Loot boxes are containers that you purchase in a game. What you get is a box that will churn out a prize.

As a player, you have no idea what prize you are getting. A pay-to-win feature is one where you need to make a purchase to gain a significant advantage. You will often see this in games where you need to buy items with higher quality. If you don’t make a purchase, your chance for success is close to impossible.

At the end of the day, is this gambling or not?

Important Definitions

Gambling is an activity where one person uses something of value to wager on an unknown outcome. Essentially, it all boils down to the element of chance and that the participant is expecting to get something of value that is higher than his investment. The other factor to consider is he can lose and get something of lesser worth or nothing at all. Accordingly, there are five criteria that an activity must meet...

Slot machine games have been around since the 1870s and have since remained the most highly demanded casino sets.

These games come with simple gameplay that makes them an easy choice for most players. Gamblers can free play online slots by only selecting the desired bet and spinning the reels. Since the gameplay is the main reason for slots’ popularity, most online gaming companies have maintained the same procedure. However, such a simple process can get boring fast, so software developers have improved other elements, one of them being the inclusion of themes.

Themes are settings within which slot gameplay is placed and are used to inspire the icons, backdrop, playing grid, and bonuses of a set. Online gaming software providers draw inspiration from various elements in life, and among the popular ones is PC games. Like casino games,...

The web is an endless source of possibilities, especially for those who love videogames.

Almost anything can be found on the net, from a casino promo code to tutorials (now usually made into videos) about ways to beat that particularly difficult game level, and so on. All of this is beneficial to users, but some of these providers of information unfortunately are forced to succumb to technological evolution.

In fact, after 28 years of activity, Prima Games will close its doors in the spring of 2019, after becoming some years ago a division of Penguin Random House following an acquisition. The publishing house, founded in 1990 in Roseville (California) by Ben Dominitz, will only have the time to print their maxi-guide dedicated to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, an exclusive game for Nintendo Switch coming up at the beginning of December. This is the last work...
