Technology is improving all the time, so it makes a lot of sense that, because the internet is something pretty much everyone has access to, this is where that technology is going to end up. Everything currently done physically may well have a virtual version coming up soon, if it doesn’t have one already. This includes slots, which is ideal as not everyone has the chance to play slots in a real life casino because there isn’t one nearby, or because they can’t get to one even if there is.
The question that has to be asked, though, is whether or not the best slots online are as good as tradition ones. They are similar, and the game is the same, but what about the payouts, the RTPs, and the experience? Let’s investigate further.
The Comfort Aspect
So although there are a number of different aspects of online slots that are the same as offline ones, there is something that does make online slots that little bit better – it’s the comfort level. When playing at home (or anywhere you choose, come to that, because of mobile gaming), the comfort level is high. You can be in bed, at your desk, on your commute to work, or any place you choose. You can be in your normal clothes, your pyjamas, in your birthday suit if that’s what works for you. The point is, unlike a physical slot machine where, in order to play it, you have to leave the house and be dressed, you can do whatever you want when it comes to online slots, making them much more comfortable.
Far More Choice
Another advantage that online slots have over physical, offline ones is the amount of choice players have. Because there is only ever going to be a limited amount of space in a land based casino, the casino owners have to pick and choose which slot games they put in there. They might switch them up once in a while, but generally you won’t get a lot of choice when you’re playing in such a casino.
Compare that to the online world. Firstly, online casinos can pretty much have as many slots as they want in their ‘casinos’ – it will come down to budget rather than space as there will be costs involved to buy the games and host them. Yet even if the casino you like playing at hasn’t got a slot game you’re particularly interested in enjoying, just look around; there will be another site that does. You can play any game you want at any time from home when you go online.
Play For Free
Offline slots are a social experience and that can feel like a benefit to a lot of people. Not everyone, of course, likes to talk to others, so the more individual online experience might suit better (and even if it doesn’t, there are chat rooms to use if you choose to). Yet what offline slots don’t offer are lots of free games. That’s where online slots really come into their own.
You can play demo games that let you get a feel of the game before you commit to paying any money, and they will help you choose what to play. It’s a definite advantage.
