The first report that the company released is focused on the Brazilian market, one that has been growing steadily over the past few years. One of the findings of the report was that players in Brazil prefer medium-to-high volatility slot games, with 56 percent most played games in this market being in this category.
Moreover, the report found that Brazilian casino players interact with challenges, tournaments and other competitions more than any other. As for game themes, 10 percent of Brazilian players prefer slot games with animals, 7 percent like fantasy games, 6 percent prefer games with fruit, while 3.6 percent go for mythology-themed games.
The 90-day study of the Brazilian market also revealed the type of features that players like to see in their favourite slot games. Surprisingly, 30 percent of the games that feature in the top 20 for the Brazilian market have no Bonus type features at all.
However, these games are so popular among players thanks to their game mechanic predictability, with most of them tending to have classic themes such as fruits and also many of them are online versions of popular land-based slot games.
