What Makes a Great Slot Game?

We love slots here at Lucky Cow Bingo and as you can probably guess, we have a lot of experience in what makes these good for our players. We’ve compiled all of the things that we look for in a slot game, so you know why we have these on our site.

Cool Themes

The theme of a game is often what gets you interested in the first place! Some of our favourite slots are ones with an unexpected or especially interesting theme. While some of our players just want the same fruit machines they always play on, it’s important for us to be able to give you all a choice!

These themes can be branded, like XO Manowar, or something completely original, like Art of the Heist. We’re mostly looking for games that really use the theme well, rather than just having it in the title. This means a well-designed game that has relevant bonus features and some cool symbols.

Animal themes are usually quite popular with our players too, as they get the chance to play with some cuddly creatures. You only need to look at the Fluffy Favourites series to see just how popular this theme can be!

Bonus Features

While classic fruit machines can be interesting, we also love to see expansive games that have a lot of bonus features to experience. It’s becoming quite common to see free spins within these games, but we also like to see slots that offer something different. Some cool bonus features include:

  • Pick and Win – These games allow you to pick from mystery bonuses, which are then added to your wager. If you’re lucky, you can win a whole lot more to be added to your bet with these bonus rounds.
  • Random Bonuses – So many bonuses rely on you matching up a lot of symbols and sometimes that can be tricky. That’s where random bonuses can come in handy, as they have the potential to come along on any spin!
  • Repins – Rather than giving out free spins all at once, getting a respin on selected spins can be a lot more achievable for players. With these, you can basically get a single free spin and sometimes wild symbols can be held in place for the duration of these.
  • Prize Wheels – These can also help you to win some additional prizes, though they’re never guaranteed! You might win free spins or multipliers within these rounds that help you to really boost your bet.
  • Gamble Bonus – If you want the chance to get more for your money, then these can come in quite handy. There is an element of risk involved with these bonuses, as you could end up losing your jackpot entirely!

These are just some of the cool bonus features that you could experience within the lobby of our site! With so many games, you’ll be sure to find something to suit you.

Flexible Betting

Not all of us are high rollers and want to spend a lot of cash on every spin, so we need games that are flexible to play on. Many of the games that you will find in our lobby can be played with just a penny per spin, so you can experience them without spending a lot.

Generally speaking, the most flexible games allow you to customise your paylines and the bet that you make per line too. These then combine together to create an overall bet. Once you’re happy with that you can spin the reels.

Some players are tempted to start putting down their paylines in order to bring costs down, but it’s important to be aware that this also impacts your chances of winning. Therefore, you may be better compromising one side of the betting options, rather than both.

Safety and Fairness

We only allow safe, fair play tested games here in our lobby too. This means that you don’t need to worry about checking each one’s credentials, as you can rest assured that we’ve done the legwork in that regard. We only work with tried and trusted developers, who use a random number generator to ensure that their games really are fair.

This means that you can go ahead and take out any of our games for a test drive – without having to worry about game fixing. It’s important for us to check into this as we want players to feel like they’re being treated fairly and have a real chance of being able to win.

We’re experts at picking out slot games and when you play with us, you’ll get to benefit from that experience. These different games will allow you to have a really varied experience, so you shouldn’t be afraid to jump in with them. Then you can start enjoying a world of different slot game adventures!
