Top 10 Popular Slot Machines to Try
The online gaming world features thousands of slots. That said, you might not know where to begin when looking for the best online slots. We can help in this area by covering 10 of the most popular online slot machines. These games have captured players' attention due to their fun themes, quality graphics, features, and/or big win potential.
1. Cash Bandits 3
Cash Bandits is a trilogy from RealTime Gaming (RTG) that revolves around cracking bank vaults and avoiding the cops. Its simple theme, fun cartoon graphics, and features have made it a winner among many players. This series saved its best with Cash Bandits 3, a 5-reel, 25-payline slot that can deliver wins worth up to 50,000x your line bet. The features are what really set the third game apart from the rest, including a bonus round where you attempt to crack multiple safes. This bonus feature can provide up to 390 free spins and a 23x multiplier.
2. Cyberpunk City
Developed by Qora Gaming, this 5-reel, 20-payline game takes place in a futuristic city, where men and women have become one with machines. The lead character is a female gunslinger who sports a pink mohawk and will blast any gangster that gets in her way. We like Cyberpunk City's high-energy atmosphere, music, and graphics. It has a futuristic Tokyo feel due to the neon lights and big-city feel. Cyberpunk City slot is also notable for its features, including morphing wilds, free spins, and a random progressive jackpot. Besides the jackpot, this game offers a regular max payout worth up to 40,000x your line bet.
3. Jackpot Pinatas
The title of this slot says it all—Jackpot Pinatas is about pinata symbols and trying to win a jackpot. Speaking of which, the Jackpot Pinatas progressive jackpot is massive, ranging from six to seven figures and delivering a record win of $1.95 million. Besides its serious win potential, this 5-reel, 20-line game from RTG has an entertaining, playful theme and a couple of features. The latter include free spins and breaking pinatas to reveal prizes. This game only offers a $5 flat bet, which is steep for some players. You might consider the Jackpot Pinatas Deluxe version ($0.25 min bet) if you're looking for cheaper gameplay.
4. Book of Helios
We've seen about a million "book of" online slots, but this one is the first to center on the Greek sun god. A 5-reel, 10-payline game from Betsoft, Book of Helios follows a female adventurer who's in search of a legendary book. Helios doesn't appear too happy about this heroine entering his sacred temple either, as he has red glowing eyes and two scary supernatural horses next to him. It's worth taking this dangerous journey, though, when considering the max payout of 20,168x your total bet. Features that move you closer towards this big payout include free spins and expanding wilds.
5. A Night with Cleo
Cleopatra of the Nile is legendary for her beauty, and Qora Gaming wants you to see all of Cleopatra's beauty in this 5-reel, 20-line game. A Night with Cleo slot has become famous for its strip gamble round, where you choose one of two flowers in Cleo's hands. If you pick the right one, you'll win coins and see the breathtaking queen remove a piece of clothing. Aside from its novelty theme, A Night with Cleo offers solid graphics and a progressive jackpot that can trigger anytime. You do need to watch out for the 92.5% RTP, but this game can still be fun even with the low payout percentage.
6. Bubble Bubble 3
Another trilogy from RTG, the Bubble Bubble series follows three hot witches (Winnie, Willow & Wanda) as they cast spells that can lead to big payouts. Bubble Bubble 3 is the culmination of this series, offering more features and bigger wins than the previous two slots. Its maximum payout is 4,000x the stake, while features include expanding wilds, changing symbols (low to high paying), re-spins, free spins, and instant prizes. All these extras make for some exciting action, including plenty of animations involving the spell-casting witches.
7. Aztec's Millions
Aztec's Millions is a long-running slot that has been around since at least 2009. This being said, it's not exactly the most-advanced game by modern-day standards. Nevertheless, it remains extremely popular for one big reason—a progressive jackpot that starts at $1 million. This massive prize has reached $4.4 million before being won, making it the biggest online jackpot available to Americans. Aztec's Millions slot has other charms too, including free spins and a max regular win worth 5,000x for lining up five princess symbols. You might even start liking the classic graphics and Central America feeling after playing this game long enough.
8. Lucky Labyrinth
Labyrinth is a 1986 film that involves a teenage girl (Jennifer Connelly) trying to rescue her young brother from the Goblin King's (David Bowie) maze. Rival Gaming drew inspiration from this movie when it developed Lucky Labyrinth, which portrays a similar theme. A 5-reel, 30-payline slot, Lucky Labyrinth has a maze-like setting and interesting character symbols. It contains several features that can boost your payouts, including wild symbol multipliers, free spins, a Super Round, and Super Spins. The Super Round and Super Spins work in conjunction to deliver bigger payouts through increased wins for each symbol.
9. Game of Kings
Game of Kings is like a mashup of various fairy tales and Game of Thrones. If any of this sounds interesting to you, then this 5-reel, 25-payline game from Arrow's Edge is worth checking out. We like the medieval setting and dramatic music that plays during the base game. It offers three choices of free spins, with the main difference being how many spins you get and the available payout modifiers. You can unlock a second bonus round, where you choose whether to attack a rival king's castle by sea/ship, assassin, or catapult.
10. Scotland Creatures
Developed by Urgent Games, Scotland Creatures takes you to the Highlands where various mystical creatures exist. Urgent has done a nice job with the symbols/creatures detail as well as the overall atmosphere. That said, this game is great if you highly value the setting of an online slot. Scotland Creatures also has some features that will boost your payouts like sticky wilds and free spins. We suggest checking the info screen before playing because RTP can vary from 85% to 97%. Other than the wide-ranging RTP, Scotland Creatures slot is worth a look.
