I’m going home or at least I’m going to give it a try. There’s one very hard-headed government I rely on to get home. If we manage, we’ll soon enough be able to do the lockdown from our very own safe place called home. It’s time to get ready for the big quarantine with some of the best video slots to play during the big lockdown. What NetEnt video slots I am adding to my quarantine list?
My top 5 quarantine video slots
This is no official quarantine top 5, this is simply a list of video slots that I like to play most. This doesn’t mean they are recommended for high wins. These NetEnt video slots are the games I started to appreciate over the years. I don’t play these video slots for the wins, I simply play them because I like the characters, the music, the gameplay or the theme.
To create my quarantine video slots top 5, I do have one extra special requirement to make my quarantine video slots top 5 work during these bizarre time. They have to be cheerful because the situation is bad enough as it is. That’s why there are no zombies, ghosts, Dracula, or any other dark-themed video slots.
Gonzo’s Quest™ slot
Let’s start with my all-time favourite NetEnt slot, Gonzo’s Quest™. This video slot was launched in 2011 and it was thanks to this game that I started to appreciate video slots as a form of entertainment. Even though the game was launched almost 10 years ago, the game doesn’t show any signs of its age. If you wouldn’t know, you would think it was launched yesterday as the game was its time far ahead.
The main reason Gonzo’s Quest™ is one of my all-time favourites is the main character used for the video slot. Gonzo, nicknamed The Gonz, is a character you must like as there’s no way around him. His grumpiness, his moonwalk, and his impatience. How not to like this Spanish conquistador? Join Gonzo during his search for Eldorado, the lost city of gold. Meanwhile, you’ll enjoy one of the most innovative games from NetEnt’s game collection.
Finn’s Golden Tavern™
With the Finn’s Golden Tavern™ video slot, I added the most cheerful Leprechaun to the list. If he can’t bring you in a better mood, nobody can. While Finn shows you around in his favourite pub, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off that spiral spin. This because every winning combination can lead to a series of events.
As soon as a first winning combination appears, symbols will be disappearing. They will be replaced for a Wild symbol which has an important role to play in the Finn’s Golden Tavern™ slot. Wilds will appear when a winning combination is created without a Wild. If a Wild is involved in a winning combination, Wilds will disappear together with the rest of the symbols involved.
The spiral pattern can bring the Free Spins Chest to the heart of the game to activate 5 Free Spins. The gameplay remains the same during Free Spins but with a Multiplier Meter linked to it. The multiplier meter goes up one step for each Wild that is generated during avalanches. For every 5 steps in the meter, the multiplier goes up by 1 with no maximum Multiplier available.
Free Spins are always fun, but if the Chest symbol manages to reach the heart of the game during Free Spins, it will activate the coin bonus feature. This feature places out a number of coin symbols onto the reels with random values assigned to them.
In November 2015, during the 11th eGR Operator Awards, NetEnt received the Game of the Year Award. It received this glamorous iGaming prize for its outstanding Spiñata Grande™ video slot. The game must be added to my quarantine video slot list for two reasons. It’s one of the most cheerful games and because of its innovative gameplay. It’s not for nothing that NetEnt receive such a prestigious award for the Spiñata Grande™ slot.
The Spiñata Grande™ slot brings joy to the reels with its colourful pinatas and the Mariachi band playing Mexico’s traditional sounds. This game is bringing an innovating gameplay with its Mini slot feature and Colossal symbols. The part of the Colossal Bonus symbol that appears on the reels after a spin turns into 3, 6 or individual Mini-Slot symbols.
Three or more Free Spins symbols during the Mini slot feature will activate 5 Free Spins. For every Free Spins symbol, another Free Spin will be awarded. The Colossal Wild is a great addition to the Free Spins feature, recognized as a block of 3×3 symbols on the 3 middle reels. These will substitute for all symbols except for Bonus symbols.
Jungle Spirit™ slot
I guess it’s me missing the jungle already that I added the Jungle Spirit™ video slot to my quarantine slots top 5. The game is going to take me back into the jungle complete with unnerving jungle sounds and impressive animals! Thanks to the innovating gameplay used for the Jungle Spirit™ video slot, you can choose between five different Free Spins features.
This jungle-themed video slot brings a charismatic Bengal tiger, jungle elephant, brown bear, fearsome crocodile, and sneaky Naja cobra. Each have their own Special Spins feature with a different volatility to choose from. They have the ability to expand entirely after a luminous butterfly becomes visible when involved in a winning combination.
You’ll be able to activate up to 60 free spins which makes you look forward to Free Spins feature. You’ll get to choose 1 out of 5 Free Spins animals. Back to the jungle, one of the most magic places on earth, although destroyed in a record tempo for animals to lose their homes! If only….
Vikings™ video slot
Not the most cheerful video slot around, I had to add the Vikings™ slot as I’m still following the series, waiting for the last season to come out. Vikings has quickly become a TV favourite on HISTORY® channel in the US. The series first aired in 2013 and ever since, has a vast audience worldwide.
You’ll get introduced to the gods the Vikings believed in. meet Odin, the most powerful and wisest god, Thor, the god of thunder, and Loki, a cheeky mischief-maker which was able to change into many animals.
The series, as well as the Viking™ slot, provides a great introduction to Norse Mythology and the Viking’s traditions. The series starts with Ragnar and Lagertha starting from scratch at a farm with their children, the first Vikings to emerge from Norse legend and onto the pages of history.
Vikings™ slot features
Vikings™ takes players to the brutal Viking period where characters had to use their wits to survive and were answerable only to the gods. Enjoy this 243 betways video slot featuring a Hotspot Feature, and a Shield Wall Feature. And add to that the Raid Spins symbol and a Raid Spins mode including 3 Hotspots for even more action! During Raid Spins the game is changing to a 7-reel, 5-row, 78 125 betways reel area.
