About the Company
Spinomenal is a US and Israel-based online real money slot game developer. The company started out in the social gaming sphere, perfecting its offering back in 2014.
The games are widely distributed in Asia, Latin America, and Europe mainly through aggregation and distribution deals with SoftSwiss, EveryMatrix, iForium, and Slotegrator.
Spinomenal certifications include the Malta Gaming Authority, eCOGRA, and BMM Testlabs. Standards by country include the domains of Alderney, Belarus, Bosnia (Republika Srpska), Bulgaria, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Gibraltar, Isle Of Man, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
The company was founded by Lior Shvartz and Omer Henya, the current CEO and CTO, respectively. Not much is known about their prior engagements in the iGaming industry, but Henya was a senior developer for several years before founding the company with Shvartz.
While involved only in social gaming prior to 2014, the company may have been known as "Lucky Gaming Technologies". The company deployed the first true HTML5 cross-platform social app on Facebook. This allowed players to access the games wherever they were on any device including smartphones, tablets, PC, or Mac.
Their first big break in the real money gambling sphere came via a launch on the now-defunct Odobo Marketplace just before the platform went out of business. It did give them potential exposure on well-known Odobo partner sites such as Unibet, Bet365, and Betfair.
The first tranche of games included Nuts Commander and Forest Balance/Harmony, followed soon after by Demi Gods, Secret Potion, and Egyptian Rebirth.
We find at least one game and sometimes more than 100 titles deployed at over 200 online casinos. The list below has been curated for you by players all over the internet. The gaming sites with the highest player ratings are found at and near the top of the ranked and rated list.
Software and Games
As pioneers in HTML5 deployment, they have kept to that path. You won't need to download any software, apps, or plugins to play the games. They launch in any modern web browser for instant play on any device.
They keep the load weight down to 3MB or less on all games, regardless of the level of 3D shading, stereoscopic soundscape, or multi-layer bonus games. The coding is lean and mean and the games pop right open even if you are in an area with a poor internet signal.
Of Industry Interest
In addition to consumer products delivered over a business-to-business model (B2B), the company develops and offers Blockchain Honesty Control, Casino Manager Tools, Marketing Tools, Point of Sale systems, Social Deep Integration, and Virtual Lottery Terminals. Machine learning math modules are used in game creation, making Spinomenal far more than a content provider, rather they are an innovative technology provider with games.
The games are all colorful when appropriate and offer unusual narratives and storylines - even when the theme has been visited dozens of hundreds of times such as "Egyptian slots".
With over 175 titles in circulation as of the time of this review, we see no end in sites to their growth with new games pouring out of the labs and studios at a rate of nearly one new game every 10 calendar days.
With such a vast portfolio, we may want to go deep under the hood of several titles to determine if we are seeing a formerly highly innovative disruptor pumping out repainted clones -or- if the games are truly as original as they can be with so many titles.
How many times can you mix feature mechanics and maths models to arrive at nearly 200 titles? This a rhetorical question.
Taking a look at some of the serial slots we see the Demi Gods franchise has expanded to include four titles with the July 2020 release of Demi Gods IV.
Demi Gods - The Original
This is a six-reel slot with 25 pay lines and a lot of features, but you have to trade RTP for entertainment on most spins with a theoretical return to player percentage of 92.82%.
January 8, 2015, the game features symbol transformation, dynamic free spins, a surprise scatter, boss battle bonus game, surprise, expanding, and sticky wilds, and win multipliers.
You are part man, part god, a serpent from the underworld. Fight the one who has never been beaten and seek guidance from the gods to prevail and become a hero to mankind.
A column on the right is the sixth reel and it has a single position. On some spins, it comes up blank, but on others, it can conjure up one of seven features from win multipliers to surprise wilds and free spins.
- Poseiden grants free spins
- Hades will turn random symbols wild
- Artemis pays scatters
- Ares will expand his symbol on reels 2 and 4 to fill the reels
- Zeus will turn all of his symbols into sticky wilds with respins
- Catch a dragon eye with two or more others on the reels to trigger the bonus rounds
Demi Gods II - Expanded Edition
Take all of the thrills of Demi Gods and add even more excitement with some of the same features and a few new twists. This game still has six reels but the pay lines have doubled to 50.
