August 2016 – Top of Slots

New slots come and go, but the leaders remain the same. Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest are #1 and #4 respectively in Top of Slots in August. Two new game launches from NetEnt Secrets of Atlantis and Wild Wild West (slot with limited release) and Hugo from Play’n Go are also in Top 5.

Zoom slot is the surprise of the summer – a real success for Thunderkick. Grim Muerto has beaten When Pigs Fly for second month in a row. Play’n Go has had great year so far and are now a real threat for market leading NetEnt.

Theme Park is out of Top 20 this month and When Pigs Fly drops seven positions. This means that NetEnt can’t call this summer for the successful one. Even though Secrets of Atlantis is second this month, it is not a major hit. In the end of the month Hugo slot is being marketed more than NetEnt’s August 2016 release.

When it comes to slot supplier performance, we see the negative trend for Yggdrasil in August, while Thunderkick is performing better with several slots. Play’n Go is a clear number two, while Quickspin and NextGen fight with each other for long-term third place.

Note, that even though Microgaming and, to some extent even IGT and WMS, have a lot of slots available through online casino operators, their slot games are not receiving any promotion at all. It is fully possible that these two suppliers have a substantial share of the market. Top of Slots shows only the level of visibility of the slots, so this would be incorrect to estimate the turnover on slots by using our charts.
