Many people get in to playing online and mobile slots in order to chill out and relax, while other want something to do when they have a free minute on their hands. A whole other sub-set of players, however, want to play slots to win real cash. With this in mind, we’ve collated a collection of the top 10 slots which will boost your bankroll, while entertaining you along the way!
If you get awarded extra spins as a bonus at pretty much any online or mobile casino, there’s a better than average chance that they’ll be on NetEnt’s Starburst game. While much of the appeal of this game lies in its design – all bight coloured gems and stars laid against the backdrop of interstellar space – much of its beauty lies in its simplicity. The gameplay in the 5 reel, 20 payline slot is pretty straightforward and feature light. However, there are of course those extra spins, which are easily triggered within the game, and can really boost your winning potential.
2. Gonzo’s Quest
Gonzo’s Quest may be one of the earliest slots that NetEnt made, but it still proves to be one of its most popular to this day. Set in the South American jungles, the game follows conquistador Gonzo, on his secret quest to uncover the lost city of El Dorado. This was one of the first games to introduce the Avalanche feature, in which winning symbols disappear, only to be replaced from above, greatly increasing the possibility of further wins. Look out for the virtual reality version of this game coming soon.
3. Foxin’ Wins
You know the tale of the aristocratic fox who chases leprechauns around his estate and fleeces them for their pots of gold? Oh, you haven’t heard that one? Then you need to give NextGen Gaming’s Foxin’ Wins a spins and find out what we’re on about. This 5 reel, 25 payline game has a suer profitable and compelling base game, hosted by a friendly (if not ever so snooty) fox. However, if you’re after real money, you just wait until you enter one of the two bonus games – Leprechaun Shake Down and Foxy Funds – to make your fortune.
4. When Pigs Fly
In the classic saying ‘when pigs fly’ the assumption is they’ll never sprout wins and take to the sky, but NetEnt has other ideas for our porcine friends in this slot, which sees sentient pigs donning space suits and climbing aboard a rocket. The theme might be fun and frivolous, but the winning potential of this game is deadly serious. The Expanding Reels feature makes it more and more likely you’ll hit winning combinations as you win, and once all the reels on the screen are active, you’ll enter the Extra Spins round to make some serious money.
Many people use online and mobile casino games to try and chill out, but there’s no better candidate for relaxing your mind while you play than NetEnt’s trippy and chilling NRVANA. The name is of course a reference to Nirvana; the Buddhist name for ultimate state of soteriological release and liberation from rebirths. Everything to do with this game, from the trippy visuals to the laidback soundtrack, is designed to make it a relaxing slot to play, but there’s still a lot of winning potential in the mix, meaning that you might till get that rush of adrenaline.
6. Thunderstruck II
It’s always a good sign when something enjoys so much recognition and success that it spawns a sequel, and so it is with Microgaming’s Thunderstuck, that the original Nordic god themed game was so loved they had to make a second one to keep up with demand. The high paying symbols in this game feature the pantheon of Nordic gods, including Odin, Valkyrie, Loki, and of course Thor. The most electrifying feature of the game is Thor’s Lightning Extra Spins, where the players bankroll feels the power of the lightning god himself.
7. Stunning Hot
BeeFee might not be a developer you hear from very often, but when they do come along, they really knock the ball out of the park with compelling games which hark back to the golden age of slots. Their most popular slots series – Stunning – has a standout star in the form of Stunning Hot. Stunning Hot features all the classic fruit machine fruits as symbols – think Grapes, Oranges, and of course Cherries – but while its aesthetic is classic, its features are anything but. An extra spins round and a gamble feature make big wins not just possible, but highly likely.
8. Castle Builder
In the last couple of years there’s been a lot of discussion about the intersection of skill-based, social and real-money gaming online, and Microgaming’s Castle Builder is one of the earliest and best examples of a developer trying to make that relationship work. While you spin away on the slot, you’re also able to build a castle in the style of popular online castle defence games, with totally unique ways to win. For those who are really taken by this game, you’ll be happy to hear that there’s already a sequel available to play which boasts even more amazing features.
9. Voodoo Candy Shop
The second slot from the enigmatic BeeFee to make it onto our list, Voodoo Candy Shop pretty much delivers exactly what it offers on the tin. Combining the kind of witch doctor-y voodoo trinkets you’d find in a voodoo shop with the sweet and lollipops from a candy store, there’s literally no other game with a theme or aesthetic quite like this one. Don’t just think this slot is trying to power through on the back of absurdity alone – the game allows you to guess a card after every win in order to double or quadruple your takings.
10. Big Bad Wolf
There’s no child (or adult) in the western world who can’t recite to you – verbatim – the story of the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. And so it is IGT has capitalised on the popularity of the fairytale in order to make a fun and engaging (and most importantly, high paying) mobile slot. Aside from the killer graphics and entertaining theme, you’ll fall in love with this slot’s features, which range from Additional Wilds to Re-triggered Extra Spins!
