One of the joys and reasons for the enduring popularity of online slots is the sheer variety out there.
Players can pick and choose a themed slot from anything they are into, ranging from movies, cartoons, franchises, music or more generic themes encompassing genres like fantasy and fairies. Basically, whatever you like best, you’re bound to find a slot to suit you.
Themed online slots are varied and have a lot of different features - some have multipliers, paylines, bonus rounds and progressive slots. They’re all simple to follow and much more immersive than traditional slots, as they can pull you into the world of the theme and increase the enjoyment of playing much more.
Here’s our pick of some of the best themed slots for you to try.
This online slot is based on the phenomenally successful franchise about the killer shark and is famous for its unique bonus round. You basically get to play hide and seek with the shark himself and, if you’re a fan of the films, it’s a brilliantly immersive and fun way to play. You win if you see Jaws himself pop out of the screen!
Batman: The Dark Knight Rises
Released in September 2013, this new installment of the video slots based on Batman is a real winner. Released across Microgaming Casino, it’s an official movie tie in and is the sequel to the original progressive jackpot slot from the Dark Knight franchise. This isn't progressive but gives players an amazing and immersive visual and audio experience. Exciting gameplay and scenes from the movie all combine to make this a brilliant slots experience. The five reel slot gives players up to 243 ways to win on every spin.
This rather beautiful game has been around across Microgaming platforms for a while now and has proved to be enduringly popular. Immortal Romance is from the same guys who created Thunderstruck II and the high quality is obvious. It becomes addictive to play as there are so many different varieties of gameplay and chances to win. You’ll need patience and skill, which only makes the gameplay more enjoyable and, with such a high quality in graphics it’s one of our absolute favourites.
Playboy video slot
A different kind of theme, this online slot isn’t based on a movie but is an extension of the Playboy brand. Aiming to make online slots a little sexier, it’s a fun and graphically accomplished video slot which hasn’t skimped on gameplay and features. With a 1,215,000 coin jackpot available the gameplay is fun and immersive and the graphics, of course, are lovely and visually appealing!
Deck the Halls!
Christmas is nearly here once again and this Christmas based slot is very popular and lots of fun to play, all the while conjuring up a traditional Christmas atmosphere that makes it a real pleasure. It’s not a brand new game, but more an old favourite from Microgaming and is now
available with multiplayer slot tournaments. The highest paying symbol in the game is, naturally, Santa himself and this five reel, 30 payline video slot guarantees to warm the cockles of even the most stalwart Grinch this Christmas!
