Wazdan, the innovative games provider, has gone live with Swiss-facing operator Casinò Lugano, launching its products through the business’ online brand Swiss4Win.

The partnership has seen a number of Wazdan’s innovative titles added to the casino, including top-performing 9 Lions, as well as Hold the Jackpot hits Power of Gods: Hades and Sun of Fortune.

While playing the slot titles Swiss4Win customers will also be able to enjoy Wazdan’s Player Engagement Suite, including the impressive adjustable Volatility Levels™, Cash Drop promotions, new innovative in-game features, and more. What is more, Swiss4Win perfomed a Cash Back promotion with Wazdan titles.

The deal marks additional growth for the experienced provider as it continues its impressive trajectory across Europe, following recent partnerships with the likes of Soccerbet, BetOlimp, Napoleon Sports & Casino, and PressEnter Group.

Founded in 1912, Casinò Lugano last year has received an extension to its permit to offer online casino games in the Swiss market. Its online brand, Swiss4Win, grants players access to a wide offer of slots, jackpots, table games, live casino games, and many exclusive promotions.

Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: We are thrilled to have taken a selection of our renowned titles live with Casinò Lugano and its online brand Swiss4Win.

“We’re confident in our ability to deliver incredible content to Swiss players, giving them previously unseen levels of control over their experiences with our proprietary suite of personalisation tools.”

Paolo Sanvido, CEO and Board Member at Casinò Lugano SA said: “Casinò Lugano has a strong history of partnering with businesses that share its passion for delivering exceptional gaming experiences. For this reason, we are delighted to have partnered with Wazdan, and look forward to enjoying the benefits of the collaboration.”

Wazdan, the global supplier of igaming products, has further expanded its footprint in Switzerland after partnering with Grand Casino Baden.

Wazdan’s top-performing slots went live on the operator’s Jackpots.ch brand, which was the first legalised online casino in the country.

The deal will allow Jackpots.ch customers to enjoy Wazdan’s top-performing 9 Lions slot, as well as leading Hold the Jackpot titles, such as Power of Gods™: Hades, Sun of Fortune, and Fortune Reels, which combine innovative mechanics with immersive environments. Players will also be able to try the recent hit Magic Spins™ which introduced the new Collect to Infinity™ mechanism.

Wazdan will also provide its Customisation Suite, including the hugely popular Volatility Levels™ feature, which gives players the opportunity to adjust a game’s volatility to their preference.

The deal continues the impressive commercial momentum for Wazdan since the turn of the year, with the supplier recently partnering with 7 Melons, Ruby Seven Studios, and SoccerBet.

Bekki D’Agata, Head of Business Development for Europe and North America at Wazdan, said: “Regulated market growth has long been a priority for us, and we’re thrilled to be growing our presence in Switzerland with the exciting Jackpots.ch brand.

“Our comprehensive array of popular slots will bring diversity and excitement to its players, and we can’t wait to see the results of this relationship.”

Nathalie Haspel, Team Lead Product Management at Jackpots.ch said: “Wazdan brings a games portfolio of considerable innovation and breadth, combining exciting themes with an impressive retinue of mechanics and features, and we feel it will resonate extremely well with our customer base.”

Wazdan, the innovative games provider, has taken a swathe of its games live with Switzerland-based operator 7 Melons – an online casino owned by Grand Casino Kursaal Bern AG.

The partnership will initially see 7 Melons benefit from a batch of 20 of Wazdan’s top-performing slots, including its hit game, Power of Gods: Hades.

While playing the slot titles, 7 Melon’s customers will also be able to enjoy Wazdan’s Player Engagement Suite, including the impressive Volatility Levels™ and other adjustable features, delivering a real sense of agency to players.

7melons.ch offers online slots, roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and poker products, in addition to its Live Casino portfolio. The offer is broad and offers something suitable for every player.

It’s been another successful month for Wazdan, including the release of two new games, taking part in the SBC North America Summit, going live with a number of new partners, and being nominated for two SBC Awards.

Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “We’re delighted to see such a diverse selection of our innovative games go live with 7 Melons.

“The operator consistently makes some of the most engaging titles available to its players and we couldn’t be happier that our own games can now be enjoyed by them.”

Ludwig Nehls, CEO at 7 Melons, said: “It’s an ambition of ours to have the best games on the market to keep our customers satisfied and attract more.

“With that in mind, we were adamant that we needed Wazdan’s games as part of our offering as they consistently bring something new to the table.”

