UK Fruit Machine Online Popularity Surges
It’s understandable that the amazing improvement and depth of online fruit (or slot) machine offerings online that the land-based equivalents were going to suffer.
However, no-one predicted that the sheer popularity of the best online slots – such as Rainbow Riches and other Online UK Fruit Machines- would be so pronounced, as the last couple of years has proved.
Consultant James Purcell, a leading analyst in the leisure industry, commented: “It is simply down to online casinos offering exactly the same slots as their amusement arcade equivalents, down the same attention to detail: the graphics, game play, everything.”
“Add to this the safety and comfort of home, compared to the seedy image of arcades – which still prevails – then it’s really plain to see the online appeal.”
But what about pubs; the the industry is struggling to halt the 3-4% year-on-year reduction in returns? This was for different reasons, cited James.
“Deal of No Deal has undoubtedly stepped in to halt the tide. But, sadly, this is proving a false dawn. Professional gamblers can easier empty these machines with their inside knowledge, which puts regular players off. Their technique is simple and quite cunning. They leave around £15 in the machine – to avoid emptying it and drawing attention to the fact it’s empty – ready to ‘rinse’ the next time.”
“So, ironically, it’s the professionals that win, and not the pubs or the casual player. However, they’re doing nothing illegal; so they get my grudging respect!”
“The best place to play a UK Fruit Machine is online – it’s totally random, regulated, and therefore totally fair.”
