Although this website concentrates largely on online slot machines, it’s important to remember where it all began and it’s also important to recognise that playing land-based versions is by no means a dying pastime. In the United Kingdom the casino industry is expanding all the time, admittedly from a low base but many towns and cities now have a plush, late night venue where you can take you pick from a large choice of physical slot machines.
As well as the top end venues there are of course many other places you can get your fix; we’ve all been playing fruit machines in the the corners of pubs since they first started appearing there but also let’s not forget the chip shops, amusement arcades and various other establishments where it has been, and still is, possible to spin the reels.
There are also now some new opportunities to invest your pennies on many high streets up and down the country with the appearance of Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBT) in betting shops. Remember that dark and smoky premises where customers would spend the day filling in slips of paper and watching the greyhounds or horses? That’s now a brightly-lit and far more welcoming venue where spinning the reels has become the norm and not the exception.
So for those of you who still want to head outside into the real world and visit one of the growing number of bricks and mortar casinos, check back here regularly to find the one nearest to you. Many online slots are virtual versions of land-based games so you won’t even need any instructions – just grab your real-life money and put it into the real-life slot.
