Most Popular Online Slot Themes of 2019

Slot games are not just about their prizes and features, but very often about their themes. The range is endless, and you will literally find a slot on any and every theme imaginable.

We have compiled a list of what we think were 2019’s most popular slot themes. Let us know if you agree.

Horror Slots

The theme of horror has always been popular, which is why you will always find books, comics, games, movies, and television shows based on it. Horror themed slots have dark, scary backgrounds and sound effects such as groans, sudden shrieks, and others that can set your heart racing.


Who knows why people keep flocking to these slots, but they do.

Play horror slots such as Microgaming’s Alaxe in Zombieland and Immortal Romance, Playtech’s Zombirthday, and NetEnt’s Dracula at online casinos.

Fairy Tales

Slots developers are well-aware of the fact that players love to revisit their childhood days. They have, therefore, created several slots based on popular fairy tales. The graphics, animations, and audio effects of fairy tale slots successfully generate a magical environment, making players feel as if they are right back in their childhood days, reading their favorite fairy tale for the first time.

Some of the most popular fairy tale slots are IGT’s Pixies of the Forest, Microgaming’s Mad Hatters, and NetEnt’s Jack and the Beanstalk.

TV Show Slots

The best way to attract online casino players is to give them slots inspired by their favorite television shows. Game show slots such as Price is Right, Deal or No Deal, and Wheel of Fortune are the most popular among slots inspired by TV shows.

Some of the other popular TV show themed slots are Sex and the City, Twilight Zone, and Star Trek.

Movie Slots

Movie slots are the hottest games in online casino libraries. Since they are movie inspired, they feature amazing graphics, sound effects, and animations. The reels are populated with symbols of movie characters, the soundtrack is lifted from the movie, and players are treated to authentic clips from the movie as they spin the reels. In addition, they have amazing bonus rounds, free spins with multipliers, large jackpots, and other special features.

Movie slots such as Playtech’s Top Gun and Kong – The 8th Wonder of the World, Microgaming’s Jurassic Park, Blueprint’s Ted, and NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes are the most-played games at online casinos.

Fruit Slots

The earliest slot machine games featured symbols of fruits to connect with the flavored chewing gum and/or candies they gave away as prizes. Even in 2019, reputed game providers develop slots featuring symbols of fruits, bars, sevens, and others to re-create the traditional slots gaming experience.


The best of the new fruit slots, Fruit Splash

Today’s fruit slots meet the requirements of players who prefer simple slots with limited or no bonus features. The most innovative of these slots feature amazing graphics and progressive jackpots. Most fruit slots are fruit machine slots.

It’s not just about recreating the traditional slots gaming experience. Fruit symbols such as grapes, slices of watermelon, oranges, and cherries never fail to attract. For this reason, you will find online casinos overflowing with fruit slots.

Examples of fruit slots at online casinos are Realistic Games’ Fruit Factor, NetEnt’s Berry Burst and Fruit Spin, and Red Tiger Gaming’s Fruit Blox.

Food Slots

Since everybody likes food, slots based on the theme of food are never short of players. The food theme is popular among players as well as game developers precisely for this reason.

Game providers have released into the industry slots based on a variety of food themes, including Chinese cuisine, candies and sweets, and restaurants. The reels of food-themed slots are loaded with symbols of drinks, cakes, sweets, fruits, ice creams, hamburgers, soups, noodles, and so on. Food slots are simple but offer great prizes and bonus features.

Some of the top food-themed slots are Betsoft’s Mamma Mia, which is based on the theme of Italian cuisine; Microgaming’s Chinese food themed slot Win Sum Dim Sum; and NextGen’s Picnic Panic, a slot based on the picnic theme.

Culture Slots

Since players never get tired of playing slots based on ancient civilizations and cultures, developers don’t stop rolling out newer slots based on the evergreen themes of ancient Egypt, ancient China, and Ireland.

You will find slots such as PlayNGo’s Leprechaun Goes Egypt, Novomatic’s Book of Ra, NextGen’s Cherry Blosson, and Playtech’s Irish Luck at any standard multi-vendor online casino.

Slots for Women

The number of female Internet users is almost equal to the number of male Internet users. Women love gambling as much as men do. But for a long time, game developers did not find it necessary to develop slots based on feminine tastes and interests.

But things are fast changing now as a result of which you can play games based on the girly themes of fashion, beauty, romance, and lifestyle such as CR Games’ Girls Love to Shop, Betconstruct’s Fashion Show, Cozy Games’ Bargainista, and Wager2Go’s Mrs. Kitty.

Money Slots

Everybody wants to be wealthy and live a luxurious life. The lifestyle of the rich and the famous never fails to fascinate. No wonder we have so many slots based on the themes of wealth, money, and luxury.

The reels of wealth-themed slots feature symbols of diamond rings, yachts, tickets to luxury cruises, luxury cars, and rich men and women. You will feel rich and win some great prizes while spinning the reels of NetEnt’s Mega Fortune, Microgaming’s Cash Splash, and Playtech’s Mr. Cashback, to mention a few.

Superhero Slots

Superheroes have always dominated the world of comics, movies, and now online gambling. The most popular superhero slots are Playtech’s Marvel themed slots such as Spider-Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man, and others. Although Playtech has withdrawn its Marvel slots from online casinos following the acquisition of Marvel Entertainment by Disney, it lost no time in creating substitutes such as Age of the Gods slots.

Online casinos offer superhero slots such as NYX Gaming’s Superman – Last Son of Krypton, Batman, and Justice League and Yggdrasil’s Superheroes.


So, there you have it, some of 2019’s most memorable slot themes. As the year draws to a close, we are excited for what 2020 has in store.
