Did you know more 80% of social slot players visit a casino at least once during the year? Of those 80%, nearly half of them are considered to be VIPs at SciPlay. According to recent survey's conducted by some major players in the social casino space, the cross over between players that play on mobile, and in person at the physical casino continues to increase. Slot players expect the same casino-like experience when they enter slot games online, and all that goes along with it.
