Strict Parents

Strict Parents

The September edition of the Eilers-Fantini Game Performance Report noted the powerful brands in the slot world and how they often dominate the casino floor. A parent game is the overall brand that has many derivations. For example, Lightning Link has at least four variations: High Stakes, Sahara Gold, Happy Lantern and Magic Pearl. And Lightning Link leads all parent games by gross win in the premium segment by a considerable margin, followed by Dragon Link and Wheel of Fortune.
