Are Slots Beating Bingo?

Slot sites have been coming in thick and fast of late. You will find some of the big name bingo brands such as Wink Bingo, Costa Bingo etc have been launching their own slots or “games” versions of their site that are specific to slots and casino games. We have even found the likes of Jumpman Gaming, branch out into new horizons with the launch of Jumpman Slots who are responsible for the likes of Slot Shack. Could this be due to the increasing popularity of slot machines over bingo?

Why are slot machines so popular?

These days there are a flurry of slot providers out there such as Net Ent, Microgaming, Next Gen, Eyecon and many more who produce video slots of the highest quality. Along with special bonus features, you will find that they have fantastic graphics, animations and sound effects that have made them more popular than ever. The best slot sites partner with a range of machine developers to provide players with a wide selection of games, and the best of them all. Quite often the amount of money that can be won on slots is greater than what you will be able to win on bingo.

What makes a good slots website?

There are a number of things you should look out for when joining a new slots site. First of all, it’s a good idea to check whether or not they are mobile optimised or not – so you can get your fix on the go, although mobile functionality is still a fairly recent development, most operators have recognised just how significant it is and have incorporated it in their products. As well as this, you may want to check what the welcome package is like. Lots of sites these days offer no deposit free spins, or else free spins when you make a deposit to incentivise players to join, which is a good way of trying a site out for size before you join. Sometimes there is also the option to check out a specific slot machine on demo mode, which means you can get to grips with how the games work before spending money.

On top of this – you may want to check out payment methods, wagering requirements and general terms and conditions which are always available on site before you make your decision. It could be that you are only allowed to use your free spins on certain games, or that you need to deposit a large amount before you deposit, or that they don’t have your preferred payment method available – so it’s always a good idea to check the small print. Remember, it is law that terms and conditions should only be one click away from the homepage – any operator not making these clear is not worth your custom!
