We would dare to say that there is no self-respecting online casino that does not offer the Starburst stot machine , one of the most famous of all, undoubtedly among the best Netent slots . This game allows you to win up to 50,000 coins, but its strength is certainly the ability to activate the free spins multiple times. Making Starburst one of the most popular slot machines is also its sparkling theme, made of diamonds and precious stones.

Gonzo’s Quest is one of Netent’s first slot machines, one of the most played ever, thanks to its innovative mechanics. In fact, when you get a win, all the symbols that helped create it disappear from the reels and are replaced by new symbols, which fall from above. If these new symbols form another winning combination, you win again. The name of this mechanic is avalanche , and it’s a mechanic that has been copied from tons of other online games .

Book of Ra
You say best slots about Egypt and you inevitably say Book of Ra . A great classic of Novomatic, one of today’s most popular games in its Deluxe version , with refreshed and more current graphics. Book of Ra is a 9 payline game with very simple mechanics; but perhaps that is precisely why it is one of the most famous slots in the world.
Here the review of Book of Ra .
Let’s stay in Ancient Egypt to talk about Cleopatra , the flagship of IGT’s slot machines . The game was so successful in land-based casinos that IGT was convinced to create a version for online gambling halls as well. Its popularity is due to the ease with which the free spins bonus can be activated. Cleopatra is such a popular slot that it has been cloned countless times. But the original is only her.
We could not close our overview with the most famous slots ever without mentioning her, the mother of all slots: the Liberty Bell . Invented in 1985 by a mechanic, Charles Fey , Liberty Bell is the first mechanical slot in history.
The original had the classic slot where to insert the coins, at the top, small reels in the center and the table with the winning combinations at the bottom. To play, after inserting the coins, you had to pull a lever on the right.
Among the symbols of Liberty Bell there were horseshoes, stars, the suits of the cards (spades, diamonds, hearts but curiously not flowers) and the liberty bell in fact, the bells of freedom. Just three Liberty Bell symbols represented the highest win ever, which at the time amounted to 50 cents.
This slot machine remained as it is until 1910, when Fey created Operator Bell , a slightly modified version with fruit symbols. Today Liberty Bell and Operator Bell have been replaced by more modern slot machines, but the original Liberty Bell can still be found at Liberty Belle Saloon in Reno, Nevada.
