Top Penny Slots to Try
It’s easy to become overwhelmed with choice when looking for penny slots to try. Here are a few of our favourites to get you started ‒ look for the free play mode to get familiar with the game before you start betting with real money.
Book of Dead
The third instalment in Play’n GO’s popular Rich Wilde series, Book of Dead is a high-variance penny slot with a respectable RTP of 96.21% and ten paylines. Book of Dead is a true penny slot — the minimum stake is 1¢ and players can bet on just one payline.
Special features include a combined wild scatter symbol, along with an exciting free spins round activated when three wild scatters appear on the reels. The free spins round introduces an expanding wild too, making wins more likely. There’s no jackpot to be found in Book of Dead, but matching Rich Wilde five times on a payline will net 5,000x the stake — that’s a possible $50 win from a 1¢ spin.
Wazdan’s Double Tigers is an orient-themed 3×3 penny slot. There are eight paylines in play at all times and each spin costs one 1¢ stake. Double Tigers is a very simple penny slot: there are only two symbols — the fire tiger and water tiger — and no bonus rounds or wilds. That said, the beautiful graphics do make this an engaging slot to spin.
Something unique to Wazdan’s titles is the Volatility Levels feature, which lets players select between low, standard, and high volatilities. Double Tigers’ RTP is 96.43% and the maximum win of 40x your stake is quite low compared to other slots.
Divine Fortune is a 5×3 penny slot with an RTP of 96.59%. Released by NetEnt in 2017, it’s a medium volatility slot with fixed paylines. There are 20 in total, making the minimum bet $0.20 per spin.
Divine Fortune has three jackpots up for grabs: the minor pays 400x the stake, the major pays 2,000x, and the mega jackpot is progressive, meaning that a portion of each spin’s stake is added to the prize until it’s won. Bear in mind that your chances of winning the mega jackpot increase with higher stakes.
This slot has an abundance of bonus features too, including several special wild mechanics and free spins rounds. We’d recommend playing for free first to get to grips with how they all work.
One of the older games on the list, IGT released Cleopatra back in 2004. There are five reels, three rows, and 20 fixed paylines here, so the minimum bet per spin is $0.20. This Egyptian-themed penny slot has a medium volatility and an RTP of 95.02%. Despite its aging graphics, common features like wilds and free spins rounds are still present and players can win up to 10,000x their stake.
Pixies of the Forest
IGT’s fantasy-themed Pixies of the Forest is a 5×3 slot with medium variance. The paylines are fixed at 99 and the minimum bet is $0.33. The RTP is a little lower at 93-94.9%, but the exciting tumbling reels mechanic can result in consecutive wins from the same spin.
