Little stupid title, isn't it! I could have called it also worst slots, but then Google would not appreciate the hater within me - people are searching for best slots and not the opposite. So basically, it is about the extremes. You can play the best slots and not even realize the difference between a great one and a lousy one. Just check the 20p slot or Super Hot Fruits (both from Inspired Gaming Group casino game developers). And now compare it to Strolling Staxx and Wild-O-Tron 300 (both from NetEnt casino game developers).
You can see the difference from the very beginning. The first two have a simple, stupid design with no animations and really lousy game features. The second couple of has it all taken to perfection.
Sure, the slot games from Inspired Gaming Group are not a masterpiece, but there are worse ones. To me it is Microgaming casino game developers group. I can't think of any other casino game provider, who produces as many casino games as them. Only the company alone could make a whole list of casino games. But there is a catch indeed! If you have no experience, you may not see it, but there is a simple recipe behind it.
The development and release of a slot game is normally not as easy. You spend time, money and resources - unless you have a shortcut!
Try to imagine a template. You just take the template, chose the number of rows, lines and winning combinations. Chose a word that would be easy for marketing to sell and make a really simple stupid design. While NetEnt spends much more money and resources on taking it to perfection, Microgaming bet on quantity.
I believe, both strategies are valid and since both companies are on the slots gambling market since the beginning of time, there must be one conclusion. Players simply do NOT care too much! They care about the outcome - meaning money to be won and the RTP is as far as I know through the whole gaming industry similar. Disappointed? I am a little bit.
Just to end this sad story, here are some the the casino games I really like:
Have fun and take it easy! You know it's gambling.
