Online Slots: Should the Theme Be a Big Consideration?

One of the things you can rest assured of in any online casino is that you are going to be inundated with choices when it comes to playing various games. And there is no genre of games where this is more prevalent than in slots. Because they're so popular, online casinos make hundreds of different slot games available, and they come in all shapes and sizes, including the classic slots, multiple-reel slots, video slots and even interactive slots.

What is it that you like about the slot games? What are the things that are going to make you happy when you play? These are certainly the questions you should be asking yourself before you log onto your favorite online casino, and because you are probably going to spend so much time in front of the screen, it makes sense to spend some time and effort looking for what you really want out of your slot game. So maybe we have a few suggestions for you:

How about the theme? That is something that sets the tone as far as the atmosphere is concerned. Some of the slot games have themes that are probably a little more dynamic and exciting than others. Maybe you want something relaxed, like a tropical setting. Perhaps you are looking for something that is connected to popular culture, such as a slot that is associated with a popular movie or television show. But this is part of the very fabric of the game that you are going to be playing, so the theme is most definitely a consideration.

We have heard people say that sometimes the theme itself is directly tied into what your expectations out of the online slot game should be. In other words, the more "expensive" the theme, the less of a payout, in terms of percentage of overall dollars spent, will be expected out of the game. Why? Because of the fact that it costs much more to bring a celebrity or movie-themed slot to the table than it does other kinds of online slot games. We are talking about the costs with regard to the developer, which ultimately get passed down to the licensing fees that are charged to the casino for having a particular game. Let's face it – it does mean something in terms of branding and familiarity to have a slot that is based on a movie like "Scarface" or "iron Man" or a popular board game like "Monopoly" then it would be something that was more generic. This has to do with the entertainment companies that license these things out to the designers like Microgaming, Playtech and the rest. Those costs get passed on, and it's got to be paid for somewhere.

We're not sure there is a direct correlation there, although we will say that with the extra volume and online casino expects to generate through games like this, it could all even out at the end.
