Betsoft have put themselves in an incredibly enviable position; all you need to do is look at a game to know that it’s a Betsoft game. Despite the myriad themes and mechanics, their creative use of 3D graphics have become a company hallmark, and they continue to push the envelope with what they can accomplish.
Here are just a few of our favourite Betsoft games.
Good Girl Bad Girl
It’s very rare for a pokie to experiment with the logistics of the format, which is why Good Girl Bad Girl is so unique – and fun. Themed after the eternal battle between good and evil – angels and devils – Good Girl Bad Girl allows punters to effectively choose how volatile they’d like the game to be. Playing the good side can lead to a bunch of smaller, more frequent wins, while turning to the bad side offers rarer but larger wins. While the graphics may look a bit dated, the high payout rate and progressive jackpots make Good Girl Bad Girl not only a must-play, but an example of Betsoft at its best.
Lost tells the story of an archeologist navigating an Egyptian tomb, and finding more than he bargained for. While the game doesn’t have the greatest return and doesn’t offer free spins, there are more than enough bonus features to make up for it. The middle reel will always re-spin after a win, offering up to a 5x multiplier on additional wins, and the monkey bonus – where a monkey will randomly appear and grant you the ability to uncover your own treasure – can translate to significant winnings. Add in a great soundtrack, spoken voice lines (about as rare in the pokies world as ancient riches), and 30 paylines, and it’s easy to see why Lost is a standout title, even among Betsoft’s catalogue.
There have been heaps of pokies about the wild west, but for our money, The True Sheriff is one of the best. Filled with charming animations and a great selection of features, the game is loaded with the sort of personality that only the best developers can create. It’s a testament to Betsoft’s craftsmanship that The True Sheriff is genuinely exciting to play, and with wild reels and free spins, there’s plenty here to encourage the punter to keep going.
