What Were the Top Slots of 2020?
2020 was a massive year for online gaming. The worldwide coronavirus pandemic meant multiple lockdowns in most countries, which in turn led to bumper revenue for online casinos.
So, what were the top slots of the year that kept everyone so entertained? We take a look.
Starburst is a modern classic. With five reels, three rows, and a nice RTP, this is a game for all, and it’s one that can be played by those with just about any budget due to its wide betting range.
Starburst has several features that make it enjoyable, not least its unpredictable nature and volatility, but most of all, it is famous for being one of the games featured in major progressive jackpots, which have led to players winning many millions of pounds.
We do love a good narrative as well as fine game mechanics, and that is what has made Cleopatra so special. The game features 20 active paylines, with payouts coming whenever you match the symbols on an active bet line.
Naturally, there is an Egyptian theme here, which has often been replicated, though never beaten, while the good chance of a payout means that the game remains fair to all players, which is more important than its admittedly colourful, adventurous story.
3 Mega Moolah
Mega Moolah is another game many have used to grab huge wins via its progressive jackpot system. There are four different jackpots to claim in Mega Moolah at any one time, with the bonus round being triggered according to how big your stake is.
Players get to spin the wheel of fortune, thus unlocking those possible jackpots which have led to wins in the millions for some lucky people. There is nothing much not to like about Mega Moolah, and while it has been around for a while, it had a very successful 2020.
4 Gonzo’s Quest
Gonzo’s Quest is another well-established game, but again one that was particularly triumphant for its developers and casino operators during what was otherwise a troubling year.
The game is big on detail, features brilliant colours, and wins, loses, or draw it manages to keep players coming back, though it’s not as if it isn’t fair and doesn’t produce its share of big winners.
Payouts are good at Gonzo’s Quest, and some big jackpots have been landed. As if to accentuate the game’s success, an online bingo version has now been developed, bringing in the virtual crowds.
5 Reel Rush
Not everybody forced into lockdown during 2020 was willing to gamble, but many still took to online slots to relieve the monotony. Some of the best games on the market are free to play, including Reel Rush.
Reel Rush can be played without the risk or cheaply if you want to dip your toe in, and that’s something that made it very popular during the year for those on a budget.
Of course, if you can afford to go big, then this is where Reel Rush really comes into its own. Wild symbols here can lead to wins of up to 1000 times your stake if you can match five symbols. The ‘real’ Reel Rush has been a lifesaver for some people, while others have landed mega wins.
