Spin the Reels
Spin Games create products for both land-based and online markets, with a focus on games, platform technology, on-property mobile and gaming entertainment.
The company has a wealth of experience within these areas, coupled with an impressive intellectual property portfolio. This property includes The ROC Robust Online Client (RGS) and MIG (Multiplayer Interactive Gaming) among other cherished brands and gaming concepts. Spin products are designed to work ‘out the box’, be it a turnkey package for established or new online casino sites, or a high performance game.
Can You Smell What the Roc Is Cooking?
At the heart of Spin’s gaming endeavours is the ROC. The firm’s Robust Online Client is supposedly the future of online gaming, and it’s got some impressive credentials to back up these bold claims. Essentially, the ROC is a remote gaming server and for-wager game content delivery system.
The ROC development console is a state of the art piece of kit that supports HTML5 game engines. This is a trend that is becoming increasingly prevalent in the gaming industry as software houses move away from Flash-based multimedia.
HTML5 games are of course ideal for mobile, and this is where Spin believes its future – and indeed the future of the industry as a whole – lies. The company is constantly trying to push the limits of what can be done with current browser and hardware technology, and the ROC is at the centre of it all.
The proprietary remote gaming server promises a plug and play dynamic and the ability to host customised content, tournaments and peer to peer product systems.
With seamless integration into third-party APIs, the ROC is compatible with online casino operators’ backend systems. This ensures that players can move seamlessly from Spin Games slots to those from other developers, such as Gameplay Interactive slots, or Betixon slots, for example. Extensive logging, reporting and security functionality, support for multiple game engines and modular architecture are just some of the features that make the ROC one of the best gaming platforms on the market.
Multi-Player Interactive Gaming
The ROC isn’t the only proprietary tool Spin have to shout about. MIG (Multi-Player Interactive Gaming) is a powerful piece of software that allows plays to engage in community-based games on their mobiles, either for the purposes of wagering, tournaments or social gaming.
Thanks to MIG, players can share a main display and join in the same game, be it Spin’s MIG-compatible Texas Hold ‘Em Poker, All Star Black Jack or Double Dragon Baccarat. MIG means, for example, that a group of mates can simulate playing poker at the same table in a casino, only instead of chips and felt the action is unfolding with pixels and handheld devices.
There’s the main screen in the room – it could be a television, monitor or PC screen – that serves as the communal poker table, and then there’s each player’s mobile, where they can view their cards before deciding which ones to keep or cast onto the communal table. MIG makes all this possible.
Special Features That Will Turn Heads
Speaking of proprietary technologies, Spin Games aren’t done. They also have 3ML3 – 3D HTML5 Gaming – also known as ML3 or Multi Layered 3D. What does all this mean? In plain English, it’s a technology that gives HTML5 games an unprecedented field of depth. The illusion, which is generated on screen in real time, is uncanny. Thanks to 3ML3, Spin Games can generate 3D slot games within the browser without requiring the installation of any special software.
Best of all, the technology’s lightweight design makes it ideal for playing on mobile devices, resulting in a gaming experience that is about as lifelike as is realistically possible when playing on a small screen, or indeed any size of screen for that matter.
The final nifty bit of tech Spin possess is a pair of special feature sets that surface in their casino games. The first of these is called Gambler’s Multiplier which kicks in any time a win of 10 or more credits has occurred in a game and is activated at the choice of the player.
The feature, which involves a classic high-low gamble involving a deck of 52 playing cards, gives players the opportunity to increase their winnings or stick with what they’ve got and resume the main game.
Wheel Power is another bonus multiplier whose concept involves two wheels, with multipliers spinning on the first reel and awards on the second. It’s another way for players to chance their luck in an attempt to increase their winnings.
Spin Games in Action
Spin’s games can be divided into four categories: slots, video poker royale, action bingo and keno. The slots are characterised by warm colours – lots of reds, golds and purples – and themes that hark back to heroes, seductresses and explorers from the golden age of global discovery. Liberty, American Gold Rush and Triple Bombshell all accord to this formula.
Many of their slots feature a 3 x 5 layout with mystery column wild symbols, free spins and a feature game multiplier. Other noteworthy Spin Games titles include Shadows of Olympus which is an online slot themed around Ancient Greek mythology, Wild Gypsy and Fire Dragon. When it comes to video poker, players can choose from such variants as Double Regal Poker, Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better. Action bingo comprises four titles: Empire Action, Fire Ball Action, Mega Ball Action and Deluxe Action. Lest that wasn’t enough action to be had, there’s Ancient Thunder Keno, which is based on a standard Keno game with a range of multipliers and bonuses thrown in, and Jungle Spot Keno which boasts a 20 number draw and multiplied bonus games.
But wait, there’s more: Spin Games also offer Last Blast Keno, Tropical Vacation Keno, Prairie Thunder Keno and Luck of The Bonus Keno.
Spin Games’ slots and other casino games are slick, colourful and fun to play, even if they’re not the most unorthodox of titles. Aesthetically, Spin are breaking no new ground, but behind the scenes the firm are working wonders thanks to their proprietary technologies that make mobile and multi-player gaming a rich and enjoyable experience that’s unlike anything else currently on the market.
The depth of field and speed of Spin’s mobile gaming, aided by its commitment to HTML5 and powered by proprietary technologies such as the ROC and MIG, have earmarked the gaming titans as one to watch. Under their stewardship, the future of online gaming is looking very bright indeed.
