A Look At Quickspin: “We Love Slots!”

They might be one of the newer video slot design studios on the block, but don’t let their fresh faces and quirky sense of humour fool you; the brains behind Quickspin are industry veterans seriously shaking up the online wagering software game.

Founded in 2011, Quickspin are a clearly passionate team of slot enthusiasts, specialising in innovative gameplay and high quality user interfaces. Solely focused on producing video slot machine titles for the free to play, social and online gaming market, this approach has allowed them to develop real cash games that stand out in a crowded marketplace. In turn, they’ve quickly made inroads into a highly competitive igaming industry.

Combining Gaming Experts

Based in Sweden and Malta, Quickspin was created by a trio of bright young industry stars, all of whom had already sunk their teeth into some of the biggest online gaming firms. CEO Daniel Lindberg spent five years as Director of Sales and Head of Product Management at the hugely influential Swedish company Net Entertainment and clearly took his customer-focused insight to new heights when founding Quickspin.

Fellow co-founders and vice presidents, Mats Westerlund and Joachim Timmermans have equally distinguished CVs: Westerlund used to head up design at NetEnt and Timmermans has worked with the universally respected Unibet casino group. So when these gamer-oriented, design-led professionals got together, the outcome was bound to be a breath of fresh air.

Founded with a very simple philosophy of “We love slots!” the Quickspin software studio has forged ahead fast. By putting gamers first and centering their efforts on ‘gamification’ from the get-go, Quickspin has consequently emerged as one of the leading real-money content providers in the industry. The studio’s strengths didn’t go unnoticed by Playtech, who acquired the business in May 2016.

Now a 60-strong team who each bring their own unique professional experience to the Quickspin table, the firm is proof that thinking outside the box is a path to success.

Main Strengths

It goes without saying that Quickspin scores highly when it comes to innovative thematic design and unique slot machine features. The love these guys have for their craft is evident from the super-playful spirit of imagination they bring to their products.

User access is also a key consideration for them as every slot game they’ve produced so far can be played in-browser with no download hassles, allowing you to get in on the action instantly. Trust is also a big concern for Quickspin and casinos that offer their titles through Microgaming’s Quickfire instant play system are reliable.

Ever seeking a fresh approach to online slot gaming, Quickspin has recently developed a new Achievements Engine, which allows players to engage with slot games more than ever before by letting them complete level achievements – in a similar manner to social games. On paper, it’s a simple tool, but one that seems hugely effective as most players report that they love the feeling of fulfilment that ticking off levels gives them.


The first slot game to feature the Achievements Engine is Quickspin’s Sakura Fortune. This narrative-driven, 40-payline slot follows the journey of a beautiful heroine through an enchanted world of cherry trees and golden dragons, as she battles evil emperors en route to riches. Gorgeously rendered, this 4×5 reel slot follows on from Leprechaun Hills, which is already a hit with players, and other blockbuster games such as Hot Sync, Phoenix Sun, and Dragon Shrine.

Sticky Bandits is another recent release from the Quickspin team, plunging gamers into the cacti-strewn canyons of the Wild West. It’s a fast-paced rollercoaster ride featuring dodgy desperadoes, dynamite, and a killer spaghetti western soundtrack. The 5×5 slot features two wild symbols, labelled Sheriff and Bandit, and over the course of the game, these symbols change positions, shifting across the reels as if they were engaged in a cat and mouse pursuit all of their own.

Sticky Bandits comes with the signature Quickspin touch of inventive gameplay; land the two wilds on the same spin to activate free spins, complete with expanding wilds. Here the animations kick up a notch, with a sequence that sees the sheriff and bandit go head to head and bullet for bullet.

Wins of Fortune is a Quickspin game that features way more than a good pun, and takes video slot aficionados to a picturesque valley in the heart of Asia, where players can march into battle with mythical characters of old quest stories to win big.

The 3,3,4,4,5 reel slot boasts re-spins on any win, and features a Super Re-Spin mode where the game re-spins until there are no additional winning symbols on the grid.


Passionate about their product and currently kicking out some of the most unique slot games on the market, we’d say Quickspin is in a league of its own when it comes to innovative gameplay features. While their output might be smaller than other firms, we’d take quality over quantity any day, as Quickspin’s portfolio is steadily growing without compromising on the thrills and spills their gamers expect.

Combining their experiences at major gaming firms such as NetEnt and Unibet, Quickspin have confidently channeled their knowledge toward the customer, providing engaging slot games to play that boast superb graphics and supremely clever game design features.

In sum, we think it’s a winning formula, and as co-founder Joachim Timmermans, says: “Players are not short of choice out there, but the cream will always rise to the top”.
