Hey All,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any slot machine development software. I'm aware of Slot Designer, but is there anything else?

Specifically, I'm looking for something that will help generate PARS, run simulations, provide RTP reports, support for feature games, etc.

thanks

I'm not aware of any except for Slot Designer. I'm guessing that you would be quite limited in your game design by using a software package. If you are going to design slots and have a budget, I recommend hiring a gaming mathematician.
I heart Crystal Math.

I get a fair bit of business from game studios who try to use Slot Designer and find it can't handle their custom features. That's not a knock on the tool - it can't reasonably be expected to understand a mechanic that's just been invented.

To the OP, you've got three options for math work. You can hire a mathematician in-house, you can hire a game design consultant to work on your games, or you can hire a game design consultant to train one (or more) of your employees in the role.

(Shameless pitch: naturally, I've done all three...)

You have 3 options: Hire me, hire me, or hire me :)

To hire mathematician is the best solution.
You can choose me.
