The next big thing in online gaming.

February 11th, 2014 by Jay Comments

Gaming is big business, that is something that we all know; but did you realise just how big ‘big’ actually is?

The worldwide video game marketplace, which includes video game console hardware and software, online, mobile and PC games, reached about $93 billion in 2013, up from $79 billion in 2012, according to Gartner, Inc. Driven by strong mobile gaming and video game console and software sales, the market is forecast to reach $111 billion by 2015.

2013 was the year that all of the big players – Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo – released their next-generation video game consoles to a market that may be moving in another direction due to the popularity of mobile devices where, today, mobile app revenue comes from the U.S. and Europe, where smartphone and tablet penetration is greatest as games titles on mobile devices are considerably less expensive than those on game consoles.

Online and PC games remain popular but this segment can be limited in overall size. There are only so many times that you can beat Mario, the never-ending horde of zombies, Halo, or even sit and wait for the ‘next big thing’ like Titanfall.  For some people the thrill is found in a different place.  This is why online slots are gaining more and more popularity.

Choosing an online casino is an important decision. While it is important to make sure that you choose an online casino where you will have fun and be entertained, it is also very important that you choose an online casino that is operated in a safe and fair way. When you’re looking for a slots game that is right for you, the best way to do so is to make sure you have all the information you need to make the best choices. At Excellent Slots, they have done the work for you. You can read though our online casino reviews, and then decide which of the reviewed casinos will best meet your needs. For the beginner they’ve even created the Slots Academy. In the Slots Academy, you can find information on a number of slots topics, such as the rules of the game, slots history, slots tips, and slots strategy in order to learn to make the best of your slots betting.

So if you don’t want to be the next Lara Croft or Nathan Drake, maybe you can be the next high roller and hit it big on the slots.  The excitement is just as real.

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
