Slots are among the most popular games at online casinos across the world, regardless of which software provider is powering the casino. These games are fun to play, fast, and offer quick rewards. The fact that you have a wide range in terms of bet amount adds to the appeal of these games over some of the other online casino games. So in a world where there are thousands of slot games from a wider range of providers, is there one set of slots that is different from the rest? There is, actually: these are the range of i-Slots from Rival Gaming.
The i-Slots are a range of exciting slots that are very different from all other slots available at online casinos in terms of the way they play. These fabulous slots are unique only to casinos powered by Rival Gaming software, which means you get them only at select casinos, giving them an air of exclusivity. South African players can register with any one of the Rival casinos to play the i-Slots on offer.
The entire range of i-Slots is provided by Rival Gaming, a top-notch casino software provider that has made a significant impact on the industry despite getting into action a little later than many of the veterans. It was founded in 2006 and has over 160 exciting games that are used by 52 casino operators across the world.
All i-Slots from Rival come with exciting 3D quality graphics, great animations and sound effects. It is not just the interface that is great; each game comes with loads of features that make play exciting and also rewarding.
Rival Gaming’s i-Slots are fun to play and offer great rewards. These slots are different from all the other slots around in terms of the flow and functionality. All i-Slots are story-driven, which adds another dimension to the play experience. Each story has a unique story or theme and the best thing is the story is progressive; the story unfolds as the game progresses. With each new screen that appears the story moves forward. There are new symbols, fresh bonus rounds, and also payouts each time you win.
The story goes forward with each screen in an i-Slot, yes, but the reverse can also happen. For instance, you could hit a roadblock while playing the game. In such a situation you would be taken back right to the beginning. The games are available in both download and instant play mode. Download does not take too long though the file size may be large in most cases.
Another thing; the game is continuous; if you stop for a while and then come back you get to start from where you left off the last time you played the game. That is not all; the games themselves are not all solitary games. There are quite a few games that are a series; a story that continues across multiple games. A classic example is the i-Slot titled As the Reels Turn: there are 3 games in this series – As the Reels Turn, As the Reels Turn 2, and As the Reels Turn 3.
The first i-Slot that Rival Gaming unleashed on to the online casino industry is the Reel Crime – Art Heist slot. As the name suggests, the game is about carrying out an art heist. There are symbols in the game that are art works including the famous Mona Lisa, and there are symbols out to carry out the heist. The game progresses and the story unravels, the bonus rounds carrying the game and story further.
Popular i-Slots from Rival Gaming include, among others:
