Royal Vegas adds Variety, filters game menu by Cold and Hot slots.
The website designers over at Royal Vegas Casino have been quite busy lately. Just recently, the casino games menu saw an overhaul, adding new categories and filters. Specialty games have been replaced by Variety, while a new menu item, Vegas, comes with enhanced filtering options.
The full games menu that appears on the desktop and mobile website now contains nine categories. They include:
||A customizable list of games consisting of all titles ‘starred’ by an individual player.
||All games currently under promotion, and/or new to the menu.
||The largest category of all, contains more than 350 online slot machines.
||All online table games are found here (expect the live variety).
||All live casino table games.
||More than two dozen ways to play video poker.
||All games with progressive jackpots (slots and otherwise) are located here.
||A mish-mash of games that don’t fit into any other categories.
||A choice selection of Vegas-style slot machines, including NetEnt titles.
Deciphering the New Variety and Vegas Categories
The very brief descriptions I’ve provided above hardly explain what these two categories relate to. In fact, I’m not sure what the were thinking when they chose the ‘Vegas‘ title, or why it exists to begin with. More on that in a moment…
The Variety section is easier to disseminate. This title replaces the previous ‘Specialty‘ category, wherein all ‘other’ types of casino games can be found. These include things like keno, bingo, scratch cards, and arcade style skill games.
As for the Vegas category, again, I think the marketers at Royal Vegas were seeking a way to get players to look at a few more of their games. This section is filled with more than 80 slot machines, most of which are made by their long-time partner Microgaming. However, I believe the idea was to showcase the offerings of their newest partner, NetEnt (Net Entertainment).
Within the Vegas category, you’ll find some of NetEnt’s most famous titles, like Gonzo’s Quest, Jack and the Beanstalk, and their trademark Guns and Roses Slot™. Other trademark titles include Dracula™, The Invisible Man™, Motörhead Video Slot™, Jimi Hendrix Online Slot™, Creature from the Black Lagoon™, and Frankenstein™.
Filtering Cold and Hot Slots
Filtering the slots for New titles, or table games for Blackjack or Roulette variants, is a nice touch. But Royal Vegas now offers more filtering options than ever. The menu now provides the choice to order all games by ‘Hot/Cold‘. This will list the hottest games first, and coldest games last.
Hot games are those that have been paying out the most in recent days or weeks. They are the ones with the highest actual payout percentage, as opposed to the theoretical return to player (RTP).
For instance, the Secret Admirer Slot has an RTP of 95.41%. However, it’s currently the hottest slot at Royal Vegas, paying well over 200%. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Jingle Bells Slot is paying abysmally low right now, averaging just 6.77%, despite its 94.95% RTP.
The real question is, which is better to play, cold or hot slots? Are those hotties going to keep paying? Or is it the coldest slots that will soon deliver a big payout to meet their RTP?
