Choosing the Right Slots

With so many slots to choose from, how do you choose the right one to play?

Timothy Olyphant

The world of online slot machine gaming is absolutely thriving, and there are literally thousands of different games out there to choose from. That, of course, is a good thing, but it can also make it quite hard for players to select one to play. Luckily, most slot machines follow the same basic format, where players have to spin the reels to try and match symbols. What can be difficult, though, is working out the ways in which the games differ. Knowing the slight changes in the ways the games work is important when playing the slots. So here are a few suggestions of good machines to play right now, and how to play them.

Mega Moolah

Mega Moolah is widely considered as one of the best slot machines ever, and is available to play at nearly every online casino including Sky Vegas, 32red, and Mobile Slots. This safari-based slot is 5-reels with 25 win lines, and is so popular because it gives players the opportunity to win one of four progressive jackpots, including a huge “Mega Progressive” jackpot. These jackpots are all accumulated from when the last pay-out was made, so they are changing all the time. Players can see what the current jackpots are at the top of the screen.

The progressive jackpot games are randomly triggered but by betting a higher stake, players have a higher chance of winning. Other features in the game include free spins that are activated when scatter symbols appear anywhere on reels three, four, and five. During free spins all wins are tripled. Wild lion symbols double wins when they substitute other symbols.


Tomb Raider - The Secret of the Sword

Based on the hit console game series and films, Tomb Raider - The Secret of the Sword is the follow up to the hugely successful Tomb Raider slot machine. The developers claim it is even more elaborate and exciting than its predecessor. The machine is a five-reel, 30-win line game, and players can play for high or low stakes.

Relics in view on reels three, four, and five wins free spins with rolling reels. During the free spins feature, winning symbols dissolve, causing affected reels to roll down and potentially award additional wins. This can lead to a series of consecutive wins where the multiplier increases each time to a maximum of x5.

To activate the main feature of the game, a passport symbol needs to land on the centre of each reel. When one lands, it stays held until the other symbols required spin into place. During this feature, players can begin their quest for hidden sword fragments but must watch out for booby traps.

The shootout bonus allows players to shoot gold discs to reveal winning values and multipliers of up to x70 the bet.


Hitman is another slot machine based on a hit console game. Like Tomb Raider, the console game was also made into a film, starring Timothy Olyphant. The hitman’s code name is Agent 47, and in the slot game when he appears anywhere on the reels he becomes an expanding wild. It also triggers a cut scene showing the hitman leaving his house. Other symbols also trigger short video clips, such as loading a gun.

This is a five-reel, 25-win line slot that includes symbols like knives, syringes, and sniper rifles, in keeping with the hitman theme. The contract bonus is triggered when the electronic device symbol lands on reels three, four, and five. During this bonus, players choose a target with a range of bonus values. The bonus values are already multiplied by the amount staked. Players then select a weapon that awards a random multiplier.

Other bonuses include the insignia bonus when three insignia symbols land on reels one, two and three. The 18 symbols trigger 18 free spins with a x2 multiplier when they land on reels three, four, or five. The game is available to play at most online casinos.

These are just a few of the hottest games around right now, and as you may have realised, there are only a few small differences between them in terms of the bonuses. Try these or look around to see what else takes your fancy. Just be sure to read the instructions before you get started.
