UK – Japanese slot developer Ganapati to make ICE debutBy Phil - 23 January 2017
Ganapati Malta, an online slots developer from Japan, will be serving up all things Japanese, from sushi to sake, ice-cold beer to DJs, during the three-day exhibition.
The firm, which specialises in producing top-quality Japanese-themed slots, will be showcasing its initial portfolio of games, including brand new titles CrypBattle and She Ninja Suzu.
The games will appear on videos played on giant screens hanging above the stand, alongside information about the company. In addition, nine Ganapati representatives will be on the stand and roam the hall dressed as characters from the games.
In order to make the most of its show debut, Ganapati is also sponsoring the Red Room at London Baby.
Ganapati is one of the youngest suppliers in the market having launching in September last year, but is backed by industry veterans from Asian and European iGaming.
Their mission is to celebrate Japanese culture through their slots games, which are designed around manga and anime and use Japanese technology and enticing math.
Each of its games has been developed in HTML5 and is available for desktop and mobile platforms, iOS and Android.
Richard Hogg, director at Ganapati Malta, said: “We are thrilled to be exhibiting at ICE for the first time, and have gone all-out with our stand. Japanese culture is on trend right now, and we can’t wait to welcome delegates to our stand for sushi, sake, and to spin the reels.
“Our initial games will be on show, giving delegates chance to see what a powerful combination Japanese design and technology make. Our games are unique in style and gameplay, and offer our partners a point of difference over their rivals.
“The ethos at Ganapati is very much about entertainment and fun, so make sure to drop by our stand during the show, enjoy a beer or two, and chat with the friendly members of our team. It’s going to be a frantic few days, so don’t miss out.”
Ganapati Malta is part of the Ganapati Group, which has been developing Japanese-themed entertainment and gaming apps for a number of years. It has offices in Tokyo, Los Angeles, London, Malta and Tallinn.
Mr. Hogg added:“We are working with the best studios, both internally and externally, to create innovative content that merges Japanese culture and online gambling. Our aim is to become the world’s pre-eminent distributor of this new kind of gambling content. The strategy is to develop new games and in the process, develop a whole new entertainment world.”
“We will shortly have licences in both the UK and Malta and are currently putting together a comprehensive range of games, so it’s a great time to start talking to potential partners. Fundamentally, ICE is the world’s number one gaming exhibition and attracts visitors from across the globe. As such, there’s no better place to launch and we are approaching what is an important three days with activity, energy and bundles of enthusiasm. It’s going to be a great week and one which I am certain we will look back on as a pivotal moment in our develop