Gamification, and the personalisation of gaming experiences, is often overlooked or misconstrued by the igaming sector. But according to Andrzej Hyla, CCO at Wazdan, research shows that customisation is not only essential in the maximisation of user experience but also in the retention of new players. Here he explains how customisation can increase engagement, promote customer retention, increase player lifetime value, and drive revenue growth.

What does Wazdan do to provide its players with a greater level of customisation over their gaming experiences?

There are many things that come to mind that differentiate Wazdan from our competitors in the market, but the real difference stems from our obsession with delivering an unparalleled player experience.

Supplying audiences with customisable content is a proven way to increase engagement. By developing an innovative range of in-game features that instantly set our games apart, we have been able to improve customer journeys while also driving revenue growth for our partners. Our Freedom of Choice™ suite caters to each and every player’s preference and enables them to create an unforgettable gaming experience for themselves.

Inventive mechanics such as the Buy Feature, which allows players to enjoy all aspects of the game by entering the bonus round at any time, and Cash Drop, which rewards players with random cash prizes, serve as real differentiators by creating unique outcomes for each and every round played. 

The jewel in Wazdan’s gamification crown – Volatility Levels™ – allows players to modify their win size and frequency as they please, with high volatility mode delivering less frequent, more sizable wins, and low volatility providing the opposite. 

No other supplier in the igaming space provides end-users with this level of agency over their games, which stands in accordance with our mission of giving players the freedom of choice in all of their experiences.

Has the gamification of your offering had any sort of profound effect on player engagement and retention?

Offering tools that boost player engagement has become a highly contested space for competing operators and suppliers. Our flagship promotional tool, Cash Drop, has been designed in this knowledge, allowing operators to set up unique promotions for players that are then managed from Wazdan’s end. This ensures that no additional resources are wasted, keeping promotions up and running.

Designed in compliance with partner and user feedback for the ultimate intuitive experience, Cash Drop is a completely customisable promotional tool that awards random prizes to players. It tangibly helps operators drive engagement and retention by providing an enhanced gaming experience without interrupting the gameplay. 

The value of the tool is evident across the entire collection of participating operator partners, who, on average, see an increase of 219% in unique active players, 265% in game rounds, and 366% in bet sum when running the promotion. 

What new forms of gamification are we seeing arriving on the scene, and which ones have proven effective so far?

Gamification is not a new topic, having been discussed in the igaming industry for many years now, but it has become the hot new battleground for operators and providers in recent times. However, its full potential is yet to be fully explored in the igaming space.

First and foremost, gamification has always been a key aspect of the user experience. New generations of casino players are always on the lookout for innovative and unique gaming experiences. Therefore, there’s been a real push in the industry to develop novel solutions that attract new players and retain existing ones in order to build long-term engagement. 

It’s a broad subject and can be approached from the perspective of the operator and also the game developer. Operators naturally see gamification as more of a tool to attract new players and reward the most loyal and active users on the platform, using bonuses and promotions to stand out from other businesses. Gamification that boosts loyalty, such as VIP reward systems, tournaments, and loyalty schemes, is of paramount importance to operators.

In contrast, game developers view gamification as an opportunity to implement exciting functions into game engines in order to boost engagement and the challenge presented by a given product. Giving players a sense of agency over their experiences makes them feel valued and creates an environment that they are happy to return to, time and time again.

Delivering mini-games within games to boost wins, skill-based bonus rounds, and mission-based accomplishments are some of the ways that developers seek to boost engagement. At Wazdan, we do our best to support retention with unique features and elements that allow for greater flexibility and customisation within the products. Our gamification solutions are extremely effective, and as mentioned earlier, our partners have seen fantastic results when using our tools and promotions. 

Are there any exciting products or special features in the roadmap for 2022?

Our roadmap for the rest of 2022 is packed with thrilling themes, more unique features, and promotional tools that continue to benefit both players and operators. This year, we’ve been releasing more games than ever before, with two new titles hitting the casino grids almost every month, rather than the monthly release schedule that we used to follow. 

Our Player Engagement Suite, including the newly released Collect to Infinity™ and Cash Infinity™ features, guarantees next-level engagement and allows operators to generate better results. In the upcoming months, we’ll release more engagement-boosting solutions, including the thrilling Wild Rampage bonus round with the Hold & Collect™ mechanism, and the new Sticky to Infinity feature. 

