High-stakes players should spin these slots next
Last week we looked at the best low-stakes slot games, but this time around we are going to take things a little less sedately and go to the other extreme. Today we are looking at those slot games which appeal to the true high roller, who thinks nothing of betting £20, £100, or even £1000 on a single spin.
Honestly, I think you folks who do this kind of gambling are nuts – but then I was known as Captain Boring down at the local pub. If you do like to play for high stakes, then these slots will provide the best opportunity to go large or go home.
Pablo Escobar certainly lived his life playing for high stakes, and it worked out pretty well for him…. for a time at least. You can now live out the billionaire drug lord fantasy by playing the exciting Narcos slot game by NetEnt, based on the Netflix TV series of the same name. High rollers with a big risk appetite can set their bet sizes to play for £400 a spin. With 243 possible paylines, the maximum you can win playing this Narcotrafico-themed game is £600,000, which should be enough for a bungalow in downtown Medellin with concealed entrances. Symbols include guns, grenades, Cessna planes and the DEA agents from the series. As a huge fan of the first 3 seasons of Narcos, I could play this one all day.
Britain’s Got Talent
This 20-line slot is as fun as the TV show after which it is named. It’s mostly wacky, sometimes it’s gaudy, but it’s always entertaining. But BGT also has one of the widest ranges of bet sizes out there. You can start with £0.01 per line, but high stakes fans can increase this all the way up to £50. With all 20 lines active, that means that if you have the stomach for it, you can bet a cool grand per spin! I would be as nervous as if I was singing in front of Simon Cowell on that kind of bet size, but hey ho. One thing high rollers might miss with the Britain’s Got Talent slot is the absence of any progressive jackpot. But with the possibility to bet £1000 a spin, there’s little to complain about in terms of high stakes.
Are you not entertained playing slots for low stakes? Then try Gladiator, the 25-payline slot from Playtech where you can bet an incredible £1250 a spin! This slot is based on the Ridley Scott epic which won no less than 5 Oscars back in the day. The graphics are a little bit dated by now, but Gladiator slot still packs a punch. The Commodus symbol has the highest value, with a payout of x5000 across 5 lines, and the maximum potential win while playing all lines is a cool x125,000. You will be as rich as a Roman emperor if you hit that playing the maximum bet size.
Another Oscar-winning movie-themed slot from Playtech, Rocky pulls no punches in its offer to high rollers. With all 25 paylines active, the maximum bet is an amazing £250 per spin. The slot features the main characters as its symbols, including Rocky Balboa himself, Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang and that Russian dude played by Dolph Lundgren. The Knockout bonus feature is triggered fairly frequently, keeping high stakes fans in the game for longer. A max payout of x10,000 in the base game means if you land the right sucker punch you could walk away with a quarter of a million quid.
Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven
This innovative horse-racing themed slot game features everyone’s favourite pint-sized Italian. It also has a fair amount to offer for high-stakes slot fans, with a bet range between 25p and £125 a spin. There is a maximum potential payout of x194,425 per spin in the base game, and there is an extra helping of fun in the Magic Seven bonus, where you can win up to a maximum of x280 your total bet.
Are you a high-stakes, high-drama slot fan? If you are, then here are a couple of things to bear in mind. You shouldn’t play at casinos which have low payout restrictions – after all if you are risking this much cash on a single spin, and you do it strike it lucky, the last thing you want is to have to wait a year to withdraw your winnings.
And remember, the larger your bet size in relation to your bankroll, the shorter the expected time before you go bust. Of course, if you hit an early big win while playing with large stakes, you can then parlay that into a sizeable winning night. But if you end up losing all your cash after 5 minutes, don’t say that Captain Boring here didn’t try to warn you.
