Definitely NetEnt and MG are the top two. Lots of entertaining games with nice potential.

Somehow I never seem to win anything from IGT slots so I usually stay away from those :p

This is influenced a lot by the all round casino experience. I'm tempted to say MG because of the stellar service @ 32RED - Which makes the whole piece engaging and fun.

Purely on a software basis however and the quality/immersion factor of the games - I'd put them (currently) in this order:

1) NetEnt
2) Microgaming
3) RTG
4) Intercasino (Cryptologic)
5) Wagerworks

You can't beat MG for variety and choice, whereas NetEnt are taking the slots rule book, stealing the basics - then tearing up the rest and doing it their way. Superb, beautiful illustrations as well.

Im under the impression that netent pays more than the others. I have won on MG but not nearly as often/much as on netent

I'm thinking that's probably not the case, however Andy @ Redbet's comment was interesting in that he mentioned they don't take on slots with less than a 95% RTP...

This would therefore mean that NetEnt slots produce a RTP above 95% which, if representative across the board, is excellent to know.

I think we're all just used to MG. If you trawl the Winner Screenshots thread there are plenty of monster MG hits; most notably on the similarly high variance/volatile slots (BDBA - I'm looking at you.)

Wagerworks number 1. You may be surprised given that there are relatively few of them but you don't get rogue WW casinos and seldom any complaints. The games are old but still fun and tested, the original HV slot was probably CleopatraII.
Microgaming Number 2. Just on variety and general reliability.
Williams Number 3. Just a novel selection of games, although limited and can get tedious.
3 Dice no.4 (although I got the arse one night and quit my account after a bad session mistakenly playing a HV slot and they won't reopen lol)
Netent No.5 I find them playing as if they use exactly the same algorithms as some MG slots. Wild rockets/Evolution seem to play predictably like TSII for example in this pattern: Shit feature 5-20x stake a few times. Then one 30-60x stake. A couple more shit ones. Then you get the 150-250 x 'good feature' followed by more shite ones. The long stretches without any feature then a glut of them a la TSII. Then knowing 4 scatters guarantees you a shit-to-mediocre return...zzzzz.......DoA is a copy of BDBA except that the freespins jackpot is formulated by 5 wilds sticking several times instead of one 5x sapphires/gold bars with wild on the freespins, and the scatters payout on 3,4,5 unlike BDBA.

IMO Playtech is pretty good but dragged down by the number of rogue operators.

Yes, that's why I omitted them. Apart from a few big-name bookmakers' sites even the 'good' ones enforce a vile 96-hour reversal period. If it wasn't for that, I'd have put them at number 3.

Well put.
I'm doing pretty well on Playtech in 2013 (at decent casinos) so I'd put them number 1 just now.
Give me Penguin Vacation and Marilyn Monroe over 243 line hypes like IR any day

MG/Cryptologic joint second. Although Intercasino are miles behind playtech in terms of slick graphics etc, I still get some nice payouts on their dinosaur era slots from time to time.

RTG right at the bottom of the list for me.

Intercasino slots were the crappest I ever played. RTG are mind-numbing and volatile, and seem to be 4 different slots each cloned 15 times. I agree IR is awful. Cryptologic - too many rogues.

At the moment it's netent, but grrrrrr it's doing my head in, this dead or alive slot, I love Jack and the beanstalk and piggy riches.

Followed then by playtech then microgaming.

playtech- penguin vacation and great blue are my favorite.

microgaming- center court, immortal romance, dark knight and thunderstruck are favorites.

Least fav is rtg.

Sorry to be boring, but I agree with most who have posted before me;
NetEnt closely followed by MG (NetEnt win due to the originality and entertainment value of their slots)

Worst, also RTG. Their slots are all slightly different - but they all look, and more importantly, sound the same. A little bit of imagination in this department would go a long way IMHO...

rtg = poor poor & poorer ) neck & neck netent mg , considering my play at both pound for pound along bets played netent wins hands down , but i like unique games like 3 dice , jackpotparty so im on the fence to be honest because i do get great play within all of them , if your asking lost funds losing far too much that goes to mg casinos across pretty much all of them , but having said that ive just started enjoying netent so mg casinos better watch this space because my deposits are going netents way ), but they play smooth , nice change .

Best: Microgaming
Worst: Wagerworks

I would say best is RTG caused by the really nice slots over there. But due to their "max payout" i do not play or recommend this software any longer.

Right behind you
Netent and Playtech.
RTG casinos must be the one i like the least. Feels like you're going around in a ghost casino which was abandoned 50 years ago. And when you finaly win you dont know if there will be a real human sitting in the cage ready to pay you, or some skeleton which only got some dust to offer.

Not a big fan of the rival slots either. Feels like you cant win more than 3xbet.

I really like NetEnt and Playtech due to good graphics and the smoothness in animations.

Aristocrat software is my ultimate favourite but hardly any casinos run them so Netent and MG would be the ones I mostly play;) I like RTG as well, but they hardly ever pay out :)

Favorite...

1. Netent: The slots just seem to pay more. The graphics are also some of the best.
2. Playtech: I swore I'd never play this software again after the Speilo incident, I gave it another chance and I'm on a great winning streak. My favorite games are Penguin Vacation and Mr Cashback.

Not so favorite...

3. Micogaming: Shame to because MG used to be my number one. I'm not a fan of the funkified loosing streaks. Getting a good combo on BDBA is like pulling teeth out compared to the above two casinos.
4. RTG: My deposits arent very big. I'll always take a bonus. I play RTG purely for entertainment. I just find the low return on features rather disgusting.
5. Cyptologic: NEVER-WON-A-DAMN-THING! I've only ever played Intercasino but my god those slots are TIGHT! I won't play Crypto anymore due to my bad run at Intercasino.

My choices are based on the reasons I play. I'm a slots player and tend to play for entertainment and the chance at a big win.
