When deciding which online slots to play here at LeoVegas, one consideration might be which bonus rounds does it have? One of the greatest bonus rounds is that of Free Spins, which appears in a number of top slot games. If you are new to the online casino world, you may be wondering exactly what Free Spins are and why they are so beloved by slot players here in the UK. Luckily for you, we have all the answers.
The clue as to what Free Spins are is in the name, as they are extra spins that cost nothing to play through. These can be awarded to players in various different ways, the most common of which is to trigger a bonus round while playing through one of our online slots. This is often through landing a certain number of Scatter symbols (often three) anywhere across the reels at the same time. Depending on the gaming provider in question, this feature is sometimes referred to as “Free Games”, but it means the same thing.
The number of Free Spins that you are credited with is dependant on the game you are playing and will vary as such. Once the round itself has loaded, which is often played on a completely separate set of reels to set it apart from the base game, you may need to click start to then see the Free Spins played through automatically.
The great thing about Free Spins is that any time you play through a round, any winnings that you claim will be added to your balance and will be yours to keep unless a specific wagering requirement is listed. The value of Free Spins also depends on the slot game, but you will often be notified how much each spin is worth. Keep an eye on the game screen too, as the number of Free Spins you have left will always be displayed.
Now, onto some of our favourite online slots that have Free Spins rounds as part of their gameplay. Remember, you can play these slots right here at LeoVegas, King of Casino.

Whether you are using our Free Spins No Deposit bonus offer or not, it may not be the only time you come across Free Spins when playing Book of Dead, as the bonus round in the game can also offer this fantastic feature. Play N GO’s Book of Dead is one of the most popular online slots we have for very good reason, as it is an absolute classic.
The adventure theme allows for plenty of intrigue and enjoyment when spinning the reels. The heroic protagonist Riche Wild is searching for the famous Book of Dead itself, and to get as close a look as possible he appears on the reels as the highest paying symbol. Ancient Egyptian Gods also appear throughout the game, but it is the Book of Dead Scatter symbol that can trigger the crucial Free Spins round, landing three will see 10 Free Spins credited. As well as this terrific bonus feature, a special expanding symbol can also be chosen at random to potentially cover entire reels during the bonus round.
Produced by Big Time Gaming, Bonanza slot is amongst the top games at LeoVegas for a number of reasons. First of all, visually it is a fantastic looking online slot game, with the reels built into the rocky mountainside and a soothing flow of water catching your eye down the right-hand side of the game screen. In terms of the symbols themselves, the colourful gemstones that act as the highest-paying symbols with purple leading the way followed by red, blue and green.
As well as this, there are some brilliant features too. You may notice the four carts above the reels, and every winning symbol in the game becomes part of a reaction and is replaced by symbols falling from above, creating the potential for multiple winning combinations from a single spin. Plus, land four gold Scatter symbols and 12 Free Spins will be yours. During the bonus round, landing an extra Scatter will lead to five extra spins being added too, with an unlimited win multiplier starting at one and increasing after every reaction. The icing on this brilliant online casino cake is the Megaways format, meaning each reel can hold up to seven symbols, with each spin having up to 117,649 ways to win!
Nature lovers may be attracted by the theme of Blueprint’s Buffalo Rising Megaways slot, featuring a beautiful landscape background along with a number of majestic animals featuring as symbols on the reels. Considering the name of the game, it’s no surprise to see the Buffalo as the highest paying symbol, backed up by the Grizzly Bear, Wolf and Moose to complete a pretty menacing looking quartet.
Another online slot that features the Megaways platform, and each spin potentially having up to 117,649 ways to win is a huge benefit when compared to some other standard slots. When playing Buffalo Rising Megaways, look out for the Mystery Symbol, which is able to transform into any other symbol apart from the Scatter. Speaking of the Scatter, this is the symbol needed to trigger the Free Spins bonus round, with a minimum of four needed on the reels at any one time. Once again there is an unlimited win multiplier available that can increase by one with each winning combination. Keep an eye out for additional Scatter symbols in the bonus round too, as landing them will award further spins.
There is so much going on in the Immortal Romance slot that you could be forgiven for thinking you were actually starring in your own vampire-themed horror movie. Clearly taking inspiration from a number of silver screen outings, such as Twilight, Microgaming have managed to put together an excellent slot. The game follows four main characters, each coming into play with their own variation on the Free Spins round, giving you a unique bonus experience if you are able to trigger the Chamber of Spins.
Amber provides 10 Free Spins, with all wins during the round being multiplied by five. The Free Spins can be retriggered, with Amber’s bonus available from the first trigger.
Troy will credit you with 15 Free Spins and is available from the fifth trigger. The Vampire Bats feature is also in effect during his round, which can randomly turn symbols into either 2x or 3x multipliers with a maximum of a 6x multiplier being awarded.
Michael offers 20 Free Spins, with Rolling Reels having the potential for multiple consecutive wins. These wins can increase the multiplier amount up to the maximum of 5x, and Michael’s bonus round becomes available after ten triggers.
The final round is Sarah, who becomes available after the 15th trigger. If the Wild Vine symbol appears on reel three, it can randomly transform other symbols into Wilds to provide more winning opportunities. Plus, landing between two and five Scatter symbols will retrigger a certain number of Free Spins.
In terms of animals appearing in online slots, the Wolf is certainly amongst the most popular. This is certainly the case for the Wolf Gold slot as it quickly became a fan favourite after its release by the gaming provider Pragmatic Play. The game switches between the glaring sunlight and the twinkle of the moonlight, combining to create a satisfying visual experience. On the reels themselves, things could go your way if you land a Wolf symbol, as it acts as the Wild in the game and can substitute for all other symbols that aren’t the Scatter or Money symbols. Other notable symbols from a player point of view include the Eagle, Horse and Wildcat.
If the sunlit mountains show up on the reels three times at once, the bonus round is triggered. Five Free Spins are awarded, and during the round itself reels 2, 3 and 4 can spin together as one giant symbol with special reels in play. The spins can be retriggered if three or more Scatters land, with no limits to the number of times it can be triggered.
So there we have it, these are just some of the best online slots with Free Spins rounds. Remember to keep checking back here at LeoVegas as more slots are added each and every month, many of which will include this immensely popular bonus round. As well as the superb collection of online slots that we list, we also have top Live Casino games such as Blackjack and Roulette too which you can try.
