Gamblorium.se interview with Izabela Slodkowska-Popiel: Catching chemistry with Gamblorium
Gamblorium.se had the opportunity of interviewing Izabela Slodkowska-Popiel, Head of Account Management for North America and Latin America at Wazdan.
Hi Iza! Let us start with that as our first question; how does the future look for Wazdan? Do you have any specific plans for the coming months?
Thank you for having me! To put things plainly, the future is looking extremely bright for Wazdan as we continue on our trajectory to becoming a truly global business. We have recently entered a number of new regulated markets, including Spain, Bulgaria, Ontario, Michigan, and the Netherlands. We will continue to further develop our partnerships in regulated markets around the world while working towards new certifications, including newly regulated US markets like Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
The past few months alone have seen us presented with the Best Online Casino Provider title at the CEEG Awards, a silver award at the SBC Awards North America in the category of Rising Star in Casino, and two awards at the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards in the categories of Best Slots Provider in the Baltics and Rising Star in Nordic Online Casino Technology. We have also been shortlisted for many more awards and look forward to the upcoming SiGMA Europe Awards ceremony, where we’ve been nominated for the Game Provider of the Year award. These prestigious industry recognitions strengthen our confidence in the business as well as the products we deliver, serving as tangible evidence of the innovation they bring to the market.
We have recently attended SBC Barcelona and G2E Las Vegas – both of which were fantastic experiences and provided ample opportunities for us to showcase our pioneering products and engagement-boosting features such as Collect to Infinity™, Cash Infinity™, and Sticky to Infinity™. We thoroughly enjoyed catching up with our industry colleagues and partners, and now turn our attention to SiGMA Europe in Malta which presents the next opportunity in the iGaming events calendar for us to platform our upcoming games, like Hot Slot™: Magic Pearls and Burning Sun™.
We have noticed that you had a game launch in the past few days, can you tell us something about the game and what kind of features it has?
Hot Slot™: Magic Bombs is a new addition to our popular Hot Slot™ series. This exciting game offers lively, action-packed gameplay and two innovative features – Collect to Infinity™ and Sticky to Infinity™ – allowing players to immerse deeply in the game’s explosive action.
Collect to Infinity™ has already proved to increase retention rates and drive revenue growth for our partners. In this new slot, players can land Free Spins Collector symbols that stick to the reels until the Free Spins round is triggered and increase the number of Free Spins won.
Developed to generate better results for our partners, the brand-new Sticky to Infinity™ mechanic allows players to stick Jackpot Mystery symbols to the reels until the end of the Free Spins bonus round and win multiple Jackpots.
Our top-performing Hot Slot™ collection will soon be extended with the addition of Hot Slot™: Magic Pearls in November and Hot Slot™: Mystery Jackpot Joker in December, so stay tuned!
You have also recently started collaborating with the Belgian online casino Napoleon Sports & Casino, can you tell us anything about that?
The deal with Napoleon Sports & Casino reaffirms our position in the regulated European landscape, with the prominent brand offering a number of our top-performing titles, including Sun of Fortune, Magic Fruits Deluxe, and Sizzling Moon™, bringing safe and thrilling entertainment to its online players.
Since our inception as a brand, it has been our aim to collaborate and grow with partners whose values and goals reflect our own, and for that reason, we were delighted to expand our operations in Belgium with Napoleon Sports & Casino. The brand has a thorough understanding of its customer base, and we have enjoyed seeing their players react positively to our games.
What is your view on the collaboration with Gamblorium and what are your expectations?
We derive considerable value from working in collaboration with our established media partners, and we are thrilled to be featured by reputable industry publishers, which provide unbiased information about our products and operations directly to the players.
We are totally committed to our relationship with Gamblorium, which sees us produce high-quality content for its readers, holding the quality of our editorial content to the same standard as we do our game releases. We have been thoroughly satisfied with our collaboration to date and look forward to enjoying a long and harmonious relationship with the brand.
Is there something you would like to say to Wazdan’s players and to the readers of Gamblorium?
Our main strength has always been the emphasis we consistently place on the player experience, so our customers will be glad to hear that we are hatching a number of thrilling new slot games in the months ahead. We stay true to our commitment to innovation and the Freedom of Choice™ in every experience that we deliver, with our philosophy of supporting partner growth through a commitment to originality and finding new ways to expand our player engagement suite continuing to pay dividends.
As SiGMA Europe edges closer, we turn our attention to our upcoming games Hot Slot™: Magic Pearls and Burning Sun™, with the experiences utilising two of our engagement-boosting features, Hold the Jackpot and Sticky to Infinity™. These engagement-enhancing solutions also help operator partners boost retention rates and amplify casino results by offering the best-in-class technology. We’d like to invite everyone to booth B46 to see our new and upcoming games and features. We look forward to meeting you there!
