FunFair and Spike Games have entered into an industry first partnership that has seen the casino platform go live with its first third party developed game, Ocean Blaster 2, in partnership with Spike.
Ocean Blaster 2 has been adapted for the blockchain, introducing a smart-contract backend, which ensures unrivalled transparency and fairness for players.
The game brings yet another genre to FunFair’s growing range of titles, with popular fish shooting, instant win type games showing great success in East Asian markets.
The title allows players to take away cash prizes from an immersive underwater world.
Stefan Kovach, CCO at FunFair Technologies said: “With our first third-party title, we wanted to set the tone and show players that they can expect the same quality from our partners are they do from us. Spike Games has been a first class partner in making Ocean Blaster 2 a truly standout, blockchain title.
“We can’t wait to see how our community engages with it and we look forward to continuing to work with games developers to bring more high-quality titles to the FunFair platform in the near future.”
The founder of Spike Games Rob Anderson said: “Since launching in the traditional casino space, Ocean Blaster 2 has held great appeal with players looking for a fast-paced, arcade style title, and we’re sure this will carry over to the huge blockchain audience looking for the best gaming experiences.”
FunFair is a leading business-to-business blockchain casino platform provider revolutionising the online casino industry.
It is empowering a new breed of operator with a low-cost platform that allows game developers to access a new audience, with a superior user experience.

Isle of Man-based casino software developer Microgaming has announced an expansion to its global footprint, after making its debut within the Czech Republic.
A range of titles have become available through Tipsport, with a selection of further operators set to follow in due course.
Microgaming told Casino Beats that its entry into the country “continues a well-executed strategy of expansion into key regulated markets around the world.”
This latest move follows successful entries made into Colombia, Bulgaria and Denmark in 2018 and commencing operations in Sweden at the beginning of 2019.
