Like something out of a bad romantic comedy, the creation of Lightning Box Games began in 2004 when Peter met Dave. Two Australian maths geniuses combined forces to create a company that focuses on maths-based slots to give us a magic experience. Bonza!
Back in 2004, Lightning Box came into fruition in Australia, where it’s still based in its Sydney office. Two great minds, Peter Causley and David Little, came up with a formula that blends maths, top graphics, the crispest of audio and a touch of magic. And time and time again, we’ve seen that happen with each slot that it releases. When it first started out, Lightning Box focused solely on slots for the land-based games sector but it wasn’t long before it branched out into online gaming. After all, that’s where the best players are, right?
By creating a maths model of gaming, Lightning Box are able to give us slots which come with all sorts of winning possibilities. Different bonus features that go above and beyond the traditional free spins. And all combined with world-class graphics and audio. This has all been seen in slots such as Panda Pow!, Respin Rhino and the adorable Astro Cat and Astro Pug. And to give homage to its home country, we also got Redroo, a mighty kangaroo inspired slot set in the Australian outback.
In order to give players around the world the chance to enjoy its slots, Lightning Box have ensured it meets the toughest regulations for both offline and online regulated casino markets. With an ever-expanding player base and growing portfolio, it’s no wonder that Lightning Box have been recognised for its services to the industry. In 2017 at the EGR B2B Awards it was a finalist for “Innovation in slot provision”, recognised for its cutting-edge formula.
Celebrated for its contribution to online slots, it was only a matter of time for Lightning Box to expand with partnerships. In 2017, it signed an agreement with Microgaming’s Quickfire platform and in 2018, furthered its reach even more by agreeing a deal with SG Digital. It doesn’t matter if it’s based in the far side of Sydney, developers everywhere know that Lightning Box delivers the goods.
The background and reputation of Lightning Box speaks for itself really. 40 years of gaming maths brains. Decades of experience. A portfolio of online slots that boast amazing themes (we mean, come on, a pug in space – how great!) and enhanced gameplay. It’s only a matter of time before the awards come flooding in. Though like Ed Sheeran and other songwriters behind the scenes, perhaps Lightning Box will be creating slots for other developers and while they bask in the glory, poor old Lightning Box remains the unsung hero. But then again, as an Australian company, we know it wouldn’t keep quiet about that! Pretty sure Ed doesn’t either.