The artwork on the splash screen while loading the game will get your heart racing. There are four free spins modes, stacked symbols, expanding and extra wilds, respins with moving reels, a free spins journey, and expanding wild that shifts on the reels and a choice to be made when you trigger free spins.
The spins go faster in this game than in its predecessor.
Now With 6 reels and faster spins and the icing on this Greek pastry? Once you unlock all 4 Free spin modes you will able to choose which one you want to play!!! This is an AMAZING chance to select and play your favorite game mode!
Demi Gods III
They just keep building on winning mechanics with this title. The RTP is boosted to 96.2% and you still get 50 bet lines. Win multipliers, extra wilds, a prize box, sticky and expanding wilds, and a shifting reel keep it interesting but that's not all. Look for guaranteed wins, winning symbol respins, synced reels, and the ability to buy the feature game!
Demi Gods IV
More great graphics here, 50 pay lines, and a slight boost in RTP to 96.3%.
Seriously, they have to stop making sequels in this series because... well... they make so many other games seem "not worthy".
Many developers' serial games disappoint and rehash, but these do not. The graphics on IV are worlds apart from the first release and every mechanic is fine-tuned to perfection.
Buy Bonus Spins, take a Power Spin, sit back and enjoy Free Spins with this epic culmination of the franchise so far.
Demi Gods conclusion
What may have been "just another game", one without remarkable graphics and a retread theme, must have appealed to players at a level that the developers were hearing about it.
What to do?
It would appear that they marshaled their resources, brought out the big guns from their tool kit, and set out with a passion to evolve the game step by step.
While many of the titles would stand on their own in any respect against nearly any other title out there (with the exception of the lackadaisical graphics and low RTP of the primal version) the library of all 4 games so far raises the collection to the level that any one of them could be a contender for top ten slots in almost anyone's favorites.
Let's take a look at the feature of a couple more games and imagine...
Great narrative with each element aligned to gameplay
"Protect the light spirits, or attack them, the choice is yours. You decide who wins the battle in the epic bonus game"
- 2 Bonus Games
- 2 Free Spin Modes
- 40 Lines
- Expanding Wild
- Scattered Wild
- Symbol Transformation
A new take on a theme with uncountable attempts to master it. This one does not, in my opinion, but it does take it up a notch.
"Rise from the ashes like the phoenix and remember that after every loss comes a Big Win."
- 25 Lines
- Bonus Game
- Expanding Wild
- Free Spins
- Surprise Wild
Nuts Commander - Squirrel Commando!
All fun and games until you hit the jackpot then it's more fun and games.
"Battle for every supply drop for your troops, shoot them down with your bazooka before they fall into the water."
- 20 Lines
- Commando Slot
- Free Spins
- Shoot'em Up Bonus Game
- Wild Multiplier
We find one European roulette game in this category. Do they have to have a mix of games for certain partners or regulators? Is it a marketing ploy to say they make 3 kinds of games? We're not sure.
There's not a lot to see here beyond decent physics on the ball and wheel and an interactive user interface with plenty of feedback. It plays on mobile or desktop/laptop, and offers turbo spins and autoplay.
They mention this vertical but we don't find it going anywhere. Monster Scratch and Scratchy Bits are animated 3x3's that almost nobody would miss if they were never created. Again, we don't know why they make these games.
The Final Analysis
What is so interesting about this company is that they seem to be well-endowed in so many ways. Yes, the slot games that hit the mark are all... awesome, but there's more here.
Recall, "...[we] don't see ourselves as a content provider but as an innovation and technology provider".
The gambling sphere is changing. These guys are using tools that most of us don't even have a clue about. There is artificial intelligence at work here even if they call it machine learning.
We don't know if they are using it to refine games like Demi Gods, based on data about customer play on the games, or to create new games - but you can bet they are using it to give you a better product.
That makes Spinomenal a power to be reckoned with in any open regulated market.
The profits from successful companies can fuel nearly unlimited innovation, which is always good for the player in the long run.
But sometimes an already existing major player owns something about a "disruptor" and the end result is not in the player's best interests, but a monopoly on intellectual property that can be used to squeeze pennies.
We'll place this company shoulder to shoulder with Skywind for potential and hope it's a bunch of really cool tech-savvy people ready to change the way we do gambling in a good way.
