Lift the curtains of Skywind game creation

Share a brief history of your company and the most prominent achievements.
Skywind was founded in 2012 by a group of highly respected industry professionals, experienced in producing premium content and innovative iGaming solutions.
Since then, we have grown its portfolio to include video slots, live casino games and unique player engagement tools. Earlier this year, Skywind Holdings also acquired Intouch Games, further strengthening our position in the UK market. We also gained access to Slot Factory’s library of content, which will soon be available through our Skywind integration.
Now we are living with 700+ brands in Europe, including the most known and popular sites amongst players.
Over the last year, we have been very active in the regulated market space, growing our presence in existing markets, but also entering the Netherlands, Colombia, Portugal, Ontario, and Switzerland, with Lithuania, Serbia and Bulgaria closely following in the coming months. We are also expanding in LatAm, Africa and other .com countries.
By enriching our slots portfolio with a plethora of engagement tools like Lucky Envelopes, Tournaments and Must Win Jackpots solutions, operators are allowed to acquire and retain players, from whom the response has been hugely positive.
Our live dealer studios have been another great achievement as well as our solutions/content being certified in so many regulated markets. Our next big milestone will be the release of our first Game Show.
Furthermore, as Skywind360, we also started working with established gaming companies with market presence to create tailored products to elevate their businesses to the next level. We live our motto “Powering Our Partnerships”.
The group is incredibly proud of the team that allows us to achieve all these incredible milestones. That support and sharing of common goals have allowed Skywind to become what it is today.
Do you have a game you are particularly proud to have developed? Why?
Of the games released in the last year, 8 Tigers Megaways™ has been a standout for us in terms of its performance in the market, new features and overall package quality. The launch of our second game with the Play it your way™ feature was also well received – giving players the flexibility to gamble their winnings at different points of the game. We have also tailored games for different audiences, with a themed Megaways™ game being another success.
How long does it take to develop one game?
It depends on the complexity but for premium games with new math models and new art, it can take around 9 months from the start of the build to the end.
