Slot machines have seen an increase in their popularity in the last few years, especially in the US, and especially on the iPhone. Several companies have launched social casino games, with Slotomania, built by Israeli developer Playtika being one of the most popular of all. But how does it compare to the real thing? How does it fare against, All Slots Casino, a well-known real money operator?
Let’s take a look at both and find out.
The Slotomania app is available on Android, Windows Phone and iOS smartphones and tablets, as well as on desktop through Facebook or the slotomania.com website. To play, you need to connect using your Facebook account, or one created at the website.
The games at the All Slots Casino are also available on all mobile platform, but not as a native app, but as a web app. Players don’t need to download anything, but simply navigate to http://www.allslotscasino.com/ to play. The games are built in HTML5, which means they run equally well on all devices. You can play All Slots Casino games in a desktop browser, too, without the need for an account – but for a limited time only. Besides, they are also available for download on Windows-based PCs.
Slotomania currently has around 100 slot machines in its offer – and slot machines only. When you start playing, you only have access to two titles, with the rest being unlocked as you progress in the game – gather cash, XP, and rewards. Playtika periodically adds new games to the collection.
The All Slots Casino has a library of over 100 titles available for mobile players, including slot machines (over 80 titles), table games and others. But the number of games available for desktop browser players exceeds 300, and the downloadable suite has more than 750 games you can choose from. New games are added to the All Slots desktop and mobile library every month.
Slotomania is free, right? Well, yes and no. If you run out of coins, you can purchase more for amounts between $2 and $50. Besides, you are ‘treated’ with occasional ads when playing on mobile.
All Slots is a real money online casino, but it also has a “practice mode” option which is completely free – and ad-free, on all platforms. If you run out of coins in practice mode, you can simply head over to the Cashier and add more to your bankroll.
Microgaming, the developer responsible for the software at the All Slots Casino, is an industry veteran with over 20 years of experience under its belt. Playtika, no matter how enthusiastic it might be about game development, it is no match for such an experienced operator as All Slots Casino.
