Online slots have proved to be top money-spinners for the gambling industry and the success of these games continues. It all kicked off in 1996 with the introduction of the very first virtual video slot. This led to huge demand by casinos and punters alike and now the industry creates billions of pounds of revenue.
Whilst the obvious winners here are the gambling industry itself and slot developers, the demand for slots has meant that many creative individuals have been employed by the industry. Graphic designers, animators and artists have all managed to find a well-paid outlet for their creative abilities. With so many creative people, all under one roof, the result has been the creation of some top rated free play slot games that stand out from a choice of thousands.
Legacy Of Dead Slot
Play N Go release Legacy Of Dead, is a follow up to the classic Book Of Dead slot. That slot is a hard act to follow and despite this, Legacy Of Dead manages to be another worthy entry in the series of Ancient Egyptian-themed slots. Like its predecessor, it is played out on 5-reels and has 10 active paylines. Again, the base game is void of any special features but the bonus round has a new trick up its sleeve. In Book Of Dead one symbol is picked as the expanding symbol in the bonus round and this symbols remains no matter how many times the bonus is retriggered. In Legacy Of Dead, every time a bonus is retriggered, a new symbol is chosen to expand along with the originally chosen one.
Immortal Romance Slot
Microgaming are behind this classic vampire themed slot. It is not clear why this slot has such longevity, but the production values right down to the music, are top notch here. It has characters that each serve a function in the slot narrative and there are a number of free spins packages that need to be unlocked and this is done if you are lucky enough to regularly hit a bonus. The game is famous for its Wild Desire random feature that can be triggered on any spin. Once activated, reels are turned completely wild.
Thunderstruck II Slot
Microgaming strikes again with another top entry in the shape of Thunderstruck II. It is actually similar to Immortal Romance in that there are various free spins packages that need to be unlocked by regularly hitting the bonus. Instead of vampires the stars are characters from Norse mythology such as Thor and his hammer is the bonus symbol. There is a similar random feature like Wild Desire, but here it is in the shape of a Wild Storm instead.
1429 Uncharted Seas Slot
1429 gets the nod as a top rated slot simply because it boasts a high RTP score. Even without a generous Return To Player Percentage, it would still make for an eerie and atmospheric gaming experience. The action is played out on 5-reels and there are 20 paylines.
