For fans of fantasy, there are more ways to indulge their interest than by just playing video games, reading comics, and even indulging in a little cosplay. That’s because the world of fantasy has extended into many different areas. This includes some of the slots games that you’ll find on online bingo sites. Are fantasy-based slots games the new big hit?

Not only are they fun to play, but with many of them, you’ll also find that the bingo jackpot progressive and standard prizes can mean good returns. This is particularly true when it comes to the progressive prizes. These are ones in which a number of slots games are linked together to create a far bigger prize than just one could offer. You’ll spot them on a site; they usually have a jackpot amount displayed, clicking up as more and more is staked on them. The exciting element comes from the fact that someone could win the jackpot at any time.

Thor’s Thunder

If ancient Norse mythology is your thing, then this game should be just what you’re looking for. We’re taken back into the world of the god of thunder—surprisingly, who we also have to thank for naming “Thursday”. To win the progressive jackpot, you need to get five mighty bolts of lightning across the five reels—but you know what they say about lightning never striking twice. There are also a number of bonus features that liven up the experience, including Thor’s hammer, that can multiply your winnings.

Pyramid King

Fantasy-Based Slots Games: the New Big Hit?

Next, we’re off to the world of ancient Egypt with its pyramids, pharaohs, and sacred cats. This is an ever-popular theme for slots games; others in the genre include Wings of Ra and Cleopatra’s Chest. This is hardly surprising as so much treasure has been unearthed in modern-day Egypt, including perhaps the most famous find of all in 1922 when Howard Carter found the tomb of Tutankhamun. The famous burial mask of the boy prince features as a symbol in the game. There are also many other totemic symbols including the ankh cross, the Anubis, and even the mystical serpent.

Vlad’s Castle

For our third and final trip into the fantasy world, it’s a must for anyone who’s into all things Gothic. As the name suggests, Vlad’s Castle is somewhere in Eastern Europe that may not be a million miles away from Transylvania. Its gloomy corridors are home to ghosts, ghouls, and other apparitions, not to mention damsels in distress. This features a progressive jackpot with a difference. It can be won in a number of ways which are triggered at random. 

So hopefully these three suggestions have made you eager to find out more about the fantasy elements of slots—and we promise that there are many, many more waiting for you out there. It’s just a question of finding them.
