Since the very first online casino site to allow automated payouts opened its virtual doors in 1996, technology has continued to progress. Evolving alongside this are the games – which have expanded to allow brighter graphics, better features and a whole host of unique themes.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at seven of the most popular slot game themes

  1. Fishing

Some of gamers’ most frequently played games are those which involve fishing. This could be because of the tranquillity of underwater graphics, or simply because many of these games have the features each individual is looking for. Whatever the reason, fishing-themed games like Fishin’ Frenzy Big Catch Jackpot King, for example, are a catch amongst players.

  1. Egyptian

There’s clearly something about the mysteries of hieroglyphs and ancient pyramids that players enjoy uncovering on the reels, because Egyptian-themed games have also become increasingly popular throughout the years.

  1. Irish

Wherever you go, there’s always something Irish around. The same goes for Slots, where green scenery and leprechauns fill the reels. Whilst luck is just a concept, the symbols that typically represent this – horseshoes, rainbows, four-leaf clovers – tend to feature in these games, which is possibly why the Luck of the Irish is a popular theme.

  1. Wild West

Many of the casino card games we know and love today originate from the Wild West, with some of the first of Nevada’s casinos featuring this theme. This is why another favourite theme game is the Wild West, where bounty hunters, bandoliers and horses ride into gameplay.

  1. Fruit

We can’t talk about slot games and not mention fruit machines! One of the most iconic eras for the games of chance, fruit-themed Slots came about long before technology took over the games. This is because, when the games were banned, machines were still being developed. To allow people to continue playing, there was no longer a monetary payout. Instead, the aim was to line up matching fruit symbols on the reels by pulling a lever. If you were successful, gum or sweets were dispensed from the machine in the flavour corresponding to the fruit you lined up.

As gameplay with monetary rewards was legalised again, fruit-themed games remained familiar and modern-day online Slots continue to nod to this.

  1. Greek/Norse Mythology

Other favourite themes amongst players are Greek and Norse Mythology-themed games. Like many of our other popular games, there are multiple franchises and standalone reels to spin. The Age of The Gods franchise, for example, is one of the most famous, with some of the most iconic stories making their way onto the reels. Spin with Thor, Odin and even Medusa in these games. You can even play themed Live Roulette!

  1. Space

Some slot games are truly out of this world, and trying your chances as you reach for the stars is clearly a popular thing to do. Online, graphics and sound effects make up the vastness of space, and rockets, spacemen and reels don’t feel very far away. With state-of-the-art animations and more stars than you can ever see – it’s no wonder space-themed Slot games are a hit.
