List of the best online slot machines

As I have told in most previous articles, there are now thousands of different slot machines on the market. But what exactly are the best online slot machines? In this article, I thought I would list some of my personal favorite slots.

What are the characteristics of the best slot machines?

Which slot or slots are classified as the best is highly personal. However, to find just your personal favorites, I recommend you look for the following:

  1. Slots that have an appealing theme

The theme is always a and o when playing slots. Of course, you want a satisfying experience and then the theme of the machine is a major contributing factor to whether the experience is good or bad.

Fortunately, today there are slot machines with a variety of themes. If you like Rock n Roll, for example, you can check it out MotörheadSabatonTwisted Sister or Guns N’ Roses. Are you on the other hand more sold on movies and TV series maybe VikingsHugoHugo2 or Gremlins feels more enticing. Of course, you will also find more exciting themes. There is simply something that appeals to everyone, regardless of taste!

  1. Slot machines with high RTP

Something that is also important when you play is of course to try to win as much as possible. Since all slots are based on chance, however, it is impossible to predict when and how much you will win. To increase your chances of winning, however, you can choose to play on the machines with the highest theoretical payback, also known as RTP.

If you want to learn more about this, I recommend you read my previous article “Which slots do you win the most on?”.

  1. Slots with exciting features

Just as it is important to look for slot machines that offer an appealing theme and high theoretical payback, it is also important to look for slots that offer exciting features that take the gaming experience to the next level.

Personally, I like slots that offer interactive mini-games as well as various bonus and free spins modes. To really add a little extra spice to everyday life, I recommend you try a vending machine powered by the unique Megaways mechanics. Check out, for example Rainbow RichesExtra Chilli and Dragon’s Luck.

If you have not heard of this unique mechanic, or want to deepen your knowledge of it, you can take a look at my previous article “What are Megaways slots?”.

The 9 best online slot machines (in my opinion)

To further inspire you, I thought I would list below the, in my opinion, best online slot machines:

  1. Dead or Alive 2 

If you’ve been following my blog before, you’re probably aware that the outlaws are back. Of course, I’m talking about the game developer NetEnt’s popular slot machine Dead or Alive, which recently got a sequel.

In Dead or Alive 2, you can expect even more excitement, which is perfect for people like me who like action-packed games with high volatility. As an example, the spectacular sequel offers nine paylines, a high theoretical payback of almost 97%, as well as three different options in free spins mode:

  • The default mode with a x2 multiplier
  • A mode with increasing multiplier for each wild without stick function
  • A mode where sticky wilds are instantly converted into multiplier wilds

Play Dead or Alive 2 and experience the excitement.

  1. Who Wants to be a Millionaire 

We have probably all been stuck in front of the TV program “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” – or “Who wants to be a millionaire” as it is called in Swedish – during lazy evenings on the couch. If you instead want to take a seat in the hot seat and comb home the big house, you can take a look at the exciting slot machine with the same name as the hit series.

Like the previously mentioned Primal and Extra Chilli, this slot machine is powered by the Megaways mechanics, which means that it has a total of 117,649 possible chances of winning. You also have the chance to play up to 50 free spins and take advantage of a variety of other features. It does not get much more exciting than this!

  1. Wild Swarm

From the game developer Push Gaming! comes this visually appealing and at the same time entertaining slot machine – Wild Swarm. Do not let the charming bi-theme fool you, here you can enjoy 20 paylines, a high theoretical payback of 97.03%, as well as exciting game modes that, among other things, give you up to 15 times the bet, free spins and boost on the hive.

Play Wild Swarm.

  1. Reactoonz 

The playful Reactoonz slot machine has long been one of my absolute favorite slots. Not only does it have an appealing theme, it also has many unique features. Much thanks to the fact that it is powered by a Cascading game engine that gives you the opportunity to win more on each spin.

By collecting different symbols, which in this case are aliens, you also have the chance to trigger one of the five different bonus games called Implosion, Alteration, Demolition, Incision and Gargatoon, which is also the best bonus game.

Play Reactoonz.

  1. Grim Muerto 

From Play’n GO comes the Grim Muerto slot machine that lets you party with the dead. It will be a fast-paced and wonderful experience that offers both captivating music, graphics and game modes. In Grim Muerto you will find five reels, three lines and 20 paylines.

  1. Medusa 

Ancient Greece has inspired a variety of slot machines. One of the more well-known and popular, however, is NextGen Gaming’s slots Medusa. Thanks to its consistent Greek theme, well-made symbols and animations, as well as generous bonuses, the gaming experience becomes something out of the ordinary.

Play Medusa.

  1. Viking Runecraft 

Maybe it’s the TV series Vikings that has made Viking themes so popular on slot machines? Either way, one thing is for sure – the innovative Viking Runecraft slot machine from Play’n GO appeals to me completely!

This innovative slots has no reels or paylines. Instead, it has descending symbols resting on a 7 × 7 grid. To win, the same similar symbols apply in a cluster. Once you do this, the symbols explode and are replaced with new ones, which are repeated until nothing more can be won. This means that you can win several times in the same game round.

Play Viking Runecraft.

  1. Starburst 

If, on the other hand, you want a real classic gaming experience, I recommend you instead take a look at the Starburst slot machine, which can call itself one of the world’s most played video slots.

With its iconic wild symbol, its elegant diamond symbols and the opportunity to win from multiple angles, Starburst in all its simplicity is equally entertaining for both the veteran and the beginner.

  1. Temple of Nudges 

When the popular game developer NetEnt recently launched the Temple of Nudges slot machine, it was with a bang. In addition to an appealing Aztec theme, the game has a unique Nudge feature that is activated every time you manage to get a winning combination. Once this happens, the game board is shaken and your winnings are added up, after which the symbols are moved down to make room for the next one.

Play Temple of Nudges.
