And they did it with flying colors. As over the years Quickspin Company had made 20 titles with nearly 45 staff, and gained a lot of trustworthy and loyal partners with also a number of players who loved their games. The main office of Quickspin is located in the center of Sweden City, Stockholm, with a light and comfortable office space.
