Best Online Slot Games 2019

Best new bingo sites selection - Best Online Slot Games 2019

Which are the best slot games of 2019? Here’s our list, what do you think?


  • Play Dead Or Alive 2 at Volt Casino
    Up to 300 Cash Spins on your First Deposit

    Dead Or Alive 2 is of course the sequel to Net Ent’s much loved high variance thriller Dead or Alive.  With only 9 paylines, it can be played for under 10p a spin.  Dead Or Alive 2 has a choice of three different bonus rounds – one with an increasing multiplier, one with sticky wilds and a 2x multiplier as seen in the original game and a super high variance version of the sticky wilds.

    The new game is so graphically superior to the old one and one of the bonus rounds so close to the original that it is hard to see why anyone would choose to play the earlier game now.

    Dead or Alive 2 has RTP of 96.8% and the highest variance version of the bonus round can potentially pay out more than 100,000 x stake – no prizes for guessing how unlikely that is though!

  • Play Fluffy In Space at Buzz Bingo
    Deposit & Spend £5, Get £15 Online Bingo Bonus, £10 Retail Bingo Bonus & 20 Bonus Spins, Keep What You Win

    Fluffy In Space is Eyecon’s latest sequel to the hugely popular Fluffy Favourites.  Like its predecessors it has 25 paylines but in other ways it is a bit different – and not just because the cuddly toys are wearing space helmets, boots etc.  The pink elephants are present and they still twerk, but there’s a different wild symbol.  Three or more elephants anywhere on the reels trigger the Fluffy In Space feature; 3 respins take place with the elephants sticky and whenever another elephant shows up the number of respins is reset to 3 again.  The respins themselves do not pay anything out, but at the end of the feature each elephant turns round to reveal a multiplier which is applied to the original stake.

    Fluffy In Space also has a free spins bonus round which is triggered by three or more Planet scatters; it is only 6 free spins but can be retriggered multiple times.  This game is bound to appeal to any fan of the other Fluffy games and the Fluffy In Space feature adds a new dimension to an old favourite.

    Fluffy In Space comes in a progressive jackpot version as well as in a regular version; the regular version has RTP of 96.355% and the jackpot version (which has mega, maxi and mini jackpots) has RTP of 90.16% excluding the jackpot.  In both cases the minimum spin value is 25p.

  • Play Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways at Gala Spins
    Jackpot King Slots: Deposit & Play £10+, Get £40 Bonus

    Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways is a pumped up revamp of the classic Blueprint slot from 2014.  The original had just 10 paylines but in the Megaways version, the 6 reels give up to 15,625 ways to win (depending, as always with Megaways, on the number of symbols that land on each reel which varies from spin to spin).  It’s one of the more straightforward Megaways slots out there, without the horizontal reel and exploding symbols of the quintessential Megaways game Bonanza.

    Just as in the original, the fisherman scatter is the key symbol, both for triggering the free spins bonus round and getting big wins once in there; the fish symbols come with price tags representing what you can win in the bonus round if you spin them at the same time as a fisherman.  The game does a great job of combining the look and feel of the original with the thrill of the Megaways mechanic, and in common with many other Megaways slots it has a Buy The Bonus feature whereby a player can pay 100x stake to trigger the bonus round immediately.

    Fishin’ Frenzy Megaways has RTP of 95.02%

    * 18+. New customers only. Certain countries only. Min deposit and spend £10 cash on any Jackpot King game = £40 bonus. x20 wagering reqs apply. Bonus valid for 7 days. Selected games only. T&Cs apply.

  • Play Kingdoms Rise: Reign Of Ice at The Sun Vegas
    Deposit £10+ Get 100% Slot Bonus (up to £300)

    Kingdoms Rise: Reign of Ice is the latest release in the new Kingdoms Rise series of fantasy themed progressive jackpot slots by Playtech and is very loosely themed on Norse mythology.  As in the earlier games in the series (Forbidden Forest, Guardians of the Abyss and Sands of Fury), you collect tokens as you play which can be redeemed in the Kingdoms Rise shop against bonus rounds from any of the four games.  In the case of Reign of Ice, one of these is the regular bonus round, the Hammer Respins, in a regular and enhanced version and there’s also two bonus rounds that can’t be triggered in the game normally.  There’s a regular progressive jackpot plus a daily jackpot and a value limited jackpot.

    Reign of Ice has 25 lines and can be played from 10p a spin.  The RTP including the jackpot contribution and the tokens is 96.07% – without either it is 92.08%.

  • Play Raging Rhino Megaways at Gala Spins
    Jackpot King Slots: Deposit & Play £10+, Get £40 Bonus

    Raging Rhino Megaways by SG is a Megaways revamp of a high variance classic.  The original Raging Rhino had 4096 ways to win; the Megaways version bumps this up to a staggering 117, 649 ways (when all reels have the maximum number of symbols).

