Online slots are simple casino games that have the potential to provide large payouts. This is the main reason that they are the most popular of all online casino games. But apart from offering entertainment and the chance to win, online slot games can provide a wealth of information about the world we live in. Players will need to make a bit of an effort to wean the information from the slot games, but it will be worth it.

There was a time when the symbols in the online slot games did not mean anything. But today online slot games are intensely thematic. The symbols are closely related to the theme and it is this relationship that often provides leads to interesting information. A simple example can be had from some Viking themed online slots. The symbols on the reel usually represent the Viking culture. A slot game titled Arctic Fortune has a symbol of a horn with fruits spilling out. A little bit of Internet search will reveal that this is the Horn of Plenty, which features in most European mythologies. It is capable of producing food in abundance so that no one goes hungry. In fact the Horn of Plenty is commonly displayed during the American Thanksgiving festival. American Indian themed online slots are very popular. Many of them use a symbol in which a circular hoop is decorated with feathers and is called a dream catcher. Certain American Indian tribes believed that a dream catcher changes a person’s dreams by trapping the bad dreams in the net and allowing only good dreams to filter through.

There are some online slot games in which this learning process extends to almost all the symbols on the reels. There are many online slots based on Greek mythology but none as intense as Stash of the Titans. Many of the Greek heroes and villains and other special characters are featured in this slot game. Players who are familiar with the subject will easily recognize these characters. But those who are not familiar can have an interesting time identifying them and reading about their exploits. There is Medusa the Gorgon who turned people to stone and Perseus who slew her. The monster Minotaur with the body of a man and the head of a bull fed young men and virgin girls till Theseus slew him.

An equally informative slot game is Scrooge. This slot game is closely based on the novel A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. The characters from the novel appear as symbols on the reelsand the animations refer to incidents from the story. As players try and identify the characters they will be immersed in the fantastic tale with the Christmas spirit.

Some of the most interesting online slot games in this respect are the Marvel superhero slot games from Playtech and Cryptologic. The Marvel comics are more than 50 years old and have built an intricate legend surrounding the superheroes. Each superhero slot game provides information on their alter egos, source of super powers, arch enemies and favorite weapons. Understanding these details takes the enjoyment of wagering on the slot games to a higher level. It is not a difficult task. All slot games today can be set on auto play and while the reels are spinning on their own players can check out the information they need about the symbols and the themes from the Internet itself. By the time they are through, who knows they may have won a packet.
