There was a time (not so long ago) that the choice and quality of online slot games that were available to play were far inferior to the games that you could find in your nearest land-based casino. And let´s face it, you can´t head to the casino in your pyjamas, and that was leaving me at a disadvantage.
Well, that situation has reversed. These days, the sheer choice and quality of mobile slots and online games that you can play leaves many land-based casinos in the shade. Playing in your smalls is back in!
Here at Wombat Casino, we offer a huge selection of 5 reel slots, progressive jackpots and more traditional fruit machine that will keep you entertained for hours. Play some of the biggest games in the business with titles like the Game of Thrones slot, Tomb Raider, Gonzo’s Quest, Thunderstruck 2 and the Book of Dead Slot.
All of our games are available as demo versions when you sign up so that you can test out the slots risk free- when you have had a play and feel comfortable with the feature bonuses, then you can play for real.
Mobile Slots Demos
Try the Dead World slot on your mobile device for example. That´ll creep you out! It´s a zombie slot that has been optimised across all devices, so you can go after them zombies on your phone, on your tablet, on your laptop and on your desktop. They´ve nowhere to hide!
Some of the newer casino games have been designed so that you can play them in portrait mode on your device.
That was following feedback from players that they liked to play one handed rather than two handed in landscape mode. You´re a fussy load of wombats, aren´t you?
You might want to give Micro Knights a go if this appeals. One hand for the spins and another for the wins hopefully!
You can still play 3 reel, one pay-line slots with cherries, BARS, 7s, melons and lemons spinning around, but the real growth area has been the 5 reel video slots with their high definition graphics and exciting features, wilds and bonus rounds.
We explain some of the features that you’ll see in the games here at Wombat Casino. Hold onto your hats, we´re heading into the Slotiverse.
Most of our games give you the opportunity to choose between multiple pay-lines or Ways to Win. In the old days, the centre line used to be the pay-line. These days games can have up to 50 pay-lines, 243 Ways to Win or even more on MEGAWAYS games. This gives more opportunities to win, but remember you need to pay for those extra lines!
Wild symbols will stand in for other symbols to make up wins. These days, wilds can stack or expand across entire reels. They can even “trail” on some games. This is an area that continues to see a lot of innovation.
Features and Free Spins
Most games will have a feature bonus that is often triggered by getting 3 or more scatter symbols distributed anywhere across the reels. Once you have triggered the bonus, you may enter a side game with free spins, increased multiples on your wins or pick and click games. The variety here is almost endless.
Then there´s the Avalanche Drop, and similar features- it depends on the designer as to what they are called. Basically, you make a win, the winning symbols explode into a cloud of dust and new symbols drop into their place, potentially giving you a whole series of winning combinations off one spin. Nice!
Dracula has stacked wilds and a bat feature that changes symbols at random, for example. Then there’s the Playboy Slot which is a 243 Ways to Win game that gives you a choice of 4 different bonus games when you trigger the free spins. And Miss Midas can turn adjacent symbols into gold.
Types of Slots
We have hundreds of online slot machines here at Wombat Casino- choose from classic 3 Reel games, 5 Reel video slots, Pub Slots, Jackpot slots, and bonus games.
Types of Slots
Many people are not aware of the fact that there are various types of online slots. There are quite a few different online and mobile slot types:
The Three Reel Slot
3 Reel Slots are simple, “no frills” games. They are getting harder and harder to find these days, as all of the development tends to be in the popular 5 reel video slot category, but if you prefer a simpler game there are some good options.
Lately, there has been something of a resurgence in this area, particularly from ELK Studios. They might look like 3 reelers when you first fire them up, but wait until you see all of the updated features. These are bright and shiny variations on a classic theme! Try Vegas Diamonds for example.
Five Reel Slots
If you are looking for where the innovation happens, then you’ll need to head for the 5 reel slots section. We have a big selection of HD blockbuster titles- choose from ever popular classics such as the Tomb Raider 2 slot, to newer games like the Book of Dead slot that boast multiple bonus and wild features.
Our Jackpot slots have progressive jackpots that build over time as players feed money into the games here at Wombat Casino and at other casinos that feature the same games across a network. A proportion of all of the bets go into a pool that goes up and up until someone hits the jackpot and flushes it out. Choose from Mega Moolah, Stampede (with a Super Jackpot) or the Champions of Valhalla Jackpot game.
Pub Slots and Fruit Machines.
Some of our more popular games, like BarX Hot Spins, are based on the games that you might see down the pub. They’re easy to understand and fun to play.
So that´s the weird and wonderful world of mobile slots and online games my Wombat friends. There´s only one thing for certain: the new features and bonus tricks aren´t going to stop coming, so stay tuned.
