Slots are a staple of every online casino but with such a choice of games across so many websites, it can be hard to find the one that’s right for you.

Slots have changed dramatically from the noisy, luminous machines that inhabited pubs and arcades to something almost unrecognisable. What started out as a simple 3-wheel machine with bananas, cherries, berries and other random fruits have developed into a behemoth of five reels, 25-30 paylines, crazy symbols, bonus rounds and random jackpots. Although slots have greatly changed they have never lost the fun, the appeal and the excitement of the spin.

The three main types of slots machines available at online casinos are 3 Wheel Classics, Multi Payline and Multi Reel and Progressive Slots.

Classic Slots


3 Wheel Classics need little explanation. They provide the classic slot gameplay that has been known and loved for decades. To win on a classic 3 wheel slot simply line up three matching symbols on a single payline.

Multi Payline and Multi Reel


Multi Payline and Multi Reel slots are the new generations of machines. These machines give you multiple paylines across multiple reels. Multi reel slots will generally have between 25 and 50 paylines. The paylines should be shown in the slot information.

Progressive Jackpot Slots


Progress Jackpot slots are slots in which life changing amounts of money can be won. The slots are connected to a network with thousands of players playing simultaneously on different websites. All of this play feeds into a huge jackpot which one very lucky winner will get to walk away with.

Where to Play


There is no shortage of options when it comes to playing slots online. All of the major online gaming websites will provide a selection of slots. Some of the best software developers when it comes to slots include NetEnt, Microgaming, Play'N GO, WMS, Shuffle Master, IGT and Thunderkick so are good to look out for. Some of the most popular and well-known slots online include Starburst, Cleopatra’s Chest, Jackpot Giant and Age of Gods. Some websites such as SlotsMagic specialise in slots but all online casinos have a selection, explore them and you’ll soon find a slot that’s right for you!

Free Spins


Free spins are a classic slots promotion. As the name suggests they entitle players to free games of slots. Free spins are included in most welcome offers from the major online casinos and are also often given away in promotions. Two of the best free spins offers available at the moment are Casumo’s welcome offer of 200 free spins and Slots Magic’s offer of free spins for a year with a single deposit. Many online casinos such as Ladbrokes and Virgin Games run a ‘Game of the Week’ or ‘Game of the Day’ promotion was free spins are given away on a particular slot. Free spins are an excellent way to try out some new slots and to find the one that’s right for you all while having a lot of fun!
