Sega is a company that hasn’t been heard of much in gaming news lately, but things might be changing for them as they’ve made the move to enter the lucrative mobile social gaming market. The company has recently released a new casino game app called Sega Slots.
The game features some of their most famous characters, like Sonic the Hedgehog and puts them in a Vegas-style slot environment that is quite unique. For now, the game has eight different slot machines that mobile gamers can enjoy. Players start by playing one machine, then earning points to unlock the rest. There are various interesting features in the game, such as a multiplayer mode that gives gamers the chance to compete against their friends. While some may find the offering of just eight slots to be a bit limited compared to other mobile games in the casino genre, Sega has announced plans to add new virtual slot machines and other content to the app in the future.
For Sega, entering the casino games market isn’t actually something new, but more of a throwback in time. Back in the 1950s, the company produced a wide range of slot machines that were in use across various gaming establishments.
Whether Sega Slots will be a success remains to be seen. In order to capture the attention of mobile gamers, Sega will need to compete with many established games that are topping the charts in the casino games category across mobile app stores.
