Land Based Slots Online
Since the creation of the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell, by Charles Fey in 1887, many weird and wonderful themes have been used to create these one armed bandits. Of course, some have been more popular than others, with some themes being reproduced many times, while others may have only spent a few weeks in the corner of a small casino.
The emergence of the internet and online slots has allowed for even greater imagination and variety in terms of slot themes. From monkeys in outer-space to surfing penguins, thousands of ideas have been transformed into video, traditional classic and i-slots.
Despite new technological developments allowing for more inventive themes to be implemented, some traditional slot themes still remain popular to this day. As a result of this, some of the traditional one armed bandits have been imitated and their themes applied to online video slots.
Egyptian Themed Slots
One of the most popular themes for online and offline slots is Ancient Egypt. Traditional slots that implemented some form of this theme include Pharaoh’s Pyramid, Queen of the Nile and Cleopatra. These slots, especially Cleopatra, have proven incredibly popular with multiple sequels being created. Similar online slots include Cleopatra’s Gold*, Pharaoh’s Millions* and King Tut’s Fortune* which are just a few of the many slots available in online casinos, as well as our Pharaoh’s Treasure slot.
TV Show Themed Slots
Many TV and game shows have managed to make their mark on to the world of slot machines and none more so than the Beverly Hillbillies. This slot was originally created by International Game Technologies (IGT) and contained images such as the main characters, drunken squirrels and a possum playing dead. This slot used the popularity of the 60s sitcom to become one of the most popular slot variations in Las Vegas. For those who enjoy the hillbilly theme, you’re bound to like playing our Trailer Cash slot.
Pirate Themed Slots
Pirates have been another mainstay of slot machines, as many traditional slots such as Pirate’s Paradise, World of Pirates and Pacific Treasure have all used symbols associated with the buccaneers. Pirate’s Paradise* has even been reproduced by software creators Microgaming to imitate the traditional slot with the original 3 reels, 1 line and maximum coins per line of 3. If you’re a fan of pirate themed games such as these then be sure to check out Free Slots Online’s Pirate’s Treasure game.
Crime Themed Slots
Cops and robbers is a theme that has become surprisingly popular in offline and online slot machines alike. Many traditional slots such as Cops’n’Robbers – Safecracker, Break the Bank and Beat the Bank have been present on Las Vegas casino floors for many years. They have now made their way online in the form of traditional slots such as Bank On It* and video slots such as Bust Da Safe*. Free Slots Online offer a similarly themed slot which comes in the form of the 5 reel video slot Safe Cracker.
Halloween Themed Slots
Vampires, ghosts and all things scary can often be found in most forms of popular culture and slot machines are no different. 1998 saw the Halloween slot machine being created by Net. Corp, which was so popular that seven more versions have followed since! We currently offer our very own spooky free slot, called Halloween, which features 5 reels and a top award of 2000x. Other similar online slots, Halloweenies* (created by Cryptologic) and Haunted House* (created by RTG) are available and both involve 20 lines or more as well as a top award of 5,000x.
USA Themed Slots
Some of the oldest slot machines around employ the theme of the red, white and blue, with the slot named ‘America’ having been created in Chicago way back in 1897. Many more have followed since, including American Dream and Stars & Stripes, with the red, white and blue proving to be extremely popular. Mount Cashmore offers a slightly different twist on American patriotism with Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln providing the background, reel symbols and entertaining bonus round where you have to find the hidden treasure behind one of their faces.* = Unfortunately these slots cannot be played online in the US due to legal restrictions.
