Developers of software for online-gambling could not ignore such nostalgic moods. From time to time, companies that produce gambling slots delight fans of computer retro-games with funny thematic novelties. These slot machines will be discussed later in this article.

«Worms» is another classic of the genre. Legendary computer game Worms was created in 1995, owned by company Team17. It has been admired by players in many countries. For hours they could not tear themselves away from the screens, militant worms fired at each other from machine guns, thrashed from cannons, laid mines and threw grenades.

The Worms slot machine was released by the Blueprint Gaming studio. They did not adhere to the original design, so the heroes of the slot look more impressive than in the original.

The Zuma online device is offered by Gamesys. It is distinguished by large coefficients for calculating winnings by combinations, the presence of several special symbols and very interesting free-spins with additional bonuses.

Video slots like in old computer games

In Wild Galaxy, a wild in the form of a spaceship flies over the reels. He stops in one of the cells, helping to make combinations. Symbols from such chains explode, making room for new symbols. Even more interesting is the free spins round, in which you will fight the alien boss. You have to choose weapons and take other actions in battle that affect the overall win.

Atari Pong

The Pariplay studio has released several gaming machines based on the Atari console video games. One of these was the Atari Pong video slot. Recall that this was a super popular table tennis simulator in the past. In 2017, it turned forty-five years old.

The most interesting feature of the Atari Pong gameplay seems to be the Wild symbol, which constantly occupies the middle cell in the third column. It acts as a wild card and triggers several bonus features. Wild can expand in different directions, start free respins or even start a round of ping pong.

Tetri Mania

Wazdan has already dedicated two video slots to the iconic computer game “Tetris”. Recall that it was invented by Alexei Pajitnov in the mid-eighties. Both models are designed in a retro style, which is manifested in graphics features, animation level, sound accompaniment, and some other aspects.
