Technology is always advancing, and this is the same in all sectors. The idea of new slot game trends is an exciting one, and since developers are working all the time on creating new and improved versions of the traditional slot, it’s no surprise that new trends are emerging regularly. Some of the newest at Slots Racer are rather exciting, and they are there to make playing as much fun as possible. Let’s look at just a few of the very many new trends coming to the fore.
Hold & Re-Spin
In traditional fruit machines, the ones you might see in pubs and bookmakers, there is sometimes a ‘hold’ feature. This means you can keep one or more of the reels in place when you next spin. So if you had two of the big prize winning symbols land, you might want to hold those and spin the other reels to try to get whatever winning combination is needed. This wasn’t something that was possible on online slots, but manufacturers are starting to add it. After all, it puts some of the action back in the player’s hands, and that’s something that might entice even more people to get involved.
No More Reels Spinning
No more reels spinning? That can’t be right, can it? Well, it is. To a point. The spinning reels might be something that many people do enjoy, but the consensus amongst younger players is that they’re a little dull and don’t bring much excitement to the table. So for future games, there might be an option where the reels don’t spin. They would fall more like a puzzle game of the sort that the younger generation enjoy playing much more. The spinning reels won’t be done away with altogether, but they might be used less over time.
Ways To Pay
If we’re talking about slots that have a physical presence, the usual way to pay would be to insert coins. Sometimes that might be extended to notes (although in the US notes are much more usual because of the set up of their money).
New trends will see a much more cashless way of playing slots, where debit cards can be used to play instead. This will even extend to contactless so a quick tap of the card (or phone if you have the right apps installed) will be enough to start the game playing.
Be wary though: when you are playing with cash and you run out, you know your budget is spent. If you’re playing with a card it can be much easier to overspend, and this can lead to many difficulties.
ETG (electronic table games) is a new class of game that younger people seem to enjoy more than slots. We’ve already mentioned how slots might be changing to allow more interaction, and these ETGs are a prime example of this on a bigger scale. ETGs are live games which offer a bigger element of excitement overall and can mean some excellent prizes too.
