Slot games based on retro video games

Sometimes, new technology finds a way to feed into our love of nostalgia and let us re-experience things we loved when we were young, in a brand new way. Slot games are a perfect example of this, as so many of them are based on video games we loved to play on old school platforms, but with the added thrill of being able to play for money! Here are some of the best!

If you’re looking for some girl power in your casino slot life, you can’t go wrong with a little bit of Lara Croft. The Tomb Raider slot machine is as action-packed as you would expect and the five reel, 15 pay line game is full of Lara doing what she does best!

The Hitman series has only grown in popularity since the original computer game and now even boasts two film adaptations and novels too! Of course, it’s on this list because it also has its own slot game version too! The symbols will be easily recognizable to fans, including Agent 47, drugs, rifles and other icons from the original game. There is a Contract Bonus where you can choose a weapon and target and watch the action go down as the winnings go up! The Hitman slot is definitely a winner for video game fans.

Although the name Zuma might not ring a bell, it is based on the iconic classic that is Tetris, but with a fun ancient Aztec twist. You will recognize the symbols on the reels from Tetris, alongside the other common poker symbols too. It may not have the same addictive gameplay as the famous game, but it is still fun to have the theme running through a casino slot game.

Round one, fight! Street Fighter is one of the most iconic video games from the 80’s and 90’s, and this slot game stays true to the original. You can choose to play as either Chun-Li, Ken, Ryu, Sagat, and Guile in this five reels 25 pay line game, betting from .01 a line, right up to $20 so this game is fun for those just enjoying the novelty, and those big hitters too. The bonus game features a fight between your character and Bison and you get a prize either way – a big one for beating him, and a smaller one if you lose. Now you didn’t get that in the original arcade game, did you?!

If you’re feeling a little nostalgic but also fancy a little risk and the chance to make some extra money too, you can’t go wrong with these retro-themed casino slots!
