Could Pragmatic Play Make a Name for Itself in the Canadian iGaming scene?

Slot players will have heard of the powerhouses of the industry like Microgaming and Playtech, but there are various other developers which are beginning to challenge these big guns for recognition. One of these is Pragmatic Play, a new developer on the scene which came about in 2015, but one which is making waves already. The company is behind the recently released Wolf Gold slot, which has become popular with Canadian casino players. Thanks to the success of the 2017 offering, Pragmatic Play may be able to get a stronger foothold in the North American market.

Wolf Gold Slot

One of the most notable offerings from Pragmatic Play is Wolf Gold, which comes highly recommended by online casino review sites in Canada. Indeed, it is touted as one of the best games for you to use a real money bonus on. Wolf Gold spins for you vary from site to site, with some sites offering up to 880 no deposit spins to use on the game.

The game features almost lifelike wolves, and it will appeal to anyone who likes nature themes accompanied by the chance to win. The largest member of the canid family is abundant in Canada, with around 60,000 said to be in the country. This is perhaps why Canadians are interested in playing a game about wolves.



Another offering from the developer is Fruit Rainbow, a retro-themed slot which is designed to appeal to nostalgia-seeking players. This simple slot game uses fruit symbols like the original machines in the genre. It has some nifty animations, though, to keep it in sync with modern slots and to attract players who like state of the art games.

Flourishing Gaming Market

Pragmatic Play could have made a good move in targeting the Canadian market as a place to focus its games. Canada is considered to be one of the world’s up-and-coming gaming scenes, with a vast number of well-known developers from every sector of the gaming industry based there. It isn’t just casino developers either. Some of the planet’s most notable mobile and console game studios have come up from Canada in recent years.

Ubisoft is one of the most successful developers out of Canada, and is considered to be the granddaddy of the scene. Its most famous franchise is Assassin’s Creed, but it has also been responsible for the South Park games and Prince of Persia. Another renowned developer is Hinterland Games, and this is a team that might help inspire Pragmatic Play. It only employs 22 people, and is punching way above its bootstrap budget.

With the iGaming sector in Canada on the rise and the country being home to a vast number of successful developers, Pragmatic Play has the right idea in targeting players in the country. Within another five years, the slot developer could end up becoming one of the biggest names in the online casino world.
