In this version of the slot win combos are determined after both the vertical and horizontal spins are complete. It may be possible to have wins paid out after each direction of spins is complete. This may be better than having everything spin at the same time. When everything spins at the same time it looks messy.

Check out how responsive the game design is. Narrow down your window size and it will make the game rotate into portrait mode. In that case the order and direction of spins should change, but technically it was hard to implement.
OR try flipping your phone or tablet and the game will auto-adjust to any way you hold your device.

one question and one criticism.

Do you believe the spin style is unique? I built a prototype slot game for a successful English gentleman that had a lot of success selling a very popular table game in the U.S. market. His game had a very similar spin mechanism. As far as I know he never released the game.

I hate to be critical but the basket theme name is terrible. I really hope you don't plan to use it and that this is just a proof of concept for the spin.

I wish you the best of luck and hope you continue developing the concept.

thanks! It's encouraging to know that so far people like this concept since vendors need to know if there is a poteintal market for it. The name of the slot is easy to change. It's up to the vendor or potential developer to descide on the name. If you have any suggestions for a name, I'm all ears.

By the way, the slot that I built that was similar was about fifteen years ago so if there was Intellectual Property patents filed they may be expiring in the next few years.

...only criticism...people getting upset/complaining/feeling ripped off if they get a winning combo on the vertical spin and lose it on the horizon spin.

It's an interesting idea however I agree with the above so would have them all start spinning. I also sometimes found it hard to see the wins.

btw There are some games where each segment on each reel spin independently and/or reels spin normally. I remember one (possibly only a demo) based on fruits and States with a 4x4 screen that paid across, down and the two diagonals. A new one I've seen, paying multi ways across, has the center 9 spots spinning separately and the outside reels are normal.

Sorry, I can't. I was contracted to build it for another company and it is their game and their intellectual property. I am not saying the game was the same but it did have a similar type of spin mechanics.

As far as I know, that "basket" style of play has never been done before. Interesting idea but I'm not sure it would be a success in the market. It is hard to get into the mind of a slot player but I think they like to see spinning reels and to have half the positions remain in place would subtract from the experience. This is the kind of thing I would save for a bonus round but not do on every spin.

I also have to object to the soundtrack you chose. I think "Top of the World" is a beautiful song and not appropriate for a slot machine. I would just ditch the soundtrack completely.

I felt forced to a decision to enjoy the music or play the game. I chose the music.
