Why we all love slots

Slots have long been the most popular games in land-based casinos and now that so many of us play online, it’s not really surprising that slots have retained their popularity. When you look at any casino site like 32red, slots games make up the largest category by far, with many sites hosting hundreds of differently themed slots.

So what is it that makes us go wild for playing slots? One of the main reasons is that the games are so easy to play. There’s no decision-making like there would be in a game like roulette or blackjack. It’s just a question of deciding how much you want to bet per spin and then letting the reels do their stuff. No matter what you do, you can’t affect the outcome as the games are controlled by random number generator software, so there’s no way of predicting what combination of symbols the reels will land on next.

Then, of course, there’s the possibility of winning large amounts of cash. Some of the progressive jackpot amounts with online slots are staggering and the fact that the wins are random means that whenever you play, as long as you fulfil the requirements for the progressive jackpot like betting max, you could be in with a chance of winning the big prize. As so many casino sites host the same games, the prize fund grows really quickly, and when someone wins it, the casinos put a seed amount in to make sure if there’s another win immediately, the next winner still gets a decent amount.

Slots are also designed to fit with every taste and interest. If you like superheroes and comic book characters, you can find slots themed along these lines. Similarly there are slots based on TV quiz shows and films, as well as traditional-style fruit machine slots. You can choose to play three reel slots with single pay lines or ones with 100 pay lines or more. What you have to watch on the multi-line slots, though, is that you know how much you’re betting each spin – the line bet is multiplied by the number of lines you’re playing.

For accessibility, slots win out too. If you enjoy playing casino games on the move, check out the games that are available to play on a mobile and you’ll find that the majority of games are slots. This makes sense, as the graphics work well on a smaller screen, and as there’s little player interaction, it’s easy to play on the smaller screen too. Also, you can login to play slots at any time for just a few moments – you don’t have to clear a slot in your diary as you would have to for a game of poker, for example. So it’s great to play them on your phone while you’re waiting for someone or for an appointment.

Slots are easy to play and offer lots in terms of entertainment, with the possibility of winning big at any time. It’s no wonder we love them!
