Whilst 4 or 5 major software companies have the online casino slots and table games business more or less sewn up, no-one can touch tiny Neogames when it comes to scratchcards and instant win games. Showing an instinctive grasp of what online gamers enjoy when they’re seeking some good old-fashioned uncomplicated fun, this increasingly well-known outfit started life in 2005 on a mission to produce the best instant win games on the market, and they achieved and maintained their objective very quickly.

Neogames sites all feature a distinctive, refreshingly simple rounded panel-style presentation, invariably with a fun, accessible tabloid feel to them – so it’s not surprising that Neogames power the Mirror Scratchcards site – though they also fulfil instant win duties for bet365; sites that are 1200% powered by Neogames, however, include Prime Scratchcards and Scratch 2 Cash.
At a Neogame site you will find a few casino and table games, but they’re really all about instant win games – and there are so many to choose from the Neogames are in the unique position of having to sub-categorise the games into fantasy, sports and other themes.
Range of games
Don’t go thinking that you only get to rub grey panels off of virtual scratchcards either: Whlst the traditional supermarket-style cardboard games are brilliantly replicated by Neogames, there are some much more dynamic and interesting formats: Horses and cars will race to see if you’ve backed the winner, or football players will take a penalty and if it’s a goal then you’ll win. Obviously these games are subject to the same fairness rules that slots and other games are, so you can enjoy some expected returns of 90%-plus, and have a great time whilst you try for that elusive but very feasible Big Win.
Neogames do also offer some bingo in the form of Electro Bingo, Disco Keno and Bingo Bonanza, so be ready for some unusual falling ball action if you fancy it; you can play them on your mobile as well, with Android, Apple and most other tablet and smartphone devices catered for.
Like most other gaming software companies, Neogames have a flagship site, which in their case is Scratch 2 Cash. Like other Neogames sites it’s not until you open up the instant win games themselves that you’ll see how impressive they are, so make an effort to get past the lobby and you’ll see where the appeal lies.
Neogames operate in 19 different languages and their slogan is ‘act local, be global’ – which sums up their universally appeal and friendly approach very well.
