It is not easy to make a ranking of online slot machines. After all there are hundreds of pokies and when you want to describe them you have to face an enormous job. So, what we did for you is making a selection of great online slot machines of which we think that they belong to the best what is offered till today. We realize that it is a matter of taste, but on this page we will give you the arguments why we chose them as the best online slot machines, at least close to that qualification. We will do that by sorting out a top five out of the games we described so far. This is the complete list of our best online slot machines:
Jack and the Beanstalk Slot Machine
Robin Hood Slot Machine
Scarface Slot Machine
Starburst Slot Machine
Jack Hammer Slot Machine
Devils Delight Slot Machine
Blood Suckers Slot Machine
So that makes fourteen best online slot machines and now we have to make a selection of five slots that are the absolute best in our opinion. It is not a matter of science so we need some tools to create an objective benchmark. What is not of any importance is the number of bet lines, bet levels and the way you can vary your bet by changing the value of the coins. With some exceptions here and there, they all have the same profile. We better have a look at the lay-out, the quality and originality of the graphics, creativity within in the game and of course the special features. We have a number of games without a real bonus game. We think that in this case there has to be compensation to be part of the five best online slot machines. When for example the free spins mode is very attractive, or the graphics are very special. Robin Hood is an example of a game that is underperforming when it comes to that. It has no bonusgame and the graphics are nice, but we have the idea that more could have been done with the story of Robin Hood to make an excellent game. So, this one is out of competition. Alien robots is a great idea, but the graphics are a bit poor en there is no bonus game either. No reason to let them compete in the race for the best online slot machines. Piggy riches is a lovely ‘in between game’ which means it is not a specifically great game, but nice to fill some gaps in your schedule. But without any form of a bonus game in no way to be listed as one of the best online slot machines. Starburst has no bonus game either but in this game we experience a great novelty because winning combinations can be made not only from the leftmost on the screen, but also from the rightmost. So is Gonzo’s Quest also devoid of a bonus game, but the game is original for the use of avalanches instead of spinning the reels and the graphics are also great. But the absence of a bonus game in both Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest is enough reason for us to exclude them from a top five list of best online slot machines.
We have described two games with progressive jackpots and such games are always very popular. For many of you it will be enough to put them on top of our list, but we think otherwise and we can explain that. The chance that you will ever win a progressive jackpot is very small and when we look at these games without the jackpot in mind, we can only conclude that there are far better games. None of the two has a bonus game and that’s why they are out of the best online slot machines competition. When you like progressive jackpots however, we can nothing but highly recommend them! With seven games left now, we have to decide why two of them have to be pushed of the cliff. Although we love the graphics in Ghost Pirates, we miss a bonus game here as well, whereas it would have been easily realized. The theme is very much offering enough inspiration for that. Exit Ghost Pirates, we don’t believe in ghosts anyway. The only game without a bonus game that’s left now is Jack Hammer. We regard this game as one of the best online slot machines for its fantastic graphics and the expended lay-out with five instead of three reals. The free spins game in this one is excellent but not enough to compensate the missing link: a nice bonus game.
So after all, we have five pokies left as the five best online slot machines and they all have a bonus game, as well as a wild and free spins. The bonus game in Jack and the Beanstalk however is a semi bonus game. It is in fact part of the free spins mode and not a real bonus game in the usual meaning of the word. We put therefore this one on number five on our list of best online slot machines, also inspired by the fairy tale itself. Blood Suckers ranks to place four. It has great graphics, but not all of them are related to the theme and that’s a minus in our judgment. Boom Brothers has great graphics and a very original bonus game and is therefore listed on place three. The runner up of our modest election is Devils Delight. The graphics are excellent, the bonus game is attractive and the Soul-O-Meter is a great invention, also suitable for missioners. You will conclude now that Scarface is our favorite in the best online slot machines election. A weak spot is the use of five card symbols, but the features are so great that we can put this remark aside and concentrate on what is really happening. This game has the best action, sometimes like a real video game and there is never a dull moment in it. Scarface is our number one among the best online slot machines.
