We are in the certification process for Spain, Colombia, Lithuania, Romania and Sweden so from Q1 2019 on we will be able to bring our games also to this jurisdictions.
Q: What is the slot development process like from concept to design?
A: Creating a slot game inside Spinmatic takes several steps, and plenty of time as well. First of all, we have at least two weeks of brainstorming audits to get some ideas and storylines. This creative process is very important for each game we produce because it is at that point when we decide if the story, the grid, the reel sets, the features, the bonus games fit into the concept created. After that, we start with the graphics and art part. As all of our characters and backgrounds are manmade and unique specimens, it takes several weeks depending on the effort you need to take to reach the goals set for the illustrators. Meanwhile, our mathematicians calculate the parsheets and features planned for the games. Once they are ready, everything is forwarded to the Game Department where the game is breathed life. This process can take several weeks or up to 3 months. After game mechanics are installed the animators start their work on the game and bring the animations into the now nearby ready game. Unique sound FXs and title music are composed for each game separately. When this process has ended, a 4 week long Test and QA phase start. Once the game passed QA, it is brought to our Certification Company for the final compliance tests. After approximately 7 months from the idea to the final product, players can enjoy a safe and secure way of gambling. We use a base of 80 players all around the world for beta tests and for sharing their ideas about the games.
Q: Last but not least, where do you see the company positioned in the next year?
A: Our target is clearly drawn. We will place ourselves at the forefront through top quality and unique mechanics and games ideas. We are here to revolutionize the world of slots and bring more fun to our fans.
