Creative director at Foxium, Daniil Sanders, said in an interview for LCB that when the company was established they wanted to create something different and standing out from the crowd. He shared that Foxium uses real-time 3D rendering processes for game characters and a new game engine. The studio’s motto is “outfoxing the ordinary” – would you look at that! It’s exactly what we’ve been waiting for, a software studio prepared to work their socks off to redefine the industry standards.
Aside from being rich in content, graphics and engaging features, Foxuim online slots are also rather rewarding, with RTP percentages averaging somewhere around 96%, often going higher. FruitZ, for instance, has an expected RTP of between 92.98% and 96.96%. In this slot, you earn special cards, with the RTP rising by 0.5% for every card added to the eight collections available. Quite unusual and intriguing, wouldn’t you agree?
The licensed slot Vampire: The Masquerade – Las Vegas, themed around the RPG White Wolf World of Darkness franchise, is a five-reel slot with 20 paylines that comes with an RTP of 96.02%. Astro Legends stands at 96.63%, whereas The Great Albini passes with flying colours with a return rate of 96.66%.

The new kids on the block barely had enough time to build a double-figure gaming portfolio, and apparently, they don’t want to rush it either. That’s ok with us, as we’ll take quality over quantity any time. And quality is no doubt what Foxium delivers; all their slots (because this is what it comes down to) feature innovative gameplay, incorporate a storytelling element, and come with unique graphics which make their products instantly recognisable. There is no software to download and all games can be played instantly in one’s internet browser, with particular care and performance improvements being applied in the cases of mobile gaming.
FruitZ slot, set in the 1940’s, invites players to help Joi the heroine as she fights off the plant-zombie infestation on her farm. A pre-bonus game will have you spin to win one of 4 meta-games including two ‘pick-me’ games with a random multiplier, free games round during which two random full-length reels lock with Wild symbols, and free spins with sticky Wilds. There’s also a unique Card Collection feature which increases the game’s RTP by as much as 0.5%.
There is also the Big Time Journey, where it all began for Foxium. With the help of Artur’s time machine you’ll travel to 5 different time periods, the Ice age, Prehistoric era, Medieval age, the Victorian era and World War I period, starting with 1930’s London. As Artur collects valuable artefacts, you’ll benefit from collectibles such as Power Gems and 23 achievements, and get challenged to uncover a hidden World War I scene. Hefty bonuses and free spins will be triggered as you progress through each new period.
The latest Foxuim release, Boom Pirates, features and expanding reel grid and up to 10,077,696 ways to win! Yep, you’re read that well. The era of FOXIFY™ and WONDERWAYS™ features has begun.
Probably didn’t get around to it yet, not sure if they intend to. Much like the majority of new-generation casino software providers, Foxium is mainly directing its capacities towards slot machines. Over time, their line of products will surely expand, but it remains a question whether any of the games that join the library will be suited for the “table games” category.
None of the video slots made by Foxium has progressive jackpot prizes. The company’s tenth game has recently joined the library and for the time being, the developers seem to be exploring how to enhance the gameplay and keep delivering eye-catching art, without considering the possibility of incorporating progressive jackpot pots into future products. Never say never, people often say. It takes guts to enter the pooled jackpot area, and Foxium is a brave developer, so we’ll see what happens.
Nope, and can’t imagine they ever will. It would be quite unrealistic to expect a boutique slots developer such as Foxium to start producing live casino games with trained dealers. It doesn’t fit their style and it is probably for the best to leave live casino content in more experienced hands of proven providers. The Estonian team can keep on “outfoxing the ordinary” in the slots department and nobody would mind it.
The first game that Foxium ever released wasn’t even a slot machine. It was an original game called Happy Smoothie and it was available via App Store. This was in early 2014 when the company only had four employees, which are now the brand’s main artist (designer), CTO, creative designer and CEO. Later came Big Time Journey, the first full-fledged slot from Foxium that went live through Odobo.
The Estonian guys and girls have proven to be highly creative and not willing to compromise on quality. We love what they came so far and hold them to their promise “never to become complacent but to continue giving that wow experience with each new release”. They seem genuine and honest about their work, accomplishments and plans. People who aren’t afraid to admit that they found it very changing to convince operators to believe in their products, as a new studio, deserve respect and a chance to shine. Keep outfoxing the ordinary, Foxium!
