Habanero is a leading software and games provider based on the island of Malta. Since receiving financial backing from a consortium in 2012, it has built an impressive portfolio of online slots and table games, as well delivering an efficient iGaming platform to operators.
Part of Habanero's strategy has been to form partnerships with important operators and other gaming platforms to expand their scope and bring players innovative casino content at the same time. At the time of writing, the company has offices in several different continents, including Asia and Africa, and a large team of specialists who help ensure a consistent high-quality output of material.
By 2020, the company boasted a portfolio of well over 100 games, all of which used HTML5 technology so players could enjoy them on a variety of devices. Their titles had also featured at some leading exhibitions, such as ICE London, and several gaming ceremonies.
All Habanero games are subject to strict regulation overseen by the likes of the respected Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. They also abide by Random Number Generator (RNG) guidelines so that players can be sure all results are totally random.
Habanero aims to ensure smooth, high-quality gameplay in all its titles, regardless of the device players use. For this reason, we often see them in mobile-friendly casinos with operators confident that players won't experience any drop in quality compared to desktop versions.
Slots by Habanero tend to have a bright, jovial feel to them and many of them revolve around popular celebrations, such as Christmas and Halloween. Santa's Village is one such slot, a beautifully-designed festive affair that offers engaging gameplay and a range of bonus features. Each winning spin puts Santa closer to reaching a house – when he does, he activates free spins and even rides across the screen in his sleigh to celebrate.
Habanero are also able to showcase their dark side, however. London Hunter is a good example of this: set in Victorian England, it takes us on a curious gothic adventure as a team of hunters chase after an escaped T-Rex. The game is full of special effects that roar into life every time you hit a combo: the highlight is the free spins feature which can trigger multipliers and therefore big wins.
If it's a food-based game you're after, then Cake Valley is a fun Habanero slot that offers up tasty prizes as well as delicious-looking cake symbols. Like with most Habanero games, it's nice to look at: set on a glacial background to cheerful music. One of the main aims is to get the 'Jelly Selector' feature where coloured treats appear behind the reels – you get a certain number of free spins depending on which colour appears.
Fans of traditional casino table games will also be pleased to see that Habanero have a range of blackjack, poker and roulette titles in their collection. Titles like Joker Poker and Jacks or Better offer a colourful, if slightly dated variant, on classic card games, and the general standard of gameplay is high among them.
