Visit any online slot catalogue and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d entered a virtual zoo. Slot providers from across the world love animal-themed slots, and it’s fair to say we do too. While the dog may be “man’s best friend”, when it comes to slots we’re pretty friendly with dogs, cats, elephants, rhinos, wolves, buffalo, and many, many more.
Plenty of inspiration in online slots has come from the animal kingdom and here at Moon Bingo we have dozens available, ready and waiting to be played. But what are the best animal themed slots? Like with the Wild West or Ancient Egypt, we all have our favourites when it comes to a particular theme, and an animal theme is no different. Below we’ve highlighted the five best animal themed slots to enjoy right now…
Raging Rhino takes players on an African safari and many of our players enjoy this purely based upon the 4,096 different ways to win. However, the theme hugely elevates this six reeled slot from WMS Gaming. Dropping you into the heart of the African savannah, there’s £250,000 on offer, as well as the opportunity to win 1,000 times your stake through the Diamond Scatters feature.
The symbols are largely made up of animals found on safari, with the rhino the highest paying of those, with gorillas, leopards, crocodiles, and more.
A Pragmatic Play classic, Wolf old has really wowed fans over the years, and while wolves may be considered rather scary creatures, there’s nothing but love for this one. It’s a five reel slot with 25 pay lines and an incredibly picturesque theme. This slot combines the canyons of the USA with the animals you’d find on a trek through them, with the likes of eagles, horses, buffalos, and wolves all represented in the symbols that require pairing.
Where Wolf Gold really comes into its own is the free spins and money respins features, while it’s also a great slot for both novice and experienced players alike, thanks to the low minimum bet and high maximum bet available to play with. The slot carries a 96.01% RTP and is one of the best games for playing via the Moon Bingo mobile app with all the features and buttons perfectly placed for on-the-go gaming.
Eyecon really knows how to do online slots, and they have some superb ones across multiple different themes. However, one of their very finest slots comes in the form of Stampede. It’s another that drops you onto the African savannah, and the animals featured in the slot are relatively similar to that of Raging Rhino, except you’ll also find lions, cheetahs, and water buffalos.
The elephants are what you want to look out for in this slot though. Elephant symbols are scatters and can really boost your winnings with multipliers of up to 50 times your stake. The slot itself has a grand prize of £769,500 and there are a huge 243 different ways to win. The game was only released in 2017, but in just four years it’s become one of the greatest of all time.
With 1,024 different ways to win, the king of the jungle really is the gorilla in this NetEnt slot released just a few years ago. Betting starts from just 10p per spin, making it a perfect game for new players or those that prefer low stakes, while there is also plenty for those looking for the big wins too. Within the slot you’ll find some rather exotic animals spinning alongside the gorilla, with leopards, hornbills, okapis, and pangolins all joining the party and offering some nice payouts for landing them along pay lines.
Gorilla Kingdom is a 96.03% RTP slot with five reels and a number of bonus rounds, including free spins, triggered by diamond scatter symbols, as well as the symbol transform feature, which will transform gorilla symbols into a gorilla mask and boost prizes.
Fox Fire is Red Tiger’s finest effort when it comes to taking on the animal world and is a high volatility slot with an RTP of 96%. It offers a more mystical look at the animal world, with the white fox overlooking a stunning lake and beautiful sky. It’s a six reel slot with 729 different ways to win, with gemstones generally representing the symbols.
It isn’t an animal themed slot in the same context as the others mentioned within this slot, but with the fox the focal point, it felt impossible to miss this graphically divine slot out. The white fox is the symbol to land as it will boost winnings and activate reels, and is comfortably the highest paying symbol in the game.
It’s fair to say that the ram rarely gets the credit it deserves, but thanks to AGS, you can now enjoy a brilliant slot inspired by the animal. It’s a Greek style theme, with 243 different ways to win, as well as a backdrop that is simply magnificent. Every element of this slot has been thought out, and while there are few animals actually in it, the Golden Ram slot really delivers on its theme, with the Ram symbols the one that is going to provide the big bucks.
It’s a bold and bright slot with something for all budgets, while the Money Charge Jackpots can really boost your winnings and is a feature that really catapults it beyond many others in the theme. There’s a number of different jackpots available in the slot, with the chance to spin from as little as 50p.
To find all the slots mentioned above, as well as many more inspired by animals, head over to the online slots section of our site where you’ll find many more, as well as dozens of great slots across many other themes too.
