Canadian slot machines trends for 2021

slot machines trends

Like the video gaming industry, the iGaming and Canadian casino sectors are also changing. The year 2021 should therefore bring its share of new developments, not only in terms of the topics covered but also from a technological point of view. Leading online casinos constantly try to update the range of casino games to provide its customers with the latest and best developments in this area. In fact, Canadian gambling online casinos like PlayAmo would not be able to maintain their market dominance if they would rest on their laurels. To put it bluntly, innovation is simply something that is expected of them.

So what will be the slot machine trends? Find it out by reading the information below.

1. Mobile slot games, again and again

Not so long ago, online slot machines were primarily intended for a browser-based audience. That’s why most major casino sites offered games optimized with Flash or HTML5. Of course, this has changed in recent years, as the focus has shifted to the mobile world.

In 2021, it should therefore come as no surprise to see an increasing number of iGaming sites offering applications directly for cell phones (Android (.apk) and iOS). Note that in 2020, more than half of the internet traffic came from cell phones, so this is a windfall not to be missed. This is also seen by another trend: “free spins” have become a key marketing argument for online casino slots.

2. The gamification of slot machines

Online casino slots tend to mutate to take on the appearance of classic video games. As a result, a casino may offer free online slots that are calibrated for casual gamblers. In other words, they are seen as mini-games that are played to pass the time. The topics covered are reminiscent of the video gaming industry, such as: Zeus Slot Machine, or Candy Bar. This is also the case for movie franchises with themes related to Marvel superheroes, for example.

3. Virtual reality

In 2020, we saw the beginnings of virtual reality in online casinos. This technology allows for much greater immersion of the gambler, who will be able to visit a casino as if they were there. For slot machines, this includes spinning the wheels through the movement of the player’s body. The jackpots then become more visually striking, thanks to the effects generated. The technology is still not well developed, and we will have to wait before seeing fully modeled casinos offered to the general public.

4. Crypto money

Virtual currencies are booming. In 2020, the breakthrough of Bitcoin has been particularly commented, and its use has become more democratic. This is the reason why cryptography is becoming part of the iGaming sector. The bridges between the two domains are numerous: Bitcoin is thus based on valuable tokens, just like casinos.

Slot machines using Bitcoin are also emerging, and the other crypto money systems are expected to be gradually integrated. In addition, this allows the use of electronic purses not linked to state currencies. Such a solution offers more flexibility to service providers.

The year 2021 will therefore be rich in changes for slot machines! If there is one thing that should be remembered, it is that slot machines are becoming part of a field that was previously closed to them: that of video games. So the boundaries should continue to blur.
