“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” – Yves Saint Laurent, one of the finest fashion designers of the twentieth century

Dear Slots Designer,

This month, we see innovation in social casino based on some classic real money gaming mechanics. Hit it Rich implemented a Single Symbol Trigger in Honey Wins to turn any spin into a big win with the last reel. This is an evolution of the iconic Wheel of Fortune’s 3 x 3 bonus wheel symbol trigger. House of Fun released a machine with Single Space Reels and High 5 Casino released a machine with Scatter Pay One-Of-A-Kinds, two more machines derived from long-established real money gaming mechanics.

IP usage is still down with only three IP machines released in each of the past two months. Locked Symbols is on the rise, driven by House of Fun’s progression map reward system. And, Free Spins After a Pick ‘Em Bonus is an up-and-coming mechanic in social casino.

The Machine Deep Dives are either proven winners, innovative for social casino, or newly released in real money gaming. Caesars Slots’ Ride ‘Em Wild is a proven winner since it is a reskin of American Glamour 2. POP! Slots’ Quick Gold, with its group bonus game experience, is a new innovation for social casino, and Aristocrat’s The Walking Dead 2 is a newly released machine in real money gaming.

Create timeless mechanics.
