With the summer Olympics taking place in Rio, what better way is there to get in the spirit of the most famous sporting competition on Earth than by playing Olympic slots? Check out which slots won gold, silver and bronze medals in this race for the title of the best Olympics themed slot. Ready, steady, go!
I love this one! Playtech launched Wild Games in 2012 just in time of London Olympics. This beautifully animated online slot features three cute animals taking part in the Olympics: a bulldog as a swimmer, a cheetah as a sprinter and a hippopotamus as a gymnast. Apart from amazing visual presentation, Wild Games slot offers Wilds, Free Spins and a variety of amazing Bonus rounds: Win a Medal Bonus, Freestyle Swim Bonus, 100m Dash Bonus and Balance Beam Bonus, each featuring marvelous animations. This game is definitely the best Olympics themed slot I’ve ever player and deserves the gold medal in this competition! And remember: “This year only the toughest, wildest and fittest will gather to compete and win it all.”
The silver medal goes to Endorphina’s brand new 2016 Gladiators slot. 2016 Gladiators is a 5-reel, 21-payline slot inspired by the Olympic Games and it‘s not a coincidence that the release date matches the opening day of the Olympic Games. This game is Endorphina´s tribute to this major sporting event, featuring some of the most prominent Olympic disciplines in the symbols and the design of the game. The game features a few nice special features, including Wilds, Scatters and ands exciting Free Spins feature with a x2 multiplier. Prepare your trainers and break your personal big win record with 2016 Gladiators slot!
Another Playtech slot based on summer Olympic games theme, Golden Games, was released a year after the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It’s not as good as Wild Games, but it is still very entertaining and I decided to award it with the bronze medal. This 5-reel, 25-payline slot features symbols representing a sample of the myriad sports and symbols that are common to the Olympics, but unfortunately the graphics are rather poor. However, Golden Games offers a number of nice special features, such as Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins with a x2 multiplier and a Gamble game. Don’t judge a book by its cover and give this game a go, asit can bring you nice prizes!
