CasinoLabRat.com comprises a team of 12 avid online casino players. We are based in both Northern and Southern hemispheres and I’d have thought we were fairly much like chalk and cheese when it comes to our casino game tastes and preferences.
The team never meets - we are virtual, and submit site content remotely.
This week I asked the crew to recommend their top slots game - at any casino, from any software provider. I found the results kinda interesting.
Of the 12, two came back immediately with fairly scathing comments including “I never play slots… slots are for the mathematically challenged.” (Wow, how useful )
Several immediately responded (as this was an open email thread) that these 2 needed to ‘get over themselves’ and cited a range of relatively recent and fairly sizable wins along with the fact that you can play for hours for very little, and sometimes it just takes one lucky spin… (yep - that sounds like a slots fan!)
Anyway, I was surprised at the consistency of the choices for “favourite slots game” from the remaining 10 members - and confirmed that none of them actually conferred to make their decisions.
Best Slots - Telling the Men from the Boys?
The guys tended towards Ultimate Fighter - a Playtech slot with bonus fight game available at BetFred Casino. Microgaming’s Stallionare came in second place with Microgaming’s 3-reel Pub Fruity third (the one with the darts bonus game). All very ‘laddish’ I thought!
Best Slots - Lady Luck!
The gals preferred Premierbet Casino’s Heaven and Hell 5-reel slot. It was unanimous except for the US based female in our team (who, due to recent US legislation changes, can’t play at this casino). This surprised me a bit as the theme is fairly dark and some of the images pretty nasty (hellish).
Second choice was not so clear cut, but Microgaming’s Cashanova and a recent release, Prime Property scored well. No romantic flowers or chocolatey themed games for our girls!
In general members of our team prefer slots games with free spin features AND bonus games and all of the crew opted for slots with top graphics. Note to slots designers: please just don’t waste our time with drossy looking games…
All players really looked forward to the new slots releases when they come out but often reverted back to old favourites once the gimick had worn off. The draw of new games releases far out weighed the incentive of casino joining bonuses.
