BGaming is the new name for the in-house pokies and casino game development arm of SoftSwiss, which underwent a major re-branding in 2017.
BGaming pokies are especially notable for being the first to integrate blockchain technology into online slots. This means BGaming slots and casino games can be played in online casinos using traditional payment methods, as well as at the growing number of gaming sites that now that accept cryptocurrencies, particularly Bitcoin.
A major selling point of BGaming blockchain pokies is that they have Provable Fairness. In essence, this a feature that enables the individual player to use cryptography to check a game’s RNG and how random any particular spin has been. This idea of accountability is a cornerstone of all blockchain technology and has great appeal for the new generation of players.
SoftSwiss, the parent company of BGaming, is a casino management platform that acts as an intermediary between pokies developers and casino operators. It supplies game infrastructure and ensures their ongoing fair and secure operation. This leaves the casino to focus on what it does best, namely enhancing the player experience. SoftSwiss is based in Curacao and Belarus, and its pokies are licensed by all of the major online gaming jurisdictions.
Many leading game developers operate in partnership with SoftSwiss to distribute their games to the best online casinos. Along with BGaming pokies, SoftSwiss also distributes slots and casino games by NetEnt, Microgaming, Amatic Industries, Play’n Go, BetSoft, Yggdrasil, Ainsworth, iSoftBet, NYX, ELK Studios, Thunderkick, Belatra, Pragmatic Play, Evolution Gaming, EGT, Endorphina, Ezugi, Booming Games, Habanero, GameArt, Mr Slotty, Spinomenal, Platipus Gaming, 1×2 Gaming and Iron Dog.
There are currently no online casinos where you can play BGaming pokies exclusively, but you will find its games alongside those of other developers at casinos such as Bitstarz, Playamo and King Billy Casino.
It’s not only its use of blockchain technology, the Provably Fair feature, and its position as a cryptocurrency game provider that puts BGaming up there with the best contemporary slots developers.
Multi-channel accessibility is another hallmark of BGaming pokies, and they have focussed on becoming a leading mobile pokies provider. Using entirely HTML5 technology, BGaming slots can be played on any device without the need to download and install casino software or a dedicated app. Instead, its pokies can be played directly in the browser of your desktop, laptop, mobile or tablet, with its mobile pokies games being optimised so that they look especially good on the smaller screens of smartphones. This portability and accessibility has been a big part of their success this far.
BGaming pokies can also be adapted for play via social casinos apps on Facebook and other platforms through the use of an API.
The number of BGaming online HD pokies is growing all the time. The current portfolio of around 50 slots gives you great variety, and its pokies have a diverse range of themes to cover all playing tastes.
One of the best-known and most successful BGaming pokies is Platinum Lightning. This 2018 slot has a Greek mythology theme, is optimised for play on mobile phones, and can be played at both Bitcoin casinos and those accepting more traditional payment methods.
It’s a 5 reel 25 payline pokie with wild and scatter symbols, stacked reels, and a free spins bonus round. It also features outstanding artwork and design, which is a feature of all BGaming slots. The game has proven so popular that BGaming has now released Platinum Lightning Deluxe, an upgraded version that has the same characters and theme, but the design of the reels and symbols has been re-imagined. Platinum Lightning Deluxe also features bigger and better dynamic animations.
Other pokies in the BGaming portfolio that are probably familiar to New Zealand pokies players include Aztec Magic (and Aztec Magic Deluxe), Brave Viking, West Town, Slotomon Go, Domnitors, Book of Pyramids, Lucky Lady’s Clover, Scroll of Adventure and Desert Treasure.
Although BGaming is predominantly known for its first rate slots games, it has also developed an impressive collection of table games as well. These are presented in high quality HD and offer an excellent player experience.
BGaming produces classic casino table games, with several varieties of blackjack (including multi-hand, surrender, double exposure, and pontoon), along with American, European and French roulette, as well as baccarat.

The games currently available include Caribbean poker, casino hold’em, Let it Ride, oasis poker, Texas hold’em, trey poker and Hi-Lo Switch. You can also play BGaming JOB and Wild Texas video poker, and the clear and contemporary design of these games redefines how video poker games look.
As befitting a games developer that is always looking to push the envelope, BGaming has also developed some other more straightforward and easy-to-play games that nevertheless have stunning visual qualities that lift them beyond the everyday. These include Minesweeper, Scratch Dice (a scratch card game), and Heads and Tails (a simple coin toss game).
