It’s tough deciding what we love most about online slot games. Is it the big jackpot prizes, the flashing lights, the buzzing sounds or just sight of all those spinning reels? No. Whilst all these things are obviously great, we think what make online slot games so brilliant these days are the heroes that star in them.

Who couldn’t love Finn? The face of the NetEnt slot Finn and the Swirly Spin, this tap-dancing, flute-playing leprechaun takes players on a journey through a magical Irish land. Along the way he introduces them to the delights of ‘Swirly Spins’, helping them rethink the way slots can be played.

And no one could deny the brilliance of Gonzo. This brave explorer is the reason Gonzo’s Quest stands one of the most popular slots of all time. He’ll boldly guide you through the jungles of Eldorado on the hunt for treasure.
