With the award-winning software of Microgaming at the helm, Royal Vegas has one of the largest collections of online slot machines in the internet gambling industry. Microgaming has been developing its software since the mid 1990’s and has since increased its portfolio of games to well over 500. There are only so many ways to administer and reinvent table games and video poker classics, whereas online slots can take on any form or theme imaginable. As such, the vast majority of games do fall into one of online casino’s expansive slot machine categories.
Canadian members of Royal Vegas are privy to more than 130 varieties of online slots in the instant-play version of the online casino alone. That number more than triples when a player downloads the casino client to their desktop. However, the initial offering – due to the sheer size of the software, which tops 1GB at full capacity – isn’t nearly as extensive. When a player logs into Royal Vegas lobby via the downloadable casino, they are given the option to download more games at their discretion. This download occurs in the background (i.e. without interruption to current gameplay), initiated by either selecting one or more games they wish to download, or selecting to install all other existing games. It should be noted that the download casino is only optimized for Windows PC, whereas the instant-play version is compatible with all operating systems (PC, Mac, Linux, Ubuntu, etc.)
One of the more unique features of the online casino is that the download and instant-play versions of each game precisely mirror one another. For instance, when playing the immensely popular Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot, it’s virtually impossible to tell the difference between the two versions in terms of aesthetics or gameplay. That’s one department where the software brand outshines its competitors. The choice of free or real-money play blankets the full game variety as well, giving members a chance to test drive out any slot machine on the lot before risking actual coins on it. The Royal Vegas casino lobby can be personalized by individual players to keep favorite games easily accessible.
Royal Vegas presents its online slots in a wide variety of classes. The major categories include Classic 3 Reel Slots and 5 Reel Video Slots, further broken down into Mega Spin Slots, Bonus Slots, Multiplayer Slots, Ways to Win Slots and, of course, a very lucrative assortment of Microgaming’s famous Progressive Jackpots Slots, generally worth several million combined at any given time.
Royal Vegas ‘Ways to Win’ Slots
Several years back, Microgaming came out with a whole new payout concept for online slot machines. They called it ‘243 Ways to Win’, and as the name implies, there are exactly 243 ways a player can line up a winning combination in a single spin. The ‘ways to win’ feature eliminates more traditional paylines, instead allowing the player to bet however much they wish (within the specified limits), then dividing that amount by 243 to determine how much each winning combination is worth. Thus all paylines are always active – the more one bets, the more one can win.
More recently, Microgaming decided to up the ante by releasing 1024 Ways to Win slots. The concept is the same, with the total bet divided by all ways, but the number of possible winning combinations is dramatically increased.
Featured Ways to Win slot machines at Royal Vegas include the following:
Royal Vegas Progressives Slots
Renowned for giving its players access to the largest progressive jackpots cyberspace has ever known, Royal Vegas slot machines offer a minimum of $1.4 million in progressives jackpots at all times, based on the seeds alone. However, the average total is upwards of $5 to $7 million.
Featured progressive slots and their jackpot seeds (the amount at which the jackpot starts after being won) are listed below. Pay special attention to the jackpot links as they denote which slots’ jackpots are networked, or linked, with other slots.
