Founded in California in 2013, Asylum Labs is a small developer of online casino software, with a focus on the social gaming market.
Prioritising originality over all else, Asylum have not released a huge number of games as yet, but everything they have produced feels different to anything else you will find on the market, which can go a long way in terms of appealing to the increasingly picky online casino audience.

In order to bring something new to the table, a developer must carve out a niche for itself, which is anything but easy considering the competitive nature of the industry. However, Asylum Labs has found a way.
By focusing on the often-ignored social possibilities that iGaming creates, Asylum emphasises social networking, meaning that friends can play Asylum Games titles together, which is something that is almost never offered from online casino games.
As with most new(ish) names in the industry that have managed to make a name for themselves, Asylum Labs may only have a few years’ experience in the industry, but those behind the company have much more than that.
Four seasoned veterans of the iGaming and video games world came together to combine their skills, and create games that sit perfectly between the two genres, while creating a large community of online players who can connect and share their progress and achievements with each other.
Another thing that Asylum Labs have in common with most other successful newbies is that they offer a platform for their games to be played on.
The ArcLight Universal Platform has only been used for social networking casino games, such as those offered on Facebook, and not for real money games, yet the platform still utilises best practice in terms of random number generators and other operations, showing a dedication to fairness in all games on offer from Asylum Labs.
It is the free games offered on social media that have become the most popular Asylum Labs titles, especially Wild Party Bingo, which is a game most players who favour social networking play will be aware of by this point.
Available on Facebook and in the majority of major app stores, Wild Party Bingo offers a multiplayer, real time bingo experience offering players the chance to play alone or in a team of up to five of their friends.
Asylum Labs also offer a host of free to play slot games, but they do have a couple of real money games in their collection too, such as Congo Bongo, which is a game based around a band of musical animals playing a jungle concert.
With five reels and 50 paylines, the slot offers three different bonus games that can lead to big wins. Congo Bongo is available at William Hill, so players in the UK and around Europe can experience it for themselves.
A few more real money games wouldn’t go amiss, but in terms of social gaming, Asylum Labs are as good as it gets.
