There are tonnes of casino card games on Slot Boss which more than justifies our claim of being one of the very best in the UK Online Casino market. To determine the four most common themes on our site, we have divided games up into 17 different themes covering everything from Classical Slots to Scientific Slots. To make it onto this list a category is required to have 40 or more games that fit the theme. Surprisingly, that means that a category needs a little over 9% of online slots to make it into our top four themes, which definitely demonstrates the fantastic variety of gameplay available on Slot Boss that you can find in our slots game tab.

Game themes were ranked by their importance to the game itself, for example, Scudamore’s Super Stakes technically fits into both Sports and Animal categories due to the link with Horse Racing. However, the game itself has a primary theme of Sports, meaning that It would not be counted in the Animal slots category. Our live casino features have not been included in this analysis, however, we implore you to check them out if you are looking for an authentic live casino experience. But more importantly, back to the reason we are all here, without further ado, let us introduce you to the four most common slot themes on Slot Boss.

Entertainment Slots (Music, TV & Film)

Coming in just outside the podium places are our entertainment themed slots. When calculating this category we originally just selected Film & TV, however, one aspect that surprised the Boss was the extent of music based slot games on the website. This meant that instead of being placed in our other slots section, we combined them into an entertainment theme, which is ultimately why a cult favourite is not in our top four. You can find out which in the honourable mentions section below but before you do that, let us introduce you to some of the very best Entertainment slots.

Our most recent Entertainment Slot was Beavis and Butthead from Blueprint Gaming, who brilliantly captured the hilarity of Mike Judges 90’s classic and converted it into a hit slot game. It is no surprise that Entertainment themed slots are such an online success when players can experience TV programmes, films and even their favourite music as a hit slot game. This often brings a nostalgia factor to the slot and adds even more enjoyment to the slot.

Our two most popular jackpot slots both come under the Entertainment theme, with the classic love story of Romeo and Juliet being our number one game and the fantastic Top Cat coming in just behind at number two. The two might have the same jackpot feature but they are in-fact two fantastically different games with each containing a variety of fantastic features that the other doesn’t. This means it is definitely worth checking out both game pages to see which game has the features best suited to your gaming experience. One particular stand out from the Top Cat game is its gamble feature, which allows players to either collect their winnings or gamble them with the potential of winning more or losing their winnings. Meanwhile, in Romeo and Juliet, the mystery wheel feature which adds even more intrigue to the multiplier section. This theme is particularly strong in our slingo casino games.

Classical Slots

Many of our players commend Slot Boss on providing a classic UK slot machine experience that is as lifelike as the genuine Vegas experience, which makes a lot of sense when viewing this list. In order to understand “Classical” as a category, we had to define what a Classical slot is, so we decided to judge this as slots primarily based around a standard fruit machine, symbols and layout alike. Our favourite game that has a classic style is Reel King, which is without a doubt the most authentic Vegas style online slot machine you will find on Slot Boss. It is virtually identical to a classic slot but has the addition of flaming 7s to really spice up the action. Meanwhile, if you are looking for a game that follows the typical conventions of a classic slot but contains an alternative twist, we recommend you try out Cash Stax which maintains the classic format but adds additional symbols such as golden rings and scatter symbols to the mix.

When it comes to the statistics behind the slot, Classical slots take up 10.57% of our games which means there are currently 46 renditions of the classic Vegas-style slots for customers to sink their teeth into and pick exactly what they prefer.

Animal Slots

To some players, this will come as a major surprise and to others, it would have been expected. We at Slot Boss believe that our Animal themed slot games are some of our best and almost criminally underrated. Wolf Gold are just two of the many great games that have come to Slot Boss this year and although the Boss prefers action-packed gaming, he appreciates how games with an animal theme can be something our loyal players adore.

Games with Animals as their primary character are 12% of our new online slots library and in all honesty, it could have been so much more. Our library is packed with games that have an Animal as a primary character but is more suited to a different theme such as Film and TV or Fantasy Slots.

Honourable Mentions

There are a number of slot themes that fit perfectly in with our online casino site, here are four honourable mentions that players may have expected to make it into our top four.

Irish Slots

When it comes to themed slots, it feels like the luck of the Irish is a common theme. However, surprisingly, only 5.5% of our slot games contain an Irish theme. This still equates to 24 slots on the site, which is still a considerable amount of slots to be created and with Rainbow Riches having eight sequels to the original classic game, it almost comes as a surprise that the Irish theme only takes up a small section of our online slot games.

