Slot stars that deserve their own series
Sometimes online slot studios just get it right, developers create such a memorable character that they become part of a much larger entity than just one single game. NetEnt gave the world Gonzo, Play’n GO created Rich and Cat Wilde and Pragmatic Play invented John Hunter.
These wonderfully designed characters (and so many more) have struck such a chord with online slot enthusiasts and as a result, they’ve become brand ambassadors, eventually earning sequels, spawning a much-loved online slot series and growing even greater in popularity.
However, there are some online slot characters out there that are equally as impressive but haven’t yet earned themselves a sequel or series for whatever reason. Below is our list of slot stars that we genuinely believe deserve their own series in the not-so-distant future!
Step right up, step right up! The first character in our list of slot stars that deserve their own series is eccentric circus ringmaster Dr Fortuno. This strange fellow runs a carnival of curiosities that features wild acts the Water Witch, the two-headed Night Twins and Fire head.
We know that there can’t just be three acts in Dr Fortuno’s troupe, there has to be so many more quirky characters yet to discover. The original Yggdrasil slot is genuinely a lot of fun to play and giving us a sequel (or even better an entire series) is the only way we’ll be satisfied!
Agent Destiny isn’t quite James Bond, but the suave Play’n GO spy is probably the closest we’re ever going to get to seeing 007 appear in an online slot game (despite the fact there are James Bond slot machines that have made people millionaires in casinos across America).
The 2020 slot introduces us to Agent Destiny and gives us an idea of who he is, as well as who his allies and enemies are… But we don’t really find out much more than that at all. What we’re really looking for is an action-packed spy-themed slot that takes us on an undercover mission with Agent Destiny, is that too much to ask for?
We appreciate Alice Cooper is a global rock star, and not an original slot character, but his appearance in new online slot Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness is genuinely incredible! If you’ve not played this Play’n GO slot we highly recommend you give it a go ASAP!
Upon first loading up this slot, Alice Cooper appears chained up to the right of the game reels, but when players land 3 key symbols they’ll trigger the Alice Cooper Mega Wild. This sees Alice jump dramatically onto the game screen, marching along the reels spinning a cane and raising his fist in the air. Trust us when we say it looks seriously cool.
We’ve never seen a branded online slot game featuring a real-life celebrity receive a sequel, but maybe it’s time Play’n GO started with Alice Cooper because they’ve got a real hit on their hands with Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness.
Sparky & Shortz
Who would’ve thought that a pile of metal and wires programmed by a whole host of 1s and 0s would be so likeable, other than Wall-E of course! Sparky & Shortz, a robotic little and large duo have truly captured our hearts, despite having only just been introduced to us.
This 2021 Play’n GO slot sees players team up with the two robots to help them save their doomed planet Alpha Labori from the brink of extinction! We desperately want to see them star in a sequel (or two) so that we can follow their planetary rescue mission further!
Another new face in the online slot world, SG Digital’s Dave Lame is a quirky character we’d very much like to see return in their very own slot sequel.
In his first slot Dave Lame Bad Magician, this hapless chap shows off five dodgy magic tricks if players are lucky enough to trigger a bonus. You’ll get to see him pull a rabbit out of a hat, perform a card trick, take part in a blind knife-throwing act and even escape from a tank of water, much like the famous magician Harry Houdini who created and performed the trick from 1911 until his death fifteen years later.
There’s really not too many comedy characters that appear in online slots, Dave Lame is a breath of fresh air and we’d love to see more of him in the coming years… There’s lots more to come, we’ve not even seen him pull doves from his sleeves or float mid-air yet!
