A lively pilgrimage
Is this the year of a return to dominance of Ancient Egyptian-themed slots titles? It very well could be, if you look at the Top Win title for January. Pilgrim of Dead, a vivid adventure from Play’n GO (yes, the same geniuses behind Book of Dead) that offers a lively journey into the past, despite the grim-sounding title.
This game has lots on offer with Free Spins rounds prompted by the tomb Scatter and lots of other features along the way. With rewards like the leading January win of €76,675 to be had, if good fortune is on your side, maybe a spin or two is in your future.
Gritty slots developer Nolimit City is hitting the right notes with players with their games, some of which come fully-loaded with shock value. The game Serial isn’t about cornflakes, it’s about deranged individuals who like to get rid of their victims in cruel and unusual ways.
This may be a long way from fruit-themed titles, but this dramatic style of game is capturing the imagination of players, so much so that it scooped the number two spot in the top wins and top multipliers lists. The big win of €44,880 in this game came off the back of a bet of €0,80, so that was a lucky win, for sure.
Hacksaw Gaming is another gritty slots developer enjoying a wild ride right now, with no fewer than three big wins in the Top 10. Their western-themed title Wanted: Dead or a Wild is a rip roaring title that produced wins of €21,789 and €20,326 for two lucky players. This game comes fully loaded with special features, including Dead Man’s Hand, Duel At Dawn and The Great Train Robbery, boosting the chance for players to access those potentially lucrative bounties.
Not to be outdone, their wacky old-school animation slot Book of Time featuring the popular Canny the Can character contributed to a win of €19,196 off a €10 stake, so that was a pretty fine return.
A feast of fun
Leading slots provider Pragmatic Play put some players in party mode with their games, with two titles in the Top 10, including Hot Fiesta with a win of €19,090 and Pizza! Pizza? Pizza! with a win of €18,000. This game designer is a frequent mention in top games lists with their unusual mechanics, fascinating gameplay and cutting-edge designs.
Worth a mention
Two more developers whose games are capturing players’ imaginations are Yggdrasil and Relax Gaming. In the case of the former, their title Holmes and the Stolen Stones netted one lucky player €21,598 off a wager of €1. With Relax, their title Beast Mode added the excitement for the player who scooped a win of €17,105.

Holmes and the Stolen Stones
Big Mighty Bear
Wanted: Dead or a Wild
Well done to daring games provider Nolimit City for taking both of the Top 10 Multiplier spots. The quirky title Dead Canary scooped top spot, with its mine-themed torchlight leading the way for one lucky player who achieved a multiplier of 65,000x their wager. That was closely followed by their creepy slots game Serial with a multiplier of 56,100x.
Their Wild West-themed game Tombstone R.I.P. proved that they can also rock the prairies, producing the 4th-highest multiplier in January, a whopping 22,820x boost for that player’s winnings.
This developer seems to be one to watch in 2023, with their gripping themes and interesting mechanics.
Push Gaming is making all the right noises with their blockbuster of a title, Big Bamboo. This game contains winning ingredients that include exciting bonus rounds, novel gameplay and stunning graphics.
Big Bamboo is infinitely playable and, as three lucky players discovered in January, it’s possible to achieve some tremendous rewards. These three punters bumped up their prizes by securing multipliers of 25,257x, 15,198x and 15,172x respectively, with the highest win coming from a wager of just €0.10!
Slots powerhouses leave their mark
Yggdrasil continue their industry dominance with their bold slots, as shown by the presence of the game Holmes and the Stolen Stones at number 5 on the multipliers list with a player attaining a 21,597x windfall.
Not to be outdone, the original online slots wizards Microgaming demonstrated that their titles can compete with the best. In January, their game Big Mighty Bear secured 9th spot with a 15,000x multiplier, once again underscoring that this pioneer in online slots is a force to be reckoned with.
More than a hack!
To close off the Top 10 multipliers list for January, Hacksaw Gaming managed to pip the post with Wanted: Dead or a Wild. As mentioned in the big wins section, this developer seems to be on the fast track to success.
An interesting detail about them: prior to kicking off some of the most-popular current slots, they cut their teeth with online scratch cards, many of which are available to play on Wildz. Some of those themes they have transformed into engaging slots, like the game Scratch ‘Em, also featuring Canny the Can, the lead character in the slots Stack ‘Em and Stick ‘Em. Now that’s some impressive versatility at work!
