Online Slots Information

Classic online slot machines are the older, more basic version of a slot machine and these ones tend to have 3 reels and 1 winning payline. However, some classic slots can have up to as many as 5 paylines and some have been known to have 9 paylines. Most video slot machines with 5 reels usually have a minimum of 5 winning paylines and they can have up to 100 paylines.

The great thing about online slot machines is that there are so many different slot themes for you to choose from. For example you can find the branded Marvel slots at any of our featured Playtech casinos and these slots are based on famous Marvel characters such as Thor – The Mighty Avenger, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 1, 2 and 3, Blade, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Wolverine, Spiderman, The Avengers, Daredevil, Captain America and Punisher.

You can also find love & romance themed slots, action slots, 3D slots, lucky Irish themed slots, ancient Egyptian themed slots, magic themed slots, ocean/fishing themed slots, board game themed slots, television game show themed slots, movie themed slots, fantasy/fairy tale themed slots, mafia/crime themed slots, money/gold/wealth themed slots, sports themed slots, wildlife/animal themed slots, pirate themed slots, horror/vampire themed slots and one or two other popular themes also exist.

The most exciting sots available online today are the multilined video slots with bonus rounds and special features. These bonus rounds (aka side games) generally take place away from the reels and many of them contain more than 1 different level to win prizes from. They are generally simple picking rounds, but some of them also require a bit of skill to win prizes. These bonus rounds normally trigger when three or more Bonus Symbols show up anywhere in view.

You can also usually win X amount of Free Spins when three or more of the Scatter Symbols show up anywhere across the reels, plus you can also win huge prize thanks to various other exotic symbols like substituting Wild Symbols and Multiplying Symbols. In addition to regular Wild Symbols which can substitute all other symbols on the reels to help generate new winning combinations, you can also now find Expanding Wild Symbols, Sticky Wild Symbols and Stacked Wild Symbols, plus several other variations.

The slots with the biggest prizes to play for are known as progressive jackpot slots and the great thing about all of the slots that you can find at any of our featured online casinos is that you can play on them either instantly in your browser over a flash casino platform or you can play on them from within a download client directly from your desktop.
