Predictions: New Slot Sites in 2018
Which way are new slot sites in 2018 going to go? Well, we have no crystal ball (we wish we did, we love betting!), but we have been working in the gambling industry for a while. We reckon we could make a few educational guesses on what we expect to see coming next:
This is very much a safe bet.
We have been gambling online for way too long now. If we told you how long we had been gambling, that would give away our age and we really do not want that!
Each year, we have seen the number of new slot sites shoot up. We have every reason to believe that this is going to continue throughout 2018. In fact, we reckon that the rate that these sites pop up will speed up even further.
Anybody who knows this industry will know that as the online world has become more competitive, the number of bonuses that companies need to have goes up too. This is because companies realise that they now need to be more competitive than ever.
We anticipate that the amount of competition out there means that the offerings from online casinos are going to be better than ever before. We are not just talking about the welcome bonuses, either.
They are great and all, but online casinos, in particular new slot sites, have a desire to keep as many people gambling on them as they can. This means that we are likely to see a rise in the number of loyalty bonuses. You will be rewarded for sticking around on the same website.
Yes. The industry has had a massive drive towards mobile gambling in the past couple of years. We only expect this to increase. Most people seem to be gambling on slot machines on their mobile device now.
It is likely that new slot sites in 2018 are going to place a heavy focus on mobile gambling. In fact, we would not be surprised if online slot sites popped up which were mainly for mobile gamers.
This is because it will allow the site’s developers to shape the website and make it the perfect playing experience for those on mobile devices. They may cater for desktop users too, but that would not be the main focus!
More effort will be going into improving the customer support systems that are in place. This, again, is down to the fact that the market is competitive. We can’t tell you the number of times we have headed to an online slot site only to find that everything bar the customer service is good. We certainly were not telling our friends and family about this.
New slot sites in 2018 are going to be all about offering the best solution for gamblers. Not just in the number of games (more on that soon), but also the way in which people experience being on their website.
Whether this is through the responsiveness of the customer service, or whether it is through how fast withdrawals and deposits are.
In the past, online slot sites tended to tie themselves to a game vendor or two. Not the best thing in the world, really. It kept costs down, but it limited the number of games that people on your site would be able to play. This is all going to change with new slot sites, we reckon.
Most new slots will understand the importance of packing your website with as many slots and other games as possible. The real money is keeping players on the website. You don’t want them to crave a game only for them to find out that you do not have it. So, expect new online slot sites in 2018 to be a ‘one stop shop’ for everything related to the world of gambling.
New Payment Methods
Our final prediction is that new online slot sites will have new payment methods. We have already seen an expansion in the past couple of years with some sites allowing cash deposits (yes, seriously, although these sites are very limited), others allowing you to deposit through your phone, and others allowing you to deposit money using Bitcoin.
What new payment methods they could implement (maybe another cryptocurrency?) is anybody’s guess, but you can bet your bottom dollar that online slots will be doing their best to grab as many customers as feasible.
