Our annual review of your favorite casinos for slots
Across the country, slot machine manufacturers of all shapes and sizes are perpetually hard at work conceptualizing, designing and developing new games that will – they hope – significantly impact slot floors over the coming years. This is especially important under the current conditions, where COVID-19 has caused so much uncertainty and devastation across much of the gambling industry.
These new themes which are largely are based on popular movies, television and game shows, are always in the works, and include reimagined versions of already popular titles. Relatively new to this flood are the games where skill is a factor in winning money. From the enhanced shooter games to the latest arcade-style hits, skill games have taken root in casinos, and their impact on the industry continues to grow each year. But if skill games aren’t your thing, rest assured – there’s no shortage of the more traditional slots to be had.
One constant among manufacturers as these new games are developed has been player research. All are bringing in players to test drive these new games and offer their feedback, with operators watching their reactions very closely, and heeding their input. That’s because those who make or operate slot machines know who makes the ultimate decision on what’s successful – the players. You. And that’s why Strictly Slots has been running its own player survey since 2001.
