Instant win games are cropping up like nobodies business at popular gaming sites such as 888Games and Betfair. In 2011 there are literally dozens of gaming sites offering more than 100 different categories of games each such as Cleopatra’s slots, Hangman, Spin it and Golden Fortunes.
But what makes these types of games so popular online and makes new players want to play them so much?
The first facet that springs to mind is the huge scale and variety if instant games, ranging from slots, table, number, keno, bingo, scratch card, sports and quiz games, to TV themed games and classics like Monopoly, Cluedo and Hi Lo. Bet365 Games boasts more than 200 unique games for players to play in both real money and Demo format. New games are released on a monthly basis too, the latest versions for example includes Caribbean Stud Poker, Rock Star, Gold Rally, Mr Vegas, Desert Treasure and House of Fun.
The ability to open up these games and play them immediately in your browser is another massive advantage that this form of gambling and wagering your money has over others. Unlike online poker for example, the online gaming sites utilise both Java and Flash software which means that you can open up and start all of these real money games in your computer browser or mobile phone without having to download any chunky software or files. This not only saves you time from opening up and playing games but it also means that you can play these on other people’s computers very quickly just by logging into your account.
The huge promotions, cash prizes, and bonuses are arguably another important stimulus for the rise of this industry. Many sites are giving away free £5 no deposit bonuses or 24hr no loss bonuses in order to encourage new players to sign up. Further more, players tend to receive rolling deposit bonuses worth between £100 up to £250 that are credited to their account. The players rewards and VIP schemes for regular players makes certain gaming sites even more popular. As an example, Betfair Arcade gives every play a special Bonus Bar to fill up and once they successful do this they’ll receive £5 in free bets to play across their wide selection of 50+ casino games.
Finally, instant games are fun, visually interesting and exciting to play. Many of the rules mimic those of games found in touch screen fruit box and pub box machines found in bars and pubs across the UK. Even famous games such as Spot the Difference, Hi Lo, Sports Quiz games like Match of the Day can be played and test your knowledge to win cash prizes worth anywhere between £1 and £100,000 depending on the type of game and how much money you initially decide to wager.
