Top 10 Highly Dispersive Slots
When new players discover new online casinos and read a huge list of various slots one of the most common problems is to decide which slot to play and which video slot from the list of available ones can generate a huge win that we all dream of.
This is quite a difficult task, to study more than 500 slots that online casino offers, and to choose which one to play, which one corresponds to the expectations and goals of the player.
This article focuses mainly on highly dispersive (variable) slots, the most popular slots in the world, although there are a huge number of alternatives. We hope that we will help newcomers to choose a slot for playing online, without wasting much time learning dozens of similar slots.
What does the dispersive (variable) slot means?
This is a mathematical term that explains how often something deviates from the expected value. For example, winnings in low dispersion slots should be cheap but frequent and should not deviate from the developer’s return to player (RTP), while highly dispersive slots have a big difference between the minimum and maximum possible win and play with sharp difference from bottom to top and vice versa.
Experienced players adapted to these phenomena, and usually divide the slots into 3 groups: low, medium and high dispersive.
In comparison with other casino games such as blackjack and roulette, even low dispersion slots are able to give a good multiplier to your bet, for example, a slot with a very low variance – Bloodsuckers from NetEnt – will be very suitable for wagering the bonus (where allowed), since the expected return to player (RTP) is very high, and the variation of the slot is very low.
Highly dispersive slots can also have high RTP, but they give the possibility of huge win at a relatively small bet. You will definitely like that such slots are designed so that most slots with the expected low winnings will be worse, with their insufficient “BIG WINS” and bonus rounds. Slots with medium dispersion, of course, are somewhere in the middle.
The risk, when playing in highly dispersive slot, is much higher. Here you should choose either the risk of losing everything and got a big win, or longer boring game, without much excitement. If you are looking for winnings over 1000 times on your bet, then you definitely should stop your attention on highly dispersive slots!
But on the other hand, if you want to increase the playing time and take less risk, then medium and low dispersion slots are always available for the game.
Top 10 highly dispersive slots
Immortal Romance – Microgaming
Immortal Romance is a 243-payline stylish slot, offering four unique bonus games that open as you continue to catch free spins. Built on vampire themes, Immortal Romance, developed in 2011, remains one of the most popular online video slots in the world. Many players won the Wild Desire (drops) chip, which can give you some incredible multiplications, if you successfully catch symbols.
Players have the opportunity to catch this function during any spin in a normal game. The function turns from 1 to 5 reels completely in WILD.
This is not the only way to win a big jackpot, there are four different unique bonus games, including a bonus in which all winnings are getting multiplied by 5, and if you consider that winnings with the WILD symbol are already going X2, then the potential total payout x10 per line in 243-paylines slot … well, you know. Each of the four free rounds can generate a big win, but I personally like the bonuses from Amber and Troy the most.
The whole theme of the slot is simply amazing, starting with the sound effects when the scatters fall onto the reels, ending with different musical accompaniments to each bonus, which describe the character of each of the four vampires. Also there is a system of achievements.
There are other slots from Microgaming similar to Immortal Romance – Playboy, Game Of Thrones (243 Way), Thunderstruck II, Jurassic Park, The Finer Reels of Life.
Dead or Alive – NetEnt
Dead or Alive is probably a number one slot for giving out winnings over 1000x, and if you hear this fact for the first time I forgive you underestimating this classic 9-line slot, since it has an incredible potential.
The standard game is slow and boring, but free spins can be remembered for a very long time, because during free rounds, any wild that pops up on the reels will freeze and remain until the end of the bonus game, and that’s when the slot becomes interesting.
If you’re lucky enough, and you get wilds on all five reels, you also get five additional spins. If you can build your wilds in any of the nine lines, then until the end of the bonus, with each round you will receive just incredible winnings. Winning over 1000x per bet is not that rare in this slot, and if you are lucky enough to collect more than one wild line during the bonus, then the slot will easily generate a payout of 3000-4000x and above.
Play carefully and bet less than usual if you decide to play in the video slot Dead or Alive with a goal of winning money.
Talking about slots similar to Dead or Alive – in fact, there are no more slots as a DOA, but there are similar classic slots capable of paying large sums. The list includes: Break da Bank (Microgaming), Thunderstruck (Microgaming), Reel Steal (NetEnt).
Medusa II – Nextgen
Medusa II is the heir of the successful first part of the game from NextGen, but in the fresh release the emphasis is made on stacking the reels with wilds, and not on the potential big winnings on the lines, as it was in the first slot.
Medusa II offers a 243-paylines structure and is filled with a lot of interesting things in both the normal game and the bonus round.
Random features of Medusa’s Turned to Stone and Medusa’s Locked Reels can appear in normal mode and represent a great potential for a huge win. Up to five reels can stick together and show the full house of the wilds, which will give you a win of 4860x per bet.
