Online casinos have opened up a whole new world when it comes to Slots games – particularly when it comes to themes. Pick a topic, any topic, and the chances are, you’ll find a game associated with it. Whatever your interests and passions, it won’t be long before you find your new favourite. But there’s a phrase that goes ‘the oldies are always the best’, so read on as we delve into the three classic Slots games to check out the next time you visit an online casino like Mega Lotto.
Featuring a retro soundtrack and brightly coloured icons, you’ll feel like you’re back in the ‘80s with this game. Played out on a grid of 5×5, instead of pay lines, you’re looking to create clusters of the same colour to win – and expand the grid. Every win will expand the grid until it reaches its maximum of 11×11 squares.
There are six different colours: red, yellow, green, aquamarine, turquoise and purple and you win by landing a minimum of five clusters of the same colour anywhere on the grid. The bigger the clusters, the more you win.
The middle square contains an ‘x’ symbol and this is acts as the game’s multiplier. Every time the middle cube is part of a winning cluster, the multiplier will +1 and this will be added to your score – the highest the multiplier can be is 22x.
Activate the free spins feature by securing five different colour clusters and watch on as the ‘CUBES’ title fills with colour. Win up to 10 free spins and a random colour – and all wins in that chosen hue will remain sticky for the duration of the free spin game, hopefully culminating in even more lucrative wins. Land a mega cluster of 70 cubes in the free play mode and be rewarded with an instant win of 2,500x your original wager. Just try not to get square eyes!
If fruit-filled Slots are more your thing, you’ll love this game, inspired by the classic. Extra Juicy is a three-row, five-reel slot featuring all your favourite fruits and of course, Liberty bells. You need to match a minimum of three symbols on adjacent reels to win, and combinations pay out from left to right.
There are seven different symbols, in order of value: cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, blueberries, watermelons and bells. The game’s scatter symbol is the diamond, and it only appears on the first, third and fifth reels. Landing three of the scatter will pay out 2x your bet and activate the progressive multiplier free spins round.
In this bonus feature, players are rewarded with 12 free spins and the multiplier begins at 1x. After each spin, the multiplier increases by 1x and the feature can be retriggered up to four times. But landing scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 during free spin play will automatically award an additional 12 spins – meaning there are up to 60 free spins up for grabs! So, what are you waiting for?
If you’re feeling lucky, you’ll be hoping to land those 7s to win big with this slot. Much like our previous game, Super 7s features all your favourite classic Slots symbols: plums, pears, oranges, grapes, cherries, bells and of course, those lucky 7s – the most valuable symbol. The scatter here is the star, and pays out on any position. Again, you’re looking to match a minimum of three symbols on this three-row and five-reel slot, where wins pay out from left to right on adjacent reels.
And that’s all there is to it. If you’re new to Slots, this would be a good game to begin with, as it’s fairly simple and follows the premise of traditional slot machines. Although if you love classic games with retro-inspired music, this one’s for you – it feels as though you’re participating in a TV game show!
