SG Interactive, a division of Scientific Games, is the first game creator to make full use of screen space on mobile devices with Portrait Mode Gaming. Portrait-mode technology expands and enhances a player’s gaming experience by utilizing the full vertical screen space, creating better gaming immersion through advanced game displays on a mobile device that perfectly match the land-based game executions and player experiences.

Portrait mode makes a significant impact by offering mobile players seamless transitions between landscape and vertical screen orientations. With a quick tilt of the player’s mobile device, the screen adapts to fit the orientation, even in the middle of a spin. A gesture as basic as rotating a phone 90 degrees changes the game so it captures the energy of a towering slot machine, and the transition is incredibly smooth.

The vertical screen orientation allows for more engaging game art that interacts with key game mechanics and immerses the player in the title’s world. This effect is especially evident in themes like Dragon Spin, where dragons capture the essence of large-screen slot play and trigger wild symbols to appear on the reel set.

The power of portrait mode is an innovation that brings more opportunities to the surface than one might imagine. The real estate provided by a rotated device allows for truly captivating games that can be played with one hand and just a tap of the screen. The technology replicates the powerful presence of a slot machine, while also making online gaming as easy as checking Facebook or Twitter.

SG Interactive’s portrait-mode library highlights the advantages of the dynamic technology—Hercules High & Mighty, Lucky Tree and other titles all make full use of portrait gaming technology with enchanting artwork, fantastic bonus games and other features.

These titles are available on many online casinos in regulated jurisdictions.
