Double Nominations for Slots by Fugaso

Fugaso online slots score dual nominations in AG Awards.

Unless you’ve been around the iGaming industry as long as I have, appreciating an inside look at what makes this business tick, you may not realize just how many software labs are out there, building the digital games we wager on every day. Obviously, slot machines don’t create themselves. They’re the industry’s biggest money makers; especially the ones that become the most popular among players. As such, there are dozens upon dozens of gaming studios building them, all hoping their latest creation will become the ‘next big thing‘.

Such honors usually go to the older brand – the biggest companies that produce the highest number of games per calendar year. Rarely do we see a smaller, independent lab with a comparably minuscule portfolio being recognized by the iGaming community. When it does happen, it’s enough to turn heads. If it happens twice in a single sitting – as is the case with a pair of extremely popular slots by Fugaso – it’s cause for great celebration.

Fugaso Online Slots Score Double Noms in AG Top 20 of 2019

Fugaso is about as newcomer as newcomer gets. The company made its official debut at ICE 2019 in February, blowing away attendees of the event with a collection of comically inclined new slot machines. They debuted Trumpt It Deluxe, a game that pokes fun at Donald Trump and a few other political leaders; Stoned Joker, a typical fruit machine in many ways, except that the wild joker is puffing away on a doobie; and Super Hamster, a game featuring a cute but paranoid rodent scientist hellbent on perfecting anti-virus technology.

Fugaso's Funniest Online Slot Machines

Needless to say, Fugaso quickly attracted the attention of online casino operators, eager to get these humorous new games out to their players. At that time, the brand’s digital slots portfolio consisted of 38 games. Now, there are more than 65 in the suite, prefacing the design team’s dedication to expedience and consistency in production. Receiving dual nominations in a major award ceremony’s Top 20 category is evidence that quality was not abandoned in achieving those goals.

Each year, the AskGambler’s Awards includes a special category in which players vote to reveal the Top 20 online casino games of the year. Let’s think about that for a moment…

Somewhere around 100 studios are competing in this category, each having created a multitude of new slots in 2019. They include the biggest names in the business – Microgaming, NetEnt, Playtech, Yggdrasil, Play’n GO, and so many more. There are well over 500 online casinos games eligible for this category. Suffice it to say, having just one title nominated for the AG Top 20 is a very big deal. But two of them – by a brand new creator? That’s beyond phenomenal!

Fugaso’s Egyptian Themes Attracting the Most Notice

Of all the themes Fugaso has infused their games with, it is their Egyptian titles that players seem to be enjoying the most. The two nominated slots by Fugaso are Imhotep Manuscript (June 2019), and Cleopatra’s Diary (September 2019).

Imhotep Manuscript honors not the rulers of Ancient Egypt, but the chief architect of Pharaoh Djoser’s step-pyramid (3rd Dynasty, circa 2650 B.C.). Unlike most Fugaso online slots, this one is not comical in nature. It is a 7-reel game that draws its popularity from an eternally wild central reel and 3x multipliers in the base game, doubling to 6x during free spins.

Cleopatra’s Diary is on of Fugaso’s comedic gems, built around cartoon-style characters with a boy-saves-girl plot. When the princess, diary and mummy all show up on the 6×3 reels in one spin, re-spins take place. During re-spins, all mummies go after the princess, trying to blow her off the reels. The prince comes to her rescue by attempting to freeze all the mummies. If he succeeds, free spins are awarded.

“We are absolutely delighted to be nominated in AskGambler’s Top 20 with two games, Imhotep Manuscript and Cleopatra’s Diary, from more than 500+ video slot games,” extolled Fugaso Head of Business Development, Robert Metzger.

Knowing that the odds of both games winning are infinitesimal, Metzger said Fugaso is putting its chips behind their latest creation. “We’re backing newly released Cleopatra’s Diary to go all the way, following its amazing results worldwide since launch,” he said. “Cleopatra’s Diary looks fantastic, plays smoothly, and has plenty to please players and operators with.”
