Spigo on their Amazing April: The Best Month for Custom Slots

April was indeed a historic month for Spigo. The bespoke slots created by Spigo for their partners have not only proven to be extremely successful, but have also generated the best revenue in months.

The cooperation between Spigo team and their partners showed that all the hard work paid off. Having analysed April’s revenue, Sales Manager Caroline Maciel said, ''I am extremely happy and proud to see that we broke records with our bespoke slots last month. Casinos are beginning to realise that having unique games designed for their website has become increasingly important. Providing players with remarkable content these days is a must.''

Maciel went on to add, ''At Spigo, we always conduct research on what is happening in the industry. We communicate with our partners to get to know the audience they are targeting, and together we decide what the best choice is for the volatility, features, RTP and theme to make the game enjoyable for their players.”

When helping the clients decide the features and volatility of the game, games developer Kevin Nielsen said, “I take their target audience into consideration; if they are targeting a more casual market they'll want interesting features that the player can build towards, such as bonus games, counters, or flashers. If it's more of a "hard-core" market, we typically don't include a lot of features as such players just want as many spins as possible, as fast as possible, and a bonus game interrupts that flow.”

Regarding the spectacular bonus games created by Spigo, Kevin Nielsen added, ''I take the theme of the slot machine into account; the trick is to create a design that can fit the theme, for instance the sea-lion game from Zoo - but it also has to be designed in such a way that it is engaging. It’s important for the player to feel like the choices they make will matter in the outcome of the game, otherwise they'll end up feeling cheated when we really want them to think ‘I could have done better, I'll keep playing so I can try again’ when the bonus game ends.

“Here are 4 things I think are crucial for a good bonus game experience:

  1. Always award the player some prize - never let them leave the game empty-handed. 
  2. Be mindful of the duration of the game. Don't make it too short and don't make it too long. 
  3. The game should make the player feel as though they actually make choices that matter.
  4. Don't punish the player by taking anything away from them. For example, don't take away turns in the bonus game or potential prizes the player has already been shown.''

Be a Rizk-Taker!

Discover Rizk Superslot 5000

Our team at Spigo is as excited as it is proud to broadcast its collaboration with yet another game-changer within the iGaming sector: Rizk Casino. Soon-to-be-launched, bespoke slot machine – developed by Spigo – Rizk Superslot 5000 will be exclusively available on Rizk.com.

You can manually play the game by triggering symbols or counters. Try your luck with Scatters, increasing your chances at winning some awesome prizes when combined over multiple spins.

Features of the game: Scatter and Wild

The Scatter feature only appears on the first, second and fifth reel. Represented through a dog character, it’s activated when 3 of its symbols appear. You can’t change the stake for as long as the Scatter is active. The Scatter feature gives you from 15 to 50 free spins. Get 3 Scatter symbols and receive 15 free spins, which will have the same stake as when you first activated the Scatter feature. Continue activating the Scatter feature within those 15 spins and generate the maximum of 50 spins.

Generated every time the Captain symbol appears; the Wild feature can only appear on the second and fourth reel. Each time the Captain appears, it randomly changes the symbols around him… unless there’s a dog. While other symbols are transformed, the dog remains.

If the Captain appears on both reels in the same spin, all valid symbols will be swapped with a new and randomly chosen symbol. The Scatter and Wild symbols won’t be affected or chosen by this feature.

RTP and Pay Lines

Rizk Superslot 5000 has a fantastic RTP of 96%, with 20 pay lines and 5 reels. The Wildcard makes it easier to yield prizes. To better understand pay lines, simply click on pay-table to find out everything you need to know about the game’s great features.

Casual casino games developed by Spigo

Both Spigo and Rizk believe the image of a casino is often measured by its super content. Spigo’s customised slot machines create a gaming experience like no other. This can easily be seen when playing Rizk Superslots 5000. Perhaps one of the most special things about this slot, is its exclusivity to Rizk.com.

Developed by Spigo, Rizk Superslots 5000 was tailor-made to captivate players and enhance their gaming experience.

EXPLORE THE ULTIMATE CARD GAME PARADISE WITH YUKON21

Our team at Spigo is delighted to broadcast the exciting news that it will be launching yet another great game: Yukon21. A game which appeals to anyone who loves playing cards, think of Yukon21 as your classical card game with an interesting twist.

Yukon21 is a single-player game which takes place in Alaska, circa 1890, during the gold rush. Based around making tricks with a sum of 21, Aces have the value 1 or 11, while picture cards have the value of 10, and the remaining cards have their printed value.

The game is played by placing one card at a time on a card pile, if the sum of the cards in the pile reaches 21, you get a trick and the pile is cleared. However, if the sum goes above 21, you get a bust and the game is over!

To win the game you need to use all the cards in tricks or the ones placed in piles. Each time you win, you get gold dust which can be carried over from one game to the next. Once the glass is filled with gold dust, you receive a Jackpot Spin with a guaranteed fantastic prize and a chance of the big Jackpot prize! There are 3 levels, which means the game can be enjoyed by anyone – from beginner to advanced.

Perhaps the best feature of this game is the fact that the pay-out rate is between 90 and 95%. Players can think of this as fast-paced, quick-thinking card game. So, if you consider yourself as somewhat of a veteran card game player with a few tricks up your sleeve, this game is definitely for you!
