Casino's with the most traffic?

Been looking around to find a resource of how many people are actively playing on one casino at any given time but really cannot find anything, wondering if anyone here knows what casinos take most of the slot playing traffic?

Personally i feel much better playing at casinos i know have lots of regular active players. I assume 32red would have the biggest active player pool? Others??

I would imagine a lot of the European-oriented casinos would be up there with high traffic. Casino Euro, Betsafe, Betsson (all one company), Nordic Bet, Unibet etc.
Ladbrokes are certain to have a large UK-based following, RedBet I'm sure will be increasing their numbers by the day (especially since attaining such positive reviews here).

I really don't think it matters though, I've lost more at 32Red and RedBet than any other casinos. Yet I've won huge amounts at some of the lesser rated, lesser known casinos (and been paid without issue).
Just stick to the accredited list on here and you shouldn't go wrong - amount of players (I'm assuming/making an educated guess) won't increase your chances of winning on random games.

NOTE - I don't mean that to sound patronising. I'm not sure how it will come across :)

Cheers for the reply. Are you sure the amount of players wont increase your chance to hit? Reason i ask is if i play at a casino not very well know or used (will hill for example) and i hit big on a slot, it can then be completely dry for 2-3 days after that, just seems like i've won all there is and no ones put anything else back. Feels this way on most slots after a hit of even 1-200x they just take for days before that same hit, sometimes feel like i'm the only one putting money back into them!

Where when i played at 32red or unibet for example, i could have multiple hits in relatively short amount of time and the slots always felt like they were playing different rather than just not paying out at all. The RTP has to work off a percentage and if only one or two players are putting into that slot then it's going to take a while for it to pay out.

Same as you it's just speculation really, no one actually know how they work. I just would like to believe a higher traffic casino would obviously be taking and giving out a lot more money in short succession.

One thing i would absolutely love is for casinos to add a little "People Playing" counter on the slot so that you know xxx amount of people are also putting money into the slot, therefore you don't feel like the only one putting money into it.

I can understand your point, but I honestly don't think it matters. For example -you've as much chance of hitting 5-reel wild on IR or TSII at 32Red as you have at any other MG casino.
Your experience of 32Red is different than my own - I've had one (just one) very big hit in all my time there. The rest has been spent pulling my hair out with loss after loss. I was told by CS today that my RTP has been 74% over the past week or so, yet on Red Flush (nowhere near as big) my RTP has been 103% over a longer period of time. The size of the casino or the number of players shouldn't make a difference.

What does matter though, is you're 100% guaranteed to be paid rapidly (when you win) by the big boys ;)

Don't really think theres a connection to traffic/wins.

FWIW I do my best at a pretty unknown, quiet little online casino.. decent wins and never had an ounce of hassle with payments etc. :)

I have won MORE at 32Red and Redbet than anywhere else. I find the complete opposite - Casino's with MORE traffic seem to do it for me. It truly doesn't matter but I have hit big at a few NetEnt Casinos but also have hit big on more occasions at places with higher traffic. I DON'T particularly play more at them... I play almost evenly everywhere... (Ask Redbet Andy :D)

I have honestly tried everyone of them SOLIDLY and can without a doubt (Mostly NetEnt) say that the BIGGER or more popular a place, the better I have done :)

IMO traffic does make a difference in terms of the # of available wins. The more money in,the more available to payout. Just take for example a jackpot of $10,000.00. Lets say casino A is the low traffic casino, the RTP may only withstand a payout of 1 $10,000 jackpot, whereas Casino B is the high traffic casino, and they have the ability to award 5 $10,000 jackpots. So jackpots are available at both. The difference is Casino A only has 1 jackpot available , but they have fewer people, Casino B has 5 available jackpots, but they have more people playing for those jackpots. In the end the odds of winning may be the same at both places. You have to be the lucky one so that the odds end up in your favor. I hope this simple illustration of my thought process makes sense. I have been gambling for years and have always not been a fan of low traffic casinos, but now that I am thinking out loud, the odds really could be the same between low traffic and high traffic casinos.

.

To give a few examples.

If I remember correctly, then Redbet (the group) reported about 35-40 000 active players during 2012.

32Red (the group) about 60 000 active players, while Unibet (the group) most likely have 500 000 + active players (not sure how many playing casino).

My opinion is that traffic does not matter. Remember that even 32Red is quite small compared to some of the huge bookmakers out there.

This is getting dangerously near tinfoil level.
Whether the casino has one player or 1 million makes no difference to gameplay, or the particular slot you are playing. The only difference it can make is the speed and amount of progessive build-ups.
When you pick a slot to play at a new casino, you get your own pool of amounts to choose from via the RNG for the slot you are playing. A 'fresh' pool if you like. YOUR pool. Of course the pool has the same amounts/wins as for all other players who choose that slot/game. It's not the same pool being picked by all the different players of a particular slot at the same time.

I'm not sure how you'd figure out active players at any given time, but you can estimate the popularity of sites using their Alexa rating.

Alexa is owned by Amazon and it provides an estimate of the ranking of a website based on number of visitors compared to other sites.

It's not 100% accurate, not even close, but it's OK as a general indicator of traffic.

Here's the current Alexa rating for a few of the popular sites:

(Lower number = more popular, so ranking 1 would be the most popular site on the internet)

3Dice - 1,253,380

iNetBet - 464,429

Mr Green - 75,667

32Red - 62,698

NordicBet - 40,264

Bovada - 17,706

Ladbrokes - 6,461

Unibet - 4,334

Note that some of the sites like Ladbrokes and Unibet also have bookermakers, poker etc. so naturally have a higher ranking.

Like I said, it's definitely not accurate but it does give a general idea.

You can look up the ranking of any site by entering the domain at Alexa.com
