Most popular slots 2020

At Gate777 we offer more than 1,200 slots. Here are the ones our players have played the most since the beginning of the year.

1. Book of Dead

With five reels and three rows, Book of Dead has a simple structure. Created by the beloved gaming software house Play’nGo back in 2014, this video slot has a high volatility and a 96.21% RTP. It comes with 10 paylines in total. You can adjust the paylines to play with anywhere from 1 to 10 active paylines at a time. But remember, more paylines means more winning combinations, which means more chances to land a win. There’s a 5,000x base game jackpot.

Book of Dead has been the most popular Egypt themed slot not just in 2020 but since its launch. Definitely a game to try if you’re looking for something new or want a time-proven game.

2. Starburst

A most simple low volatility game, Starburst has been online slot players’ favorite since its launch in 2012. Despite no bonus rounds, up to an only 3 free spins trigger, and no progressive jackpot, this slot has continued to attract incredible numbers of players, making it an all-time favorite. We think what makes this slot so special is the highly immersive visual and audio experience it offers, along with its game features such as the unique Both-Ways Win feature (paying for combinations achieved both from left to right and right to left).

Powered by none other than the most established software house NetEnt, Starburst comes with a 96.09% RTP and a potential for astronomical wins.

3. Legacy of Dead

A five reel, ten payline Egypt themed slot machine with Wilds, free spins, scatters, and expanding symbols for a ton of fun. Legacy of Dead delivers a very high volatility gaming experience, paying back a max jackpot of 5,000x your total bet. Created by Play’n Go, Legacy of Dead comes with dramatic sound effects and powerful gods and pharaohs that will capture your attention and keep you entertained for hours.

A January 2020 release, Legacy of Dead is in fact the only 2020-make in our top 5 most popular slots 2020 list – it is that good.

4. Gonzo's Quest

Released a decade ago, Gonzo’s Quest is a medium-high variance slot with a 95.97% RTP. 5 reels, 20 paylines, and a marvelous design. Gonzo’s Quest was NetEnt’s first slot to feature Avalanche Reels where reels move in a cascading way, replacing winning symbols with new ones for a chance to land consecutive wins. The multiplier increases; in the free spins round it can even reach up to 15x.

Here’s a tip for newbie and veteran slot players alike: in Gonzo’s Quest, big wins tend to be really big.

5. Mystery Reels

A Red Tiger video slot machine with 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines, Mystery Reels is a classic old-school fruit game with cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes, melons and bells, plus a couple of super fun features. A high volatility slot with a high variance, Mystery Reels has a 96.24% RTP. The most you can win is 5,000 times your total stake.

This simple slot is our fifth most popular slot in 2020. Thanks to its beautifully rendered fruit theme, it has a timeless appeal. Plus, the game features (wheel bonus and double multipliers) make it a ton of fun.
