Tell us a bit about yourself. Who are you and what is your role at HungryBear?

I am Justin Chamberlain and I am the founder and CEO of Hungrybear Gaming.

How did you first start in the gambling industry? What were the initial challenges?

I have been in the gaming industry for 20 years, predominantly on the supply side, and have founded and led several start-ups. My most recent prior to HB was CORE Gaming, which I successfully built and led to an eventual acquisition by Sky Betting & Gaming in 2016. The initial challenges when I first started were building connections, trust, and reputation. I have never been short of original ideas but operators and platform partners to support those ideas and visions early on was a challenge.

With so many game studios on the market, what do you think is the biggest differentiator for HungryBear?

Our proprietary, multiplayer sensation – Slot Masters!

Slot Masters is a first of its kind in the industry allowing players to go head-to-head, real time, in an industry first multiplayer slot, competing for Cash, Free spins, Free bets, and prizes. No other supplier in the industry can boast of such innovation in the marketplace, and Slot Masters is now in incredibly high demand across a saturated market where standing out has become near impossible.

Slot Masters is now deployed to and being utilized by a significant number of Tier 1 UK operators as their lead acquisition, retention, engagement and marketing tool.

Can you please tell us what is the slot with the Biggest Wins from HungryBear? We are sure our readers would like to give it a spin, if they haven’t already.

Slot Masters is the game to play right now as it offers a one of a kind player experience in the 3 way head-to-head game mechanic. Play one slot against 2 rivals, steal their points, bomb them, freeze them, all in an effort to take the spoils from the game and top the leaderboard to win incredible prizes.

Players can access and play Slot Masters for FREE at any of the following casinos: Virgin Games, Jackpot Joy, Rainbow Riches Casino, Megaways casino, Foxy Bingo, Ladbrokes.

What are your top 3 favorite slots from HungryBear? Can you please tell us the reasons behind your choices?

We also develop ‘standard’ single player slots for the general market, and we have recently launched some incredibly successful titles on the Gamesys estate in the UK.

Top of the pile here, and my personal favorite due to how much I’m winning from it, is our hugely successful title: Big River Fishing, a whopper of a game with huge pay-out potential in the base game, and a FREE SPIN bonus with cash collector. This game is currently sitting as the No3 title across the Gamesys estate for Dec and Jan, and is really hitting home with the players.

Close behind that is our latest medieval themed game: King Kerching, with its random base game modifiers, FREE Spins round, and randomly awarded jackpot system, this is a must play for any slots fan.

What is the most important aspect of a slot from your perspective?

Math profile most definitely! It’s got to feel right, find that perfect balance between providing entertainment, fun, engagement, and at the same time have real enormous potential. I am a firm believer that players gauge a new slot on the first 50 plays, and if it doesn’t land and tick those boxes then they abandon and rarely return.

Is there any way to predict if a slot is going to be a hit or not?

Haha, it certainly feels that way, and in fact that for me is what a really good slot makes you feel! Some of the best games in our portfolio, and the industry, I convince myself you get a feel for when its playing well and going to pay-out. It’s part of the gambler’s fallacy though of course, the results are randomly generated, and highly regulated, so no, there is no way to tell.

Looking to the future, what is the next big release HungryBear is planning?

Our next biggest release this year is our REAL Money version of Slot Masters. Q2 will see the release of this ground breaking product in regulated markets to our portfolio of Tier 1 operators.

With Slot Masters we are changing the industry, REAL Money is the next milestone in this journey of distribution for Hungrybear.

Do you have any advice for those who would like to work in the gambling/ e-gaming industry?

Go for it! It’s a great industry, rewarding, friendly, fun, engaging, challenging, and ultimately rewarding.

If you weren’t in the gambling industry, what other industry would you want to work in?

After this journey is over I am going into the movie business!

Is there anything you would like to transmit to those who support HungryBear, before we say goodbye?

Thank you, genuinely and sincerely to all of my friends across the industry who have supported me over the years, assisted me, thrown me a few crumbs in the early days, helped keep me going through some really tough years, and who have stood by me and supported all of my crazy game and business ideas! Hungrybear wouldn’t be possible at all without those people.
