The bulk of most land-based casinos' game collection consists of slot machines (or pokie machines, if you're an Aussie or Kiwi) and online casinos are no different. If anything, casinos online can boast hundreds or even thousands more slot games than their bricks-and-mortar rivals. Online slot games we've highlighted below contain a mixture of old classics and newly released games by Betsoft, Microgaming and NetEnt (more suppliers to follow soon).
Online slots have considerably more variety, features, interactivity, storylines, bonus rounds and for the most part, better paying odds, than anything you'll find in a gambling establishment or even in a sizeable casino. The sheer floor-space required to compete with online casinos is not feasible. Try fitting 4000 different slot games onto a casino floor - Las Vegas casinos boast when they reach ALMOST 2000 games (including duplicates of the same game) and they'll always be playing catch-up as lots of new online casino games (mostly slots) are released every week by ever more-talented game design teams. If you're a slot (or pokie, whatever) lover then online is where you should be winning.
All drop-down menus below contain only Beacon-approved casinos. Simply select the casino you want to visit and it'll open in a new tab/window. Remember that most good casinos allow member to play these slot games just for fun (free-play) as well as for real money.
