What are themed slots?

Slots themes are the concepts on which the game is based. In our time, we’ve found many themes varying from ancients and Irish to TV, sports and music.

Often, players like themes with strong cultural influences. Hence, historical, movie and hobby-based themes are very popular with UK players. People love different slot themes for a wide range of reasons. First, it could give them a nostalgic feeling, this is why classic slots still remain popular to this day.

Second, people enjoy themes for the gameplay, graphics and audio. For example, Wild West themes are a UK favourite because of the cool music, interesting symbols and bonus features.

Third, with many themes, there is a social aspect, especially when it comes to playing slot tournaments. Often, game developers such as Wazdan or Pragmatic Play run monthly tournaments where UK players can win a share of millions of pounds.

Lastly, specific slot game themes such as TV or movies contain popular culture references. For example, if you love the franchise, Rocky, the symbols are what you’d expect. Rocky, Apollo Creed and more, which are highly relevant to the movie. 

Why do people like to play themed slots?

Players enjoy themed slots for many reasons. We break down the main three below.

  • Nostalgia: Many slots give UK players a feeling of nostalgia. This is particularly obvious with classic fruit slots but also with movie, TV and fairytale-themed online slots.
  • Gameplay: Gameplay is crucial to any decent online slot game. Some players prefer it simple, whilst others enjoy features such as tumble down or Megaways. Also, many players love bonus features such as mini-games and free spin rounds.
  • Popular Culture: Plenty of slots themes are based on popular culture. This is common in music, TV, movie and sports-themed slots. People enjoy a particular movie so it’s no surprise they also like playing the slot.

An overview of the most popular slots themes

Now that we’ve explained what slot themes are and why folks love them so much, we delve into the most popular ones. Our experts have compiled the most popular slots themes you can play at online casinos in the UK. Check out below.

Ancient Egypt

ancient egypt slotsBy far one of the most popular themed slots in the UK is the Ancient Egyptian ones. The symbols take you back to the time of the Pharaohs and the Pyramids, with the graphics and gameplay reminiscent of that. 

Big game developers like Play n’GO produce tons of Ancient Egyptian-themed slots. One UK players are particularly fond of is Book of Dead. It follows the explorer Rich Wilde and is a 5x3 reel slot with 10 adjustable pay lines. The RTP is 96.21% and the volatility is high. 

When you register at many of our recommended online casinos, you’ll find free spins on the Book of Dead. If you’re lucky you might even get a massive 200 free spins! 

People love Ancient Egyptian slots because of the mystery of the civilization. The pyramids and the sphinx are often part of the gameplay along with hieroglyphics and ancient symbols such as the eye of Horus. 

Moreover, as Ancient Egypt is seen as one of the birthplaces of civilisation the cultural connotations draw many players to enjoy Egyptian-themed slots. 

The most popular games with the Ancient Egyptian theme include Book of Dead, Cleopatra and Age of Egypt. You can play all these at most online casinos in the UK and even try the demo version first. 

Ancient Greece 

ancient greece slotsAncient Greek slots themes are popular for the same reason why Ancient Egyptian ones are. The mystery and the intrigue of one of the world's oldest and most sophisticated civilisations. 

The Gods play a big part in why Ancient Greek-themed slots are very popular in the UK. Often, the graphics will show legendary Gods such as Zeus, Hercules and Achilles. The gameplay will include Ancient Greek symbols such as The Parthenon, the Greek alphabet and of course, Greek Gods. 

One of the most popular game series that UK players cannot get enough of is called Age of the Gods. The main game game with the same namesake is made by leading game developer, Playtech. it features all the Greek Gods where you’re able to unlock up to 4 bonus features. The RTP of the slot is 96.14% and it’s a 5 reel 25 pay line game. 

The historical fascination keeps players hooked, and with excellent gameplay, bonus feature rounds, top graphics and enchanting sounds, Greek mythology slots remain a favourite in the UK. 

The most popular titles are Midas Golden Touch, Gates of Olympus and of course, Age of the Gods. 

Irish 

Irish slotsIrish-themed slots have always been a fan's favourite in the UK because of the cultural aspects and proximity of the UK to Ireland. 

People love everything about Irish mythology because it goes hand in hand with betting. For example, the luck of the Irish is a perfect saying for when you play online slots

The symbols of Irish-themed slots are what you expect. You’ll find leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows and clovers. The bonus rounds will often feature these symbols and the scatters and wilds will be quintessentially Irish. 

As Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle, green is the main colour for Irish-themed slot games. By far the most popular slot in the UK remains 9 Pots of Gold. The game is made by the top brand, Red Tiger Gaming and if you land all 9 pots of gold on the reels you stand to win 2000x your stake. The RTP is 96.24%, medium volatility and has 20 fixed pay lines. 

If you want to try your luck at Irish-themed slots, then there is so much to choose from for UK players. For example, you can try Big Irish Bucks, Irish Luck or 4x Clover at many of our recommended casinos on this page. 

Sports 

Sports slotsSports are a huge part of popular culture in the UK, so it’s no surprise that UK players love sports-themed online slot games. You can play everything from football, rugby and cricket to motorsports, tennis and golf themes. Each one has its features and nuances, so finding your favourite can take time. 

Nevertheless, you’re able to play demo versions at online casinos before you play for real money. Just pick any of our recommended casinos, register for an account and start playing your favourite sport-themed slot now. 

Football slots themes are very popular, especially ones that have a central character such as Top Trumps Football Stars. The game, which is developed by Playtech features some of the biggest current and former stars in world football. We’re talking about Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane. 

