Top Slots from the Past 12 Months
There are new slots released nearly every day of the week. However, some of these games are certainly better than others are. Here we will take a look, in no particular order, at some of our favorite games to arrive in online casinos over the past year.
Jelly Reels – Wazdan
Wazdan have released numerous Hold the Jackpot slots this year, but Jelly Reels easily stands out thanks to its amazing 16,777,216 ways to win. The action takes place on an 8x8 grid that is set in a candy land while players are helped to big wins in the base game through wilds and 3x3 mega symbols. Sticky bonus respins pave the way towards the Hold the Jackpot bonus game, which offers fixed jackpot prizes of up to 2,500x. Taken all together, there is no way that this game won’t leave you with a sweet feeling.
Zombies on Vacation – Swintt
We are used to seeing zombies in many different locations, but a tropical island is pretty unusual. This 5x3 slot with 243 ways to win brings the theme to life through some brilliantly entertaining graphics and animations. Nor does it disappoint when it comes to features. There are five free spin modes to choose from, complete with wild multipliers of up to x30 and random cash prizes, and the game has a top payout of 2480x.
Star Guardians – Evoplay
For many people, Star Guardians was the slot release of the year. It completely reimagined the humble slot machine as a third-person shooter game. Players can choose to play as one of three different characters, each with its own special abilities, and they progress through a number of rooms killing monsters to win cash prizes and collecting bonus keys to open treasure chests. In the bonus game, players take on the terrifying queen monster with three heads, and those who destroy her will win up to 5000 times their bet.
Victoria Wild Deluxe – True Lab
The original Victoria Wild slot was a huge hit for True Lab, so we were thrilled to see it reworked as a deluxe version. Players join the explorer as she searches for hidden treasures in the desert. Along the way, they have the chance to hit big wins with the aid of Tornado Wilds, Sticky Tornado Respins, an Oasis Free Spins round that takes place on an expanded grid, and a Temple Free Spins game with added bonuses. Best of all, there is a massive top payout of 25,000x up for grabs.
Cafelito – Espresso Games
We always enjoy a slot with an unusual theme, and Cafelito is just that. It is a Mexican-themed game from Espresso Games that has replaced people with coffee beans. However, it is not just the theme and graphics that we enjoyed; the game is also packed with features. It gives players the chance to win three jackpot prizes while smashing open the piñatas can award players with up to 8 free spins complete with multipliers and bidirectional paylines, and there are more free spins to be found through the Serenata De Amor feature. All in all, it is a slot that left us buzzing.
Little Witchy – Platipus
There is no shortage of Halloween themed slots, but Little Witchy from Platipus Gaming easily stands out from the crowd. The game pays out as long as enough symbols land on a payline, regardless of whether they are adjacent or not. It also offers a free spins round complete with cascading reels and a payout multiplier. With charming graphics and a top payout of over 12,000x, there is nothing scary about this slot.
Before Time Runs Out – Habanero
Anyone who enjoys the stories contained in One Thousand and One Nights will love this Arabian adventure from Habanero. Loosely based upon the story of Aladdin, the game has an exciting Duel Feature that can see symbols transformed into wilds. There is also a free spins feature in which a huge cash prize can be won by collecting enough gems. Finally, it also offers a hold & win style bonus. Perhaps most impressively, the game has a top payout of 1000195x your bet!
Rooster Fury - Endorphina
Another slot, this time from Endorphina, with an entertaining theme, Rooster Fury, brings together the worlds of wrestling and chickens. While it has the appearance of a classic slot, when the roosters get in the ring together, the wins can be huge. If your rooster wins a fight, then you’ll win free spins. Each fight consists of five rounds, and there are a massive number of spins up for grabs.
Throne of Camelot – Gamebeat Studio
Many of us grew up listening to stories from the Arthurian Legend, and a slot machine that brings it to life on the reels is always going to be a good thing. With its amazingly detailed graphics, Throne of Camelot does just that. Just as importantly, this Gamebeat slot is packed with rewarding features. There is a free spins round with special mystery symbols as well as a Golden Rush feature that gives you the chance to win fixed jackpot prizes worth up to 2000 times the bet.
