We know that slot reviews are one of the main reasons why people visit this site as we do our best to bring you prompt, fair and unbiased assessments of how new and older release slots perform. Some games of course we think are absolute world beaters, and others we think are best left well alone.
Of course, not everyone will agree with how we review the slots and that is absolutely fair and right. Slot gaming is a personal thing and what one player loves in a game another will hate. Lower variance slot fans love that they can win frequently on spins, even if it is smaller amounts, whereas higher variance fans prefer slots that pay out less often, but which occasionally can see you land a sizeable win.
Over the years we've reviewed hundreds of slots from a wide range of companies and over the next few weeks, we are going to review the top slots from some of the companies we have looked at a number of slot games for, starting with this review of the games we have reviewed so far for Realtime Gaming.
We've certainly racked up reviewing a fair few Realtime Gaming slots over the years, but which have been the best of the best? Take a look below to find out -
Realtime Gaming - Top Ten
1= Pay Dirt - 86/100
There are two slots at the top of this chart each scoring a massive 86% in our ratings and the first of these is the Gold Mining-themed Pay Dirt slot which features 25 pay lines and a trio of fantastic features to trigger throughout the game. Add to that a randomly triggered progressive jackpot bonus, superb presentation and excellent sound and it is easy to see why this is not just a favorite slot of ours, but one of Realtime Gaming's most popular slots.
1= Jumping Beans - 86/100
Who says old-style retro slots can't be incredible fun to play? Not us for sure as a well-executed slot can tick all the right boxes and that is what happens when you play the fabulous Jumping Beans slot. With just 5-lines in play across the three reels, you don't expect much when the game loads up but the slot is packed full of goodies and bonuses like a pinata. There's even Free Spins as well as Auto Nudge and two randomly awarded progressive jackpot bonuses. Jumping Beans is proof you don't need five reels and a modern outlook to produce a fantastic slot game.
Christmas is a very popular theme for slots and there are always a snowfall of new releases over the Christmas period on the theme, but finding a very good Christmas slot is not particularly easy which is why the Swindle All The Way slot is one you must play. The slot has a "Home Alone" feel to it with two thieves set to steal the presents from the boys and girls. Swindle All The Way slot is a 5-reel game with 25 lines in play and is packed with some great bonus features including some massive multiplier wins and a fabulous bonus game prior to Free Spins which sets the number of Free Spins you have and the multiplier that will be applied to the wins in the bonus round.
Pirates are known for all the booty and treasure that they collect over the years and in terms of slot games, and Pirate Isle slot has collected its own selection of bonuses and features which makes this slightly older slot one well worth loading up for some spins every now and then. Join Captain Redbeard and his crew as they venture across the seas, plundering treasure, looting ships and locating treasure maps and you can share in the Captain's plundered wealth.
Realtime Gaming have produced some spectacular looking slots over the years but perhaps none is quite so good to look at as the Nova 7's slot. Based on a space theme, Realtime Gaming really produced a fabulous looking, and sounding, slot here on this 5-reel, 25 pay line slot. What really makes the game exciting however are the four different Wild bonuses and the fact that you can use these bonuses to earn a massive 38,073x your line bet as the top prize. Add to that a fantastic Free Spins bonus and a higher than usual volatility and it is easy to see why Nova 7's remains a popular choice, especially for fans of higher variance slots.
Originality is difficult to come across in slot games nowadays as almost every topic has been covered, but you can take a well-covered topic and still produce an original game as Realtime Gaming did here with their Christmas-themed The Naughty List slot. This Santa is a rather cheeky chappy, sharing his sleigh with two busty beauties, Brigitte and Rhonda who would definitely be high up on any naughty list. There's a couple of progressives to win, plus a host of features on this innovative Christmas themed slot that ticked all the right boxes.
A slot that has an Oriental theme has to stand out from the crowd as there are so many games of this type on the market today. The same goes for slots involving dragons. So, combining the two may be a good idea and Realtime Gaming did that superbly with their Dragon Orb slot. The Orbs are the Wild symbols in the game, and they are Expanding Wilds, appearing on the middle three reels and guaranteeing you a free re-spin when you land one. Add to that a couple of progressive jackpots and the biggest bonus of all, the ability to win both ways across the reels, and you have a very original take on a genre that has lots of options.
The sequel to the original Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling-themed slot built on the fantastic game-play of the first to offer an even better experience for slot fans in the Lucha Libre II slot. A fantastically colorful presentation and dynamic sound means that this is a slot that captures the imagination and the clever use of symbols (not a playing card symbol in sight) makes the game play as fun as it looks. The slot is packed too with innovative bonuses, including the Time to Rumble and Fist of Fury features that make it a delight to play.
Admittedly, the title of this slot is a little misleading, you aren't really fishing in this game, just taking pictures of the sea creatures and while a fair few reviewers didn't really rate this game, we found this to be a rather enjoyable game to play. The presentation of the Scuba Fishing slot is superb and its low volatility made it a great choice for lower stakes players. The slot also has a fabulous Free Spins bonus game and its Wild Scatter, the Great White Shark, isn't nearly as fearsome as its reputation has you believe.
You have to be careful to ensure you play the correct Asgard slot as there are a number of games with the same name from different providers, but the Realtime Gaming version is a 243-ways to win slot that features four Norse gods, Thor, Loki, Odin and Freya. A fabulous soundtrack really helps create the right atmosphere for the game and it is a game that is suitable for all with spins from 0.30 up to 300.00. The game is based heavily on Microgaming's Thunderstruck II slot, with unlockable Free Spins game the more you trigger them and while it doesn't quite reach the heights of that game, this is still a hugely enjoyable slot in its own right and they always say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
With regular releases from Realtime Gaming every month, I don't think it will be too long before this top ten changes and at some point in the future we will no doubt revisit the top ten and compare how this list looks with the games to come from this popular slots company.