Gem Slots

When Bejeweled hit our screens in 2001 and changed the gaming industry, little did we know Gem games would have such a major influence on the online casino world. These kind of games are in some people’s opinion the reason why a casino like Slot Boss promotes offers such as £10 free, no deposit bets. The quality of gaming has increased which has meant that the quality of our casino bonus has had to increase with it. However, that being said, Gem slots only take up a mere 6.66% of our slots selection but also hold the top spot in the most played theme games with the NetEnt classic - Starburst slot. If you are not yet familiar with Starburst we recommend you check out the interstellar gem themed slot and see exactly what all the hype is about. If you have already checked out Starburst and feel like trying out something a little different, we suggest travelling back to the Renaissance era and taking a look at Da Vinci Diamonds by IGT.

Be sure to check out our casino blog for our review of the popular Starburst Review.

Egyptian Slots

If you clicked on this article and did not expect Egyptian Slots to make the top four of this list then we don’t believe you. Every UK betting Casino site has tonnes of Egyptian slots which are adored by players and our writers. Cleopatra slot is arguably the favoured Egyptian slot amongst our players but this is no surprise as Egyptian slots are particularly high in quality. Book Of Dead and Legacy Of Egypt are two more fantastic Egyptian themed games that Slot Boss are very happy to have on our site. When it comes to statistics, however, online Egyptian slots take up merely 6.4% of our slots and we expect to see plenty more of the theme on our screens very soon. We often find that Egyptian slots contain some of the best casino bonuses on Slot Boss.

Historical Slots

Our last honourable mention is a blast from the past, where our fantastic gaming providers have divulged into the past to create a slot which provides a representation of some of the biggest moments in Earth’s history. Our newest historical feature slot is The Greatest Train Robbery by Red Tiger, which takes players back in time to the days when cowboys ruled the roost, which undoubtedly makes for a highly intriguing slot theme.

Jungle Slots

Top Four Jungle Slots

The rainforest that is Jungle slots is teeming with all kinds of exotic wildlife, treasures of lost civilizations are awaiting players in some of Slot Boss' top Jungle Slots. These slots tend to have some of the most exotic graphics, peaceful soundtracks and exclusive bonus features. There isn't much more to say about these slots that isn't fairly self-explanatory, so here are our top four Jungle Slots!

1. - Jungle Jackpots

Jungle Jackpots involves teaming up with Mowgli for the chance to win. Inspired by the classic Rudyard Kipling novel 'The Jungle Book', the game features favourite characters from the story joining the adventure!

2. - Amazon Queen

Deep in the jungle, the Amazon Queen is on the hunt for treasure. Join this warrior as she takes on everything the jungle can throw at her!

3. - Gonzo's Quest

Gonzo's quest is an innovative slot game from NetEnt that combines incredibly vibrant graphics with stand out in-play features. One such feature is Avalanche Reels in which winning symbols first light up then disappear into the ground, making space for a second set of reels to take their place, maximising your chances of winning!

4. - Prowling Panther

Graceful, powerful and fascinating; the big cat is on the prowl in the beautiful Prowling Panther set deep in the tropical rainforest. Go back to nature and see if you can win big!

With stunning graphics, animations and sound effects, playing Prowling Panther really gives you a sense of being in the jungle. This high variance slot features an incredible free spin bonus which can give you up to 240 free spins!

Finally, our top slot theme comes in the Fantasy department with 14% of our game library:

Fantasy Slots

The world of fantasy gaming is bigger than ever with massive companies pushing the boundaries of graphics and gaming with new releases. Fantasy Slots are in our opinion a category that may cater to a smaller audience but have more potential than any other categories on this list. Why? In the fantasy world, it’s all about imagination, which means the possibilities are endless. However, it’s the imagination that goes into these games that make them stand out amongst the Slot Boss community.

We also find that most players make the most of our selection of promotions in Fantasy Slots, we believe this is because some of our community haven’t yet jumped into the world of Fantasy and embraced their inner geek. If we had to recommend one of our best Fantasy games, we firstly would take hours to decide and secondly send you to Genie Jackpots. In this slot game, the Genie is out of the bottle and could be ready to grant players the Progressive Jackpot which as we write this stands at £168,880.22. Another top game we’d like to introduce you to is Dragon’s Wild, where players are transported to a world of knights and mythical creatures engaging in a dramatic battle for the greatest treasure in the land. Dragon Wild’s many bonus features include the mysterious bonus wheel and the Casino Free Spins multipliers which make this online casino slot one of the greatest in Slot Boss history.
