How does the SLOT token work in the Alphaslot ecosystem?
Alphaslot’s SLOT, a utility token, is an ERC20 with on-chain transactions recorded on Ethereum and is the in-game token format on the Alphaslot chain. The SLOT token enhances the player’s level of engagement and increases the player’s control of the game by offering in-game strategies and token functionalities. This provides players with incentives to stay engaged with the casino experience through the Alphaslot Platform. By accumulating SLOT, players are better equipped with more game control and may have higher chances of winning. These game features based on SLOT usage will keep players engaged in playing the game and thus operators realize more value in their business. The enhanced in-game control and customization of these games also serve to attract players looking for a more interactive gaming experience.
