As to be expected, with so many slots out there, there are the good, the bad and the ugly. Some slots you play the once and wish you didn’t, others you try but probably would not return to and then there are those that are so good, you must try them at least once. Chances are that once will not be enough when you play the game.

This Irish themed slot has become a classic thanks to its fun presentation and bonus features. It’s a 5 reel 20 pay line slot powered by Barcrest.
The main character is a Leprechaun and the game has three popular bonus features. The first is the Road to Riches money trail that is triggered by landing three or more Leprechauns on the reels and you can win 500x your stake.
Then there is the Wishing Well Bonus feature. Landing 3 or more Wishing Well symbols anywhere on the reels triggers this. Then the words Pick Me appear on each well. Once you make your choice, a multiplier of your original stake will be revealed. Again you can win 500x your bet amount.
The bonuses are rounded off with the Pots Of Gold feature. If you land 3 pots you are taken to a screen containing gold, silver and bronze pots that spin around in a circle. Each has a multiplier attached and you can again win 500x your stake should the spin stop on the highest value pot.
In 2006 Barcrest released Rainbow Riches, this has been their biggest hit to date. Following on from this success, Barcrest entered the interactive gaming sector and produced content for mobile and internet gaming.
In 2011 Scientific Games brought Barcrest. SG Digital is a division of the Scientific Games Corporation and now produces games for betting shops, arcade and bingo establishments across the UK
It’s clear to see the quirky appeal of this game and it’s all served up with a sense of fun.
Even historical figures are not safe from being immortalized by a slot game and Cleopatra has become a bit of a classic. This slot from IGT utilizers the sights, sounds and iconography from Ancient Egypt. It has been around since 2005 but still remains fresh. It’s another 5 reel 20 playline slot with a great bonus round.
The star here is not surprisingly Cleopatra herself and she acts as a wild symbol. Landing 5 Cleopatra’s pays an astonishing 10,000x your stake. If you land 3 or more Sphinx symbols they act as the Scatter symbol and initiate the 15 free spins bonus with all winnings multiplied by 3.
IGT was founded in 1981 and moved their slots operation online to meet demand. They were recently acquired by Gtech but were world leaders in slot development before this.
Cleopatra is tremendous fun especially when the bonus retriggers and should definitely be played at least the once.
If you like animals then Mega Moolah is bursting with them and it’s all presented in a colourful cartoon-style slot. There are 25 pay lines and the scatter symbol that initiates the free spin bonus round is the Monkey.
Three or more are needed to do this and they trigger 15 free spins and all wins during the bonus are tripled. There is also a retrigger of the bonus if you hit the required amount of scatter symbols during the bonus round
This game is worth trying for the famous Progressive Jackpot that is triggered randomly and runs into millions of pounds.
Microgaming developed the first casino software back in 1994 and are now leading slots developers.
This is probably not the most thrilling of slots but because of the huge jackpot it’s worth spinning at least once.
Book Of Dead is one of the most popular book-themed games. Landing 3 or more books on the 5 reels triggers the bonus round. Here a symbol is chosen at random and expands to fill the reels during the 10 free spins bonus round. The most valuable symbol is Rich Wilde the explorer.
This 10 pay line 5 reeler can be played for as little as 1p for a one-line bet but is best when all pay lines are active.
Play N Go entered the online gaming world in 1997 and have since gone from strength to strength winning awards for their software and games.
This is a thrilling slot with great production design and sound. Playing it once will never be enough.
This is the second entry from Microgaming. Thunderstruck 2 is a 5 reel slot that boasts 243 ways to win. It is based on Norse mythology and can be played at low and high stakes.
Symbols on the reels include the traditional A, K, Q, J, 10 and the theme-specific symbols are a Viking Ship and the Nordic gods Valhalla, Valkyrie, Loki, Odin and Thor who is the most valuable of all the god symbols.
The Thunderstruck II symbol acts as a wild and substitutes for all symbols apart from Thor’s Hammer, which acts as the scatter and landing three or more activates the bonus round.
Microgaming continues to be leaders in the industry and their products such as online casinos, Poker, Bingo, Sportsbooks and more, are used by major online casinos and gambling brands.
Thunderstruck 2 is tremendously fun to play with great free spin bonuses. It also benefits from the random Wild Storm feature that turns complete reels into wilds.
