Online casinos provide different ways of controlling the speed in online slot because players have their own individual preferences. For example new players might enjoy slow games while expert players want to maximize their use of time and spin as fast as possible.
In Microgaming games there are two options. In one of them the reels stop slowly one at a time, from the first to the fifth. This way is the default for all software providers and it’s full of suspense. Quick Spin is the other option. The sequence of stopping is the same, but the speed is super fast.
Rival Gaming provides similar options – Slow and Medium, but in this case the faster option doesn’t actually change the speed much.
In Realtime Gaming games there’s a Turbo Play option. The reels are not only much faster, but also they stop simultaneously, which makes the entire outcome a complete surprise.
Vegas Technology’s solution is different. When you opt out of Animation, the reels don’t spin at all in the first place. After clicking the Spin button you immediately see the outcome. It might take away from the experience of a “real slot machine”, but for a lot of players it doesn’t matter.
Cryptologic combines the Microgaming Quick Spin with the Vegas Technology no Animation option. It offers both of them in addition to the default option, so altogether there are three.
