7 essential tips for a killer slot game
Updated: Jul 17
Are you a game developer looking to create a successful slot game? Look no further!
Here are seven tips to make your game a hit with players:
1. Paying and Non-Paying Users:
Let’s put it this way - when it comes to social casino apps, the usual way of doing business is to rely on in-app purchases (IAPs). This means that the main goal is to get users to pay for stuff while they're playing the game.
However, it's important to remember that not all users will be paying customers, so you need to create an environment that allows all (paying and non-paying) users to play and enjoy your game. This is because high daily active users (DAU) are essential if you want your app to show up at the top of the search results for its category. So don't have users sign out or force them to pay after a short session.
2. User Relationships:
Establishing relationships between users can affect their in-app behavior, making your game a success. A neat trick you can use to get non-paying users to indirectly help you make money is adding a feature where a user’s loss is actually another user’s win.
By doing this, you’ll be able to tempt both the non-paying and paying users to buy more coins to keep playing.Tournaments, donations, and playing against friends are other fun ways to get non-paying users involved and potentially turn them into paying customers.
3. Tell a Story - Add Another Layer of Progress:
Users can get bored easily, so it's important to add a story to your game to keep them engaged. By creating a map to follow, a puzzle to uncover, or a box to unlock, users will feel a sense of progress in the game. Let them know where they stand in their quests by using pop-ups to show them their progress.
4. Embrace Your Users - Community Importance:
Creating a sense of community is important for user loyalty. Retarget them on social media and make them feel like they’re part of a family. Greet them for birthdays, big wins, and reward them with free coins. Make them feel appreciated.
5. New Features:
Regularly adding new features to your game is also important to keep users engaged. Make sure they are not just the same features with different themes. Try adding mini-games in between levels to also provide secondary excitement and keep users coming back.
6. Offline and Push Notifications:
Try adding push notifications to your game plan to bring players back to the game even when they're not playing. You can create features in the game that penalize players for staying away too long, like losing their precious rank points. This will encourage players to return and get excited about the game all over again.
Creating events like tournaments where users can play with friends, are important for good user engagement. Have short-term and long-term events to keep users engaged. Also make sure users have opportunities to retry events if they fail.
All in all, the most important thing is to create a product that users love. If you're not sure where to start, contact Single Dream Media (SDM) for help. We can help you make sure your game is up to snuff with industry norms.
