Chris Taylor, our chief editor at Online-Slot.co.uk, sat down with Amit Samji, Principal Game Producer at Push Gaming following our meeting at the ICE 2023 convention. Based in London, Amit has been at Push Gaming since September 2017 and has previous worked at Aspers Casino.

We asked Amit about the best performing slot games of 2022, what is coming in 2023, whether they will be a Jammin’ Jars 3 slot and how regulation is affecting the design of their slots. Enjoy!

1. What was the best performing slot of 2022?

It’s hard to say, there is a huge variety! If I had to choose one it would be Retro Tapes. It is an exciting game and with the magnet mechanic, we’re seeing super huge wins. The feature potential is also noticeable right away.

2. What is planned for 2023?

We want to deliver more games with features and mechanics that are fan favourites, along with unique takes that become popular in their own right.

3. Are sequels a focus in 2023?

Yes, as mentioned above, we have proven fan favourite mechanics that we want to introduce in sequels and new games.

At time of writing, Push Gaming released the Crystal Catcher slot. It’s very similar to the Fire Hopper game.

4. Will there be a Jammin’ Jars 3?

Some do consider our upcoming game Giga Jar as Jammin’ Jars 3 in all but name, it has all the Jammin’ Jars series vibes but with some new mechanics to add more wins and exciting features. I don’t think that rules out a return to the main series if the right ideas and mechanics come together.

5. Have your changes your slots due to UK regulation?

More than changing we are adapting our games to the regulations in the UK without losing anything that makes our games unique and enjoyable.

6. Have you seen a change in players’ needs/wants?

For the regulated market I feel the players want more action in the games they play, an achievable max win and clarity from the get go.

7. Do you plan to release hit frequency rates?

If players are choosing a game upon its hit rate over the fun and excitement factor, then maybe we would. But personally I do not feel that any player would choose hit rate over the fun and exciting elements to a game.

8. What is your favourite Push Gaming slot and why?

My current favourite is Big Bamboo, it has all the fun of Instant Coins like we have in Razor Shark on a bigger reel set with more lines.

About Push Gaming

Founded in 2010, Push Gaming are one of the major online slot providers. With a mobile-first approach, they have released favourites such as the Jammin’ Jar series and the ‘Fat’ series with Fat Rabbit, Fat Santa and Fat Banker.

The design of their slots is second to none with a wide range of themes and concepts on offer. Whilst they don’t release as many games as other providers, their focus is on quality. This is evident with so many of their slots becoming instant classics.
