Initially, slot games were introduced to casinos as something to occupy women and wives, while their boyfriends and husbands gambled on the tables. Over the years, slots games have attracted a following and continue to expand their audience, especially with the emergence of the internet and advancements in technology. This has been underlined by the numbers; in the 1970s slots revenue made up 50% or less of casino takings; however, nowadays slots make up 70% to 80% casino revenues. As a result, the gaming industry heavily invests in making sure that operators and players enjoy only the best of breed in terms of innovation, design and features.

For anyone looking to create and design an online slot game, they may think it is quite a simple process. After all, one can argue the game consists of an RNG which runs through billions of numbers at all times; and is stopped as and when a player hits the spin button; whilst the graphics, music, features and mini games are just addons that make the game a bit more enticing. However, as the years have gone by, all these additional features have grown in importance; especially when accounting for the sheer volume of games, players and operators have to choose from.

As a result, game development companies will now hire the most innovative teams considering how to incorporate the latest graphics, animations, sounds, payout volatility, mini-games, multi-paylines, multi-level bonus features, and of course, unique yet appealing themes in the game development lifecycle. This has become the norm in order to maximise the chance of every slot game becoming a hit with their target audience.

Intouch Games is a perfect example of a company that has managed to excel and evolve into a dominant force in the eGaming industry. The company was established in 2001 as a slot machine and jukebox manufacturer, and in 2006 managed to develop a mobile phone casino platform. This technology was a huge success and led to launch of mFortune in 2007. Intouch Games has gone on to become very successful, win several awards and continue to create some of the best games ever seen.

mFortune’s mobile casino has become one of the leading gaming brands in the business. Their service is renowned for its’ quality, exclusive casino games and custom slot machines, which are all developed by Intouch Games.

It is only then that players can fully understand the various elements that make up the design and functionality of a game, as well as the fine balance that needs to be achieved for the perfect game play.

In fact, game developers are even incorporating psychology into the design aspects; in order to ensure game enthusiasts have the perfect gaming experience. Therefore, together with the non-stop advances in technology, it seems that online slots games are destined to become ever more alluring and attractive to all players worldwide.
