Acceptable in the 80s: Fun Retro Slots

Calvin Harris was a big fan of the 80s, and he’s not on his own - it was the unforgettable decade that oozed fun and glamour.

Cult classics from the 80s are still so popular today that many have been remastered or even remade, bringing iconic hits like Ghostbusters to a whole new generation.

But it’s not just movies that have enjoyed a new lease of life. Retro games and themes such as the 80s have been brought online, with digital versions of much-loved titles and celebrations of the past.

Many players will often read up on reviews of all the latest and most popular slots, but retro-themed games also have a huge fanbase. Here’s a look at some of the best games dedicated to the 80s that you can now play online.

The Super Eighties

If you're old enough to remember the brick-like mobile phones of the 1980s, complete with their giant upright antenna, this is the slot for you. Featuring lots of things that were uber-cool way back when the Super Eighties will get you reminiscing from start to finish.

The synth-pop music soundtrack feels like it's straight out of Ferris Bueller, setting things off on the right foot. The neon pink backdrop harks back to the decade when the prevailing motto was "the brighter, the better" - which is also echoed in the hot pink stilettos found on the reels.

Other symbols include a cassette player, skateboard, the infamous brick mobile phone and a Commodore 64 joystick. Played on a 5x4 grid with 40 paylines, the top prize of x5000 might almost be enough to book a private show with Duran Duran!

Knight Rider

80s slots don't have to be all about fashion, culture and music - with plenty of TV shows epitomising the era. And arguably, Knight Rider is one of the biggest 80s shows of them all.

Knight Rider introduced the world to The Hoff, aka David Hasselhoff - which might be a good or bad thing, depending on your point of view! But love him or hate him, no one can deny that David Hasselhoff was a crucial part of making Knight Rider such a popular show, along with KITT, of course.

Is there any 80s child alive who didn't wait long for their very own KITT to get them out of trouble? Sadly there's still no word on that, but you can play along with the online Knight Rider slot. Bringing you the familiar intro music, you'll want to keep the reels rolling just to enjoy the blast of nostalgia!

Created by NetEnt, the Knight Rider slot is played on a 5x4 board with 26 fixed paylines. It features Michael Knight and Kitt, and with four bonus features, it's possible to win up to x7000. Not quite enough to buy your own KITT, but it's a start!

Samantha Fox

The 80s were the era of "Page 3 stunners", and the best known of them all was Sam Fox, the buxom blond model. Such was her appeal that she soon moved from the world of Page 3 and launched a singing career.

Her hits included "Touch Me Now", "I Wanna Have Some Fun", and "Naughty Girls", - but you don't need to be a super fan to enjoy this slot. Although Sam Fox's music features in this slot, it's more a celebration of 80s culture than a true homage to the model herself.

Sam stands next to the reels, and there are images of her from the 80s appear. But it's 80s fashion that's at the forefront with ripped jeans, fingerless gloves, record players, leather jackets and one of the most coveted items of the 80s: the Sony walkman.

Played on a 5x3 grid with 243 ways to win, there are four bonus games and a top prize of x1080.
