8-Ball Slots is a real throwback to a classic era of simple slot machines and it’s a good one too. It’s very easy now to play five reels and twenty five plus paylines without remembering that there was a time when three reels was the norm and the best feature was that you had two choices of stake.
8-Ball Slots is one such machine and it’s attraction is in it’s simplicity; there are no free spins or bonus games, no state of the art graphics and none of the complexity that can occasionally overwhelm a novice player. A three reel slot is actually an ideal place to start if you’d like to get the hang of online fruit machines before diving in to the more involved versions.
This one is certainly basic but definitely fun; the theme is obviously a game of 8-ball pool and green baize is the main colour. All the symbols are pool balls either spotted or striped and numbered between one and fifteen. Like a proper game of 8-ball, the highest numbers are nor necessarily the most important ones with the black 8 ball having the highest monetary value. You can see the winning combos from the screenshot above.
Like many three reel, one payline slot machines there’s a choice of two stake levels which results in two different prize levels. You can introduce more variation to the stakes by selecting your own wager from £0.01 to £5.00; this means your stake can be as little as £0.01 to as high as £10. You can only play the central payline which means the jackpot can be as much as £20,000 for landing three 8 balls with the maximum stake.
8-Ball Slots is well a few moments of your time; it’s an atmospheric throwback to to the bricks and mortar casinos of Las Vegas and its beauty is in it’s simplicity.
