Slot machines continue to be the most popular online gambling for real money gaming adventures at the online casino. Playing slots is a satisfying gaming experience for high rollers and low level bettors alike. Gaming designers released hundreds of new slots in 2018. Most performed adequately but some 2018 games really stood out for their storylines, their bonus features and their adaptability to varied gaming platforms.
A review of some of the best slots games of 2018 include:
Santastic -- 4th Place as Best Slot of 2018
Voted as the 4th best slot of 2018, Santastic was released just in time for the 2018 Christmas season but it’s a game that you’d enjoy playing all year long. The Santa Clause-themed slot machine
Santastic slots gets you in the mood for celebration and festivities with symbols of stockings, Christmas puddings, the North Pole, Elves, stockings and Rudolph plus Santa himself. In addition to the payline wins you can multiply your prizes x2, x3 and up to x6 with the game’s generous multipliers.
This is a game for moderate bettors as well as high-stakes players – bets range between 0.25 coins and 1.25 coins. There are only 5 paylines on the reels so you don’t have to spread your bets out too far to achieve multiple 3 of a kind winning combinations.
Festive Fortunes --3rd Place as Best Slot of 2018
Low paying symbols include teddy bears and candy canes while high payout symbols are images of the North Pole, elves and Rudolph. A payline full of matching Santa symbols is worth 100 coins. The Xmas spirit includes double and triple wilds which give you the chance to double or triple your prize. The multiplier goes up to x6!
There’s an immediate Jackpot that you can achieve when you spin 3 Jackpot symbols on a played line. If the Jackpot symbol emerges on the centre reel that reel becomes “sticky” and holds while the other positions spin – even more chances to get the jackpot!
Three-of-a-kind wins trigger the Festive Feast Feature. In this feature you can choose your festivity – either a Bonus Meter which awards additional Jackpot Spins, a bank boost of 2,500x your bet, or up to 25 retriggering free games with a double payout on each free game win.
Plentiful Treasure -- 2nd Place as Best Slot of 2018
This mysterious game garnered reviews that deemed it to be the second best slot of 2018. Plentiful Treasure brings together ancient Chinese gods, Asian treasures and slot machine gaming fun. The game centers on the secrets of Chinese emperors’ storehouses which were filled with gold and jewels. Archaeologists have been digging up these riches for years and how you can spin the reels to collect your portion of the priceless assets.
The game is packed with exciting features and jackpots. Each of the 4 gods featured in the game leads to another jackpot prize along with a Gold Coin feature. The game also features the popular 243 All Ways to Win.
There are two wilds, the Bao – treasure – and the Pearl. When the Bao appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 it substitutes for regular symbols and completes the payline. The Pearl appears only on the 3rd reel but if it completes a payline the payout is multiplied by x5.
There’s a scatter in this game as well, the Tripod, which creates scatter combination payouts to go with the regular wins that come from the other symbols including the Gold Coins, the Bowls, the Caskets, Rings, Teapots, necklaces and more. When three or more Tripod Scatters appear, scattered anywhere on the reels, the Free Games trigger. In the free game, the player receives 8 free spins and collects the resulting wins without adding deposits on those spins.
I, Zombie – Best Slot of 2018
Slots gamers around the world voted I, Zombie as the top slot of 2018. I, Zombie follows the adventures of Zombies as chronicled in the immensely popular iZombie TV and comic book series.
I, Zombie examines the zombies of ancient China where warriors battled against the brain-eating zombie creatures. Every Zombie brings you closer to winning big payouts and jackpot prizes.
The game is full of special features, the most lucrative of which is the Mirror. The mirror is the scatter which can trigger the Free Games feature whenever 3 scatters appear anywhere on the reels. In the free spins game extra Wilds appear, substituting for regular symbols and creating more paylines. If you trigger the Free Games feature with more Scatters your wins can double and triple throughout the feature.
The I, Zombie logo is the game wild which completes paylines and delivers multiplied payouts when a Wild is involved in a winning payline. Other high-value symbols include the elderly Sensei, a Blue, knife-holding female warrior and the Red Sorceress. Zombies appear on the reels throughout the spins, adding more winning payouts throughout.
One unique feature of the I, Zombie slot machine is that when a I, Zombie scatter or wild appear on the same reel, a Wild Reel is triggered. When that happens, the new reel’s Wild delivers more and bigger wins. Three or more Mirrors on the reels triggers the free games and for each I, Zombie Wild and Mirror Scatter that occur, gamers receive 2 freebies.
If four Scatters trigger the feature all payouts double and if five Scatters activate the free spins all resulting prizes triple. Every Wild and Scatter that appears during the feature produces more Wilds on the reels. The free spins round retriggers.
