It’s pretty cut and dried, online slot machines are simply a variation on the traditional casino slot machine. The short answer is there are really only a few advantages to playing online slot machines over traditional slot machines. But before get into all of that, let’s point out the biggest and most obvious pro:
All online slots and all slot games are purely digital, meaning they use random number generators (Rngs) to decide random wins or losses on each hand of cards dealt. There are no physical slots in casinos; rather, players have a remote control unit (usually computer software) which acts as a interface to the gaming system. These controls allow players to program in specific action sequences and events such as bonus rounds, where playing results are randomly decided based on previous play. Bonus rounds can be used as additional entertainment by providing players with an opportunity to earn more money after they have already won their bonus. While there is still a small percentage of casino slots which use actual slots and coin operated machines, the vast majority of slot games are purely digital and can be played from home in any internet connection.
As well as bonus rounds, online slot games feature “televised” versions. Just like traditional slot games, a player must match a randomly generated set of symbols with the positions of the spinners on the reels and hope that the symbol drawn will be a winner. This system of randomly generated outcomes applies whether or not the symbols on the reels match. A player may wish to try for one particular set of symbols or may want to try for all of the symbols available (even though there is a small chance of a draw). The choice is entirely up to the slot player.
