About FUGASO: Casino Pioneers Since 2001?
Boasting a start date of 2001, FUGASO (a name made up of the first letters from ‘FUTURE GAMING SOLUTIONS’) has actually been busiest in late 2016 and early 2017. Details have been a little sketchy but it could be the Russian company has been concentrating on back-end solutions for a few years before dipping its toes in the wider world of game development.

Certainly, given that FUGASO has penned deals with some of the biggest casino platforms and affiliates around. It also boasts the tools to provide full casino integrations, from game concepts and interfaces, to white label options.

In late 2016, FUGASO struck a deal with GameScale, who provide software platforms to online casinos. These include the likes of OceanBets, Crazy Casino, and Enzo Casino. However, it also has deals with Casino Partners 365 (Triomphe Casino, Blu Casino, Madame Chance), Wiz Partners (Times Square), and the NetaGame platform (Casino Adrenaline, EatSleepBet), among many others.

2017 has been a busy time for the developer, with the firm releasing five new slots titles to online casinos: Trump It, Fruits of Neon, Double Cash, Lagartha, and the Mafia-themed Cosa Nostra slot. April saw another five games released, all with slick 3D graphics: The Giant, Knockout: The Last Fight, Smoking Dogs, Crazy Bot, and Grand Sumo.

Game Development & White Label
Primarily, FUGASO designs and develops its own online slots games and slots for other major developers. They also offer a white label back end for online casinos seeking out a basic framework on which to hang their games. FUGASO’s back end has been used to support casino games from the likes of NetEnt, Microgaming, NYX, and NOVOMATIC.

FUGASO now creates games supported on platforms like iOS, Android, Windows, and HTML5. In 2017, the firm boasts around a dozen affiliate partners in the online casino industry.

Popular FUGASO Slots & Games
At the moment, FUGASO is concentrating its individual gaming output on slots but presumably a range of table games, instant-win games, and Live Casino platforms are on their way.

Slots

Immediately, you can see that FUGASO is all about the graphics. Virtually all of the Russian outfit’s new slots are 3D, and all have at least one bonus round. In feel and looks, they’re not too far removed from small independent rivals like Yggdrasil Gaming and Cozy Games.At time of writing, FUGASO has no license in the UK from the Gambling Commission, so British-based gamblers will be blocked from trying out their games, even for free. However, we have found games available at Italian-facing casinos online.

5 reel and 3D slots: The dozen or so FUGASO slots load up via a web browser using HTML5. That makes them ideal for mobile-optimised casinos and slots sites. They are also all played across five reels and – in most cases – three rows. There’s nothing ‘classic’ about FUGASO’s slots output.The standout title is Grand Sumo, an Oriental-themed slot based on IGT’s 720-ways-to-win Multiway Xtra set-up. The honeycomb reels allows for a massive range of payouts, with stakes spread from 0.20-30.00 bets. The game features a free spins round with 5 games up for grabs.

All good slots developers feature a fantasy-themed slot or two, and FUGASO are no different. Magic Destiny features 40 fixed paylines and ‘Super Mega Win’ payouts worth 80,000 coins. Fruits of Neon, meanwhile, taps into the current craze for neon slots, as seen in iSoftBet’s Neon Reels and NetEnt’s Elements. Again, there is big potential for the high rollers with the Mega Wins and Super Mega Wins – an 80,000-coin max payout is possible.Taking things a little more down the video games route, Knockout: The Last Fight features some lovely graphics and the chance to win up to 80,000 coins. While stacked Wilds and random symbols are a decent draw, the randomly-activated ‘Knockout’ feature is the big fight attraction. When this happens, one of the kickboxers/MMA fighters kicks the spinning reels to turn symbols into Wilds and random icons.

Themed Games: While Cosa Nostra might not be called The Godfather part 2, it may as well be. The main character of the slot looks exactly like Robert De Niro as a young Don Corleone in the classic 1974 film.Again, launched in early 2017, the slot features Autoplay, Gamble feature, and play at all coins over 5 reels. It’s also optimised for smartphone and tablet. Free spins can be won by landing three or more Scatters, and there’s an added Gamble bonus to bump up players’ winnings.
