Iron Dog Studio launched in the UK in 2017 on the 1×2 Network as one of the network’s own developer brands, alongside 1×2 Gaming. The network’s other partners include Black Pudding Games and pioneers of Virtual Sports casual games, Leap Gaming. Iron Dog Studio’s watchwords are innovative games and ultra playability, with a mission statement to create new concepts that entertain and provide superior gaming experiences. Based in Brighton amid England’s ‘silicon beach’, Iron Dog Studio compliments 1×2 Gaming’s lottery, casino and betting products.
While Iron Dog Studio’s history doesn’t date as far back as some studios like NetEnt and Microgaming, it quickly established itself with a trademark style and keen focus on game design. During the first year of Iron Dog’s launch, the studio released a series of slots that focussed on quality over quantity. With a release slate averaging around six slots per year in its first three years, Iron Dog laid the foundations for its later upswing when it began to expand its catalogue with various Megaways™ slots, including the release of Rainbow Wilds Megaways™, an update of its earlier Rainbow Wilds slot.
Because Iron Dog Studio is part of the 1×2 Gaming Network it shares key people throughout the organisation.

Iron Dog blazed trails with early titles like Neon Jungle and Morai Blaze, and it was only a few years until the studio released 1 Million Megaways BC and Christmas Megaways, though it is not restricted to merely releasing Megaways™ slots. The studio also pioneers in the online casino game space, with its 3D series proving attractive with table game fans. This series boasts 3D European Roulette alongside 3D Blackjack and 3D Baccarat.
Among its unique IP is Iron Dog’s 3D table series of games, which delivers hyper realistic gameplay to its casino game setting. The studio’s 3D European Roulette and 3D Blackjack, for example, offer superior graphics and gameplay that focus on upgrading user experience on classic table games. Like most other slots development studios, Iron Dog has released a series of Megaways™ slots that revisit some of the developers most famous slots to deliver fresh impetus into classic ideas.
