Cutting-edge graphics, realistic sound effects, engaging gameplay and fun-packed features are why millions of gamers around the world play online slots. This page has all the information you need to play the top-tier slot games available at Jackpot City Ontario.

Types of Online Slots

When you first start to play Ontario slots online, you’ll notice there are many different types. In fact, Jackpot City has more than 400 titles, which fall into the following categories:

  • 3-Reel Slots: Based on the original Las Vegas one-armed bandits, these slots involve matching pay symbols on three reels with a small number of pay-lines. Visuals are often inspired by classic fruit machine symbols like cherries, bells, dollar signs, and Lucky 7s.
  • 5-Reel Slots: Slots with five reels have more pay-lines and offer more opportunities to match symbols, which means that there are greater chances to win. The action is more complex on 5-reel slots than on 3-reel slots.
  • Video slots: These games are inspired by themes from popular culture ranging from TV shows and movies to folklore, magic adventures, space quests, thrillers, Ancient Egypt, and more. Engaging animations and sound bites combine with special features such as bonus spins rounds to keep players entertained. Thunderstruck II, Arctic Enchantress and Blazing Bison™ Gold Blitz™ are some popular examples.
  • Progressive Slots: These games are video slots linked to a progressive jackpot network. Prize pools typically seed from a large number and grow with every bet placed on the network until somebody hits the jackpot. Payouts can be in the millions.
  • Megaspin Slots: These souped-up fruit machines give players the chance to play multiple three-reel, single-pay-line slots – up to 9 at the same time.
  • Slots Tournaments: Players compete against each other in this fun format, tournaments last a specific number of rounds which typically last 3 to 5 minutes each. The aim is to accumulate as many points as possible and win a place on the leaderboard, for a share of the prize pool.

With Jackpot City, you can play Ontario online slots on desktop, in your mobile browser or the app, available on the App Store and Android.
