Introducing Slot Trumps: A Data-Driven Look into Player Behavior
In 2023, iGaming Business and EveryMatrix joined forces to launch Slot Trumps, a groundbreaking report that provides valuable insights into player engagement in key markets within the industry. By analyzing data and trends, Slot Trumps offers readers a unique perspective on how players interact with various gaming markets.
Exploring Player Behavior in Colombia
The latest edition of Slot Trumps focuses on the Colombian market and was recently published, shedding light on player behavior in this region.
The Brazilian Market: A Focus on Challenges and Tournaments
The inaugural edition of Slot Trumps examined the Brazilian market, which has been a hot topic of discussion in the industry. The report revealed that Brazilian players are particularly drawn to challenges and tournaments as they enhance their overall gaming experience.
During the release of the Brazilian dashboard, Brazil’s Chamber of Deputies had just approved Bill 3,626/23 aimed at regulating sports betting and online casinos.
Since then, significant developments have taken place. In November, Brazil’s Economic Affairs Commission (CAE) confirmed a reduced 12% tax rate for sports betting and rejected attempts to exclude igaming from the bill.
In December, Brazil’s senate plenary voted to approve amendments to the bill, initially removing igaming but later reinstating it. Finally, earlier this month, President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva gave his approval to the new regulatory framework for sports betting and igaming in Brazil.
Spotlight on Romania and Greece
The Slot Trumps report now shifts its attention to Romania. The analysis reveals that Romanian players tend to be captivated by buy features that enhance their gaming experience with rewards.
When looking at the top 20 most played games in Romania, they can be categorized into two groups: those with classic themes and no bonuses, and those with buy features.
Interestingly, Romanian players show a preference for familiarity. They enjoy games with “classic” themes and fewer slot features.
In Greece, the Slot Trumps dashboard reveals that players have specific preferences when it comes to slot themes. Out of Greece’s top 1,865 games, approximately 17.6% feature fruit symbols and 15.0% incorporate animals.
Greek players also tend to place lower bets over a longer period of time. The average bet per spin across the top 20 games on SlotMatrix is €0.79, influenced by the maximum bet cap on slots in Greece.
