Testing and Quality Assurance

The goal of this stage is to determine whether the components of your slot game are working as intended, and to identify any potential bugs or glitches.

A slot is a computer game based on spinning reels and symbols that pay out if they line up on the winning payline. Unlike most casino games, a slot machine doesn’t use an actual mechanical reel; instead, it uses a random number generator (RNG) to select a combination of symbols each time you press the “spin” button. This ensures that each spin is independent of the previous ones and gives players a fair chance of winning.
