Project Games profile
Project were formed in 1979 and principally design lo-tech fruit machines, however they have dabbled with hi-tech in the past, with a fantastic effort that was Balls of Steel. This hi-tech effort was never followed on, instead they chose to pursue the easier end of the market, supplying mainly bingo halls and amusement arcades. Many of their £70 jackpot machines are based on initial ideas from the USA, with a licensing agreement with Bally's.
They have failed to make much of an impact to the £500 jackpot sector, due mainly to creating low quality non random video slots. They do however have a small but loyal following of players, especially in motorway services. The graphics on their £500 machines has never been comparable to their rivals, and the fact that they have never created a random £500 machine is surprising. The non-random aspect seems to point to an inability to create a playable random machine, with the print stating the machine is compensated being as tiny as possible, which is quite the opposite to the over sized fonts used by other companies to promote their randomness.
So what are the good points to their range of £500 machines? Well there aren't any, but there are many negatives, from incomprehensible win-lines, flat playing profiles, up to unobtainable jackpots. The list of bad points is pretty extensive, and unnecessarily so.
