We recently listed our all around top 5 favorite slots, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they have the most thrilling bonuses. Here instead we list the top 5 slots offering the most exciting bonus features.
What makes a game like Immortal Romance so complete is that, besides having amazing potential in both base game and bonus, it’s so well produced in terms of music and overall presentation. The creators have managed to tell a story from basically just one image repeating over and over. But the fact is that there are relatively boring games with amazing bonuses. Games you simply only play to chase the bonus feature and which therefor will never make it on our toplist of all around best games. But here we have peeled away everything but the bonus to see which ones are really the most exciting ones.
Jack And The Beanstalk (NetEnt)
A true NetEnt classic with great potential, but which honestly hosts a base game so dull it makes you want to chew your own hand off. It really is just one long transportation road in wait for the bonus feature with really not much potential at all. The upside is that the game is well balanced and you can often stay on a plus-minus-zero balance for a while, but the downside is that it usually will take many, many spins to trigger the bonus, why we often end up quick spinning the hell out of this one.
But the bonus on the other hand…oh boy, oh boy. It’s a world filled with potential, chasing keys to unlock the expanding harps. We really, really enjoy this bonus even if it’ll leave you frustrated and disappointed most of the times (which is the nature of playing slots). This bonus has a tendency to keep going for a while and with the walking wilds 10 initial spins can easily turn into double that.
Dead or Alive (NetEnt)
We simply cannot leave Dead or Alive out of this list either. This is the mother of all sticky wilds slots and is such an iconic game that when talking about “wild lines” DoA will be the first game to come to mind.
Sure, it’s frustrating when only three spins in you know it’s once again bound to deny you a wild line, and yes, you do tend to get a bit grumpy when te wilds stack up on the last reel. But still, the fact that this game has such crazy potential makes the heart rate go up a bit just by triggering the bonus.
And belive us, the day you land them goddamn bandits on a golden payline, it’ll feel as great as being embraced by virgin Mary herself on a beautiful summer morning. To sit back and just collect the wins, spin after spin, coming in from a wild line…well, few games can compete with that in our opinion.
Book of Ra (Novomatic)
We are well aware of the fact that Novo slots can be a bit tedious and monotmous with a base game that holds little to no potential. But the feeling of landing three books is fantastic and the wait for the bonus symbol to expose itself adds extra thrill. Expanding symbols, amazing potential and good chance of retriggers makes this bonus super entertaining. Would you be lucky enough to hit 5 Explorers in the bonus you win 5000 times your bet!
If you belong to the group of gamblers who only play with deposit bonuses this game might be out of limits to you since it can be used for bonus abuse. The game doesn’t have a traditional bonus in the sense that you trigger it by landing three scatters. Instead you need to collect rolls with various features that sticks for a limited number of spins. If you are lucky to collect the good combination of rolls things can get really crazy.
To be honest this is quite a typical Microgaming bonus which you probably recognize from a few of their other slots. But in our experience it seems as if it is more likely to hit big on this one in the running wilds feature (Sofia). Of course, we can’t prove it and it’s very likely the odds are not better here than in Jurassic Park, but we have seen so many insane wins on this that it just has to be included in our list.
The bonus is quite entertaining in itself too as the chances of landing wilds increases by every spin which means the bonus keeps getting better and better the close to the end you get.
