iSoftBet is London based iGaming company has a lot of branded titles; and a lot of licenses from regulated jurisdictions around the world. Their history is unclear, with the Alderney license listing them as ISB, and news releases going back to 2010.
What we do know is that iSoftbet produces a lot of games - up to 400 at the latest count covering online slot games, social casino and more. Their games are mostly 5-reel video slots, and include some popular branded titles based on TV series (24, Beverly Hills 90210) and films (Rambo, Platoon).
The games I played varied in quality, though the more recent releases are up there with the best of the better known software houses. In addition to the many branded games, there are the more standard slot themes to enjoy. These include the obligatory Irish luck game, gems themed slots and one based on dolphins.
Innovations from iSoftbet
While most of the games are 5 reel video slot games, the innovations come in the 3-reel games. There are titles which have 3 reels for the regular (old style) slots symbols, and then 2 more optional reels which can enhance your wins. An example of this type of game is Ultimate Super Reels. The 4th reel has a number of extra coins (up to 1000) which can be added to wins, while the 5th reel has a multiplier. To play these extra reels you need to add extra coins. 1 to 9 coins will get you the 3 reels, 10 adds the fourth reel and the last one requires 15 coins.
Some of the newer online slots games from iSoftbet use the all-ways 243 ways to win technology. This means that any combination of 3+ symbols starting in the left hand reel will create a win. This is not new (Aristocrat, IGT and others already use it), however it does stop those annoying moments when you think you hit 5 of a kind only to find you somehow missed a win-line.
Hallmarks of iSoftbet slots
The games are varied enough that there is nothing to single out as a tell-tale sign you are playing an iSoftbet title. Some of the slot machine games have very similar win amounts for the different slots symbols. Bigger wins come via the bonuses, wilds or certain combinations (often 5 wilds) which trigger an outsized win.
TV and movie themes are ubiquitous in their range. There are many that are based on more obscure titles that you might not have expected to become an online slot. Love Guru (a comedy by Mike Myers) is an excellent example – and a very enjoyable slot.
Better yet, they have shown a commitment to turning their best of the best into mobile and tablet slots, ensuring their biggest names are available to play where ever you go. This is no surprise from a casino slots software provider who put such strict rules on themselves, ensuring their games are licensed with not one, but four regulatory bodies, including Spain, Italy, Belgium and Alderney.
