What is a skill-based game?

Real money games in other words are skill-based games where all types of games that include skill, strategy, tactics, proper game knowledge, and logical thinking are involved. Generally, a real-money game means when the user buys chips/coins to play the game and after winning the user can redeem the chips/coins in real money. However, if the user loses the match/game, all the invested money will vanish. Each chip/coin has a monetary value. Here every win is rewarding and every defeat is a loss. Some examples of real money games are MPL(Rummy, Ludo), MyTeam11, WinZo(29 Card), Indian Rummy (Artoon Games), CallBreak, Solitaire, Ludo, etc.

Do’s

Advanced UI/UX

There is no doubt UI/UX is a prime factor in grabbing someone’s attention in any type of game. In recent years, we are continuously witnessing some awesome UI/UX designs and that makes the game even more exciting. The card games are always exciting as it involves skills, strategy, tactics, logical thinking, etc. So, it goes without saying that if the owner is able to target a large audience through its unique and advanced UI/UX, then the owner can generate huge revenues in the future.

3D Avatars

These are the new modern ways of attracting a large number of gamers in a small time. 3D avatars make the game very interesting and almost every player wants an avatar-based game. In 3D avatar-based games everything needs to be 3D from head to toe and they all must have animation effects that will create a new aura for the gamers. The playing table, chair, background i.e environment all should be in 3D.

So, if the owner wants to make an impact in the gaming world he must add a feature like 3D Avatar. One of the best examples of a 3D avatar-based game is 400 Arba3meyeh

Proper R&D - Region, Genre of gamers, Type of Game

While playing skill-based games, one common thing is associated with every player and that is fear of losing. If you are a beginner and willing to play this skill-based game, the first thing you must do is read the game help file and read about the instructions. Many players tend to avoid this and endup in losing the game. Proper game knowledge is required to win in skill-based games.

Region or genre of gamers is a small but important topic, you need to decide which game type and which age group you are targeting for a successful game. Suppose, you have a fantasy game, your targeting age group will be 25 to 40. These are the people who are largely active on social sites and show interest in fantasy games. Also, you need to follow the latest trends. People may don’t like outdated UI/UX.

Secure payment gateways

In card games, the payment gateway must be of the highest quality. Specifically, in real money(skill-based) card games, payment options become highly important as users will continuously do transactions. If the payment gateway is not up to the mark then users might face issues that will result in a degraded user experience.

The owner should always go for secure payment options and adding a feature like multiple payment options i.e Debit card, Credit card, and UPI payments(GooglePay, PhonePe, Paytm, etc) will make the game trustworthy and that will result in generating huge revenues.

Video chats and texts with Emojis

Chatting is a great feature to add to a card game. Most gamers always prefer to know about other gamers and increase user interaction. Chatting will definitely help in increasing user interaction. The owner can add a special feature like emojis to express the feeling in a more precise way. Also, the owner can add a video chat feature. Most users like video chats instead of normal chat. Giving both options in the same app will surely result in gaining more users.

Don’t

Is the app meeting user expectations?

Attracting new visitors to your game app every day isn’t an easy task. There is a different set of expectations associated with every single user. The first interaction of a real money game app with the user is the most important stage that should be taken utmost care of. Some users expect extra-special things and some just figure out all the things included in the app. To reach every single user’s preferences is almost an impossible task and most of those miss early visitors with a poor home page screen.

App onboarding should be on cue. Users may don’t like filling long registration forms. Get routine sign-in/ sign-up procedures in place asking for just name and email address or quick login procedures like Google, Facebook, Instagram sign up.

Cross-platform or not?

Are you developing the same game for too many platforms? This is one of the common mistakes that every gaming industry commits. Making the presence on every platform isn’t a bad idea but it will cost more and the expected result may not come.

You must identify which platform you want to go for. Each platform whether it be Android, iOS has its own pros and cons. Presently, choosing a cross-platform game development will be more beneficial than any other. But most of the time the game owners prefer to start with Android only. But it depends upon the marketing strategy and target audience / existing user base.

Not releasing updates on time

Developers must consider their game application as a work in progress. They must ensure that they are assessing the app’s performances and making necessary changes to it. To obtain a game application that is free of all the errors, it’s important to release updates on time. Achieving this is not difficult, you just need to have a good developer who ensures to revamp and make necessary changes to the app to improve its performance.

Insufficient app testing

Testing your game app before releasing is imperative. Daily more than thousands of game apps are released making the competition tough. On top of that, the last thing you would want is your game app to fail while launching. You can avoid this if you have dedicated app developers and QA engineers to ensure adequate testing of your app at regular intervals, on different platforms, devices. If you opt to outsource your gaming project, make sure that the vendor has a dedicated team of QA/ testers.

Conclusion

Skill-based games are the most popular games nowadays with the implementation of so many new technologies. It provides an option to earn money as well as gain some skills, tactics, improve your strategy, and many more. The aforementioned points best describe how a skill-based game owner should plan before developing a game app.
