The whole team of Espresso Games, the renowned developing studio specializing in the creation of tailor-made games, is eager and is looking forward to competing with all the participants for the B.F.T.H. Arena Awards, organized by BetConstruct.

The awards are a celebration of innovation and creativity within the iGaming industry and it is an amazing opportunity to show off the talent of all providers. It is Max Rizzo, the company’s CEO, who comments on Espresso Games’ participation in this extraordinary event:

“We are delighted to participate with great enthusiasm in this unique award promoted by BetConstruct, a brand known for constantly differentiating itself from the competition at every event.

Espresso Games boasts a solid 21-year experience in the gaming industry, with 18 years dedicated to creating tailor-made games to meet our partners’ specific needs.

On the occasion of this inspiring event, we seized the opportunity to interpret Betconstruct’s interest in globally showcasing its extraordinary assets, also through the games developed by its partners. From this vision, the slot ‘Mr. First Fast Token Show’ was born, where Akneye and Bahamut are connected by Fast Tokens, all eager to appear valuable and give players the best chance of winning. The storytelling of the slot is not an end in itself but was designed to evolve in following creations that will focus on the distinctive themes represented in “Mr. First Fast Token Show”.

An example is represented in our ‘Akneye First Fan’ video poker, where Mr. First is no longer the host of his show, but he and his enjoyable family are the first fans of the Akneye brand, which offers lucky players a fantastic Jackpot. If the games are successful, we could consider creating a game dedicated to the Bahamut machine and so on.

In any case, both the slot and the video poker were created in perfect harmony with each other and each of their elements faithfully reflects the features envisioned by the creators of the Mr. First advertising campaigns”.

Mr. Rizzo also added:

“We are honored to consolidate a collaboration that has already been solid for several years.”

Ruzanna Elchyan, head of gaming at BetConstruct, shared her thoughts about these 2 new additions:

“We are thrilled about the 2 new additions by Espresso Games to the B.F.T.H. Arena Awards. We know that Espresso Games is particularly specialized in tailor-made customizations and we could go see the commitment and detailed analysis behind their work. With their participation, we are glad to promote creativity and innovation and we can confirm that BetConstruct is not only synonymous with quality and innovation but also a great source of inspiration.”
