Launched in 2017 as an instant games developer and provider with headquarters in Antigua, Octopus Gaming entered the market with a portfolio of slot machines, table games, video poker and arcades.
When adding its releases to our database, which is a home to over 2000 games from a variety of suppliers, we have discovered that most of these creations are already listed on our portal – under the name of the TopGame. This is the case with slot machines like Bee Land, Aladdin’s Treasure, Carnival of Venice, Cool Stone Age, Crazy Jungle and many more.
In search for the answer how is this possible, since the website of the provider does not inform visitors about such details, we have discovered that the same question bothered our colleagues at CasinoListings. In the article TopGame Jackpots Information, they are mentioning the fact that while the owners of the new software insist they simply bought the already produced games, owners of platforms where this entertainment is hosted mention that the new company is managed by the people that used to be in charge at TopGame.
A little history here – TopGame’s reputation was damaged a few years ago when the online community expressed concerns about the company’s progressive jackpots missing certain symbols. This made it impossible for anyone to hit the advertised big win. While the studio tried to fix this and has issued several statements on the cause, the trust was lost.
As our colleagues from World Casino Directory remind us in their review, it was in 2015 that the assets of the developer were bought out by Pragmatic Play. The correct question would be – if Pragmatic Play bought TopGame with its developments, doesn’t it mean that now some of the games in their portfolio match the ones in the collection of Octopus Gaming, who if their statement is true also bought games produced by TopGame? After checking the website of Pragmatic Play, we’ve discovered that most of the releases that came with the 2015 deal are now deleted.
With all that being said, we will all just need to wait for the official statements from the management of the new software. The history of online gambling remembers cases of successful rebranding. Thus, what was known as BetOnSoft many years ago, was then renamed to Saucify when the company decided it needed a fresh start with its B2B services. We do believe that those in charge at Octopus Gaming will be able to clarify the situation and demonstrate that this is a software worth trusting in and playing at.
