Online casino game developer BetGames and popular African gaming operator Betway have collaborated on a unique project that’ll make Betway users and guests feel like they are playing the game in their backyard.

This collaboration sees the popular title, Skyward developed by BetGames, get given a local makeover. Skyward will receive a wholly unique Betway-inspired design with the operator’s branding being featured front and centre.

This collaborative work will do more than simply give Skyward a new coat of paint. It will help introduce a relatively new genre of casino games to a whole new audience. Thanks to Skyward’s tech optimisation, the game is light on data consumption and will allow players that are in still developing areas to be able to enjoy this game without worrying about the cost to their data bundles.

What Are Crash Games?

For those who are new to the Crash genre of games, here’s a brief explanation. Crash games take place in rounds. Each player gets a chance to load their desired bet as well as customise various auto-bet features to make it fit your exact need. When the round starts, a multiplier will be introduced and will continue until it randomly stops or “crashes”. Before that happens, players will be able to cash out at any time but the longer the round progresses, the higher the potential win. You’ll be able to set your desired multiplier in the auto-bet section so that you’ll automatically be cashed out should that multiplier be reached. These games are often likened to the stock market or crypto market due to the nature in which they operate. A good example of this type of game is Spaceman by developer Pragmatic Play.

What Are BetGames Feelings?

BetGames Africa Sales Vice-President, James Everett, had this to say about the collaboration: “The launch of Skyward has heralded a further exciting step in the evolution of our content portfolio,” he continued “Using it as the base for our latest bespoke project for Betway has really strengthened the fantastic relationship we enjoy with one of the industry’s biggest names.”

He further exclaimed: “Our continued dedication to meeting the needs of local players and understanding our markets has seen us grow our partnership with Betway and we’re proud that it continues to choose us to provide the best, tailored experiences for its players.”

“We’ve engaged BetGames to develop a number of bespoke projects for us and, again, we’re delighted with the results,” the Casino and Verticals Product Manager for Betway Africa, Hailee Cook, said. “Having the latest games presented with our familiar environment and feel is important to our loyal players and Skyward hits that mark again.

“We strive to bring our customers the finest and most innovative gaming content and our alliance with BetGames continues to deliver that.”

We look forward to seeing more potential unions between developers and operators for even more unique experiences.
