Exclusive Q&A with Endorphina
“The most important is that the games are mathematically unique and fully understandable for any player”
Endorphina is a progressive iGaming company from the Czech Republic. Many recognise them for their unique and bold slot themes, like Taboo and Twerk, as well as novel approaches which have made their games, including Satoshi’s Secret, one of the most popular among crypto fans at slot sites around the globe. So I took an opportunity to ask their Sales Manager, Valeriya Nasypova, about the company culture, see what they’ve been up to and what’s ahead for their fans and players alike. Hope this will shed some more light on this spirited developer and their work. Hope you enjoy it!

First of all, thank you for this interview and for your time. Could you tell our readers more about Endorphina and how you develop your games?
Valeriya Nasypova (VN): We’re an innovative and fast growing company with our headquarters in the heart of Europe, Prague. When it comes to games development, we develop everything in-house, from graphics, animations to mathematics and algorithms. Our team is mixed, and we welcome everyone from different cultures, ages, and experiences which become our advantage when it comes to the creative process.
Currently our game portfolio consists of 80+ slot games, and we’re still growing by releasing at least 1 game per month. We try to meet the expectations of various players by covering different themes from traditional and old-school to those more innovative and provocative.
Endorphina slots are well-known in the crypto gaming world as many of your biggest wins have been paid out in bitcoin. How relevant is this approach today and what is your view on crypto gaming in the coming year?
VN: The hype of incorporating Bitcoin Casinos are definitely rising and becoming popular. We’ve also noticed that more players are betting with cryptos in our slots. In general, any casino’s success depends on choosing the right target market, deciding how they will operate and also treat their users. We also understand that in some markets, using crypto in casinos will not be so popular and that’s something we should keep in mind for the future.
Your games are currently licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority. Have you also looked into the UK market? Can UK players expect to see them at local online casinos in the near future?
VN: This is definitely in our plans for the future to cover UK market too; however, we’ve currently just obtained a Romanian license and will launch games for players in Romania very soon.
What would you say are your main markets right now?
VN: Our games have a very strong position in the CIS market and Central Europe, and now our goal is to expand Endorphina’s presence to regulated markets and comply with other jurisdictions. Except for our new license in Romania, in the future we’re also planning on getting our certification for Latvia and Lithuania as we strongly believe that regulation is good for business in general.
Over the past couple of years, online slots have become more complex than ever with the introduction of new mechanics like MegaWays. Endorphina seems to diverge from the trend by continuing to release online slots with the more traditional gameplay and keeping the paylines count in the classic 10s or 20s. What is the reason behind that?
VN: Many of our games have already stepped outside of the box on the unconventional path, and now have even more pay lines. Just recently, we’ve released one of our hits – the luxury classic slot – Chance Machine 100, in which the player can enjoy the game on 100 paylines. Our newest addition Buffalo 50 offers 50 paylines. And there’s another exciting option for players: the cute Little Panda slot has 1,024 payways, meaning it has 1,024 ways to win! So, I wouldn’t call our slots traditional 🙂
You have mentioned that the long-awaited jackpots are finally coming to Endorphina. When can players expect to play your very first jackpot slot? Can you give us some hints as what to expect?
VN: Well if I give you some hints, it won’t be much of a surprise anymore! 😉
I can assure you, that we have great plans for this – so our players definitely have something exciting to look forward to in the nearest future which holds loads of pleasant gifts 🙂
What is currently the biggest win potential across all your games? Do you see any trends in this direction or demand to keep pushing the maximum payout limits?
VN: Currently, in our portfolio there are few games that have a bit over 10,000x winning potential. And of course, we can see a trend in making the maximum payout limits bigger since players love high volatility games. However, there are certain limits for that and at some point, chances of high payouts become slim.
Your slots are well-known for their unique ethnic themes, like Kamchatka, Tribe, Urartu, as well as eye-catching graphics and high variance. What do you say have been the most beloved features which set apart your games from the rest?
VN: Yes, we’re trying to catch our players’ attention from the early beginning, with icons, to make them want to click on it and play the game. Graphics and sounds play a huge role in our players’ experience. But the most important is that the games are mathematically unique and fully understandable for any player. Also, we do offer a transparent bonus system and free spins to operators, which allows them to promote our games to the fullest and players to enjoy some benefits while playing Endorphina games.
Thank you for enlightening slot fans on your work. Finally, I’d like to end this interview with some practical advice. Which of your games would you recommend starting with for someone who’s new to Endorphina slots?
VN: I wouldn’t recommend any particular slot. Our portfolio is incredibly versatile, meaning we have both traditional and innovative themes, high and low volatility games mixed within both simple and complicated gameplay. This way, everyone can find a game they like for themselves.
I’d suggest any new player to try and find their lucky slot among our diverse portfolio.
