Spearhead Studios Review

Introduction


Spearhead Studios is an online casino game provider, founded in 2019, with the company's headquarters located in Paceville, Malta, powered by Every Matrix Software Limited, a company licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority. 

Many online casino software developers share common goals. For example, to design great games that provide a top-notch gambling experience to players or to create a reputable, popular portfolio packed with hit titles… 

Spearhead Studios on top of that, has a goal to build local games for local markets. We may say that they are performing quite well in all previously mentioned fields. The studio's games are certified in over a dozen markets across Europe and Latin America. 

This developer is all about premium, cross-platform optimized, high-quality HTML5 casino games. But, besides developing online gambling products, the company is also providing services to the iGaming industry members.  

They collaborate with major aggregators (Microgaming, Relax Gaming, SoftSwis…) that help them out to offer their contents in multiple markets to various online operators.  

At the same time, Spearhead Studios offers its own Remote Gaming Server Matrix and integration frameworks to other independent developers that create and distribute their content that way. 

The quality of Spearhead’s graphics, the sound design and suitable animations do stand out, but above all this studio recognizes the need for a fresh and exciting gameplay. 

Online Slots 

The studio works on innovative mathematical models for their slot games, but attractive features bring the real value to the games.  

Spearhead Studios like to impress and surprise their players. If you chose to play their slot games you can count on unexpected rewards and features such as: bonus spins, special symbols that bring rewards, expanding scatters, multipliers, sticky wilds and more. 

The developer has a portfolio that holds many slot game titles: Five Ball Fiesta, Golden Engines, Hello Paris, Fruit Hot Bonanza, Midnight Money, Fabulous Piggy Bank, Lucky Heaven, Total Summer Bliss, Lucky Mr. Wild, Weight of the Gun, Ruler of Egypt, Valley of the Muses, Spin Joy Society, Orango Tango, Bounty on the High Seas, Sweet Gems, Spicy Fruits, Knights of Fortune, Mighty Fruits, Wild Gold, Wild Empire Rome, Fergus O'Fun's Shamrock Treasures, Book of Souls II El Dorado, Black Forest, Super 7 Deluxe... 

Table Games

Designed for mobile devices, Spearhead’s “Slider Games” are specifically created for punters that have a short, but frequent, suitable occasion to play online casino games on the go. 

These are classic, popular titles such as: European Roulette, Fruits & 777’s Slot, Blackjack, Video Poker ...  

The sportsbook players will probably also find this gaming option very attractive.  

To play, punters need to tap and swipe a small call to action slider button, and the games page is quickly displayed. If they want to exit the game, players simply swipe back to the previous page or live screen. 

The games get loaded into an off-screen HTML layer, optimized for portrait layout. 

Blackjack


Blackjack
 

The blackjack game offers standard rules for an online casino. The table allows for the player to play up to three hands. The help file claims the return is 99.59%, but my house edge calculator says 99.54%. You can choose who to believe. As seen in the thumbnail, the graphics are pretty basic.

The following table shows the Blackjack games available in alphabetical order.

Blackjack 1.5 Stand Yes Any 2 1 No No Yes No 99.54% 6 Yes


Roulette


Single zero roulette
 

Like most software brands, Spearhead Studios offers single-zero roulette, which has a house edge of 2.70% on all bets. I had difficulty playing the demo on their web site, but did manage to capture this screenshot. Like the blackjack game, the graphics are pretty simple and probably meant for a mobile device.

Slot machines


Book of Souls

Eternal Shogi

Fruit Slot

Pirates

Pop Star

Super 7 Deluxe

Wild Reels

Wilds of Wall Street

Midnight Madness

Spearhead slots are quite nicely done. I would describe them as relaxing as opposed to exciting. Many have Asian themes and a soft soundtrack to gently lull the player into a sense of bliss. The game features one some of them, especially Wilds of Wall Street, were original and creative. They nicely disclose the returns in the help screens. Here are most of them:

  • Giant Panda -- 96.81%
  • Wilds of Wall Street -- 96.5%
  • Midnight Madness -- 96.00%
  • Wild Reels -- 97%
  • Book of Souls -- 96.9%
  • Pop Star -- 96.70%
  • Eternal Shogi -- 95.83%
  • Pirates of the Mediterranean -- 96.02%

Conclusion

Spearhead Studios is on the mission “to change the game of game making”. We have to admit that this may be a very difficult task, in such a competitive market.  

But, it is obvious that the company is investing hard into their game production and that they have a great potential to keep operators’ and players' attention on their premium titles.
