Every day many thousands of people log in to an online casino to play a few games, relax, have fun, and of course, perhaps even win some cash while they are there. Most casinos offer a variety of games, including the typical table games like baccarat, roulette, craps, and blackjack, often there are several versions of each, plus video poker, live dealer rooms and sometimes a handful of more unusual games such as keno, bingo, scratchcards, and sic bo.

Some even many online casinos promote slots with free bonuses.

However, at many casinos the most popular category of games by far are the slots. If you are curious about why this is the case keep reading, because that's what we are looking at here, and the answers are very interesting.

Online slots are easy to play
Although they obviously vary between games most online slots are designed using the same basic model. This makes it easy for players to choose a slot and simply play, without having to learn and remember complicated rules. Some slot fans prefer the games designed by a particular software provider as they have become familiar with their style and the quirky signature extras many choose to add.

Online slots offer variety
There are thousands of online slot titles across dozens of categories, which is a huge part of their appeal. Some of the most popular themes are:

 - Traditional/classic one-armed bandit style with old style symbols
 - Fantasy - covering everything from vampires and mermaids to dragons and fairies
 - Historical - often  about Ancient Egypt, King Arthur, Robin Hood and so on
 - Movie icons - games based around films such as Rambo, Jurassic World, Lord of the Rings, and Batman
 - Money- often these slots are sparkly, flash and set in Vegas
 - Music - they could feature big band names or be more general

Online slots are flexile when wagering
There are plenty of slots featured in online casinos which have very wide wagering rates, so those who like to play cautiously can enjoy playing slots as much as those who are looking to make substantial wagers throughout a game. Some slots are known for paying out large amounts of cash less often, and others for doing the opposite, so there's something to suit all tastes.

Online slots are captivating
The package of amazing visuals, a strong theme and interesting storyline, with atmospheric music and steady wins are the perfect ingredients for escapism, and in most cases they require very little input from the player. So rather than having to make conscious decisions in games like blackjack, online slots allow you to zone out a little, and truly relax. Some people believe that slots provide a kind of familiar comfort, and for very little effort - basically just setting up autoplay if you really are feeling lazy - players get the hypnotic reel spinning, and the very possible chance of winning.

Wins, of course, bring flashing lights or special sounds, reinforcing our easily won achievement, and increasing the feeling of wellbeing.
