Nothing has harnessed the joint power of the internet and PC technology like slots: Once consigned to the less salubrious rooms at Vegas casinos and found in dingy pubs throughout the UK, the traditional pub-style fruit machine with its spinning reels, flashing lights and boardgame-style feature play has been wholly reinvented. You’ll now find everything from top-quality 3d graphics and sound samples through to wildly-imaginative gameplay and bonus rounds on offer.

Classic slot games
Traditionalists will still find the classic fruit games on offer if they want: Many of these are lovingly recreated versions of land-based classics and offer seemingly-rudimentary gameplay, often with some surprising twists and strategic challenges.
However, it’s the newer games that are really attracting attention. On-screen play has enabled the rapid development of new ideas, and given us some instant classics: Falling block-style games like Da Vinci Diamonds and Gonzo’s Quest have turned the traditional playing environment on its head, whilst innovative companies like Betsoft are coming up with 3d reelfaces, compered by animated characters that introduce you to an entire story within each game.
TV slot games
Top TV and movie executives have been particularly quick to catch on to the online slot industry, and you’ll now see slots based on classic TV shows and movies like Deal or No Deal, Blockbusters, Scarface and The Dark Knight. Whatever your favourite movie of all time is, you can almost guarantee that there’s a slot based on it, or there’s one in production.
Many players love slots so much that their only gripe is that they can only fit a certain number of games into one session. Again, by having slots on screen rather than using spinning reels there’s a solution, and most games now feature multi-line play: This enables you to select more than one winning line (sometimes up to over a thousand), so you can effectively play dozens of games or more at once at the click of a button.
Progressive Slots Jackpot
The biggest progressive jackpot wins on internet slot games have been over £5 million. These happen on games that are networked across hundreds of sites, taking bets from millions of players and storing up a percentage of them to pay out to anyone who can line up selected combinations of symbols. When these games pay out life-changing amounts of cash they often make the news, with classic games like Major Millions, Mega Moolah and Beach Party offering some mind-bogglingly large prizes.
Whatever preconceptions you have about online slots, give them a try and you’ll love them. The variety on offer is simply staggering and the gaming challenges they offer will have you buzzing with excitement every time you switch on your PC.