With exciting releases like Sizzling Kingdom™: Bison, 9 Burning Stars™, Burning Sun™, and two additions to our popular Hot Slot™ series, Magic Bombs and Magic Pearls, set to be launched in the coming months, it’s lining up to be an action-packed second half of the year for Wazdan fans.

We have delivered captivating gaming experiences to the industry since 2010 and will continue to bring innovation to the space in the years to come. With recent games like Magic Spins™, Sizzling Eggs™, and 9 Coins™, offering some of the most inventive features on the market, there is plenty for us to shout about as we continue on our impressive growth trajectory.

Andrzej Hyla, CCO at igaming solutions provider Wazdan, speaks about how the recent launch of its trademarked Collect to Infinity™ and Cash Infinity™ mechanics has supercharged its slot portfolio, delivering considerable engagement value to the products in which they appear. 

“Wazdan’s philosophy of supporting partner growth through a commitment to innovation and finding new ways to expand our player engagement suite has continued to pay dividends in recent months,” according to Wazdan COO Andrzej Hyla.

Talking about the launch of the firm’s Collect to Infinity™ and Cash Infinity™ mechanics, he said: “We see ourselves as facilitators of growth, with innovation as our driving force. We fulfill this status by providing our partners and players with best-in-class slot products and a constantly enhanced selection of cutting-edge personalization tools.

“Each of our pioneering solutions is well received by players and known to increase their engagement and deliver proven results to operators. It’s no different with our new Collect to Infinity™ and Cash Infinity™ mechanics. In fact, thanks to the innovative Collect to Infinity™ feature, our recently released Magic Spins™ slot has already outperformed the previously best-performing games.”       

Focusing first on Collect to Infinity™, Hyla explained: “The new Collect to Infinity™ feature is another one of Wazdan’s added-value solutions that promise to please even the most demanding players and enhance their experience through high immersion levels. At its core, the innovative mechanism is intended to offer players increased engagement, and it’s an excellent retention-boosting tool that amplifies casinos’ results.” 

So far, Wazdan has released two games with the Collect to Infinity™ feature, Magic Spins™, and Sizzling Eggs™, in which players can get a taste of the truly game-changing experience that the mechanism offers. These thrilling games abound with exceptional, seemingly endless bonus rounds and provide a truly immersive experience.     

Turning to Cash Infinity™, the COO continued: “Our brand-new Cash Infinity™ mechanic, introduced in our latest release 9 Coins™, is a totally game-changing solution that increases the chances of activating the bonus round. This easy-to-understand feature guarantees next-level engagement and allows operators to generate better results.”

According to Hylathe patented features are offered as part of the Hold the Jackpot or Free Spins bonus rounds. He said: “Casino operators can supercharge their grids with our recently launched top-performing titles, Magic Spins™, Sizzling Eggs™, or 9 Coins™, by allowing players to enjoy the truly game-changing experience that the mechanics offer 

“Enchanting players with a stunning design and the innovative features that our titles are notorious for, Magic Spins™ goes above and beyond to deliver a truly magical experience. The innovative Collect to Infinity™ feature appears in the Hold the Jackpot bonus and has the ability to deliver spell-binding outcomes that players want to return to, time and time again.”

He added: “Sizzling Eggs™ takes players to a mythical realm filled with flaming-hot phoenix eggs. The remarkable Collect to Infinity™ feature is available in the Free Spins round, giving players the ability to trigger seemingly endless combinations and outcomes, and demonstrating its engagement and entertainment value.     

“Our latest release, 9 Coins™, stuns players with the innovative Cash Infinity™ symbols. They may land in the base game, making it truly riveting, and stick to the reels until triggering the Hold the Jackpot bonus game.

“Our upcoming hit, Sizzling Kingdom™: Bison, will offer three exciting bonus rounds. Two of them, the Hold the Jackpot bonus game and Free Spins round, will allow players to enjoy the Collect to Infinity™ capabilities. We can’t wait to see if the third feature, the brand-new Wild Rampage bonus game with the Hold & Collect™ mechanism, will become as popular as the player-favorite Collect to Infinity™ and Cash Infinity™ features.”

Commenting on Wazdan’s commitment to its partners’ performance, Hyla stated: “Casino operators can benefit from providing their players with products that incorporate our innovative solutions, proven to increase players’ engagement and drive revenue growth for partners.     

“We are on a mission to provide our partners and players with the most advanced features on the market in a bid to deliver tangible value to both parties. Never one to sit back to reap the rewards of our hard work, we are always on the lookout for the next innovation that can help us stand out from the crowd. 

