Whilst bingo may be the forte of many of our players here at Crown Bingo, our huge selection of online slots have proven to be a popular choice amongst a lot of players too! We’ve got everything from high street games where you can find some of the best-known slots, to the famous Megaways slots with plenty of potential for some king-sized wins.
However, if you’re new to the world of online slots, or you simply prefer to play slots with a more simple design, you’ve come to the right place! It can be quite confusing to get your head around how slots work, Here we’ll take a look at some of the slots with a more simple design, with everything from uncomplicated graphics to the easy to follow bonus features and overall aesthetic. Whilst we do offer some epic titles here at Crown Bingo (some of which may better resemble a blockbuster movie than a slot!), some players would rather opt for a more straightforward game. This is particularly if you’re a newbie to online slots - and we’re here to help!
What makes a slot simple?
So let’s get straight into it… what defines a slot that is ‘simple’?
Whilst some players may prefer online slots to have a smaller number of reels to play on, others may prefer the retro fruit machine style of online slots you can find in your local pub, which we all know as the original way of playing slots! That’s why our casino experts have handpicked some of our most straightforward slots for you kings and queens who think simplicity is key when you’re spinning your favourite games.
Take a look below where we’ve divided up our simple slots into three categories - so you can choose exactly what you’re looking for!
Slots with a simple reel design
The number of paylines in a slot refers to a line on the reels where a winning combination can be found. Most online slots allow for you to set the number of paylines you want to play with, with some modern titles having hundreds or even thousands of paylines for you to play on. However, some slots have just one payline, which is a feature of classic titles with only three reels, which can be considered as the original slots of the industry.
Rainbow Riches slot
Rainbow Riches is super popular, and super straightforward! With up to 20 paylines if you choose to play with them all, it shows you exactly how a winning combination is formed visually by highlighting each payline in a different colour. As you can see in the images, payline 1, 2, 3 and 4 have been highlighted, which means they are playing with four paylines and any winning combinations landing across those four reels will secure a cash reward. If you want to go really simple, you can go down to one payline at just 5p a spin!
To land a winning combination on Rainbow Riches, all you need to do is match three or more symbols on any payline, beginning from reel 1 on adjacent reels. For example, you could match 3 J symbols on the middle row on reels 1, 2 and 3 to achieve a win.
Fishin’ Frenzy slot
Fishin’ Frenzy may be one of the most well-known slots in the online casino world, but it’s also got a fantastic looking reel design which really is as simple as it gets when it comes to slots. Following the same five reel, three row format as Rainbow Riches, Fishin’ Frenzy offers up to a maximum of 10 paylines. To form a winning combination, simply land three or more of the same symbol on any one payline, from left to right - simple!
Retro classic slots
Retro classic slots are making a big comeback in the online casino world! With many players now opting to play games on their mobile phones, retro slots have become a popular choice with their simplistic take on graphics and overall reel design. Some players just want a slot where they can land a win, without any of the fuss that comes with it - and that’s exactly what our retro classic slots are perfect for!
Fruit Stack Deluxe slot
Now it wouldn’t be a retro classic slot without a fruity addition thrown into the mix! Fruit Stack Deluxe is perfect for the newbies to the slot world, or even the veterans who want to enjoy a blast from the past. With a simple reel design, retro fruit symbols and an overall appearance which looks exactly like a real life slot machine, Fruit Stack Deluxe is as simple as it gets when it comes to slots.
Action Bank slot
Despite not particularly looking like a retro reeled slot initially, Action Bank gives us all the nostalgic vibes! With 20 paylines and the same classic 5x3 reel layout, this slot packs the traditional X, O and Bar symbols which you would find on the reels of old-style slot machines. There are some additional bonus features on this slot which could land you some potentially enormous wins however, making it ideal for those who want the simple design as well as the big win potential!
Slots with simple bonus features
Of course, we all want as many bonus features jam-packed into a slot as possible, but what we really want is to understand fully how these bonus features work. Whilst some slots will reward players with just free spins as their bonus, others can combine multipliers, wilds and bonus features that are unique to that slot entirely. Here, we take a look at a couple of Crown Bingo slots which make bonus features feel as easy as Sunday morning.
NetEnt’s Starburst slot likes to keep things simple when it comes to bonus features. This dazzling slot doesn’t feel the need to over-complicate such an already fantastic game, with Starburst Wilds as the sole bonus feature it comes with. But don’t be fooled by this, Starburst remains the most popular online slot of all time - proving that simple slots pack just as much of a punch as the others! This feature simply substitutes all symbols for wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4. The Starburst Wild then expands over the entire reel, giving you a wild reel. This reel remains locked in position and a free re-spin is awarded. If another Starburst Wild appears, the process is repeated until no more Wilds land on the reels.
7s Deluxe slot
7s Deluxe is certainly a notable mention when it comes to the more simply designed slots. That's because this smash-hit slot not only comes with the retro-classic symbols and appearance, but it also boasts a really straightforward reel design which it's well known for amongst players. Producers Reel Time Gaming decided not to overcomplicate things with this slot by drawing the focus to the huge winning potential of the icons, rather than ladening it with complicated bonus features. And the result of this? A simple and enjoyable game, with the potential to land up to 250x your bet by landing 3 of the Flaming 77 symbols.
