A community slot skin
making contest

Submission Starts: 00:00AM PST 20th June, 2018
Subnission Deadline: 23:59PM PST 19th July, 2018

DECENT.bet has been, and will always be, a community driven organisation. It is something that has been ingrained into our philosophy since day one and it is an ethos which has foundationally affected our business with everything from our profit sharing model, to the way that we ensure we include community thoughts and opinions in our decision making process.The reality is we simply would not exist without our community and we want to ensure that we continue to not only engage effectively with it, but that we empower it.

There’s an unlimited amount of wisdom and talent among you. Let’s tap into it, harness it, produce some great things from it, and reward you for it.

Importantly, a slots skin will do this and much, much more.

It is something that will not only foster engagement and creativity, but it is an activity that may even allow for long-lasting business value. Slots are an integral part of our initial offering, we want to make them as attractive as possible, and with your help, we know that this can be achieved.

Now, let’s talk about the contest.
