There were plenty of stand-out online slots last year, but which were your favourites? Spin for spin, the world of online gambling brought us many thrills in 2017. And, we’d say it’s a good time to look back on the best pokies.
Below, we’ve delved into data from Online Casino Reports (OCR) to see which software providers and online gaming brands brought us the best slots in the past year.
Microgaming is undoubtedly one of the most prominent online casino gaming developers around. The brand brings us new and incredible slots every month, but last year classic titles seemed to remain a big hit with online gamblers. Mainly, Avalon is the favourite with many players who soak up the Lady in the Lake free spins and indulging in the King Arthur storyline. Another long-standing favourite, Thunderstruck 2, was also a hit. Not only are there more than 200 ways to win and loads of bonus features, but the Norse mythology theme went down well with players.
Real Time Gaming (RTG)
In 2017, RTG casinos proved that historic slots still hold muster. Think along the lines of Bubble Bubble 2, the cartoon instalment starring witches. This one has an enticing progressive jackpot and no less than 50 pay lines. Caesar’s Empire was also popular. It may only feature 20 pay lines, but the progressive jackpot kept players spinning all year long.
BetSoft brought us a couple of lighter slots last year with Genie’s Fortune topping the charts. Players get to go on adventures, complete with flying carpets (the wild symbols) and glittering treasure chests that may just present free spins.
Another fun title from the brand was Charms and Clovers. Players seemed to revel in dabbling with the luck of the Irish as they spun four rows of leprechauns, pots of gold and more to hit the progressive jackpot.
Rival Powered online casinos appealed to player’s appetite for exploration in the past year. Johnny Jungle has proved a safe five-reel game to play with 25 pay lines and loads of wild symbols and free spins. For adventurous players, Mystic Wolf presents the chance for adventure to a cold tundra from where you can see spy Northern Lights. But, that’s not all – the two bonus rounds, 5,000-coin jackpot and 50 pay lines are pretty enticing, too.
For players who love a sense of fantasy and magic, Wild Spells from Pragmatic Play casinos has proved a hit. The game proffers up sorceresses that conjure nature, water and fire magic. Each mystical lady can be stacked, and there is a progressive three-tier jackpot at stake.
On the other end of the excitement spectrum, there’s the Dragon Kingdom complete with mythical creatures. This is a colourful slot with 25 pay lines and loads of scatter symbols that trigger multipliers and the chance for free spins.
What Does 2018 Hold?
Slot lovers should be looking forward to 2018. There are hundreds of new slots planned for release throughout the year from all the big gaming developers complete with plenty more chances to win.
