OK, it's that time of year again! We need your TOP 5 slots of 2018!
The slots were released from 1 Dec. 2017 - 30 Nov. 2018 as the poll is done in December.

The Winner in 2016 was Novomatic's Play'n Go's Book Of Dead
The winner in 2017 was Big Time Gaming's Bonanza.


Like me you may be surprised that some of the games you think you've 'been playing for ages' only went live in the last 12 months!

OK, the voting is a simple reply on this thread and will close Sunday 22 December so you've got over 2 weeks to choose.

The list of slots in the last 12 months is staggering when you see them together, even more so when you consider that this list is only a fraction of all games released in that time as it only has the most-used brands we have amongst the CM readership. This year I have grouped them into developers! Please forgive the unwieldy and long list but I have tried to collate as near as dammit all slots you're likely to have seen.

The system is the same as before: you pick FIVE slots from the list in the post below and rate them in order of preference as your top 5 of the year.

On Sunday 22 Dec. I will collate all the results and name the winner, second etc. in a table plus overall developer scores, slot that was most voters' favourite (it's possible for it not to win on overall points).

There is a second task: You should also nominate ONE slot from the list below too for the TOSSER 2018 Award - (The Overwhelmingly Shittiest Slot Ever Released)


The scoring is the same; your first choice gets 5 points, down to 1 point for your fifth choice. So please people, I need replies like this, no qualification necessary, just a simple post, for example:

My Top 5:

1. Cleopatra
2. Thunderstruck
3. Da Vinci Diamonds
4. Spring Break
5. Alaskan Fishing

TOSSER - A*t & D*c's Saturday Night Takeaway


Thanks people!

This year was clearly Blueprint's and Push Gaming's "Megaways year". I also liked the new Red Tiger slots. This year wasn't best year for the Big Time Gaming IMHO. Extra Chilli was ok but not great (same thing with WWTBAM).

These five decisions were quite easy for me:

1. Blueprint - Napoleon Rise Of An Empire
2. Blueprint - Genie Jackpots Megaways
3. Push Gaming - Jammin' Jars
4. Red Tiger - Laser Fruit
5. Red Tiger - Dragon's Fire (not on the list)

EDIT. TOSSER: Peking Luck and Da Vinci's Treasure. Simply reason; could have been great slots with good big win potential but both were disappointments for me. Didn't even get 100 x bet win (lots of free spins played).

OK, mine:

1. Peking Luck
2. 3888 Ways Of The Dragon
3. Totem Lightning Power Reels
4. Napoleon Rise Of An Empire
5. Baron Samedi

TOSSER - Kronos Unleashed: This game is a crashing disappointment and how NOT to make a multi-line slot.

Yeah, I had this feeling Dave would vote Napoleon in as his first pick. :laugh:

I also anticipated Blueprint Gaming would be prominent. :thumbsup:

P.S. samikk - your 'TOSSER' (worst release) selection?

My second biggest ever online win @dunover it has to be my slot of the year for that! As for Sami please do not compare John Hunter to Peking Luck the two games are nothing alike. At least when Peking Luck bonuses it is always free spins, Whereas John Hunter can piss off with it's pick bonus and Rainbow Riches wheel garbage. Ruined what could have been a fantastic game! :mad:

2. Napoleon Rise Of An Empire (Blueprint)
3. Peking Luck (Pragmatic)
4. Legacy Of Egypt (Play n Go)

I just don't like these new Pragmatic slots and in my opinion both pays crap. High variance and big potential but I think we haven't seen too many mega wins (many thousand x bet). I don't like bonus picks either and I do agree that Peking Luck is better in that respect. Well, maybe my mind will change if I get one bigger win on Peking Luck one day.

That's just how high variance works funny thing is I've won bigger on John Hunter than on Peking luck but the times since then..I have had progressive spins once! It's too rare for something that will hardly ever pay big. Peking Luck seems to be easier to bonus and I hope it produces for you eventually. Try playing it minimum bet it should give an ok amount of play time. :)

5 really different but cool slots that I enjoy playing.
Napoleon has insane potential and does pay them too!!!
No 112000 Megaways needed to achieve 3000x wins.

No BTG for Tosser :D as there are even worse slots in the world! ;)
Madame Destiny is the worst LLC clone ever seen on this planet.

Why is Poke the guy not on the list?

was it retired already? :oops: that would be shocking.

edit: it gets easier every year. i used to skip netent and wms part of new slots. now i can freely skip Netent, Igt, MG, WMS and novos alltogether :p

so my top five... just top 5 in no particular order

Da Vincis Treasure - pragmatic
Tiki Tumble - umm those guys that made jammin too
Wild Heist At Peacock Manor - thunderkick
Street Magic - png
Primal Megaways - blueprint

I would add
Legacy Of Egypt from png but its literally 100% copy of monte, so might as well nominate monte while we are at it.

i dint realize how many of those slots i actually play quite often, i didnt even get to add Flaming Fox to my top five and my first set of free spins paid around 1000x if i remember well :p Despite netent mg and the rest of old developers not doing much (as usual), its good to see new...ish studios are releasing actually good slots :=)

Yes Napoleon proves to be a slot that actually dishes out some insane wins.
My best so far was a 900x but I have seen screens for more than 3000x.
And this slot does not look like much when you open it a first but this is a slot with serious potential. Even 2 or 3 wilds with a mediocre symbol can pay 100x + easy when the wilds are lined up correctly.

I love it too and is also in my top 5.

A gem within the Blueprint portfolio.

My top 5.

1. Buffalo Rising - Blueprint.
2. The Goonies - Blueprint.
3. Lost Relics - Net Ent
4. WWTBAM - BTG
5. Genie Jackpot - Blueprint

Tosser has to go to the original Ancient Egypt.
Reason is that when you can take ages to get 3 scatters, you can pick the 1x chest.
I am glad they brought the classic version out.
