Top 10 Slots Casinos

The first slot machines in Scotland appeared in pubs and seaside amusement arcades in the early 1960s.  Back then, in Scotland, the slot machine was called a "puggy" or "puggie" or a “fruit machine”.  In fact, we used the terms puggy and fruit machine in Scotland until online casinos emerged on the internet in the late 1990s.  After that, we adopted imaginative American terminology and now, almost everyone uses the term "slots".

Anyway, it wasn’t until the 1980s and 90s that we saw a significant progress in slot machine technology.  The development of video technology gave rise to more alluring fruit machine-style games with captivating themes.  Slot machines have continued to become more enticing, with the inclusion of generous jackpots and exciting bonus games.   

In 2018, slots are the Scottish player’s preferred casino game.  Compared to the traditional casino games of roulette and blackjack, more Scots are choosing to play slots.

In the ranking list below, the top casinos all have their own unique benefit for the player.  If you scroll down below the list, you will see my explanation of the benefits of each casino for slots players.

WHICH SLOTS CASINO?

Above, you will see my 2019 list of the Top 10 Online Slots Casinos for Scottish players. 

The main variables that I take into account are value for money of welcome bonuses, casino promotions and security. 

I also look at whether a casino is supporting the Scottish economy in some way.  This isn't the most important variable.  However, it can be a tie-breaker.

1.  MANSION CASINO

Playtech Casino

Playtech fans will be bowled over by Mansion Casino’s mesmerising selection of slots.   With a staggering choice of around 50 progressive jackpots, you are assured to find a selection of slot machine that keeps you entertained.

Playtech has a large game development centre in Dundee.  The Dundee-based software and games publishing company, YoYo games, was acquired by Playtech in 2015 for £10.65 million.

Substantial Welcome Bonus Offers

Mansion provides a choice of 2 substantial welcome bonuses.  There’s the 100% Up to £200 welcome bonus.  For High Rollers, Mansion Casino offers a mouth-watering welcome bonus of 50% Up to £5000.

The wagering requirements for these bonuses are low (40x B and 45x B, respectively).  It gets even better because there are hardly any excluded or lower contributing slots, when you are playing through your bonus.

2.  BGO

Multi-platform , including Playtech Games

There are 3 areas in the BGO website.  BGO Casino offers primarily Playtech slots.  The BGO Games area offers NetEnt slots.  In the BGO Vegas, you have slots from a multitude of developers.

BGO is another site, where you have access to a ton of progressive jackpot games, giving you the potential to win life-changing sums of money.

A favourite with Scottish players, BGO is a multi-platform casino, offering a myriad of enchanting slots.  In addition, Paris Hilton is the enchanting face of BGO. 

Fun Fact:  Did you know that Paris Hilton is believed to have Scottish ancestry?  In fact, she may have a tentative connection with Scottish Royalty!   

Proper Free Spins

BGO starts you off with 10 Free Spins.  They are really free because you don’t need to deposit money to get them and there are no wagering requirements on the spins.  To get the Free Spins, all you have to do is register and confirm your mobile number.

3.  ALL BRITISH CASINO

Multi-platform

Established in 2013, AllBritishCasino is a British-themed online casino that has gone from strength to strength.  As you would expect from a British themed casino, hospitality is one of AllBritish Casino’s strengths.

When you sign up, you can get a Welcome Bonus of 100% Up to £100.  The wagering requirements for the bonus are 35x B, which is much lower than the industry average.

You’ll also receive 100 Bonus Spins (if your deposit is for £20 or more) which can be played on Wild Wild West, Shangri-La or Starburst.

 

Cashback is Coming

It gets even better.  My contact at AllBritishCasino has revealed that they intend to introduce a 10% cashback offer in the New Year.  This is clear move by AllBritishCasino to join the elite in the online casino industry.  I will provide details on the cashback offer as soon as I know more.

4.  MR GREEN

Multi-platform

Sponsors of Celtic Football Club, Mr Green is an aesthetically pleasing multi-platform casino boasting over 400 slots.  Even if you are not a Bhoys fan, you should appreciate that Mr Green is helping to strengthen our Premier League.

Mr Green gives you a bonus of 100% Up to £100 on joining.  You also receive 100 Bonus Spins.  The minimum deposit to receive your bonus spins is £20.

 

High-End VIP Club

Mr Green is known for its exclusive high-end VIP club, known as Club Royale.  Not anyone can get into Club Royale.  You only get in by invitation. 

