Classic, or reel slots, of today are based on the earliest machines that allowed you to spin the reels. They feature far less paylines, reels, bonus rounds and special features than the more modern video slots, and much simpler background graphics and sound effects.
They are also different because they usually don’t feature an overarching theme, and the icons on the reels are the same as what was seen on the first machines. These usually include bars, 7s, bells, cherries and dollar signs.
As well as all the other differences between reel and video slots, the classic games tend to have smaller betting ranges. All of this means the gameplay is much more pared-down, and has a really retro feel to it. Don’t worry about the payouts though; we can assure you that they are large enough to satisfy modern players!
Classic slots are perfect if you are new to spinning the reels; they allow you to get familiar with the basics without too many distracting extras. As you continue on your gambling journey, you’ll come to appreciate them in the times when you want to slow the pace down a little, but still feel like playing and winning. And, of course, they are the favourite of seasoned slots purists everywhere.
While their themes are not as intense as their video counterparts, reel slots do often feature a general motif. Their designs also differ a little from game to game, which makes playing them more fun and dynamic.
Added to this is the fact that we roll out new titles in this category on a regular basis, keeping classic spins feeling fresh and new. Some of our most popular reel slot games at the moment include Zany Zebra, High 5 and Lions Share. Jurassic Jackpot is a great example of how a theme can be used differently in classic and video slots; it is much simpler than Jurassic World, but both sets of reels were inspired by Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster movies.
Progressive jackpots can also be attached to classic slots, as is the case with the 3-reel versions of Major Millions, Cash Splash and Fruit Fiesta at Euro Palace. Just because you’re kicking back with a slower pace, doesn’t mean you can’t win life-changing amounts!
