“Do not merely practice your art, but force your way into its secrets” Ludwig van Beethoven

Dear Slots Designer,

One cannot merely practice the art of slots design to create the best machines. We must develop a deep understanding of how machines entertain and charm slots players.

Look closely at four new developments this month: Big Fish Casino’s Angle Pay and Interactive Bonus Game within the RMG machine Crazy Money Deluxe; Goldfish Casino’s Hot Zone that adds anticipation to more spins; and, Caesars Slots’ More More Buffalo!, eight reel sets during the bonus.

In August, IP-themed machines rebounded with five IP-themed machines released in Featured Apps, and two more in non-Featured Apps. Mini-steppers and wheels that spin to select other bonuses are on the rise—consider both mechanics for your next premium machine. See Market Trends for details.

The Deep Dives deconstruct four RMG machines: Incredible Technologies’ Crazy Money Deluxe (released in Big Fish Casino), Scientific Games’ Kooza Cirque Du Soleil (released in Jackpot Party), IGT’s Cleopatra Plus, and Barcrest’s Hercules High & Mighty.

Learn the secrets of your art.
