Brief History of Slots

The story of the world’s most beloved casino game dates all the way back to the late 1800s. It was the Stittman & Pitt Company that first released a slot-esk machine in bars based on poker.

Similar to classic slots, it had a lever to activate play, but was based on poker hands and required cashing out at the bar. Mechanic Charles Fey came onto the scene in the mid 1890’s and officially took the title of slot machine investor as he simplified the payout structure, made cashouts automatic and replaced poker hands with symbols, five for ease: hearts, diamonds, spades, horseshoes and a liberty bell. As the highest payout was awarded for landing three bells, it became known as ‘Liberty Bell’.

Although sadly not patented by Fey, slot machines were manufactured and continued on as a mechanically based game until Bally’s released Money Honey in the 60’s. As the first fully electromechanical slot, it boasted automatic payouts of up to 500 coins and while you could still play using the lever, it was only for show and comfort of slot fans rather than necessity. By the 70’s, the first true video slot was in play using a Sony TV display screen at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. Things were really taking off now and ‘Fortune Coin’ as this version was known, was acquired by the now familiar gaming company, IGT.

As the 90s rolled on, computer programming brought bonus rounds, immersive features and the development of the very first online casino. Video slots grew in complexity incorporating multiple paylines, enhanced bonus features and linked progressive jackpots. As the Internet boomed, slots soon became just as popular online as they were on land, evident in the sheer number of games available today!

Classic Slot Games Main Features

Even though mega paylines and bonuses warrant true praise, there’s still a nostalgia for classic slots that can’t be undermined. So what is a classic slot? It’s debatable, but for the most part it’s a slot that mirrors the earlier days of crank shifting games on the casino floor that were easy to follow and delightful to win. Before animation, before video slots and eccentric bonus rounds, a good old classic slot machine still brought much anticipation for wins even with three or five reels and a single payline! Let’s break down some classic slot features.

Fruit Symbols – Dating back to 1910, one of the earliest forms of a slot machine awarded fruit flavoured gum rather than coins or cash, hence the symbols were associated with fruity symbols of the flavour assortment. Good trivia for pub night, right?

Minimal Reels – Many old school slots visually appear as a mechanical slot. The kind you’d crank the reels of at the Golden Nugget on the original Strip usually hosting three to five reels and one to three paylines. Simple to play and recognize wins with, indeed!

Free Spins – As the name suggests, free spins are just that – free! They’re on the house and no bet out of your balance is required, but the winnings are all yours.

Bonus Rounds – Triggering a bonus feature is usually the highlight of many modern slot games, immersing you deeper into the slot’s theme. The entire screen often switches from reels and paylines to an immersive, interactive storyline. Not to mention they can often feature the most impressive wins and largest payouts.

Jackpots – What’s a classic slot machine without big win potential? That’s a jackpot, a key feature in many classic slots that’s usually the biggest payday of the bunch.

Wilds – They are indeed wild, capable of subbing in for any other symbol on the board, sometimes even swooping in as the hero completing symbol combinations or boosting wins.

Scatters – It’s all in the name as these symbols can pay even when scattered across the reels, and in some cases they’ll trigger free spin rounds or even jackpot wins.

Classic Slots FAQ

Are classic slots free to play?

If you’re playing online, indeed they are. Classic slots, just like our entire selection of modern video slots here at LeoVegas, are always suited up with a demo mode. Free to play using virtual coins, they’re the perfect opportunity to give that retro or vintage game a whirl without any real money at stake.

What are classic online slots?

Authentic classic slots are the original slot machines that ran on mechanics. These days, you can still feed your nostalgia by playing video versions of classics, categorized by their minimal paylines and reel matrix, and basic fruity, BAR and lucky symbols.

How to win on classic slot machines?

Slot machines are ruled by lady luck and random number generators (RNG). This rings true for old school classic slot games and modern video slots. There’s no strategy, skill or trick that can give you a better chance at claiming a jackpot or seeing triple symbols.

How do classic slots work?

Original slots ran mechanically, which limited the number of paylines available since the reels were kept at a minimum. Nowadays, classic slots still provide the nostalgia we crave of citrus symbols, cherries and BARS, but they’re run by video slot technology and therefore can accommodate bigger payouts with more payline combinations in play.

Can I play classic slots on mobile?

Of course. Pardon the tout, but we’re King of Mobile and dedicated to bringing all our LeoVegas gaming experiences to mobile in first class fashion. So, even though they look like old school mechanical slots, you can 100% play them on your fancy smartphone, anytime, anywhere.

Are classic slots popular in Canada?

Yes they are! Only slightly ranking behind blackjack and roulette, slot machines are loved by Canadians from coast to coast. And since slot machines started down in California, and made their way up to Canada back in the early days, there is of course nostalgia for the good ol’ days of mechanical reels that spills over to the classic video slots of today.

Are all classic slots three-reel?

While three reel slots are certainly the quintessential old school slot that come to mind when ‘classic slots’ are mentioned, there are certainly five and even seven reel classics with mechanical or video workings.

Are classic slots better than modern ones?

Interesting question indeed and it really comes down to personal preference. Of course nostalgia plays a role in our love for classic slots, but they are also easy to understand and simpler to identify when a payline is hit for a win. But, better? That depends on if you enjoy immersive bonus features, interactive rounds and gargantuan paydays.
