This stage is where your artists produce sketches and wireframes for the game, as well as produce the first iterations of important game art like characters and symbols. This isn’t the final artwork that will be used in the game, but it gives your team an idea of how the game will look to the player and can help guide the development process.
Once you have the concept for your slot, it’s time to start the actual programming of the game. This includes creating a prototype to test out the gameplay and determine whether or not it meets your design objectives. The prototype can be a simple HTML document or a fully functioning interactive website that allows users to play the game and provides feedback on any issues or bugs.
Adding features to your slot is another key part of the development process. This can include adding new reels or paylines, introducing a bonus round, or enhancing the graphics and sound to keep players interested. It’s also important to update your slot regularly. This can help boost your sales and attract more players. The more people you have playing your slot, the higher your revenue potential. To do this, you can advertise your game on YouTube, Google and TV, as well as through social media.