    Raging Rhino Megaways plays very like Bonanza, with cascading wins and a horizontal reel at the top which is the only place that wilds appear in the base game (they appear on some of the other reels in the bonus round).  The bonus round is also classic Megaways.  An initial 8 free spins are triggered by getting 4 or more scatters – and can be retriggered by getting three or more scatters during the bonus round.  The multiplier starts at 1 and goes up with every win cascade.

    This game will appeal to fans of the original Raging Rhino game and anyone who enjoys a Megaways slot.  It has RTP of 96.18% and can be played at spin values from 20p to £20.

    * 18+. New customers only. Certain countries only. Min deposit and spend £10 cash on any Jackpot King game = £40 bonus. x20 wagering reqs apply. Bonus valid for 7 days. Selected games only. T&Cs apply.

  • Play TED Jackpot King at Foxy Bingo
    Deposit & Spend £10, Get £40 Bingo Bonus

    TED Jackpot King by Blueprint Gaming brings everyone’s favourite naughty teddy bear into the very popular Jackpot King progressive jackpot system.  Jackpot King is an operator specific jackpot and can be much larger at some sites than others, in some places a mere 6 figures and in others exceeding £2 million.  The Jackpot King bonus game can be triggered on any spin and apart from that the game is the same old TED we know and love, with its 6 bonus features and 5 bonus rounds.

    TED Jackpot King has RTP of 93.02% excluding the jackpot contribution and can be played from 10p a spin.

    * 18+. New players only. Min £10 deposit & wager. £40 Bonus valid on Bingo only. 4x wag req. 14 days to meet wagering req. Offer expires in 14 days. T&Cs apply. Please play responsibly

  • Play 88 Fortunes Megaways at CasinoCasino
    Deposit £10 - £100, Get 100% Slot Bonus

    88 Fortunes Megaways by Scientific Games is a Megaways reboot of the original slot game from 2016, itself based on a physical slot machine.  It has up to 117,649 ways to win depending on how many symbols land on each of the 6 reels, and the extra horizontal reel adjacent to reels 2-5 and exploding wins feature that are common to a great many Megaways slots.

    The special feature of 88 Fortunes Megaways is the option to play with anything from 1 to 5 gold symbols; turning a symbol gold makes wins worth 20x more or thereabouts, but changes the base stake; the cheapest spin is 8p with one gold symbol and 88p with all 5.  RTP varies from 96.06% to 96.36%.

    88 Fortunes Megaways also has a free spins bonus round which can be triggered either by scatters or via a pick-me feature (randomly awarded by the Fu Bat wild symbol) which also awards a starting multiplier.

     

     

    * New players only, min deposit £10, wagering 40x bonus, max bet £5 with bonus funds, live casino play excluded with bonus, 100% up to £100 on 1st deposit, welcome bonus excluded for players depositing with Skrill or Neteller, no max cashout on deposit offers, alwasy 10% cashback applies to deposits where no bonus is included, eligibility is restricted for suspected abuse

  • Play Reel Rush 2 at Lucky VIP Casino
    Deposit £10 - £100, Get 150% Slot Bonus

    Reel Rush 2 by Net Ent is the sequel to the original Reel Rush game from 2013.  Like the original, it has classic platformer video game styling and a distinctive 45 way diamond shaped reels arrangement, with extra positions that are unlocked on respins after every won, increasing the numbers of ways to win up to a maximum of 1875 ways on the fifth respin.  Starting with only one symbol in play on reel 1 (which can’t be a wild), it can be hard to get the string of wins going but there are some random bonus features that help by awarding a re-spin on a loss, turning symbols wild or unlocking extra parts of the play area.  Reel Rush 2 also has a 3125 way Free Spins bonus round (triggered by unlocking the whole of the play area) which turns into Super Free Spins (with a progressive multiplier going up on every win) if the player has collected enough tokens through play, gambles or pays to top them up to the required 2000.

    Basically, this is a buy the bonus round slot – but instead of being able to buy it straight off (which is no longer allowed in the UK), you have to wait for the basic bonus round to be triggered before you can buy the upgrade.

    Reel Rush 2 can be played from 20p a spin and has RTP of 95.53%  – 96.58%; the variable RTP is because there is a slightly higher RTP attached to buying Super Tokens to upgrade the bonus round than to playing it as is or gambling.

    * New Customer Offer. T&Cs Apply. 18+. Please Gamble Responsibly.

