Culling Daniel Lindberg and Mats Westerlund from veteran software developer Net Entertainment and Joachom Timmermans from a seven-year run at Unibet Group, Quickspin organised in 2011 to develop innovative video slots for the free to play social and the online gambling market. The Quickspin team came at their task as gamers out to deliver quality video slots games that they thrilled in playing on their own.
Quickspin inked its first multi year license agreement with social gaming operator Plumbee in March of 2012 and later that year added Betsson Group, Betclic Expekt and Unibet to its client roster. In 2014 the Swedish game developer took dead aim at the British retail market by finalising a deal with Coral and has since wrapped up partnerships with William Hill to bring its entire existing suite of games to the casino’s two million-plus customers and Ladbrokes that has been a betting stalwart since 1886.
On the development side Quickspin has dedicated itself to making its video slots top-rank in design, style, audio and artwork. The nascent developer mad an early mark on the gaming universe with its Big Bad Wold Slot that captured Game of the Year honors at the EGR Operator Awards for 2013.

So far Quickspin has brought twelve video slots games to market. In its first thrust as a developer the company borrowed from British author and poet Robert Southey’s narrative fairy tale of “the Story of the Three Bears.” In Quickspin’s telling of the 1837 yarn Goldilocks and her porridge make the family of bruins so crazed they turn wild, resulting in maximum wins for gamers.
Next up was an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm saga of the fair maiden trapped in a tower, connected to her lover Zal only by her magnificent golden tresses. Rapunzel’s flowing mane is the key to finding stacked and sticky wilds in this five-reel, twenty pay line slots adventure. Quickspin’s third release was the award-winning Big Bad Wolf, again mining the source material from German folk tales. The three porcine homesteaders turn wild in their attempts to keep their houses standing against the entreaties of the determined wolf. Swooping reels also extend the player’s game rounds to build prizes. The lupine blowhard is not without his own weapons – Collect Moon symbols help his cause in blowing down the houses and bringing even more coins into a player’s bank.
In continuing its search for story lines well out of copyright protection Quickspin then released Beowulf from the centuries-old West Saxon epic poem about Scandinavian heroes and monsters. The games marquee features are the Grendel Attach and the showdown of Beowulf and the Dragon with free spins hinging on the result. Quickspin finally unlatched itself from ancient tales with the release of Supernova with three traditional reels and two bonus reels pockmarked with wormholes opening to the galaxy. Multipliers build fortunes with Big, Super and Mega Win bonuses.
Supernova was a brief respite from public domain literary adventures as Quickspin followed up with Treasure Island, Sinbad, and The Three Musketeers, all feature-laden video slots with stacked wilds, free spin bonuses and massive multipliers all woven into innovative gameplay. While the 2013 release of Firestorm has strong overtones of Norway’s immensely popular Friday night television program “National Firewood Night,” it is actually an Aztec-themed video slots that hunts gemstones and gold coins.
In 2014 Quickspin indulged its cartoony side with the introduction of candy-themed Sugar Trail, animal-themed Royal Frog and wealth-themed King Colossus. All feature familiar game play laced with multipliers and free spins. To date Quickspin has not pursued any table games in its online catalogue.
