B3W first established back in 1998 with their primary base of operation located in Malta, B3W is considered to be one of the veteran developers in the industry. The B3W Group, unfortunately, doesn’t have an extensive portfolio of clients licensing their software due to the company focusing towards the creation of innovative turnkey solutions and designing games that cater to unique tastes. They hold a Class 1, and 4 Gambling Licence from the Maltese Lotteries and Gaming Authority and to date have created over 160 games, most of which have begun to switch to mobile compatible.
From its early beginnings, B3W has been able to grow to become one of the more known operators. The portfolio is small compared to Microgaming’s, Playtech’s, NetEnt’s. However, their games are popular in multiple markets throughout the world. The lack of clients licensing the software has resulted in a gray area where new games are not often released, but this again relates to their focus being solution based versus game creation.
All games have built in security firewalls, and random number generators are built into the slots, ensuring fairness for players. This is further supported by regular audits occur for these games by the Malta LGA. The most recent enhancement was the introduction of SSL-Encryption Coding. This provides another layer of security to the games, and as such B3W has not had any legal issues.
The graphics behind B3W’s portfolio aren’t bad, but when compared to the likes of NetEnt or Microgaming, the graphics compare poorly. The lack of new games being designed and purchase of new software from B3W’s development staff has seen their games fail to meet typical standards today. None the less, there are still 162 games that are available. Unfortunately, updates occur rarely on these games, and this is one of the least appealing factors to the software. There is an abundance of video slots in this portfolio, but there’s a lack of table games, specialty games, lottery games and video poker. This software has much to accomplish before it can compete at a level with the likes of NetEntor Microgaming.
