Phew! We’ve reached the very end of a very exciting year, especially when it comes to new slot releases. From January to December there have been myriads of new and high-quality online slots, which is why it definitely hasn’t been easy for us to narrow our choice down to just 12 best online slots of 2017. Still, we’ve taken various criteria into consideration and finally come up with these 12. Let’s take a quick look at each for a bit before jumping onto our fantastic infographic featuring all 12 best slots of the year, shall we?
Pink Elephants, White Rabbits, Beasts and Bulls
We aren’t going to rank the slots from 1 to 12, so let’s start in medias res with the Pink Elephants slot developed by Thunderkick. Gorgeously designed, fun and featuring 4096 paylines to play with! What’s more, you can hit both Free Spins and an additional Spin in the Elephant Orbs bonus game. The White Rabbit slot, developed by Big Time Gaming, is your perfect Alice in Wonderland slot, with even more paylines – 248382 paylines! What makes this game worth your time is its Extending Reels feature, as well as the Megaways feature that offers thousands more ways to win.
The beginning of 2017 was all about the Beauty & The Beast slot by Yggdrasil Gaming – and how could it not with its hauntingly beautiful music and the Golden Bet feature with plenty innovative ways to land Spins. As for the Wild Toro slot, developed by Elk Studios, not only does it feature a mixture of fun bonus games and Walking Wilds, but it was also voted Game of the Year at EGR Operator Awards 2017!
From Moby Dick and Irish Luck to Berserk Vikings and Divine Fortunes
One of NetEnt’s biggest hits of the year was the Divine Fortune slot with four bonus features, filled with wilds, Free Spins and a jackpot bonus game where you can land massive amounts of cash, given it’s a progressive slot. Microgaming’s Moby Dick slot won players – and us – over with its freezing winning combos, making way for more wins with every consequent spin. Simply makes you want to join Captain Ahab’s ranks right away, doesn’t it?
Another NetEnt’s game found its way to our top 12 list – the Finn and the Swirly Spin slot. A fan of good ol’ Irish luck? You’ll dig this slot with its inventive swirly reels and Spins, diverse Free Spin games and random bonus features – each more fun than the next. The Vikings Go Berzerk slot by Yggdrasil Gaming made the cut, too – and it’s easy to see why. Apart from Free Spins, the Vikings collect ‘rage’ every time you win and more rage means bigger wins. On top of everything, there’s a Treasure Chest with prizes, too!
Of Blood Suckers, Piggies, Moon Princesses and Sakura
The Sakura Fortune slot by Quickspin dazzled us with its smooth graphics, Free Spins, expanding symbols and re-spins, while the NetEnt’s follow-up to an already successful slot, Blood Suckers II slot, showed us all just how stellar sequels can be. Re-triggerable Spins with multipliers, doubled and tripled coin wins and various other random bonus features galore!
With the colourful 7 Piggies slot from Pragmatic Play you’ll be dealing with stackable symbols and wilds, with plenty of opportunities for Free Spins and random multipliers. As for the Moon Princess slot by Play'n GO, there are three separate princesses, each with her own special features. Transforming symbols, Free Rounds, growing multipliers and whole lotta fun are what’s in store for you with this slot.
