Best Slots of 2004

This past year has been a fantastic year for online slot players. We saw the biggest ever online jackpot of US$1,779,827.44 hit on Major Millions by Joaquim M. We also saw a real surge in the amount of new video slots. As we do every year we have taken a look back at the best new slot machines that were released in 2004.

Slot Machine of the Year 2004 - Tomb Raider (Microgaming)

Arriving in October at all Microgaming casinos the Tomb Raider video slot was the first ever online slot to officially license a major brand. The game also was the first 15 line video slot online and has not one but two great bonus features.

All of the sights and sounds you would expect from a slot machine based on the popular video games and motion pictures are there on the reels. The free spin bonus awards players with 10 free games where all wins are tripled. Free games can be re-won for an unlimited amount of free game action.

The second bonus is the Treasure Bonus where you get to raid a tomb and collect a range of bonus awards. Overall the game sets a new level of online slot excitement and tops it off with a 112,500 coin top jackpot.

The Best of the Rest

5 Reel Progressives (Microgaming)

This year Microgaming released five reel version of all of their progressive slots. This included Cash Splash, Major Millions and Fruit Fiesta. All offer the same jackpots as their three reel versions. No you have two ways to go for the jackpot on each of the games.

Rapid Fire Jackpots (Wagerlogic)

Everyone would like to win a progressive but how many of us actually do. The Rapid Fire Jackpot slots make the chance of winning a progressive much more likely. All of the games are five reel, nine line slot and all are connected to a randomly hit progressive. Jackpots go off on an almost hourly basis. Games include Dr Love, Sirens, Coral Cash & Dolphin King.

The Oracle (Wagerlogic)

Out of all of the software providers Wagerlogic released the most new games this year. The Oracle offers great 5 reel, 9 line action with a free spin bonus game. Get the scattered crystal balls and win 5, 10 or even 20 free spins with all wins paid at triple the pay table value. Top jackpot is 4,000 coins.

Tunzamunni (Microgaming)

The first progressive slot aimed straight at the low rollers. Tunzamunni is a three reel, single line slot with a nickel coin size and a five coin maximum bet. The jackpots start at $10,000 and already we have seen one player walk away with a US$17,899.10 jackpot - not bad for a nickel slot!

Editors Note

It has been a great year for online slot players with more and more choices available compared with the relatively small collection of slots that were online in previous years. We are sure that 2005 will bring bigger and better games again plus, we have some very exciting additions planned for the year ahead. Best wishes for the festive season and good luck in all of your slot play!
