The Tech That Makes Online Slots Possible

by Staff

Online slots have become a huge success. They’ve certainly come a long way since the 1990s, when the games were first introduced to the public. In large part, we have developing tech to thank for this. Obviously, online slots would not be possible without developments in digital technology. But, some might wonder, what is the tech that makes online slots possible? 

Random Number Generator

The most important tech, without which online slots could not exist, is the random number generator. For those who don’t know, an RNG is a software that spits out random numbers whenever it is activated. But, how does that affect casino slots? Well, let’s find out. 

The random number generator creates random numbers at extreme speeds, and each of these random numbers result in a random outcome on the reel. By clicking a button, the player activates the RNG, which then produces a random outcome, emulating the randomized slot machines in land-based casinos.

Game Development Software

It is important to remember that slot games are, primarily, video games. In other words, one would need the latest in game development software to program and create these games. Game developers need the top programming languages, like Java or C++ in order to program these games. 

It is also important to pay close attention to game engines. Most of the top slot game developers use Unity or the Unreal engine to produce their games. From there, it is just a matter of seamlessly integrating said games into a website. 


The biggest benefit of online slots nowadays is the fact that they offer cross-platform compatibility. For those who don’t know, cross-platform compatibility refers to a website’s ability to be viewed from different electronic devices.

For example, if a website can be seamlessly viewed from a PC, a tablet, or a smartphone, that means that it is compatible across multiple platforms. In order to achieve this, online slot developers use HTML5 technology, which helps with integrating slot games across different platforms. 

Payment Gateways

In 2024, gamblers have moved away from credit cards, and largely favor alternative payment methods. Some of the most popular options include electronic wallets and cryptocurrency. However, not all slots allow for these different payment gateways. While having multiple options is not strictly necessary, it can come in handy.

What is absolutely necessary is ensuring that the slot website offers safe and secure payment methods. That is why encryption is absolutely necessary to create slots. Through encryption, slot developers make sure that their slot game offers safe and secure payments, that protect the user data. 

Future Tech

In this last section, we would like to predict what tech might be implemented in the creation of online slots in the future. Many are excited about the prospect of using artificial intelligence to enhance a slot game. Some developers are already experimenting with the concept. 

Virtual reality is also a new and exciting technology. Virtual reality casinos are already widely available across multiple platforms. However, all of them are social casinos, as most video game platforms do not allow gambling games.