Free spins are triggered when you get three or more scatter symbols, then it becomes really interesting to play the slot.
Nextgen Gaming releases slots of very high quality, and you should check them out if you’ve only played NetNet or Microgaming before. Medusa II is one of our most favorite slots.
If you are a fan of these kind of slota, then you should also try Twin Spin (NetEnt). Of course, Twin Spin does not give as many winnings as in Medusa II, but it often gives you a whole bunch of different symbols.
300 Shields – Nextgen
300 Shields is one of the most highly volatile slots on this list, so pay close attention to choosing the size of the bet. The slot can generate winnings over 1000x per bet quite often, at the expense of the main multiplier of 300x in the bonus game. But to reach this level, you need to work a lot.
In the normal mode there is almost nothing interesting, the payouts are pretty small, so your pocket will quickly become empty if you don’t catch the bonuses quite often, since the real action begins during the mode of free spins.
As soon as you catch 3 or more shield symbols, a bonus round will start that will reward you with guaranteed five free spins. You need to collect more and more shields to move up the levels, increasing the number of free spins and multiplyr on a scale of 2x, 5x, 25x, and, eventually, 300x. The most important thing is to catch as many shields as possible at the very beginning of the bonus game – then you’ll have a real chance to multiply your balance several times.
Free spins can also be retriggered, after receiving three or more scatters you get additional five spins at the current multiplying level, which will seriously increase your chances of getting to the fourth level.
The multiplier is only used when the wild symbol participates in the formation of the winning line, so at later levels you only need lines with the participation of wilds. If you manage to collect a combination of five symbols with the participation of a wild at the level, when the multiplier is already 300x – any symbol will pay you a huge amount.
The dream line, of course, is five wilds at the 300x level, which would mean multiplying your bet by 12,000 times only for this one line, not including the others!
Pyramid – Quest for Immortality – NetEnt
One of the most recent releases from NetEnt, “Pyramid – Quest for Immortality”, is the slot that absorbed the Avalanche features, which we can see in the Gonzo’s Quest slot, and the pyramid-shaped reels made it unique.
In this slot there is no standard bonus in the form of free spins, but a unique feature called Wild Generations, which forms wild symbols in the Pyramid when winning combinations are popping up in a certain way. As the number of winnings in one series increases, the multiplier also increases. If you are so lucky that you collect a lot of winnings in a row, the multiplier will become x10.
The key to the big winnings in this slot is to win combos in a row, and if the wilds continue to be generated along with the multiplier, you will be very lucky and, probably, rich.
Prepare for a lot of empty spins, this is quite expected due to the high volatility of the slot, but as soon as the Wild Generations feature begins – you will not be disappointed.
The maximum possible payout in this slot may be equal to 3,600,000 coins, but it is almost impossible (you need to catch a all top symbols on a 10x multiplier), so it means that a potentially easy slot can generate winnings from 1000x per bet. Since the slot was created quite recently – at the end of 2015 – I don’t know the full potential of the game yet, but now some players share screenshots of 5000x multiplication on small bets.
The Wishmaster – NetEnt
The Wishmaster is a slot from NetEnt with very high variability. But you must pay attention to the choice of bet when playing Wishmaster. It definitely will not think long before taking all your deposit on a bad day, on the other hand, on a very good day you may get a series of big wins.
The main feature of this slot is scatter. It is enough to catch one such symbol so that Jinn jumped out of the lamp and conjured you one of the random amplifiers of the game for the next 10 spins: multiplier, additional wilds, whole reels of wilds, etc.
To start a series of big wins, you need to catch one more lamp while playing the lamp, that was spoiled earlier. If this happens, an additional amplifier will be added to the game, as well as an additional free spins.
It is possible to play simultaneously with three lamps maximum, if the fourth one pops up, then the very first lamp will disappear, making room for a new one. You can check the current active lamps and the remaining bonus spins in the upper left corner.
Dream combo that will turn a couple of dozen spins into a pool of money is to collect lamps with random wilds, driving wilds and additional wilds.
There are many combinations of three lamps that will allow you to win big, but the most important thing is to generate as many wilds as possible.
Rumpel Wildspins – Novomatic
Rumpel Wildspins is a slot based on the tale of the Brothers Grimm from Novomatic. In this video slot, as in many others I already described, there are freezing wilds during free spins, but it offers as many as 20 lines for the win, which is its huge potential. You can start mocking this slot for its classic Novomatic sounds and pretty old mechanics, but it will mean you just do not know how much profitable it can be.
