- Legacy of Dead by Play’n GO – 290,811 Spins
In 2022, Play’n GO’s Book of Dead managed to knock NetEnt’s Dead or Alive 2 off its perch as the number 1 Slot Tracker slot. It’s been a great year for Play’n GO who are the makers of 3 of the top 5 most popular slots with our community. A big congratulations to Play’n GO!

Top 3 Megaways™ Slots Revealed!
The first game to have the Megaways™ mechanic – Dragon Born by Big Time Gaming – was released in 2016. Now, there’s a whole host of suppliers who produce Megaways™ games. Megaways™ games are still as popular as ever in 2022. Below are our community’s favourite Megaways™ games:
The Dog House Megaways™ was the number one game from 2021 and it remains the most popular Megaways™ game of 2022. Pragmatic Play has now added another fantastic Megaways™ game to our list of player favourites: Primal Megaways™.

Top 3 Best Payout Slots Revealed!
Our tool enables you to track the highest payout that was triggered on each and every slot. See Slot Tracker’s 2022 heavy hitters below:
NetEnt’s Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot performed exceptionally well this year. In 2021, one lucky player hit a 40,559x multiplier on Dead or Alive 2. We were surprised that Dead or Alive 2, which was 2021’s winner for highest bet multiplier, didn’t make it into 2022’s top three!

Book of Dead slot by Play’n GO
Play’n GO is a supplier that needs no introduction, and Book of Dead is one of the true legends of the industry. The game is a simple but beautifully designed game featuring Expanding Symbols. Our community of players have tracked 1,041,612 spins on the game and it has a hit rate of 27.04% (1/3.7) at time of writing.
Dead or Alive 2 by NetEnt
The success of Dead or Alive 2 is impressive; the numbers speak for themselves. The original Dead or Alive is one of the true classics of online casino. It heralded a whole new generation of players with an appetite for high volatility games. NetEnt claims that it is possible to achieve wins of 100,000x. We haven’t tracked a win this high yet, but the popularity of the game and its win potential is indisputable.
Legacy of Dead by Play’n GO
Released in 2020, Legacy of Dead is a typical Play’n GO slot in many ways – a historical-themed slot that’s simple and entertaining and great fun to play. At time of writing, the slot has well over half a million spins tracked on our tool, with an impressive hit rate of 26.61%.
Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot by NetEnt
This is a game we love that we feel doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves. Street Fighter II currently has 55,259 spins tracked on our tool (at time of writing) and keeps delivering impressive wins like the one awarded to the lucky player from the UK!
Pragmatic Play is one of the leading slots manufacturers. Its slots are incredibly popular with players as evidenced by the community data gathered on our spin-tracking tool. At time of writing, our community of players have played 11,288,614 spins on slots made by this supplier. Big Bass Bonanza and Gates of Olympus are prime examples of fantastic games made by Pragmatic Play.
Founded in 2005, this slots manufacturer initially operated from a small office inside Sweden. It is now one of the leading suppliers of online gaming products. Play’n GO has a tried-and-tested way of making slots that has enabled them to strike chords with players around the world. These slots are often themed around history (see Book of Dead, Rise of Olympus, Tome of Madness) but also games with modern, innovative themes (see Reactoonz and Honey Rush). They tend to be 5×5, 7×7 grids with a cluster pays system. The supplier has 4,589,489 spins tracked at time of writing.
One of the pioneers in slots manufacture that created some of the world’s most iconic and successful slots such as Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest and Dead or Alive 2. With 25 million + spins tracked on our tool (at time of writing), the popularity of NetEnt is undisputed and it shows no sign of slowing down.
Analysing Community Tastes in Different Countries
Players in each country have very different tastes. Below, we shine a spotlight on two different countries to see the extent to which player behaviour varies:
- In 2022, the most popular slot was Dead or Alive 2 by NetEnt with 179,998 tracked spins
- The largest win was 8,198x – also recorded in this game
- The most popular game provider was NetEnt
In Great Britain:
- In 2022, the most popular slot was Dead or Alive 2 by NetEnt with 126,507 tracked spins
- The largest win was 15,220x – recorded on Street Fighter II (a NetEnt game)
- The most popular game provider was NetEnt
The success of Dead or Alive 2 was universal across both markets. Here are some other slots that were popular in the two countries:
- Book of Dead by Play’n GO (160,481 spins)
- The Dog House Megaways™ by Pragmatic Play (94,766 spins)
- The Dog House by Pragmatic Play (79,494 spins)
In Great Britain:
- Ancient Fortunes Poseidon Megaways™ by Triple Edge Studios (41,462 spins)
- Who’s the Bride by NetEnt (36,873 spins)
- Spartacus Megaways™ by SG Digital (25,384 spins)
Pop culture can explain why some slots rank highly in certain markets and not in others. The popularity of reality shows like Love is Blind and Love Island in the UK might explain the large volume of spins tracked for such slots as Who’s the Bride. It’s surprising that Play’n Go’s Book of Dead, a game that’s wildly popular in most countries, doesn’t even rank in the top 10 with our British players. The one universal is Megaways™ games which seem to be popular across the board.
Across the Pond
We take a look at Mexico where player tastes – according to our community data – are totally different from those of Europeans.
- In 2022, the most popular slot was Rock Vegas by Pragmatic Play with 92,648 tracked spins.
- The largest win was 1,424x – recorded on Bushido Ways by Nolimit City.
- The most popular game provider was Pragmatic Play.
Ranking highly with Mexican players were:
- Cowboys Gold by Pragmatic Play (92,648 spins)
- Wild Wild Riches by Pragmatic Play (47,769 spins)
- Eye Of The Storm by Pragmatic Play (41,392 spins)
Pragmatic Play clearly reigns supreme in this part of the world, but the favourites of Mexican players are very different compared to their European counterparts!
