Each boasts its own theme, rules and jackpots, but one thing binds them together - the speed with which you can get started. Once you've chosen your stake, just hit spin, watch the reels and - hopefully - count your winnings!
Where do online slots come from?
Online slots are based on traditional slot machines, which are informally known as fruit machines, slots and one-armed bandits.
As with online slots, the machines pay out depending on the way patterns of symbols line up on the reels. They're generally the most popular form of gambling in casinos, representing about 70 per cent of the average income for US gaming halls.
Fans of online slots have Californian mechanic Charles Fey to thank for creating the first ever fruit machine in the late 19th century.
His creation featured three spinning reels with a total of five symbols - horseshoes, diamonds, spades, hearts and a Liberty Bell - on each. Gamers lucky enough to reel in three Liberty Bells in a row won the biggest payout - the princely sum of ten nickels.
Since then, technological innovations and the introduction of online slots have extended the lifespan of the classic game by including a raft of new features, mini-games and - of course - higher jackpots.
Choose from a wide range of online slots at the Betfair casino
Whether it's a recreation of a real-world machine or a visual feast featuring your favourite Marvel superheroes, you're sure to find the perfect online slots experience at the Betfair online casino.

Alternatively, if movies are more your thing, you'll be just as spoilt for choice. Among the silver screen-themed online slots available at the Betfair casino are X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Gladiator, Iron Man and Rocky.
