Expected Changes In Slots In 2020



The slots industry is constantly changing and judging by its history of evolution, it won’t be stopping any time soon. Slots started as a mechanical gaming machine with one lever and has since moved on to become more digital. If you are interested in how slots at have changed up until now and any future changes, keep reading.

Progressive Jackpots

Can you believe that the very first slot machines had chewing gum for prizes? Unbelievable! Today players can win progressive jackpots worth millions of dollars. More and more slots in 2020 will be featuring progressive jackpots.

Progressive jackpots refer to slot jackpots where a percentage of every wager contributes to the jackpot. This means that the jackpot grows until it is won.

Virtual Reality Slots

Creating virtual reality slot machines has been in the works for the last couple of years. Virtual Reality slots will require the use of some extra gadgets. One of these is a VR device. Other gadgets, such as joysticks, can also be connected to the VR device. While initially these machines were only accessible to a few people, in 2020 it will become way more accessible to the ordinary player. This will in turn contribute to the growth of Virtual Reality Slots.

Multiple Play Grids

Since the beginning of slots, many players could only choose between either three or five-reel slots, which were all located on one grid. In recent years new designs featuring 2 grids have been introduced. One example of such a slot is Planet of the Apes.

It is expected that slots with more than one grid will become more popular this year. On top of that, the grids could also differ in sizes. One might be 5 reels and three rows and the other five reels and 6 rows.

However, a slot with multiple grids does not mean you place two different bets. You only place one bet. The second grid is like a bonus where you can win extra cash without actually raking out more cash.

1. Preventing identity theft. The particular slot will only work when it recognizes the player’s face. Only you can thus play on your account.

2. Preventing players from creating multiple accounts (for whatever reason). Sometimes players create multiple accounts just to get the sign-up bonuses. That way they don’t spend their own money.

3. Prevent money laundering. 

4. Creating personalized gaming experiences. Wouldn’t it be great to get a game based on your facial expression?

5. Protect vulnerable people. People with identified gambling problems can be denied access to slots.

More Skill-Based Slots

The slots industry has exciting changes coming in 2020. Are you ready?