In comparison with developers such as NetEnt and Microgaming, Novomatic slots may seem a little more difficult in terms of catching a bonus, but overall, bonus games are more profitable than in games of other developers. In the collection of Novomatic there is a large selection of magnificent slots, including such classic giants as: Book of Ra, Lord of the Ocean, Flame Dancer.
It should be noted that in almost all slots from Novomatic very large winnings are really possible, this developer creates the most dispersive games on the market. But the bonus game in the Rumpel Wildspins slot is one of the most exciting, especially when a lot of wilds pop up on the reels, and they stay in place until the end of the bonus game.
Free spins are triggered when you catch three or more scatter symbols. You get 15 free rounds, and, as noted above, any wilds popping up on the bonus level remain at the end of the free spins. This slot does not provide a retrigger, but you have the opportunity to collect a line of wilds, which will continue to play until the end, bringing you fabulous multiplication by the bet.
Winning over 1000x per bet is not uncommon in the Rumpel Wildspins video slot, but you will need a lot of wilds in good positions to achieve this goal.
Raging Rhino – WMS
Raging Rhino is a super volatile slot from WMS (Williams Interactive) and one of the most popular slots among online casino players. Initially, this slot was designed for offline casinos and later transferred to an online platform, so you get an authentic casino.
In Raging Rhino, the non-standard reels structure is 6×4. A total of 4,096 active lines. Really!
Much attention is attracted to the multipliers that appear during the rounds of free spins. Three or more scatter symbols guarantee a bonus round with free spins, additional scatters guarantee more free spins.
During free spins, if you catch at least two more cloths, you will get extra spins, but the real magic lurks in the wilds.
In a normal game, the wild acts like everywhere else – a substitute for other characters, but during free spins it also awards you with a random multiplier of x2 to x3 per bet. And this is not all, wilds are multiplicative, that is, they multiply among themselves. So if two wilds of 2x and 3x pop up, the total multiplication of the combination will be 6x.
Wilds can only appear on 2, 3, 4 and 5 reels. This means that dream combo is to collect four wilds on all possible reels.
Any combination with wilds and with Rhino’s top characters will create a massive combination of over 1000x.
Raging Rhino is a slot that should be played with great care, as well as other high-dispersion slots. Winnings in the bonus game range from a minimum of 10x (guaranteed) to 3000x and higher for dream combo.
Montezuma – WMS
Montezuma is the next slot from WMS that went online from offline casinos, while in the usual payout game Montezuma is not very different from the above Rhino, in the slot there is a unique bonus game with free spins, in which there is a multiplier up to 10x, as well as an unlimited number of retriggers.
The standard game in Montezuma is pretty usual – top symbols on the stack, which can potentially bring a big win, but the main focus and slot potential is contained in the free spins.
You can trigger free spins by catching three or more scatter symbols, then the wheel of fortune triggers, which will reward you with a certain number of free spins, from three to twenty five.
Before each spin, during the bonus game, the wheel starts spinning again, determining the multiplier by which the payout will be made, in case this spin is a winning one, of course. The main bonus feature is to catch 2 or more scatters, then additional spins will be added according to the current multiplier.
The multiplier varies from 2 to 10. And if the retrigger happens at 10x, prepare your pockets, because you’ll be shocked from the number of coins and winnings you get.
Dream combo in Montezuma is to catch the retrigger with a multiplier of 10x, then continue to receive retriggers already at this special stage. If at this stage you receive a large combo, you will get at least 2000x multiplication on your bet.
Cazino Zeppelin – Yggdrasil
Cazino Zeppelin is a well-known slot from the new provider – Yggdrasil Gaming. The slot offers 20 active lines and a 5×3 size. Just like in Dead or Alive and Rumpel Wildspins, attention is drawn to freezing wilds in a free spins round.
There is also an additional feature called Wild Transfer, it works like this: if at the moment when you caught the bonus there were wilds in the playing field, they will be transferred immediately to the bonus game and will remain there until the end.
If you manage to catch 5 wilds on all five reels during the free spin round, then you will get five additional spins. And if the wild line is formed, the win will easily overstep the line of 1000x for the bet by the end of the bonus round.
Cazino Zeppelin will definitely suit you, if you are a fan of frozen wilds and slots with high variability. The remaining slots from Yggdrasil are also quite volatile, so before you play, find out about the slot that interests you the most
This list is a list of highly dispersive online video slots, and of course, it is not exhaustive, there are many other great games, which are also worth considering, but this collection of ten, in my opinion, is the most fortunate.
Treat highly dispersive slots with great care, bet small amounts at a time. Even playing in the DOA at the minimum rate of 9 cents, do not forget that it can give more than the multiplication of x10,000.
Play for fun, but treat it responsibly. Let me know when you get a super huge multiplication in one of these slots!
