Online slot games are some of the most popular casino games out there. These games have developed over time from simple three-reel land-based slot machines to the more glamorous, complex games which pay out in multiple ways that we know today. Slot games are one of the easiest casino games to master as it simply requires spinning reels and lining up matching symbols in order to score a payout.
At Slotty Vegas Casino, we offer a big selection of online slots that you can play whenever you want to.When you play slot games at Slotty Vegas, there are a number of different bonus features that help you to propel to a win. These can include wilds, scatters and all manners of in-game extras - for the specifics, you'll need to actually check out each game and its paytable. In addition to this, slots are often the focus of many online bonuses that include free spins, bonus cash and more. All this goes a long way in helping new players get to grips with these exciting games. Better yet, these games don't require too much strategy so they're perfect for sitting back, relaxing and playing as much as you want.
Playing casino slots online has a number of major advantages over playing in a real casino. The first of these is the huge range of choices that are on offer. When compared to a land-based casino, online casinos have a distinct advantage – it can pack many more slots into a small space. Whatever tickles your fancy, it's bound to be found online somewhere. If you want in-game features, they're available. A slot themed on dragons? We got it. There is even a choice on how many paylines you'd like, with some slots offering thousands of ways to win, others a more standard setup and yet more offering the classic three rows.
The range of options available is due, in large part, to the fact that there are so many slot providers out there. Not all slot providers are made equal though, and some offer better games than most. Microgaming is a name everyone should know if they get into online casinos as they were the first company to really get into the business. NetEnt runs a close second, offering a full range of slots in all shapes and sizes. For the more discerning player, Play n Go offers top quality graphics alongside stellar gameplay.
Another positive thing about playing online is the fact that you can get bonuses and promotions to aid you in your gaming. Many of our online slots are subject to promotions and this helps players to get ahead. One of the most popular of these bonuses is the free spins. New players making an account can grab a number of spins in the Book of Dead slot, which can help you get a better feel of the game and our online casino as a whole. Brick-and-mortar based gaming doesn't offer excitement such as this, so this is indeed another score for the online casinos!
There are a number of different types of slots that you can play, and these have developed and evolved over the years.
The first slots were simple three-reel affairs and these days, these are known as classic slots. Originally only found in physical form, there weren't too many bells and whistles attached, nor were there (or still are) very many symbols. Classic slots tend not to have any bonus features either. To play, it's just a simple case of placing a bet, spinning the reels and hoping three symbols line up. These classic games usually come with the traditional fruit machine icons such as cherries, bars, sevens, horseshoes and bells.
Video slots are the most commonly found slot games. These have a wide variety of reel structures, though most commonly these are five rows and three reels with an average of 20 paylines. However, the structure can be as varied as having seven rows and offering over 1000 different ways to win. These types of games are usually accompanied by a whole host of different bonuses with mini games often included, all in an attempt to be more lucrative. Progressive jackpot slots usually fall into this category as well, with the jackpots mounting up as each player around the world places a bet.
Themed slots are another slot type and these overlap video slots. Themed slots are created in conjunction with a brand, usually a movie, TV show or musician. These slots will utilise famous elements that are synonymous with the brand they are representing. In the case of TV or movie themes, these often immerse the player right back into the story using characters from the film or show, the same soundtrack and interspersing elements of the story throughout. For the music-themed slots, band members tend to play a prominent role, as does the music they are famous for - players are often given the option to choose a favourite song.
In order to play slots well, we need to understand the key elements. The reels are what the slot is made of. The number of reels depends on the type of slot. The symbols are on the reels and these are then spun in order to make the desired matches. Along the reels are the paylines. Again, these vary between slots. Every online slot has a table outlining what its paylines are. In traditional classic slots, these paylines were simply straight across. However, in video slots, they can run in all sorts of ways, although symbols must usually line up from left to right.
The last thing to be aware of when playing or choosing which casino slots to play is the volatility. This tells players how often a big win will land. The lower the volatility, the smaller the wins; however, these wins will come very frequently. These types of slots are great for impatient, low-budget players. High volatility means that wins won't come very often but when they do land, they'll be big ones. These slots are great if players have an extensive bankroll and can play multiple spins. For most players, medium volatility is the best way to go as players will get the best of both worlds.
When it comes to playing these types of games online, you can get very lucky as there are a number of options available. Slotty Vegas offers online slots free to play in a demo version. This means that you can test out the game, often without the need to sign up. It is the perfect opportunity to see how often wins land and to decide if you like the slot as a whole.
Once you have decided that you like a particular slot, you can then switch it up and play for real money. At Slotty Vegas, this can simply be done at the click of a button, switching between the two gaming options. However, playing a slot for real money will mean that the player must have signed up and made an account with our casino. Unless utilising a bonus, this will also mean that they will need to make a cash deposit into their casino account in order to start placing bets and reaping the potential rewards from the slot machines.
With the continuous upgrades in technology moving as fast as it can, it was not surprising that it didn't take long before slot games were made available on mobile devices. Originally casino games were programmed using Flash, but newer games are created through HTML5, which is why you can now comfortably play on your mobile device.
Many providers, such as NetEnt, are undertaking a thorough overhaul of their games, transferring them to a new platform so that their older games are mobile-optimised. This kind of updates in the iGaming industry has enabled even more players to have access to online slots. For the most part, slot games are compatible across a range of devices and operating systems including Android and iOS.
Online slots are extremely fun and potentially highly lucrative if you know what you're looking for. We suggest checking out some games using the demo options so that you get an idea of what you prefer. Once that's sorted, it's time to make an account with us and get playing for real. At Slotty Vegas, we offer an eclectic mix of video, themed and classic slots all with a wide range of volatility levels that cater to everyone. Better yet, we offer a lucrative welcome bonus, which even comes with some free spins. Go keep our Slotty Vegas online slots whirling!