Club Royale members receive a load of perks, such as instant withdrawals, increased deposit limits, lower wagering requirements, a personal account manager and Bespoke promotions.  If you get into Club Royale, you will also get invited to exclusive hosted events and you gain access to world-wide prestigious events

5.  LEO VEGAS

Multi-platform

A multi-award winning, multi-platform casino, LeoVegas currently presents around 600 slots. 

When you sign up to LeoVegas, you receive 20 Free Spins.  You receive these just for signing up.  There is a wagering requirement (of 35x B) on the Free Spins but you don’t need to deposit money.

If you choose to deposit money, you receive a Welcome Bonus of 100% Up to £100 and 20 Bonus Spins.  You get this mouth-watering deal for your first 4 deposits.

 

Maximalism

LeoVegas originated in Sweden. 

With over 600 slots and a Welcome Package adding up to £400, 20 Free Spins and 80 Bonus Spins, LeoVegas has clearly broken away from the Swedish tradition of minimalism.

6.  ROYAL PANDA

Multi-platform

You get a kick start with 10 Bonus Spins just for signing up at Royal Panda.  If you choose to deposit money, you get offered a Welcome Bonus of 100% Up to £100.

I bet the Royal Family hasn’t ever given you a deal like that!

This is a multi-platform casino that is constantly adding popular slots from an assortment of the most popular software developers.  

 

Value Promotions

Royal Panda offers regular value promotions.  You accumulate Loyal Panda Points, just for playing your favourite games. Depending on how many points you accumulate, you can redeem your points for anything from free spins to a holiday for 2 in Macao.

Royal Panda also gives you boost every weekend in the form of their in-demand Friday Bamboo Bonus.  The deal is a 50% matched deposit bonus up to £150 every Friday.

7.  GENESIS

Multi-platform

In the beginning, there were no slot machines.  Today, Genesis Casino boasts a stunning array of 600+ slots by top-notch developers, such as Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n Go, Evolution and NextGen and more…..

You can get off to a sublime start with the Genesis Welcome Bonus.  Genesis Casino offers players a first deposit welcome bonus of 100% up to £100 and 300 Bonus Spins.  

 

Weekly Promotions

You also get outstanding, weekly promotional offers.  For example, if you deposit and bet £10 between Thursday and Sunday, you qualify for Bonus Spins on Monday.

Another excellent promotion is the Weekly Bonus Mission.  All you have to do, is deposit £50 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.  Then, on Friday, receive a deposit bonus.

8.  RIZK

Multi-platform

At Rizk, you have a fun super-hero themed online casino with a thrilling selection of slots that have been created by a range software developers, including NetEnt, Evolution Gaming, Play’n’go, Microgaming, NYX, Betsoft and WMS.

You can play your favourite slots at Rizk - Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Immortal Romance, Wolf Run, Mr. Vegas and Tomb Raider.

The Welcome Bonus is a nice 100% Up to £100 with 50 Bonus Spins.  In addition, Rizk offer plenty of promotions including the much-acclaimed Wheel of Rizk. 

 

Wheel of Rizk

The Wheel of Rizk is similar to the Wheel of Fortune.  There are prizes of different values around the wheel.  When you are playing your normal games, a progress bar fills up.  Once the progress bar is completely filled, you get to spin the Wheel of Rizk.

So, basically, you get extra prizes just by playing normally.  So, you are not taking any extra rizks when you spin the Wheel of Rizk.  In addition, there are no wagering requirements on money that you have earned playing the Wheel of Rizk.

9.  CASUMO

Multi-platform

Casumo offers the cream of the crop of online slots.  A multi-platform casino, Casumo offer slots from NetEnt, Quickspin, Microgaming, Play’n GO, Thunderkick, WMS, Greentube, Bally, Barcrest, Shuffle Master and IGT.

Casumo first came on the scene in 2012 with the claim that they “exist to erase boredom”.  Casumo have conducted a survey that shows that Glasgow is the worst place for boredom in Scotland. 

 

Thrilling Promotions

They help erase boredom by offering exciting promotions, such as the Casumo Adventure, and the Casumo Challenge. 

The Casumo Adventure is an innovative and exciting loyalty points system. The idea is that you gather valuables by racking up points.  This enables you to visit new planets.  While you are playing, you acquire rewards, such as free plays and real cash.

The Casumo Challenge is a race in which the highest ranking players win valuable prizes.  Casumo also have Reel Races that start every hour.
