Weâ€™re well into 2016 and it sure has been a fun year for new slots. In fact, the online slots weâ€™re seeing just keep on getting better and better! Every month, we see brand new slots with fantastic features, some branded with well-known themes and storylines, and some having never seen before structures that you thought at one point impossible. There have also been some new releases from up and coming casino games providers including Thunderkick Games, Yggdrasil and Play N Go.
The main contender is still of course Netent, being a world away and the reigning champion for the last half decade of producing simply in our opinion, the best slots online.
www.allgamblingsites.com is an online gambling guide which reviews online casinos, sports betting sites, online slots and everything else in-between in the online gambling world. Below, weâ€™ve put together a fantastic top 5 list of the best online slots weâ€™ve played and reviewed so far in 2016 for different reasons. If you havenâ€™t tried them yet, take our word for it and look them up as theyâ€™re absolutely brilliant to play!
2016 is the year of fantastic slots â€“ Our Top 5 So Far
#1: Motor Head Slot (Netetnt): You probably wouldnâ€™t have missed Motorhead Slot, as itâ€™s one of three online slots launched in 2016 from Netent which have a rock music theme. First came Guns â€˜N Roses Slot in January which was said to be one of the most successful slot launches to date, followed by Jimi Hendrix Slot in April (which was slightly less well received) and then in September came the final of the self-titled â€œNetent Rocksâ€ Tour; Motorhead Slot. We believe this is by far the best one.
Perfectly branded and designed in the style of the rock band itself, Motorhead Slot offers music fans the chance to play legendary music by band, and offers fun and thrilling in game features, including a crowd pleaser bonus game and a free spins game. Motorhead Slot is premium quality casino game and one which we highly recommend.
#2: Rich Wilds & The Book of Dead Slot (PlayN Go): This game is similar to Novomaticâ€™s â€œBook of Ra Deluxe Slotâ€ and tells the tale of the explorer Rich Wilde, the Indiana Jones type of adventurer heading to ancient Egypt and chasing fortunes.
The Game offers 10 pay lines and special scatters in the free spins game as well as expanding scatters too. Yes; itâ€™s all about the scatters and free spins in this slot. If you like high variance and Ancient Egyptian themed slots, then Book of Dead Slot is well worth a spin, but make sure you aim high for those big wins!
#3: Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood Slot (Netent): Fairy-tale legends Red Riding hood Slot was launched in October 2016 straight after the last of â€œNetent Rocksâ€ Tour (which we mentioned above) so it was great to see a new genre of slot launch and well as a well-known tale portrayed by Netent.
Fairy Tale Legends Slot is designed extremely well, offering top class graphics and a fantastic soundtrack worthy of a Disney Film. The interesting thing about this game is that there are plenty of in game features which youâ€™ll encounter along the way, which coincide with the story itself â€“ of Red Riding Hood going into the woods and encountering the big bad wolf. Expect to see a free spins game, pick and click treasure chest bonuses and plenty more in this feature packed slot from Netent.
4#: Spinions Beach Party Slot (Quickspin): We love a casino game which offers a fun theme and as soon as you launch Quickspinsâ€™ Spinions Beach Party itâ€™s hard not to like it. Youâ€™ll be greeted with what we can only describe as little â€œMinionsâ€ on a beach, playing volleyball and having fun. The slot is definitely a feel good game, fun to play and it offers some entertaining in game features including a free spins game to keep those wins coming in.
#5: The Rift Slot (Thunderkick): Thunderkick Games are well known in producing some of the quirkiest online slots out there. Just take a look at Esqueleto Explosivo Slot or Babuskas Slot and youâ€™ll see what we mean. Thunderkick might not release as many slots in a year than some other leading casino games providers do, but what they do launch makes up for it in quirkiness and uniqueness.
When Thunderkick launched The Rift Slot early on in 2016, it was after a long break. It had been a year or so since weâ€™d seen a new Thunderkick Slot. This was partly due to planning new games and also adapting all of their slots to be fully mobile functional. So with The Rift Slot came some high expectation, but it was worth the wait. The Rift Slot is a dark themed game which tells the tale of a large purple hazy- mist called The Rift, which has opened up in the ground of a downtown city and is sucking the treasures and artefacts which will be forever lost in The Rift. Itâ€™s your job to close The Rift and therefore win fortunes of your own by saving the city!
