What a wonderful year 2018 has been for online slots Canada. We have seen all the biggest game providers in the business bring a whole host of great slots in all shapes and sizes. We have seen new innovations both in technology and design which has made playing slot machine games online more exciting than ever before. With 2019 just around the corner, we thought it was time to look back at our top 5 favourite slot games of 2018, so if you haven’t enjoyed them yet, you can give yourself an early Christmas present.
5) Penguin City | Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil have made some serious waves this year in the casino industry, dropping numerous slots throughout the year, but Penguin City is one that really stands out for us. I mean, how can you not love a slot where the concept revolves around helping enslaved Penguins escape from a food emporium?! And indeed, the main feature of this game is the Penguin Escape Mode which triggers continuous re-spins until a winless spin with additional sticky wilds up for grabs.
4) Finn and the Swirly Spin | NetEnt
It wouldn’t be a top slots list if we didn’t include at least one leprechaun-themed game! At a time when many people were grown tired of these Leprechaun slots, NetEnt blew new air into the style with Finn and the Swirly Spin. As well as being packed with features, including four types of free spins and four variations of bonuses which, like the clover, are very lucky, the game implemented a new swirly symbols mechanic, which the game takes its name from.
3) Dwarfs Gone Wild | Quickspin
Snow White’s Seven Dwarfs work together on this slot game to ensure that the prettiest of them all is the casino account balance. The Seven Dwarfs certainly aren’t Dopey or Sleepy here, but rather, they are all Wild, with each having its own benefits for you if you manage to line it up on the reels. These work alongside the Golden Minecraft Free Spins Bonus feature, where you fill up a meter by collecting them. Then when free spins are in play, you will be able to make use of the features. Is this one of the fairest deals of them all?
2) Castle Builder II | Rabcat
Usually, we tend to meet sequels with apprehension, but when Castle Builder II dropped, we had no such feelings. This is because the first instalment of the game completely changed the way we saw the potential of slot games forever. As is the case with the first instalment, as well as spinning for prizes you can build your own kingdom of castles on selection of different islands, each with its own special characteristics allowing you to literally carve your own storyline. As well as this, of course, there are some great bonus features to trigger as you play.
1) Jumanji | NetEnt
Maybe it is the nostalgia that made us have to put the Jumanji Slot game at the top of our list, but then again, this would be a disservice to the great designers who conjured up their beautiful slot. It combines features of both a slot and a board game, and as well as spinning the reels, you roll a dice to move around the board and trigger bonuses which are then activated on the reels. Jam-packed with a series of jungle-related bonus features that are nothing like anything you have ever seen before on a slot and a geometric reel formation, this game will really transport you out of your living room and into the wild.
