The process of releasing a slot game to the market. After a slot is out in the wild, it’s important to regularly update it with new features, bug fixes, and other improvements. This will help keep the game fresh and engaging for players. It’s also a great way to build brand awareness. A good slot developer will make sure to market the game properly so that customers can easily find it online. They can do this by running ads on YouTube, Google, and other channels.
