You can play in the browser without downloading, and if you need it nowadays you can even play video slots on your smartphone or tablet. Play anywhere and anytime, not a word has been lied to.
Still, every now and then you get that blood-irritating message that you need a Flash Player. Either you need to allow pop-ups, or you need to install Flash Player, or you need to update Flash Player. That’s why it would be nice if the video lock would just open in your browser, without bothering you all the time with these annoying messages.
Flash games: not entirely hassle-free
Of course, in principle we don’t have much to complain about either. Because where a few years ago the games still had to be downloaded, now most free casino games can be played ‘just’ in the browser. And that in itself is a luxury. Still, of course, we have become a lot more spoiled when it comes to online casino games, so nowadays we secretly expect the games to be launched without the need for Flash. Installing or even updating Flash Player is always such a hassle and is, no matter how you turn it around, an extra barrier between you and the final slot. Although most Flash casinos are simply user-friendly in themselves, sometimes you may run into problems as a result. Some browsers block flash and that means you have to fiddle around in your browser every time. Could be easier, it must have been thought.
HTML 5 as a welcome alternative
Luckily, in recent years there have been more and more games being developed in HTML5. This in turn ensures that the free video slots work perfectly in just about any browser, without the need to download anything at all. What’s more, the advantage is that the games look better and better graphically. As with Flash games, HTML games can be played on any device. Some of these games are:
Champions of Rome (Yggdrasil)
Gamemaker Yggdrasil takes you to the barbaric and bloodcurdling exciting era in which the gladiators lived. In the former Roman Empire, slaves had to fight to the death and at victory the slave regained his freedom. Loss, however, also meant immediate death. These fights were held in the huge Roman amphitheatres and that was quite bloody, as you can imagine. At Yggdrasil fortunately things are a bit kinder. However, you are expected to win the fight. And if you manage to do that, it will bring you some nice prizes as well. And that’s also a kind of freedom.
Phoenix Reborn (Play ‘n Go)
Play ‘n Go is one of the game makers that wants to take territory away from game makers like NetEnt. With games like Phoenix Reborn they try to do that. Phoenix Reborn is one of the many titles on the program for 2019 and although hurry is seldom good in the gaming industry, fortunately for this game it looks very nice. You can go to the Aztecs and it is always a fascinating world. Because who says Aztecs, automatically says mystery, jungles, temples and sun gods.
Zeus Ancient Fortunes (Microgaming)
It just all works well in this production of Microgaming. By this we mean the cool Greek symbols, the multipliers up to 21x and winlines in both directions. And we almost forget the impressive Zeus. Of course he is ready for you with clenched fists and the necessary lightning flashes should not be missing. And if he can also win you, it will be very spectacular. Is Zeus Ancient Fortunes original? Not quite. But in any case, it has become a very entertaining game.
Hot Fruits Deluxe Quattro (Stakelogic)
Stakelogic focuses mainly on the development of fruit cabinets and with a title like Hot Fruits Deluxe Quattro you can guess what this Dutch game maker has in store for you. What is very nice about this game is that the RTP is at 96.65%, which is fine in itself. The main prize is a maximum of 400,000 euros per spin. In terms of symbols, it will not surprise you that all the familiar fruit symbols appear in the game. To win nice prizes, you’ll have to pay attention to the red 7. At five times this symbol on a winline, it’s party time.
Vikings go to Hell (Yggdrasil)
This is perhaps one of Yggdrasil’s best-known titles: Vikings go to Hell is the third slot in the popular Vikings series. After Vikings Go Wild and Vikings Go Berzerk it is now time for Vikings go to Hell. And you can already imagine where this game takes place. But don’t worry: it all looks very spectacular and you can also win prizes. And the advantage is that it can be played without Flash.
