Variety is the spice of life, and there is plenty of variety when it comes to slots. Slots were one of the first games to appear in casinos other than card games. The early slot machines were mechanical contraptions that were known as one arm bandits, due to the fact that to spin the reels you needed to pull down a lever, the arm, and in the days before regulation, they more likely than not would take your money. Early machines used either 5 or 3 reels, the latter being the more popular. It was not until the 1980s that the machines became electro-mechanical, with some of the functions being controlled by electronics. The introduction of electronics meant that slot machines became progressively more sophisticated, and it would be only a matter of time before they became virtual. The first slot machine that was controlled by a computer (essentially a random number generator) appeared in 1984.

Nowadays the UK slots that you play online are very similar to many of the video slots that you play at a UK casino. They have no moving parts and the reels are simulations which appear on a video screen. Five reel slots are the most common and there are multiple pay lines.

Some of the most exciting slots are linked slots with progressive jackpots. Every time anybody makes a bet on these games, a tiny part of that bet is used to create a jackpot bonus. Winning the jackpot is a relatively rare event, which means than huge jackpots can accumulate. It is not at all unusual for jackpots to exceed £1 million, and many millionaires have been created by playing slots online.
