Just For The Win is an online game development company that focuses on creating top-quality pokies for the mobile and desktop online casino markets. This is the company that gave us such popular games as Emerald Gold, Icy Gems, Temple of Tut and Plenty of Presents, to name just a few of the titles released thus far. If you're familiar with any of those then you'll know that this is a provider with very high standards, and that's something that has helped its games to succeed in more than 45 countries around the world including New Zealand.

Just For The Win was founded in Sweden in 2016 by Johan Persson and Jay Sopp for the purpose of creating "great gaming content with a focus on video pokies for mobile and desktop in the free-to-play and online gambling market". The founders had plenty of previous experience in the industry, having worked with big names like LeoVegas, NetEnt and others, so they knew what was required to succeed from the outset. Their first game, Goldwyn's Fairies, was released in 2017 to great acclaim, and it is still being played today.
One of the things that Just For The Win is rightly proud of is that it focuses on quality rather than quantity. That isn't to say that it isn't also impressively productive, because the company has released more than 50 games since it was first launched. However, none of its games has been created using any kind of "cookie cutter" approach. On the contrary, each is the result of a team of talented individuals applying their diverse skills to give players as much entertainment as possible.
At the time of writing, Just For The Win is based in Stockholm, Sweden, but it also has offices in Gothenburg, Sweden. It works with scores of casinos, and just a couple of its better-known partners are LeoVegas and Casumo.
Just for the Win Games
Just For The Win has focused on online pokies from the outset, so you won't find any table, video poker or scratch games in its catalogue. That's bad news if those types of games are your favourites, but if you love online pokies you'll find plenty from this company to be happy about. Here are just a few key titles to look out for:
This was the first pokie from Just For The Win, and it was developed for release by Microgaming in 2017. It focuses on four fairies, each of which represents a different season of the year, and has a five-reel, three-row format. If you like the idea of fairies then you'll love the aesthetics of this game, but there's plenty more to enjoy than the impressive visuals. This pokie machine has three different types of wild symbols, a Re-Spin with Returning Wild feature, and a Free Spins with Returning Wild feature.
Irish-themed pokies are always popular, and Emerald Gold is one of the best around. Released in 2021, this is a highly volatile pokies that gives you a chance of winning a top prize of 25,000 times your stake. Symbols include shamrocks, pints of stout, a ring, a lucky horseshoe, various BAR signs and a 777. Land three Free Spins symbols to get three free spins that are retriggered every time you get a special scatter. Collect 12 scatters to win the top prize.
This five-reel pokie was released in 2018 and it takes you on an adventure through the Temple of Tut, which is where the famous pharaoh Tutankhamun kept his treasure. The game has a mature comic-book style and symbols include various pieces of ancient Egyptian jewellery, a Tutankhamun wild and a Temple of Tut scatter. Land 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols to win 8, 15, or 30 free spins, respectively. Super Reels are active in every free spin.
Piles of Presents
Santa's coming to town in the festive December 2022 release, Piles of Presents, just in time for the holidays. If you're a fan of Christmas pokies then this is a genre that Just for the Win does well since their 2021 release, Plenty of Presents, was also a popular holiday pokies. In Piles in Presents, Santa's back and he's not just bringing gifts for the tree, he's packing in features galore, including wilds, multipliers and a special Christmas Wheel that can land you one of FOUR different jackpots.
Mega Moolah is the most famous online progressive jackpot slot in the world. It comes in several guises, and Juicy Joker Mega Moolah is one of them. This game was released in 2021 and it has a classic Vegas video pokie vibe. Symbols include cherries, grapes, oranges, watermelons, and blue diamonds. Land three Joker jackpot symbols and you can spin the Jackpot Wheel to win the Mini, Minor, Major or even the Mega progressive jackpot.
