Not to be confused with the mobile phone recycling outfit with the similar name - Mazuma - Mazooma develops online and mobile slots for casinos.
It's been around for years and has therefore built up a reputation for no-nonsense games. In fact, so good is Mazooma's pedigree that it was snapped up by Novomatic to form part of its group of companies.
The future is looking bright for Mazooma Interactive Games, it seems.
Mazooma Interactive Games was founded in 1997 just as the first online casinos were hitting the Internet. They'd be around a while producing video slots for land-based casinos, but the formation of MIG launched the firm into the virtual gaming stratosphere.
Already producing slot machines under its Astra Games Ltd parent, the whole firm was taken over by Novomatic in 2004. In turn, Astra was an asset in itself taking over rival gaming firms like fruit machine manufacturer, Bell-Fruit Games.
In 2009, Mazooma made the decision to relaunch as a digital games provider to online casinos. It had already secured a deal to supply video slots terminals to Coral on the high-street as the controversial FOBTs (Fixed Odds Betting Terminals) took hold in bookies shops up and down the UK.
Further partnerships sprung up, notably 888 in 2011, and Unibet and Sky Vegas.
While the game of Monopoly continued until 2012, the long-and-short means that Mazooma Interactive is now nestled comfortably under the Novomatic umbrella where it remains to this day.
Since the takeover, Mazooma has formed partnerships with some of the Internet's leading online casinos. William Hill and PaddyPowerGames now join Unibet, Sky Vegas and Ladbrokes in carrying MIG products in one form or another.
Licensed in Alderney and the UK, more recently Mazooma has put focus on their social gaming aspect. The 'Community Gaming' angle, where players can chat to one another, is in evidence at sites like Sky Vegas, which carries over a dozen Mazooma games at the moment.
In terms of popular online slots, they probably don't come much more recognisable than Cops 'N Robbers. It was the game that really launched Mazooma as an entity in high-street bookies and it made a smooth journey into online and mobile formats.
A classic-style slot with five reels and 20 paylines, the graphics might not be anything to write home about but the gameplay and bonuses make up for that.
This is where the 'Community' angle comes in. At casinos that carry Community Cops 'N Robbers, you can chat to other players in the chatbox and win special community prizes when ANY player in the lobby triggers a special bonus.
Additional 'Community' games reside at select casinos. Games like Community Toss the Monkey features a Scatter pay that awards a 10x bonus on the player's stake. In addition, a 'community' 'Toss the Monkey' feature where a gorilla has to throw the monkey, discus-style, as far as he can. The further he throws, the more cash the community of players in the lobby wins.
Mazooma has one or two popular progressive slots, notably Wizard of Odds which has been responsible for some six-figure payouts during its lifetime. It started off life as a big-time land-based slot in the UK but has made a seamless transition to online casinos. As with many Mazooma slots, Wizard of Odds also has a free spins bonus feature as standard.
As well as a small, if solid, online portfolio, Mazooma also produces decent mobile games like Gemstone Jackpot and Diamonds of Fortune.
In addition to slots, Mazooma also produces online content for bingo sites (producing Lucky Lotto exclusively for Paddy Power) and its own version of online roulette - Double Action. The enhanced version of the classic table game can reward payouts of up to 1,200-1.
Another interesting variant of roulette - Zodiac Roulette - featuring signs of the zodiac instead of the numbers 1-36 is also a popular mini-casino favourite among real-money players.
