Terms & Conditions Let us now proceed to the main part of the interview, which goes as follows:
#1. How did the team come up with such a name? It sounds rather exotic.
It’s a long story! The idea of creating a new brand came up last year. The concept was clear and we just needed a layout. After spending a few nights during 2015 summer we decided we wanted something exotic. We thought on a Japanese theme, a Silk Road casino etc. After a few months the concept kept changing. We wanted a Japanese name so we decided to call it IKIBU. The domain was free and it sounded beautiful. That’s it!
#2. What makes Ikibu unique? Why should any online casino player try out this new brand?
The industry is changing. Everything is getting a new dimension and that’s what we believe in. There are so many online casinos and 99% of them have the same games, same promotions, same layout etc. It was time to change. We’ve seen in the last year a few brands trying to incorporate the gamification concept. What we’ve done is getting everything to a new level, with a journey map, with a shop. Players are independent, they don’t need the casino launching new promotions everyday because they are able to buy their own.
#3. Please explain a bit about seeds, how to get them and where they can be used?
The whole new concept is based on seeds. In the IKIBU story, seeds are either planted to feed the ikki tribes or traded for gifts. In the casino gameplay, you start with 5000 seeds. First levels are easy. You either play them or accumulate them by getting to the next village (level). The more you wager and the more time you spend, the faster you get to the next level. The more spins you buy, the more seeds you get in the upcoming villages. There are a lot of different parameters involved and that’s why it’s all about strategy. Choosing the spin value is also something special. 20 Free spins of 1€ value can hit a great win!
#4. New Casinos notices that Ikibu has many great promotions. What can VIPs and recurring players expect?
Apart from higher amount of seeds, they will get dedicated account manager, trips, prizes, cash back offers, no deposit and withdrawal fees, plus much more!
#5. There is an impressive amount of developers making games to this new casino. Does Ikibu have any plans of adding new game developers in the near future?
We are currently trying to get Quickspin on board, and many more should come soon. Actually as we speak we just added Sidecity gaming to our portfolio, so it is will be increasing all the time.
Slots are the most popular ones, mainly the classics such as Gonzo’s Quest, Immortal Romance, Dead or Alive as well as the Thunderkick games like Esqueleto Explosivo, Babushkas and Toki Time.
#7. The graphics and adventure reminds about another casino. How does Ikibu differ from Casino Heroes?
Well I would not say graphics are similar at all, we have had 3 artists working for nearly a year in our graphics, I would be confident they are pretty unique. As for a similar theme and location, that is the maximum that we could be close to them. Our game play is unique our loyalty scheme is unique and the adventure is unique.
This is just the start. We have scheduled expansions for the next months. The gamification features have just started. There is much more to come. Maybe new territories… Who knows!
