Your Guide to Las Vegas Slot Machines

Las Vegas is known by many names: Sin City, the Entertainment Capital of the World, and the Gambling Capital of the World. So if you’re looking to be entertained by live shows and gaming, Las Vegas is the place to go.

It’s also the place for indulging in anything your heart desires. And if your heart desires playing some of the world’s best slot machines, then Vegas will be more than satisfactory. Consider this your guide to slots in Las Vegas.

Slots in Vegas

Slot machines have been around for more than a century, and they’ve come a long way since they were first invented. Although an exact number is hard to determine, it’s estimated that there are roughly 200,000 slot machines in the city. These slot machines are spread out among the more than 100 casinos in and around Vegas.

In Vegas you’ll find both old and new slot machines to appeal to all types of casino guests. Some guests want to play vintage-style games while others are looking for slots based on their favorite TV show. No matter what kind of slots you’re looking for, you’ll likely find them all here.

Types of Slot Machines

Slots are typically the biggest gaming attraction for tourists because they’re easy to learn, quick to play, and most of all, fun. But not all slots are alike in gameplay style, theme, or machine type. And there are many different types of slots to choose from.

Some of the slots you may find include single-coin machines, multiplier machines, wild play machines, buy-your-pay machines, multiple-payline machines, progressive jackpot machines, touch-screen machines, video machines, multi-game machines, Big Bertha machines, three-reel machines, and five-real machines. It may take some trial and error to figure out which types of machines you like playing best. But don’t be afraid to test them all out until you get the hang of things.

Slots also come in many different themes to appeal to players. You’ll usually find TV show and movie themes, but themes might also be based on traditional slots (like the fruit reels), legends, hobbies, or countries.
