For this article we’ve taken into account all the variables of a good slot game. In fact, we’re focusing on one specific developer who has built up a great reputation for releasing some of the most groundbreaking slots yet, namely NetEnt. So if you were confused about which slots to try out first, keep reading this 10 best NetEnt games list and become enlightened.
No. 10 – Jack and the Beanstalk
Based on the popular children’s book, Jack and the Beanstalk is one of the more underrated slot games by NetEnt. It comes with an impressive 96.3% RTP percentage and the graphics are second to none. It’s based on a 5 reel, 20 payline system and even though there aren’t many in-game features, it’s got one big bonus game that will knock your socks off. If you’re lucky enough you’ll climb up that beanstalk and bring down with loads cash.
No. 9 – Deal or No Deal: The Banker’s Riches
This is one is specifically for the gameshow lovers out there. The Deal or No Deal slot was inspired by the popular British show. As you can imagine it comes with several bonus features that will keep your attention glued to the screen. It’s got 5 reels and 20 paylines, but more importantly there’s a progressive jackpot just waiting for you to take home. Trust NetEnt to capture the gameshow atmosphere perfectly. This slot will severely test your ability to make difficult decisions.
No. 8 – Gonzo’s Quest
This has to be one of NetEnt’s true gems and it still grabs the attention from big crowds. The Gonzo’s Quest slot introduced the avalanche feature that rocked every gamblers world. But on top of the great animations and features that are packed into the slot, it’s very popular for the frequent payouts. It’s safe to say that Gonzo became a benchmark for every other slot that followed. If you haven’t tried it yet then you’ve been missing out big time.
No. 7 – South Park
Who would’ve thought that any slot developer would dare touch the foul mouth boys from South Park? Just saying it sounds a little freaky, much less build a game around it. But NetEnt took the leap and came up with a very authentic slot. In fact, it was so successful they brought out a sequel. It looks exactly the television show and the features are plentiful. It might not be the highest paying slot out there, it’s definitely among the most popular ones.
No. 6 – Jimi Hendrix
Positions 5 and 6 belong to some music legends, the first being Jimi Hendrix. Created in a “purple haze”, you’ll find the essence of this brilliant musician all over the slot. The soundtrack will have you tapping the spin button and the features will bring you some very big wins. There are 5 reels and 20 paylines, and 2 of the 6 bonus features can be found in the base game. There’s no doubt you’ll enjoy the transforming wilds and of course the re-spins.
No. 5 – Guns and Roses
As much as this is just a kick-ass slot game, it’s somewhat of a tribute to Guns n’ Roses. For many classic rock fans they are the best band to ever hit the stage. Now they’ve been embedded in a fantastic slot with 5 of their most popular songs playing in the background. Welcome to the jungle indeed. It’s based on a 5 reel, 25 fixed payline system and expect to see some unique features, such as the Wild Cross.
No. 4 – Wonky Wabbits
If NetEnt was out to make rabbits look very freaky, they succeeded with the Wonky Wabbits slot. This is one of the more basic foundations where everything happens within the base game. But the graphics are amazing and the whole atmosphere of the slot is freaky fun. The RTP percentage is a comfortable 96.5% and it promises to push your happy mood.
No. 3 – Motorhead
We kept this particular slot away from the rest, because it’s a little more unique. Featured on the well-known British metal band, the Motorhead slot is fresh from the developer. From the get-go you’ll notice NetEnt wanted to shake things up, hence the dark finish and strange reel arrangement. You’ll be happy to know you can play some Motorhead songs throughout the game.
No. 2 – Dead or Alive
It’s time to head back to the Wild West with one of NetEnt’s greatest achievements to date, namely Dead or Alive. Even though the only real feature is the free spin round, the base game is so visually appealing you won’t even notice. There is more than enough to win during the base game, and if you do land those 12 free spins, it just gets better. Only 9 paylines on this slot though, but the RTP percentage stacks up nicely at 96.8%, and the graphics will not disappoint.
No. 1 – Robin Hood: Shifting Riches
The Robin Hood: Shifting Riches slot is a personal favorite, maybe because it’s a little more challenging to unlock the bonus features. Yes we know, it’s never easy unlocking bonus rounds, even if it only requires 3 scatter symbols. Nevertheless, the slot comes with innovation in mind. For example with every winning combination the 5th reel slides down and brings up another set of symbols, increasing your chance of winning. There are several other features to look out for and the maximum jackpot stands at 1000 coins. You’ll also be impressed with the 96.8% RTP percentage, along with atmospheric graphics.
