As a leading iGaming software provider, 1X2 Network is committed to simplifying the complex world of game development, here’s ten of the most common terms in iGaming, demystified…
RTP (Return To Player)
RTP is a percentage value that represents the average amount of money a player can expect to win back from a casino game over time. For example, an RTP of 95 means that, on average, a player can expect to win back $95 for every $100 wagered. The UKGC has a fantastic explanation of RTP calculation found here. Maverick, a Crash Game from our studio AD LUNAM, boasts a whopping seven different RTP variants to accommodate a range of jurisdictions worldwide, and making it one of the most widely available arcade games in regulated markets.
Megaways is a massively popular game mechanic, originally developed by Big Time Gaming that features dynamic reels with changing symbol sizes on each spin, resulting in thousands of ways to win – a truly mega 117,649 to be precise. Megaways games like Iron Dog Studio’s Megaways Jack and The Magic Beans are known for their high volatility and thrilling gameplay.
Hold and Win
Hold and Win is a popular feature in many slot games, usually found in bonus rounds where players can lock certain symbols on the reels for a chance to trigger bonus rounds or win additional prizes. Hold and Win can provide some massive wins, and is a refreshing alternative to basic Freespins rounds found on almost any slot game. Iron Dog Studio’s now iconic Strike Series has been a staple of 1X2 Network’s portfolio since Wolf Strike released in 2022. The series continues to produce player favourite games, and the upcoming Savannah Strike is sure to be a hit.
Originally finding popularity on Crypto sites, Crash Games are a relatively new format of casino game where players bet on a multiplier that increases over time. The multiplier continues to rise until it crashes, and players must cash out their bets before the crash to win their respective payouts.
