What do you think that Charles D. Fey, inventor of the world’s first commercially viable slot machine back in the late 1800s, would say when he was faced with the full extent of the slot industry’s massive expansion over the last few decades? For a start the idea of an online slot would be completely understandable to the instrumental Californian engineer, and it just shows how far the industry has come since it began over a century ago.
Indeed, you only need to look at the quality of games in 2020 to see how far the industry has come. Online slots these days are at such a high caliber due to the tremendous work put in by developers such as NetEnt, Play’n GO, Blueprint Gaming, Big Time Gaming and many more. Read ahead or follow the link for some of the best slot games to play in 2020, a mix of new releases and golden classics!
Rise of Olympus
Rise of Olympus is a new game from the Swedish developing powerhouse Play’n GO, and comes as part of their wider range of “Rise of” slot games that often deal with some kind of mythological theme. In this case we are welcomed to the world of Ancient Greek mythology, with the legendary Mount Olympus playing home to the likes of Zeus, Hades and Poseidon.
This 5 reel slot game looks absolutely fantastic, however our favorite thing about it was the fact that each bonus feature gives the gamblers a choice between one of the three aforementioned gods, with each one having their specialties. It means that bonus features can be highly customizable, and therefore bundles of fun!
Another new release from the people over at Play’n GO, Moon Princess is one of a surprisingly rare amount of anime themed slots, and the developer has got the aesthetics down to a tee here. Seriously, we simply cannot get enough of this slot, it really looks as though the company has put a serious amount of thought into its aesthetics, and the trade off is massive.
Play’n GO also employ the use of an innovative cascading wins and cluster pays reel mechanic which works on a 5×5 grid. Instead of having any spinning reels groups of the same symbols will disappear from the grid, letting new icons fall from above in the process.
Immortal Romance is quite an old game from Microgaming, however we are very excited to hear that it is getting a revamp and should be ready for release incredibly soon. Regardless, it is still pretty difficult to beat the original Immortal Romance, mainly because of the excitement generated by the chronological nature of its bonus rounds.
Each bonus round uncovered more information about the increasingly tense vampire narrative that the Microgaming classic is based upon, which means that gamblers are not only treated to bigger and better multipliers each time, but also an exciting chunk of the story.
