Real Time Gaming
Real Time Gaming has a strong U.S. connection; the company was established in 1998 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The studio is still very popular with U.S. sites. The year of inception makes RTG one of the pioneering iGaming software studios in existence. As stated, RTG is also one of the rare studios to create virtual games in all casino categories.
Online gaming was a novelty in those days, and RTG soon earned a reputation for high-quality games that still endure. The games were soon popular among punters, and the studio won a number of prestigious awards in its first five years. RTG became for its ‘Real Series Slots’. These are video slots with random jackpots, and are not to be confused with standard progressive jackpots. Real Series Slots have mini and major jackpots, which are randomly awarded on any spin.
You don’t need to have a winning combination, or play with maximum stakes in order to win the jackpot. The jackpots in Real Series Slots are also progressive, but they are specific to the casinos, where they are featured. In that sense, they are local progressives. Some of RTG’s Real Series Slots include Aladdin’s Wishes, Caesar’s Empire, Ronin, Achilles, Cleopatra’s Gold, Prince of Sherwood, Rain Dance, Aztec’s Treasure, Penguin Power, Diamond Dozen, Outta This World, etc.
2006 saw the passage of the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) in the United States. The legal situation for U.S studios and casinos, which accepted players from the USA became foggy. Real Time Gaming shifted their headquarters to Heredia, Costa Rica. However, RTG chooses not get involved in the gaming legislation issues of the operators they work with. RTG-powered casinos can still offer their games to players from the USA.
