SkillOnNet can still be considered a fairly small developer, at least if you look at the number of sites that they currently power. Their website mentions that there are 12 gaming sites that use their platform, and which benefit from their 24/7 support in multiple languages, while using 35+ payment options.
SkillOnNet has started out in 2005, as a developer of software for a very well known online Backgammon site, going by the name BGroom. They’ve grown in time, by creating new slots and by signing up new sites to power, including some very well known online casinos.
SkillOnNet Casino Games
With more than a decade since they were founded, SkillOnNet has only managed to create about 50 or so casino games, out of which they mention that 30+ are the slot machines. They also have other types of games that a casino’s player might want, including the popular American or European Roulette, plus three types of Blackjack, one of them offering progressive jackpots. They seem to have started working on a collection of Video Poker titles as well, though they have only four games in that category right now (Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild, Joker Poker and Jacks or Better). Finally, there are games of Baccarat, Casino Hold’em, Craps, Pai Gow, Casino War, Let Them Ride and Progressive Caribbean Poker.
Getting back to the slot machines that they offer, the 30+ games that they have in this category have variety when it comes to the number of lines, up to 50 available in their more generous titles. The quality of these games isn’t the same across the board, but you will definitely find some fun slots to play in that collection. A slot machine like Professor Bubbles is proof that they can do great work when they put their mind to it.
There are two games with progressive jackpots right now, in the SkillOnNet collection. The games in question are called Good & Evil and Millionaire Genie.
The theme of a game can be of great importance, particularly if you’ve played slots in the past and you’re tired of playing Ancient Egypt or Irish themed games, just two examples among the topics that are just as often used by developers. SkillOnNet does have a number of slots inspired by common themes, including here Zombie Bar, World Soccer or Sweets Insanity, but they don’t usually go for the ones that are everywhere. As for the more unique choices, I’d count in this category slots like The Bees Buzz, Tattoo Mania, Steampunk Luck or Mars Odyssey.
As it happens with most developers that have been around for more than a couple of years, when it comes to graphics quality the slots from SkillOnNet are a mixed bag. There are plenty of examples of recent slot machines that have very well made designs, but there are also some that I wouldn’t even call average. I’ve seen their recent releases though, and I have to say that they’re good enough to keep you playing their games. Professor Bubbles is a favorite of mine, along with Troy Super Spin and others.
The vast majority of the games offered by SkillOnNet are going to use 5 reels and will have as many as 50 lines, though 20/30 lines are more common. A couple of 3 reel games are also used though, slots like Jukebox 10000 and 7 Heaven, both examples sporting 3 lines and no major features.
The more interesting games would be the ones with 5 reels though, not just because they offer more chances to win, but also because their features improve the gameplay experience. Some slots of theirs will offer the players winning combinations that can form by starting from either side of the screen. Others will have bonus games, wild symbols, free spins, different game modes (Party Mode in the game Limo Party), huge multipliers (at 50x during free spins, in Steam Punk) and others.
Their slots have quite a few payouts which are better than average, and I’ve noticed some with rewards of up to 10,000x. They don’t seem to rely on ways to win for their games, and so they typically offer bigger rewards than the majority of the slots you see launched these days.
Two alternatives would be the progressive jackpots which can be won through two slot machines from SkillOnNet, called Millionaire Genie and Good and Evil.
