BILLINGS – Trying to turn the jungle into a Vegas casino floor is what might best describe what Grand Vision Gaming in Billings is doing with their business.

The bells and whistles of their games are going off throughout not only Montana but also in South Dakota, Louisiana, West Virginia and Oklahoma.

“We are competing with global companies that have tens of thousands of employees and here we are with 39 employees based out of Billings, Montana, and we are able to compete and beat most of them in our market,” said Grand Vision Gaming General Manager Ryan Hatch.

There are a lot of moving pieces that go into making a game, starting with the math. The math dictates how the game will play. The math model is what runs the game.

“You need to create a theme that is going to be attractive to the player. Something they can get right away,” said David Moore, the art department manager at Grand Vision Gaming.

From the animations, the sound effects, and building the games, everything about the games from start to finish is made in-house.

“We can react fairly quickly. We are a small company and we compete with a lot of large companies so being able to be on site in the same building allows us to make changes, adjustments and decisions quickly,” said Merle Frank, the owner of Grand Vision Gaming.

Once everything is tested through a vigorous cycle, third-party approvals and BETA testing is approved, the game is finally released to be sold and distributed into the market.
