    Question Why you play online slot games?

    A big part of online casino gaming (just like real-world casino gaming) is slot play. For this week's poll I ask if you play online slot games and why. Maybe you play online slots primarily because you want to be able to write reviews based on playing games yourself. Maybe you play online slots for the entertainment value and in hopes of winning. Maybe both, or maybe you don't play online slot games online at all.

    In addition to voting in the poll, be sure to share your experiences with online slot games.

    The reason slot games are on my mind today is because the Casino Beats Slots Festival is about to begin. It takes place this Wednesday, March 18th. The festival is for affiliates, operators, and gaming professionals and provides you the opportunity to try out a selection of new cutting-edge titles.

    All you need to do is register using the link below, drop into the Slots Festival any time, and test out the games in free-play mode at your leisure.

    If you do spin the wheels at the slot festival, I invite you to share your thoughts here.

    I actually chose: Mostly for the fun of it but sometimes for research and review for a few reasons.

    The rare times I find myself in a brick and mortar casino, I play slots: Entirely for the fun of it (and with a slim chance of winning).

    I really do enjoy playing many of the video slots that have a story or type of quest to them, bonus rounds that have a chance of winning and doing something challenging, like picking a prize, jumping a lemming off a cliff, killing zombies, or any number of other somewhat silly type things.

    But also, doing so in a live casino when someone else is with you adds to that, since if they are playing in an adjacent machine you both can share in the excitement and fun a bit if the other person happens to be the one that gets the bonus round etc.

    While some of that exists to a small degree online, for me playing online is far more a singular experience, and does not have the same "shared experience" that slots in a brick and mortar does.

    When I do play slots online, it often starts out as researching a software provider or specific game, but I almost always will try to end the session at some point, searching out or playing one of the many video slots that quench my want of the story line or more involved type bonus rounds where I am under the impression that the choices I make help determine the prize or bonus.

    I have chosen for fun.

    Slots are just amazing and in order to write good reviews for them , you need to have an idea what and how it is happening.

    Long ago I have played slots in brick-and-mortar casinos , chasing jackpots or just having fun with a cigarette in one hand an whiskey in the another.

    Play slots with limit , like time limit or budget limit .

    I my experience , I have seen how people start and continue losing all they have like : flats, depos in banks, ruining thier families etc.

    When the fun stops, just quit..

    For fun and reviews.
    While the first pick is obvious, the second is needed. IMHO, if I want to succeed in the slots niche with my sites, at least I need to have a clue about the games I'm promoting.

    The slot machines are designed for you to lose. The casino always has the upper advantage. They make it look like your about to win, but then suddenly, it’s all gone in the blink of an eye. There are no winners in the long haul. Although it’s possible to win every now and then, but it’s just not as simple as it seems. That’s why I don’t play online slots.

    Sometimes for fun, but mostly for research and reviews.

    As I work with review websites I need to search a lot of new info to generate the content.

    But still sometimes it's really funny to play some 3d slots.

    I really like how new technologies grew in the recent years.

    As most of you I play to do research and reviews, but I also enjoy playing for fun.
