Online slots have been around for quite a while now; slot machines in general for a lot longer. Still, every single day there’s a new – and even more state-of-the-art! – slot machine ready to dazzle the world of online gambling. But when we look at the entire exciting journey of slot machines, which ones would fit the description of the most famous slot machine games of all time? We’ve given this topic a lot of thought and here’s which 7 slot machine games we think are the most famous ones in the world.
Naturally, this list will feature only the most famous of the famous. So, with that in mind, how can we not begin with the legendary Starburst slot? Whether you love Starburst or you hate it, there’s no denying the slot’s become somewhat of a legend in the iGaming universe.
Starburst slot is one of those games you can’t miss, what with its dark background and brightly coloured, shiny space gemstones. The futuristic music in this slot is also easily recognizable, as is the expanding Starburst wild – even 6 years after the game’s initial release.
Mega Moolah Slot
Make way for its jackpot majesty – Microgaming’s Mega Moolah! Just this year alone five players became millionaires thanks to this slot. That’s right – five – and it’s only May! In total, that’s over 18 million euros that the slot’s paid out in just four months.
Truthfully, the Mega Moolah slot is one of the most famous progressive jackpot slots ever created and the numbers clearly show why. Heck, Mega Moolah still holds the record of the biggest jackpot ever paid out with its incredible €17,879,645, so we’ll continue to keep an eye on this one without a doubt!
Dead or Alive Slot
If you dig high volatility slots, chances are Dead or Alive is one of your favourites. If, on the other hand, you don’t like high risk games, you may just be one of those players who curse the day they took this slot for a ride. Either way, you can’t deny D.o.A.’s pretty much a celebrity in these parts!
Gonzo’s Quest Slot
Back when Gonzo’s Quest slot first came into existence, it was a sight to behold. While the game may not be that innovative anymore (the Avalanche feature was quite a novelty back then and 3D slots weren’t that usual, either!), it’s still without a doubt one of the most famous slot game machines around.
Again, this is a slot with plenty of potential – depends only if it’s the type of slots you tend to go for. One of the most well known to this day, though!
Mega Fortune Slot
What Mega Moolah is in the Microgaming world could more or less be defined as what the Mega Fortune slot is for NetEnt. At least when it comes to how famous their jackpots are and, more importantly, their power to turn players into millionaires in seconds.
To this day, its biggest jackpot is €17,860,868 – so close to Mega Moolah’s record, wouldn’t you say?
Immortal Romance Slot
The Immortal Romance slot has been live since the end of 2011 – when vampires were all the rage! – but it’s still one of the most famous slots ever made with a large winning potential.
The slot’s still regarded as somewhat of a Microgaming masterpiece with its multiple bonus games, multipliers, Free Spins, and above all, its coveted Wild Desire feature that takes winning to the next level.
And last, but not least is the most famous land-based slot machine ever – IGT’s Megabucks slot. Perhaps you stick to the online gambling universe, but you’ve probably still heard of Megabucks or, better yet, the supposed Megabucks Slot Curse.
Long story short, Megabucks is a slot machine that can be found all over Nevada, it was designed by IGT and to this day it continues to inspire various urban legends – including the one where its winners meet an untimely demise. If you believe in that sort of stuff.
So, this concludes our brief list of the most famous slot machines in the world for the day. Stilll, don’t forget to tell us which slots you’d add to the list given the chances – we’re waiting to hear from you at our forum, as always!
