What are the Most Popular Slot Themes?

Everyone has their favourite film genre. From crime and sci-fi, to Wild West, action adventure and romance..

But what would be the answer if you asked someone about their preferred online slot theme? The online casino industry borrows from a huge variety of themes that stretch the imagination to its limits, providing players with a rich catalogue of offerings to choose from.

Nowadays, there's a slot theme for just about every single player. We'll pour over some of the most popular ones in this Wildz Bonus article.

Ancient Egypt

Where else to start than with those Ancient Egyptians? Once the most powerful empire on earth, the Egyptians brought us some of the most breath-taking monuments ever constructed, which serve as an endearing testament to their advanced building expertise and dedication to the afterlife.

They're also responsible for some of the most popular video slots of all time. Play'n GO's Book of Dead continues to hog the most played lists at online casinos everywhere, owing to its famous Free Spins round, while newer, atmospheric releases like Valley of the Gods from Yggdrasil deliver a fresh, innovative take on the incredibly popular theme.


You'll discover these chart toppers, plus hundreds more titles based on the Ancient Egyptians in the Wildz Casino game, brought to you by dozens of providers. Prepare to be spellbound by the magic of this venerated people, and play in awe as scarabs, mystical hieroglyphs and towering obelisks guide you to forgotten riches.

The Egyptians were simply light years ahead of their time, and deserve their spot as number 1 on our report.


Who doesn't love food? It tastes good, facilitates social interaction and keeps us all alive, enabling us to sleep, breathe, work and play casino games every day!

Slot players clearly love their food too, reflected in the sheer plethora of games centred around all manner of delectable delights.

For those of a sweet tooth there's the likes of Sweet Bonanza from Pragmatic Play, or Net Gaming's Candy Bears Sweet Wins! that players can summon to get their sugar fix. If savoury food is more up your street, you might like Eyecon's homage to a British classic, Lucky's Fish & Chips, or how about KD: BBQ Frenzy from Nolimit City for something a little hotter?


Craving pizza? Then grab a slice of Pizza Express by Merkur Gaming, which comes complete with five rows, five reels and a plateful of tasty bonus extras.

Wild West

The Wild West has provided fertile ground for slot providers ever since online casino games came into existence - and with good reason.

The intoxicating cocktail of gunfire, blood-pumping action and epic soundtracks has proved an irresistible draw for slot players for years, and there aren’t many better at packaging this all up than industry frontrunners Relax Gaming or Nolimit City.

If the prospect of adrenaline-fuelled gameplay, loveable rogue characters or thumping music don't quite lure you in, then how about the promise of untold riches hidden behind games like Money Train 2 - Relax Gaming's ultra-popular 2020 smash hit, or the equally explosive Deadwood from Nolimit City? NetEnt's Dead or Alive 2 remains another hugely popular Wild West game with Wildz slot fanatics.


All three tease huge max wins that can reach as high as 111,111x your bet via their respective bonus rounds and are considered by many the quintessential Wild West slots, by which all other games in the category are measured by.


Proving that amorous affection isn't just for Valentine's Day, the global slot catalogue features heaps of games that pull at your heartstrings as you try to land the big bucks, and they're enjoyed by Wildz players all year round.

We're particularly fond of Lucky Valentine, a sickly sweet contribution to the genre from Red Tiger Gaming. Or for something a little different, check out Immortal Romance, Microgaming's decidedly dark take on love inspired by the wildly popular Twilight series that swept through America in the past decade.


If you're the spiritual kind, have a look at The Love Guru created by iSoftBet - a rather unique contribution to the theme which is bound to polarise opinion!


This is another prevalent theme throughout the industry. It seems players can't resist firing up a game featuring at least one critter by their side to sniff out the meaty prizes.

Dog lovers are well catered for, with Relax Gaming's Top Dawg$, which exploded onto the scene just recently, top billing at Wildz. Promising a max win worth 25,000x your bet, the game evokes the spirit of 90s hip hop, starring a clan of ultra-hip pups who inject a large dose of humour while bossing the mean streets of South Central LA.


Pragmatic Play's own band of loveable canines is no less popular. The Dog House proved so successful with slot players that it quickly led to a 2020 sequel. The Dog House Megaways retains the charm of the original with the added benefit of MegaWays shape-shifting reel action on top. The crowd-pleaser is always one of the best loved games at Wildz.

Let's not forgot about dogs' main rivals, cats. Plenty of online slots star this furry feline in their games - like Kitty Café from Net Gaming and Play'n GO's Feline Fury.

How about aliens? Do they constitute animals? If we want to stretch the category a little further, you could always look up Reactoonz from Play'n GO, where otherworldly beings dictate proceedings across an enlarged grid area located in some parallel universe.

No matter what your chosen slot theme, you're sure to find it at Wildz. Have a browse of our extensive game library to find the right game for you, and good luck!