Top Trump's Football Stars has an RTP of 93.97% and when you launch the game, you can choose the theme of top football nations such as England, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Netherlands or Italy. It’s a 5 reel slot with 15 pay lines with a fun free spins feature. 

Other popular sports slots include Football Star by Microgaming, Tennis Stars by Playtech and Rugby Star by Microgaming. 

Fishing 

Fishing slotsFishing is a popular pastime in the UK, seen as relaxing and entertaining at the same time. As many people enjoy it, there are plenty of fishing slots theme games to play. 

The symbols are what you’d expect. A wide range of fish, a fishing rod, tackle, boats and even a fisherman. One of the best online slots in the UK is the Big Bass Bonanza series. 

It’s made by Pragmatic Play, which means it’s always part of the Drop & Wins monthly slot tournaments. You can play the main game: Big Bass Bonanza or tons of derivatives of it. Other popular ones include Big Bass Splash, Big Bass Amazon Extreme and Big Bass Bonanza Megaways. 

The regular Big Bass Bonanza game has an RTP of 96.71% and is medium volatility. It’s popular with high rollers because you can bet up to £250 per spin. Also, the free spins round is something the game is famous for. 

Besides the Big Bass Bonanza series, other fishing-themed slot games are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. These include; Gone Fishing made by Ruby Play, Lucky Fisherman by Skywind and Go Fish! from Inspired Gaming. 

TV 

TV Slots Watching TV after a long hard day is the norm in the UK, and we all have our favourite TV shows and personalities. The great thing about slots themes based around the tele is that you can play hundreds if not thousands of slots. 

One of the most popular subsections of TV-themed online slots are ones based on game shows. Everyone in the UK loves them, whether Deal or No Deal, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? or Pointless, you’ll always find an online slot. 

As Deal or No Deal is all about chance, it goes without saying that the slot version is very popular in the UK. With 5 spinning reels and 10 pay lines, UK players love it because of the mini-games. You can unlock the banker's choice or the player's choice where you can choose a prize from the boxes. To do this, you must land 3 scatters anywhere on the reels. 

Developed by Blueprint Gaming, Deal or No Deal has an RTP of 95.34% and is a medium volatility online slot game. 

Besides game shows, you can also play popular TV series-themed slots. Try your luck at Family Guy, Narcos or Vikings. If you prefer something British, you can play Little Britain or X Factor themes.  

Movies 

Movies SlotsJust like TV shows, movies are a staple in popular culture. People love their favourite films and consume many things from toys to video games with the same theme. You’ll also be happy to hear that tons of movies have online slots. 

You’re able to play as your favourite movie character when you spin the reels whether it’s Batman, Alan Parish from Jumanji or even Ace Ventura

There are hundreds of movie-themed slots to choose from, and many are made by top game developers such as IGT, Novomatic and NetEnt

So whether it’s a comic book movie like Justice League, or an adventure one such as Gladiator, you’ll find an online slot to suit your tastes. 

Our pick is Jumaji, based on the hit film with the same namesake starring Dwayne Johnson. It’s made by NetEnt, has an RTP of 96.6% and has 36 pay lines. 

You can trigger the bonus game if you land 3 or more scatters or choose to buy it before you start spinning the reels. 

Fruits 

Fruits slotsWhen we say fruit-style slots, we are talking about the classic ones you used to play back in the day. The old-school slot machines were found at land-based casinos in the 20th century, but now you can play these games online. 

Fruit slots bring up a sense of nostalgia, for when we played one arm bandits in the pub or the casino. Everyone has played one in their time, so everyone is familiar with the symbols. You’ll find fruits, bars, bells etc. when you spin the reels, hoping to land on just 3 reels. 

Nowadays, game developers make fruit-themed slots with better graphics and gameplay. One of the most popular classic slots themes games is BerryBurst made by the top game provider, NetNet. 

BerryBurst contains classic fruit-themed symbols which turn into gold. The RTP is 96.56% and gives you the chance to win 5000x your stake. UK players love the game for its expanding wilds and exciting respins feature. 

Other types of slot games with a fruit theme include; Hot Chilli made by Pragmatic Play, Fruitoids by Yggdrasil and Fruit Shop by NetEnt. 

Wild West 

Wild West slotsWild West slot themes are one of the most popular in the UK. This is mainly because of the immersive gameplay, exciting characters and fun audio. 

The symbols are what you expect in Wild West slots themes. There will be a prospector (usually the main character), pickaxe, gold, gold cart, horses and often Jack - Ace playing cards. The mini-games and bonus features of Wild West slots are also something that makes these slot types popular. 

With all that being said, one of the most popular Wild West slot themes games is Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist made by the leading game provider, NetEnt. The slot has terrific graphics and offers players loads of bonus features. 

Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist has an RTP of 96.74%, which is on the higher side for online slots. In addition, it is a classic 3x5 reel slot with low to medium volatility. The only downside is the maximum amount you can win, which is 500x. Rather low for an online slot game. 

UK players are also big fans of Wanted Dead or Alive (NetEnt), Deadwood (NoLimitCity) and Wild West Gold (Pragmatic Play). 

Space 

Space slotsSpace types of slots have always been popular with UK players. Take Starburst for example, which remains one of the most played online slots in the UK, still after 10 years! 

Space-themed slot games provide exciting graphics and even better gameplay. Many feature symbols of aliens and planets of the solar system such as Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.
