Put some fame in your game with the most popular TV slots at PlayOJO, the Fair Casino!

Buddying up with hit TV shows has always been a sound strategy for slots providers. In the last decade, we’ve seen more and more official online slots from shows like Game of Thrones, Vikings, Narcos, The Voice and even Rick & Morty.

Thanks to the design and playability smarts of developers like NetEnt and Playtech, plus the ability to use characters, sounds and even video clips from the shows, these so-called branded slots are worthy of their award-winning shows.

Read on to discover what makes a good TV slot and which are winning the ratings way, then tune into PlayOJO and try them yourself!

What are TV slots?

To make an official TV slot, games providers like Blueprint Gaming and Red Tiger will licence the content – giving them the right to use the show’s name, logo, characters, soundtrack and more – from the TV production company that made the show.

They will usually coincide the release of the slot with a new season, to take advantage of the buzz around the show.

There are obvious candidates that can be turned into successful slots, and some of the biggest TV shows and movies of all time have spawned an online slot machine. But it’s not just big time TV dramas and fantasies that get the slot treatment.

Game shows like Deal or No Deal are the perfect vehicle for online gaming, as are celeb reality shows like The Voice and The Masked Singer.

And there’s even an online gaming fan base for adult animations like Rick & Morty, Beavis & Butthead and Family Guy too.

If it’s named after a show you’ve heard of, looks and sounds like the show, and it has © or trademarks all over it, then chances are, it’s a TV slot!

What’s so good about TV slots?

So what makes a great TV slot, and why would you play one when there are thousands of amazing Irish slots, ancient Egypt slots and more?

First off, the instantly recognisable and often much-loved design, graphics and sounds are obviously the big draw of these games. As these games have legal and sometimes exclusive access to copywrite-protected content, it gives them a huge edge over other slots.

Game show slots have an even bigger edge over their rivals, because there’s playability and game mechanics already built in. Check out Million Pound Drop, Britain’s Got Talent and the classic Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for some perfect examples.

Humour can also help make a TV slot more fun than usual, with slots like Family, Beavis & Butthead and Ted just some of the many which put well-known and hilarious lines to good use.

Lastly, bonus features, coz it doesn’t matter how good your slot’s graphics are, and how famous the show is, if the game doesn’t have great features, it’ll bomb.

The best TV slots providers don’t just copy-paste Free Spins and multipliers from other slots though. They will create bespoke bonus features and mini games inspired by the TV show itself. NetEnt slots like South Park slot and Ash Gaming’s X Factor slot are two such games.

Top rated TV slots online

If you’re looking for the definite and most up to date list of TV slots, you’re in luck, coz ours has the perfect mix of classic online slots and brand new releases.

We’ve taken a little artistic licence and included not just official slots of popular UK TV shows, but also official movie slots too.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

No one can deny Millionaire its status as the greatest game show ever, and the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire slot does the show justice, picking up where Chris Tarrant left off.

At PlayOJO, you’ve got 2 flavours to choose from – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Mystery Box with 243 Ways to win, and the Megaways version with up to 117649 Ways, both from Big Time Gaming.

Deal or No Deal

Deal or No Deal

Aside from Millionaire, no TV game show has had a bigger impact than Deal or No Deal, and in slot terms, it is the undisputed king of TV slot games online.

And in fact, it’s not just one slot but a whole collection of casino games made primarily by Blueprint Gaming, with a Slingo version and a live casino game called Deal or No Deal The Big Draw from Playtech too.

The main Deal or No Deal slot lends itself perfectly to progressive jackpots, but the series also caters well for fans of Megaways, bingo and scratch games.

The Masked Singer

The Masked Singer

As celebrity talent shows go, The Masked Singer had enough weirdness and wonderful moments to become an instant classic, and when we watched it, we knew we had to bring an official online slot to life.

Starring all the singers from season 2, The Masked Singer slot has a Free Games bonus, a Wild Masks feature and a chart-topping payout of £200,000. If you’re a TMS fan, check out our bingo and scratch game versions too.

Gordon Ramsey Hell’s Kitchen

Gordon Ramsey Hell’s Kitchen

A reality cooking show hosted by angry chef isn’t an obvious choice for a TV slot, but NetEnt know their onions, and have found a good recipe.

Mix 20 win lines with a Ramsey’s Wild bonus and a Team Challenge Free Spins feature, warm gently for a few minutes and you get a tasty, low volatility Michelin star feast.

Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones

Games Global was first to the punch with its Game of Thrones 234 Ways slot release, but it’s the Game of Thrones Power Stacks online slot by Slingshot Studios that has proved a far bigger hit.

Launched in 2021, this 40-line version combines primo graphics and animations with stacked symbols and the popular Link&Win bonus feature mechanic which can double the jackpot wins.



NetEnt bring Rathnar Lothbrok and his band of gritty band of Norsemen to life in slot form with their Vikings video slot, a stunning adventure with movie-grade graphics that’s packed full of innovative and complex bonus features.

We particularly like the Shield Wall mystery cluster bonus, and Raid Spins, an expanded reelset with 78,126 betways and a Hotspot feature. Join PlayOJO now and you can try the Vikings slot demo for free.

The Goonies

The Goonies

Think of cult movies from yesteryear and The Goonies will be high on most peoples’ lists. Credit to Blueprint Gaming for their faithful recreation of the 80’s pirate adventure.

Although the famous design notes are laid over a standard 20-line slot, the game is packed full of reel modifiers, bonus games and Free Spins features. Blueprint have also launched a Jackpot King version, and the new Goonies Return slot too.

Top Cat

Top Cat

Let’s move onto animated TV, starting with a classic from 1961. We can always rely on Blueprint Gaming to resurrect some iconic characters, and since the Top Cat slot was launched in 2016, it has been a cult hit, just like the TV show.

As well as all the main characters, you get stacked symbols and a hatful of reel modifiers. There’s also a Jackpot King progressive to play for, and a Top Cat Most Wanted sequel too.

Rick & Morty

Rick & Morty

Blueprint continue their form for licencing cult TV shows with their Rick & Morty slot series. The bizarrely titled Rick and Morty Wubba Lubba Dub Dub slot is just as surreal as the animated sci-fi show, with impressive graphics and loads of references that fans will enjoy.

The 20-line version comes with an astonishing NINE reel modifiers, SIX more bonus features, and a 50,000 coin max win. There’s also a Megaways version if you just can’t get enough Adult Swim-inspired gaming in your life.

Our verdict

If there’s a famous TV show or cult movie that you’ve watched to oblivion and still can’t help but switch on, there just might be a UK online slot to accompany it. Over the last few years, we’ve seen some incredible releases and TV slots providers have continued to raise the bar for graphics, gameplay and features.

Of all the hundreds to choose from, we especially love the Deal or No Deal slot series, and for Netflix-level production values, Narcos and Vikings are worth a spin too!
