Slots and bingo go pretty much hand in hand and it’s very rare to find an operator who doesn’t offer side games to their players. The reason why slots, scratchcards and even casino games feature on bingo sites is that they are more lucrative to the brand than bingo.
Some bingo players don’t like slots and that’s fair enough. However they do appear and some people will love to play them. Many brands will even encourage slot play by offering tournaments, cashback bonuses and trials. Our advice is proceed with caution when it comes to slots, especially those that are built in as side games whilst the bingo is on. You can notch up some hefty spending if you’re not 100% sure of what’s occurring.
Slots come in different shapes and sizes – from Fluffy Favourites through to Gladiator, Elvis and Cleopatra! Most have five reels although you will still see some old school fruit machine BAR X type games with three reels. Win lines is where slots can get a bit confusing. Usually you may think there’s only one win line, but these days some have hundreds! The win line number is important as it can determine how much you spend on a spin.
To make the games more appealing bonus features are built into most slot games. These can be something as simple as a Wildcard through to some fun bonus rounds where you need to make choices. The payouts vary from slot to slot and there are some which offer progressive jackpots – this is usually only on offer to a player if you are playing the maximum number of spins at the highest price.
Popular Bingo Slots
One of the most popular slot games is Fluffy Favourites, which by today’s standards does look quite old. You will find it playing on most Cassava platform sites such as Foxy Bingo, Costa, Wink and our own Prize Bingo.
Big Top Tombola is another popular game, but again it does look like it has had better days. This plays at Virtue Fusion sites such as Sky Bingo, Paddy Power and William Hill. If you prefer something TV related then Gala have Coronation Street and Saturday Night Takeaway slots whilst there are X Factor themed games at Mecca.
All the Virtue Fusion sites also have Mega Jackpots – these are Cluedo, Monopoly and Cleopatra progressives. Over the last few months of 2013 these slots have been offering huge cash giveaways – we expect something similar will run in 2014.
