Slots themes that players love

slot themes

One of the main reasons that the online slots industry has taken off with such speed and force over the last two decades is that due to the inherent capabilities of the platform there are quite literally thousands of different themes that these delightful little gambling games can adopt. The scope of flexibility is well and truly fascinating – these days you can play online UK slots using a theme from pretty much anything! 

Honestly, there are some barmy games out there today, just consider the outrageous The Codfather game by NetEnt… Regardless, the prominence of dedicated slot themes in the 21st century is an essential cornerstone of the whole industry, without this fact it would look completely different. But what are some slot themes that players love? Read ahead to find out! 

Classic style themed slots 

The funny thing about classic style themed slots is that in the very early days of the online slots industry these games were by far the most common, however this was more because of technological constraints rather than anything else. As soon as developers had the know-how to create more colourful and vibrant themes for their online slots classic style games slowly fell into obscurity. 

But here’s the thing: after almost two decades of colourful and themed slots there are a growing number of slot gamblers who just want the good old days back. For this reason classic style themed slots have undergone somewhat of a resurgence over the last few years, becoming many people’s favourites. 

Irish themed slots 

We are willing to bet that 99.9% of all online slot gamblers would have played at least one example of an Irish themed slot in the time that they have been gambling, because they are quite literally everywhere. The general folklore in Ireland lends itself perfectly to the world of online slots, with leprechauns, rainbows and pots of gold frequently appearing across the industry. 

It was the Rainbow Riches series, of course, that properly kick-started this thematic revolution, and nowadays we would be seriously surprised if Irish slots ever went out of vogue. 

Ancient Egyptian themed slots 

People often forget how old the Ancient Egyptian civilization was, spanning tens of thousands of years and existing throughout the lifetime of several other huge civilizations. The extensive array of art and artefacts found from this era has captivated modern humans in the 20th and 21st centuries, so it is only right that the Ancient Egyptians be immortalised further in the shape of a good old online slot. 

There are countless Ancient Egyptian inspired slots on the market these days, most of them taking the legendary queen Cleopatra as a vital inspiration. 

Movie themed slots 

The slots industry proved itself to be remarkably good at adapting popular movies to make them into slots even in the 20th century, but these days the emergence of online slots has multiplied this exponentially. Movie themed slots are everywhere at the moment!

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

Bridge Mutual Closes Gap Between Traditional Finance and Digital Finance Insurance

Published

on

One of the biggest problems standing in the way of widespread crypto adoption is lack of trust, particularly when it comes to assets on centralized exchanges or complex exploits on decentralized protocols. While it is true that cryptocurrency blockchains are difficult to tamper or manipulate, other services in the space still experience multiple large-scale hacks per month. 

Centralized exchanges are prone to having their funds hacked, stolen, or lost. From the infamous Mt. Gox and FCoin hacks to the most recent KuCoin heist, dark clouds have been cast over the industry for centralized exchanges. These frequent incidents, in addition to the frantically volatile nature of crypto markets, have stopped cryptocurrency from gaining momentum. 

That’s where Bridge Mutual comes in to offer insurance. It aims to give institutional crypto investors a reliable way to offset their investment risks by issuing discretionary insurance against exchange hacks, smart contract attacks, and stablecoin crashes.

How does Bridge Mutual work?

The funds used to insure Bridge Mutual’s policy holders come from stakers who are able to select the stablecoin, exchange, or smart contract that they want to insure. After funds are locked in, they enjoy passive income from investment yields and profit sharing in the system. 

Likewise, the process for purchasing insurance through Bridge Mutual is just as simple as stakeholding.…
