SC Analytics Insights 2019H1 – The best slots released in the first half of 2019

slot-rankIn the first edition of SlotCatalog Analytics Insights, we look game releases during the first half of 2019, and how they have performed 3 months after their release date.

Between January and June 1069 slot games from 179 different game providers have been released. On average, game providers have released 6 games (one game a month), but the median game provider only released three titles during the first half of 2019. The average RTP of the games released was 95.46%.

SlotCatalog have measured the quality & exposure of these slot games for four different markets (United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Japan). Each game has been evaluated by its 30-day average SlotRank, starting 3 months after the games release date (day 90-120).

Example: Dead or Alive 2 was released on 2019-04-23. We’ve measured its average SlotRank in day 90-120 of the release (2019-7-23 - 2019-10-23).

FAQ

What is SlotRank?

We scan casino sites for 23 markets daily to find out what games they have and which games they place in their lobby. Some of these casinos have enough estimated traffic to be included in the SlotRank calculation, others will be excluded since their exposure towards players is minimal.

We aggregate this data and distribute points to each game based on its positions in the crawled casinos. Points are distributed based on lobby position (where position 1 will give the most points) and then multiplied with a weight-multiplier.

The weight-multiplier is determined by the geographical popularity of the casino site, based on estimated traffic (For example the largest UK casino will have full weight, and the least popular UK casino included in the ranking will have the smallest weight-multiplier).

Why is the ranking based on day 90-120 SlotRank average methodology?

New games come and, sometimes, goes. Highly established game providers have their games published in a lot of casinos quickly, and their games automatically get a chance to prove their quality in the lobbies. If the release is of high quality it will stay at premium lobby positions. However, lesser-known game providers might need some time to prove their high-quality release.

When can I see this data on SlotCatalog?
