Most people this weekend will lose an hour of sleep thanks to the clocks being put forward early on Sunday morning. While few of us appreciate losing that hour, it’s pretty cool to think that the clock change effectively makes us real-life time travellers. One minute it’s 01:59 in the morning, and the next, it’s 03:00. We have no idea where that hour actually goes, but if you want to mark the event by playing a few time travel slots
this weekend, here are five of our favourites...
Miles Bellhouse and the Gears of Time
This is a quite unusual slot which does a great job at giving players a taste of what time traveling might be like. It’s a five-by-five cluster slot from Betsoft
, but instead of winning clusters exploding to make room for more, the opposite happens. The winning cluster is held in place, and all of the other symbols on the grid respin so that you get a chance to make it even bigger.
Every time you spin, five positions on the grid will be marked with a frame fashioned from metal pipe. Those positions will be determined randomly from spin to spin, and if all five end up covered by winning clusters, you will trigger a Free Spins round.
There are three Free Spins modes. These enable you to replay (and hopefully improve) The Past, enjoy multipliers in The Present or get at least 10 of a randomly selected symbol on the reels in The Future.
With gorgeously detailed graphics, a charming soundtrack and the chance to win up to 1,084 times your stake, this is a great title to start time travelling with.

Wheel of Time
Released in 2020 by Evoplay Entertainment, Wheel of Time is a fantastically original circular slot. It doesn’t have reels but rather concentric circles, and there are three of them. Each circle contains a selection of blank symbols, prizes and one ‘Next Wheel’ marker.
When you press the spin button, the innermost circle will spin. The symbol indicated when it comes to rest determines what happens next. If a prize is indicated, you win that prize. Should a blank space be indicated, the game ends, and you’ll need to have another go. However, if a ‘Next Wheel’ marker is indicated, you’ll progress to spin the middle reel. Get another ‘Next Wheel’ marker, and you’ll have a chance of winning 100 times your stake with a spin of the outer circle.
This is a simple game, to be sure, but it is beautifully presented and as quirky as you’d want a time-themed slot to be.

Trip to the Future
Marty McFly went Back to the Future in a DeLorean, and Trip to the Future gives you the chance to head in the same direction in a yellow taxi cab. This is a five-reel slot from Evoplay, which takes place on an unnamed street. Symbols on the reels include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, the taxi driver’s hat, a nodding dog, a stick shift, a taximeter and a taxi roof light. A yellow taxi cab serves as a wild.
Winning combinations of symbols will disappear from the grid so that a cascade can take place, and consecutive cascades help to fill a Free Spins meter on the right of the screen. Trigger Free Spins, and you’ll be helped to win with a special Wild Multiplier taxi that can increase your winnings by five times.

Time Travel Tigers
Human beings don’t have a monopoly on time travel, as proven in a game called Time Travel Tigers. This title was released by Yggdrasil Gaming in 2018, and it takes place in the private home of a genius inventor, who just happens to be a tiger. He’s built a time machine in his rather grand house, and it looks a lot like a slot with five reels.
The symbols on the reels include the playing card suits of hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds, as well as a variety of souvenirs gathered from previous time-travelling adventures.
Land three or more Free Spins symbols, and you’ll trigger a random Free Spins mode. There are four possibilities here, so you could be transported to the Egyptian Era, Medieval Era, Prehistoric Era or Future Era. Each Era boasts different features, including diagonal wilds on every spin, cluster wilds on every spin, adjacent wilds on every spin and random wilds on every spin.
If you’re a fan of Victorian-era artwork but with tigers, this is the game for you. Just don’t complain about having lost all sense of time after you’ve finished playing!

Our last selection for anyone who wants to toy with time this weekend is Wild O’Clock from Red Tiger
. Released in 2020, this is a six-reel game which is presented as part of a grandfather clock. Symbols include the playing card suits of clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades, clock hands, a pocket watch, an alarm clock, a sand timer and a sundial. A moon and sun symbol serves as a Wild.
What makes this game particularly special - apart from the intricate artwork and mechanical sound effects - is the fact that it is surprisingly predictable. Well, in one respect, at least, Every time you spin the reels, a Roman numeral counter at the top of the game will increase by one. On every 12th spin, a random number of super wilds will show. These occupy the height of their reels, making it easier to land winning combinations.
Get three Clock Spins symbols on the reels, and you’ll trigger 12 Clock Spins. These are free spins but with an added multiplier that increases as you progress. Even better, on the 12th Clock Spin you’ll get a random number of super wilds, just as in the main game, but now with the special multiplier in force!
