Starburst by NetEnt Retakes the Lead in iGaming Tracker’s Slot Ranking

For many players, the search for which slot games to play depends on several factors. It can be the promised jackpots, some will focus on features and theme, and others go technical by looking at variance and return to players. And some take the quickest route – play the most popular online slots in the business. The choice of online slots is always subjective but when it comes to the most popular, the choice can be unanimous. 

And this is exactly what drives the slots ranking managed by iGaming Tracker. As a tribute to the most popular online slots across the web, iGaming Tracker takes a look at the most popular slots online and ranks them monthly. For the month ending December, NetEnt’s Starburst retakes the No.1 position from Book of Dead by Play’n GO. This renewed push for Starburst clearly illustrates the appeal of the slot game from NetEnt. It’s a classic choice with fun and colorful features that can compete with feature-rich and modern slots anytime!

Book of Dead by Play’n GO Slips to No.2

The month of December has been a busy year for online casinos and this can be seen in the quality of new and standard slots played in real money. Based on iGaming Tracker’s ranking, the previous leader, Book of Dead, slips to the second position. For the rest of 2019, these two popular slot games were the top two games on the web. Starburst was the favorite for months before Book of Dead replaced the game at the top spot last February 2019.

In the new rankings released, there are eight new slot games added to the list with Sweet Bonanza Christmas as the highest-placing new game at ranked five. Pragmatic Play contributed four titles to the list and other popular studios also shared their games on this list. Some of the popular new entrants to the list are Eye of Horus Megaways by Blueprint Gaming, Polar Paws by Playtech, Finn’s Golden Tavern by NetEnt, and Santa vs Rudolf by NetEnt. For the December rankings, it was notable that some of the games added have the Christmas theme.

How iGaming Tracker Works

To come up with a ranking of top slots played monthly, iGaming Tracker monitors online casinos in many European countries including the United Kingdom, Norway, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, and Germany. The games are then ranked based on their position throughout the month on the 50 biggest online casinos in Europe. For tracking, only the main pages of the casinos are considered and the top 10 most popular positions on these pages. Pages that are exclusive to the operator are not included in the processing of the results. 

To come up with a ranking, the team calculates the total number of hours the online slot was included in the top 10 positions for a given month. Each qualifying casino page is monitored once every day. And for the slots ranking, other casino games like live dealer titles and card games are not included.
