Microgaming Signs Website Deal With PearFiction

Microgaming has an exclusive deal with PearFiction Studios that will see the Montreal-based game designer supply the company’s website with content.

Chicago Gold launch

The collaboration kicks off on February 4 with the launch of the Chicago Gold mobster escapade, a high-volatility, 40-payline slot that is expected to come packed with free spins and respins and will be the first big global game on the Microgaming network to feature PearFiction.

New bonus features such as Cash Collection and the Big Boss Jackpot Reveal are added by Chicago Gold and PearFiction’s crazy prehistoric adventure Blazing Mammoth will soon follow through the network.

Proven innovators

Andrew Booth, games director for Microgaming, stated: “PearFiction Studios are proven innovators who marry great artwork with technical insights, game performance and a huge sense of fun. Join us on January 28 when we take a closer look at Chicago Gold and learn more about the PearFiction Studios team.”

Previously, PearFiction Studios collaborated with Microgaming on a one-off project to create the Smashing Biscuit punk rock band themed game, both stating that the resulting success encouraged the couple to take the partnership to the next level.

Transformative distribution deal

The scope and size of the Microgaming platform made this a transformative distribution deal for his blossoming studio, said Thierry Semoff, chief executive officer of PearFiction Studios.

“When an industry pioneer like Microgaming wants you on board, it’s a real recognition that the games you’re creating are good and that all your hard work is paying off,” Semoff added.
