Wildz: 2019 in review
The year 2019 was one to remember. It was the birth of Wildz on the Rootz platform. We’re immensely proud of everything that was accomplished this year, and Christmas time is normally a time for reflection. That’s why we’ve decided to look back and summarise the bumper year 2019.
In the following, we’ll chronologically present the year 2019 at Wildz, focused around some key highlights and milestones.
02.07.19 – Wildz welcomes its first customer
The first Tuesday of July 2019 will forever be a special day to everyone associated with Wildz. After months (and months) of hard work, Wildz finally opened their doors for players. Wildz is the brainchild of some of the brightest minds from the iGaming industry, who came together to develop a next-generation.
To execute their vision, the team built Rootz, a customised platform to handle everything related to running a gambling site. The dynamic and advanced utilises machine learning to deliver a unique and individual experience. The best example of this is Levelz, the mini-slot that awards Free Spins based on the individual customer’s demonstrated preferences.
The launch came with a fabulous Welcome Bonus: 100% extra up to €500 + 200 Free Spins awarded over 8 days.
Another innovative feature that attracted a lot of attention on launch is Spinback™️. The Wildz exclusive feature rewards players when they don’t win on the ultra-popular online slot Book of Dead. When a Wildz player misses on 5 consecutive game rounds on Book of Dead, they will win a free spin on Temple Tumble. Spinback’s unique gameplay made Wildz a finalist for Innovator of the Year at this year’s SBC awards in London.
10.07.19 – One million Free Spins awarded
Within the first week of opening the doors, Wildz handed out a whopping one million Free Spins. The most popular slot was Book of Dead, which still remains one of our most popular slots as 2019 is ending.
18.07.19 – Wildz welcomes Evolution Gaming
Barely a week after handing after the Free Spins milestone, Wildz lands another big moment in its short history. By adding Evolution, the number of Live games more than doubled – and the quality increased by even more.
Evolution Gaming is known as the premier Live games provider, and their games hold the highest standard in the industry.
13.10.19 – Ten million Free Spins awarded
The Free Spins train only picked up the pace at Wildz. Within three months of opening, the total number handed out already hit 10 million. That’s an impressive number at any site, and especially a new one. At least we think so.
1.11.19 – Evolution Launches an Exclusive Wildz Blackjack table
Further cementing the partnership with Evolution Gaming, we launched a Wildz-themed Blackjack table. Blackjack is among the most popular slot games in the world, while further customising the brand.
27.11.19 – Launch of first-ever Christmas campaign
The 22nd of November the first-ever Christmas promotion at Wildz was announced. The promotion, which launched on the 27th of November, allowed players to collect 800 Free Spins until Christmas.
The first 200 Free Spins were completely free for all active players, while the remaining 600 could be secured by depositing €50 weekly until Christmas. The promotion was a big hit with players, and in total, we handed out over 8 Million Free Spins during the campaign.
28.12.19 – 45 million Free Spins awarded
As the year is coming to an end, Wildz reaches another significant milestone. In less than 6 months since the launch, Wildz has handed out more than 45 million Free Spins to its players. That’s a mind-bogglingly high number, and it shows what kind of year it has been.
2020 and beyond
2019 was a fantastic year at Wildz, but it was only just the beginning. For the year 2020, we have some seriously big plans, including a “Wildz 2.0” initiative. Without revealing too much, we can say they involve more features and bigger rewards, among other things.
There might also be some big announcements for the Rootz platform in the coming months, so watch this space. We promise to regularly update our News sections with offers, bonuses and other big announcements.
For now, all that’s left to say is Happy New Year, and thank you for being with us at Wildz in 2019.
