Classic Slots

Las Vegas casinos have evolved their slot machines massively over the years, and especially since the 1990s when video slots first started to appear

Popular Slot Games in Las Vegas Casinos International Game Technology (IGT) is one of the leading developers of slot machines and casino games in the world. IGT's Cleopatra, Double Diamond, DaVinci Diamonds, and Quick Hit Slots are some of the most popular classic slots in Las Vegas casinos.

Other popular slot games found in the city's casinos include those developed by WMS, Bally, and Konami, such as Monopoly, Blazing 7s, and China Shores.


How slots have changed over the years

As the years have gone by, casinos began to offer players a much wide range of options, that went beyond the classic three-reel games, and these days most of the games are video slots featuring cutting-edge graphics and innovative features.

Classic Slot Machines in Las Vegas casinos these days tend to feature five or more reels and huge numbers of paylines. This is quite some contrast to the 3-reel, single line games back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

Vegas slot machines also feature popular themes these days, such as movies, TV shows, and celebrities, to attract players. Whereas back in the day, they tended to be 'fruit' based, like lemons, oranges, cherries, and plums, with a spattering of 7s and BARs (the top paying symbols)

Interestingly, the simple 3-reel games are actually still popular. Maybe due to the simplicity, or the hypnotic sounds that they make, or even the the fact they feel 'real', as if they still had mechanical reels spinning.

Of course, the main dra for these games is the huge jackpots they tend to have. For example, it is not uncommon for a Wheel of Fortune slot to be attached to a progressive jackpot of over a million dollars. And these jackpots do get won on a regular basis in Vegas, and casinos across the US.

Almost every week a genuine jackpot winner is announced adding to the thrill and the possibility it could be you next time.

The vast majority of the latest slot machines offer interactive bonus rounds, free spins, and other features to explore.

Older video slots developed by IGT, like Cleopatra remain popular among players in Vegas, but have been overtaken in popularity by newer versions with more features. For example, Cleopatra 2, was followed by Cleopatra 3, then more recently Cleopatra Gold, and now Cleopatra Grand. Each of the games getting more and more glitzy, with better sound and graphics, whilst keeping the original theme and appeal that the original had.
