Slots have been a casino staple ever since Charles Fey invented the first ‘one armed bandit’ back in 1895. They’ve come on leaps and bounds during the intervening 120-odd years. These days, hundreds of titles are released every week – covering themes from movies, to music and more.
Thanks to advances in digital technology and increasing gaming revenues, the games themselves are also more engaging than ever. Created with cutting-edge graphics and featuring the most life-like characters, the very best slot games hold their own against the latest consumer titles.
It can be a challenge to find the cream of the crop, with so many games being released. That’s where we come in. We’ve kept an eye on all the latest releases and compiled comprehensive list of the top 5.

This slot is designed for history buffs or fans of the hit Netflix show Vikings. The Scandinavian warriors were famous for their trips to foreign lands where they plundered as much as possible – and you could do that too on Vikings Voyage.
The favoured method of transportation for the sea-faring Vikings was the longboat, and that makes an appearance on this slot. When three or more appear on screen it means free spins – 10 to be exact, which usually give you the chance to double any of your wins.
There is a free version of the slot available to play as well, and when three or more longboats appear you get the chance to re-spin rather than double your wins. Look out for your Viking comrade in reels 1 and 5. He acts as the wild substituting himself for matching symbols to help you to a winning combination. The other symbols to look out for are the chalice, the Goddess and the battle-axe.
Our favourite feature of any slot game is a progressive jackpot, and Vikings has just that so you can always be on the verge of winning big.
