We’re over two months into 2021 and slot machines continue their march forward, becoming one of the most popular forms of iGaming on the web.

More and more developers are getting involved, designing ever more sophisticated content for the consumers’ benefit – join now at Mr Luck.

But there’s more to it than just that. Online slot games provide online gamblers a number of benefits that all add to the UX (user experience). That’s why we keep coming back for more.

Convenience

Clearly, one of the most obvious advantages that iGaming has over traditional in-house slots is convenience. You can play from your own home, whether that’s a desktop computer or a mobile device. This has opened the door to 24/7 accessibility which increases the UX too.

Better Bonuses

The iGaming industry is a multi-billion-pound industry. There’s some serious money getting moved around. It’s a happy symbiosis too. The better the content is, the more people sign up to use it. The more people there are wagering money, the more money gets plowed back into the industry. As a result, the jackpots and bonuses are more generous and more lucrative than they’ve ever been. Even simple things like “welcome packages”, “reload bonuses” and “loyalty bonuses” can now offer more than in-house slots machines could ever offer new users.

Free Gaming

When could you ever wander into a traditional casino and feel within your rights to play for free? Well, that’s just part and parcel of playing online, another thing in-house slots could never offer. Free gaming options in the shape of demos are found on nearly every online casino site so you can practice and learn the various aspects of the game. Even if you don’t have enough money to place a wager, theoretically, you can simply play the game for free!

More Frequent Pay-outs

The RTP percentages are higher with online slots. It’s very common to find RTP rates around the 95% mark and above. Land-based casinos simply can’t compete. The ones in Las Vegas average around 75% and others rarely go any above 90%.
