Online slots have taken over the industry of gambling at the expense of land-based slots. The wide variety of games as well as the access at any time, from any place are advantages that land-based slots just can’t compete.
However, the world of online slots isn’t perfect, it has its drawbacks, too. According, to Michael Bauer, CFO/CGO at Greentube, suppliers should always keep their software up to date if they want to continue providing exceptional services to their users.
Bauer commented that mobile phones have become the main device for slots playing the last couple of years. But, this phenomenon has not come without sacrifice regarding the user experience. The considerably smaller screens of smartphones compared to desktop and their less powerful hardware alter the gaming experience standards. Also, Internet connection problems, as well as sound performance, are not so stable in mobile phones.
Bauer also referred to the disorientation problem that individuals face when they play slots on the smartphone, as external factors are affecting them. Slots providers should overcome the problems and continue to retain player interest.
Nonetheless, the gains that players reap when they choose to play via their smartphones are significant, too. Greentube’s CFO/CGO explained that the 24/7 availability regardless of the place or the situation the player is involved, makes the difference. The easy access to slots proves to be the key factor of player preference for online gaming over land-based.
