Along with social media use, Mobile gaming has been one of the big successes of the smartphone and tablet era with – device owners have an ever growing selection of games from all genres to play and developers of all sizes have an equal chance of releasing ‘the next big thing’.
One of the most popular genres are the free video slots games of which seemingly thousands are available for both Apple or an Android devices.
One such game is Slotomania which has more than 133,396 ratings in the iTunes AppStore and an average score of four stars.
The game is an AppStore veteran which first launched in by developers Playtika in December of 2010. It has been on and off radar but these days; it’s getting a steady stream of active users making it one of the most played slot games and one of the fastest growing games in its category.
There are also rumours that Harrah’s, a casino brand which is under Caesars Entertainment Corporation, has acquired part of the app’s developer.
The game itself has recently had an update which spurred us to have a look and review the app.
Like many titles in this genre, the app seeks to mimic the sounds and looks of real-life Las Vegas casinos, with a bright interface to help draw players in and hold their attention and some zippy background music.
Players start the game with 200 coins that they can bet on the Farm Fortune, a slot machine that features farming icons that are quite large and cartoony. Players choose the amount of cash that they can bet on the 3X5 grid.
Unlocking Slot Machine Games
This game aims for a wide appeal by featuring different slot machines which become available depending on the player’s skill level.
Individual slot machines can be levelled up and players gain experience points when betting in a specific slot machine, new slots are unlocked upon reaching a certain level and introduce new themes, more lines and bigger prizes.
Coin bonuses and Free Spins
One of the features of this slot machine game that makes it engaging is that you will get free bonuses in the form of coins when you pass a level. Plus, you also have the ability to send free spins to your friends, adding a social dynamic to the gameplay.
Much like other slot machine games in the market, there are free rewards , including coin bonuses, for players every few hours to keep players engaged and interested in having ‘just one more turn’.
With a decent look and feel and engaging game play, we think this is one of the more fun slot apps available for smartphones and tablets, and as a free download (there are in-app purchases) is well worth a look.
