Are you a keen gamer looking to up the stakes?
Well, good news. In an attempt to appeal to a generation of console-crazy millennials, online slot developers are now packing their casino games with the kind of immersive, feature-packed gameplay that video gamers love.
And that’s not all. Many are teaming up with some of the biggest franchises in the world, to create slots inspired by your Xbox and PlayStation favourites. Here, we take a look at some of the best.
In 1993, the geeks at Core Design began work on what turned out to be one of the most successful game series in the world: Tom Raider. The titles focus on the adventures of Lara Croft, a feisty and intelligent heroine who has, no doubt, appeared in the fantasies of every adolescent boy since her gaming debut.
Not only did she pull off a seamless transition from games console to cinema star, but in 2004 this sexy explorer entered the world of online gambling. A brand partnership with leading slot creators Microgaming (the first of its kind in the casino industry) saw the production of the 5-reel machine Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. It stands as one of the earliest and most popular releases in the Microgaming slots catalogue. Gamers and gamblers alike remain smitten by the slot’s best-of both appeal, as it combines the chance to win big with a more interactive, video-game style of play.
Does casino entertainment get any better? As luck would have it, it does. In 2008, a sequel was dropped by the name of Tomb Raider II: Secrets of the Sword. This follow-up manages to top its predecessor in every way, with improved graphics, better bonus features and even more pay-lines. If you’re a Tomb Raider fan, it’s not to be missed.
At the start of the millennium, IO Interactive brought us the first title from the now widely-recognised Hitman series. This prolific chain of console games enables Xbox and PlayStation fans to enter a deadly world of assassination, to test their powers of stealth and sharp-shooting under the identity of Agent 47.
The brand’s success across these platforms (and the release of a Hitman movie) inspired the creation of a 15-payline slot in 2008. This gambling machine successfully captures the dark atmosphere and exciting thrill which make the console editions so distinct. In fact, there’s even a bonus round where assassinating the right character in a suspicious-looking line up could see you rewarded with killer cash pay-outs. Indeed, it’s a slot that hits the spot for adrenaline-junkie gamers.
There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind: Tetris is the best puzzling-solving game of all time.
Since its launch in way back in 1984, the game has been adapted to operate across pretty much every gaming system known to man, from old-school Game Boy and Sega Mega Drive devices, to the more recent PlayStation 4. And not too long ago, slot makers WMS excited fans by releasing Tetris Super Jackpots.
As the title suggests, this online casino game merges familiar building-block fun with the chance to land massive jackpot prizes. It’s colourful and addictive to play, boasting a unique Tetrimino bonus feature. If you’re a lover of rebooted retro games, you’re seriously going to love it.
