Slot machines are the most versatile casual games of all time. Invented over a century ago, they are there wherever you look: in casinos, in pubs, at gas stations, and all over the big online. People play them for fun on their smartphones and computers, and for real at All Slots Online Casino, where they have a massive collection of games to try. Slot machines can be inspired by an incredible variety of things, from video games to movies, TV series, myths, even toys and nursery rhymes. Sometimes, the characters that serve as an inspiration for a slot machine are quite unlikely, or even surprising, like in the case of the games below.
Thor is one of the most popular deities ever – and not only on the big screen. He was popular even before the first issue of the comics telling his story were published – especially in the Germanic cultures of Europe. While his popularity was at its peak in the Viking times, he is one of the gods never forgotten. And he is the protagonist of several slot machines.
Thunderstruck and its sequel Thunderstruck II are among the most popular slot machines at the All Slots Casino. The games are not inspired by the Thor movie (the first game appeared years before Thor made it to the big screen). Instead, it depicts the god as he is described in the Poetic Edda – a blond giant with a massive hammer capable of shooting lightning bolts on his enemies. Yes, the comic book (and movie) character is strongly inspired by the original myths.
Hades is often considered an evil Greek god – but nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of being a fallen angel, Hades is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon, and he became the ruler of the Underworld (the Greek equivalent of heaven and hell) by pure chance. He is actually a fascinating character, utterly fair, and quite dark – but his darkness is caused by his dwelling place’s darkness and depressive nature.
In Hot as Hades, a slot machine recently released by the All Slots Casino, Hades is depicted as an overall nice guy. His only concern seems to be making the most of his eternal rule in the Underworld – he dives head-first into pools of molten lava, he flies around using his invisible jet pack and playing with his three-headed puppy, Cerberus.
A casual game inspired by a hit video game? Well, unlikely as it may sound, it happens in the world of online casinos. One of the most interesting characters to serve as a slot machine protagonist is Agent 47, cloned and raised by a secret organization and trained to be the perfect assassin.
Agent 47 is the protagonist of one of the most popular slot machines at the All Slots Online Casino. Inspired by Square Enix’s successful stealth video game series, it mixes mystery and wins in a unique combination, with the black suit, the tools of the trade, and big wins all over its reels.
