About Red Tiger Gaming
Founded in 2014, Red Tiger Gaming is a development studio based in Malta, with additional offices in Bulgaria and the Isle of Man. The studio joined the NetEnt family in 2019, and was acquired by Evolution together with its parent company in December 2020. However, Red Tiger retains a strong brand identity with an established presence in both the European and Asian markets.

The studio focuses on creating high-calibre, mobile-first slot games and has been recognised for the quality and innovation of its products with plenty of EGR B2B awards over the past few years.
In addition to casino games, Red Tiger offers operators a user-friendly back-office solution and a comprehensive suite of engagement tools, including access to the innovative Daily Drop Jackpot Network.
Red Tiger Gaming is licensed and regulated by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, the Malta Gambling Authority, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, and the HM Government of Gibraltar.
Smart solutions for player engagement
Red Tiger Gaming provides its partners with a fully flexible suite of tools, which makes it possible to engage players dynamically through offers fit for their gaming experience and lifecycle position. Included in the suite are the Smart Spins bonus platform, a tournament function, and various jackpot options.
Smart Spins, aimed at delivering incentives and rewards to players, is the core tool. These incentives include unlimited free spins for a specific period of time and guaranteed bonus rounds within a given number of spins. The platform also offers cross-selling bonuses to promote tables to slot players and vice versa. A rundown of the requirements players need to satisfy to get a reward— and a progress bar showing how close they are — further incentivize play.
Tournaments boost engagement by appealing to players’ competitive nature. They are fully customizable in terms of rules and rewards, and can be offered with all first-party titles.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of Red Tiger Gaming's engagement tool suite is the range of jackpot options offered. Jackpots are fully customizable and can be set up for any first-party game or group of games, both locally and across Red Tiger’s network, according to each operator’s needs.
Jackpot panels can be personalised with the operator's branding and are designed to engage players with visual cues when the odds are particularly attractive.
Operators can set up classic progressives, ceiling jackpots (guaranteed to pay out before a set amount is reached), and daily drop jackpots. These are a first in the industry: progressive jackpots that pay out daily before a set time and are made available across the entire network of Red Tiger Gaming's customers. Thanks to this solution, smaller operators can offer massive jackpots to their players. Hourly pots based on the same principle are also available.

The back-office client used to control the engagement suite is sleek, intuitive, and — most importantly — secure.
Casino operators can use it to set up marketing campaigns and deliver them via in-game messaging. All first-party titles are compatible.
Campaigns can be automated, cloned, and analysed with ease; the analytics tools included provide both big-picture reports and granular insights.
The service is hosted directly on Red Tiger Gaming's servers; the studio offers 24/7 support to operators.
Gaming for the masses
While the developer offers some table games (namely Blackjack, Baccarat, and European Roulette), Red Tiger Gaming primarily focuses on developing slots.
All games are based on the company’s proprietary RTG Core engine and written in HTML5, which means they run smoothly on any device, including smartphones and tablets.
By using this architecture, Red Tiger aims to make its titles scalable and compatible with older devices and operative systems to ensure the broadest possible player base to providers.
Adding to this, it's worth mentioning that Red Tiger Gaming localises its titles in over 30 languages, making it possible to reach a truly global audience with their products.
The studio is not afraid to license intellectual properties and mechanics from other developers, so it's possible to find slots employing NetEnt's INFINIREELS™ or Big Time Gaming's Megaways™ in its catalogue. Red Tiger is also happy to develop its own original functionalities, like Power Reels. The slots with this mechanic present a massive grid of up to 10 reels and offer win multipliers up to 10,000x.
Red Tiger has developed sequels to other studios' franchises and is starting to produce collaborations with big names outside the iGaming industry. One example is Trillionaire, a video slot created together with fashion and lifestyle broadcaster FashionTV, with a February 2021 release date.
Our favourite slots by Red Tiger Gaming
Here's a rundown of the Slotegrator team’s favourite slots developed by Red Tiger Gaming. It’s just a small selection, but it will give you an idea of how Red Tiger can contribute to your online casino’s catalogue.
Dragon's Luck Power Reels
A re-edition of the classic slot Dragon's Luck is one of Red Tiger Gaming’s signature titles. This 2018 hit features the Power Reels mechanic which quadruples the grid's size. With its massive 10x6 reel set and wins of up to 3,888 times the stake, Dragon's Luck Power Reels manages to entertain players without scatters, wilds, or a free spins function — a testament to the quality of the game. Wins pay adjacent for groups of three or more along the 30 paylines, and different groups can pay along the same payline. There is a stacked mystery symbol mechanic, the Dragon Coin, to create a sense of anticipation in the players, and mega coins that guarantee big wins.
One of the most recent additions to Red Tiger Gaming's catalogue, Thor's Vengeance is a sequel to the 2019 release Thor's Lightning. The game brings back the original's signature mechanics: the eponymous Thor's Lightning, which removes all low-paying symbols; Thor's Hammer, which adds 2x2 wilds or nudges reels for guaranteed wins; and cascading symbols that disappear after a win. Red Tiger made a good game great with updated graphics to capture players' imaginations, growing multipliers within the free spins mode, and a stunning 2,304 ways to win.
Golden Lotus continues to appeal to players with its straightforward gameplay. The clean and polished game art works in tandem with a beautiful soundtrack to perfectly capture the slot’s Macanese vibe. The main feature of the game is its locked wilds. The golden lotus symbols after which the slot is named behave differently according to the mode they appear in, remaining on the reels for a couple of spins within the main game but lingering in place for the entire bonus round when in free spins mode.
Pirates' Plenty: Battle for Gold
Battle for Gold is the second release in the beloved Pirate's Plenty series. Taking the player for a journey through the Caribbean, this slot features a collection mechanic without making it the only focus of gameplay: by landing map symbols, players get to unlock an extra row to expand the reel set. The slot also comes with a special wild that replaces low-paying symbols, a themed free spins feature, and multiplier wilds. Pirate's Plenty: Battle for Gold may not be ground-breaking, but it's one of those all-round solid slots with a fantastic theme that players end up sticking with for years after its release.
Cirque de la Fortune
Cirque de la Fortune sports stunning graphics and a wide range of functions. The base game has a simple 6x4 reel set with 30 paylines; the wheel in the upper part of the screen, however, activates a free spins mode multiplier for wins up to 3,333x the stake, and four other exciting mechanics: Wildfire Reels, Juggling Wilds, Magic Expand, and Disappearing Symbols. Wildfire Reels turns an entire reel into wilds; Juggling Wilds randomly adds wilds to the spin results; Magic Expand makes a random symbol take over every reel it appears on and triggers wins along the paylines even when symbols are not adjacent. Finally, Disappearing Symbols remove all low-paying symbols and replace them with high-paying ones. This exhilarating combination of functions keeps the surprises coming and guarantees players' continued engagement.
