2020 was a mixed year for everyone for various reasons, with plenty of ups and downs for us to face. Here at Legs Eleven, we wanted to ensure that players could still enjoy a high-quality casino experience so we improved our site with regular maintenance, updated the layout of our casino blogs, and we released a huge range of casino games released to our site. In terms of UK online slots, 2020 was our busiest year to date, with a fantastic selection of online slots released, all varying in theme, format and functions! In this blog, we will be looking at which casino slots were the most popular slots to play in 2020.
2020’s Most Popular Slots
It comes as no surprise that the Starburst slot was our most popular title of 2020 and even featured in our rocket slots article. Starburst embodies the intergalactic theme brilliantly with a tremendous amount of detail that has been put into the design and overall aesthetic. In terms of layout, Starburst adopts a traditional 5x3 format with a range of dazzling space-oriented symbols. Winning combinations can be formed by landing three or more matching symbols, with winnings of up to 50,000 coins available from a single spin. While it doesn’t have a main bonus feature, it offers powerful wilds that can substitute for other symbols on the reels to help form winning combinations.

Book of Dead
Another unsurprising addition to this list is Book of Dead, which is one of our most popular Egyptian slots. As is the case with most similarly themed slots, Book of Dead features iconic Egyptian imagery, including sandy dunes and the famous pyramids in the backdrop. The layout of the slot is a traditional 5x3 format, with 10 paylines in play. There are also some brilliant bonus features on offer, including a free spins bonus and cash prizes of up to 5,000x your stake!
2020 was a great year for Megaways slots, with many excellent titles released to our site. Our most popular Megaways slot was Monopoly Megaways! As you might expect from a board game-themed slot, there are plenty of immersive features to be discovered, including a reactions feature, a free spins bonus, and most notably the Monopoly board. The latter feature is a one-of-a-kind animated board featuring Mr Monopoly himself who will traverse the virtual streets to potentially claim properties and award unique bonuses. This slot game's layout is that of a traditional Megaways slot with six reels and a random number of symbols on each, leading to up to 117,649 win ways.

Fishin’ Frenzy is one of our favourite aquatic slots and can be found regularly on our featured games grid. As with most of our popular slots in 2020, Fishin’ Frenzy adopts a traditional 5x3 slot format, with 10 paylines and a minimum bet of 10p per spin, meaning there are plenty of stake options to choose from. There are also some fantastic bonus features on offer, including free spins, wild symbols and cash prizes of up to 500x your stake.
The Cleopatra slot series is one of the most iconic series of games there are in the casino world, and it all started with the original Cleopatra slot. This slot is based on the legendary pharaoh, Cleopatra, so you can expect a lot of stunning Egyptian aesthetics and imagery. Cleopatra contains the traditional 5x3 slot format with 20 fixed paylines in place, in addition to a generous betting range. As with most of our popular online slots of 2020, Cleopatra boasts a free spins bonus as well as cash prizes, where in this case you could win up to 100x your stake!

Another iconic slot series here at Legs Eleven is the very popular Rainbow Riches series, which started with Rainbow Riches as the original. Rainbow Riches is an Irish slot, so you can expect a viridescent colour palette, rolling hills, and the presence of a jolly leprechaun companion. This online slot is certainly a fan favourite at Legs Eleven with a traditional 5x3 format on offer, along with three main bonus features: Road to Riches, Wishing Well and the Pots of Gold feature too.
Another online slot with a traditional 5x3 format that has made this list is Berryburst. As you would very much expect with this slot's name, Berryburst adopts a fruit theme that will resonate with traditional players who have played slots in-person on fruit machines in casinos and public houses. What is different about this game compared to traditional slots, is that it contains immense graphics and visuals, with some brilliant bonus features available such as re-spins and expanding wilds, both of which can help lead to big wins!
Immortal Romance is an online slot based on romance and drama, which is a rare theme where slot machines are concerned. What isn’t so rare is the bonus features on offer, as there are wild symbols, scatter symbols and free spins to be won, all of which can potentially lead to big wins. Once again, we see a traditional 5x3 format on offer, with a range of different symbols that can land on the reels at any time during the slot.
Rainbow Jackpots is a classic here at Legs Eleven and has been a fan favourite for a number of years now. Like the Rainbow Riches series, this is also an Irish-themed slot with a 5x3 format. There are also 20 paylines, along with a large number of brilliant bonus features on offer. The bonuses available in Rainbow Jackpots include two variations of free spins, along with two ‘Beer Bonus’ features and two ‘Symbol Swap’ features, all of which could lead to big wins!
Pixies of the Forest
Last but not least, Pixies of the Forest concludes our list of the top 10 most popular slots in 2020. This is a magical-themed online slot game that features mysterious pixies, who have the power to increase your winnings with the tumbling reels feature. As you have probably guessed, this also contains a 5x3 slot layout with a range of symbols, including traditional icons and pixie portraits at the upper end of the paytable, aligning with this online slot’s theme.