  • Play Sweet Bonanza at Space Wins
    Deposit £10+ To Catch Your Lucky Star - Top Prize 500 Slot Spins

    Sweet Bonanza by Pragmatic Play is a medium to high volatility slot played on a 6 x 5 grid; the symbols are all sweets and gummy fruits.  The aim is to collect 8 or more of the same symbol and these can be anywhere on screen, not necessarily adjacent to each other. Winning combos explode and more symbols tumble down and this continues until there are no more wins.

    Sweet Bonanza has two bet levels.  At the 20 coin level there is the option to buy the bonus round for 100x total bet (e.g. £200 at a £2 spin value).  At the 25 coin level the chance of triggering the bonus round naturally (with 4 or more scatters) is doubled but there is no option to buy it.

    The bonus round starts at 10 free spins and 5 more are added whenever 3 or more scatters land on the reels while the bonus round is playing.  The free spins take place on a special set of reels with multiplier symbols included.  The RTP ranges from 95.45% to 94.5% and it can be played at spin values from 20p.

    * New players only, min deposit £10, £8 max win per 10 spins, max bonus conversion £250, 65x wagering requirements and full T&Cs apply

  • Play Tome of Madness at Cosmic Spins
    Deposit £10+, Get 100% Slot Bonus (up to £50) & 50 Bonus Spins

    Tome of Madness – or Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness to give the game its full name – is a new slot by Play’N’Go, played on a 5×5 grid.  The full name is significant, as Rich Wilde’s previous appearance was in the wildly popular slot game Book Of Dead, but Tome of Madness is more in the vein of other Play’N’Go grid based games such as Viking Runecraft and Rise of Olympus.

    Wins are on clusters of 4 or more matching symbols; winning symbols explode and more symbols drop down to fill the gaps.  Win over an Eye Mark and/or charge the portal with cascading wins to add 2 special wilds to the grid which in turn can trigger portal effects.  Win on 42 symbols to open the portal and enter the Other World bonus round with added portal effects; win over all the Eye Marks in the bonus round to summon the Cthulhu Mega Wild and the chance to win big.

    Tome of Madness is high variance with RTP of 96.59% and can be played from 10p a spin.

Best Slot Games 2019

Megaways slots were undoubtedly the defining trend in online slot games throughout 2019.  Although the format dates back to the release of Bonanza at the end of 2016, the trend didn’t really get going until Big Time Gaming licensed the technology out for use by other providers. The first non BTG Megaways slot was Blueprint’s Diamond Mine back in May 2018 and by the beginning of 2019 they were coming thick and fast.  During 2019 many Megaways versions of classic games were released, among them Raging Rhino, Rainbow Riches and Fishin’ Frenzy.

It wasn’t just the Megaways reels format that made these slots so appealing, of course – most of them also included a facility to buy and/or gamble the bonus round.  We say “included” because in October 2019 the Gambling Commission put a stop to outright buying of the bonus round on the grounds that it facilitated problem gambling.  To the disappointment of many players but no doubt to the relief of some, the games in question either had the Bonus Buy facility removed or disappeared entirely from UK facing casinos.  While it is still possible to buy the bonus round in some games, it has to be done with tokens that are collected through play (in the Kingdoms Rise slots for instance) and most would agree this is a long way removed from the original concept.

Although the sort of thoroughly irresponsible repeated buying and gambling of the bonus round that was possible in the original version of Extra Chilli is no longer possible, slot game providers have a host of other ways to enable players to pay to make the game more exciting.  For example:

  • In Reel Rush 2, once the bonus round has been triggered in the usual way you can buy Super Tokens to upgrade it
  • In Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, gambling the bonus round is an integral part of the gameplay
  • In Sweet Bonanza and its Christmas themed sequel you can increase your bet from 20 to 25 coins to double the chance of triggering the bonus round
  • In 88 Fortunes Megaways you can choose from 5 bet levels to turn anything up to 5 symbols into much higher scoring golden versions
  • In Break Da Bank Again Respin you can pay to respin individual reels to try and create or improve a win, or bring on the bonus round

The other big story in online slot games during 2019 was progressive jackpots.  Although these are not new (in fact they predate online slots) the range of progressives on offer greatly expanded in 2019 thanks to Blueprint’s Jackpot King games (now including that evergreen favourite, TED) and Red Tiger’s Daily Jackpots.  The Red Tiger games are especially popular with players because of the must-drop jackpots, typically one which has to drop before it reaches £2000 and one which has to drop before midnight, although at some sites such as Heart Bingo there are two daily jackpots, an early drop and a late drop.

Both Jackpot King and Red Tiger are local area jackpots, confined to one operator or platform, so the value of the jackpot can vary rather dramatically between sites (the more players you are competing with, the bigger it will be).

What do you think the classic slot games of 2019 are, that will turn out to stand the test of time?  Have we left anything important off our list?
