There is no disputing that Eyecon are among the world leaders when it comes to designing online slot games.
The Australian based company have been around since 1997, and they’ve seen the world of gambling change a lot during those two decades. In particular, they saw the way the wind was blowing as online casinos began to emerge, and made sure they were one of the first major companies to embrace this major change in gambling habits and position themselves at the front of the market.
Eyecon’s work isn’t purely restricted to the online slot world. They also continue to develop physical, land-based slot machines and gaming systems, and act as a systems provider to the world of gambling in general. While we could talk about their extensive experience and range of products in great detail, today we’re here to talk about their best online slot games. With such a huge range to choose from it’s not an easy task, but we’ve played them all, and this is how we rank them!
5. 99 Time
The trick to designing a popular online slot game is to find a theme that will appeal to a broad and varied demographic. There can be little doubt that almost everybody loves ice cream. Therefore ‘99 Time’ is off to a winner before you’ve even got started; in fact, the theme of the game might even work against it at times because you’ll find yourself getting hungry while you play!
The visuals of this game will take you right back to your childhood, and to summer days spent lounging around on beaches, pestering your parents to visit the ice cream truck and bring you a treat. The ice cream truck is even here in the game, acting as your wild A combination of five reels and 25 paylines gives you plenty of opportunities to win. As is common among Eyecon games, thought has been given to accommodating players of all budgets, so you can set your stake anywhere between 25p and £12.50 depending upon your attitude to risk. Give it a try. Just don’t blame us if you find your sweet tooth tingling afterwards!
4. Temple of Isis
It would be rude to do a review of Eyecon’s range of products without showing the proper respect to their first ever game. ‘Temple of Isis’ was released way back in 2003, and it’s still available today because it’s stood the test of time. No, it may not have the flashy graphics or modern twists that have come in more recent years, but there’s a very solid game to play if you can look past that, and it’s as fun today as it ever has been.
A working knowledge of Ancient Egypt would benefit you if you were going to give it extended play, because that’s the setting for the game. The Eye of Horus, the Scarab Beetle, the snake god Apep and the cat god Bastet are all on hand to boost your winnings with bonus features. Like any visitor to Egypt, though, it’s the world famous pyramids that you’re really after. Land five of those and you could win up to 450 times your original stake!
3. Aztec Rising
Someone in a senior position at Eyecon has a strong level of interest in ancient history, because it isn’t just the Egypt of old you can visit when playing their names. The equally ancient - and spectacularly violent - Aztec civilization are also here, waiting to be discovered. Play ‘Aztec Rising’ and you can be transported right back there without the need for a time machine, and without the risk of accidentally becoming a human sacrifice!
The Aztecs were a colorful civilization with some really wild tastes when it came to fashion, and that’s reflected in the game. The visuals are very bright, standing out against the backdrop of a ruined temple, which becomes the theater for your gaming. Keep a particular lookout for any symbols relating to headgear; they’re the ones which will bring the most generous payouts. Wild animals are also your friends, so don’t be afraid of them if they suddenly appear. You are deep within the Mexican jungle, after all.
2. Enchanted Price
If you’re an experienced online slot player, we’d be amazed if you’ve never come across ‘Enchanted Price’ at least once on your travels. It’s been one of Eyecon’s most successful titles, and it’s a game which keeps players coming back time and time again. As you might expect from the title, the game is based on the fairytale of the frog and the princess. In case you need a refresher, the story is all about a princess who loses her favourite ball in a pond. She’s upset and in tears until a frog brings her ball back for her, and when she kisses him in gratitude he magically transforms into a handsome prince.
Just like the frog in the story - or, to be more polite to him, the enchanted prince (he didn’t start life out as a frog!), you’ll want to be on the lookout for your princess as you play the game. She’s the symbol who’ll bring you the most multipliers and therefore the biggest winnings, although her castle is also fairly valuable. If you just want to watch the story play out, hit the ‘auto-play’ button and sit back!
1. Fluffy Favourites
There’s no doubt that ‘Fluffy Favourites’ is the number 1 game that Eyecon has created. The title has spawned a number of equally popular sequels, but there’s no beating the charm of the original, and it’s as well-loved today as it always has been.
The game is just adorably cute to play, and that might be the key to its enduring appeal. It appeals to all genders, and the huge range of cute characters includes a pink dragon, a blue rhino, a baby gorilla and a pair of clown fish. All of them bow down to the pink elephant, though; that’s the rarest and most valuable of all the fluffy friends to be found here. Just like when you were a child, the aim of the game is to get the toy box open and claim a prize. ‘Fluffy Favourites’ is a warm-hearted, cuddly joy of a game, and it’s difficult to imagine anything taking the number one spot off it any time soon.
