Big Time Gaming (BTG) remain a relatively small-scale games developer, but having been set up in 2011, they have quickly established a strong track record when it comes to the quality of their games.
This can partly be put down to the influence of their CEO, Nik Robinson, CTO Huw McIntosh and Creative Director Ian Schmidt. Robinson had previously worked for NT Media, earning over 20 years experience in the gaming sector, while McIntosh had worked at Openbet for over a decade and Schmidt previously contributed to Rock Star games. Established in Australia, the company has expanded to become a major award-winning player in the modern online casino sector.
BTG is known for the charming graphical presentation of their games, many of which are presented in a cartoon style, which is increasingly popular in the modern casino sector.
The company also produces user-friendly games that are capable of appealing to a wide variety of players, many offering a starting stake of as little as 0.01 coin per spin, although there are plenty of opportunities for big wins as many of the games produced by BTG also incorporate significant bonuses, in some cases worth up to 10,000 coins.
As well as slots games, BTG has also developed a strong collection of virtual table games, focusing on the most popular games of roulette and blackjack. These games are notable for utilising extremely strong graphics and player-friendly features. Alongside these casino classics, the company has also produced a number of lottery games for various jurisdictions, and a small selection of scratch cards, some of which have huge jackpots attached.
BTG games are available across many other countries and in a range of languages, including Japanese, Russian and French. In addition to regularly making new releases, they have been known to collaborate with other online casino companies including Openbet, MGS and GT.
Security and Licensing
Security and reliability are both big issues in the online casino world and BTG are in a strong position to provide reassurance to players of their games.
The company holds several licenses from some of the leading gambling jurisdictions around the world. These include licences held from the UK Gambling Commission, Alderney Gambling Control Commission, the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority as well as a license to supply games in British Columbia, Canada. All of these jurisdictions are known for their strict rules and regulations on the provision of gaming software, including in the areas of fair gaming and player safety. In addition, all BTG games are regularly audited by independent bodies.
Problem gambling is another big concern and BTG have underlined their responsibility credentials through membership of the Responsible Gambling Trust. Many of their games and their partner casinos feature software that informs players how long they have been playing for and how much they have wagered, as well as offering ways to self-exclude and links to problem gambling help resources.
BTG have won several awards, but perhaps their most remarkable achievement came in 2017. Back then, they were secured the top two spots in the Best iGaming Software Experience category, awarded by industry publication Casinomeister.com, despite only having three games entered into the awards, many fewer than their rivals. This particular award is from a player-oriented site, rather than being an industry-only affair, underlining how popular BTG games are with players.
BTG offers their games to around a dozen casino and betting sites around the world, including many household names such as William Hill, Sky Vegas, Leo Vegas, Mecca and Amaya.
Perhaps their most famous partnership is with PokerStars Casino. This casino is one of the largest online brands around, offering a variety of slots and live casino gaming, and BTG have established themselves as the leading slots gaming supplier to the site.
All of the BGT games have a following, but two in particular illustrate their qualities. Temple Quest and Viking Quest were widely praised when they were released, and represented a new level of excellence for the developer. Both games incorporate innovative BTG ideas including Mega Icons, which help players creating winning combinations more easily.
The two games also feature unique new bonuses including the popular Treasure Temple and Chest of Fortune feature bonuses that can be found in Temple Quest, and the Gone Fishing Bonus that rewards players in Viking Quest. Along with the charming graphics to be found in both games, there is also the possibility of some surprisingly big payouts, with some bonuses offering prizes of up to 10,000 coins, another attribute that BTG are known for.
