    For a long time, the slots industry has been stuck in a certain mode of thinking, and this has prevented much in terms of high-level innovation. Instead, most innovation happens at the lower level with new features like wilds that move in different directions or new ways to trigger free spins bonus rounds. While this might be exciting for a little while, the fact of the matter is that all of these so-called innovations will get old quickly because they provide more or less the same experience as before.

    Introducing True Innovation

    With the Spin16 platform, software provider Genii is looking to do something different. They're achieving this by starting at a higher level and looking at changing the fundamental rules of how slots work. One of the main premises of these titles is that players are going to be more involved in gameplay instead of just mindlessly pressing a button over and over. They're achieving this by allowing players to manipulate and spin individual reels in any direction, including horizontally.

    The Tie-In For Mobile

    The fact of the matter is that software companies in the online casino space have to start thinking more towards the future, and that future is the mobile market. It's been the fastest-growing sector of the industry for years now, and Genii's Spin16 platform takes advantage of that by incorporating intuitive gameplay into their new titles. The swipe motion is one of the basic building blocks of interacting with today's smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, and it's an integral part of the Spin16 interface since players can swipe reels in all directions.

    Compatibility Issues

    Compatibility isn't going to be a problem for anyone with any kind of device when it comes to the Spin16 platform. These games work on desktop platforms just as well as they work on mobile ones. On top of that, Windows, Apple and Android are all supported on mobile devices. This means that no matter what kind of device you use or what type of operating system you have on that device, you'll be able to get in on the action with the new and innovative Spin16 slot platform.
