Online slots and online casinos have become the wave of the future for the development of casinos. Long gone are expensive, weekend trips to far away casinos that cost much more than the initial gambling cost. Instead, online casinos have a huge variety of casino games that can be played for free from the comfort of home.

Thus, this has understandably become a huge industry. Online slots make up a large portion of the games that people choose to play at these online casinos. There is a wide variety of games and they can offer tons of fun and excitement. In 2019, there have already been some great new releases of slot machine games. The remaining five months of the year will see even more great slot releases, which will be briefly recapped in this article.
There are tons of slots being released in 2019, so be sure to check a more in-depth source for the full details. Additionally, there are some trends that appear to be taking hold this season. ‘Megaways’ slots are becoming increasingly popular this year, as more and more developers are creating them. These slots essentially allow players to win a slot machine in any direction, vertical, horizontal, or diagonal. This can create a huge variety of possible combinations and wins; which players have been enjoying recently. In 2019, volatility on most slots will also be increased, as the greater risk but greater chance of a volatile slot seems to entice players. Expect to see 2019 slots become increasingly volatile and be aware of this change.
Technology is increasing rapidly across all sectors, not just the online casino industry. People’s screens are getting better, computers have more processing power, and phones are incredibly impressive. Thus, the quality of slot games is expected to increase as well. Slots will become fully high definition and less glitchy. Complex graphics and deeper stories will also be possible due to the rapid technological increases. Because more and more developers are entering the slot game market, games need to be more attractive and better than they were in the past. This increased competition coupled with tech increases have resulted in beautiful slot games.
Finally, the last trend in the slot machine market in 2019 will be mobile development. Not only mobile development, however, but it will come first in most cases. Mobile users at online casinos have increased exponentially in the past few years, thus casinos and game developers alike are catering to this userbase. When online casinos first began, few casinos and fewer games were able to be easily played on mobile devices – if they could be played at all. Now, mobile devices will be the first stage of slot development, followed by desktops. This paradigm shift is expected to be carried throughout the rest of 2019 and into 2020.
Developers like Net Entertainment (NetEnt), Play n Go, and Microgaming have increased their already wide name recognition and development success. These companies are the titans of the online casino game development and are expected to stay that way. They have had great releases this year and are expecting to have more before the new year. Big Time Gaming, Push Gaming, and Red Tiger Gaming are newer developers that have released great games this year, so expect to see more releases from these up and comer developers. Each of these companies also has some story-type slots in the works to be released this year. This
