Iron Dog Studio is one of the newest faces on the online gaming scene which launched only recently in 2016. The company is based out of Hove, UK, and primarily focuses on the UK market, its exposure still being relatively small to determine whether they have a presence in other major markets as well.
Unlike other bigger companies which represent stand-alone brands, Iron Dog Studio is actually a division of the 1x2 Gaming Company and part of its network. As such, the studio’s games are not directly supplied by them and can only be found at operators who directly work with their suppliers. The main channel for the distribution of Iron Dog Studio’s games is the 1x2 Network but since 2017 supply was also made possible through the NYX OGS system from NYX Gaming Group.
Compared to other big names in the business, the output and footprint of Iron Dog Studio are relatively small, like with any new company. But even though the game variety this studio offers doesn’t really compare to what other notable game providers have produced, it does have value to bring to the table with its original games which boast impressive graphics and design features that are in line with modern gaming trends.
Being in the business for such a short period, Iron Dog Studio hasn’t had the time to expand on its operations and build a bigger product portfolio like its parent company 1x2 Gaming has with its lottery, casino, and betting products and other services like sub-licensing and wallet integration. Therefore, its main area of expertise is producing casino slot and table games which are currently found in small numbers but are likely to expand as the studio keeps moving forward.
A year after its launch, Iron Dog Studio managed to produce less than a dozen slot games, all of which are mobile-friendly. Instead of focusing on quantity, this UK game maker takes its time to produce slots that can not only attract players with bonus features and themes but also ones that have a great presentation that can grab your attention right from your first spin.
In a way, what the studio does is similar to the work of other newer studios like Thunderkick which produce slots that can be easily distinguished in today's competitive market, ones that are quite different from what 1x2 Gaming makes on its own.
One of the most original designs of Iron Dog Studio is Paint - a simply named, cheerful slot game that accurately represents the studio’s penchant for creativity and excellent design quality. At its core, this is a 5-reel, 20 payline game with 3 rows of symbols and a mobile-friendly layout. But outside of it, it's a visually stimulating game with bright colors, unusual animations, and an array of extras, just like most of the slot games from this game company.
The main bonus features to look out for in this slot are the Paint Splashes. The Pink Paint Splash is the most important out of all splashes since it’s the one that triggers a Free Spin that can be additionally re-triggered on the next spin. Other paint splashes in the game can add various multipliers to your Free Spins wins while even more opportunities lurk in the Balloon Bonus round, where you'll get to pop paint-filled balloons to win multipliers to your line win. As for the RTP, it is estimated to be at 95.8%.
Cherry Blast is another popular game from Iron Dog Studio and it is built on the classic legacy of cherry slot machines but with an entirely different look and feel and an RTP of 96%. A graphically impressive 5-reel game with 20 fixed paylines and 3 rows of HD fruit symbols that spin to the sound of a funky disco soundtrack, Cherry Blast breathes new energy into a classic slot theme to captivate both modern and old-school players.
But the presentation isn't the only thing worth noting about this game. Cherry Blast also packs 8 different extras which range from your standard Wild and Scatter symbols to Free Spins and Cherry Bombs that disperse bonus symbols on the reels when they explode (thus the name). And if you're lucky enough to collect 3 Cherry Bonus symbols, you'll also get to play a Pac-Man-like bonus round where you can trigger even more interesting prizes.
Thus far, the game studio has made only a limited number of table games. European Roulette was the first table game made by the company and it set the tone for what quality one should expect out of their future table game additions. This game has a 97.3% RTP and features a standard single-zero paytable with additional Neighbours, Orphans and Tiers bets. But where it stands out is the overall presentation, which sets itself apart with advanced wheel animations, crystal-clear graphics, and voice narration.
Another standout game is the more recent 3D Blackjack, which features the same relaxing lounge music and voice narration of the Roulette product. This game comes with a 99.5% RTP and fairly liberal rules that allow doubling down on all hands and splitting hands, but only once. The payouts are standard 3:2 payouts and there is also insurance offered at the table at 2:1. But the best of all is that the dealer stands on all 17s and draws up to 16s. However, there is no information on how many decks are used in the game.
Like 1x2 Gaming, Iron Dog Studio is based and licensed in England by the UKGC under the same license number as its parent company. The software made by the gaming company is also certified by testing and auditing agency NMi Gaming as well as Quinel Limited, who are likewise an internationally accredited inspection and testing agency. The main market Iron Dog Studio targets are domestic gamblers from the UK but you might also be able to find its games across other international operators that don’t cater to UK players.Back to top
