This page lists the most popular slots found at Gamingslots at this present time. These games have achieved the most positive votes over the period of a month, with the highest voted games appearing at the top from left to right. Quite often the same games will appear month after month like IGT’s Cleopatra, Microgaming’s Thunderstruck slot and Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe, however new ones will appear regularly as new votes come in.
What makes a popular slot?
It has long been thought that you need to have the best graphics, with the most amount of bonuses to make a game popular. However, some of the most popular slots, both online and in land based casinos have been very simple.
Take the original Book of Ra slot for example, this game has an amazing following of players, yet the game is very straightforward, with a 10x free spins bonus. The same could be said about Aristocrat’s Queen of the Nile and Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches slot. But all of these games have somehow captured player’s imagination and kept them coming back for more and more.
Technology and slots
Despite a certain amount of nostalgia and fun associated with older slots it is fairly obvious that technology is the driving force in new slot games. Company’s like Net Ent are investing heavily in development and licensing to produce some amazing new slots such as the exhillerating Scarface and the crazy-looking Evolution, which are taking slots gaming to a new level. IGT are also following a similar trend with the new Star Trek slot game. Just like the video gaming industry, the slot games industry is going through a similar change, with more complex, graphically-rich wagering games.
Some things will never change though and slots that have been around for 10-20 years will continue to have mass appeal. This is something very unique to the slot game industry and is unlikely to change anytime soon.
