Many players enjoyed spinning the reels at Lucky Pants Bingo in 2020 across a variety of exciting slots, both new and old (yes, we don’t just bring you bingo games). But which of these games did players love the most? Here’s the list of our top slot games of 2020 (in no particular order), and what they’re like. Have we included any of your favourites?
1. ALOHA! CLUSTER PAYS
Payline: Cluster Pays™
Features: Sticky Win Re-spins, Free Spins, Rolling Reels, Scatter, Wilds
Want to travel to a beautiful tropical beach but you’re stuck at home right now? Aloha! Cluster Pays is a fantastic 6-reel, Hawaiian holiday-themed slot from renowned game developer NetEnt. This title was first leased in 2016 and is still well-loved, which isn’t surprising to those who are already fans of the game. Aloha! Cluster Pays transports you to pristine sandy beaches, with the player spinning reels filled with coconuts, flowers, seashells, and tiki masks for a chance at striking it rich! Enjoy the calming Hawaiian luau music as you play for a win with an RTP (return to player) of 96.42%.
With its fun, light-hearted atmosphere, fantastic graphics, and foot-tapping luau beats, it’s not surprising that Aloha! Cluster Pays remains a popular title.
Payline: Cluster Pays™
Features: Expanding Wilds Re-spin, Cluster Pays, Wilds
Looking for something to satisfy that sweet craving? Berryburst is a game from NetEnt that gives players a slot experience that isn’t only fun, but hits the “sweet spot” too. As with many of this developer’s titles, the game features incredibly detailed graphics, and a catchy pop beat (filled with flutes and marimba-like instruments), giving this 2018 title a delicious take on fruit-themed online slot games.
But what does it take to win? This game also uses the same cluster-pays system found in the first entry on our list, Aloha! Cluster Pays, but players only need to land 5 of the same symbol to trigger a win. Players also have wilds, which help with winning combinations, as well as wild respins, which give you another chance to win when you land a wild! I think many of you would agree that this fact – and the slot’s RTP of 96.56% – are pretty… wild, right?
While Berryburst may not reinvent the wheel (or cherries) when compared to other fruity online slots, it definitely offers incredibly high production values that help it stand out from the crowd.
3. FLUFFY FAVOURITES
Features: Scatter, Wilds, Free Spins, Toybox Pick Bonus Round
It’s not often we see such a cute approach to online slots, so Fluffy Favourites is undoubtedly a rare game with its stuffed animals and other adorable imagery.
This online slot is a 5-reel game with 25 paylines and an RTP of 95.38%, and comes with bonuses that include a wild symbol, free-game bonus and Toybox Pick. The Toybox Pick bonus begins when you land 3 “claw” (as in amusement-arcade claw machines…) symbols, and it can get you 100x your wager (it’s great fun too – wait ’til you see what happens). The wild symbol (a cute fluffy elephant) not only stands in for other symbols (except the claw), but it also helps you double your win. Finally, if you get between 3 and 5 of these adorable pink elephants, you can enjoy up to 25 free games!
This fluffy experience from developer Eyecon may not look all that fancy, but there’s no doubt that this game, with its very youthful approach to design and graphics, has found a special place in the hearts of players around the world.
4. FLUFFY TOO
Features: Scatter, Wilds, Free Spins, Coin Pusher Bonus Game
You know what they say: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – just give it a fresh coat of paint!” This is definitely what Eyecon did with Fluffy Too, the sequel, or update, to its hit game Fluffy Favourites (see above). Fans of the first game can enjoy the vibrant graphics upgrade while also enjoying the classic Fluffy Favourites experience they know and love!
But while most of this game remains unchanged, the Toybox Pick bonus game has been replaced with another exciting arcade game – the Coin Pusher! Many people will remember those game cabinets with the sliding shelves where you put a coin in the top, and hoped that it would fall and push some coins off the shelf and into your lucky hands! Well now you can relive the experience with this bonus game in Fluffy Too!
5. LUCKY LADY’S CHARM DELUXE
Payline: 10 Paylines
Features: Wilds, Scatter, Free Spins
From the graphics and the sounds, right down to the buttons, Lucky Lady’s Charm Deluxe from Novomatic is undoubtedly influenced by classic slots of yesteryear.
Join the Lucky Lady herself in this 5-reel, 10-payline game filled with all sorts of good-fortune symbols, including lucky coins, four-leaf clovers, and lucky rabbit’s feet. With an RTP of 95.13%, players can take advantage of two classic bonuses, scatters (a crystal ball) and wilds (the Lucky Lady), to boost their winnings.
