Slot games have been a staple of the casino world for decades, but with the rise of online gaming, the options have never been more plentiful. With so many slot games available, it can be tough to know where to start. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 10 best slot games of the year. Whether you’re an experienced player or a beginner, there’s enough variation in these titles to potentially stand out to you.

Gonzo’s Quest Slot

Gonzo’s Quest is a popular online video slot game developed by NetEnt, one of the leading software providers in the online gambling industry. The game is based on the story of a Spanish conquistador named Gonzo, who embarks on a quest to find the lost city of Eldorado, the mythical city of gold.

One of the most unique features of Gonzo’s Quest is the Avalanche feature, which is simply a cascading mechanic. Should a combination be formed, the symbols explode, and new symbols could fall into their place from above.. Overall, Gonzo’s Quest is a visually stunning game that pairs innovative gameplay features with high-quality graphics

Starburst Slot

A classical and timeless favourite, the Starburst slot was developed by NetEnt, a leading software provider in the online gaming industry. The game is set against a backdrop of outer space and features five reels, three rows, and 10 paylines. One of the standout features of Starburst is the wild symbol, which could potentially substitute for all other symbols should it land on the reels. Like with Gonzos Quest, this slot combines expert game design with some vibrant graphics to help create an overall polished end product.

Rainbow Riches Slot

One we know to be a definite fan favourite is the Rainbow Riches slot developed by Barcrest. The game is set in a magical forest and features five reels, three rows, and 20 paylines. The Irish genre is evident by just taking a look at this game’s backdrop and this is only reaffirmed when looking at the symbols in this title. These are all Irish-themed, presenting symbols such as a leprechaun, a pot of gold, a wishing well, and a rainbow. The graphics and sound effects of the game are standout in this release, and is one of the main reasons this game has stood the test of time since its initial release.


Book Of Dead Slot

Another timeless classic on our list is the Book of Dead slot. The innovative features and high-quality graphics make it a standout within the Egyptian genre of slots and the graphics are one of this title’s most defining aspects. The handful of bonuses which could potentially be triggered help to add another layer to the already polished base gameplay and the rather unique symbols only help affirm the innovative approach taken when designing this title.

Dead Or Alive II Slot

With a handful of bonuses such as the ‘Sticky Wild’ feature and the Free Spins bonus, there are many things that have kept people coming back to this specific title, making it such a popular classic. Dead or Alive II features an array of high-quality graphics making it a unique instalment in the online casino world thanks to its distinctive Wild Western theme.

Bonanza Megaways Slot

Bonanza is a popular online video slot game developed by Big Time Gaming. This title is set in a mine and features six reels and up to 117,649 paylines, thanks to the innovative Megaways feature. The exclusive Megaways feature and high-quality graphics help it stand out from within its respective genre, with more and more titles adopting the mining thematics than ever before. The handful of bonuses and simplistic yet polished graphics, which continue to hold up today, only assert this release as one of the greats currently out there.

Mustang Gold Slot

Mustang Gold is a certain fan favourite when it comes to online slot machine games, thanks to its visuals which combine both the popular animal and wild western themes to create some truly unique graphical displays. The symbols feature various horses and cowboys, as well as the typical playing card symbols, each of which are designed in western style font. In addition to all of this, this title features a number of jackpot bonus games which could potentially be triggered, as well as incorporating both a wild and scatter symbol, both of which have their own unique bonus capabilities too!

Mega Moolah Slot

Arguably one of the most popular and well known games in the online casino industry, Mega Moolah has been a fan favourite for some years now. The progressive jackpot is the main aspect of the game as this has been responsible for breaking some records in the past. The game is actually situated within an African Savannah, slotting in perfectly to the ever growing animal genre of slots out there. The symbols only help affirm its unique visuals, and although the gameplay is relatively simplistic, polished to a level in which it could be played by all different levels of online slot players.

Jammin Jars Slot

Jammin’ Jars is a popular online video slot game developed by Push Gaming,with this game featuring an unusual 8×8 grid layout with no paylines. Instead, this title opts for a Cluster Pays mechanic which could form combinations regardless of a symbols position on the reels. With a number of bonuses, and a retro fruit machine inspired set of visuals, it’s not a bit of wonder players have cemented this title as a fan favourite.

Wolf Gold Slot

Wolf Gold is a beautifully designed online slot game that also adopts the animal theme which continues to be popular within the casino world. An excellent addition to Pragmatic Play’s portfolio, this title comes paired with high-quality graphics and stunning interactive features that showcase this developer’s expertise when crafting slots. The game also features a Jackpot Bonus feature, which could be triggered at any random time, however, the chances of doing so are extremely rare. Should you manage to trigger this bonus though, players could be taken to a new screen where they must pick from a selection of coins to reveal jackpot symbols. If players match three jackpot symbols, they could claim the corresponding jackpot.


There you have it, the top 10 best slot games of the year. Whether you prefer classic fruit machines, modern video slots, or something in between, this list has something for everyone. If you check out any of the titles we have mentioned for yourself though, we must reiterate the importance of responsible gambling. As slots involve real money, the risk associated is real too, therefore it is vital you only play with money you are willing to lose and can afford to do so.
