Ingenuity has come a long way since its beginnings in 2005. Originally set up with a team of 10 individuals to focus on creating games for land-based casinos, we are today a multi-channel game developer and studio with over 200 people.
A key driver for change came with the digital revolution, which dramatically altered the gaming space. Games were no longer restricted to the confines of a gaming floor but available in both the private and public spaces via smart phones, desktops and tablets.
The creation of this new gaming space lead to an exponential growth in the industry but also brought with it various challenges associated with technology -security, loading, compliance and quality.
As a company, we took on the challenge to understand this new space and through constant innovation and learning were able to successfully engineer games across multiple channels, conforming to the strictest regulatory compliance.
Now into our 10th year, Ingenuity has established itself at being at the forefront of change and has become a trusted partner for some of the major gaming companies in the world, developing a significant percentage of games going live each year across most online and mobile gaming platforms.
We like to be at the forefront of change and maintain a constant stream of communication with our peers and partners. Industry events provide a perfect platform for the convergence of information, people and relationships, enabling us to both share and learn.
In 2015 we did a lot of traveling but 2016 looks busier than ever. At the start of the year we will be participating at ICE in London (2nd-4th February). This will be followed by team visits to London again in March, Telaviv in April and South Africa in May.In the second half of the year we will be at G2E in Las Vegas and for EIG in Berlin.
We are today able to provide game integration across all major platforms, server side integration, game design by leading mathematicians, regulatory testing in key jurisdictions as well as multi-lingual support across all major languages.
