Vegas Palms Casino is one of nine secure online casinos owned by a company called Digimedia. According to this trusted online gambling operator, their most popular game is a video slot called Battlestar Galactica, which was launched in December 2012. This is a science fiction themed slot that is based on the hit US TV show of the same name.

Players can find this slot via the user-friendly downloadable version of Vegas Palms Casino, which is award-winning software that has been supplied by Microgaming. With each spin of the reels there are 243 'Ways to Win'. This particular format is proving to be quite popular among online slot enthusiasts.

The graphics are both sharp and extremely detailed and many of the symbols on the reels are in fact characters from the popular television series, such as Cpt. Lee 'Apollo' Adama, Starbuck, Baltar and Number Six, plus you should also recognise several more of your favourite characters.

This slot is literally action and feature packed, which is probably what makes it so popular. There are two different game modes apart from regular play. One is called the RUN mode and the other is called the FIGHT mode, but the FIGHT mode can only ever be triggered from within the RUN mode.

In the RUN mode, when the Countdown Symbols appear on the centre reel, they will 'jump' (in other words transform) any 10, J, Q, K or A symbol into a Mystery Symbol, which should hopefully generate additional wins. A similar thing happens in the FIGHT mode, but any of the symbols can randomly be transformed into Wild Symbols, instead of just the Royal Symbols.

These Wild Symbols can also split in two, creating even more winning combinations. An additional 5 Free Spins can also be retriggered from within the FIGHT mode. The Free Spins bonus round is initially triggered when 3, 4 or 5 Spaceship Scatter Symbols appear in view. When this happens, you will instantly be awarded 15 Free Spins with a 3X Multiplier. The Wild Symbol on this slot appears as a Stacked Wild Symbol during regular play and during the Free Spins mode.

The great thing about this slot is that the more you play, the further you will advance through the Ranking System of Achievement. Each time you take a spin on this slot, the Experience Bar will increase (from Civilian to Admiral), unlocking new video content as you progress.

Players can now find this slot is approximately 30 other Microgaming powered online casinos, as well as Vegas Palms Casino. Battlestar Galactica video slot is now available in the free play demo mode and in the real cash mode and if you want to play what everyone else is playing on, this is the slot which is worth tracking down.

There are approximately 50 different online slot themes out there and sometimes, one slot can fall into two or more different themes. For example, a Hollywood movie can be classed as having an action/romance/spy theme and it is the same for a slot machine, which can also be classed as having more than one theme. There are also the slots that have completely unique themes which don’t tend to fall into the standard themes.

Some of the most popular of all online slot machine themes include (in no particular order) Sport, Horror, Action, Romance, Ancient Egyptian, Luck of the Irish, Crime/Gangster/Cops, Wildlife/Animals, Asian, Fantasy/Fairytale, Jewels & Gems/Luxury, Wild West/American, Money/Gold, UFO/Alien/Science Fiction, Fishing, Comic Book Heroes, Fruit/Food and Movie/TV Show/Game Show. These are the main types of themes that you can expect to find online today.

Iron Man 1 and 2, from Playtech, are two branded video slots that are based on the popular character Tony Stark/Iron Man, who is played by Robert Downey Jr. These two slots can be classed as action slots, comic book super hero slots, science fiction themed slots, or all three.

When you visit an online casino today, it is generally less common for the slots to be categorised by which theme they have. More often than not, a slot is categorised by how many reels it has or by how many paylines it has. This can make it harder for you to find your favourite slot, especially if you only enjoy playing on love/romance themed slots or for example fishing themed slots.

Whatever type of player you consider yourself to be, there should be a theme out there for you. The extraordinary amount of different slot themes available online today is what makes these games so appealing.

In fact, online slot machines are currently the most popular type of online casino games and they are also connected to some of the largest prizes available online today, especially the progressive jackpot slots.

Whichever theme you prefer, for example the fantasy/fairytale theme, it might be a good idea to also check out sots with a similar theme such as science fiction, adventure, or perhaps action, because you may end up finding several more enjoyable slots from within these themes.

There is also universal themes that most players can enjoy, which are aimed at the wider audience of gamblers such as the Lucky Irish theme, TV game show themes, Pub Fruity or Mystery themed slots. Some of the best developers of slot machines today in terms of theme variety and immersive gameplay that they offer include the slots by companies such as Playtech, Microgaming, Sheriff Gaming, Net Entertainment, Realtime Gaming, Cryptologic and BetSoft.
