The biggest drawcard for any online casino or land-based casino is the slot machine. These instantly recognisable machines built the gambling industry into what it is today – a multi-billion-dollar entertainment giant that has passionate players across the world.
Everybody knows what the old-school slot machines looked like: big cabinets, a set of reels or drums with symbols on them, a coin slot and a big ol’ lever on the side to pull and set your game in motion.
Today’s casino landscape, online and land-based, is very different. Instead of the cabinets and levers we walk into a casino or log onto a casino to be face with hundreds – thousands – of screens enticing us in with amazing graphics and awesome sound effect.
These are video slots.
What are online video slots?
Any video slot game you play at an online casino is, by inference, an online video slots game. Video slots are slots machines or slots games that use graphics and multimedia instead of the old mechanical reel system.
The beauty of video slots is that the technology has allowed our favourite gambling game to become a multimedia entertainment powerhouse rather than just spinning reels. Online video slots are able to feature more reels, multiple pay lines, more symbol for more wilds and interactive minigames.
What are the benefits of video slot machines?
A greater degree of fun and excitement for one. Online video slots give players a far more interactive and immersive gaming experience. As mentioned above, with online video slots you can get more pay lines for more chances to hit. You also get more and better bonuses like free spins, multipliers, wilds and scatters. Add in the amazing minigames and, the latest tech to make it into the online slots realm, 3D technology and you have a game that really ticks all the boxes for fun, playability, interactivity, and chance.

Are online video slots safe to play?
If your online casino is a trusted operation, your online video slots games will be safe and secure.
To make sure you are not conned out of money or become the victim of some internet scam, always make sure you are playing at a licensed online casino. Our recommended online casinos (link to top online casinos page) have been checked out by the OSAC reviewers for safety and experience, but you should check reviews and comments online as well.
Are online video slots rigged?
In a dodgy unlicensed online casino – very likely. In an above-board, licensed online casino – no. Remember, this is a business. If punters are ripped off they will not return – and will definitely tell anyone who will listen on chatboards, forums and the licensing body about their experience.
