Hi, Matt! Thank you for taking the time to chat with us and discuss Gameburger’s products. Before we begin, could you introduce yourself and Gameburger Studios to our readers?
“I’m Matt Carvajal, Creative Design Lead at Gameburger Studios. We have a talented and passionate team that creates and innovates exciting and immersive content for a wide variety of markets and players. Our main focus is to make sure our players enjoy their gaming experience, with the potential to get rewarded with big wins.”
Here at Slotswise, we’re very excited about your latest release: Fishin’ Pots of Gold™. What can players expect from this slot?
“In short, there’s a fun and a potentially fortune-filled trip to the end of the rainbow to go fishin’ for cash and pot-of-gold jackpots with Lucky Lad Flynn.
Flynn’s not your average Irish fisherman; whenever he lands anywhere in base or free spins, Flynn reels in all cash prizes on the reels. If special ‘Pot of Gold’ jackpot symbols up to 5000 times bet appear, Flynn reels them in too!
In free spins, Flynn goes after some epic big catches! Cash symbol prizes are bigger and up to 5 Flynn symbols can land, each one collecting all cash and jackpots. Every 3 Flynn symbols accumulated to the trail above the reels awards 5 more free spins and increases Flynn’s cash prize multiplier up to 10x.
We’re also really excited to introduce Gameburger Studios’ first feature buy on Fishin’ Pots of Gold™. When unlocked, it allows players to accelerate their bonus feature and reel in those free spin big wins whenever they want.”
A key feature of Gameburger slots is the HyperSpins™ we’ve seen in titles like 9 Masks of Fire™ HyperSpins™. Where does the inspiration for creating such unique features come from?
“By incorporating innovative value-add-ons for our players like the Hyperspins™ feature, we’ve given them the ability to strategically play the game’s features. We want a slot experience that appeals to all player types and is always seeking inspiration for ways to cater for the various thrill-seekers.”
Apart from HyperSpins™, what other features or innovations are you most proud of?
“We have seen a big response from our ‘instant cash prize’ style games. The rules for the games are extremely intuitive, and triggering a win is visually exciting as well as providing an instant win. We’ve continued to expand these types of games with our latest game, Fishin’ Pots of Gold™, with a scatter collect symbol that can reel in multiple cash prizes at once.”
Do you plan to release titles with themes that break away from the classic US-style, like sci-fi or mythology for example?
“We’re always keeping an eye on things that are popular in the market, so we will adapt as we see trends emerging.”
What would you say is the most important aspect of a successful game?
“Player immersion. It’s a big challenge to capture all the elements that are in a regular casino and showcase them on a phone or device. We carefully work with these game elements to bring an authentic casino-like experience.”
If you could choose a game or feature from another studio, which one would be your favourite and why?
“Our Break Da Bank Again™ MEGAWAYS™ was a really popular release, and we really liked the way Triple Edge Studios approached the feature in Ancient Fortunes Poseidon MEGAWAYS™ so perhaps something along those lines.”
What can we expect from Gameburger Studios in 2022?
“We haven’t got a proper classic 777’s-feature game and really wanted to include it in our modern portfolio. The main feature in 777Surge ™ is a mini 3-reel game within each reel, so games within a game, with ascending top prizes.”
Thank you Matt for taking the hot seat in our interview series and sharing some exclusive details with us! We look forward to seeing new Gameburger slots with exciting features and top-notch designs!
