This week were celebrating the 'Best of British' slots - slots games that are inspired by British culture and history. We've put together a great selection of games featuring iconic egends such as Sherlock Holmes plus characters from the smash hit Little Britain comedy show and even Monty Python!
Overview: We couldn't have a round up of the best of British slots without a mention of the legendary Sherlock Holmes. The first of two Holmes themed games in our list is London Inspector from developer Realtime Gaming.
London Inspector is a 5 reel 25 payline video slot with freespins and a progressive jackpot feature.
Set against a background that looks like a Victorian study, the 5 reels depict the Inspector, a Policeman's Helmet, a Lantern, Magnifying Glass, watch and Police Badge as well as playing card symbols.
The pocket watch acts as a Wild symbol while landing 3 or more of the London Inspector scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Game feature.
During the Free Games feature all wins are doubled plus landing more London Inspector symbols during the free spins will award between 1 and 5 extra free spins.
This is one of Realtime Gaming's Progressive Jackpot games with a jackpot awarded completely at random regardless of your wager.
Overview: Little Britain is a famous British comedy sketch show starring Matt Lucas and David Walliams who play a variety of crazy characters. Playtech's Little Britain slot is a 5-reel, 30 payline game from developer Playtech.
The game's 5 reels are set against a simple Union Jack background. The game symbols depict a variety of characters from the TV show (Emily, Marjorie, Vicky Pollard, Dafydd and Lou ad Andy), plus you get playing card symbols, Little Britain Wild logo and a Little Britain Free Spins shield symbol.
Little Britain offers free spins, 5 bonus rounds and Anne's Wild Bonus feature.
10 Free spins are when Scatter symbols land on the second, fourth, and fifth reels. Hit stacked Wild symbols on all reels you'll receive the jackpot prize.
A bonus scatter symbol triggers 1 of 5 bonus rounds when you land them on reels 1, 3 and 5. Spin a reel to determine where in Britain you will play and thus the bonus feature you will get.
Anne's Wild bonus can appear at any time. Anne pops up and turns up to 5 symbols into wilds.
Far from being a lazy cash-in, Little Britain slot captures the anarchic and eccentric feel of its source material and the various bonus rounds ensure some variety and longevity.
Overview: Also from Playtech is Monty Python's Spamalot game. Based on the hilarious Monty Python musical 'Spamalot', this quirky game is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot with 4 bonus rounds and a progressive jackpot.
The cartoon symbols depict Sir Galahad, Sir Lancelot, Lady Of The Lake, playing card symbols.
Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols simultaneously during the main game will trigger 10 Free Games with Random Wild symbols.
A Holy Grail Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus, Scatter and Jackpot Symbols while landing 3 or more Scatter symbols simultaneously during the main game will trigger 10 Free Games with Random Wild symbols.
There's a fantastic selection of bonus rounds to keep you entertained in this slot. Bonus rounds are triggered by landing the bonus symbol (two feet sticking out of a cloud) on reels 1 and 5.
Storm The Castle Bonus: In this bonus round choose one of six spots to place the knights in front of a castle. A cow is then fired from the castle. If the cow misses the spot where the knights have been positioned then you will win a cash prize. A another round will continue until the bonus ends.
Knights Who Say Ni Bonus: In this bonus feature you'll see five knights who are in demand of shrubbery. Choose a house by clicking on it and then return to the screen with the knights and the cash value of the shrubbery is displayed. You must then decide whether to keep the shrubbery and the prize as a Bonus reward, or to choose another shrubbery.
None Shall Pass Bonus: Based on a very famous sketch from the Monty Python and the Holy Grail film, this bonus feature sees you taking on the Black Knight. Attempt to chop off one of the Black Knight's limbs. Every winning strike rewards with a cash prize. Miss and your multiplier will be reduced.
Killer Rabbit Bonus: Select a rock by clicking on it. The first knight will throw a grenade at the rock in an attempt to kill the Killer Rabbit. If the rabbit is killed then all the remaining knights pass, with each winning a cash prize. The higher number of knights which successfully pass the bigger your prize.
Watch out for the Holy Jackpot feature. When five jackpot game symbols land during the free games rounds, the Holy Grail will be triggered. In this feature you start at the bottom of the hill and must choose one out of seven hens by clicking on it. If the hen chosen reveals a cash prize you will move onto the second line of six rabbits. If you manage to progress to the sixth and last level by making the correct pick then either the Holy Grail Jackpot or the Slightly Less Holy Grail jackpot is awarded.
