Popular themes for online slot games

William HillYou have to give it to the makers of online slot games, they sure do know how to keep things interesting. Never ones to rest on their laurels even after a smash hit, they keep churning out game after game, and somehow manage to make sure that new two slots look, nor feel exactly the same. By and large, this is a testament to the kind of inspired imagination and boundless creativity that leads to a whole world of different themes, and opens up the doors for gaming fans like us to place ourselves at the heart of the action in ancient worlds, mystical lands or perhaps even your favourite blockbuster movies. The number of games is so huge in fact, that we doubt there exists anywhere a single, comprehensive list of every current slot machine. Even visiting William Hill online games, we lost count somewhere around the 200 mark, and we’re convinced there must be more out there that even that site doesn’t have. So, rather than trying to list every single game, we thought it might be a good idea instead to look at the most popular themes for online slot games.

The classics

For those occasions when we want the glamour of a real world casino without actually playing other traditional casino games, there’s always slot machines like BIg Vegas, and a slew of others themed around the US gambling capital.


Slot games based on blockbuster movies continue to enjoy an enduring popularity. Among the high-paying options, you’ll find games like Jurassic Park, Batman, Ghostbusters, and even everyone’s favourite friendly ghost, Casper. It doesn’t end there of course, and if you’re a movie buff, you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Irish charm

The good old Irish leprechaun is an obvious mascot for the slot world. With their symbols of four leaf clovers, pots of gold at the ends of the rainbow, and a certain Irish charm, they form the basis of games like Rainbow Riches, Emerald Isle, Luck O’ The Irish and an abundance of similar slot games.

Land of the Pharaohs

Much as with classic Ireland, Ancient Egypt, with its images of grand pyramids, regal pharos and gold galore, plays a prominent role in a number of games. Among the more well known, you’ll find Cleopatra, Pharaoh's Fortune, and Crown of Egypt.

Knights of the Round Table

Still sticking with the history theme, online casinos are fond of promoting games with a medieval twist. Lancealot, Black Knight and Merlin’s Millions are popular choices for those based on the tales of Camelot’s most famous faces. Speaking of which...

Famous Faces

From pop and rock stars like The King, Elvis Presley and face-painted rock gods Kiss, to the likes of Bruce Lee, Evel Knievel and even pro wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan, many a famous figure have loaned their name and likeness to game makers for our entertainment. And that’s just for starters. From computer and board games to superheroes and even games unique to the slots, whatever you’re into, we’re certain there’ll be a game about it.
