We love to see online slots developers build a lasting legacy by creating fantastic franchises that stand the test of time and spawn multiple sequels. 

By creating these revered titles featuring popular recurring characters they're not only building on their own reputation, but they're helping boost the reputation of the best online casinos that choose to feature them in their lobbies.

We wanted to take a look at some of our favourite slot game franchises and the developers behind them.

Rich Wilde series

Developer: Red Tiger Gaming

We've love Pirates' Plenty and we're always keen to shout about new releases in this swashbuckling series!

The Pirates' Plenty series began in February of 2019 with Pirates' Plenty - The Sunken Treasure and immediately had players hooked, filled with mini-games, lucrative bonus symbols and the potential to win 5,000x your initial stake it was obvious that this game was going to be a huge hit. 

People didn't think it could get any better, however seven months later Red Tiger Gaming officially launched a sequel, Pirates' Plenty - Battle for Gold. An even higher maximum payout and features that had been improved upon following the original title have led to this title receiving a high billing on many online casino slot game lobbies.

Vikings series

Developer: Yggdrasil

Easily the most hardcore of the slots on this list, the Vikings series of games from Yggdrasil truly are wild by name and nature. 

The first of the series, Vikings Go Wild is a 5 reel, 25 win line video slot released back in 2015 that sees you join a band of Vikings in their quest to slay a sea monster and get their hands on a treasure chest full of riches. 

As the franchise has grown, Yggdrasil have made some fantastic additions including adding a rage meter, which when filled to the top initiates a free spin mode. 

If you like good looking, fancy video slots then you'll love Vikings Go Berzerk and the visually stunning Vikings Go to Hell

Age of the Gods series

Häufig gestellte Fragen (FAQ)

  • Funktionieren Spielautomaten vollständig zufallsbasiert?

    Ja, der Spielablauf an Automatenspielen ist komplett zufallsbasiert. Jeder Online-Spielautomat, den man in einem seriösen, lizenzierten Online-Casino findet, verwendet eine Zufallszahlengenerator-Software, die garantiert, dass jeder einzelne Dreh der Walzen völlig einzigartig und zufällig abläuft.

  • Gibt es eine Strategie für Online-Spielautomaten?

    Automatenspiele sind im Gegensatz zu manchen anderen Casino-Spielen keine Strategiespiele, es gibt keinen Weg, das System zu schlagen und eine Gewinnformel zu finden. Es zahlt sich allerdings aus, wenn Spieler sich über die wichtigsten Mechaniken eines Spielautomaten wie Features, Ausschüttungsquote (RTP) und Volatilität informieren, bevor sie daran spielen.

  • Sind Spielautomaten manipuliert?

    Nein, Spielautomaten werden nicht manipuliert, weil dies gar nicht nötig ist. Spielautomaten sind Glücksspiele, die auf statistischen Wahrscheinlichkeiten basieren und so angelegt sind, dass sie dem Casino einen Vorteil bieten. Im Laufe von einer Million oder auch nur Tausend Spins wird das Casino basierend auf den Wahrscheinlichkeiten des Spiels (und damit der Ausschüttungsquote) und den sich ergebenden Kombinationen immer einen Gewinn erzielen. Mit weniger Spins kann ein Spieler gewinnen, aber wenn man insgesamt alle Spieler eines Spiels betrachtet, nähert sich das Ergebnis immer weiter der Ausschüttungsquote des Spiels an, die den Gewinn des Casinos bestimmt.

  • Can you win money playing online slots?

    Yes, players can win money playing online slots. It's even plausible that players could trigger a bonus feature (such as free spins) or a progressive jackpot, which sees them significantly boost their bankroll.
