Online gaming technology provider Genii has launched Spin16, a new slots product line that allows players to interact directly with the reels, spinning any reel in any direction rather than just pressing a single spin button.
The company claims that its Spin 16 patented technology represents a major change in the way video slots are played – it leverages the full area of touchscreen devices and the ubiquitous swipe action, allowing players to swipe up, down, left and right to produce a far more interactive and engaging slots experience.
Nick Barr, Genii sales director, said Thursday:
“There has been very little true innovation in slots over the past few decades. Yes, the graphics look nicer, but the way they are played hasn’t really changed. Spin16 is a truly unique slots concept which is built for today’s devices.
“The games are still very much video slots – they retain enough similarity to the recognised format for easy player transition, but also feel new and improved.”
Barr says that the multi-directional spin is not just a cosmetic feature but has a real effect on the game outcome. The second phase match game results in multiplier bonuses on any pay-line wins for matching the house pick, which adds an extra layer of excitement on every spin.
There is also a ‘spin cold’ and ‘spin hot’ feature where players can choose to follow the direction which is currently the coldest or hottest based on live results from other players online at the time.
Spin16 games are supported on Windows, Apple and Android platforms and are available on desktop, tablet and mobile.
Genii is licensed in the UK and Malta and boasts a games portfolio of over 130 multichannel games.
