Here we are. It’s the end of 2013 and we’re at the tail end of another successful year for casino players. At Slots of Vegas, we handed out a lot of money in the form of free chips to new signups. We did the same on Facebook, handing out freebies to old friends. And a big part of winning those free chips and bonuses comes by trying out our new games.
So that got us thinking. Which games were the most popular ones in 2013? We took a look at our data to see which casino games were played the most and which ones were most frequented for repeat play. The results include some new games and some old favorites, proving that a great thing never loses its spark.
Remember the poker craze? It’s still pretty big, but when the big three poker sites went belly-up in 2011 and the US market didn’t really have much of a selection, people stopped playing online. But now that a few states have legalized online poker (including New Jersey and Nevada) more and more people are taking an interest in poker. And not just Texas Hold’em. Video poker, specifically Caribbean Stud Poker, have been hugely popular online in 2013 at Slots of Vegas. Our findings suggest the same is true at land-based casinos on Las Vegas Boulevard too.
So it turns out that people really do love the community aspect that comes with playing live. Up until 2012, if you wanted to play roulette online, you got a great experience, but it wasn’t authentic. What makes roulette so fun is the camaraderie of all the people at the same table as you. But online? It’s just you. But in 2013, that all changed at Slots of Vegas with Multi-Player Roulette. Instead of sitting down to play by yourself, you get to play at the same table as a dozen other people from every corner of the globe. It was our most popular table game in 2013 and it’ll probably be that way in 2014 too.
There’s a reason NASCAR is one of the top sports in the US, why Need for Speed as one of the best selling video games of all time, and why people love the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. People can’t get enough of high-octane racing. And our online slots adventure Dream Run proved to be one of the most popular slots of 2013.
Those were the top three games of 2013. But the truth is that all of the games offered at Slots of Vegas proved to be pretty popular. The beautiful thing about our slots and casino site is that you can test out games without risking money. So go ahead. Play around for as long as you like. You might even discover the next big thing for 2014.
