If you are somebody who likes to play casino online slots on your smartphone, you’ll know that there are definite pluses to the mobile format. You don’t have to sit at a desk or balance a laptop on your knees, and you can play while waiting in a queue or during your lunch break. You’ll also know that it’s more comfortable handling your smartphone in portrait mode.
While most slots still have a landscape orientation, we’ve put together our pick of best online slots that have been optimised for play in portrait mode. Take a look!
Thanks to developer Pragmatic Play, the creatures that roamed the prehistoric jungles of the Jurassic era make an impressive showing in portrait mode in Jurassic Giants. If you’re a fan of the Jurassic Park film series, then you’ll be pleased to know that you can play this mobile slot at our no deposit casino and explore a collection of characters along the way. This 6-reel, 4-payline slot gives you 4,096 ways to win as the formidable T-Rex does battle with the mighty mammoth and fearless sabre-tooth tiger.
The 6 reels are larger than many other slots and, because the traditional paylines have been replaced by an all-ways-to-win set-up, it’s easier to spot matching symbols right away. Any winning combinations simply have to appear in neighbouring columns, so you don’t have to consider where specific symbols have to land.
The game is suited to larger and smaller bankrolls with a minimum bet of 50p and a maximum bet of £250, and has an RTP (return to player) of 96%.
Next on our list of portrait slot games is Chi by Elk Studios. This beautifully designed title centres around the characters of two fox-like creatures called Chi (representing “fire”) and Mow (“wind”). The Himalayan mountains and artistically rendered natural scenery form the backdrop as Chi and Mow set out to find the lost city of treasures. This title’s reel set-up of cylindrical wheels that spin laterally presents particularly well in portrait mode.
This is a 5×3 slot with 27 paylines paying both from left to right and right to left, which gives you 54 paylines in total, and you can play across devices from 20p a spin. Chi has a high-volatility RTP of 96%, which means that wins are few but when they do come, they’re fairly generous!
The game Sweet Bonanza presents an explosion of colourful sweet treats, and plays just as well in portrait mode as landscape. The 6-reel mobile casino slot from Pragmatic Play uses a tumbling-reels game engine for extra action, and during bonus rounds that reward lucky players with 10 free spins, multipliers can increase payouts by up to 100x their stake. Bets range from 20p a spin to £125.
Indulge yourself in a world of fruit, cakes, and candies, and hope you land some winning combinations. Each time you do, the Tumble feature is activated: the reels tumble, the winning combos are removed from play and new symbols replace them. Sweet Bonanza is a medium- to high-volatility slot with an RTP of 96%.
The last of our featured portrait slot games is Esqueleto Explosivo. The graphics in this video slot, powered by Thunderkick, draw inspiration from the Mexican Day of the Dead, and the soundtrack plays along with a snippet of a Mexican song whenever you land a winning combination.
The title’s 5 symbols are all skulls, each representing a member of a musical band. Features include the Explosivo Wild (the yellow skull can substitute all the other symbols and, once hit, explodes the 8 surrounding symbols, which increases a multiplier by one level); the Mucho multiplier (which is triggered if you hit a win or land at least one explosivo wild – levels increase x1, x2, x4, x8, x16, and x32); and Dropping symbols (similar to cascading symbols, but these explode if you land a winning combination, and are replaced by symbols that drop down).
The 5×3 slot has an available betting range from 0.01 to 100 and 17 paylines. This low- to medium-volatility slot has an RTP of 97.6%, and so is likely to offer small but fairly frequent wins.
