Australia has always had a rich history of slot game development. It was arguably started by Aristocrat Gaming many years ago and later followed up by companies like Ainsworth and NextGen Gaming. All of these slot game developers put Maths at the center of anything they produce, along with innovative design and imaginative themes. In 2004 a company called Lightning Box Games entered the slot game market in Australia with clear intentions to build games using these core principles that had been serving their competitors so well.
Many years later Lightning Box Games has grown into a recognizable developer and prides itself on the strong mathematics that powers their slot games and the innovation that goes into them. They have produced slots in almost every variation, including Land-based, online, mobile and social. Despite not having a huge portfolio, some of their titles have proven very popular, such as the Mexican-themed Chilli Gold and the African-inspired Serengeti Diamonds.
It could be argued that many of their slots have similar themes to those of Aristocrat slots, but the slot developer industry is a fairly small world and no doubt engineers and designers have come and gone from both companies being located where they are. One thing is for sure, Lightning Box Games looks set to be around for a while, as they continue to build new imaginative, exciting multi-platform slot games.
