Since we have been talking about a few different online casino slot games already on our website, today we would like to take a closer look into how those games have been changing since they first arrived in the online casinos world. The slots have always been the backbone of any modern online casino, that is indeed still the case today. As an example, many online casinos offer thousands of different games to their players, but it is in the slot section, where you will always find the biggest game selection. We have never seen an online casino that does not at least offer several hundred different slots. The transformation of the games over the past few years has just been remarkable.
Let’s just take a look at the graphics. Remember the graphics of the early slot machines in the first online casinos available? You could clearly see the squares and as far as animations, we could only dream of those. It felt like you were playing on an old Gameboy. Especially during the past two to three years, the technology advanced at a very fast pace and the slots became a world of their own inside an online casino. The graphics are sharp with an incredible resolution, on top of that come animations and even short movie scenes. The sound effects are perfectly adjusted to fit the right scene during the gameplay and the simple flashing of letters or numbers have been replaced by a breathtaking firework of colors. But there is more because advanced technologies brought new capabilities to the gameplay itself.
The old gameplay of matching symbols on a straight line to land a win is basically totally erased on any modern slot in an online casino. Those modern slots offer winning combination possibilities we could only dream off. Some slots pay winnings on different winning lines across your screen. Others have more than 100 different ways on how to form a winning line. But the real highlight of those games are the bonus features. They revolutionized the whole gaming excitement in any casino out there.
Bonus features are the place, where the real big winnings are hidden along with those animations and graphic special effects we mentioned earlier. At first, the developers added free spins as a bonus round. During those free spins, your winnings can sometimes be doubled or even tripled. However, when we are talking about the bonus features of a slot machine nowadays, they come with three or even four different bonus features. Those free spins are simply the standard and random appearing special wins, a gamble feature or a symbol replacing feature are added on the most popular slots.
As you can see, slots changed over the years massively giving you new ways to land a big win. Additionally, they offer entertainment on a whole new level with their appearance alone. With that thought in mind, we can only speculate what the slots in the online casinos will look like in a few years’ time. But that also contributes to the thrill, doesn’t it?
