Free Slots for Fun
Welcome to Free Slots For Fun. The Goldbeard slot (above) is an online-only game developed by Realtime Gaming and available at several online casinos. Some of the safer and reputable operators are listed around the site. This slot game forms part of RTG's "Real Series" slots which comprises over 50 different slot games and many of which feature on this site.
Playing Slots Online
The free slots on Free Slots For Fun are provided by the online casino software provider, RTG and a small selection of other games from Microgaming and Aristocrat, although whether you can access them in fun mode will depend on where you live due to some geographical restrictions.
All the slot games featured are available with no download & no registration requirement. If you do decide you want to play them for real money at some point just click on any of the casinos I've recommended around the site (I've played at all of them myself) and either download the software or, where applicable, sign up to play them in a browser ('Instant Play'). With the download version of each casino, you will get access to over 75 similar slots while the no-download versions have around half the games but either version offers you both real-money and free to play slots.
Tips For Inexperienced Online Players
As to the second question of the casinos themselves, it's a mixed bag! If you stick to the casinos I have listed on this site, all of which I have played at personally, it's probably a "yes" as these are reputable and long-standing operators.
Typically, the expected return on the slot games featured here is between 91% and 98% which is identical whether you are playing for fun or for real money - that's no worse than you will find in land based casinos. With these slot games the software provider chooses not to publish the RTP of the games so the percentage payouts are based largely on what we are told. It's a shame RTG don't take a leaf out of IGT's book and publish all the expected returns on each of their slot games - this would allay any fears that they aren't fair.
As for the online casino issue, it is fair to say that casinos using RTG software (which form the bulk of the slots you'll find at Free Slots For Fun) are a mixed bag. What I can say is that I have played over 100 online casinos during the past 10 years and for the most-part, the casinos I list on this website are ones I've played at myself and trust.
Before you play slots online for real money however, always check your local laws regarding online gambling and always read the terms and conditions at any casino before you deposit.
Free Slots From IGT & WMS
Vegas regulars will probably also be interested to know that some of the WMS slot machines are now in online format although not available to players in many countries (laws - pah!). You can check out some videos of them on the WMS Slots website. Hopefully I'll have some free slots from WMS here at some point too.
Next in the popularity stakes it's a toss-up between Achilles which has two ways of triggering free spins with 2x and 3x multipliers and Aztec's Treasure which has stacked wilds and a free spin feature with constant re-triggers.
All of the free slots here in fact have a free spin feature and another tha is really popular is one of my own favorites, Ronin. The feature actually awards one of 3 free spin features randomly and the one that pays best is the 25 free spins at 3x. Again, this can re-trigger.
If you are familiar with IGT's Cleopatra slot then I have a game up on here called Cleopatra's Gold which is a clone of the game in terms of game-play and theme although it feels quite different. The feature awards 15 free spins at 3x as well! Finally and along similar lines, you might also like to try Rain Dance which awards 10, 25 or even 100 free spins depending on how many scatters trigger the feature. That is my all-time favorite RTG game in fact!
