Online casinos have always been popular in South Africa. Initially it was the download versions which required you to download the software onto your PC, and then play directly from within that casino client. However now players don’t really want to download casino clients anymore and would rather play casino games on their mobile phones. So, as the way that users have changed how they access online casinos, has the actual games that they play also changed?
The simple answer is no. The types of games that players are playing now are the same types of games that players were playing 2 years ago. Slots are still exceptionally popular as well as roulette type games. Card games still bring in crowds, especially in the evenings.
What is different now, is that players are busy playing lots of live casino games. This are often also referred to as live dealer games, as they have a live dealer performing the actions just like you would see at a real physical casino. So for roulette, there will be a live video of a person spinning the wheel. For lotto draws it would be the same, where the player watches a video of dealer pulling the lotto balls from the basket. Why are these games so popular? Simple. Firstly they are new and players love to try new things. Secondly they bring a different aspect to the online casino experience. Typically it has been man vs machine (the RNG), but now there is a real person on the other side which makes the gameplay very different.
Apart from new games and game play, what will make a player try something new? Simple. Bonuses. Bonuses have worked in the past and will always work. Players love nothing more than free bets, free spins and free chips. The most popular bonuses from the Best South African casinos are no deposit bonuses. The way these work is that all you have to do is register and you will qualify for the bonus. The bonus will typically be betting credits which give the player free spins or actual betting credit that they can use to place bets on any game they want. The no deposit bonus however cannot be withdrawn and needs to be played with a certain minimum number of times. Each casino has a different criteria, for example Yebo Casino gives you 50 free spins but you can only play them on Caesar’s Empire slot.
