Advantages of Playing Online Slots

Slots have always been one of the most popular casino games, with land-based machines taking up a huge chunk of the floor space at brick-and-mortar casinos. Of course, the advent of online slots in the UK has really ramped up their popularity, and with more games added to online casinos regularly, there doesn’t seem to be any slowing down.

So, what’s the difference between playing online slots and playing at a slot machine in person? Why are the online versions so popular? Let’s take a moment to find out.

The difference between online and in-person slots

There are plenty of things that set slots online apart from physical slot machines. The biggest (and most obvious) difference between the two is that one is played in a casino or other location on a machine. In contrast, the other is played online on a mobile device, tablet, or computer.

There are other more subtle differences, however. The return to player (RTP) percentage is normally higher for online games than slot machines; understandably, the graphics are better, too. Then there’s the sheer number of games to choose from when you play online rather than at a casino. 

What are the advantages of online slots?

Online games are growing in popularity continuously, and there’s a good reason for that. Here are some of the benefits of playing slots online.


Convenience is undoubtedly the most important factor in the popularity of slots at online casinos. We live in a world of instant gratification, and online gaming appeals to this new customer demand. 

You no longer have to hop on the bus and the underground or drive a car to the casino to enjoy an evening of slots. You can simply open your computer or mobile device, log in to your preferred site, and start spinning. This obviously saves time and money and makes a whole lot more sense if you only want to play a game or two.

The payment options for online games also make putting a deposit in and getting paid out incredibly easy and convenient. Whether you’re looking to pay by credit card, debit card, online bank transfer, Apple Pay, or anything in between, the best online casinos will have a wide range of convenient payment options for you to choose from.

Choice of games

A person celebrates winning an online slot jackpot.

One of the most limiting factors for slot machines found in casinos is the size of the establishment. Slot machines are big and take up a lot of space, so it makes sense that while a casino will try to put as many machines as they can inside, they cannot fit umpteen thousand.

For this reason, online casinos have a huge array of real online slots for players to choose from. Tens of thousands of games can be stored on a site, and players will always have the option of playing a new game. Variety is the spice of life, after all, and it’s one of the key points that keeps players coming back.

This also means that you won’t have to wait around for someone else to stop playing the game that you want.

Rewards and incentives

Many online casinos will run excellent promotion campaigns, provide players with bonuses and incentives for particular games, and more. There are so many opportunities for players to plump up their bankroll without paying a cent.

Flexibility of stake size

One of the more attractive prospects of online games that allows them to appeal to a wide audience is that they come with a flexible stake size. The stake size is the amount that players wager on each spin, which could be as little as 10p or as high as a couple of hundred quid. This means that players of all different means and backgrounds can enjoy a slot game should they choose.

Higher payouts at online tournaments

As if playing slots could get any more exciting, then online casinos went and added slot tournaments. How exactly does a slot tournament work? Well, you won’t exactly be playing against other people in the games themselves. However, your overall score on a particular slot game will determine where you land on a leaderboard. 

Players place a predetermined amount of money on a particular game in the tournament and play for a set amount of time. The amount of “money” they win during their time will go to the leaderboard, and the person with the highest score will win an impressive amount of money.

The best online slots selection

As the UK’s premier online casino, The Phone Casino has a wide selection of slots for you to choose from. Here are a couple of the most popular types of slots on the site and why you should give them a try.

Classic slots

These are the basic 3-reel slot games with one payline that are perfect for beginners. They’re simple to play and full of nostalgic cherries, 7, and BAR symbols. 

Multiple payline slots

Modern video slots tend to have more than one payline, which means more lines for players to land a winning combination.

Progressive slots

Progressive jackpot slots are slots that generally have the biggest payout. This is because the same game is linked across multiple sites, and players’ deposits build up as different players choose the game. Eventually, one lucky player will walk away having triggered a massive jackpot.
