The games that we love playing are evolving. That has to be the case in a highly competitive industry. Standing still is not an option or your rivals will be getting increased profits while you hope you can stay in business.
Innovation is so important when it comes to the slots industry. Another important part of your business is to create games that will get the players talking and eager to play them. Linking up with themes that already have an audience is a good way forward. Games such as ‘Jurassic Park: Gold’ tie in with popular franchises.
The technology included in slot games has seen massive changes in recent decades. The days of playing fruit machines and getting all excited about the nudge feature are long gone. Never at that time did players imagine the number of paylines even getting into double figures, let alone the thousands.
Creating new features such as Megaways is important for slots designers. This was created by BTG and doesn’t just find itself being used for brand new games. It can be used to revamp older games that have already been very successful.
This has been the case with games such as ‘Divine Fortune’ and ‘Buffalo Rising.’ These games can now be played with as many as 117,649 ways to win. That might not be enough in the future though. New ways have to be found to produce games that have even more ways to get a win when you spin the reels.
One company that is renowned for its innovation is Evolution Gaming. They have created live casinos for some of those new gaming websites and live game shows such as ‘Deal or No Deal.’ They’ve also been busy acquiring top companies such as NetEnt and BTG, so their portfolio is getting stronger and stronger.
When that portfolio already includes games such as ‘Starburst’ and ‘Gonzo’s Quest,’ you can’t really go wrong can you? 88 new games are scheduled to be released this year, so keep an eye on what they will be releasing.
A popular way to produce a successful game is to have a movie or television related theme. It often seems that part of a big movie release is a subsequent slot game being produced. Those slots companies who can get a licensing agreement will reckon they have a hit on their hands.
For players, it’s almost like being part of a successful franchise such as Jurassic Park/World. Microgaming released ‘Jurassic Park: Gold’ this year. It features the original trilogy of movies and has the music and character symbols. The fact several of those actors are featured in the 2022 release is good news for them.
The metaverse is going to be the next big step forward for the slots industry.. Millions of pounds are being spent in ensuring that slots games of the future just take your breath away. You might feel a bit foolish wearing those VR headsets but the gameplay is going to be amazing.
The future of the slots industry looks bright. It’s all going to be great news for those of us who love to play the games. More new features, games based on our favourite television shows and movies and then the metaverse to amaze us are on their way.
