By Charles Perrin

Slots have always been a driving force for mobile casinos over the years. Whether you have an Android or iOS device, plenty of eyes will be fixed on the slot offering at your chosen operator, and with more advancements in gaming technology, the slot segment is more appealing than ever before.

But what are the best mobile slots to play? This guide should act as a source of inspiration as we untangle the gameplay and special features connected with six of the finest titles that are readily available. As a side note, the following slots are presented in no particular order, and there is a mix of classic and newer titles thrown into our list to give you a flavor of what to expect.


One of the most revered slots on this page, Starburst is an undeniable classic that continues to enthrall all types of players. Paying testament to the success of NetEnt as an innovator in the slots sphere, Starburst, which was released back in 2012, encompasses the theme of space, and it comprises a five-reel game with 10 paylines.

With left-to-right wins and right-to-left wins, as well as incorporating delightful music and audio effects, Starburst boasts seven paying symbols, with the BAR symbol paying up to 250x your stake, while the wilds can also trigger some huge wins. Oh, and the RTP is at a very respectable 96.1%.

On a visual level, Starburst is delightful and it is a real crowd-pleaser. If you haven’t already tried Starburst, then this is a good starting point for your entry into slots.

Big Bass Bonanza

The first iteration of this intuitive Pragmatic Play franchise came in the form of Big Bass Bonanza, and if you like to fish for some big wins, then this slot will be right up your street! One of the defining and memorable features of this 5-reel, 10-payline title is the free spins. 

Yes, with the free spins, players can trigger this if they land at least 3 scatters on the same line. To be more precise, 3 scatters will garner an extra 10 free spins. And by collecting wilds, you will see more free spins added to your tally, and a greater multiplier applied to all winnings.

Big Bass Bonanza has been a part of the fabric of reputable casinos for a while now. A cursory glance at the Grosvenor online slots collection illustrates this, and this includes many of the Big Bass games. With Big Bass Bonanza, the RTP stands at 96.71% and it falls into the high volatility range.

Mega Moolah

Resplendent in terms of design aesthetics, slot players have long been drawn to the bonafide money maker that is Mega Moolah. Well, the clue is in the name! This slot has dropped some of the biggest wins in online and mobile casino history.

A wild but wonderful expedition to the African savannah could be paved with gold, and there is a progressive jackpot imbued into this slot. Although launched back in 2006, there is something rather nostalgic about the 2D graphics which perhaps shows the slot’s age.

The double wild win feature is worth taking a further look at, especially if you land a wild as part of any win during the base game. Ok, the RTP, which sits at 88% is lower than most other games of its ilk, but it shouldn’t detract from the huge win potential that comes from it. This is a slot you just simply can’t ignore.

Book of Ra Deluxe

Intrepid explorers traversing across Ancient Egypt appears to be a rite of passage for slot players, and that certainly applies to Book of Ra Deluxe. Powered by Novomatic, Book of Ra Deluxe is played on 5 reels, 3 rows, and has 10 fixed paylines.

Launched back in 2005, Book of Ra Deluxe has had a bit of a revamp to ensure it is well-optimized for mobile devices, and the graphics are stunning. While there is only one bonus feature to speak of in the shape of free spins, you can be handsomely rewarded if you land the Tutankhamun or Explorer symbols, the latter of which will pay out at 5,000x your original bet.

A true pioneer in the slots world, Book of Ra Deluxe has spawned countless clones, and it is a game that Novomatic should be rightfully proud of.

Dead or Alive 2

As the sequel to the original Dead or Alive game, Dead or Alive 2, which was developed by NetEnt, provides an endearing UI that makes it engaging to play on all mobile devices.

This 5-reel, 3-row video slot has a distinct Wild West theme to it, with an abundance of features, including Old Saloon. All wins are multiplied by 2, and with a top win prize capped at 2,500x your original stake, there are little qualms players can have with that.

A haunting and slightly eerie soundtrack reverberates in the background as you progress through the game, and if anything it bears similar hallmarks to games, such as Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heists. Anyway, Dead or Alive 2 offers some generous cash prizes, and the RTP sits at 96.8% which is higher than many other slots of its type.

Guns N’ Roses

For the head-banging, rock enthusiasts out there, NetEnt has reserved space for Guns N’ Roses. To commemorate its 30th anniversary in 2016, NetEnt brought out this slot that covers a 5×3 grid and comes with 20 paylines.

You can feel the roar of the crowd and iconic soundtracks, such as Sweet Child of Mine blasting out in the background. Axl Rose, Slash, and other band members all pay well and will impress, and it is a feat of slot engineering genius.

With an RTP of 96.8% boot, players should expect to churn out wins on a regular basis. It is equally rewarding as it is fun to play.


So, there we have it. While this isn’t an exhaustive list, it should serve a purpose in terms of the types of mobile-friendly slots that could take your fancy if you sign up for an operator.

The ones we have outlined all offer something different, well at least in terms of themes, but they continue to attract serious attention. If you are tempted and would like to give them a try, make sure you do so in demo mode first before parting with your hard-earned cash.
