Slot Machines - Online Slot Machines
FREE SLOTS CONTENT
page I explain the differences between casino slot machines and
online slot machines. They play the same and usually look the
same, so is there really a difference? That depends on how you look
at playing slot machines. Much of the difference is reduced to the
surroundings. In a casino, there are sounds and smells, often free
drinks and plenty of other people. Most online slot machines have
sounds which you can turn on or off, but none of the other casino
sounds. Read on for more differences and similarities.
Casino Slot Machines
Land based casino slot machines are machines that sit on the floor or a table. You put either coins, bills or printed tickets into them for the opportunity to spin the reels, or virtual reels on a video screen, in order to try to win more money than you put into them. Many casinos still have 3 reel and 5 reel slot machines with actual reels in them. They all have newer video slot machines as well.
Most of the larger casinos also have "banks" of progressive slot machines tied together on the casino floor. These are all tied to the same progressive jackpot as well as to each other. In addition, many casino properties have multi location progressive slot machines, which share a progressive jackpot with the same brand machines in other casinos.
Casino based slot machines often have a well known brand or celebrity attached to them. Examples of well branded land based casino slot machines include:
Elvis Slot Machine
Wheel of Fortune Slot Machine
The Addams Family Slot Machine
I Dream of Jeannie Slot Machine
Family Feud Slot Machine
Harley Davidson Slot Machine
Slot Machine Manufacturers
Casino slot machines are made by, or have been manufactured by, the following companies:
IGT - International Game Technology
Mills Novelty Company
WMS Gaming - Williams Gaming
Online Slot Machines
Though online slot machines look like they have reels, they are much closer to the video slot machines found on casino floors. All online slot machines are computerized game software systems using random number generators and fancy graphics.
Online progressive jackpot slot machines are tied into all of the same slot machines across the software platform, not the casino itself. There are also many slot machines that have their own jackpot, but are not progressive.
Online slot machines rarely have a well-branded name attached to them like those mentioned in the casino section above.
Online Slot Machine Software
Online slot machines are made and run by software companies. Here is a list of the popular ones:
RTG - Real Time Gaming
Vegas Technology - Odds On
I assume you are interested in playing free slots if you are visiting freeslotsweb. If you are interested in playing free craps or free roulette which are two other fun casino games, both of the pages listed above include a great deal of information about them.
Both of them are run by one of the most knowledgeable people I know and well worth the time spent reading them.
