About the Developer

NextGen chose to take an unpopular route where they licensed their games to bigger name brands which is not something most operators like Microgaming or Playtech do. NextGen games are available on platforms like Bally, Amaya, Aristocrat and other software brands.

Their games are highly popular, but they are typically regarded as background slots for much bigger casino software operators because they have a lower standard in audio, graphics and other important components of a slot game.

Popular NextGen titles include Dolphin Reef, Doctor Love, Medusa among others. Their slots usually include a mix of features that include scatters, free spins, bonus games and other unique additions that make the games stand out. For example, features like Slide-a-Wild in their Crocodopolis slot and the Select-a-Play feature in Unicorn Legend.
