One type of slot machine that you may just come across when playing at certain online casino sites are what are classed as multi-player slots, and there are no prizes for guessing what is unique about those types of slot games as their names do give that away.
When playing multi-player slots, you are of course playing a slot that is linked with several other slots of the same type with other players, and when playing them online for example you will also be able to chat to those other players.
You do that via an on screen chat box, however you can of course choose to turn off and deactivate the chat box if you are not feeling very social and would prefer not to talk to any other slot players playing the same slot machine at the same time as you are.
The one main aspect of playing such slots however, and one that does appeal to many players that enjoy logging into a casino and playing and interact with other slot players is that the bonus games when triggered, are awarded to all players of a multi-player slot at the same time.
Microgaming have launched a few multi-player slots over the years and as such if you do fancy giving them a try then you will of course need to find a casino site that offers their gaming platforms and range of slot games.
However, what I have noticed when playing multi-player slots, is that there never seems to be any other players playing them, and as such that is an indication of how popular or in this case how unpopular they are with online slot players.
