Apologies to Dunover..

This player is boycotting the 2018 awards due to the overall dire state of releases this year - lottery slots, RTPs drifting down, shit HTML5 conversions, crap bonus frequency, total removal of autospin (in some cases), raping games aplenty. It's not been great. Someone get me a time machine back to 2013...

That said, please let me be the sole weirdo in the blue anorak, stood outside with a big placard and a flask of weak tea - it is NOT my intention to try and derail the awards process in any way, or to start a trend here - ok? :)
No worries - entry is not compulsory, spoiled ballot papers accepted. :thumbsup:

I am sure that you noticed before my intervention :)
I never had Reactoonz on the list in the first place!
No, I didn't notice he had put a void game in until you and Goatie pointed it out - hence why I quoted you when I said I'd disregard it.:confused:

Dont have a top slot list cause they took away all my slots that I like so I dont have anything positive to say.

But worst slot is WWTBAM. I think they tried to make this slot for streamers to interact with their viewers. The problem is you cant make something so repetitive because it didnt take long at all to have almost entire twitch thinking this game is awful. I mean seriously, chat is going to witness how every single bonus is like 10x and the base game just eats you away every bloody time.

I get the idea they had for it - just terribly put together. I think a lot of the rtp is in the 117k ways in the bonus because getting even 100x-200x on this slot is mega rare and has to be about 20 times harder to get on this slot compared to any others.

Boy oh boy what an absolute stinker.

My nominations for best slots of the year

1. Legacy Of Egypt. I always feel that I am just one spin away from hitting the bonus round and I get a buzz of anticipation when it does. This slot can pay too.

2. Napoleon Rise Of An Empire.

3. Wild Heist At Peacock Manor - despite never seeing anyone get that golden ticket

4. Donuts

5. Extra Chilli

Worst? Too many to mention

ive had golden card in 3 consecutive free spins features. I really think it was tempered with, because now you get it much more often but it doesnt guarantee you big win at all (biggest pay from those features with golden card was around 120x).

Thats one thing i hate about thunderkick slots. Their version changes. Ive seen so many of their slot play and pay well on release, just to have it changed to completely different game, some 84 updates later (which trace said is very expensive thing to do). As soon as i see version 2.xx on their slots, i instantly close it now.

It was hard to find 5 games but here are my choices, Blueprint Megaways get my vote, also their new Vikings Unleashed which isn't on the list. Much prefer these to the original BTG ones.

1. Blueprint - Buffalo Rising Megaways
2. Blueprint - Diamond Mine Megaways
3. Play n Go - Rise Of Olympus
4. Red Tiger - Totem Lightning Power Reels
5. Yggdrasil - Baron Samedi

Tosser - Play n Go - Hugo Goal (so tedious)

Tricky one but this would be mine:

1. Buffalo Rising Megaways
2. Napoleon
3. Jammin' Jars
4. Wolf Gold
5. Wild Heist

Tosser - Book Of Gods. The book just annoys the hell out of me turning every spin.

1. Genie Jackpots Megaways
2. Jamming Jars

5. Vikings

Tosser: Book of Gods. Massive misstep from BTG in my opinion even though I love their games.

Worst game this year is Donauts like the idee but it dosnt pay


The fact that donuts is appearing in so many top 5's would suggest you just been unlucky so far on it..... for me its far from worst slot this year! lol

These are all old games, the idea is to pick new games released for 2018, of which there is a list at the start of the thread! Thanks.

I've noticed quite a few people have picked Book of Dead, but hasn't that been out a couple of years now?
Yes, Novomatic's Play'n Go's book of dead was the inaugural winner back in 2016. If people don't use the list I'll just discard the invalid choices, but to be fair very few have included any ineligible games.

Here are my choices:

1. Lakes Five (ELK)
2. Extra Chilli (BTG)
3. Diamond Mine (Blueprint)
4. Legacy of Egypt (PnG)
5. Hotline (NetEnt)

As for the Tosser slot it has to be: Jingle Spins (NetEnt)

I have to go purely on what I have played. There's probably about two dozen games on that list that would have had a chance of making my Top 5, had I even tried them just once (Afterlife Inferno, Book of Ra Magic and Legacy of Egypt being among them).

My Top 5

1. Genie Jackpots Megaways (Blueprint)
2. Napoleon (Blueprint)
3. Laser Fruit (Red Tiger)
4. Eastern Emeralds (Quickspin)
5. Wild Heist at Peacock Manor (Thunderkick)

Just missing out - Jammin Jars and Spinal Tap

TOSSER - Poke The Guy. I've never played it, but it just looks so wrong on so many levels.

Don`t agree with opinons about WWTBAM.:) I didn`t hit 1000x plus, but that is not my criteria for reviewing a slot. I like the fact that both base and bonus has potential. Not that brutal imo.

1. Diamond mine (Blueprint) not as brutal as Bonanza -still great potential
2. Primal (Blueprint). Great excitement in both base and bonus.
3. Jamming Jars. Very volatile and haven`t seen a 200x plus myself, but still..
4. Who wants to be a millionaire I really like it. Just as you are swear about getting 10fs "only", it throws in 200-500x. Think it is pretty balanced.
5. Vikings (Netent) -Finally a decent slot. Can be a sucker to get the bonus, but it is so thrilling, when you get it.

TOSSER: Book of god. Terrible!! Shite basegame and even the bonus is not getting me off my chair. Poor math model. Expected more.

Merry Christmas folks :thumbsup:
