Developed Mini-Games

Slotomania and Caesars Slots released machines with rich mini-games … a potential trend in social slots.  In Slotomania’s Macau Nights, players fill a progress bar to collect Chips to bet in a full-version Sic Bo game.  Review this section to entice both Daydreamer Denise and Sensation Serena players who desire progression and collection mechanics.

Full-Reel Mighty Cash

Jackpot Magic Slots released Big Fortune Valley, a machine with a Mighty Cash-inspired mechanic.  This variation of Lightning Link awards a multiplier (instead of a jackpot) when players fill all slots in the respins.  Consider this respins mechanic for your players who are tired of not hitting the jackpot in the Lightning Link respins.

Guaranteed Reel Multiplier

88 Fortunes Slots released Heidi’s Bier Haus.  This variation on an RMG machine has full-reel wilds and different colored Scatter symbols that alter the bonus.  Because the free spins is highly volatile, there is a guaranteed minimum-win on free spins.  This helps eliminate player frustration around low wins in free spins.  


Multi-Matrix reel formations, not typically common in the top grossing slots apps, spiked in January with seven machines (12% of total top grossing machines released for the month).

Asian and Cultural themes were very popular in January, making up 37% of the total themes released by top grossing apps.

Scientific Games’ apps Gold Fish, Jackpot Party, and Quick Hit Slots all had strong machine releases in January … above the industry average of four machines released per month.
