2019 is set up to be the most impressive year yet for online slots developers. However, finding the best slots isn’t always easy. Some developers struggle to keep up, while others blaze ahead – taking the slot-playing experience to a whole new level.

With that in mind, here’s our ranking of 2019’s top 5 online casino game providers.

1. Quickspin

Sweden’s Quickspin is an innovation machine, and always seems to have a new crop of slots for gamers to try. 2019 is no exception.

Over the years, Quickspin has specialised in fantasy-themed slots like Rapunzel’s Tower, but now the developer is branching out. For instance, the Tales of Dr Doolittle brings talking animals into the picture, while The Grand conjures up 1920s elegance – with the volatility elite players need to spice up their sessions.

2. NetEnt

Also hailing from Sweden, NetEnt is always right on the cutting edge of online slot design, and 2019 could be the developer’s best year yet.

Highlights already released Temple of Nudges, which sets up the potential for huge nudge cascades in an Indiana Jones-style setting.

Other titles show NetEnt’s flair for collaborations, such as Scudamore’s Super Stakes. Designed with a racing legend, the game introduces a new “betting slip” function, where players can bet on how often certain symbols appear.

3. Red Tiger

Red Tiger slots have roared into 2019 with the kind of creativity we’ve come to expect.

Leading the way is Pirates’ Plenty, where players can plunder the Spanish Main for booty, or build a treasure map as they go, to discover the ultimate prize. And there’s Norse-style gaming in Thor’s Lightning, taking players on an epic quest to Valhalla.

On the technical side, expect more titles with Megaways, a revolutionary new payouts system. In these games, you can gamble bonuses and accumulate huge pools of free spins, potentially opening up unimaginable winnings.

4. Big Time Gaming

Big Time Gaming has made a name for itself in the past couple of years, and it has also embraced the Megaways system (which BTG actually created).

Machines like the 1980s-flavoured Final Countdown will deliver the full Megaways experience, along with some cheesy rock and innovations like roaming sticky wilds. Meanwhile, the mysterious Holy Diver brings wizards into the picture, creating a spellbinding way to enjoy a few spins on your phone.

5. Play’n GO

As ever, Play’n GO is pioneering new ways to deliver smartphone visuals.

Titles like Contact offer the same rich experience in portrait and landscape modes, while incorporating exciting cascading grid mechanisms to create plenty of winning combinations.

But if you want something more traditional, Play’n GO have always got your back. Games like Wild Falls, Queen’s Day Tilt, and Golden Colts will be familiar and accessible, while pushing the boundaries in visual and audio terms.

So keep an eye out for new games in 2019. All of these top 5 developers are set to deliver thrills and – most importantly – plenty of winning lines. It’s going to be a great year.
