2020 has been one of the biggest years for online gambling so far. More and more people cooped up inside during lockdowns have been turning to casinos to get their kicks. A fan-favourite for newbies and seasoned pros alike is the humble slot machine. Their accessibility and variety are such that even a gambling geek like me can still spend hours on them!
This post will run through some of my favourite slots games from 2020. I’ve picked them for their replay value, jackpots and uniqueness.
The three games below are my personal faves.
1. Book of Dead
This one comes from one of the best casino sites out there in my opinion. Regal Wins Casino has some great titles and Book of Dead has to be one of the best. You explore the world of handsome adventurer Rich Wilde who’s on a mission to uncover some of the world’s most precious artefacts. It’s a 5-reel game with 10 paylines.
I’m a huge fan of the aesthetic of this one; the music and graphics all do a great job of plunging you into the Egyptian landscape. If you’re a risk taker like me, the “gamble” feature on this game will be up your street.
2. Dead or Alive 2
If you’re more into a wild-west theme, this one might be for you. This is a fantastic 5-reel game with 9 bet lines. There’s plenty of variety on offer to keep things interesting. I’m particularly fond of the scatter wins and “wild substitution” features. Just remember that if you’re playing with free spins, you won’t be able to find the scatter symbol.
If you’re a more experienced player, the autoplay game mode will likely be the best option for you. It plays through all available spins for your selected number of rounds. If you’re playing for real money, the game history section keeps a log of all your previous games.
3. Monopoly Megaways
Monopoly Megways was massive when it first came out in 2019 and it’s maintained steam right the way through to the end of 2020. This game takes what you know and love from the iconic board game and elevates it in a nail-biting game of chance.
Your goal is to build up houses and make your “millions”. Chance cards and other events can trigger free spins and bonuses. I often find myself using the autoplay function on this game. The animations and pace are fantastic, but sometimes you just want to get to the action. Choose your preferred number of rounds and click play to get started.
These games didn’t make the top 3, but they’re still awesome.
Fantastic soundtrack and gameplay that elevates the classic slot format. Stick your fingers in the jam jar and get your reward!
Rise of Merlin
A brilliant game from industry legends Play‘n Go. Ten paylines are on offer with this action-packed, adventure-focussed game.
