Over the last 12 months, DoubleU Casino has released almost twice as many machines with respins as the next closest app.

Although total new releases with respins have held relatively steady for the last year, the number of tracked apps with respin releases has increased from 6 in January 2020 to 12 in both April and May.

Cash Frenzy, DoubleDown, and House of Fun all released machines with locking cash zone reel improvements in May.

So far in 2020, tracked apps have released 50% more machines with reel improvements—like cash zones, frames, and pattern pay jackpots—than during the same period in 2019.
