Childhood Games Make their Way to Online Gambling Sites

I can remember back to spectacularly happy hours in my childhood, sprawled on the living room carpet with my brothers around a big board game. I can still feel the heavy weight of the dice in my hands, my quiet prayers as I wished for the perfect number combination and those feelings of utter joy as I found myself the winner of the game.  Favorites included Monopoly, Ludo and Snakes and Ladders – all of which are still popular today.

It’s not for nothing, then, that these games have been transported to the exciting world of online gambling and given an adult twist by being offered at some of the leading online casinos today. Monopoly in all shapes and sizes – slot games, instant games, scratch cards – has been part of internet wagering for some time and I’ve always enjoyed these titles when visiting sites.  But now a new addition can be found – in the form of Snakes and Ladders!

I read this week that Virgin Casino introduced a brand new game, Snakes and Ladders to its ever-growing portfolio of titles. The game is a five reel, 20 pay line game so you can expect lots of gaming action and, from the looks of the bonus features, also lots of rewards.  The press release about this new game promises some superb graphics, which turn animated on winning spins. “…snakes biting out of the screen, rasping at having to give away cash to the canny player that sits behind the screen…”

The guy at Virgin Casino who is in charge of new games said that Snakes and Ladders has charmed generations of board game players and he is sure that the slot version of the game is set to become a huge classic at the site.

I reckon this is what makes these types of games so popular – the fact that they are so familiar to us as childhood favorites, giving us the familiarity and security we recognize when we seek out new games. It is not for nothing that some of the best online slot games out there are based on familiar films, comic book personalities and book characters and will continue to be bestsellers for some time to come.
