The first slot machine was created in 1895 in San Francisco by Charles Fey. Referred to as the Liberty Bell, this simple 3-reel saloon-style slot was not only the birth of modern mechanised gambling, but the inception of the classic reel slot game.
This style of slot game became immensely popular throughout the 1900s, but with the invention of video games and the integration of that technology into modern slot games during the late 1900s, the popularity of the classic reel slot declined sharply. Although the newer theme-rich video slots were and still are the most popular slot variant, recently, there has been a trend towards rediscovering the simplicity of these early slots with many online casino developers cashing in with retro 3-reel slot titles.
Royal Vegas is more than just a slots casino, as there is a variety of casino games online to enjoy here, however, the most popular can be found in the slots section, and some of the best online slots in Canada are available at Royal Vegas.
While they can come in different types, the term ‘reel slots’ refers to the slot machines that we’re all familiar with – those that have a number of vertical sections that roll with the simple press of the play button. When playing slots online in Canada, you’ll find that there are generally two types: 3-reel and 5-reel slots.
There are two main genres when it comes to online slots: 3-reel slots and 5-reel slots. The 3-reels slots are also known as classic slots as these are the ones that experienced players will remember, especially when it comes to the symbols. They only have 3 reels, and usually just 1 payline, and the symbols are standard: cherries, bars and sevens. These slots don’t have special features, but they can offer fast play and plenty of excitement.
The 5-reels slots, on the other hand, are also known as video slots, and these come with different paylines – some even offering a ways-to-win mechanic where payouts occur for left to right adjacent symbol combinations instead of paylines. The video slots have different themes and almost all of them offer exciting in-game bonus features where players could win a round of free spins or more.
