Why Are Real Money Slots So Popular?
Since I learnt what real money slots were, they have remained the most popular casino games among players. I found this confusing, though. What is so special about spinning reels, symbols, and blinking lamps and buttons?
At that time I was an inveterate gambler who preferred to play at roulette, watch the wheel spinning, the ball racing and keep guessing what number would come next. I could talk to dealers, security men and had I good time in the company of like-minded people. I couldn’t understand the gamblers that were sitting in front of slot machines and took their eyes off the display only to light a cigarette or take a drink brought by the waitress.
Talking to them was like trying to connect with a mannequin or a deaf-mute. However, slot lovers made up the majority of the casino audience. It were slots (and not roulette) that brought most profits to the casino. As a result, I decided to test my luck and give it a shot at slots.
It seemed - and actually was - pretty easy: shove a note into the currency detector, choose the game, bet and press “Start.” Half an hour later, I felt I was hypnotized by reels spinning. At first I thought I had unraveled the secret of slots’ popularity – gamblers get immediately addicted to slots and can’t stop playing.
Then I made another conclusion, though. Slots owe their popularity to their simplicity. No need to think hard, develop strategies or calculate complicated steps. All you need to do is to shove money and press the button. No need to even to take money yourself: you can switch to Auto mode – and your winnings will be automatically transferred to your account.
Now imagine an average player who came to the casino to play, relax and have a good time. Any guesses which game they will choose? Right! Real money slots! Here you can sit back, order a drink, light a cigarette and watch. Like TV-watching at home, plus a chance to win money. People choose the games where the result depends on pure luck. Won? Great. Lost? Not your day, buddy. You’ll get lucky some other time. That’s why slots are so incredibly popular. Well, that’ just my humble opinion, but it has the right to exist. Good luck!
