Players often ask us to list the best slots online at, and surprisingly, this can be quite a difficult question to answer!

There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration, how do you qualify the popularity of a slot? Many of our players believe that the best slots online are the ones with the highest win potential, others believe it’s the one played by the highest number of players. On the other hand, some believe that the best slots online are the ones that had the highest amount of real money bets.

This month, for the first time, we’re giving you an insight into the most played slots in the UK at

This list is ordered by the number of individual players who placed bets on these slots in January 2020.



In number one position this month, it’s the Play’ N Go slot Book of Dead. This game maintains the top spot for the third month running, and as one of the best slots online, this comes as no surprise.

In November 2019, we launched a brand-new no deposit sign-up offer. Everyone who registers at receives 10 bonus spins on Book of Dead, no deposit required! This is one of the reasons that this fantastic slot remains the most popular game here at TradaCasino.

Book of Dead is a seriously impressive slot game, with high definition animations and quick, smooth performance, it became an instant hit with slot players.

You can win up to 5000x your bet on this slot, meaning that even a 10p slot spin could bag you up to £500 (if you’re lucky!). This slot is considered high volatility, which means there can be long losing streaks in search of that big hit. So, players beware – while this might be one of the best slots online, this isn’t one for the faint-hearted!



This slot has been the most played online slot at for over five years!* This is quite an incredible achievement by NetEnt, who released the slot back way back in 2012.

Back in 2012 there was less competition, and NetEnt was releasing seriously impressive content. So, it’s no surprise that Starburst was one of the best slots online when it was first released, but what is more impressive is that it remains just as popular to this day.

Now, in 2020, with competition from the likes of Pragmatic Play, Big Time Gaming and Quickspin releasing some of the best slots online, the continuing popularity of Starburst is a massive achievement. We don’t see this slot dropping down the rankings anytime soon.


Fruity Friends first launched at in November 2019. It is exclusively available to operators who use the Aspire platform, so we were lucky enough to bring this to our players for the first time just three months ago!

Fruity Friends is a 3-row, 5-reel slot game with up to 25 paylines. It’s one of the few remaining slots where you can choose the amount of paylines you want to play, allowing to place bets from as little as 1p! While this slot hasn’t taken the top spot in our ‘Best Slots Online’ list, it’s definitely worth taking it for a spin.

There are two bonus features in this game, one is the ‘Free Spins’ round (which you unlock by collecting 3 or more orange symbols on the reels).

The other is the ‘Fruity Field’ bonus round, this is triggered by collecting a strawberry on both reel 1 and reel 5. This is a pick-and-click game where you can unlock cash prizes and additional multipliers. The game is a lot of fun, so I recommend trying this one out with the free spin winnings from your no deposit sign-up offer!

This game has been around for a few years now, so the fact that it remains in the top 5 in our ‘Best Slots Online’ list a real achievement for the team at Neogames.


I know what you’re thinking, what’s the difference between Book of Dead and Legacy of Dead?

Yes, Legacy of Dead is essentially a remake of the classic slot you read about earlier. There is one key difference though, and that difference lies in the free spins round.

In the Legacy of Dead free spins round, you can trigger additional 8 free spins when you land 3 or more scatter symbols. When this happens, an additional expanding symbol is chosen at random. Thereby giving you the chance to collect up to 9 expanding symbols depending on how many times you manage to re-trigger the free spins. In Book of Dead, you cannot collect additional expanding symbols, and that therein lies the main difference between these two slots.

This slot is also high on the volatility scale, so while it’s possible to hit wins of up to 5000x your bet, there can be losing streaks!

This slot was only released in the last month, so for it take #4 in our ‘Best Slots Online’ list is a huge achievement. I think we’ll be seeing Legacy of Dead move even further up the list next month.


Play’ N Go are really smashing the competition this month, with three of their titles in our top five most played slots in January!

This slot was released in 2017 and has been a firm favourite with players ever since.

This is your classic 3-reel slot machine, with 5 fixed paylines. The slot features a devilish ‘Fire Joker’ symbol which acts as the wild and can appear anywhere on the three reels.

This is the closest you will get to a ‘fruit machine’ in a modern-day slot. Featuring classic symbols such as stars, bars, lemons and cherries, this slot is easier to play and much more recognisable to old-school slots fans.

Fire Joker features a ‘Wheel of Multipliers’ feature, which is the top attraction of this game. This is triggered when you fill all three reels with matching symbols and can boost your win by up to 10x your initial bet!

This slot is also medium on the volatility scale, so it will keep your bankroll going a little longer than the likes of Book of Dead and Legacy of Dead.


So, that completes the January list of our best slots online! We will follow up next month with a list of our most popular content for February 2020. Pop back to our blog to learn more about the best slots online, and check out our in-depth reviews in the near future. Thanks for reading!
