Thanks to the efforts of our evermore creative software developers, we now have access to a huge diversity of mobile slot themes.
Whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s cute and fruit-filled or gritty and film noir, there’s a slot game out there that’s got it. Let’s take a look at the most popular themes you can find nowadays in your average mobile slot app!
The gambling industry has a long history. People have been pulling levers and throwing dice for decades. So it’s only natural that game designers make homages to those old pub fruities and classic slots.
Classic slot designers sometimes even push the nostalgia far enough to recreate the British pub or American 50s diner where you played that first fruity game!
Among some of the best of these “classic slots with a twist” are:
- Neon Reels by iSoftBet (pub fruity but with 3D neons)
- Donuts by Big Time Gaming (50s diner atmosphere)
- Jester Spins by Red Tiger Gaming (super-pimped pub fruity)
We all enjoy playing games that are topical and in-season. When a new Xmas game comes out, it can be great to help you get into that Xmas spirit.
The great thing about seasonal mobile slot themes is that sometimes, you’ll be able to use seasonal promotions on them.
Cherry trees, flowers, butterflies… springtime may not be quite as popular a season for game designers as the rest, but you’re bound to find some pretty nice Easter- or nature-based mobile slot themes.
Check out games like Spring Break, Freaky Fruits, or In Bloom to bask in some of that flowery goodness.
Now, these are much easier to find than Spring-themed slots. Whether it’s beaches, barbecues or just sunny days that you’re missing, there’s plenty to sate your appetite in the mobile slot world!
You can go to tropical locations where summer is eternal in games like The Tipsy Tourist, or Aloha! Cluster Pays. Alternatively, you can roast some mean chilli peppers with PlaynGO’s Sizzling Slots!
Autumn & Halloween Slots
Skeletons, ravens, witches, pumpkins… game designers grab all the good stuff in the spooky season. It’s pretty hard to pick favourites here as Halloween-themed slot games are humongously popular and well-made.
Recent spooky slot games that have been quite successful include Esqueleto Mariachi, Trendy Skulls, and Blood Suckers II.
Winter & Christmas Slots
Get ready for the snow and mistletoe! Christmas is a favourite of game designers, and it shows in the care they take to make their slots as fun and cosy as can be.
Playtech’s Santa Surprise is a great one to start with. Or you could try out Secrets of Christmas by NetEnt if you like your games to have high-quality graphics!
Ancient Egyptian Slots
It’s pretty easy to see what’s so attractive about an Ancient Egyptian mobile slot theme. Gold and riches is one of the first associations we make with Ancient Egyptian culture.
And gambling is a bit like being the first to stumble on a huge stash of treasure. So naturally, Ancient Egypt was among the first viral slot themes you could find.
If you want to start with the golden oldies, try IGT’s Cleopatra. You could also go for the panoply of more recent Egyptian slots like Microgaming’s Pharaoh’s Tomb, or Cryptologic’s Cleo Queen of Egypt.
If you’re unlucky with the Egyptians, the luck of the Irish certainly won’t let you down. Featuring Celtic artwork, leprechauns, and Irish music, these slot games have rapidly grown to be player favourites.
Irish-themed series like Rainbow Riches can be a way to play whilst knowing what to expect. For more experimental and modern games, try Just For the Win’s Rainbrew or Yggdrasil’s Rainbow Ryan.
American Wild West Slots
Whether it’s the oil rush or the gold rush, every player loves a good wild west slot. You can expect dusty stretches of desert and tired old cowboys here.
Gamble like you’ve just pushed through the creaky doors of a saloon with games like Betsoft’s Black Gold, BTG’s Bonanza, or NetEnt’s Dead or Alive.
These will alternatively be called “Oriental” slots. Slot games based on Chinese or Japanese culture have been popular from the start too, perhaps because of the rich, elegant visuals that inspire players to be brave and achieve great success.
Popular games exploiting this mobile slot theme include Lucky FireCracker, Asian Beauty, and the legendary progressive jackpot game, Mega Moolah.