“By consistently enhancing our offering and adding new engagement-boosting solutions, we stay true to our promise of supporting growth through a commitment to innovation, and we are starting to receive widespread recognition of this.”

Wazdan, the innovative slots supplier, has received recognition at the recent SBC Awards North America Awards with a Silver Winner Award in the category of Rising Star in Casino.

Recognising the impressive achievements of operators and suppliers from across the iGaming landscape, the SBC Awards North America is one of the most prestigious shows of the year, providing plenty of networking opportunities and excitement for all attendees.

The Silver Winner title marks yet another respected awards ceremony that recognises the meteoric rise of Wazdan as a supplier. The company entered the North American market last year, and already holds licecnces in Michigan, New Jersey, West Virginia, and Ontario.

Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, said: “We’re extremely proud to have won a Silver Winner Award at the SBC Awards North America in the Rising Star in Casino category. We’re delighted to have been recognised at an awards ceremony of this magnitude and prestige.

“Considering the large quantity of up-and-coming businesses in the North American landscape, this award serves as recognition of the impressive momentum that we are building on the continent. We would like to extend our congratulations to all the other winners.”

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions today. Could you start by introducing yourself and telling us a little about your position within the company?

As Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan, it is my job to oversee the work of our sales and account management teams to guarantee that our clients receive the best possible service. With more than 12 years’ worth of experience in iGaming, I have been part of the journey since the very start, and I am so proud of how far we have come, getting our games licensed and certified in more than 20 regulated markets as things stand.

It has been a real pleasure watching the company grow as the industry has continued to expand, and I am so excited to see what the future holds for our business.

Our readers always like to get a little insight into the history of a game developer, so could you give us some background on Wazdan?

Wazdan is a globally recognised slot supplier that blends cutting-edge technology with immersive experiences to facilitate modern player preferences. Established in 2010 by a small group of gaming enthusiasts with a shared passion for innovation in iGaming, we are committed to delivering advanced content that stands out from the crowd.

In an industry as fast-moving as ours, we have managed to thrive by bringing enthusiasm and passion for games that is unparalleled, and this is evident in the finalised products. Now boasting a portfolio of more than 150 HTML5 slots, the catalogue has titles for fans of the classic genre to cutting-edge graphics, mechanics, and gamification tools, ensuring players have something to enjoy regardless of their preferences.

There are plenty of other slot developers out there in the world of iGaming. What would you say makes your games stand out from other competitors in the market?

Plenty of things come to mind when asked what differentiates our games and products from our competitors’, and this stems from our passion for delivering unparalleled player experiences in every game that we develop.

We recently bolstered our roadmap to facilitate the launch of a minimum of 18 annual releases, and by developing an innovative range of in-game features that neatly complement our titles, we have been able to improve the user experience while also driving revenue growth for the business.

Our Freedom of Choice™ initiative, alongside our Player Engagement Suite, cater to every demographic of players while facilitating them in enjoying memorable gaming experiences.

Innovative mechanics such as the Collect to Infinity™ and Cash Infinity™ allow us to fulfil the requirements of modern players, enhancing their gameplay by increasing their engagement and boosting the potential for lucrative wins. We also provide a Buy Feature, which allows players to enjoy all aspects of a game by entering the bonus round at any time, and Cash Drop, which rewards players with random cash prizes.

When it comes to creating and developing an online slot, what would you say are the key factors in making a successful title?

Modern players expect more entertainment and rewards from casino products than ever before, which means it is imperative to explore new concepts and invest in the peripherals of a slot. By developing titles with gripping themes, stunning graphics, and intuitive sound effects, we are able to attract players to our portfolio, and that is when the lure of our innovative features comes into play.

By developing eye-catching products that also provide impressive win potential and cash prizes, we have created a formula that allows us to consistently innovate on successful slot titles and games collections.

We play dozens of slots weekly here at DemoSlot, but we have to say that the overall production of your games is amongst the best we have seen. Have your design team been with you since the beginning of your journey as a company?

We really appreciate it when we get feedback as positive as this – thank you! As previously mentioned, we started as quite a small team of iGaming enthusiasts over a decade ago, and some of the members of our current design team have been with us since the start of the journey, and therefore understand what it takes to remain operational as a leading content supplier.

That said, our company is growing and is always on the lookout for passionate, talented individuals that can bring something useful to the team.

You have a very strong portfolio of games behind you, but if you had to pick just 3 personal favourites what would they be?

