Only founded in 2016, Swedish online casino software developer Fantasma Games is a newbie on the scene, and has been slowly building a reputation without too much fanfare thus far.
Focusing predominantly on slot games, Fantasma only have a couple of games under their belt at this point, having put out their first title this year (2017).
It is clear that Fantasma have their eyes on big things, with their website claiming they are “determined to change how players perceive video slots” which is quite a statement for a new company. Innovation is at the heart of the online slot game industry and has been for some time, so Fantasma will be keeping big company if they are going to try and stand out for their innovations.

The first slot released by Fantasma is Super Sumo, which, to be blunt, is not exactly a demonstration of the revolutionary attitude they claim to be bringing to the table.
That isn’t to say this is a bad slot, because it certainly isn’t, as proven by the fact that it is available on Microgaming’s acclaimed Quickfire platform, resulting in Super Sumo standing alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, from some of the best developers around.
Being associated with the huge brands that are available on the Quickfire platform is a great sign for Fantasma, and Super Sumo definitely shows itself as capable of standing its ground with the big boys.
A five-reel, 25 payline slot has a very Japanese feel to it, which one would expect from a slot by the name of Super Sumo. The graphics and animations are genuinely impressive, with the reels adorned by various wrestlers.
There is a definite sense of playfulness to this slot, it’s cartoon-style graphics make it apparent that Fantasma is about having fun as well as creating excellent slot games, which is a combination that is likely to appeal to a wide range of online casino players.
Sticky wild respins, and a free spins feature that comes with the possibility of wild reels, means that there are nice wins to be picked up here, and the gameplay remains entertaining for a good length of time.
Everything is exaggerated and over the top here, which is great, but it doesn’t feel like anything particularly new.
This is a solid first effort from a new slot game developer, but not if that developer has its eyes on revolutionising the industry.
The big question when it comes to Fantasma Games is where they go from here, it could be stated that their first effort was nothing much better than okay, and there needs to be more than that.
However, we should allow a new developer to find its feet, and the relationship Fantasma has already built with Microgaming is an excellent sign, one expects good things to come from Fantasma Games in the future, but the advances necessary for this provider to be competitive may take a while to come to fruition.
