David has been in the niche long enough, holding management roles in different companies, to develop own vision and feeling for the online casino games and how they should look and feel like. Swintt has a team of experts behind the company name, and the company is in fact a part of the larger corporation. Glitnor Group corporation owns and runs many gaming sites, so Swintt has additional opportunities opening due to that fact.
As of today, Swintt has over 70 employees and partners all over the world. This is a rapidly growing company that makes table games, online slot machines, and also Live Dealer games. At the time of writing this review, Swintt has over 100 slot games, in addition to their rich portfolio in other games categories.

One of the strengths of Swintt that make this casino games developer so successful is taking localised games which are popular in certain markets already, and creating a whole new experience for the players within those already popular and in-demand games. Local data and knowledge allow the company to reach the hearts and minds of players in particular markets, instead of making generalized assumptions about what casino players want.

Q/A Session With Tanya Axisa, Head of Account Management at Swintt
Hello Tanya! Happy to talk to you within our Q&A session. What is your assessment of the iGaming niche development in 2021? What trends do you think we should expect in future?
We see many trends coming to the market, especially new and exciting features. The Expanding ways feature is a huge hit and we tried to enhance this mechanic by showing how many ways will be revealed on the next spin in our hit Lone Rider XtraWays. We also increased the number of max ways to 262,144 and, which is the highest number of ways in the industry. We are very excited about up-coming and long-awaited game release Rock n’ Ways XtraWays, where we used the XtraWays mechanic and increased the max payout to 25,000 x your bet.
By the end of 2020, Swintt released a new product called SwinttLive. It is Live Dealer games optimized for mobile online gambling. Are you happy with the popularity of SwinttLive so far? What can we expect from this product in the future? Will you add more games to the list?
SwinttLive has been incredibly well-received by operators and players. This is mostly due to the mobile-first approach we have taken, delivering an engaging and entertaining experience especially when played in portrait mode. This is reflected in the activity we are seeing from players who are recognising the power and quality of the product experience we offer. We are also seeing a great engagement with those that appreciate the Las Vegas casino environment we have created – our games are streamed directly from Sin City.
And yes, absolutely, we are working hard on adding more games to our SwinttLive portfolio. We are super excited about our next run of game releases and especially Blackjack Plus and our new Roulette variant. And there is more to come, so stay tuned.
Swintt is one of the few online casino games providers that makes not only slots but also table games. Are there any particular complications in developing table games for online casinos? I mean, you can’t really add any new unique features, or change the game rules, right?
We believe that to have good quality table games in your portfolio is very important to provide customers with as wide a range of products as possible. With table games, you are right, you can’t be very creative, however, it gives you the chance to fully focus on the best customer experience. And that is what we are doing at Swintt. We take popular table games, and we try to develop them in the best way possible so the players enjoy playing, for example, our Andar Bahar, Perfect Pairs Blackjack and Baccarat No Commissions.
Now let’s talk about slots. What are the key differences and peculiarities that make Swintt slots stand out from the crowd? Are there any unique features, mechanics, or gameplays you can tell our readers more about?
We are very passionate about slots at Swintt. We are releasing at least 4 games per month and I believe that every new release is better than the previous one.
We listen to our customers, players and communities and we are trying to implement every feedback into the next production.
As I already gave a hint, we will be releasing Rock n’ Ways XtraWays, which is our second game in our portfolio with XtraWays mechanic. First time we used it in Lone Rider XtraWays and we received a great feedback with some suggestions for improvement. We listened to them and we are very excited about the Rock n’ Ways XtraWays launch, a game that offers up to 262,177 ways and awards up to 25,000 x bet.
Recently, Swintt has released several interesting games: Lone Rider XtraWays™, Zombies on Vacation and Book Of The East. Can you please tell our readers a bit more about each of the games? How is the games development process organized in Swintt?
Lone Rider XtraWays is our debut with XtraWays mechanics. The game is our take on the popular Wild West theme and one of our biggest slot launches to date. It takes a 6x3 reel format as standard with up to 262,144 ways to win thanks to our highly innovative XtraWays mechanic which debuted with the game.
With XtraWays, players can increase the winning potential by collecting XtraWays icons that drop at random across all reels. The reels then expand and contract depending on the symbols that land. With XtraWays, players can see how large the reels will be on their next spin.
There is a counter at the top of each reel that indicates how many symbols will appear in that reel for the next spin. That number then increases depending on the XtraWays symbols that land, up to a max of eight symbols.
Zombies on Vacation is our Halloween game with 5x3 reel and the option to choose from 5 different Free Spin modes that vary in volatility and multipliers. Action takes place on a tiki-style island backdrop where shrunken heads and grasping hands adorn the reels, while high-value symbols include screaming tourists and four zombie sun-seekers.
Book Of The East is our latest slot release and the first game with Buy Feature. Book Of The East is a book game with the classic book bonus feature, however, we are increasing the excitement by implementing the expanding mystery symbol to the base game, where this feature is triggered by collecting at least 3 keys, which happens very frequently.
Do you have any plans on developing brand slots, for example, in collaboration with celebrities, or using brands of popular series and movies?
We do indeed. At Swintt, sustainability and bringing something back to the communities is very important for us. So to find the right first ambassador for Swintt was key.
We signed a contract with Vinnie Jones, who is a true British icon and globally renowned actor, having been successful in both sports and cinema, and we’re thrilled to be able to produce a suite of content around his image.
His dedication to charity and philanthropic work is inspiring, making him a perfect celebrity for Swintt to work with.
Thank you for taking part in our Q&A session! Eventually, the last question - what Swintt is up to in the near future, say, in 2021? Or maybe you could raise the curtain a bit about plans for 2022? Are there more new titles we can expect from the company?
There is a lot Swintt is up to, and the players have definitely something to be looking forward to. We are currently working on our first branded project with Vinnie Jones, we will be launching our SwinttPlay-It-Back gamification tool and projects I can’t reveal just yet. But definitely, stay tuned!
