Several years ago, when I first visited Vegas, I probably had the same reaction that many people have. I was pretty much awestruck by the sheer size of the casinos and the vibrant atmosphere that just carries you along for days on end until you hit exhaustion point - or you run out of money!

That was when the idea for the Online Casinos Vegas ("OCV") site sprung up: it seemed a natural progression for the big Vegas casinos to launch online at some point. But I hadn't allowed for the fact that opposition at Federal level would mean that this wouldn't happen for years. So with the idea of Vegas online casinos a distant pipe dream, I decided to take some of the well-known Vegas slots like IGT's famous Cleopatra slot, their popular Pharaoh's Fortune and the seminal 'Tumbling Reels' game, Davinci Diamonds to give OCV a focus until that day arrived.

What happened next is that the site started to get really popular and the free slots now attract 1000's of visitors every day so, as you can see from the panels below, I have expanded the slots to include many of the most popular Vegas games which are available to play online. WMS, IGT, Aristocrat and Novomatic slots feature alongside a handful of online-only games and I add new ones on a regular basis.

Below are links to the free slots on OCV. No registration is required to play them and they are all no-download "Instant Play' games although some games are blocked by the providers in countries where playing online casinos is either illegal or unregulated.

If you want some more recommendations to get you started then, aside from the games mentioned above and the popular Monopoly slots now featured on OCV, my favorites include the 243-ways game Sovereign Of The Seven Seas and WMS's unusual and highly volatile 'Money Burst' slot, Bruce Lee. Players who visit OCV also seem to be drawn towards Aristocrat's Pompeii slot and another 243-ways game, Choy Sun Doa along with WMS Gaming's flagship Super Jackpot Party slot.

Some of my favorite Vegas-style slots that you can play online here at OCV include one of several Elvis slots, the very popular land-based Wolf Run slot and both versions of IGT's mega-popular Cleopatra. And I shouldn't forget arguably the most popular franchise of all time is IGT's Wheel of Fortune slots which are apparently still the most popular games out there according to a 2013 study.

Besides those IGT games, I have also put up a selection of other slots from dedicated online casino software providers like Microgaming and Playtech, some of which easily rival the slot machines you see in Vegas casinos and there are even a few WMS slot machines lurking on the site now.

Unfortunately for US players though, because IGT do not allow US residents to play their games online for real money right now, they sometimes block fun-play mode too - not just on my site but on every website. This includes games like the Diamond Queen slot and Cats but the good news is that the Cleopatra slots and Pharaohs Fortune can still be played for fun by everyone, right here on Online Casinos Vegas!

Those players who can access IGT's other online slots here at OCV might also want to look out for the Multiway Xtra slots like Treasures of Troy (1024 lines) and Siberian Storm (720 lines) which OCV now provides. Regarding slot games that are exclusive to online casinos, check out the incredibly popular Thunderstruck slot and what has to be my favorite pice of eye-candy: Playtech's movie-themed Gladiator slot (also worth mentioning here is Playtech's The Mummy slot). The game-play has expanding scatters too (inspired no doubt by the immensely popular cult slot game Book Of Ra by Novomatic), a feature which I have grown to love!

Many of the slots in the panel above are exclusive to online casinos, although I have seen a cabinet with Microgaming slot games at a trade show, so they may crop up across Nevada yet! The majority of the IGT Slots and WMS games on OCV are exact reproductions of their land-based counterparts but here are a couple of exceptions. For example, IGT's Star Trek slot is based on the movie and totally different to the WMS games you see in Vegas casinos. Some of these online-only games, like Full Moon Fortunes actually deserve a land-based presence if you ask me - there are some great little-known slots here if you have the time to look.

In addition to the slot machines, I've also added a handful of classic casino games which you can play by clicking the images in the panel below. As you may have gathered, card games are not the main focus at OCV but these might provide a break from the routine and if nothing else, show you how online versions of popular Vegas casino games are played.

GAMBLING REVENUES IN NEVADA EDGE UP
But revenues were only slightly improved at less than a percentage point.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board has released gambling statistics for the month of July, reporting that revenues were up less than 1 percent compared with the same month last year.   More news...


The Inspiration Behind OCV

Unsurprisngly perhaps, a trip to the Vegas casinos themselves provided the inspiration for the Online Casinos Vegas slots site back in 2006. I stayed at the Golden Nugget, downtown, on Fremont Street but I spent most of my time playing at the Wynn Casino on the Strip and I've since been back every year since 2009, staying this time at the excellent Encore Hotel, sister to the Wynn. Being a slots and video poker enthusiast, the Spin Poker games - along with the second of IGT's Cleopatra slots - have grabbed most of my money, so when I got home I decided it would be fun to set up a website featuring free play versions of popular slots that cross the divide between the casinos of Las Vegas and online casinos.

Las Vegas and Online Casinos

It is worth noting one interesting development when it comes to the topic of Las Vegas and the perhaps obvious tie-in with the world of online casinos. Until recently, because of murky US laws, no Vegas casino has wanted to risk the online market. But at the end of 2009 we finally saw Harrahs taking the plunge, launching the first Las Vegas casino online albeit only for the UK market. Since then, regulation has started to follow with onlie casinos operated by giants like Trump and Ceasars teaming up with established online companies to launce in some States like New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware and California.

...and finally

So the OCV website is my shrine to the slots of Vegas! All the games on the site can be played for free here with no download and no registration requirement. I should extend my thanks to IGT and WMS for agreeing to allow me to hack in and include some of their online slot games in free-play mode for you to enjoy.

I hope you enjoy the slots here at OCV and don't forget to bookmark the site (or better still, sign up to the newswire) to catch up with new Vegas slots as they come online.

Vegas-based Casinos
The OCV site deals pretty much exclusively with online casinos and games. If you are looking for land-based stuff then I'd recommend these casino reviews, mainly because I contributed some of them! The site goes well beyond Vegas covering areas like Lake Tahoa, Biloxi, Atlantic City and other popular casino locations.
