16 March 2013

Everyone knows what casinos are, and everyone knows of slots, roulette and blackjack. So surely you know everything about the games that casinos offer, right?

Well, no.

Whilst roulette and blackjack may sound like the harder games to learn, you’ll actually find that slot games are the toughest to pick up since they differ greatly than the land based games everyone is used to. By the end of this guide, you’ll understand the basics of online slots which usually alienate players.

What Does It All Mean?

Online slots use a random number generator, also known as an RNG, which determines the random outcome that appears on the reels.

Over the past year or so, we have seen an exciting new wave of 3D slots becoming more widely available and they don’t require players to wear any kind of special glasses.

2011 was a great year for branded slots. They just keep getting better and better. The gameplay on most of these slots can be described as simply fantastic and the overall quality of the graphics and cutting edge animations often takes your breath away. The impressive sound effects and entertaining bonus rounds are also constantly evolving and becoming more creative with each new release.

It doesn’t look as though things are going to be any different in 2012. Many players often anticipate the arrival of a new branded slot (otherwise known as a bonus video slot) and with the amount of ground breaking new and old software developers currently churning out games at the rate they are now, hopefully some of these games that we would like to see will start becoming a reality and appearing in our favourite online casino sooner rather than later.

With the success of major branded games that have already been developed by some of the industry’s leading software providers, players have been able to experience games such as X-Men, Iron Man 1 and 2, Daredevil, Rocky, The Mummy, The Pink Panther, The Punisher, Lord of The Rings, the Fantastic Four and many more. We just hope to see as many great titles coming out in 2012.

Slot Games
may initially look easy, but with a clear house advantage jumping straight in on an online slot machine game can lead to losing money just trying to learn the ropes.
