Why are online slots so popular?

8 June 2011

By CM Jones

Since the first whispers of online gambling appeared on the net in 1994, the internet casino movement has picked up pace ever since to the point where various establishments are now advertising on TV, in big print media and a sponsoring top sports teams and events. We’ve seen a massive rise in public interest in games like roulette and poker, but no single game is quite grabbing the people’s attention like slot games. Titles such as Cleopatra, Rainbow Riches and Monopoly are currently accounting for between 65%-80% of all gambling traffic, but why are they so popular?

There are many reasons why slots are number one in the hearts of many an online gambler. You’ve got to primarily look at the ease with which most of these can be played, as whilst other games such a baccarat, blackjack and roulette require a modicum of knowledge, most slots can be played with just a single press of a button. Remember too that casino slots differ from fruit machines, as casino slots never put you in a position where you could lose all your winnings like you can on a fruity, so there is no danger that an amateur player could accidentally screw up their chances of hitting a win.

Perhaps the biggest reason why online slots are so popular is the wide variety of progressive games that offer over a million as a prize. These games, such as Mega Moolah Slot and Cluedo Megajackpots give players a chance to hit prizes that are often well into seven figures, so we’re talking life changing amounts of money here, comparable with winning the country’s National Lottery. No other gambling games online present quite the same chance to win big from only a small stake and for this reason alone we believe that slots are going to be sitting at the top of the Online Slots charts for quite some time.
