What are the top slots themes in Canada?

Canadians like variety. This is why the most popular casino slots have different themes. In fact, as you peruse our PlayOJO popular slots category, you’ll encounter themes like…

Fruit Slots

Also known as “classic slots”, these games are a favourite for their simple, straightforward gameplay. They typically have colourful graphics, 3 reels and images of fruits (e.g. cherries, lemons, plums, etc.), 7’s, bars and/or bells on the reels. An example of a popular fruit slot is Play’n GO’s Fire Joker.

You can play with wolves in the tundra, journey deep into the amazon jungle with jaguars, snakes, and monkeys, or enter the wild plains of Africa with tigers, elephants and rhinos. An example of a popular animal slot is Pragmatic’s Wolf Gold.

Factors influencing slot popularity

Various factors can determine a slot’s popularity level. Some of the factors that influence slot popularity for Canadian players include:

  • Theme – While certain themes like Ancient Egypt and animals are popular, it’s typically how the theme is used throughout the game experience - graphics, animations, features and soundtracks – that bolster its popularity. Usually, the more present the theme’s concept is throughout the game, the better the experience.
  • Gameplay mechanics – Gone are the days of slot machines with only standard spinning reels and rudimentary graphics. Many of today’s popular slots are designed with state-of-the-art technology and equipped with innovative mechanics like cascading reels, cluster pays, and Megaways, all of which provide players with the potential for additional winning chances.
  • Unique Features – Many Canadians love online slots with great features and so do we. Wilds, free spins, re-spins, multipliers, minigames, expanding symbols, expanding reels, in-game jackpots and progressive jackpots all play a role in how well a game is received by OJOers.
  • Return-to-Player (RTP) – All slots have an RTP percentage. This represents the amount the game will theoretically return to a player over millions of spins over the long term. In short, slots with higher RTP percentage theoretically boost your chances of winning. As such, it should come as no surprise that high RTP slots (typically those with 96% RTP and higher) tend to be popular.
  • Volatility – This is a slot’s risk and reward ratio. It indicates how frequently a slot is likely to payout and the size of the payout. There are three main types of slot volatility: Low (high hit frequency with small sized payouts), High (low hit frequency with larger-sized payouts) and Medium (moderate hit frequency with a mix of modest sized wins and a chance for higher payouts). Of the three, high volatility slots have become a go-to favourite for many Canadian players.
  • Provider Reputation – The most popular slots online are the product of reputable and award-winning software providers. These providers are licensed, highly respected in the iGaming industry and their software regularly undergoes rigorous fairness checks. Popular slots providers also tend to be at the forefront of online slots technology and ensure their games are fully optimized for seamless desktop and mobile play.

It’s no coincidence that many popular slots online are titles from the same providers. While there are many software providers in Canada with excellent games, top contributors to OJO’s library of top slots include:

Popular Slots FAQ

There are hundreds of popular slots, with Book of Dead, Sweet Bonanza, Madame Destiny Megaways, Piggies and the Bank Mega Fire Blaze, and Big Bass Splash being just the tip of the iceberg.

OJO says, if you’re seeking the most popular slot games in Canada, check out the games in our “Most Popular Slots” Category.

Book of Dead, Immortal Romance, Thunderstruck II, Big Bass Bonanza, and Great Rhino Megaways, are all examples of popular high volatility slots. In fact, if you’re wondering where to start the fun, most Megaways slots fall into the high volatility category. Choosing any one of them is likely to provide you with an ideal introduction to this variance level.

However, a word of caution if you’re new to high volatility slots play. Although with these games there is a chance to land sizeable payouts, these payouts do not occur often. To outlast the dry spells that are common with these games (sometimes you can play hundreds of spins without triggering the special features that typically lead to the larger payouts), you will need to have a sizeable budget. These games aren’t for everyone. It’s important to know your limits and not to play beyond your means.

Hmm…that’s never an easy one to answer. What is considered “best” to one player isn’t the same for another, as preferences vary widely.

To determine what is the best slot game for you, first start by choosing an online slot with a theme you like. From there, investigate the game’s thematic concept, mechanics, features, RTP, and volatility. Reading reviews about the games that interest you can also provide you with an inside look at the type of experience they offer. Knowing what you like and what types of slots work best with your bankroll is key to finding the best slots in Canada for you.
