Can New Age Slots Hold 20-Somethings’ Attention?

ICE 2020 unveils new attempts at attracting a younger generation of gamblers to new age “slot machines”. For more than a decade now, gambling businesses have been suffering an industrial crisis. For the first time in over a century, they are having a really hard time attracting the youngest generation of gambling-aged adults to casinos. Those who do come are not impressed with slot machines, and it’s threatening to bite an enormous amount of revenue out of the market. The Millennial generation just isn’t interested in staring blankly at a game while myriad symbols dance down the screen; maybe awarding a prize, maybe not. They find slot machines boring, monotonous, and quite frankly, pointless. They are more likely to enjoy table games – especially card games – where at least some degree of interaction exists. But even these aren’t grabbing their attention for long. The problem for casinos is that … Continue reading

The Truth About Free Casino Apps

Why even the best free slot app is dramatically unrealistic. There are literally thousands upon thousands of free slot machine apps on the Google Play and iTune app stores. It’s crazy how many results come up when you search for things like slots and casino games. We’ll never know exactly how many there are, because the results for any given search on Google Play stops at 250. I find it especially troubling that you’re not allowed to sort them by review ratings, but that’s besides the point of today’s topic – the lack of realism in free slot machine apps. Ask anyone who’s played these ‘social casino games’, and they’ll tell you something they don’t like about them; something that makes them unrealistic. The most common reason circulated is the belief that free slots games have a higher return to player (RTP) than the real money editions. It is always … Continue reading

They called them Live Casinos. The software company’s job was to take a warehouse and turn it into a real casino studio.

Are mobile live casinos the final frontier for gambling in Canada? There’s no denying that gambling is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world. Not for the gamblers, mind you, but for the owners and operators of gambling establishments; casinos, card rooms, bingo halls, race tracks, sports books, etc. Billions of dollars pass through Canada’s commercial casinos every year, and it’s been this way since the activity was legalized so many decades ago.

Flash Casinos to Disappear by Late 2020

Gone in a Flash: HTML5 open web tech to power 100% iGaming in 2020. Anyone who’s browsed the web for ten years or more should be well aware of the impact Flash technology has had on the computer-verse. In the 1990s, it gave birth to a whole new realm of possibilities. Everything from animated graphics, to in-browser video games, to entire websites were built in Flash; all powered by the universal Adobe Flash plug-in. In 2017, Adobe announced an “end of life” for Flash to come in late 2020. At that point, updates to the multimedia software project were abandoned. In response, Google Chrome developers turned off Flash and disabled the ‘ask to run‘ option by default. Anyone wishing to run Flash, or even get a message asking to run it, would have to enable it manually in their browser – not just once, but every browsing session. Some called … Continue reading

Unusual Table Games at Online Casinos

Three unique online casino table games you should try once. There are a lot of major differences between land-based and online casinos. The most obvious, of course, is the convenience of playing online. There’s no need to travel. You can play anytime, from anywhere. Just log onto your desktop, hop on the couch with a tablet, or whip out your smartphone. But there are more subtle conveniences worth noting. The types of differences that don’t get mentioned nearly so often as quicker games, lower stakes, or higher return percentages. I’m talking about the fact that online casinos have no space limitations. Internet casinos can provide their players with as many games as they like. They will never run out of seats, no matter how many players are participating. Because of this, they don’t have to stick to the ‘most popular games’, which often means a much more interesting selection to … Continue reading
