Modern Entertainment with Retro Slots
   Nostalgia is a strong emotion. Whether it is old movies, photographs, or memories of happy days spent playing games with friends, the past is always hard to forget. When we look at shops, videos or even music these days, there is still a hint of nostalgia present in one form or another. Every day there is news about a remake of an old classic movie. Musicians from a few decades ago are coming back for that “one last” tour. Also, vintage fashion is no longer a trend, but a whole new lifestyle. However, this revival of the old often takes on a more modern approach, and that is where things get interesting.
   Take a look at the gaming world. Recently, most of the major console manufacturers released older versions of their games in a new avatar. Present in select mini consoles these limited number of games have been enough to reignite people’s passion for playing video games the old way.
   A similar resurrection is noticeable in slots. One of the most popular casino games, slots have not only taken an online persona but are now available in theme-based options that cater to different tastes. Among these themes is an entire genre of retro games linked with classic movies, the old style of gambling, and even sports. Easy to play, fun to make money with, and mobile, here are some of the best retro slots out there.

Break Away
   Sports and nostalgia go hand in hand, and Microgaming has released one of the best sports-based online slots in the market right now. In fact, it is so good that the closest thing that can replicate the excitement of the slot is online betting on a real-life ice hockey game. With 5 reels and 243 ways to win, Break Away has everything you can expect from an ice hockey game including pucks, players and referees. The video slot guarantees to take you back to some of your fondest sports playing and watching memories.

Retro Reels
   When it has retro in its name, then there is no question about it not being one. The classic fruit machines get a makeover with this 5-reel and 20-payline slot which is as colourful in appearance as you will be once you end up making some cash from it. Moreover, there are bonus rounds and free spins galore to help you win more.

Gangsters
   It’s time to light up your cigar and settle down for some gangster fun with this 5-reel and a 25-payline slot that features everything from a gramophone and hitmen to a Tommy gun and of course bags of money. The playability factor is friendly and secure, whereas the nostalgic factor is quite high, especially if you grew up watching all those gangster movies.

Cherry Red
   When it comes to slots, it doesn’t get any more retro than this. A single payline, three reels and classic symbols like bells and 7s, Cherry Red, is the original slot. There are bonuses aplenty here from multipliers to wild symbols and a chance to win a jackpot of up to 1600 coins.

This ver­sion of Arcade Fruit Machine was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
