We really enjoyed this game and think you will too. Anyone would be remiss not to try Triple Crown Slots, which gets a wholehearted recommendation due to being accessible and having a very nice progressive jackpot mechanic. It may look like a standard fair slot machine—which in many ways, it probably is—but the parts all add up to be more than their sum. Triple Crown Slots is a classic themed game with a lot more than meets the eye.
Vegas and the original slots are what inspired this gem. The premise is the player wants to have fun, gamble, bet money, and hit it big. To that end, everything is as you would expect, and sings in the simplicity and elegance it is presented in. Even without being told how to play, anyone can pick it up and get started in seconds by just looking at the screen and deciding how much money they would like to wager. All the graphics are crisp, clean, clear, and concise.
As you might expect, the headlining theme of Triple Crown Slots is the triple crown, which is elegantly rendered and looks like it could be found in a professional casino. The machine itself is a slot machine, not something pretending to be a slot machine, or a slot machine on a boat, or anything like that. Not that themes for slot machines are not a nice change of pace. But it is equally nice to see a classic style done so well when most other entries in the genre are trying to be many things that they are not.
The real draw here is this progressive jackpot. Playing more grows it ever larger, which gives you an incentive to come back again and again in hopes of winning it big. Your odds get better the longer you try.
We found bets here start at 1 cent per spin, capping off at $30. In this way, anyone can jump into Triple Crown Slots and try to win it big without breaking the bank in the process. Any time you play, you have the option to use between 1 and 3 coins, depending on how risky you are feeling.
Matching enough reels across will result in a win, what you win and by what increment determined by your luck and a bit of grace. Rather than 5 reels which are present most everywhere today in the online slot machine space, only 3 here are present, keeping in line with the style of classic Vegas Casino machines.
Bonus symbols are also to be found, which when matched in a set of 3, results in a jackpot being won that progressively grows as you go. Bar symbols also make an appearance here, ranging from 1 to 3. This should be familiar to anyone that has played an older style slot machine.

Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible
* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets

* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
We think they did a good job here. Anyone interested in long bouts of winning it big will enjoy what Triple Crown Slots has to offer, as will anyone that has grown tired of the attempts to innovate the classic casino machine that got us all gambling in the first place. Triple Crown Slots may look like a standard slot machine, but its progressive jackpot mechanic, strong fundamentals, and accessible nature make it hard to put down. It gets a recommendation without hesitation, and an advisory to play it for as long as you can to increase the chance of winning that large jackpot as it grows.
