a phenomenal 10,000x a player’s stake. In addition to that we are able to offer a Super Bonus Game, A Bonus Game and the classic Free Spins mode. The array of dazzling and different features that could lead a player to win big are what makes a title like Sunlight Princess so successful. Goddess of Egypt has also made waves on the market with various operators and the big pull of this slot is the Free Spins that offer a variety of multipliers, embedded into the classic Cascading Reels feature. Players and operators can relate to all of our games but putting our own stamp on these gives us that edge.
In terms of game releases, how do you see 2023 panning out?
As we have said, it has been a brilliant start to the year and the main mission for us at 3 Oaks is that we never want to rest on our laurels. We want to release a memorable game and then always see how we can improve upon it. We already have at least another five titles to be released over the spring and we will continue to introduce a variety of mechanics that will enhance our portfolio of slots. As we are now an established distributor in the iGaming industry, it is important that any future releases give operators and players a completely different outlook from other new games so that we stand out from the crowd.
Are there any new products and solutions 3 Oaks are looking to release?
In addition to strengthening our slots portfolio, we have plans to develop more promotional tools that can strengthen player engagement and attract a new demographic to our popular library. Our aim is to be game-changers within the sector and we are looking at unique gamification concepts to make our offering one of a kind. Other than that, we will continue to strive to strengthen and expand all areas of the business and our future looks like a very exciting one!
