3-dimensional entertainment has been one of the watchwords these past couple of years, so it was only natural that the most visually stunning slot machines, interactive slots and video slots, would eventually have their own slot machines devoted to 3-D graphics. The art design and graphical artwork on the 3d slot games are highly involved, so only certain companies offer products in the arena. All of the leading companies eventually will, but as far as I know at the moment, MicrogamingBetsoft,  NetEnt, Caytano, and CTM are the only online casino software development companies which have produced 3D slot machines.

In my research, I found 53 or 54 different 3D slots on the market today, mostly from lesser known company’s trying to gain attention with top graphics, uncommon themes, and the latest gimmicks. A few of the newest 3D games have such good graphics that it’s a short leap to 3-dimensional gaming. The interactive game on the 2011 release, The Incredible Hulk Slots, has art defined enough that it looks 3D to me. Fishing With Buddies and (especially) Sparta have excellent animated graphics, but it’s still a bit of a leap to produce animated 3D graphics. 3D has never promoted itself as having such games, but it’s my guess they’re poised to enter that game sometime soon.

Betsoft Slot Games

Betsoft Gaming is the leader in innovative 3D slots. These are the real thing, leaving no doubt you’re seeing the 3D graphics. The images on these games pop off the page and give a whole new fruit machine gaming experience.

You might be wondering who Bet-Soft is, but you’ve probably seen their products before. Often, they partner with big name online casinos that already have a main casino software provider. Bet365 Games , BetOnline, and Party Casino are just a handful of the 90 different casino sites using BetSoft products.

Some of these games are hilarious to look at. Just looking over the selection, favorites that jump out at me are Scots Angels, Black Gold, Mad Scientist, Madder Scientist, and Enchanted. These are simply beautiful games, though some of the comic art is so realistic it might frighten some children.

Only a handful of other 3D slots games are available to play on the Internet. Of those, all that’s left is 8 more titles in the niche. From CTM 3D Slots, you can play Freaky Wild West Slots and Freaky Gym Slots. NetEnt 3D Slots has Gonzos Quest, Hall of God, and Robin Hood 3D Slots. Caytano 3D Slots offer two next-generation titles in their catalog: Marines 3D Slots and Time Warp Slots.

That gives you plenty of game selections to try for the time being. As these games get more popular, expect to see 3D, Crytologic, Microgaming, and RealTime Gaming to start producing their own 3D slots titles. I’m certain the fact Microgaming has dipped its foot into this particular pool means the other three are already considering counter-measures. So even though I can’t report full 3D slot machines from 3D at the moment, expect to hear about new developments in the coming months and years.

Sterling Slots 3D – Microgaming 3-D Slots

Just recently, Microgaming got into the picture with their very first 3D slots game ever: Sterling Silver Slots. Sterling Silver 3D Slots is a western themed game with black background and sleak silver reel icons. The game itself is comparible to another recent Microgaming release, Liquid Gold Slots, but the bonus wild symbol multiplier on Sterling Silver Slots is more robust. Players get between 2x and 10x on this random multiplier reward when the wild symbols appear. You also get a scatter symbol which triggers 15 free spins when 3 or more hit at once. Don’t be fooled by the anemic 1000 coin announced flat-top jackpot, because this doesn’t take into account the 10x multiplier. The top jackpot on Sterling Slots is 10,000 coins.

You can expect more 3D slots from Microgaming if Sterling Silver Slots is well-received. I suspect it will be, because the game look beautiful and has enough features that anyone who enjoys fixed jackpot gaming should enjoy it. I have no idea what the next 3-D slot from Microgaming might be, but I’ll go out on a limb and suggest the other two new releases in Microgaming’s metal series of slots: Liquid Gold Slots and Pure Platinum Slots. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see a 3D version of these games announced in 2012 or 2013.
