Play Classic Online Slots
When people talk of Classic Slots they will often think of the most basic machines that resemble the old-fashioned fruit machines that can still be found in gaming arcades to this day. However, our collection of classic slots goes far beyond this to bring you an exciting range of games, many of which are far more complex than basic fruit machines but still retain the core elements of a classic game.
Classic Slots are very straightforward and you can get to grips with them in no time at all. In general, a classic slot machine will have just 3 reels and very few paylines, normally fewer than 10 and sometimes just 1. To play them all you have to do is set how much you want to bet per spin and then set the reels spinning. Some games will simply require you to set a total bet per spin, while others may require you to select how many paylines you want to bet on and how much to bet per payline. After the reels stop spinning, you will hopefully see matching symbols land along the paylines and win some huge payouts.
Traditionally speaking, classic slots are based upon fruit machines. This means that on the reels you will see symbols such as cherries, plums, watermelons, lemons, 7s, bars and so on. However, here at Play Club you will find classic slots with all kinds of different themes, making the games even more exciting. There are games based upon food, nature, travel, adventure, music, history, books, the supernatural, and more. Thanks to this, those who enjoy classic slots will find greater variety than they are probably used to.
Generally speaking, classic slots have fewer bonus features than video slots, but this does not mean that they are entirely without them. Many classic slots will feature wild symbols and scatter symbols, both of which can be a huge help in landing wins. It is also not unusual to find free spins round or payout multipliers. There are even some classic slots that offer separate bonus games, but generally, they are more basic than those found in video slots. All of these features can help you land some enormous wins and it is important to remember that classic slots usually offer payouts just as large as those offered by video slots. You will even find classic slots that are linked to progressive jackpots. These jackpots grow with every bet made on the game and they can reach eye-watering amounts.
Delve into our collection of classic slots today, we think you will find a few surprises amongst the collection and are confident that you will find plenty to enjoy.

A Brief History of Classic Slot Technology
Historically slot machines would use physical reels with strips of symbols on them to determine the results. The original slot machines actually had five reels, but three reel machines were simpler and more reliable and quickly became the standard.
At first, there were very few symbols on each reel, just 10, which meant that a three reel slot had just 1000 possible combinations. However, this quickly increased to around 22 symbols, creating 10.648 combinations. It was in the 1980s that things really began to change, when electronics were incorporated into the slot machines. Today, both classic and video slots now make use of virtual reels rather than physical ones and these can have many hundreds of positions on them.
The more possible winning combinations there are, the rarer it will be for a specific combination to appear, so the smaller the chance of hitting the top payout. While this may not sound like a good thing, it has the major advantage of having increased the top payouts up for grabs, and this has made the games far more exciting.
The term classic slots suggests that the games are old fashioned and out of date. However, this is far from the reality, with many classic slots making use of cutting edge technologies to bring you as enjoyable a playing experience as possible.
