If you’re a South African who’s relatively new to the world of online video slot games you might feel a little intimidated by where to begin, how certain bonus features work, the difference between the different games, and of course, which are the best games to play. Springbok Casino has compiled a comprehensive list of some of the best online video slots 2023 for you to browse and try out.

Online casino game developer Realtime Gaming has all you need when it comes to online slots, in fact, all of our picks on this list are from the developer. If you’re a fan of the developer, that shouldn’t come as a surprise but if you’re unfamiliar with them, allow us to introduce them to you.

Without wasting any more time, let’s jump right in and countdown the top picks for the most popular online slots for 2023.

#10 – Sweet 16

While you might expect this title to be about a sweet 16th birthday party, it’s actually more about sweet treats and candied delights. Taking place on a grid with 5 reels and 3 rows, you’ll be swimming in sweets before you know it.

Lollipop Scatters symbols can appear on the grid while playing, triggering the Sweet 16 feature if you’re lucky enough, awarding you with 16 bonus spins. Morph Magic Multipliers are active during these spins which can increase up to 20x your win. If that isn’t enough for you, you’ll be able to re-trigger the feature.

#9 – Fortunate Buddha

There’s more than just fortunes looking your way in this online video slot game. Spin the reels of this title that has a progressive jackpot element and see if the Buddha favours you. There are five tiers of jackpots up for grabs which range from Mini, Minor, Major, Grand, and even Super Grand.

50 fixed pay lines will be guiding your journey on this 5-reel, 3-row online release. Gather Fortune Orbs in order to activate the Fortune Link. Triggering Orbs will remain in place as tiles begin to spin independently of one another. Any new Orbs that appear will also become sticky and activate more re-spins. Free spins are also a possibility should you manage to hit enough Scatters during a spin.

#8 – Sweet 16 Blast

We’ve already had a Sweet 16 title on the list, that’s how good they are. Following in the footsteps of the previous Weet 16 entry, this title is also all about sweets but takes it one step further, dropping players off in a world made entirely from sweets.

If you’re able to land a winning combination on the 6-reel 5-row grid, the winning icons will disappear, creating space for new images to fall in place. Cascades are the name of the game this time around. Trigger bonus spins with 4 or more Scatters where unique multipliers are active. The feature can be re-triggered for those with a sweet tooth.

#7 – Mighty Drums

Gold, drums, dragons, and jackpots are all the rage in this online slot. Taking the theme and idea of lucky coins and symbols in Chinese culture and running with it, this game will bathe you in red and gold light as you spin away on the reels.

With 243 ways to win split across the 5-reels and 3-rows, you’ll be aiming to land 3 Scatter symbols simultaneously. In doing so, you will be awarded 12 free spins where low-paying images don’t appear. Randomly, the Jackpot feature could trigger. Click a coin to reveal its value, click on more coins to try and match them and that’s how you win either the Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand Jackpot.

#6 – Cleopatra’s Gold

A true classic this one is. One of the Ancient Egyptian-themed online video slot games that have truly stood the test of time, this title is up there with Book of Dead. Classic Egyptian imagery floods the game, which is sure to excite fans of the genre.

Hit 3 Pyramid Scatters in order to trigger the free spins mode of this game. Any wins that land on the grid during this feature will be multiplied by 3. Wilds can land to help generate new and exciting wins, and if that isn’t enough to convince you to try out the game, there are progressive jackpots that can be awarded randomly.

#5 – Plentiful Treasure

You might feel as though reading through this list feels like plentiful treasure already. Spinning this online slot will see various trinkets of gold encrusted with jewels fly across the screen. Pearls can only appear in the center of the game but their Wild properties will allow them to create new potential combos.

With 243 ways to win, you’ll be hoping for a win on every spin. Hit enough Scatters to activate the free spins of this game and have the low-paying icons disappear for a few rounds. While spinning, you might activate the progressive jackpot feature which can award a Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand jackpot.

#4 – Big Cat Links

Take a trip through our African backyard and try to spot some big cats. Chase the African sunset and you won’t regret what you see. Some of the felines can appear larger than life thanks to their 2×2 and 3×3 super symbols.

If you want to win 10, 15, or 20 free spins, you’ll need to land 3, 4, or 5 Scatters icons respectively. You can also go for one of the five progressive jackpots in the game by landing 6 or more Coins on the grid. Play the mini-game and try to win either the Mini, Minor, Major, Grand, or Super Grand jackpot. Spin on 50 fixed pay lines across this 5-reel, 3-row African safari.

#3 – Fortunes Of Olympus

From the savannas of Africa to the peak of Mount Olympus, Realtime Gaming is taking us across the world. Invoke the power of the gods and seize your treasure from the monstrous beasts of Greek mythology. Five gods stand ready but which will be your deity?

Hit 3 or more Scatters in order to activate the pick feature of this title. When this feature is active, you’ll get to decide the destiny of the coming free spins. Either select 12 free spins with shifting reels, 12 bonus spins with extra wilds, or 12 free spins with win multipliers. 50 fixed pay lines will help secure your victory on this 5-reel, 4-row battlefield.

#2 – Cash Bandits

The original cops and robbers inspired title in the franchise from Realtime Gaming. If you’ve never played a game in the series or are feeling nostalgic for the one that started it all, Cash Bandits is a must-play. Break into the vault of this 5-reel, 3-row online slot to gather up as much cash and treasure as possible.

Navigate the 25 pay lines of this title while trying to gather free spins and multipliers by landing 3 Scatters on the grid. Once you’re in and the specific feature has been triggered, you’ll have a chance to win one of the two progressive jackpots.

#1 – Achilles Deluxe

It’s back to ancient Greece for the final slot on the list. We hope that you familiarised yourself with some of the gods in the previous entry because you’ll be seeing them and some new faces in this online video slot. Gorgeous graphics coupled with stunning Greek architecture mean this title is incredible to look at and play.

Spin the 5-reels and 3-rows of this title in an attempt to land a win on one of the 20 fixed pay lines. As has been the theme with this list, there is a progressive jackpot for you to claim if you’re lucky enough to trigger the feature. There are only two here so keep that in mind.
