Slot machines are everywhere in the iGaming market these days, and it’s clear to see why, as technological advancements and a constant increase in popularity has seen this game type reach previously unimaginable heights.
However, with such intense popularity, comes an immense amount of competition, and new developers that focus on slot games can often get lost in the shuffle.
Spin Games is a company that is clearly aware of this risk, and as a result, they have sidestepped this game category, and instead focus on another popular type of game, symbol matching titles in the style of Candy Crush and other popular mobile games.

Despite the huge player base that this type of game enjoys, Spike Games are the only company that, at this point, specialises exclusively in them, giving them a leg up on their competition, and something close to a niche.
This is definitely a good thing for Spike Games, but only if the games they produce are good enough to take advantage of the opportunity.
There’s a small number of symbol match games currently available from Spike Games.
Firstly, Super Candy Cash, which takes more than a little influence from the Candy Crush series. A bright and colourful game with a 9x9 grid, the aim is to match different candies to win cash prizes.
Stardrop is a little different, a space-themed game that has the same idea as Super Candy Cash, but has extra features that make it stand out, including a free spins feature that is rare in such games.
Shamrock Shuffle combines the popular theme of Irish Luck with a symbol match concept, and is somewhere between the two previously mentioned games, and a traditional slot machine, making it unique, and well worth a try.
There’ll need to be more games before we can know how good Spike Games are, but they’ve made a good start.
