Although online slots have been around since the late 1990s, the technology behind them has come on leaps and bounds since then.
There are now thousands of games to choose from, as well as an ever-increasing number of software providers that are constantly coming up with new ways to ‘wow’ players.
At Gala Spins, we’re proud to offer some of the world’s most popular slot games. In this article, we look at seven of the biggest and best slots launched in the past decade and the reasons why they continue to attract new players every day.
Fluffy Favourites Megaways
Although the first Fluffy Favourites slot by Eyecon was released in 2006 and remained one of the most played slot games of all time, its popularity has led to several exciting sequels from the software developer.
In 2021, Eyecon released its most highly anticipated sequel of all, Fluffy Favourites Megaways, which uses Big Time Gaming’s top-rated Megaways game engine.
The Fluffy Favourites Megaways slot includes six reels, up to 117,649 ways to win, cascades, increasing win multipliers in both the base game and the ‘Free Spins Bonus’, a ‘Claw Feature’, and a top payout of 25,000 times the total bet. Sounds like a top place to spin!
Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold
Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold at Gala Spins is based on the world-famous Rainbow Riches slot of 2006.
Pots of Gold is one of many sequels that has appeared in recent years, along with Leprechauns Gold, Pick‘N’Mix, Midnight Magic, and Race Day.
Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold has made it into our list of best slots of the past decade because it includes a thrilling ‘Mega Drop’ element.
The ‘Mega Drop’ feature consists of not one, not two, but three progressive jackpots—Minor, Major, and Epic. Rather than awarding cash amounts solely to one player, the winnings are shared between everyone who’s contributed to the jackpot in the 15 minutes prior to it being won. Grand!
Wish Upon a Jackpot
Blueprint Gaming’s Wish Upon a Jackpot slot has been around since 2013. Part of its charm is the fairy-tale theme that brings you much-loved characters like the Fairy Godmother, Pinocchio, Puss in Boots, Rumpelstiltskin, Rapunzel, and the Three Little Pigs.
Gala Spins’ Wish Upon a Jackpot slot is brimming with special features, including wild reels, expanding wilds, free spins, win spins, cash trails, sticky wilds, and a ‘Deal Maker Bonus’.
It’s also part of the Jackpot King network, which means that you have the chance to win the Hourly, Daily or Mega Jackpot every time that you play it. Gotta love a jackpot!
Clover Rollover 2
Clover Rollover 2 is, of course, based on the first Clover Rollover slot by Eyecon.
The original game was released in 2008, and due to its immense popularity, Eyecon followed it up with a superb sequel 12 years later.
Clover Rollover 2 at Gala Spins features charming imagery inspired by the ‘Emerald Isle’, five paylines that pay both ways, and wins of up to 10,000 times your total stake (courtesy of the four-leaf clover symbol).
More? It also boasts three progressive jackpots called the Mini, Maxi, and Mega.
We’ve been able to reel in the Fishin’ Frenzy slot from Reel Time Gaming since 2014, and it continues to net new fans every year.
Although Blueprint Gaming has since enhanced the original game with a sequel that uses the Megaways game engine, the charm and simplicity of the first Fishin’ Frenzy slot make it a firm player favourite.
In the slot’s ‘Free Spins Bonus’, the fisherman wild symbol can help you net fish in return for instant cash rewards of up to 50 times your bet. Want to see if you can haul onboard a win on Fishin’ Frenzy at Gala Spins?
Bonanza is a ground-breaking slot from Big Time Gaming that made its debut in late 2016.
What makes Bonanza such a breath-taking title and a trendsetter for many online slots that have been released since is its powerful Megaways mechanic, offering players as many as 117,649 ways to win.
The Bonanza slot at Gala Spins also offers wild symbols and a scatter symbol that can award the ‘Free Spins Bonus’, where you get to take advantage of an increasing and unlimited win multiplier!
It’s a medium-to-high variance game that has the potential to award up to 10,000 times your stake on each free spin.
The number one spot on our list of games of the decade is none other than NetEnt’s Starburst.
Since it launched in 2012, it continues to be one of the most popular titles at both online casinos and bingo sites.
The Starburst slot at Gala Spins is a timeless classic by NetEnt that uses five reels and ten paylines. It comes with arcade-style graphics and an outer space themed background, and the focus of the gameplay is firmly on the ‘Starburst Wilds’ feature.
These special wild symbols can only appear on the middle three reels, where they can expand to trigger as many as three re-spins with wild reels. What a superstar!
