Five International Slots
When it comes to themed slots, there are some that appeal because of gameplay, others that appeal because of graphics and those that appeal due to the stereotypes that can be expected from amazingly themed slot games. Now, just because Slot Boss is a site with UK roots, doesn’t mean that we don’t appreciate the slots that come to us from every corner of the world. So without further ado, we’d like to give you the opportunity to travel the world in five online slots.
Europe - Rainbow Riches
Our trip to Europe takes us across the sea to Ireland. There are few slot themes with as much success as Irish slots, and it’s going to take an incredible online casino game to knock Rainbow Riches off its perch at the very top of the Slot Boss rankings.
About Rainbow Riches
Complete with the stereotypical emerald hills of Ireland, “lucky leprechauns” and majestic rainbows, this slot is relatable to most players due to it’s easy to understand gameplay and simplistic design. However, if we had to sum up this slot in one word, it would be smooth. The slot runs so smoothly and has regular wins due to its volatility to the point where there have been nine sequels to this game, none of which have matched the success of the original, which is surprising because we believe that sequels such as Rainbow Riches Megaways and Rainbow Riches Free Spins are just as good, if not better than the original.
Upon the reels, you will find high paying symbols in the form of Wilds and the Rainbow Riches symbol. Lower paying symbols come in the form of your standard online casino symbols A, K, Q, J and 10.Keep an eye out for the bonus symbols on the reels as three or more of these will enter you into a related bonus game. The ‘lucky leprechaun’ of the casino can take you down his road to riches or award you one of his precious pots of gold.
Our Favourite Feature
Rainbow Riches has three dynamic features for our players to enjoy, but our favourite is the special Road to Riches feature which is activated when players land three Road to Riches symbols on the reels. When you enter the game players will be greeted by a long and windy road with a number of payouts and collect symbols on it. Here you can press the spin button to determine how many steps will be taken. The further down the road you travel, the higher the chances of bigger payouts. Watch out for the collect spots though as landing on one of these will end the round and award the relative payout.
Asia - 88 Fortunes Megaways
We travel across Europe and into the beautiful lands of Asia here. Now, there are a tonne of fantastic Asian-inspired slots, but arguably there are none better 88 Fortunes Megaways which takes the original 88 Fortunes slot, removes some older features and adds an absolutely brilliant Megaways system which actually varies in RTP (Return to Player) depending on how many Gold symbols players decide to use. In terms of design, the slot is beautifully made, simplistic but unique, stereotypical but elegant and fully deserves its place as our favourite Asian-inspired slot.
In regards to bonus features, there are three different bonus features for our players to take in, the two players can win by spinning are the Picker and Free Spins features but one that might go undercover is the Golden Symbols feature which allows players to actually choose whether higher-paying symbols have even higher payouts.
Our Favourite Feature
Our favourite feature in 88 Fortunes Megaways is the Picker feature which becomes active after one or more Fu Bat symbol lands on the reels. Coins are added to the coin pot and once a coin has been added to the pot, players may activate the Picker Feature every other occasion the symbol lands on the reels. Once the feature begins, 15 coins will appear on the screen, each with a different number of Free Spins and a multiplier of x6, x4 and x2 available. This means that players could begin with 10 Free Spins with a 2x multiplier or 15 Free Spins with a 6x multiplier.
Africa - Book Of Dead
Next up we move down the World Map to the Pyramids of Egypt where the famous explorer Riche Wilde aims to find the treasures hidden in the depths of the Giza pyramids. We recommend all players keep an eye out for the Book of Dead symbol appearing on the reels as this will activate the Free Spins round that has made this slot such a success. The brilliant gameplay and crisp graphics allow players to emerge themselves in the uniqueness of this Egyptian slot. There is also the chance to win huge prizes of up to 5,000x their stake, which makes this an ideal slot for both beginners and the most experienced of players.
Our favourite feature
Our favourite feature from the Book of Dead slot is the Free Spins round that can be activated by landing three or more Book of Dead symbols on the reels at any time. Once completed, players will win a minimum of 10 free spins, and when the round begins a random symbol will expand to fill the reels offering players a larger opportunity to win. These respins can also be re-triggered for players to win up to 20 Free Spins.
North & South America - Gun Slinger: Fully Loaded
Yeehaw! Our escapades take us to America and back to the Wild Wild West, as our rapid-fire Gun Slingers transport you to the world of outlaws where criminals shoot their way out of rampaging slots action. The classic slot reels feature 10 pay lines and top prizes that can range from 750x to 2000x the players’ stake. This slot combines glossy visuals with a fantastic soundtrack which helps transport players straight into the streets of Dodge. This is a slot we think works brilliantly for experienced players as well as beginners and includes Free Spins and Expanding Wilds feature that keeps the reels busy.
Our Favourite Feature
Our favourite feature in the Gun Slinger: Fully Loaded slot is the Free Spins bonus round that can be activated once players have landed three or more scatter symbols on the reels, after this, players will receive 10 free spins. Each spin has the potential to add expanding wilds and can be re-triggered. Once the round begins players will be given a multiplier for their Free Spins and if they are re-triggered players will be asked to choose a symbol for 10 more free spins.
Oceania - Aussie Adventure
We’ve packed our bags and travelled down under to experience the beauty of Australia, and this fantastic slot from Realistic Gaming comes equipped with all the graphics required to make an adventure for the senses, and that’s before we even get started on the soothing soundtrack and gripping gameplay. The Free Spins feature is once again the major player in this slot, but the Jackpots of up to 250x are definitely worth taking a look.
Favourite Bonus Feature
Once again, our favourite bonus feature from this slot is the Free Spins symbol which awards players with 15 free spins that are flipped and reversed - Aussie style! These Free Spins are stacked to the brim with multipliers or Jackpot symbols. These can also be re-triggered for up 15 extra Free Spins! But remember to take your luggage as the Silver luggage tags on the reels give out wins of either 50x, 100x or 250x Jackpots!
