We have done more than few pieces on online gambling and online casinos over in the past few years. Yes, London has several exquisite casinos that tourists and locals alike enjoy visiting, but online casinos are still very popular, in fact, their popularity is only growing over the years, as we predicted in our Why Online Casinos Will Still Be Popular In 2019 from last year.
One of the reasons why online casinos are so popular is the variety of options that players have. There are hundreds, even thousands of online slots, with a variety of themes. Basically, any theme you can think of has already been turned into an online slot. This time, we’ll have a look at the London-themed online slots. That’s right, there are actually more than few slots set in our marvellous city. Well, some of them are based on films, books, or other stories that take place in London, but they are London-themed games nevertheless.
Judging by the title alone, you are probably able to figure out which era is depicted on the reels of this slot. Yes, it is Victorian London in all its glory and infamy. You will see a horseshoe, a pig holding a shamrock, a blue bird and a wind vane rooster on the reels. The scatter symbol is a fireplace and if you get at least two fireplaces on the reels, you will get a prize and a bonus feature will also be triggered. This game was produced by Endorphina, a provider that might not be as popular as NetEnt and Microgaming but has developed a fair share of popular games over the years.
This game has the word ‘London’ in its title, it is pretty obvious what it is about. It also depicts old London and to be honest it is loosely, or not so loosely, based on Sherlock Holmes. You are following an inspector who is trying to solve cases and if he manages you get a price. The inspector himself plays the role of a scatter symbol in this game and when he appears on the reels you will get free spins. The number of free spins depends on the number of inspector symbols that appear – three inspectors equals five free spins, four inspectors will award you ten free spins, whereas if you’re lucky enough to get five inspectors you will get to play 15 free spins. This slot was released in 2009, but it is still a players’ favourite.
Another obvious choice, after all, Big Ben is London’s most iconic landmark. There are few different slot games featuring Big Ben, but Aristocrat’s slot of the same name is by far the best one, both in terms of popularity, but also when it comes to features and gameplay. Well, the two are connected anyway.
The symbols that appear on the reels of Big Ben include the tower itself, but also the guards, the old tavern, as well as the traditional double-deckers. Big Ben is the scatter symbol, and you need it to appear on the leftmost and the rightmost reel to trigger a bonus. If you get additional Big Ben symbols – three, four or five, the free spins bonus will be triggered.
London was the centre of the universe in the summer of 2012. I know, some would argue that London is the centre of the universe always and at all times, but this was definitely the case during the Olympics. The game might not be as popular as the titles listed above, but it depicts one of the most glorious events that took place in London. You will see a lot of sports and disciplines of athletics.
