To us at Springbok it’s very important to stay up to date with the preferences of our customers. We like to know what you like, and we’re happy to share with everyone the top games that have been keeping you busy in 2019.
While certain new titles become instantly popular, there are also games that have been at the very top when it comes to being consistent and being trendy all the time, at least ever since they were released. Appealing themes, well-implemented features, good payouts and excellent graphics – all of these parameters affect whether a slot will be well received among the audience. According to our Top 5 Slots list for 2019, these are the games that entertained the most Springbok players throughout the year.
1 - Sweet 16
Before you immerse yourself in endless nostalgia, you should know that Sweet 16 is all about candy. It is a vibrant, very colourful slot game released in 2016. As soon as it hit the casino floor, it became a massive hit, and remained at the top for all this time. The game is right up your ally if you have a sweet tooth – and we all know a lot of people do. By combining pastel colours with flashy, striking tones, Sweet 16 draws your eye and never lets you look away. The game uses a standard 5x3 configuration and pays out according to the all-ways-pay system. Sweet, tempting jelly beans, lollipops and toffees create winning combinations left to right and vice versa, and you can also count on multipliers to increase your rewards.
Sweet 16 is playable on mobile phones, tablets and desktops. The main feature has the same name as the slot, and requires 3 Scatter symbols to get triggered. Land them on a single spin, and you will obtain 16 free games complete with Morph Magic multipliers which have the power to multiply your bet from 2x up to 20x. We all know sugar is bad if you consume it excessively, but tasting the sweetness every now and then is a pleasure nothing else can match – even in the slot world.
2 - Cash Bandits 2
Cash Bandits 2 was launched in 2017. Two years later, it’s one of the top games here at Springbok, loved by punters all over South Africa. The sequel to Cash Bandits didn’t have any troubles to attract players, given that the original slot was already very popular. It also focuses on the theme of bank robbers and police and has the reels set against an image of a bank where the conflict is taking place. The design is very appealing, cartoonish and humorous, and spinning the reels is a lot of fun. It’s a classic tale of robbers and policemen which will put a smile on your face.
The slot Cash Bandits 2 has 25 paying lines and 5 reels; it features Wilds, up to 190 free spins with 17x multipliers and two progressive jackpots, Minor and Major. This crime-themed slot is mobile-friendly and offers players a great opportunity to put their hands on some cash hidden in the bank vaults without the risk of doing anything against any laws. The choice of music is also excellent in this one, with a good old-school feel to it.
3 - Cleopatra's Gold
Being one of RTG’s trademark releases, Cleopatra’s Gold slot is an all-time favourite among online punters. It is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot with retro visuals which have now been surpassed with HD graphics and 3D technology, yet video slots like this never seem to go out of fashion. It must be because they yield sizeable payouts. Cleopatra’s Gold boasts a progressive jackpot which can be awarded on any random spin, and that’s what makes it irresistible.
The slot pays left to right, beginning from the far left reel and only two of a kind is needed to start winning. Getting 3 or more Pyramid Scatters anywhere on the reels triggers the free spins round during which you can win 15 free spins extra and all your wins will be tripled. Out of all the online slots on the market inspired by Egyptian culture and mythology, Cleopatra’s Gold is one of the simplest ones, as well as one of the most rewarding.
4 - Achilles
Springbok customers love Cleopatra, but they also love Achilles, the great warrior from Greek mythology. The enemy of Troy in the original epic, Achilles is known in popular culture as one of the bravest and strongest warriors we’ve known. He’s immortalized once again in a 20-payline video slot with 5 reels and 3 rows, by RTG. The game was released in 2012 and since then it awards a progressive jackpot at random. By land three or more Achilles Wilds on the reels you will trigger up to 25 free plays with tripled wins. The round can expand with 10 extra spins and doubled wins if you land Troy Scatter symbols during the feature.
The progressive jackpot is that life-changing win everyone craves, but even if that does not happen to you, don’t worry. Achilles offers a maximum payout up to 50,000 times the bet per line in a single spin. To this day, it is one of the most popular slots to ever leave RTG’s creative kitchen.
Switching up to Norse mythology and we get to Asgard, an interesting all-ways-pay video slot which also assumes its position on our Top 5 Slots of 2019 list. This one follows a slightly different structure from the rest, as it has 243 ways to win. Asgard was released in December 2017 and features the characters of Freya, Loki, Thor and Odin, as well as Golden Wilds which double the payout and a bonus game with 4 different free spins rounds.
Asgard has brilliant visuals and works seamlessly across all platforms - instant-play, download and mobile. The special features are triggered either with the help of bonuses symbols or after a certain number of triggers. You can benefit from the Goddess feature (15 free spins with tripled wins), Loki’s Magic (20 free games with special Wilds on reel 3), the Thunder God feature and the Valhalla feature which are activated on the 10th and 15th trigger, respectively. The game is packed with multipliers, freebies, respins and a lot of innovative details, so it’s a great choice for players with a refined taste and high ambitions.
