Royal Panda’s Melvin Ritsema on Slots and Big Time Gaming

In today’s edition of casino news, we’ll take a look at one of the recent interviews with Melvin Ritsema. Ritsema works as a CMO at Royal Panda which is one the most popular casino operators. Last month, Ritsema sat down with the CasinoBeats team to discuss his views on slot games.

One of the first things Melvin emphasised about the current slot environment is that today, we see a high number of slots on the market every month. Due to the ever-increasing number of slot games, it’s no longer possible to release several titles and dominate the slots market. Game developers are constantly speeding up the pace, so to keep up with them, in Ritsema’s point of view, game providers need to either work on releasing a high number of games or focus on creating unique slots.

In the current slot market that can be quite a challenge. The market is saturated. Standing out with a new game is something the biggest names in the industry fail to do. Ritsema believes that a game can easily be a success among players if it is related to a TV show or a big brand. He also pointed out that Big Time Gaming is one of the content providers that deliver something new with their slots.

As Ritsema explained, BTG game portfolio is not that extensive. However, the gaming content that comes out of this game development studio has unique features. BTG games have increasing paylines, and players can buy bonus rounds. These are some of the many innovative features the gaming provider offers. Ritsema believes BTG is doing their job exceptionally well.

Lastly, Royal Panda’s CMO looks forward to seeing what the industry will take away from BTG’s game mechanics. Ritsema also said that he wants to see if BTG can continue delivering unique games and features in the future.

Casino fans are currently waiting for the latest BTG title to come out – Who Wants to be a Millionaire? While reviewing new slots in the first half of September 2018, we talked about this game from BTG. The game still hasn’t been released, but the launch date, i.e., November 18th, is quickly approaching. We look forward to seeing Who Wants to be a Millionaire? across leading UK casino sites.
