Slot games have been around for a while, around 100 years as of now, and in that time, there has been a theme based on just about every property under the sun. Just check out some of the titles available at a site like Paddy Power, you can find something to suit just about every taste.

But if you’re after something a little more retro, perhaps with a 70’s or 80’s theme, there are a fair few games to choose from and some are a little cooler than others. Whether because the theme is a bit out there or they just nailed that retro feel, here are some slots that might be up your street.

Retro Reels
The clue is in the name, Retro Reels is a slot game that harkens back to the heyday of the 70s and 80s and slot themes that were prevalent around that time. It’s got a 5 x 3 layout and a shiny chrome effect to the design. The reels are all modelled on the old school icons, the title font looks like the classy neon lights you would expect from a Vegas casino and the effects are pleasantly minimalist. All the fun of an old machine without having to leave your home or fire up an antique!

Was there anyone bigger in the 80s than David Hasselhoff? The man who made Baywatch, Knight Rider and who some say brought down the Berlin Wall. This slot game isn’t modelled on any of his shows though, it’s all pure Hoff. The game doesn’t take itself too seriously though, you can win bonuses from helping the Hoff play poker, hand out signed memorabilia to his fans and even visit two members of his fan club. One of the bonus symbols is a Golden Hoff, which is an Oscar with the face of… well, you can probably guess. If you’re a fan of the man and like some tongue in cheek humour, this one’s for you!

Jackpot 6000
Much like Retro Reels, Jackpot 6000 harkens back to an earlier time when slot machines in physical casinos were a big draw and the style it adopts is intended to replicate that as closely as possible. With a background modelled on a real casino and a simple 3 x 3 display that looks almost exactly like a classic three reel slot, Jackpot 6000 is a pleasant throwback to earlier times with tinny music, simpler pay-lines and a supermeter with a digital display.

Creature from the Black Lagoon
Less 80s more 1930s but if you ever wanted to play a slot based on a pulpy B-Movie, good news! This one’s got all the features you would expect in a modern slot machine with an aesthetic modelled on Hollywood back in the black and white days – shirtless heroes, bombshell broads and icons based on ancient camera, knives and binoculars. The game itself plays like most slots but the aesthetic is charming enough to help it stand out and offer a retro experience that’s a bit more of a throwback.
