Wednesday, Sep 6, 2017 08:46

Many players flock to Vegas for its fantastic slot machines: they are glittery, they are fruity and they are just so much fun. There is nowhere you can find as many classic slot machines in such close proximity to one another as in Las Vegas. Hold on, you can: on the Internet!

Classic slots are the perfect introduction


Playing slots online can be daunting when you first get started. There are too many buttons available, too many reels and the paylines aren't well-defined. This, however, is rarely the case when you play classic slots online. Classic slots tend to be simple, they tend to only allow you to change your bet and press the spin button. Commonly, the spin button results in three reels turning, coming to a halt and clearly showing the amount of money you have just won.

Available options


On classic slots, players commonly have the choice between a one coin bet or the maximum bet per spin. To find out how much you could earn, a neat paytable opens upon pressing the button for it. The payout information is easy to understand: the image shows the combination, also called payline, you require to win. Often there are more than ten paylines. While this is the most basic classic slot, some classic slots additionally allow you to change the number of coins you are using per bet. The more coins you choose to use, the higher your potential payout but also your risk.

Great design


In a world where we are bombarded with razor-sharp graphics and too many options, a little bit of nostalgia is normal. Fruit-themed slot machines remind us of a time before the smartphone, cherries and dollar signs are symbols of the 80s Vegas glamour that has now been replaced by too many tourists and too few gambling enthusiast.

More often than not, classic slots replicate a retro look but are indeed brand-spanking new. This ensures that - in spite of what one may think - the technology utilised in classic slots can be quite innovative. The reels spin seamlessly, fast and hardly ever encounter a technical problem.

Here's to some of the best classic slots


Broadly, classic slots can be split into two categories. Those classic slots that replicate the look and feel and those that are in fact super old. Let's start with the first category: Beetle Frenzy isn't just a great name for a slot, it's also an accurate description. This classic slot by NetEnt is flower-power colourful and boasts bold graphics that would have only ever been considered hip in the 80s. What makes Beetle Frenzy so special is its lucky spin. When four identical symbols land on each of the four corners, players get a free round.

Cleopatra might not be the oldest of all online slots, but it's certainly been around since the heyday of popular Internet use. Cleopatra by IGT is based on the famous Egyptian princess. Besides cool graphics, this slot machines also comes with impressive sound effects that are as cheesy as it gets!
