Galaxsys Q&A: On the growing demand for skill games & US expansion

Gil Soffer, SVP of Sales and Business Development at Galaxsys, speaks to Gambling Insider about the past, present and future of Galaxsys.

How have Galaxsys’ last 12 months been going?

Galaxsys was established in 2021 as a gaming studio specialising in fast and skill games, several crash games, fast table games, keno and Asian games, focusing on innovation and player engagement. Our team – which numbers 60 – are veterans in the iGaming space, committed to providing customer-centric products with the latest technologies and innovative solutions.

The focus continues to be to scale the business, and we are signing multiple agreements with tier-1 aggregators and operators. We are also in the process of expanding and therefore acquiring licences and certification in Italy, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, Colombia and other major regulated markets. Our brand vision is to be the dominant category leader of the fast and skill games segment very soon.

What new products have been the most successful in the last year?

We continue to build out our game portfolio, of which we currently provide 18 fast and skill games, crash games, fast table games, keno and Asian games. Galaxsys fast games portfolio includes a range of instant, crash, mines and Plinko games designed for players who enjoy quick winning experiences with innovation and player engagement central to the design and game ideations.

Player centricity is vital in our design and product DNA. We will continue to look for player experience gaps and today's digital player is used to multitasking and speed

Moreover, we have seen a steady but growing demand for skill games, including traditional games like dominoes and backgammon and new and innovative concepts such as Hexagon. Players need to be engaged and feel in control of the games, and skill-based games challenge the players’ strategic thinking and provide a more rounded gaming experience. As we ramp up, we expect to target 30 new fast games for the end of 2023.

What new markets are you looking at closely?

As mentioned earlier, our growth has been measured and the vision is to be the best in class. Therefore, we think globally and act locally, and are actively securing multiple jurisdictional licences and certifications to aid in that goal.

What about further US expansion?

The US is a massive market with an addressable population of over 300 million. It’s definitely on our radar for future expansion.

What are the plans going forward for the next 12 months?

Galaxsys won’t rest on our laurels. We are determined to be the best and offer our customers and its end players the best digitally complete product.We have already demonstrated our ability to bring innovation to the category with Half Cash Out functionality in the crash-type games, which continues to enhance the fast and skilled digital games category. We in Galaxsys try to revolutionise. Our recent game, Cash Show, was created in cooperation with Fashion TV Gaming Group – a fast game, and Hexagon – a well-known board game that has never been introduced to the industry, clearly illustrates our point.

Player centricity is vital in our design and product DNA. We will continue to look for player experience gaps and today’s digital player is used to multitasking and speed; and is looking for fast games that Galaxsys is uniquely positioned to offer, thanks to our experience curve and a fantastic team of creative professionals.
