Fruit Machine Popularity On The Rise
With the vast improvement and wider selection of online fruit machines, its real casino equivalents are feeling the losses. However, no one ever predicted that fruit machines such as Rainbow Riches are so provocative that the trend over the last couple of years strongly backed this development.
Rainbow Riches is a five-reel, ten-praline video slot machine game from WagerWorks that can be played for free or for real money in denominations as low as £0.01 and as high as £5.00 per coin and one to five coins per payline.
It is one of the most successful and popular games in UK fruit machines history and its online version, Rainbow Riches Win Big Shindig offers all the excitement and big payouts that its pub version offers.
Rainbow Riches has a Super Jackpot that can be as high as 25,000 coins and this can be triggered by the Rainbow Riches Jackpot symbols. If you get a Leprechaun Hat symbol on the first, third and fifth reels in one spin, you will have a chance to play the Pick Me Bonus feature game.
This bonus game gives you a chance to play the Pots of Luck Bonus Game. At the Pots of Luck Bonus Game, a dancing leprechaun is surrounded by gold, silver and bronze pots. You will have to choose one of those pots to win up to 25,000 coins.
Being one of the top analysts in the leisure industry, consultant James Purcell said that it is up to the online casinos to offer the same fruit machines which are virtual replicas of their arcade competitors. These online fruit machines often take the same graphics and game play that the real machines offer.
Another advantage of fruit machines is that people can play it at the comfort of their own home as compared to having a visit to real casinos and playing the fruit machines there. Add the fact that arcades are perceived as seedy and it is obvious why online fruit machines have gained the advantage.
Also, the pub fruit machines industry is struggling that they are experiencing a three to four percent revenue reduction.
James cited that the downfall is caused by professional fruit machine pub players that can easily win on these machines through their inside knowledge. This enables them to get big payouts which empty the treasury of the real fruit machines.
These relatively empty prizes are turning off players since they leave around $15 in one machine to avoid the fact that it is empty. Therefore, it is still the professional players and not the regular pub players who win big. Despite their tactic being legal, this alleged technique by professional players has discouraged a lot of players who have set their sights on online fruit machines.
