Why Slots have Become so Popular Among Students

Amazing Slot Games

Online casinos have become immensely popular over the last decade in Canada, offering hundreds upon hundreds of games. The market has become so crowded that each offers a huge range of different games and bonuses to try to stand out in the crowd.

There has been an incredible rise in the players on slots, particularly among students. These quick and easy to play games are as entertaining as they are potentially rewarding, making them perfect for students who lack much free time.

But, not all slot games emerge as successful among the online audience of Canadian students. So, here’s what has been found to make the most popular slot games.

Exciting Bonus Rounds

In the biggest and most popular online slots, there’s often an exciting bonus round that can be unlocked to unleash the gargantuan payouts. Like with the old (and remastered) Crash Bandicoot games, these bonus games don’t cost anything to play in and offer big rewards that help you in the game.

In Crash Bandicoot it doesn’t cost a life if you fall and you can get crates and lives within the bonus game. In online slot games, you unlock the bonus game and get free spins on it with the potential to win the biggest prizes.

Every slot game worth playing has a bonus game or free spin mode which delivers exciting spin after exciting spin. For example, Thunderstruck II has its very popular Great Hall of Spins main feature, and Mega Moolah has the Mega Moolah Wheel which you can spin to win millions.

Free Bonuses for Slots

This doesn’t necessarily apply directly to the slot game, but more from the online casinos that host the slot games. The crowded nature of the online casino scene has forced operators to offer big bonuses to players, which is all the better for the prospect online slot players of Canada.

Of the many bonuses you will find in slot games, nothing quite beats a free spin bonus. Often tied to a certain game, online casinos will offer free spins for you to play on their slots as part of a bonus. This allows players to try out the game and win.

But it’s not just free spin bonuses that can be used on slot games, as the bonus cash earned, often by making a deposit, can be played on slot games.

Popular Themes

Everyone’s a fan of something, which is why slot game developers have expanded to create themed games. One grand display of this is from the most popular show in the world, Game of Thrones. People have to wait until 2019 to see the next season, but to scratch that Thrones itch, they can play the Game of Thrones online slot.

Online slots have developed into an incredibly popular gaming genre, offering many different options to suit all preferences. Their diversity is what has made them the most popular online casino games in Canada.

Doing Things On Your Own Should Be Celebrated, Not Pitied

Our time with ourselves should be just as treasured as our time with other people.


Despite living in an incredibly individualistic society, it is rare to hear of occasions in which people go to restaurants, sight-see, or head out to a bar… alone.

Humans are naturally sociable creatures. We thrive in groups, and we often reach out to each other in the hopes of making long-lasting connections. This is great! People need people, and completely isolating yourself from everyone can have negative consequences on your mental health.

However, this also means that we tend to latch onto one another in social situations. I'm sure many people would be confused at the thought of going to a bar alone without the prospect of meeting up with friends—but why?

Why is it that people need to be seen in public with other people? Is it because socializing gives us a sense of purpose in being out at all? Is there something inherently shameful about being seen alone?

There certainly shouldn't be.

So much good can come out of spending time in your own company. As much as we love our friends and family, sometimes we need our alone time, and this doesn't always mean that we stay in and binge-watch a new Netflix series. (Although many times it does, and that's totally cool too.)

Sometimes needing our privacy means heading out to get a cup of coffee and sitting in a cafe for hours without waiting for anyone. Sometimes it means visiting that museum you've never been to and soaking up all the art at your own pace. Sometimes it means that you need a break to sit with your thoughts.

So why do we feel such immense pity whenever we see someone standing alone?

If we see someone at the movie theater with their bag of popcorn and no clear sign of expecting anyone, why do we assume that means the person is a loner?

Maybe that person just wanted to enjoy a film they've waited years for, and maybe they couldn't watch it to its fullest extent with their best friend asking questions about it all the time. Maybe they had a rough week and want to sit with their popcorn—no questions asked.

Regardless of the reason, we should not be pitying anyone who stands apart from the crowd in a public space. Rather, we should remember that our time with ourselves should be just as treasured as our time with other people.