Get 5 crystal balls and you could win up to 500x your total bet while also triggering free spins, if you land between 3 and 5 scatters. The Lucky Lady wild not only replaces other symbols to increase your odds of winning, but also offers a multiplier of 900x, if you’re lucky enough to get 5.
While this “old-school” game may not be loved by everyone, fans of retro games have had a great experience with this title.
6. RAINBOW RICHE
Payline: 20 Paylines
Features: Scatter, Wilds, Road to Riches, Wishing Well, Pots of Gold
Another entry on our amazing list that embraces retro slots, Rainbow Riches offers players a chance at riches with a lucky leprechaun in tow!
Developer Barcrest has gone with a tried-and-true formula with this Irish Luck-themed slot game. It has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, as well as 3 great bonus features: the Wishing Wells, Road to Riches, and Pots of Gold bonuses! If you’re lucky enough to trigger the Wishing Well bonus, you could land a multiplier that doubles your wager – or even increases it by 500x! But don’t worry: you won’t miss out if you land either of the other bonuses, as both of them could also help you win a whopping 500x your total wager.
Even though Rainbow Riches has an RTP of exactly 95%, this classic series of slots is clearly loved by gamblers who are searching for the lucky leprechaun’s pot of gold!
7. SHAMAN’S DREAM
Payline: 25 Paylines
Features: Scatter, Wilds, Free Spins, Bonus Round
If you’re looking for a slot adventure with a Native American theme, Shaman’s Dream could definitely bring your imagination to life!
Another game from Eyecon, this 5-reel slot has 25 paylines and an RTP of 95%. Players get to enjoy a slot experience filled with different symbols from Native American culture, including wild wolves, eagles, hatchets, and teepees! If you land 3 or more of the scatter symbol, the dreamcatcher, not only do you get 15 free games, you also triple your potential winnings. The wolf wild symbol can also help you win big by doubling your potential win. If luck is on your side, you can also meet the mystical shaman to pick a card. Choose correctly and you double your takings. But choose poorly and lose everything!
Shaman’s Dream is more than just a dream for those who loved to play this online slot in 2020!
Payline: 10 Paylines
Features: Expanding Wilds, Re-spins, Win Both Ways
Starburst is a classic slot that boldly goes where no other slot has before – by offering players a great time for more than eight years!
This sci-fi online slot from NetEnt is loved by gamblers all over the world. It features 5 reels, and has 10 fixed paylines. Its graphics are undoubtedly simple by today’s standards, but are incredibly clean and well-designed, helping it withstand the test of time. The calming music also offers players a more mellow experience than some other online slots.
When it comes to winnings and bonus features, Starburst is a relatively simple game. It has an RTP of 96.09%, and expanding wilds and respins for those lucky enough to land them.
Where many other games have faded away, Starburst is one that keeps on burning brightly!
9. TEMPLE OF IRIS
Payline: 25 Paylines
Features: Scatter, Wild, Free Spins, Bonus Round
Journey to the time of the pharaohs in Temple of Iris.
This 5-reel slot from Eyecon is a simple Egyptian-themed game with an RTP of 95%. While the game may not look that special at first glance, it offers a mahoosive 9,500x multiplier, which is probably why so many players keep on coming back to this classic experience. And classic it is, with players triggering bonus games (which can triple their wins) when they land 3 or more scatters. Wilds are also on offer, with the chance of winning double your wager if you’re lucky enough to land one.
Thankfully you didn’t have to be born hundreds of years ago to stand the chance to live like a pharoah – you can play Temple of Iris and hopefully win big to enjoy a luxurious life, just like ancient Egyptian royalty!
10. WISH UPON A STAR
Payline: All Ways
Features: Scatter, Stacked Wild, Free Spins, Wish Upon a Star Jackpots
While some may wish upon a star (in the sky), others prefer to play Wish Upon A Star for a chance at winning big.
The last game on our list comes from developer Novomatic, and is a 5-reel slot with an amazing 243 paylines! This jolly, Christmas-themed game has highly detailed graphics and a Christmassy beat that you can’t help but tap your feet or nod your head to. When it comes to winning, the game has a healthy 200-coin jackpot. Players might get lucky and win up to 10x their wager if they trigger the bonus prize with 3 present symbols. If fortune’s on their side, they might also land the free games, or mini, minor, or major jackpot, and stand an even greater chance of winning big.
Christmas may only come once a year, but Wish Upon A Star allows you to revel in the festive spirit all year round!
