Book of Dead from Play’N Go
Along with titles such as NetEnt’s Starburst, the Book of Dead already ranks among the small number of cult classics when it comes to those online slots we just can’t get seem to get enough of. It may be modelled after the Indiana Jones-inspired Book of Ra from Novomatic but don’t let that fool you: the bonus rounds and features that come with Book of Dead are far superior.
There’s high volatility, a high hit frequency, and the same can be said for its RTP at an attractive 96.21%. With a reputation for some big-time cashing out, Book of Dead features a round of free spins that you can retrigger, along with some fantastic paying symbols on the reels. Join the fun with Rich Wilde and get winning.
Viking Runecraft from Play’N Go
A favourite among slot fans, Viking Runecraft is one of the more dynamic slots online and as addictively fun as any Xbox game.
The slot has a maximum win of 500,000 coins and 96.7% RTP. Combine those numbers with the game’s high volatility and you can see that it isn’t just the gameplay that keeps slot fans coming back for more. Just like Book of Dead, Viking Runecraft has a reputation for cashing out: another reason why it’s been immensely popular since its launch in 2017.
The game is loved by so many largely because it features four levels, in addition to a bonus round. Each level offers higher levels of rewards, and the bonus game features some pretty enormous multiplier wins, too.
Bonanza from Big Time Gaming
Megaways (a BTG trademark) developed this popular slot, with its 117,649 ways to win. There are so many ways to win, in fact, that it’s hard not to win with Bonanza. The other great thing about this game is that it features Unlimited Win Multipliers that can really up the ante.
Bonanza has high volatility, a max win of 10,000x your stake and a 96% RTP. You'll want to buckle up for this one.
Hall of Gods from NetEnt
There’s one great reason why we included Hall of Gods on this list of the best slots to play in 2019: it ranks among the all-time biggest progressive jackpots.
NetEnt went that extra mile with this one by offering three different progressive jackpots. While it offers low volatility and a 95.5% RTP, we think it’s multi-million pound wins makes up for it. It also provides a Free Spins feature and an Expanding Wild feature.
Hall of Gods is more than deserved of its place on this list for the sheer amount of players that have become millionaires simply by playing it.
Twin Spin from NetEnt
Another cult classic, the popular Twin Spin has a maximum win of £135,000 and a 96.6% RTP. The volatility dances between medium and high as it’s dependent upon the numbers of reels that are spinning.
The game achieved immediate fame among slot fans due to its 243 ways to win and its incredibly unique feature: two linked adjacent reels that spin as one. While spinning, they’re capable of expanding to either triplets, quadruplets, or even quintuplets.
With five reels spinning the same symbols, you have the potential to cash out big.
