Lost World Games Slot Machines
Great things were expected of Lost World Games whenever they burst onto the scene in December 2013 as an innovative new developer with the goal of developing entertaining and engaging online slot machines, but the word undiscovered has become a key part of their ‘undiscovered treasures of the casino game industry’ tagline in the years that have followed.
Founded by Rob Smith, a highly experienced gaming consultant and practising solicitor who is just as comfortable designing games as he is discussing intellectual property law, Lost World Games currently seems to be a one-man operation based in Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire. This market town in Greater Manchester, England, is steeped in history after countless discoveries of Stone Age, Bronze Age and Viking treasures over the years, however, you won’t find any casino slot machines based on these periods while browsing the company’s miniscule portfolio.
Trying to Do Something Different
Lost World Games has never hidden its desire to start a new breed of online casino games and the company revealed very early in its existence that they would be striving to develop something different rather than releasing yet another slot based on gems, pirates or leprechauns – although they didn’t completely rule these themes out as they suggested they could be a possibility if an innovative approach could be taken.
Instead, the ‘geek culture’ of the company is strongly reflected in its passion for Eastern cultures. This means their inspiration comes from anime, console and PC games, comics, sci-fi and blockbuster movies. Considering how small the company is, it’s unrealistic to expect any slots based on box office movies due to the hefty licensing fees that would be required, but their King of Kaiju: Rampage Riches video slot is a prime example of what can be achieved when the creative juices flow.

Oh No, Odobo!
Rob founded Lost World Games while representing Odobo as their Head of Business Affairs, therefore the June 2015 announcement that Odobo had been chosen as the channel to release the company’s first three games came as absolutely no surprise to anyone, however, a very big surprise was to come just under twelve months of the deal being announced.
Founded in 2011 by industry veteran Ashley Lang and based in Gibraltar, Odobo set its sights on becoming the leading casino mobile games distributor for regulated markets and managed to secure deals with some of the biggest operators in the business, including the likes of Mr Green, bet365 and Coral Casino, but increasingly heavy financial costs resulted in the company announcing its closure in May 2016.
So, where did that leave Lost World Games you might ask? Well, their first title, King of Kaiju: Rampage Riches, was initially released as a period exclusive at Coral Casino in August 2015 just a few months after the deal with Odobo was announced. Since the closure of Odobo, it seems that Quickfire, powered using software by Microgaming, is their new platform of choice for this sensational game at least.
The Kaiju Are on a Rampage
King of Kaiju: Rampage Riches is the first of a suite of monster inspired real money online slots by Lost World Games and it’s sure to have you on the edge of your seat. The highly acclaimed slot has proven to be a huge hit amongst players and that will have been a major relief for the company considering over twelve months was spent planning, designing and developing it.
Designed to pay homage to Japanese-themed kaiju movies like Godzilla and Mothra, gamification is at the core of King of Kaiju: Rampage Riches with over forty in-game achievements to keep you immersed in the thrilling action with artwork and bonus games changing depending on what has been unlocked.
Boasting a simple structure of 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and 20 fixed paylines, it boasts an impressive payout percentage of 96.58% and has been packed with exciting bonus features – a Free Spins feature with guaranteed Wilds on every spin, Radioactive Exploding Wilds which can randomly transform between two and five other symbols into Wilds, plus there is an epic four-stage Rampage Bonus which sees you select buildings for the kaiju to destroy in London, New York, Tokyo and Rome with every crumbling building resulting in lots of real cash!
While patiently waiting for more kaiju to be set loose, you’re probably wondering where you can play the other two slot machines that were announced alongside King of Kaiju: Rampage Riches back in June 2015. Unfortunately, it seems that neither Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde or Beer Goggles have gone live at any online casinos yet – in fact, there’s not even been any confirmation that development has concluded for either of them. That’s a real shame because the little information and artwork that has been posted on the Lost World Games website for each game had many players eagerly anticipating their release.
Dr Henry Jekyll’s dark and dingy laboratory will be the location for Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novella the ‘Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’, the 5x3 reeled slot with 25 paylines boasts an impressive Victorian steampunk design, complete with gears representing the spin and autoplay buttons as well as large ventilation tubes, cylinders and chemical apparatus on display in the background, as you set about creating the ultimate potion that will unleash the evil Edward Hyde and big wins. The return-to-player percentage is just as impressive as the visuals at 96.04% and there are a couple of bonus features, a Wild symbol and a Free Spins feature that can be retriggered, to help you concoct the ultimate win.
Beer Goggles will see you pop down to the White Hart, a traditional English pub located in the countryside, where you’ll be sipping on a host of delicious ales. A few bevvies too many can often lead to double vision, but you’ll be hoping to see at least triple as that’s the minimum number of matching symbols required from the leftmost reel in this 5-reeled slot with 40 paylines. Lost World Games have revealed that it will boast a highly volatile maths model and there is plenty more to get excited about as there will be Stacked Wilds, a Wild Reel that can be purchased, plus a Free Spins feature with multiplier bonuses that can be retriggered – now that’s the perfect excuse for a night at the pub!
Can They Disrupt the Casino Game Sector?
Lost World Games have always made it clear that their goal has been to disrupt the casino game sector by developing innovative HTML5 games that focus on incredible artwork and unique bonus features, but have they been successful so far? Well, it would be very easy to say no due to the fact they’ve only released one game to date, however, nobody can deny how incredible King of Kaiju: Rampage Riches is. After all, it’s only available to play at the best online casinos and that’s a testament to what a sensational game it is.
It’s clear that the founder has his fingers in many pies, but it would be a great shame if Lost World Games don’t follow through with the other two slots that they’ve announced plans for and we are keeping our fingers crossed that they’ll set more kaiju on the loose too – it could lead to one of the most thrilling online slots series we’ve ever seen!
