There are at least 2,000 registered online casinos as of 2022, and in each of those casinos, there are hundreds if not thousands of games of all the possible themes, which leaves you with countless titles to choose from for your online casino.
This begs the question, ‘What makes a great online casino game?’.
Evoplay knows a little about making innovative and award-winning titles as we proudly brought home the title ‘Game Provider of the Year’ in the 2022 SiGMA Europe awards. So to elaborate further, we will use one of our newest and most favoured titles, Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy, to break down all the elements that make up an awesome game.
Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy is a Video Slot, and video slots are usually quite popular among casino players as they have an additional layer of multimedia, such as animations, sound effects, thematic graphics, and even levels you can pass, such as earning free spins once you get past a certain level which we have in The Greatest Catch.
Mega Greatest Catch was in our top 3 performers for 3 months straight in all of Evoplay’s portfolio. It was specifically created to resemble a fishing trip. Fishing and gambling actually have quite a few similarities which make fishing-themed online slots even more popular;
- You easily forget time and as both are relaxing and exciting at the same time.
- Near victories, such as a symbol on a reel being one space off from a jackpot, or the sensation of a fish faintly tugging on the fishing line, motivate you to keep playing/fishing.
- The few significant triumphs stand out, whereas the many failures are forgotten quickly.
In the online casino industry, everything is down to chance… but one thing – Game Creation. The thought and process that goes into making award-winning titles are all but a fluke. For Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy, we took into account some statistics that state that 70% of online gamblers are between the ages of 18 and 39, with 47% of them aged 20-29 and with 82.4% of them male. A Fishing-themed online slot seemed perfect to cover the older male target audience. Here is what our CEO had to say about Fishing-themed slots and why they are so popular.
The Greatest Catch Stats
The Greatest Catch turned out to be so popular among casino players that we decided to create 3 more versions;
Adding a Bonus Buy version of the game adds excitement for the player as they are now able to buy free spins to increase their chances of winning.
Mega Greatest Catch differs from The Greatest catch in the number of paylines it has. Mega Greatest Catch has 5×4 paylines, one more payline than The Greatest Catch, meaning that there will be more frequent winning combinations.
Having that extra payline as well as the Bonus Buy feature, makes this game the best out of all the previous releases. Adding to the fun and excitement with frequent wins.
From the statistics above you can see that we compared the original The Greatest Catch Title against Mega Greatest Catch and saw insane percentage increase in GFR, Slot Count and Bet Sum. Because we saw such a promising increase, we compared Bonus Buy version and the increase was even more impactful! Which told us that we were on the right track to making exciting and popular titles.
The Greatest Catch Breakdown
The games all feature high-quality graphics that are meticulously crafted to look like a fishing trip. After all, if a game is not aesthetically pleasing to look at, players are not going to play, as with gaming titles; it is all about judging a book by its’ cover. This game is irresistible with its vibrant colours, fluid water animations, and soothing sound effects.
Gamification features are something that Evoplay puts a lot of hard work into. The Greatest Catch Series contain multiple fascinating features such as the;
- Scatter Symbol
- Wild and Extra Free Spins
- Fishing Feature
- Dynamite Feature
- Bonus Buy Feature (in Bonus Buy game versions)
By incorporating game elements such as the Scatter Symbol, which can multiply a player’s bet by as much as 10,000x, we’ve upped the ante and made these fishing slots a lot more exciting.
The user interface is of paramount importance when it comes to digital products, especially online casino games. While the visuals of a game may be appealing at first glance, the experience may quickly turn frustrating as you struggle to find the “spin” button.
Here are some of the questions we ask when making a user-friendly interface;
- How well does the game let the players know they’ve won?
- Is the spin button in a convenient place?
- Does the reel spin smoothly without lagging?
- Is the interface clean and clutter-free?
- Is there a well-defined visual hierarchy? (with the spin button being the obvious attention-grabber)
