Like most of us, you’re probably ready to wave adios! to 2021. It’s time to welcome in a fresh and happy 2022. And we have just the thing to start the New Year off right: It’s our 5 most popular online slots

Over the past year, these five have topped the list of most played and most liked among players. They just can’t get enough of the fun storylines, whirling graphics, and amazing paydays found in the games. These slots developed a huge following that’s sure to only get even bigger in coming months, and that’s why we decided to celebrate them as we ring in a brand new year. 

Are you ready to discover what makes these the best 2022 online slots to play? 


Mount Olympus awaits in Fury of Zeus. This 5-reel, 20-payline Greek mythology-inspired slot is set in the Olympian kingdom in the clouds, where four powerful Greek gods act as game icons, while also taking part in the storyline. No character is more significant than Zeus; the father of the Greek gods yields great power and appears alongside the reels if you trigger the game’s free spins session to give you double the payouts. 

Other intriguing bonus features include a wild icon that substitutes for other icons in order to create extra wins. As a bonus, they apply a 3X multiplier to any payout they help create. These wilds pay a large sum (2,500X) when you land four on a payline, while scatters pay a more modest amount and aren’t restricted to paylines. The game also boasts a god-sized random progressive jackpot. With the sun basking on the giant marble columns and statues, this game is as picturesque as it is fun.


An extra-large version of the original Reels and Wheels, Reels and Wheels XL has five reels of retro fun and once again places you in an arcade from the 80s. The glossy white game buttons are fun to press (albeit virtually), and the colorful 2D symbols include iconic watermelons, plums, cherries, 7s, Diamonds, and card symbols. 

A nice suite of bonus features makes this game extra appealing for payout hunters and huntresses. The free spin session is boosted by a random multiplier, which results in way bigger payouts than what are possible in the base game. Another fun bonus feature is the Bonus Wheel, which lets you spin for up to 500X your stake, or gets you access to the game’s Jackpot Wheel. 

The game’s progressive jackpot can only be triggered through the Jackpot Wheel. It’s one of five jackpot prizes that range in size from Mini (smallest) to Vegas (full progressive jackpot). Take a spin and see if you can bring up the wheel; it’s the best part of Reels and Wheels XL.


In the dry arid plains of the Wild Wild West, golden buffalo roam that are worth their weight in gold. This slot has a fun and quirky soundtrack plus six reels and four rows of game icons that create 4,096 unique ways to win with each spin. Matches simply need to appear on consecutive reels, beginning with the first one, to result in a payout, and the sixth reel means you can get rare six-match payouts. To further boost your chances of winning, many icons appear in stacks, such as the menacing bald eagle, the foreboding wolf, and most importantly, the golden buffalo.   

Wilds and Bonus icons are scattered throughout the Golden Buffalo reels and offer opportunities to earn extra payouts. The wilds substitute for winning icons to generate more wins, and the Bonus icons trigger free spins (18, 15, 25 or 100 free spins). Once you’re spinning for free, a special type of wild appears on the reels: the wild multiplier. These wilds have multipliers assigned to them, and when more than one is part of a winning line, they multiply together for up to 3,125X the payout. 


Holograms of classic slot icons and a black celestial background give this game an inter-galactic yet simple feel. It has the standard five reels and three rows of icons, but packs a punch with 10 multi-directional paylines. Matches can land left-to-right, right-to-left and within the three central reels in order to trigger a payout party.  

The biggest payout of all is the progressive jackpot advertised overtop of the reels of 777 Deluxe. To win it, you must trigger the slot’s bonus round by landing three Mystery icons on the reels. This bonus round takes you to a second screen where there is a special set of reels containing only multi-colored 7s. You get to spin the reels several times and grab the payouts that coincide with the colors you land. Watch for gold; three gold 7s triggers the mega jackpot. 


Even though it came out years ago, A Night With Cleo continues to draw action as if it’s a brand-new slot. You’ll want to select the top-quality graphics in the game settings for this one, as it takes you to the Egyptian pharaoh’s chamber for a chance to meet Cleo in person. 

In order to do that, you will need to activate the game’s Double or Nothing mini game following a winning spin. In this game, you risk your payout for the chance to double it. Cleopatra will present you with two flowers, and you choose the one that you think is concealing gold coins; you have a 50-50 shot at guessing right and having your payout doubled. Warning: mature graphics accompany each win in the Gamble feature of A Night With Cleo.

Beyond the more obvious appeal of the game, a random progressive jackpot is also an intriguing feature that makes it possible to win a jaw-dropping sum of money after any spin.
