I was wondering - is there anyone who reads slots reviews?

Personally, I rarely read reviews. Sometimes I am looking for specific info like the payout or specific feature, but in most cases I will just play it myself and figure it out.

However, there are thousands of reviews for each slot. I was wondering if anyone actually reads them...

Actually, the best reviews are in this Slot Forum for all I'm concerned. Can't get much better than that. :D

Generally no - because most are just "marketing blurb" written by someone who doesn't even play the games!
All they give you is the basic "mechanics" of the game and what features are available - not what it is actually like to play it.
I do read the review if a member here posts one - because they're usually players.

I write my own reviews of some slots I've actually played, for use on my websites - but whether anyone else actually reads them, I have no idea!

Great question!

I will start with being honest. I've never ever read a slot review :)
If there are certain things I want to know I can find the answer but any review doesn't interest me.

What can make me play a slot is if I watch a video here, or like when DoA began being popular...that was because of our own Nate in this forum constantly posting winnings.
He is still the king of that game ;)

I do tend to read the 'New Slot announcements' on here and have contributed when I've had a 'taste'

I also like to watch Dunover's video reviews.

I watch the promo videos; they used to get me excited but now I just have a blah reaction. I do look forward to the Dunover video reviews as I feel they are much more entertaining than the new slots themselves. So game providers out there get off your bums and come up with a slot that gets players excited again with new concepts, decent payouts and a chance for some mega wins!

That will be the same day I get my brand new Ferrari and 8 bedroom house with Swimming pool then!

:lolup::lolup::lolup::lolup: You are so funny Jon. But it would be nice to have new fun slots with payouts capable of 1000x every now and again.

It sure would osulle, a welcome and refreshing change is much needed.

We had some new ideas a while back such as the feature on Terminator 2, A couple of the Dinosaur feature on JP were fresh, things like Twin Spin join up's, the Koi Princess 'Sure Win' feature but then it was back to 'Attack of the Clones'.

These software providers must pay their developers and designers thousands where the much more rewarding answer, not to mention cheaper lies by simply asking the players!!

True Dunover your reviews are the best and are brutally honest. That is why I like them because I know if you say a slot is rubbish then it is rubbish!

99 out of 100 websties with slot reviews are BULLSHIT and ONLY for marketing purposes and to catch players googling and bring them to the website.

The only website with slot reviews i've ever used was KasinoKings when i started to play RIVAL a few years ago as he listed all features/variances in a nice way.... :)

There's no such thing as un-biased media, so no I don't read them.
But I don't trust other peoples' experience on forums either cuz a lot of the
time it's not the same as my experience has been
