Softswiss Game Aggregator launches crash game tournaments

| By iGB Editorial Team
New game category added to Softswiss’ Tournament Tool means crash games can now be included in tournaments alongside live games and slots.

Operators can now create mixed tournaments featuring all types of games or organise tournaments focusing on a single game type.

As more game categories join the Tournament Tool, developers have introduced specific measures to accommodate their unique mechanics. For crash games, operators now have the option to add a delay in calculating the final leaderboard. This delay helps exclude rollback bets from the results, ensuring fair and accurate tournament standings.

Crash games continue to gain popularity due to their simplicity, speed and the level of control they offer, which is often lacking in slots. These games consistently rank among the top popular titles.

Softswiss has analysed and compared player preferences in its focus regions and identified regional trends, one of which is that crash games are more popular in Latin America than in Europe. In Q2 2024, for example, Aviator, the most popular crash game, ranked in the top five games globally and in Latin America, while slots dominated the European market. The share of crash games in Latin America was 3.9% of all games in Q2, compared to less than 1% in Europe.

Softswiss’ market research in South Africa indicates that fast-paced games that offer instant gratification attract local players. Crash games’ straightforward mechanics and quick results help increase their popularity.

“We have integrated crash games into tournaments, aligning with gamification and social interaction trends,” said Tatyana Kaminskaya, head of Softswiss Game Aggregator. “Previously, crash games attracted users with their social elements. Now, any game can become social and even more engaging as players can compete in tournaments across different game categories. The combination of tournaments with crash games, live games and slots is truly winning – it enhances player experience and boosts casino performance.”

According to internal research, integrating the Tournament Tool results in an average 4.23% increase in player spending during tournaments, rising to 9.01% post-tournament (based on 36 tournaments by 10 operators).

The Softswiss team is ready to share its expertise in online casino games and more during iGB Live! on 17–18 July, stand 12-F30.
