3 Classic Historical Slot Games

While some slot games are based on true adventures through history, others might be based on ancient myths and legends. But they all take us back to a different time in history, and that makes them appealing to play.

It's easy to find lots of slots that take this path, but we thought we would start you off with some superb ideas mentioned below. Will Zeus guide you towards some prizes, or will they be in the hands of Cleopatra or someone else entirely?

Zeus III

We chose this ancient Greek myth slot because of the unusual appearance. It has six reels, 192 ways to win, and the reels feature two, three, four, five, six, and seven positions on each respectively. The wild is an ancient Greek temple, so that is easy to spot, and it substitutes for everything but the feature icon. This appears as a hand holding a lightning bolt, which we guess must belong to Zeus.

The feature icon will bring between 10 and a monster 50 free spins for three or more icons. Meanwhile, the base game will trigger a wild reel to appear if Zeus shows up in every position on that reel.


This familiar character appears in lots of online slots, either as the main character or as a supporting character. This slot is the one from IGT, and it is very colorful and exceptionally popular, too. It has 20 lines and five reels, and the Cleopatra logo is the one that can deliver up to 10,000 coins for five on a paid line. It is also the wild icon for the game, and doubles prizes it helps you to win.

The golden pharaoh should be found three or more times to unlock the Cleopatra bonus and the associated 15 free spins. Every prize is tripled in the free spins, apart from the five Cleopatra icons that would give you the top prize anyway.

Jurassic Jackpot

Back to the Jurassic period for this one, where three reels and one payline await you. Watch for a Jurassic dinosaur skull as a wild icon, not to mention a skull logo that can deliver the top jackpot amount to you for playing one or two coins on the payline. This basic game contrasts well with the more advanced ones mentioned above, but it does show how the historical slot themes can be used in lots of different ways.
