It’s time for the battle of the UK online slots – in this day and age there are two main winners in the slots world and we’re going to be putting them to the test. Today’s battle? Online slot machines versus offline slots! Which is better and are there any benefits for either? These are both questions we’re going to be answering, so read on to find out which comes up on top!
Classic Offline Slots
When people hear the words ‘offline slots’ they often think about old-school mechanical slot machines. These are classic examples, but not the only kind! We have 3D video slots in casinos and even virtual reality slots, and despite how futuristic they are they are both offline! This means that you will need to go to a land-based venue such as a casino to give it a try! These days loads of people play slots online, but they’re missing out on some of the good stuff – there’s loads of reasons people prefer to play offline, including:
– The atmosphere and enjoyment of visiting a casino
– Catching up with friends whilst playing some slots
– The technical simplicity, with many people simply preferring to pay by coins
– The sound of the coins clattering when you win – nothing beats it!
However, it must be said that although offline slots have a place in our heart, there’s tons of things it’s missing from the cutting-edge online slots. Let’s take a look!
Online Slot Machines
We really do love offline slots but they’re a bit stuck in the past. Online slot machines first came about in the late 90’s and they have been dominating the slot machine industry ever since. Due to the popularity of online slots there are more online slot machine developers and websites than ever before, resulting in quite the fruitful competition! This has resulted in tons of benefits:
– An unfathomable amount of game variety that couldn’t physically fit in a casino
– Fantastic and competitive special offers and bonuses that are rare to find at a land-based venue
– Glossy 3D graphics
– Cutting edge features and new game modes that won’t be developed into a physical slot machine for a long time!
Online slot machines are simply more futuristic and thus have better features, better jackpots – it’s simply a new and improved form of our classic slot machine friends. It must be said that there are negatives – it can get a bit technical to set up, and you miss out on all the fun of being in a physical casino with your friends. However, remember that there is no reason you can’t do both!
So, who won?
You’re probably thinking that we are going to say that online slot machines are the clear winner here but honestly, we don’t think there is a winner. Sure, offline slot machines aren’t as futuristic and online slots have way more special features, but why not just play both? Stick to online slots and whenever you get that casino craving, go ahead and get stuck in to the offline slots! Winning!
