Is there a "Reel Deal" slots game that HASN'T been abandoned?

Okay, some background: the Wife loves those slot machines. There.

Reel Deal Slots is a respected game franchise for the PC crowd, but their games for the iOS devices has been abysmal... From the original Reel Deal Slots from when the App Store opened to (which as far as I can tell has been removed) to all 15 current variants, they seem to be okay with introducing a game and promptly ignoring it completely afterwards...

Does anybody know of any current slot machine games for the iPhone (or universal) that have actively participating developers? One frustrating thing about the iOS landscape is just how quickly some of the apps become abandonware...

Thanks in advance.

Fair enough -- I did notice that several of the Reel Deal games have had updates... but a 3-star average on 11 reviews (and only one review so far on the most recent update that I can see on my phone) still makes me more than a little bit leery.

Freezing, crashing, bonuses that don't actually work... on our original game there was a specific pattern that occurred with the game so you knew exactly what your results would be ahead of time and when you'd get a bonus -- not what you really want on a make believe slot machine (on one that actually pays out, this would be a fantastic feature!) From some of the reviews, some of the newer games also have this issue. Updates don't address older issues, from what I've experienced.

We have Burning Monkey Casino, which is okay; and a very basic three-reel slots game that's bug-free but otherwise underwhelming.

Thanks, though. I'll keep looking around... doesn't really seem like a popular genre at TA.

Hello, The Reel deal games that i have seen mostly are those which need a downlaod. I would like to see a game that can be played online. Be it a reel deal slots or the other slots games variation for the iphone.
