Hello,
I'm a developer and a client hired me to make an online casino.
I'm looking for books, tutorials, guides or tools for a fast generation of online slot reels... Do you have something to recommend?

I usually start with an existing game par sheet and modify it from there.

I've coded an application to help me placing symbols on reel strips.
The application will build several strip segments with special symbols like wild, scatter, bonus.
Then build strip segments about your features like the stack, expanding wild....etc.
Last, combine all rest symbols and segments to complete a reel strip.

It may take times to code one, but save times once you have one.

Chances are you won't be back or back for long, but it sounds like you shouldn't have accepted the job.

How do you decide ho to place the symbols on the strips? Can you give me some practical advise?

It's a personal matter whether you like stacked symbols, want never to have too many multiple wins (i.e. Red 7 never follows Cherry on any reel except first). In the end it probably doesn't really matter as long as the return comes from the total number of symbols on the reel. The layout might affect the variance if you had multiple wins on one result rather than individual ones on different results. Similarly you'll need to decide whether things like features are symbols on reels 1 - 3 (or similar) or any 3 from all 5 reels.

But how do you construct the reels, randomly or using some algorithm?

It was always interesting for me how developers write online games.

I lay them out randomly. Itís tedious, so I did write a program to help me. Then, if thereís something I donít like, I adjust it manually. Once youíve done several games, then you can start reusing old reels.
I heart Crystal Math.

That is also how I have done them.

This sounds a pretty major piece of work and you may be out of your depth if you are developing all aspects. Most on-line casinos buy in game functionality under license with revenue share arrangements.
Don't try to reinvent the wheel.
If you design and implement any part of the games or payment systems badly, the casino could suddenly lose a fortune. I wouldn't want to be in your shoes then.
Do you have the maths and stats skills as well as the programming skills?
