Most Popular Games of 2020
Although Foxy Games doesn’t hold awards ceremonies, we think that it’s hugely important to recognise achievements, innovation, and creativity, which is why we’ve chosen to compile a list of the most popular games of 2020 according to our players’ activity.
It’s also a great way to show you what other members of Foxy Games have been up to in the last year so that if you’ve yet to take a spin on their favourite titles, it’s probably high time that you did.
Along with the most played games of 2020, we’ve also included a Top 10 of the year’s best slot releases. So, get ready to feast your eyes on some of the hottest slots around!
Top 10 Games
While you’ll find hundreds of top online slots to choose from at Foxy Games, and well as Slingo titles and Foxy’s Jackpots, 7 out of 10 of the games that proved to be the biggest hits with our members this year are slots, including one that you won’t find anywhere else!
- Slingo Rainbow Riches
- Big Banker Deluxe
- Return of Kong Megaways
- Buffalo Rising Megaways
- Well Well Well
- Foxy Foxy Foxy
- King Kong Cash
- Monopoly Slingo
- Slingo Reel Extreme
Since NetEnt launched Starburst at the beginning of 2012, it has proved to be one of the software developer’s most enduring and popular slot games.
Its colourful cosmic theme combined with its Starburst Wilds and re-spins features ensure that everyone receives a dazzling and mesmerising playing experience.
Slingo Rainbow Riches
Slingo Rainbow Riches takes the original Slingo formula created by Gaming Realms and mixes it up with one of Barcrest’s (and the world’s) favourite slots, Rainbow Riches.
Online bingo enthusiasts love it as much as casino players as it requires you to create lines across a grid. There are also plenty of bonus features like Pots of Gold, Wishing Well, Cash Crop, Road to Riches, and Magic Toadstool.
Big Banker Deluxe
Big Banker Deluxe by CR Games is a 5-reel slot with 10 paylines that you can play for as little as 50p per spin and as much as £20.
The highlight of the slot is the Big Banker Feature which gives you three options to choose from and just ten seconds in which to use them. Cash amounts that are offered can be banked or rejected, and you could also be given the chance to extend the timer by up to ten seconds.
Return of Kong Megaways
The Megaways game mechanic that was originally invented by Big Time Gaming is now licensed to several big software developers.
Blueprint Gaming has probably made the most use of it, and the brand’s Return of Kong Megaways bears testament to its considerable success.
The slot features everyone’s favourite giant gorilla and gives you as many as 117,649 ways to create wins.
As for bonuses, there’s the Mystery Kong Feature, a Free Spins Bonus, and a Golden Monkeys Feature, and there’s even a Cascading Symbols Feature that offers unlimited win multipliers!
Buffalo Rising Megaways
Buffalo Rising Megaways is another Blueprint Gaming slot that struck a chord with our players in 2020.
This wilderness-themed, 6-reel slot includes a choice of free spins bonuses with differing amounts of volatility, transforming symbols, and symbol drops.
If you strike it lucky in the Free Spins Bonus, you could get to take home prizes as big as 10,000x your total bet!
Well Well Well
Throwing coins into a wishing well is said to bring you good luck, and maybe this is why the Well Well Well slot has made it into this year’s Top 10 at Foxy Games?
The Wishing Well scatter symbol can unlock the Free Spins Bonus where you can win up to 20 free spins using special Wonder Reels that only feature medium and high-value symbols.
Trigger the Golden Well Bonus, and you’ll get to send a bucket down into the well to try and fill it with submerged coins.
Foxy Foxy Foxy
Foxy Foxy Foxy is our very own slot game whose star is, of course, our Foxy.
It’s one of several games that gives you a chance to win one of three Foxy Jackpots – Go Dutch, Winner Takes All, and Foxy’s Sharer.
King Kong Cash
Blueprint Gaming’s King Kong Cash is a comical 5-reel slot that you can play on all device types for as little as 20p.
Its popularity has been helped by the game’s nine bonus features, four of which can be randomly awarded to gain re-spins, matching symbols, and extra wilds.
The most exciting special feature, however, is the Big Monkey Bonus in which there’s the potential to grab a whopping 1,000x your stake.
This year has been an exciting one for the team at Gaming Realms who are constantly coming up with new and exciting ways to vary their winning Slingo formula.
Monopoly Slingo is based on the popular family board game, and the playing grid is made up of Monopoly cards rather than numbers.
You also get to move a counter around the board by rolling dice which allows you to visit familiar Monopoly destinations such as Free Parking and Go to Jail.
Slingo Reel Extreme
Slingo Reel Extreme is not for the fainthearted due to its lightning-quick gameplay.
However, it would appear that the fast pace of the game is a big plus for Foxy Games members who simply can’t get enough of it.
Linked games aim to speed up your spins while bonus symbols can be carried over to the end of the round. Plus, if you collect at least three bonus symbols, you get to play the Win Spins Bonus where you can choose from options like 16 Win Spins with a 20x multiplier and 4 Win Spins with an 80x multiplier.
Best New Releases of 2020
This year turned out to be another incredible year for the online gaming community thanks to a flurry of new releases from both major and minor software suppliers such as Blueprint Gaming, Pragmatic Play, and Red Tiger Gaming.
Blueprint Gaming wowed us with Diamond Mine Extra Gold, Deal or No Deal Lightning Spins, Genie Jackpots Wishmaker, 7’s Deluxe Jackpot King, and what some players would say is the best Megaways slot ever – Buffalo Rising Megaways Jackpot King – which offers up to 117,649 ways to win and no less than three progressive jackpots.
We also enjoyed three new titles from Red Tiger – 10001 Nights, Wild Wild Riches, and Cash Volt – with Cash Volt boasting a magnificent top prize of 2,5000x your stake.
As always, there was an avalanche of Christmas-themed slots in the run-up to the festive season, but Santa King Megaways by Inspired Gaming was the one that stole the hearts of players at Foxy Games.
Wild Wild Riches from Pragmatic Play also proved to be extremely popular thanks to its 96.77% RTP, max win of 4,608x your stake, free spins bonus, win multipliers, and three fixed jackpots.
We hope that you’ve enjoyed reading all about the most popular slots and successful slot debuts of 2020. Perhaps, you’ve already played some of them or have been inspired to try a couple out after reading this article?
Either way, you can count on Foxy Games to bring you all the latest titles from some of the world’s most exciting software suppliers.
2021 is shaping up to be another exciting year for online slots fans thanks to a bevvy of upcoming releases such as Shamrock Holmes Megaways from All41 Studios and Microgaming, Punch Club by Peter and Sons, and Forest Queen Jackpots from Yggdrasil Gaming.
