Intelligent skinning

Intelligent skinning is now just smarter than before. Instead of just offering the ability for the player to customize to a site, we have taken the VAST (pun intended) experience of our design team and layed down the foundation for player designs upon which we add intelligent programmatic modifications. This results in a more seamless and overall prettier player custom-tailored to your site’s design and theme. Custom skinning is better centralized than ever making our design team much more efficient at delivering the tough tasks put before them by our publisher partners.
