Who Are These Guys?
Founded in 1999, Next Generation Gaming was one of the pioneers in developing platform-independent content. The company’s longevity, same as is the case with their equally senior rivals, kind of speaks for itself. They believe the success comes from balancing innovations and proven fundamentals, and while continuously encouraging their team to think outside of the box, they make sure to combine the resulting innovations with what they’ve learned during the many years of experience.
End of 2011, NextGen has joined forces with Nyx Interactive to leverage their complementary product ranges, the first contributing their assortment of online and mobile slots, and the other bingo, lottery, and other casino games. NYX Gaming Group is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. These days NextGen games can be found in more than 160 online casinos, but rest assured the best ones are listed right here.
Latest NextGen Slot Reviews
Which Games Do They Provide?
NextGen is a slots specialist and their games consistently come with high quality graphics, and lately also with original bonus features. They can be launched online, on desktops, smartphones and tablets (also available via Apple’s App Store), and played for cash and on social networks. Their mobile platform Move provides some of the most popular NextGen games to mobile casinos.
NextGen slots often feature something called Gameplay Enhancements, such as SuperBet, Select-a-Play, Up Wild, and Slide a Wild. What Super Bet does is that it unlocks new features with a small additional bet, for example extra free games or higher multipliers. Select-a-Play offers a chance to set your own game volatility by choosing between free game types, such as more free spins with a smaller multiplier or fewer free games with a higher multiplier. Up Wild makes wild icons expand upwards, and Slide a Wild gives you the control over where wild symbols are placed and how they behave.
NextGen library currently counts more than 100 slots, many of which have won the hearts of players around the world. Casino Bloke’s included!
Doctor Love is an oldie but goodie, with the man himself paying as much as 5,000x your line bet and using his love meter to offer free games with all prizes tripled. Medusa was born about the same time, mesmerising us with the help of free spins with expanded frozen wilds and multipliers, plus a pick-and-click mini game awarding instant prizes.
Casino Bloke himself became a huge fan once he has played Foxin’ Wins Again. In this game, fox pups turn symbols wild, and you can get more of them to join the party by using the above mentioned Super Bet. Free games come with doubled prizes, and randomly-triggered Fox Funds will top up your balance for no reason at all. Leprechaun Shakedown is another random bonus round, taking you to a second screen to chase the cheeky leprechaun, shake him for all he’s worth, and collect coins.
Let’s not forget to mention some of the newer releases, such as lovely Snowflakes, playing with randomly triggered Icy Wild and Wild Wind features, and generous Frozen Wilds Free Games. Stunning Xing Guardian comes with 1,024 ways to win, random stacked wilds and a unique locked reel feature, while the enchanting Theatre of Night wins both ways and will appeal to those who love their games beautiful but simple in terms of mechanics. Exotic Shangri La looks and sound lovely, and is packed with features such as 4 bonuses won by spinning of the bonus wheel: free games, super free games, the Chest Bonus and the Trail Bonus.
NextGen Table Games
NextGen doesn’t actually produce table games, nor any other casino games apart from slots. That’s what they’ve decided to focus on, and Nyx uses other design houses to develop table games, video pokers and specialty games under their brand.

None, and will never happen. (Darn, Casino Bloke should know one should never say never, but… yeah, never.)
The team claims they constantly keep asking themselves the question ‘What makes a great game?‘ While recognising the answer isn’t simple, they consider this to be a benefit, as otherwise „it just wouldn’t be as much fun“. NextGen gives the artists plenty of room to express their creativity, but there is also a ‘Product Team’ whose role is to think of new ways to enhance player’s experience. This is probably one of the reasons why today their games are universally liked and their software a welcome addition to many of online casinos out there.
