Slot games can be played anywhere; in the pub with your friends, on your laptop, phone, or portable device. Innovative online slot games are more commonplace than ever before, with characters, popular icons, and chances to win or join a community of like-minded players. Below, we will rank some of the most popular male characters in online slots.
Rich Wilde Travelling the World
When it comes to acclaimed fan favorites, there are plenty of options available online for avid slot players. When looking for options for online casino gambling at Paddy’s, for example, the slots section includes Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead, alongside titles based on other themes.
Rich is a fictional explorer who is looking for treasure in the Egyptian pyramids, and this title was so successful that it led to spin-offs like Rich Wilde and the Wandering City. Developer Play’nGO has also created games such as Cat Wilde and the Pyramids of Dead, which are based on the adventures of Rich’s daughter.
Gonzo Exploring Peru
Another of the classic male slot characters, Gonzo is also fictional but has been based on the Spanish conquistadores who explored the New World. The Gonzo’s Quest title was released in 2011 and sees him land in Peru to look for gold. It was the first massive success for Swedish developer NetEnt and helped them to become one of the industry’s biggest names.
The gameplay on Gonzo’s Quest is fairly simple but it’s been updated in the more recent Gonzo’s Quest Megaways game, which adds the Megaways mechanic of constantly changing reel layouts. As with Rich, the developers have given him a daughter, who is called Gonzita and who appears in her own slot called Gonzita’s Quest, and there’s also a live casino game based on this character.
Leonardo da Vinci and His Works of Art
Unlike the other two characters we’ve looked at already, this one is real. Leonardo da Vinci was possibly the greatest artist and multi-faceted genius of all time according to the History Channel, so it’s no surprise to see that he’s inspired game developers like the team at IGT who turned this popular land-based slot machine into an online game.
The popularity of the original Da Vinci Diamonds slot has led to other games, such as Da Vinci Mystery and Slingo Da Vinci. The theme mixes precious stones with images such as the artist’s most famous paintings.
An Unnamed Angler Hooks Prizes
It might seem strange to find an anonymous character on this list, but the unnamed angler in the Fishin Frenzy series by Blueprint is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable slot characters. Based on a fishing theme, Fishin Frenzy has a special bonus feature where this cheerful fisherman scoops up fish to earn the player prizes.
The success of the original game has led to a series of games built around it, like some of the others listed here. They tweak the gameplay by adding jackpot prizes or extra bonus rounds.
All of these male characters have played their part in the growth of the online slots sector, and it seems likely that we see more games based on them being released before too long.
