There have been many developments in the online slots world in recent years. However, you could make a good case for arguing 3D slots have been the biggest of them all - and the most popular. There are lots of reasons to play 3D games, not least the fact they are designed to be enthralling and captivating in many ways.
But where does that leave classic slots - the ones with fewer reels, fewer features, and a familiar set of symbols to spin into action with each spin? Do they still have a place in the world of slot games? Are they still worth playing?
Classic slots are easy to play
That's good for those who don't like complex slot games. They also provide a sense of familiarity you don't get from 3D slots. So, it depends what you want to get from these games as to whether you love classic slots or not. They're certainly not for everyone, but those who love easy games that don't take a lot of learning and exploring to play will surely love these.
They can be cheaper to play too
With just three reels in play in these games, there is a limit to the number of lines we get. Many have just one, while others might fit in three or maybe five. Even with five lines in play, the total bet per spin is way more likely to be affordable for those wanting to cover every line. You do still get some versatility though, as these games often allow you to play more than a single coin per line.
They can still introduce some bonus elements
Some classic slot games are as basic as they can get. However, others might introduce some elements you'll find a lot of fun. For example, wilds are quite common, although scatters are highly unlikely to appear. You might get a bonus icon in these games though, and sometimes you only need to get one appearing to score entry into the bonus feature.
So, yes, the answer is that we should check out the classics occasionally, or maybe more often if they appeal to our sense of what a good slot game should offer. Many of them are a lot of fun to play, but you'll discover that yourself if you are the type to try a bit of everything.
