An Expert in his Field

When Ashley was asked about how to make online slots irresistible he had some interesting comments to say: “It’s a very big market with a lot of different people looking for a lot of different things, hence there are a lot of different approaches you can take. So for instance, let's say, familiarity. It’s a very key concept of slot design. You look at all those great branded slots everyone’s rolling out from Universal, Marvel, etc. It’s obviously key to that being a success, the familiarity a player’s got” He then added to that by saying “I’d love to go play Superman because I know Superman as against this melon that I don’t really know at all. So just from a design perspective, getting familiarity is key”

Sykes then made a very interesting comment about Candy Crush. For those of you that don’t know of Candy Crush, it is a very popular game available on iOS and Android Devices. “Familiarity actually comes within your own brand as a games developer or leveraging others. We all love Candy Crush, you’d be amazing at how many Candy Crush slots there are out there right now."
