Classic Slots

Sort by:

Classic slots (also known as Vegas-style slots or fruit machines) are the games that have three reels and three rows of symbols. They are named so because they resemble old one-armed bandits that typically had 3 mechanical reels set in motion by pulling down a lever on the side. A classic slot tends to have 1, 3 or 5 paylines. Three-reel slots are a good place to start for novices as classic machines offer simplicity yet fairly high winnings.

How to play classic slots games

Controls that are used to change different bet options are commonly seated underneath the reels and are marked according to their functions. By pressing the controls, a player may i) pick a coin size, unless the slot has a coin that is fixed at a certain value, ii) select which paylines to activate, unless the slot comes with a non-changeable number of paylines, and iii) increase or decrease the number of coins per each line if the slot has this option. Some of the buttons allow for making the maximum possible bet with a single click, adjust Autospin settings and perform some other operations that may be specific for a particular classic casino slot. When a suitable stake is placed, you may spin the reels that will then come to a full stop in a few moments.

In classic slots, a winning combination is normally created by three identical symbols landed across an active payline after the reels have stopped, and a payout for the combination is based on a paytable that is often displayed near the reels. If you have more than one winning combination formed on different lines, the winnings are added up. The size of bet and other options may be changed any time between spins.

Gameplay features of classic slots online

A classic slot generally has 5 to 10 regular symbols and sometimes one special symbol: a wild or a scatter, the latter paying out a scatter win or triggering a bonus round. Some 3-reel slots have a Respin option which enables a user to respin one or more of the selected reels while the rest are kept frozen. Another feature (Hold) provides a player with the opportunity to keep in place one or more reels for a subsequent spin. Some classic casino slots are equipped with the Gamble feature that is offered as an option after any winning spin. By gambling the amount won in the latest round, a player has the chance to multiply it by 2, 4 or greater.

Three-reel slot machines are available both for real money and for fun. Choosing to play for free you get the same set of features as you do with real money betting. Free classic slots are a great choice for beginners to understand the essentials of slot machines without any risk to lose money. Though software providers tend to develop more sought-after video slots with five reels, finding an interesting 3-reel slot is not a challenge at all.
