Just a quick note to mention that I will be speaking about Aspect Oriented Programming at next Saturday’s DDD10 in Reading, some great sessions in the line up this year, hope to see you there
We’ve been busy at work the last couple of weeks and I’m proud to tell you that we have some nice improvements to JackpotJoy Slots including two new slots as well as a revamp of the tournament feature!
Spellbound Forest is a fantasy-themed All Pays slots where matching symbols on adjacent lines (or Wild symbols) will give you a total of 243 different ways to win!
When you land 3 or more Bonus symbols anywhere on the screen, the multi-stage pick bonus game will commence and take you through magical wonderland which at the end will also award you with a multiplier on any thing you win during the bonus!
Diamond Fortune is a standard 25-line slot, which was launched as part of our Olympics promotion when our players collectively made a staggering 800 million spins during the summer games!
It features a pick bonus game with up to 5 pick stages, if the player manages to avoid picking a Collect symbol and make their way past all 5 security beams there will also be a multiplier bonus waiting for which can multiply their winnings in the bonus game by up to 4 times!
Last but not least, we also introduced a big revamp of our tournament feature, introducing Fire and Ice mode when you go on a winning or losing streak. Whilst the player is on fire or on ice they’ll receive bonus for continuing the streak – keep on winning whilst on fire or keep losing whilst on ice, and the longer the streak goes on for the bigger the bonus!
The leaderboard on the left will also tell you which player’s current on fire or on ice.
To make it easier for you to try it out I’ve uploaded the package to NuGet, which you can download from here, or run the simple NuGet command:
in the package manager console inside Visual Studio.
To try it out, please have a look at the examples available on the project’s wiki page (see below list) or take a look at the F# and C# example projects included as part of the solution.
Again, feedbacks and suggestions are very welcomed, and do let me know if you run into any problems or inconveniences whilst using Filbert and I’ll do my best to help you resolve them ASAP.
Since I’m liking git more and more by the day, with tools such as SmartGit and GitFlow making the task of managing even a complex branching model a relatively easy task, I’ve decided to move my Simple Speed Tester project over to github!
Simple Speed Tester is a very simple framework I wrote to help me run benchmarks and is used to power my JSON and binary serializers benchmarks. It takes cares of some of the orchestration that you tend to do when running benchmarks, e.g.:
It’s intended to be really easy to use (see examples here) and for one and only one use case – help you speed test a specific piece of code!
If you’re like me and like to run your own benchmarks then check it out, you can also install it via Nuget.