There are so many games that stand out to me as strong examples of what we can offer, but a couple of our more recent titles and an all-time Wazdan hit stand out to me as my personal favourites.

9 Lions is a game that needs no introduction, picking up a G2E Asia Hot Product Award in 2018 and asserting itself as a real staple of Wazdan’s collection over the past few years. Featuring a stunning design and a vibrant oriental theme, the game provides players with generous bonuses and seemingly endless action thanks to its nine separate playing fields.

Nominated for various honours at the recent CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards, AskGamblers Awards, and the EGR North America Awards, Power of Gods™: Hades is a Hold the Jackpot title that takes players on a visual journey across the River Styx, allowing them to enter the underworld in the thrilling bonus round with prizes up to 5000x player’s bet.

The recently launched game Magic Spins™ is my last choice, and coincidentally also belongs to the Hold the Jackpot collection, enchanting players with its stunning design, innovative mathematics, and a brand-new Collect to Infinity™ feature that allows players to accumulate Cash symbol values up to an infinite amount!

We’re now firmly into 2022, but how did covid affect you as a company? Particularly in 2021?

We faced many challenges over the past couple of years due to the pandemic with all in-person events being cancelled, serving as a great blow to the industry. While it was very challenging setting up flexible working environments for all our employees and getting them settled in remote locations, we didn’t let it slow us down. However, we couldn’t be more grateful to be back in the office and spending time together again, socialising, collaborating, and brainstorming without any obstacles.

In this respect, our recent entry into the US states of New Jersey, Michigan, and West Virginia should be seen as a huge success and serves as a testament to our team’s incredible ability to operate at full capacity, despite being more fragmented than ever before. We were also able to launch our Hold the Jackpot collection, which now features more than 10 titles and has quickly established itself as a jewel in Wazdan’s innovation crown.

What do you think player preferences will be in the next few years? Do you see VR catching on in the iGaming space?

The latest innovation that we’ve been hearing about is the emergence of VR, the metaverse, and all of the potential it holds for the industry. That said, while its evolution is an area of great interest to us, it’s not one that we are too focused on at present.

There will always be those looking to become pioneers in a specific field in iGaming, looking beyond the horizon in terms of strategy to locate these emerging technologies, but as far as we’re concerned, we’re clear that our focus needs to be on delivering mobile-first games that offer great mathematics, fantastic themes, and a level of customisation that competing products fall short of.

Wazdan really does seem to be going from strength to strength. What are your overall goals as a company over the next decade?

In terms of our priorities in the more immediate future, North America is a region of great importance for us. We’re planning to enter additional US markets such as Pennsylvania, after having recently been granted supplier license in Ontario, Canada, and we continue our mission of establishing footholds in newly regulated markets across the globe.

Regarding our games, we will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that they meet the strict standards set by the industry’s regulators. Our roadmap for the rest of the year is packed with more thrilling themes, unique mechanics, and promotional tools that will continue to benefit both players and operators alike.

So far this year, we have ramped up our production to deliver more games than ever before and invested significantly in the infrastructure of markets that we are committed to, which keeps the doors open to a number of exciting opportunities in the future. Furthermore, with a number of exciting trade shows and industry events fast approaching, we look forward to making the most of the networking opportunities available and catching up with our many industry acquaintances.

To wrap up, could you share with us any exciting news or games that you have in the pipeline for the remainder of the year?

It has been an incredibly fruitful year for us so far, having been shortlisted for several awards at a number of recognised shows, and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for us as the year unfolds. We recently received two shortlists at the SBC Awards in the headline categories of Innovation in Mobile and Casino / Slots Developer of the Year, and picked up two awards at the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards having been nominated for five categories. Though the icing on the cake was being personally recognised with a shortlist for Manager Idol of the Year at the upcoming iGaming IDOL Awards.

There is so much to be proud of in terms of what we have achieved this year alone, but in order to maximise value for our players and clients, we keep our focus on the times ahead of us and how we can use this to better our standings in the industry.

Players will need to keep their eyes peeled for 9 Coins™, which has just been launched with a brand-new Cash to Infinity™ mechanic, as well as the Norse-inspired Hold the Jackpot title, Power of Gods™: Valhalla. Our upcoming Sizzling Kingdom™: Bison slot will feature three exciting bonus rounds, including the brand-new Wild Rampage feature, Hold the Jackpot bonus round, and Free Spins with the player-favorite Collect to Infinity™ feature. It’s a game release worth waiting for!
