Slots and video slots are amongst the most popular category of games in online casinos and are also the category which is most profitable for the casinos to operate. This follows the pattern set before the online world came to the fore with slot machines in casinos and pubs historically the highest grossing gambling product excluding sports betting. As such casino software providers place a lot of emphases on developing great video slot games to keep online gamers entertained and coming back for more. With so many keen slots fans out there we have decided to look at who are the top online casinos in the UK for anyone keen to spin some reels on the slots.
I’ve been playing slots both online and offline for many years now. As such I have a pretty good idea as to which online casinos are best for slots, both for the quality and variety of the games they offer as well how well they treat their players. Some casinos make the most effort with new players, others with longstanding loyal players, the best with both, and the worst with neither. The online casinos we’ll look at here all fall into the third category and offer good intro and ongoing loyalty bonuses to clients as well as high quality customer service and support.
Online slots and video slots can be separated into categories by a large extent by the companies which develop them. There are a handful of companies which develop the vast majority of slot games you are likely to come across on online casinos. Online casinos tend to have an affiliation with one major software provider and all or the majority of the games offered by that casino will be from that company. Though some casinos also offer a selection of games from other software developers. Regular slot players often have a preference for games produced by a particular company and will choose their casino accordingly.
For slots players who have a preference for Net Entertainment games such as the two South Park titles, Lost Island and Aliens, probably the best destination is Betsson. The Malta-licensed casino of Scandinavian origins was the majority owner of NetEnt for several years and as such have a very close relationship with the company which is ongoing though NetEnt were subsequently spun off and listed on the Swedish Stock Exchange. Pretty much the full NetEnt stable of games is available on Betsson but the casino also offers a range of the best games produced by rival developers such as Playtech and Microgaming, making it a top destination for slot players.
For fans of Novomatic slots such as Cleopatra, the Ancient Egypt-themed game, and the hugely popular Rainbow Riches, Paddy Power is as good a casino as any to go to. The customer services and bonuses are second to none which is what puts it out in front of rivals such as Virgin Casino and Sky Vegas, which are also Novomatic casinos.
Microgaming loyalists partial to spinning some reels on the Thunderstruck titles, risqué Playboy slot or Immortal Romance will find the full Microgaming slot library available on 32Red Casino, one of the UK’s biggest online casinos.
