Mobile Novelty Games

With increasing frequency, we’re starting to see lots of games appear onto the market place which don’t necessarily fit into the neat categories which have been used for ages. Mobile slots, mobile table games and mobile Bingo all have recognisable cousins in the physical world, but with mobile technology developing at lightning speed, games whose conception is only possible on screen are becoming more prevalent. This is why we present to you our Novelty Games section.

Taking full advantage of the increased functionality on modern mobile devices, next generation mobile gambling games are being developed which take older casino game concepts and turn them on their heads to make something brand new and exciting. These novelty games aren’t for everyone, and many serious players consider them to be a silly distraction, but we at Droid Slots are always big advocates of looking for the element of fun over anything else. If people have fun while playing these slots, then there is reason in itself for us to report on them.

In this category you’ll find all information related to the release of novelty games, including reviews and explanations of how they work. We look for the games with novelty features which work, and those which have proved less successful to work out why.

5 ‘Fusion’ Slots that Rewrite the Rules

Game makers are reimagining slot games and rewriting the rules. We could call them “fusion slots”, although they do not strictly fall into any category. These games merge slots with elements of pop culture; be it a mobile game, TV series or lifestyle. By doing so, mobile casinos capitalise on another item’s popularity, while players get a kick out of seeing their old favourite in a new format. For game creators, the challenge lies in adapting the right elements so that they are still recognisable, yet converting it into a luck-based game.
