What are the views of experts and industry analysts? Let’s take a quick review and summary of their insights.

More skilled-based slots

The slot machine gaming industry collectively agrees that 2016 was dominated by slot machines that demanded real skills and strategy thinking from players. Both small and big time game developers produced prototypes slot that were mostly skills-based.

Top online sites such as Starburst from NetEnt offered games that had a lot of creative infusion of techniques and styles of classic arcade themed games that were popular with mobile and home video game players.

This trend is expected to go several places on the hi-tech ladder as a major feature of the online slot gaming trends for 2017. Developers are also showcasing new licensed games and betting concepts styled after the communal arcade pattern.

One manufacturer based in California, The Glendale, introduced the Gambit, which is a ground breaking game dedicated to upping the skills and strategies required to win games, while still keeping the fun and passion. 

More hi-tech game apps with richer game experience

Experts say top-drawer, hi-tech developers, are taking greater interest in the online casino gaming market, as it gathers steam and gains more popularity. New, futuristic software developers will take over the leadership of this sub-market of the online slot scene and develop games with entirely new technology that will be light years ahead of the outmoded manufacturers. That means rich game experience, more fun and entertainment, and of course winning opportunities for the skilled and ready.

Virtual reality games

The year 2016 saw mobile online slot gaming going to new levels, with more responsive and better user-experience on various mobile devices. It was an exciting trend that players enjoyed on the go with top gaming sites as www.luckstars.com.

One of the biggest game changers anticipated this year will be the continued rollout of HTML casino games.  This is expected to be followed by Virtual Reality online slot games that bring a new meaning to rich user experience.

Granted that it will require huge funding, because of the expensive hardware with just the mobile version only compatible with a limited number of phone brands.  The prototypes that have been released give a glimpse of the total fun and entertainment value that Virtual Reality online slot gaming will bring to the scene, as well as the subsequent high traffic  and profit it is expected to drive.

Analysts are looking up to Apple to lead the revolution with a Virtual Reality solution, that would increase the number of players and encourage mass production of tailored games just for VR. Even if that process is not complete in 2017 for many phone brands, the course would definitely be set this year.
