To say online slots have become popular over the last few years is something of an understatement, and with that popularity comes a games development industry eager to create a new hit slot that will truly appear to gamers.

Its great that currently there are so many variations and genres of slots out there, but sometimes it can become difficult to select one for your entertainment purposes when theres simply so many to choose from. Guts casino is an iGaming site licensed in UK whose slots section is a perfect example of this wide range of slots games. The provider offers titles on every conceivable theme, from Jimi Hendrix to Dracula, while some punters may find even making a selection from the Top 16 section difficult. Although many of you will select a slot based on the theme such as your favourite movie or band, an equal number are mainly looking for quality game mechanics, mini-games, graphics and great sound. Whether you belong to the former or the latter category, it's important to know what's on offer and what's more popular. For that reason, today we're presenting the top three slots to play right now, in terms of popularity, mechanics and most importantly, potential for winnings.

Holmes and the Stolen Stones
This title is so popular right now, we're surprised it's not on offer on more iGaming websites - Guts.com is one of the places to find it, though. Powered by Yggdrasil Gaming and obviously featuring the most famous of detectives, this game asks you to solve the mystery of the missing diamonds. It offers plenty of opportunities to reward yourself for your detective skills with five progressive jackpots. The graphics are as beautiful and crisp as you’d expect from Yggdrasil and the sounds and mysterious music help immerse you in a crime caper in Victorian London. Clearly, a Sherlock Holmes theme is going to be popular, even though it's old school Holmes, not the new Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock (who was recently named BBC's best character). However, the developers haven’t just relied on the name to sell the game as everything is polished to give players a great gaming experience.

When Pigs Fly
Great name, great reviews, great jackpots and a great game, this one ticks all the boxes and should prove popular for a while. It's created by one of the biggest slots game developers in the business, NetEnt, who have had huge success in the past with a diverse range of titles including South Park, Aliens, The Invisible Man, Gonzo’s Quest and the colossal hit Starburst. They’re once again in great form with this one as the cartoony theme may remind you of some classic cartoons from your past and with plenty of free re-spins launching the board, one spin can last a long time. This game is great fun to play, while the mechanics allow for moments when the reels inflate from 45 to 3125 ways to win. That, combined with all the respins there's a lot to keep you occupied and coming back for more.

Frozen Diamonds
Definitely one for the Candy Crush generation, this is a five reel and twenty payline adaptation of the classic gemstone style slots we’ve seen proven hugely popular in the past. Rabcat - who are also responsible for the innovative Castle Builder slot and Forsaken Kingdom - have another ice-cool hit on their hands with Frozen Diamonds. With a cascading reels feature, free spins, multipliers and extra wild symbols there’s plenty going on. On the aesthetics side, there are pleasing graphics and a slick space-age soundtrack. This might not be for everyone, but those that enjoy the retro style gaming based on an enduringly popular theme will not be disappointed.

It’s great to have choice and scrolling through all the different games available is part of the fun. These three selections, however, are our absolute top picks at the moment, as in addition to their popularity, they have the features and mechanics to be enjoyable for all.
