In December 1903 the Wright brothers created aviation history by making the first powered airplane flight. In 1938 President Roosevelt acknowledged their contribution by proclaiming the birthday of Orville Wright, August 19, as National Aviation Day. Though the Wright brothers were American, today the entire world is benefiting from their invention. Online casino software providers have developed several slots machines based on the aviation theme. Microgaming is one of the leading software providers and offers a variety of such online slots games.

Over a hundred years before the achievement of the Wright brothers, hot air balloons were used for flight. Today they occupy the recreational aviation space. Microgaming offers an online slot titled Hot Air based on this. Hot air balloons dot the skies behind the reels. The pilot is the wild symbol and the hot air balloon is the scatter symbol. Other thematic symbols include the bird, the old fashioned propeller air plane and the picnic hamper that is carried on hot air balloons today. Hot Air offers a free spins feature with 10 free spins at doubled payouts. During the free spins each pilot symbol awards a Hot Spin and each balloon symbol enhances the multiplier by 1. After the free spins the accumulated Hot Spins are played out.

Aerial stunts is another recreational aviation activity. The Microgaming online slot game Stunt Pilot depicts this. The pilot is the wild symbol and the airplane is the scatter symbol. The other thematic symbols include the goggles and the headset that the pilot wears and the trophy awarded to the best stunt pilot. The Stunt Feature is the highlight of this slot game. When the feature is triggered the player chooses three stunts for the pilot to perform. The total score of all three stunts is the number of free spins awarded. If the pilot crashes out in any of the stunts, the player has to be satisfied with the default three free spins.

The romance of air warfare came to the fore in the two World Wars. Microgaming Reel Baron takes a somewhat comic look at aviation in WWI. The main symbols are a number of typical WWI type aircraft, including a pink one piloted by a woman. The other symbols include a club shaped medal, a bomb with a $ sign, the Zeppelin and old fashioned goggles. The animations are a treat to watch and some of them are worth more than the payouts they offer. Reel Baron offers a very lucrative free spins game. The multiplier increases by 1 after each free spin. Therefore the tenth free spin has a multiplier of ten times.

Bomber Girls moves forward to WWII. The bomber girls are six sexy females who perform various activities associated with wartime aviation. The bombs, aircraft and goggles have become modern when compared to their WWI counterparts. The compass symbol triggers up to 14 free spins with a multiplier of up to three times. The highlight of Microgaming Bomber Girls is the High Low Bonus Game. Players have to guess whether the next card revealed will be higher or lower. If successful they can repeat this four times with doubled payouts each time.

All these aviation themed slots are live at all Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Crazy Vegas, Platinum Play, Mummy's Gold and River Belle.
