From gems and jewels, to cherries and bars, Cleopatra and Ancient Greece, slot machines feature varying themes that resonate with different types of players. There are literally thousands of themes you could choose from - so how do you? And what makes one theme more popular than another? Let's dive in, and you're likely sure to find something that satisfies your slot pallet.
The OriginalsWhile you may think this means the traditional Cherries, 7s and Bars, you would be half-right. While icons such as The Liberty Bell is an icon for classic slots today, you would also find a plethora of Cleopatra-themed and Western-themed slots in land-based casinos before online gambling was a conceivable thought. Players love the original themes, likely because of the familiarity, with the addition of modern additions and features, making them considerably more exciting than they once were.

CrimeIt's no secret that crime slots are symbolic of how the online gambling industry got started, and as such turned into quite the sought-after theme. From white-collar crime to bank heists, it almost seems as though every felony imaginable is featured by one game provider or the next. Why players love them? Our best guess is that you get to play on the wrong side of justice while keeping your nose clean, and raking in some potential fantastic wins.

Fantasy and MagicFantasy, Magic, Fairies and Fairytales are those genres that lend themselves well to online slots. Not only can game designers and developers unleash their artistic arsenals, but they also allow adults who play these games, a way to escape the realities and enter unknown worlds, while pocketing a few sheckles (and even at times, LOTS of sheckles). It's carte blanche for this genre, with magical bonus rounds, amazing graphics, and all-around an enchantingly good time.
