Top Slot Game Developers

Posted on March 08, 2020 by Lisa Turnbull

A lot has changed since Charles D. Fey first created his infamous Liberty Bell slot machine, something that very quickly led to the widespread proliferation of an entirely new, and incredibly exciting mode of gambling. This was the first genuinely commercially viable machine that actually paid out money, landing Charles D. Fey the honor of being the originator of commercial slots.

That was back in the very late 1800s… forward-wind a hundred years and slots are literally everywhere to be the same. They took over casinos all over the world in the 20th Century, but the 21st Century has ushered in a new era of slot gambling driven entertainment, one that takes place online. There are a few online slot developers that have been responsible for this dramatic shift due to their extremely good games, let’s take a look at some of these – play at Star Slots


As most online slot gambling aficionados will tell you, NetEnt are one of the best developers in the game, with a back-catalogue that breathes excellence. You just know that playing a NetEnt slot is going to be supremely enjoyable, mainly because of their knack at delivering impeccable graphics, great themes, and more than enough bonus features. 

Having been established in the early 2000s, this Swedish developer company have got mountains of experience too, so its no wonder that their games are held in such high regard. Here are a few: 

  • The Codfather 
  • Gonzo’s Quest 
  • Starburst 


Microgaming are another gargantuan online slot development outfit, and one that has been around since well before the beginning of the online slot craze, starting life in the mid 1990s. The company caters to a wide range of slot fans, with an assortment of titles that can range from downright ridiculous to classic and vintage. 

One of their biggest playing cards is the Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network, something that has paid out over a million pounds on multiple occasions. Take a look at some of their games here: 

•    Jungle Jim – El Dorado 

•    108 Heroes 

•    Agent Jane Blonde 


Widely acknowledged to be the people behind the world’s first ever commercially viable online slot Temple Of Isis, Eyecon understandably hold a great deal of respect within the online slot community. The Australian developers didn’t stop with the release of Temple Of Isis either, far from it in fact, becoming one of the go too companies in the market. 

Their back-catalogue speaks for itself. Look at these: 

•    Fireworks Frenzy 

•    Fluffy Favourites 

•    Secret Garden II 


All the developers so far that we have explored have been around since pretty much the very start of the online slot craze, but Yggdrasil were only actually established in 2013. However, this Swedish company was started by an ex CEO of NetEnt, so rest assured, they know exactly what they’re doing. 

Yggdrasil have become known for impeccably clear 3D graphics that really bring their games to life. For example: 

•    Vikings Go To Hell 

•    Legend Of The Golden Monkey •    The Dark Joker Rises
