How High Flyer Games Started

The first online games from High Flyer Games are Savannah Storm and Spooky House, which were released through Game Account Network (GAN) in late 2014 at Foxwoods Social Casino in Connecticut, USA. These were followed by 8 other games, released mostly in partnership with Greentube. These closely matched the land-based titles of similar games. As for the first two games from High Flyer Games available here on Videoslots Casino, these are Dynamite Mine Explosion and Odin's Wild Hunt. Both feature all new and original audio, graphics, concepts, math, trademarks and game functionality. The programming comes through ReelPlay under instruction from High Flyer Games, and distribution comes through the ReelPlay using the Relax network.

Dynamite Mine Explosion was actually launched as a Videoslots Casino exclusive. A 6-reel, 3-row slot, Dynamite Mine Explosion initially starts with 729 paylines. However, this number can increase all the way to 262,144 thanks to an innovative Bonus Ways feature. Land at least one pack of dynamite and it explodes on the reel in question, adding up to 8 symbols per reel. This feature is combined with Exploding Wins, a cascade-style mechanic that has winning symbols explode off the reels, allowing new ones to fall in their place. The result is multiple wins on a single spin, as chain reactions lead to potentially larger payouts. Scatters, which are key to earning free spins, do not explode and as such can accumulate during the course of consecutive exploding wins. 

The second game on offer is Odin's Wild Hunt. This Norse-themed 6-reel, 3-row slot also features the Bonus Ways mechanic, which allows for up to 8 rows per reel and increases the number of paylines from 729 all the way to 262,144. The Exploding Wins are also present and accounted for, blowing winning symbols up in order to make way for new ones. Blowing up the 4 high pays, namely the horse, wolf, raven and owl, also turns them into the highest paying symbol on the reels, Odin himself. As for the Bonus Ways, this time around Thor's hammer Mjolnir is the trigger, with each hammer adding 1-3 extra symbols up to a maximum of 8. Landing 3 scatters triggers the free spins in a round promising to bring more hammers and premium animal symbols, increasing the chances for bigger wins. 

Who Makes High Flyer’s Games?

But what about the people behind the games? Amy Batsiokis is the originator of the game design mechanic, publisher, coordinator and reviewer of all game design, as well as mathematician, for the two games. Amy has over 8 years of experience working with Aristocrat Technologies, including some time in the Las Vegas office, before joining High Flyer Games in 2018. She worked on Buffalo Gold, one of the most successful games from Aristocrat, and was one of the go-to people when it comes to difficult math problems. 

William (aka Bill) Cormack is the founder of High Flyer Games. He spent over 17 years at Aristocrat Technologies, with the last 8 years in Senior Game Development positions. John K has consulted High Flyer Games for the last 6 years after working at Aristocrat Technologies for over 25 years, with the last 15 as Artistic Director.

Bill and John contributed on two games, making a combination of successful developers in both land-based and online space.

She worked for the Las Vegas group Genesis for several years, and more recently she worked with several Las Vegas online social game studios. She is a very competent artist with excellent knowledge of all current technologies, something the company says was a big help to coordinate with software to get the best results for the animations and overall look.
