Sergey Logvynenko, Account Manager at Sigma Software
You know, I was not familiar with the world when slot machine games were only physical 3-reel mechanical machines. Actually to be honest, I do because I remember when I was a kid my father let me play one round on a one-armed bandit which was just installed in a shopping center nearby. But that was only a single case and I was not exposed to slot games until about 30 years later.
The next time I came into contact with the world of slot games was in 2008 when we started a Casino project with Boss Media company. The world of slots had changed a lot – there were mostly 5-reel games with 1, 3 or 5 fixed win lines and more importantly they were video slots for online casinos. Quite quickly they progressed to 20, 40 or more win lines and more possibilities for a player to change the number of win lines. This was rather an evolution and not a revolution.
When we started working with Play’n GO, I became aware of more evolutions in slot games such as “ways” instead of win lines (in the Sweet 27 game) and grid slots which are now called cascade slots (Reactoonz). For me it was a big step because it opened a lot of new possibilities to represent win combinations and to play slot games which originally were very simple in a nutshell.
In recent years it seems the most significant added mechanics were in Megaways from Big Time Gaming. They really affected slot production and a lot of companies created megaway games. Even whole casinos were created with only megaways slots. It really meant something. Big Time Gaming was trying to surprise the world with Megaclusters on the wave of Megaways success, but it did not have that success.
Were Megaways really so significant? I would say yes and here are at least a couple of reasons why:
I am sure there are many more examples of using the ideas of Megaways to bring something new to slot games which supports the evolution of the slot world. This, as well as personalized jackpots, help to evolve casinos. 
At the same time, all these recent evolutions only make small steps in changing slot games and do not bring something really significant, something that will change the game itself or the ways they are played. But the more interesting questions are: what will revolutionize slots? And what will change this world of slot machines?
If we talk about the world of casino games, there is a tendency to bring more attention to table games, especially with games in the newer markets of Asia, Africa and South America. And of course live-dealer games. But that is about table games and not about slots. 
In the slot world it is calm, like in the ocean before the storm and something must happen. Maybe SharedPlay with their “play-to-play” model will change the world. Maybe elements of social gaming will be added into slots or even create hyper casual slots. Maybe something else…
What do you think?

(“IDX”), Asia’s leading supplier of ETG Display Control Systems and Advanced Table Trend Board Solutions. According to the signed agreement, APE has been appointed as the distributor of IDX to sell their products, including X Stadium, X Trend, X Table Management Dashboard, and more, in Macau and The Philippines.
IDX launched as a new brand in 2019, dedicated to casino technology and equipment. IDX is committed to creating comprehensive intelligent gaming solutions and innovative products for the gaming industry in the Asian market. Particularly, the creative X Stadium, IDX’s flagship product, is an advanced display and show control system designed for the ETG Stadium on the casino floor. Recognizing the increasing market’s attention to the development of smart tables and digitalized gaming equipment in the gaming industry of Macau and Southeast Asia, APE decided to cooperate with IDX to bring the most advanced products to the casino floor and create a brand-new gaming experience for the players.
Peter Johns, Chief Commercial Officer of IDX Games and IDX Macau, stated, “We are pleased to announce our partnership with APE, a renowned company in Macau known for its cutting-edge gaming products and exceptional service.

Evoplay, the award-winning game development studio, has diversified its instant games portfolio with Cursed Castle, a fantasy-themed release that offers simple yet engaging gameplay.
The title invites players to take on the role of the commander of the royal cannon, taking aim at a fortified tower. The cannon can either be shot at random or targeted at a selected position on the castle. Watching over the castle is a vigilant wizard who can block cannonballs and reset the multiplier back to zero.
With every precise hit, a multiplier reward is awarded, beginning at 2x and increasing incrementally until the maximum win is reached or if players cash out.
Adding extra excitement, a Critical Strike can land at random, immediately granting players the maximum win of 32x.
Marking a departure from similar sports-themed releases such as B-Ball Blitz and Hockey Shootout, Evoplay’s newest instant game reaffirms its dedication to evolving its portfolio across various verticals.
Ivan Kravchuk, CEO at Evoplay, said: “Cursed Castle immerses players in a fantasy world, where they can gain multiplier rewards by striking down the wizard’s tower. Adding more thrills than before, players can land a Critical Strike, offering the chance for the maximum win from a single shot.
“Diversifying the accessible yet entertaining gameplay found in our instant games with fresh themes and settings will capture new audiences. By incorporating a popular fantasy theme, Cursed Castle is poised to become another standout addition in Evoplay’s portfolio.”
