What is Selekta® and why are we unique?
Identifying the elements of games that are associated with successful models has been the basis of the designs offered here.
Years of statistical research to find these elements underpin our games structures.
There are game functions and features that are required if a game is to be popular with players. Some of these are not immediately obvious – they are time dependent. They only emerge as a result of play sessions. Identifying these elements and incorporating them into our games is the first focus of our game designs.
Selekta® enables independent settings for the overall game hit rate and game volatility, which are critical variables for the success of the game for both the player and the operator. In traditional game designs, these two important properties cannot be easily separated. By using the Selekta® method in our proprietary games, designers can precisely target low/high denomination players, in addition to a range of Return to Player requirements and standard deviation variations.Selekta Games Pty Ltd is an Australian registered company that supplies slot machine, video poker and table game mathematics for the international gaming industry.
The Selekta® process is included in our proprietary Selekta® branded slot machine games that are ideally suited to the needs of gaming machine manufacturers, online gaming suppliers and operators of casino and gambling sites.
The Selekta® features introduce operator and player elements to extend game play, enhance player satisfaction, and maximise operator profits.
For instance, Selekta® offers unique Hold & Spin options, in addition to Progressive Prize functionality. Some of these features are listed below:
1. One feature in a Selekta® game is triggered by a predetermined event in a play. This occurs with a frequency directly related to the number of play lines wagered. In essence, from the player’s perspective, the more lines wagered, the more frequently the feature will occur per play.
2. The Selekta® Hold & Spin feature automatically starts with each of the numerous triggers per game.
3. When the Selekta® Hold & Spin feature starts, one symbol only is automatically selected.for extra bonus plays.
4. If the automatically selected symbol occurs on any reel, that reel is held in place for the remainder of the bonus plays. Reels which do not have the automatically selected symbol continue to spin until the end of the bonus plays.
5. Unlike traditional slot games, Selekta® games use a specific set of reel strips pre-assigned to each bonus play in the sequence of extra plays awarded.
6. Selekta® game wins during the Hold & Spin session are added to any previous player wins during the same player session (a detailed example, called the WAYG method – Win As You Go – can be viewed in the downloadable pdf file below).
A variation of this unique process is also used in our Progressive Prize games, which can be viewed in our Games Comparison selection of games.
Our SelektaGames.com Progressive Prize games all offer multi-level prizes. They also offer the automatic Hold & Spin process to determine which prize level is won.
The trigger to activate the progressive prize feature guarantees that one of the prize levels will be won – which one is determined by the automatic Hold & Spin play(s). Not shown here is the “clean sweep” progressive where it is possible for a player to win all prize levels in a single play (or some of the prizes, but at least one). These types of progressive prize designs can be supplied on request.
The games shown here are all suitable for stand-alone implementation or for a multiple game network.
The Hold & Spin feature can be readily designed for multi-million values and/or for rapid win expectations.
Transplants – This method also enables progressive prizes to be easily added to any standard spinning reel game shown elsewhere on this web site. For example, the Progressive Prize feature of the Summer Progressive game can be readily transplanted on to the Crown Supreme and the Asian Promise games without changing the base functions of those games. Because of the way that the Hold & Spin Progressive system is designed such transplanting amounts to a simple cut-and-paste process. This enables operators to offer progressive networks with a wide variety of participating games.
With the advent of microprocessor controlled slot machines, many of the mechanical constraints on game design were removed.
The Telnaes patent, enabling virtual reel sizes, started the adventure. Advances in computer technology along with video slot designs added new player-entertainment functions enhancing the adventure still further.
At Selektagames.com, we offer some of the latest examples of game design features.
Visitors may purchase fully documented games illustrated here. They may also request designs based on their own particular requirements.
On receipt of specific requests, we will advise of the detailed game properties. Fully documented files mathematically describing each aspect of a game will enable customers to program the games for operation on their own proprietary platform.

The video poker games illustrated presume the random selection of cards in all game phases.
The operating properties shown for each game are based on optimal play strategies which have been mathematically determined.
Video Poker was first popularised by the legendary Si Redd in the late 1970’s. In the beginning, the game featured two-pair as the lowest win combination; it was quickly followed by the “Jack or Better” game which even today remains a favourite with many.
The early basic video poker, in lockstep with the advances in computer technology, has spawned hundreds of variations and enhancements. Video poker is now established as a significant sector of the gaming industry.
Some examples of the modern games can be free-played here. They all exemplify the results of the special skills of the poker mathematicians.
