6 Most Unique Slots
There are many different types of online slots available in our collection here at Bet UK, but despite the sheer volume of games available, there are those that manage to stand out from the crowd with distinctive aspects not seen elsewhere. In a word, these slots can be described as “unique”. This guide will explore the idiosyncrasies and unrepeatable characteristics that put certain online slots into this category, as well as suggesting a few games that you may wish to take a look at if you’re on the hunt for titles that offer something unparalleled by what has come before.
What Makes A Slot Unique?
Certain mechanics have set games apart in recent years, such as the ones found in Megaways slots, but as more and more games adopt the format, it's becoming harder and harder to become notable in the online casino industry. That said, there are still ways of making new slot games unique, whether that be through ingenious bonus rounds, outlandish themes, or other examples of in game features that think outside the box. While we never know exactly what is going to become a phenomenon in our online casino games arsenal, we do know that releases with a flair for the extraordinary are often top performers amongst our players.
What Are The Most Unique Slots?
Making a list of the most unique slots is obviously going to lead to debate, but below we’ve compiled ours based on a variety of different factors. With each one, we’ll explain exactly what makes it different from the other slots in our collection, as well as going into more depth about the precise bonus rounds and features that will be on show if you choose to play each of them.
Cop the Lot Safegrabber
While the original Cop the Lot has a few features that set it apart from other slots, Cop the Lot Safegrabber turns the dial right up to eleven. With a classic pub fruit layout, Blueprint Gaming have created a game that simultaneously meets the demands of players who enjoy land-based slots, as well as those that look for innovation in newer titles. The eponymous Safegrabber bonus will resonate with fans of ‘pick me’ style features, while the Bonus Trail can dispense a wide variety of other prizes. The board game inspired Millionaire’s Row is the pinnacle of these, as you roll the dice to try and loot as many prizes as possible before being sent to jail.
With IGT’s Ghostbusters Plus it’s very much a revolutionary feature that puts it into the category of most unique slots. Many video games and mobile apps reward players for the length of time they play for, and The Level Up system does exactly the same here. Each stage can award a variety of benefits that can themselves lead to bigger wins further down the line. The way to do so is, fittingly, by capturing ghosts and ghouls as they float around the screen. There’s also a Free Spins round that pits you against the ferocious Zuul, the supernatural ‘Gatekeeper’ from the 1984 film, where a series of varied wilds can help boost payouts as you attempt to defeat the demon once and for all.
The Great Chicken Escape
The distinctive and eccentric theme of The Great Chicken Escape is what sees it onto our list, as there are precious few other slots that combine the serious business of a PoW camp with hedonistic poultry. In fact, we’d go so far as to say there are no other slots that do this. The theme may be familiar from a popular animated film from the year 2000, but the bonuses on offer are entirely unique to this game. With various attempts to escape through tunnels, the best bonus round on offer is the Big Money Bonus, where a carousel of eggs can award huge instant cash prizes of up to 500x your stake.
The world-famous board game has been a hit at Bet UK in the form of both Monopoly Live and the innovational Monopoly Megaways. The latter doesn’t rest on its laurels of merely adapting the source material into a standard slot, as SG Interactive have implemented an abundance of original and well thought out features. Chief of these is the Monopoly Board feature, which sees Rich Uncle Pennybags stroll along the path underneath the reels with every single spin. If he lands on a property after a third cascade of the reels, a house will be added. That’s not all, as other spaces such as Stations, Utilities, GO!, Chance, and Community Chest can award a host of prizes including maximum Megaways and access to the Free Spins bonus round. As if that weren't dynamic enough, there's even a Monopoly Slingo alternative.
Pillars of Asgard
A title that came into our online casino collection below the radar, Pillars of Asgard may seem like a fairly traditional slot with an engaging theme at first glance. However, beyond the Wild Multiplier and standard Free Spins bonuses lies a feature we have never before seen in an online slot game - One Million Ways To Win. That’s right, for every scatter that you land during Free Spins, the height of the reel that they appear on will increase by one position, up to a maximum of 10. If all of the reels increase to their utmost height, then there will be one million paylines on which to win. We’re not going to say this is easy to achieve, but we have seen it happen, and the mere chance of taking advantage of this feature for yourself may well make this game intriguing as well as unique.
Last, but not least, we have this release from Play N’ Go, a slot game provider perhaps best known for the classic Egyptian-set Book of Dead. If you’re a fan of Tumbling Reels, then you may well have heard of Reactoonz. If not, then your list of favourite Cascading Reels games could be about to be hastily edited. You’ll be greeted by an array of alien-like characters who patiently wait for the reels to be spun. The aim here is to create clusters of five matching aliens to create payouts. The theme may well be enough to warrant the inclusion of Reactoonz in this list, but the bonuses cement its position. Various Quantum Leap extras can help to provide wins as you fill up the meters, but the Gargantoon and Giantoonz features can add huge symbols to the reels, sometimes with multipliers attached for significant jackpot wins.
Bet UK’s Final Thoughts
So that concludes our list of the most unique slots available to play right now here at Bet UK. As we’ve said though, the specific aspects that put a game into this category aren’t set in stone, therefore there are easily going to be titles that we’ve released over the years that have been brutally overlooked. Feel free to browse our range to find the titles that stand out in your eyes.
