OK, it's that time of year again! We need your TOP 5 slots of 2019!

The slots were released from 1 Dec. 2018 - 30 Nov. 2019 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.
The winner in 2018 was Reel Time's (via Blueprint) Napoleon Rise of an Empire


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 2019 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!

FTR PLEASE do not fill this thread with memes and irrelevant stuff - it's hard enough to go through it as it is and collect the scores etc.

Simply reply with the requested top 5 in order of preference and TOSSER choice - that's it, no more no less!

Thanks in advance.

Might come back once i think about it. But saw a slot on your list that i thought must be a mistake so checked and sure enough it is real. Weird i have never saw it anywhere. But without even having to open it i know it will be worst ever slot.

So my TOSSER slot goes to Celtic Football Club slot:laugh:

SO much crappy Slots released that weren't even worth the few odd goes i had on them lately :eek2:
Luckily a few stood out, so at least it's not that hard this time 'round :)
In no particular order:

1: Money Train
2: Cazino Cosmos
3: Riders on the Storm
4: Tombstone
5: The Final Countdown

I had Blueprint on my list but let's just say that it was a mix of Lightning Strike, LeoVegas Megaways, Thunder Cats - Thundera and Legacy of Ra - which all would make an honorable 6th place. Really expected more from Elk and Quickspin, providers that used to top any fav list for me in the last few years, but it feels like they changed their concept too much, and i find myself playing, or rather enjoying them less and less!

Luckily i am as poor as job lately, so i don't really have to figure out what to play :D

Tosser Award goes to every WazDan and BetSoft slot out there, worst providers ever i.m.o. (don't trust them to be fair either)

TOSSER: Holy Diver

While this definitely was the year of the Megaways most of them were absolute crap, especially the likes of Machina and Rainbow Riches but Holy Diver definitely took it to another level... I haven't even come close to a decent hit on DOA 2 but it's hard to ignore it as the best slot of the year. PnG needs to step it up again, even tho with Rise of Merlin they released a great Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 clone and Honey Rush isn't bad they weren't very creative either. And 9K Yeti isn't a bad slot but as I wrote in the providers topic it lacks a little something especially in the bonus, I'm sure they'll get it right tho and we'll see some great slots from them as they seem to be interested in players opinions.

You also added a BTG game, clearly a spelling error lol.

Moneytrain? Really
The base game is none existent and all it has to offer is the bonus buy that we can’t buy in the uk.
Personally I don’t believe bonus buy slots are slots, just basically a scratch card under a different guise.

Yeah mate! I actually love the game for the basegame: i really hate bonus buys (on almost any slot) personally, and only ever do those when i'm already considerably up, to see if i can get a cheeky 'extra' win on top...

I swear that if the game is in a good mood the basegame is excellent, and of course it will dish out bonuses as well, and i had some pretty good sessions on it that way. It does often take some time to 'warm up' but the base game usually tends to dish outenough wins to keep a decent balance going until you trigger the first bonus. That said, i am an ultra low roller for the most part, and even with my limited deposits, that does mean i can afford several 100's of spins on it, which quite often are needed before it will actually warm up (if at all).

Something has happened to Microgaming. They used to release some of my favorite slots (Jurassic Park, Playboy, Immortal Romance etc.). Now it's all some low variance boring slots with no interesting features at all.
