Top 10 Mobile Slots in 2018April 23rd, 2018
With new and exciting slot games being released almost every day, players have more than enough to choose from on their mobile devices.
The world of online slots never stands still and there's a fantastic range of games that caters to every taste in 2018. Here are some of our favourites:
It's impossible to compile a list of great slots and not include Starburst. This classic is still found almost everywhere, and the simple five-reel, ten payline format, along with the wide range of wagers – you can stake as little as 10p or as much as £100 – has made this an online casino standard. The rather appealing £50,000 jackpot on offer probably helps a little, too.
2. Gonzo's Quest
Another timeless slot that seems to only get better with age, Gonzo's Quest is as good to look at as it was back in 2010, and it's easy to get to grips with thanks to the fairly standard five-reel, 20 payline layout. It's the innovative 'avalanche' feature and multipliers that make this slot so enjoyable (and potentially rewarding) to play. It's the perfect combination of traditional gameplay with a few interesting twists plus with excellent presentation.
3. Bloodsuckers II
While it may not be the most modern, innovative, or even graphically impressive slot out there, the original Bloodsuckers gained a huge following. This vampire-themed sequel was released last year and does an excellent job of building on the success of the first instalment. Better graphics, a higher bet limit and a maximum jackpot of £100,000 make this one definitely worth a spin for fans of the original as well as new players.
4. Gem Rocks
An interesting twist on the traditional slot format, Gem Rocks was released earlier this year by Yggdrasil. The main feature is the game offers up to 4,096 ways to win. It uses a similar 'avalanche' feature similar to Gonzo's Quest, but the bonus symbols can also increase the number of paylines and multipliers. The superb artwork and cartoon-style rock men, along with a serene atmosphere, are the icing on the cake. There's a wide range of stake options, too.
5. Castle Builder II
Probably one of the most boundary-breaking slots out there, this is an interesting amalgamation of adventure, building and gambling. You choose a character before setting off on an exploration of the realms, collecting resources to build your castle through spins. Once you've built your medieval abode, you can reap the spoils by triggering a royal wedding. While it might not be for traditionalists, the clever game design and gorgeous presentation make this title a real trailblazer.
6. Mega Moolah
We had to include a progressive on the list, and Mega Moolah is arguably still the king of them all. Yes, it might not have the best graphics, sound or general presentation, but not only does it have a whopping 225,000-coin jackpot, there are not one but four progressives to win. The standard five-reel 25 payline slot is easy to get to grips with too, and the more you bet the higher your chances of a life-changing win.
7. Jurassic World
A good example of how to do a modern slot with a movie tie-in, Jurassic World from Microgaming delivers dino-sized quality and plenty of ways to win – 243 in fact. Everything from the backdrop to the quality of the slot symbols instantly draws you in to the film's atmosphere and setting. It's a solid example of how good modern slots can be.
8. Well of Wonders
If you're looking for a truly relaxing gaming experience, this is top of the list. The peaceful magical forest setting is on full glorious display too, thanks to the way the symbols are presented. Instead of a backdrop of reels, the icons burst out of the magical well. Every time you get three matching gems, they disappear and give way to new ones. It's also an excellent slot to get acquainted with cascading wins, as it's not too pricey to play.
9. Space Lights
This made our list thanks to the cool neon space theme and the retro ‘80s synth music as made popular again by the Netflix Originals Series "Stranger Things". A masterclass in slot design, the layout is sharp and sleek, and the sensation of slowly drifting through space as you play is almost hypnotic. The game itself doesn't break any new ground, but the sticky wilds and multipliers add some interesting twists over standard slots.
10. Goblin's Cave
It might have been released in 2012, but there's one thing this still has over all the competition: Return to player. Most slots have around 96 to 97% RTP or less, but Goblin's Cave by Playtech has a generous 99.32%, which means theoretically you should be winning much more often. The one caveat here is that you do need to bet max coins to get the best wins, but it's enjoyable to play nonetheless thanks to being able to bet on all paylines.
