Whilst waiting for the next game of Bingo to start, playing slots is a popular pastime for Bingo players across the nation. For this reason, slot, and fruit machines alike, line the floors of many land-based Bingo establishments, and it is no different when playing the best online Bingo, either! Often, when waiting for your chosen game to get underway, you will be offered the chance to spin the reels of an online slot game.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the classic Bingo hall slots that you can play from the comfort of your own home!
Blueprint’s classic Crown Gems has been a Bingo hall favourite for years. The slot is heavily dominated by gemstones such as emeralds, diamonds and rubies, and was actually the first gem-based video slot on the market!
Crown Gems strips itself back to the days of simpler, and faster, gameplay, when all slots involved was spinning and winning. So, if you want to win big in this game, then you need to find five crown symbols on the same payline, to be in with a chance of winning the massive payday of 5,000x your initial wager!
The game boasts 10 base game symbols that you need to keep your eye on whilst the reels are spinning. The first of which are the commonly found five playing card symbols, ranging from ten through to Ace. The Ace and the King are the best of the bunch, as when you land five on a payline, they are worth 200x your original wager.
The next five are the high-paying, sought-after gemstones. The emerald and the sapphire are both worth 400x your stake, whilst the ruby is next in line at 500x your wager. However, the crown jewels are what you’re really after, as these are worth 5,000x your stake when you lock-in five on the payline.
There are no scatter or wild symbols, and certainly no bonus feature, which makes this game ideal for novices, and players that are looking for a simplistic alternative, in a day-and-age where slots are usually anything but!
If classic fruit machine-style slots are more your cup of tea, then you can throw it back with Blueprint’s Hot Frootastic. Influenced by some of the first ‘fruities’ to hit land-based casinos and Bingo halls, this old-school-style slot features 10 paylines and a 5,000x jackpot, but still no scatters, wilds, or bonus games – again making it the perfect game beginners and those looking for a more simplistic, and classic, gaming experience!
Hot Frootastic’s base symbols are, unsurprisingly, those typically found in fruit machines, including cherries, plums, watermelons, lemons and liberty bells. However, the main symbol to look out for is the golden seven. This is the highest-paying symbol and landing five across one payline will trigger the whopping 5,000x maximum jackpot!
Jet off to the sunny shores of beautiful south-east Asia with the thrilling Thai Flower. Unlike the others, free spins and scatters feature heavily in this game, although with just 10 paylines up for grabs, it’s still rather simplistic!
The game’s base symbols are the five card symbols – 10, J, Q, K, and A – with distinctive Thai symbols, including a long-tailed boat, a golden pot, a rare elephant, and a Thai temple acting as the higher-paying icons. However, the Thai women is the most precious of them all, land five on the same payline to unlock the 1,000x jackpot.
As the calming Oriental soundtrack plays in the background, you’ll also want to keep an eye out for the lucky Lotus flower, which is the game’s scatter. Land three of these on reels one, three, and five to unlock 12 free spins, which will take place on a separate set of reels.
You’ll need to choose from three base symbols from the pay table before the free spins will be rewarded, and these will be the only active symbols on the reels during the 12 respins.
