Top 4 Gaming-Themed Online Slots

Top 4 Gaming-Themed Online Slots

Video games and online slots have followed remarkably similar paths in the last 10-20 years.

Both have exploded in popularity off the back of the Internet, gaming consoles, and more recently, mobile devices.

According to the Entertainment Software Association, around two-thirds of American homes have at least one resident who plays video games regularly. Fewer Americans play online slots, but now that online gambling is in the process of being legalized – you can expect those numbers to rise. According to some estimates, 85% of Americans have gambled at least once in their lives, making gambling even more popular than gaming.

With so many similarities between gaming and slots, it’s no surprise there have been so many gaming-themed slots over the years. Gaming-themed online and mobile slots can be found at most popular online casino sites.

Want the ultimate proof of the connection between gaming and slots? Well then here are our top 4 gaming-themed online slots games of all time.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Slot

This slot was released in 2009 and was truly a pioneer in gaming-themed online slots. From CyrptoLogic, it is based on the top-selling video game from 2007. The Call of Duty slot takes place in the same sort of setting as the popular video game. The reels are literally situated inside a scene of destruction and the player sees things from the point of view of the shooter. The bonus game is the best bit and it continues until you get shot. Overall, this is a very realistic portrayal of the original Call of Duty 4.

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Slot

 This is another classic of the slot world, released by Microgaming in 2004 and based on the video game from 1996. This game was so popular that Microgaming released a sequel named Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword in 2008. We can also bring you the news that Microgaming is set to release a third Tomb Raider Game later this year to mark the 15th anniversary of the branded online slot game. What makes the Tomb Raider slot so great? Like Call of Duty, it’s the fact that the slot stays true to the original video game with all the familiar characters, graphics, and sounds.

Bejeweled Slot

 You were probably expecting another action game, but there’s no way we could overlook Bejeweled. The original Bejeweled was a tile-matching puzzle video game manufactured by PopCap Games in 2001. The secret to Bejeweled’s success was its simplicity and it has achieved more than 150 million downloads over the past two decades. The Bejeweled slot series from Blueprint Gaming is very similar to the original. The aim is to swap one gem with another gem from a horizontal or vertical chain of three or more gems of the same color. There are all sorts of other cool features like bonus points, chain reactions, and cascades. So simple but so good.

Space Invaders Slot

Seeing as we’re on the topic of classic games, why not go further back to one of the greatest of all console games: Space Invaders. Yes, believe it or not, Playtech produced a slots version of this cult classic – and it’s just as great as the original. The Space Invaders slot stays true to its heritage, with all 5 reels showing with pixel graphics and that familiar 8-bit sound. The Space Invaders slot includes all the same symbols as the original Space Invaders console game, including planets, unidentified flying objects, and of course the space invaders themselves. This game has some big jackpots too.
