“If you decide that you’re going to do only the things you know are going to work, you’re going to leave a lot of opportunity on the table.” – Jeff Bezos

A strong roadmap is like a strong financial portfolio; investments must include both high risk, high potential and low risk, low potential assets.

The New Innovations section recommends features with higher potential value, including the Referral Program released by Wizard of Oz. This new technique drives valuable viral installs. Other New Innovations include Slotomania’s Difficulty Options on a new SlotoQuest, Caesars Slots’ improvements to Boosts, and Bingo Pop’s Crop Mechanics.

For more predictable features, the Market Watch section examines mechanics more thoroughly vetted by other games, like Big Fish Casino’s Club Tournament Brackets, an add-on to clubs, and myVEGAS Slots’ Thunder Cash, a collection mechanic.

Our Economy Teardown this month looks at Xtreme Slots. This game has sustained a top 50 grossing social casino rank and entered into the top 40 grossing in the past 12 months.

Build in a few riskier, high payout features, while maintaining your predictable mechanics.
