Try Realistic Games slots for vintage gaming thrills
The average online gamer might not be able to list their favourite Realistic Games slots but show any land-based casino regular a Realistic Game slot and their eyes will light up! This boutique UK software supplier does the old and the new of online slots, but it’s their classic slots, played inside a virtual casino floor, that’ll make you question if you really need all those fancy features and paylines!
Who are Realistic Games ?
Realistic Games is a provider of electronic games for land-based and online casinos that focus on slots rather than products such as live casino. The company formed in 2002 by owner Andy Cattrell and a group of gaming industry veterans with decades of experience.
The team of over 50 staff is based in Reading, UK though the company has an outpost in Gibraltar where they hold a gaming licence. They’re also licenced by the UK Gambling Commission which means their game code and corporate structure is put under the microscope regularly to ensure the highest standards of fairness and corporate and social responsibility. That’s 2 rubber stamps from leading regulators who know the price of milk when it comes to safe, fair and responsible gaming.
Although their decade-long journey to the big leagues has been largely under the radar, they’ve made a few headlines along the way. In 2011 they became one of the first software developers to release HTML mobile casino games, and their Super Graphics Upside Down slot received an EGR Operator Awards nomination for Game of the Year.
Realistic Games slots at PlayOJO
We’re lucky enough to have over 30 online casino games from the Realistic stable and they’re mostly the type you’d find on the casino floor - literally! In fact, the first thing you’ll notice about some Realistic Games slots is the setting; the reels graphics are set within a 3D rendering of a casino slot machine and the game uses the action buttons you’d tap in a real casino. Pretty realistic!
You won’t find polished contemporary designs in the Starburst slot vein as Realistic Games focus on classic and vintage slot designs. The Realistic Games slots online selection actually offers more of the old-style fruit machines than the Microgamings and NetEnts, but they balance them out with curiosities like the manga-style Super Graphics series and several examples of Futurama-esque retro cosmic animated (did we just invent a new genre?) slot themes.
Functionally their online casino games are an exercise in minimalism with just a spin button (or 2!) and a burger menu for everything else. Ballsy stuff!

The important stuff
Realistic Games online slots are either 5-reel games with 20 paylines or 3-reel slots with 5 paylines. There are exceptions of course but not at the Megaways end of the spectrum. No, we’re not talking 1,096 Ways here. How about just 1 Way, courtesy of the 3-reel 1-line Over The Rainbow slot. Simples!
Betting limits start at roughly 25p per spin and high rollers will be pleased to see max bets of £200 or more. Despite the lack of progressive jackpots, you’ll still be able to win six figures on most Realistic Games slots if you max out the bet and spin a few lucky 7s.
Realistic Games slots don’t use complex game mechanics like Megaways from Big Time Gaming, nor the promise of spinning pennies into life-changing wins. Most Realistic Games slots machines are at the less volatile end of the spectrum, which means smaller but more frequent wins.
As befits their humble land-based roots, Realistic Games casino games come with a somewhat limited selection of features and bonus games, though their modern video slots like Aussie Adventure have Wilds, Free Spins and Multipliers.
All of their games are relatively straightforward, easy to pick up and spins come thick & fast, so the experience has a more modern feel despite the vintage looks.
Realistic Games RTPs are in the region of 95% but that’s without the handy OJOplus money back you get on every spin of our Realistic Games slots.
Wanna play for free? Realistic Games slots are old school man, you gotta pay to play! No demo versions here, I’m afraid. But once you’re ready to get some coins ready to play the best online slots, check out our Welcome Package and huge range of payment methods – you’ll like what you see. We’re a regulated PayPal casino too, don’t ya know.

Old-fashioned fruity fun with 7 bonus games that as fun as they are jaw-droppingly simple. More please! This game is pure button-pushing random-selecting fun that reminds us why slots got big in the first place.
2. Super Graphics Super Lucky
Hard to choose between Lucky Cats, Super Lucky and Upside Down as all 3 in the Super Graphics family have that edgy Asian pop culture vibe. This one’s a 3-reeler with a gloriously gaudy background and a Free Spins bonus round with an interesting multiplier feature. HAAA YA!

A Realistic Games fan favourite, this comic-book alien caper is played within the virtual casino setting and has one of the best graphic designs in the Realistic Games collection. Wins can get pretty monstrous too. Land enough Wilds and Game symbols and you’ll instantly win up to 40,000 coins.
