Originally an Australian-based slot provider, Eyecon now has offices in the UK along with its headquarters in Brisbane and is loved for its slots, scratchcards and online bingo games. Here, we'll take a closer look at what makes this developer so popular.
Scott Murray, Australian iGaming guru, founded Eyecon back in 1997 in Brisbane, Australia, and Gore, a first-person action game, was its first hit, with millions of downloads.
In 1999, the company turned its attention to developing online casino software and online slot games, releasing its very first slot, Temple of Isis, in 2003. This was an instant hit and remains one of Eyecon’s most popular and successful slots. But greater things were to come.
The year 2006 saw the release of the iconic Fluffy Favourites. The original Fluffy Favourites slot is still going strong after more than 15 years. And Eyecon has since developed a whole series of hit sequel games such as Fluffy Favourites Jackpot, Fluffy Favourites Fairground, Fluffy Favourites Fairground Jackpot, Fluffy Too, and Fluffy in Space.
With great games like these, it wasn’t long before Eyecon attracted the attention of the big boys of the online gambling world, and in 2017, Playtech, the world-famous gambling software provider, bought up Eyecon for no less than a cool £50m.
The earlier Eyecon slots now look a little dated in their design, but the software developer is not afraid to take advantage of new and exciting technologies to make its games even more entertaining and interesting for the player.
Just one example is Fluffy Favourites, which received the Megaways treatment in March 2021. The game now offers up to 46,656 ways to win, along with cascades, Wild multipliers, win multipliers, Free Spins, and a top potential win of 20,000 times the bet.
When we talk about top Eyecon slots, the first that comes to mind is Fluffy Fanvourites. But since I’ve already mentioned that above, I won’t go into more of a description here. I will remind you though, that the complete range of this iconic series is available here at Gala Bingo. And that includes the latest addition Fluffy in Space!
But just so you can see that there’s more to Eyecon than just cute bunnies in various settings, here’s a list of my current favourites of their games:
Sugar Train; a 5x3 online slot with some serious win potential boosted by the random Gumball Bonus round that can trigger on any non-winning spin.
White Wizard; this 5x3 game sees the White Wizard acting as Wild, awarding win multipliers, and expanding to fill entire reels in the Free Spins.
Secret Garden; Find the Golden Key to discover the bonuses hidden in the Secret Garden in this 5 reel, 25 payline slot based on the novel and film of the same name.
Eyecon’s long and extensive experience in the industry means its games are always entertaining, and most are potentially very rewarding. And you can play the best from the bet here at Gala Bingo!
