with Real Money Slots
If there’s one Canadian city that’s synonymous with software, it’s Vancouver. British Columbia’s sprawling seaport is classified as a beta global city – but it’s an alpha in the world of software development. Countless tech firms list Vancouver as their home, the place where they work, create and play.
Add the name Pipeline49 to that list. Pipeline49 Technology Group Inc, to give them their full epithet, are so named because they’re situated on the 49th parallel and they’ve always got something exciting in the pipeline. New games, new platforms and new ways for players to win money and for clients to make money off Pipeline49’s range of iGaming software.
From slots to table games and from lottery games to video poker, if it involves gambling of any kind, Pipeline49 can create it.
More than anything, Pipeline49’s speciality lies in social betting games. The games they design are highly interactive; the sort you start playing and then, hours later, find yourself wondering where the time went. From the storyline to the graphics, every last element of the firm’s highly detailed games has been agonised over, because perfection breeds pleasure.
The Vancouver firm ascribe their success to a combination of talented staff, advanced processes and investment in the latest infrastructure. Based on the recruitment drive Pipeline49 have recently launched, the company’s star is certainly in the ascendancy. The British Columbia-based firm are currently seeking a Java Developer and HTML5 Game Developer, the latter role indicative of their commitment to creating games that work in-browser with no downloadable software required.

Take a Peek into the Pipeline
At the head of the company is president and director Paul Nyzuk. With more that 20 years’ industry experience, he understands what makes the iGaming sector tick and where it’s headed.
Following a successful stint as COO of Micropower Corp, whose poker software has been used by ESPN and UK magazine FHM, Paul has helped transform Pipeline49 into a multinational, multi-channel company that has the nous and the infrastructure to handle projects large and small.
Ably aiding him at the wheel is COO Rob Picard, a man whose investment banking background has equipped him for crunching the numbers and managing the ambitious projects that Pipeline49 take on.
The Antisocial Social Gamers
Backgammon, poker, HD slots and Keno are just a small sampler of the games Pipeline49 produce. The company codes its titles so that they function across a range of platforms including Windows, iOS, Android and, in the case of their social games, Facebook.
In addition to crafting slick and versatile games, Pipeline49 provide bespoke development and consultancy services to their clients who are based across the globe.
Prospective partners are invited to contact the Vancouver development company by phone, email or via their social channels to find out more about the services they can supply. Phone and email are probably the best options; for a company that’s committed to social gaming, Pipeline49 don’t appear to have gotten the hang of social media themselves. Then again, perhaps they’ve simply been too busy crafting killer games to have updated their Facebook page since 2013 or to have tweeted ever.
Pipeline49 may not do social, but they certainly make it. There’s an increasing demand for social games from casinos, and no wonder: giving people the ability to play directly within the social platforms where they already spend an inordinate amount of time is far more natural than enticing them to create an account with a third-party website – that step can come later.
Get people accustomed to the games and environment of a casino and, if they like what they see, odds are they’ll stick around and dip into their own pockets when the time comes to create an account. Pipeline49’s social games are designed to complement their clients’ existing games and products.
When it comes to social gaming, Pipeline49 present their clients with a number of options. The Canadian company can create standalone games with customisable branding or develop complete solutions that see web-based games paired simultaneously with a social gaming conversion. Once players have gotten a taste for the light version, it’ll be easier to convince them to make the transition to the full version hosted on the casino’s website, where the big prizes and the big money lies.
Badges and Baubles
Pipeline49’s games may emulate their real money casino counterparts, but they’re not just conversions of existing titles. Each one takes advantage of the features and flourishes that are unique to social gaming, on Facebook in particular. Facebook credits, levels of increasing difficulty, badges, the ability to pass gifts on to Facebook friends and leaderboards are all part of the package.
With complete admin and reporting elements built in, Pipeline49 provide everything an operator needs to enter the social gaming sphere. For companies seeking to transform their existing games into profitable social titles, Pipeline49 can prove instrumental, getting the job done promptly and with the minimum of fuss.
Games Glorious Games
For all the talk about integrated solutions and consultancy, its games are the measure of what Pipeline49 can do. They’re the yardstick, the metric by which all of its endeavours are judged. The company are nothing if not prolific: their coders have been responsible for conjuring some cracking games spanning some half a dozen categories. Backgammon, lottery games, poker, slots, table games and video poker encompass Pipeline49’s complete suite of games.
Most of the firm’s releases fall under the category of video poker, though slots provide the best showcase of their creativity.
While slots and poker don’t have a whole lot in common, other than being played under the same roof, there’s a certain verisimilitude between Pipeline49’s games – no matter how disparate their genres. In other words, if you’ve seen one Pipeline49 game, you’ll have no trouble recognising another. That’s not to say their games are derivative – far from it. Rather, it’s more a case of the firm’s devs and designers deploying similar stylistic flourishes throughout. Whether you’re playing a Pipeline49 video slot or a poker table, expect to be treated by the same design, tasteful colours and sharp detail.
Slots R Us
Thematically, Pipeline49’s slots veer from the old to the new, with the likes of Pirate’s Booty and Sir Cash-A-Lot complemented by Mad Science and Vault Buster. The latter is a traditional 3-reel slot complete with BAR symbols and 7s. Players must match the correct combination and break their way into the bank vault that holds the jackpot.
Cashcow sees Pipeline49 up the ante to 5 reels, with comical chickens and cows among the farmyard characters to be collected. Then there’s Closest to the Pin, whose reels turn into golf balls when spun. Symbols include a golf umbrella, scorecard, cap, flag and golf shoes. The most impressive thing about this and the company’s other slots isn’t the graphics, nice as they are – it’s the loading times. Pipeline49’s slots load rapidly and smoothly.
When it comes to table games, the Vancouver devs have again come up trumps; the depth and detail applied to their American Roulette and Baccarat tables is immense. Combined, once again, with super-fast loading times and it would be fair to say that Pipeline49’s clean code is one of their greatest assets.
They’re not the first Canadian company to attempt to conquer the iGaming industry and they certainly won’t be the last. Amidst some extremely tough competition, however, Pipeline49 can hold their own. From online casinos to social platforms, the company’s sleek, contemporary games look the part and play beautifully. This is how it’s done.
