The Best Slots for 2018

Sat, 28 Jul 2018 00:54

Now we’re past the mid-way point of the year, we can confidently say that slot developers such as Yggdrasil, Playtech, Microgaming, and NetEnt have remained true to their word and offered some of the best online slots of 2018.

During the London Affiliate Conference (LAC), some of the above names promised that they would release mind-blowing slots and they certainly delivered.

From these developers and more, let’s look at some of the best slots so far in 2018.

Jumanji

Not content with being among the year’s best online slots, Jumanji is also a unique game that includes elements of traditional board games. The NetEnt-developed game boasts numerous additional features that don’t appear in any other online slot. If you love the movie, you won’t want to miss playing the slot game. It’s a game that has disrupted the industry and has already been tipped to become a classic like Starburst.

Bai Shi

The Chinese slot from Playtech features 40 paylines and five reels. The two Chinese symbols that are the mark of this game represent hands held down as bai (a sight of respect) and shi (a master). Stunning graphics and a relaxing soundtrack make this slot a unique one that represents an enjoyable gaming experience.

Cool Wolf

Cool Wolf is simply one of the most loved slots in 2018. With a wolf for company, you go on an adventure featuring attractive cheerleaders, Hollywood cinemas, and classic cars. The feature-packed five-reel slot from Microgaming offers 243 ways to win. This slot, like each on the list, is tons of fun. There are countless fun and real money slots available online at the likes of CoolCat Casino. This particular casino features 140 slots with jackpots, bonus rounds and more. You can never have enough cool.

Book of Dead

If you enjoyed Book of Ra, you’ll love Book of Dead. The Play’n’ GO video slot transports you back to Ancient Egypt. If you’re brave enough to spin the ten-payline five-reel video slot, you’ll come up against Anubis and Osiris and be expected to uncover the magic afterlife spells. The book symbol works as both a scatter and a wild. When a Scatter, you need three on the reels for it to trigger 10 free spins. When a wild, it’s used to replace missing symbols from what would otherwise be a lucky combination. Play’n’ GO is one of the leading developers of mobile games. So you can rest assured that both the animation and graphics are top notch on either a tablet or smartphone. If you haven’t tried 2016’s Book of Dead yet, either, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Archangels: Salvation

NetEnt has done it again. Archangels: Salvation, Hotline, and Asgardian Stones are all worthy contenders for the best new slot in 2018. We have a slight preference for this one, however. The 12-row, six-reel slot boasts wild substitutions, free spins, and two wild features. It even includes 100 bet lines: a first even for NetEnt. And free spins can be activated by more than two scatter symbols. The slot, which was launched in April, quickly became a hit with online casino operators.

Leprechaun Hills

St. Patrick’s Day may only come around once a year but this video slot is available to play whenever you’re feeling lucky. Or maybe you’re just in the mood for something Irish. The 40-payline, five-reel slot from Quickspin is just the ticket. There’s Irish stout, Irish music, pots with gold, four-leaf clovers, and green reels. The game is perfect for leprechaun fans and is playable on any mobile device. If that isn’t enough for you, you can trigger lucky respins or rainbow free spins and feel luckier than a leprechaun. You can certainly own more gold than them, at least.

Vikings Go to Hell

The game’s developer, Yggdrasil, was named Innovator Supplier of the Year by the International Gaming Awards for two consecutive years. So it would seem odd not to feature at least one of its slots here. Launched in May, Vikings Go To Hell is already quite the hit. It’s hardly surprising, either, when you consider that there isn’t anything not to like about this 25-payline, five-reel slot. The symbols represent Weapons and Vikings and your role in the game is to collect Rage points. Once you’ve collected enough of them, you’re rewarded with free spins. There are also three categories of free spin modes. And it’s set in hell. It doesn’t get any scarier than that.

Last year may have been a great one for slots, but 2018 has seen even more impressive games launched at online casinos. The sheer amount of titles now available that provide new ways of playing and winning money is incredible.

Traditional slots have been around for years and players have grown tired of cherry machines. In response, the world’s finest slot developers have launched these exciting new games.
