Comic books are one of the most popular themes for slots games – Image via Pexels

Given that none of us were around in the mid-1890s, you will have to trust us when we say that the first slot machine was extremely basic.

The purely mechanical Liberty Bell had a handful of symbols and a 50 cents jackpot – a far cry from the technological creations we see today.

Modern slot games are packed with features such as wild symbols, scatter symbols, bonus levels and the all-important game theme.

For many players the theme is the most important element – the deciding factor in them choosing which particular game they should play.

Comics and mythology are amongst the most popular slots themes around today, but which are the best games in those categories? Here are some of our favourites.

Jack Hammer

In the ultimate tale of good versus evil, Jack Hammer pits his wits against a gangster in a stunning comic book themed slots game.

Hammer home your message with free spins and sticky win bonuses to drain Dr Wuten’s bank accounts and line your own pockets.

The sticky win feature is particularly lucrative, giving players the opportunity to generate a series of bumper wins if you hit the right symbols.

With stunning graphics and a great soundtrack, the Jack Hammer slot is a game you will find difficult to stop playing.

Haul of Hades Super Spinner

The Haul of Hades Super Spinner online slot provides players with dynamic gameplay, massive thrills and the chance to win big money.

As highlighted by the title, the Super Spinner is where the action is at, helping to elevate this immersive slots game into another stratosphere.

If you hit a win of four times your stake or more, you are taken from the base game to four 5×3 reel games where Hades, Zeus, Athena and Aphrodite can boost your payout.

During the feature you will have more chances of winning and can win on more than one game at once. In simple terms, Haul of Hades Super Spinner is brilliant!

Fantastic Four

We head back to the comic book world for our next slot, which features not one, not two, not three, but four magnificent superheroes.

The Fantastic Four slot is a five-game with 50 paylinesstarring Mr Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, The Human Torch and The Thing.

Wild symbols and scatter symbols are the pathway to riches on the game, with the latter having the potential to trigger the free spins bonus feature.

With four linked four linked Marvel Progressive Jackpots – Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power – Fantastic Four is a slots game not to be missed.

Gods of Gold

Gods of Gold is one of the most searched for slots games on Google, highlighting the attraction of well-crafted mythology themed titles.

This progressive jackpot game has 25 paylines, wild symbols, sticky wilds and more, making it one of the most feature-packed mythology themed slots around.

Hit three bonus symbols anywhere on reels 2-3-4 to trigger the Wheel of Fortune which will spark one of the five Gods of Gold bonus games.

With a maximum bet level of $500 per spin, Gods of Gold has the power to generate truly eye-watering jackpot payouts.

Batman & Catwoman Cash

Batman & Catwoman Cash is a Playtech developed slot with two excellent bonus features and four progressive jackpots.

Simultaneously landing the pink bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 triggers the Batman vs Catwoman free spins feature, which is where the big money rests.

You start with a 2x multiplier and up to 25 free spins, each of which can be a winner if you match up the correct symbols.

With Grand, Major, Minor and Mini progressive jackpots also in the mix, the Batwoman & Catwoman Cash slots game hits all the right notes.

Towering Pays Valhalla

Norse mythology-themed slots games have become increasingly popular over the past few years and one of the best recent releases is Towering Pays Valhalla.

The game has followed in the footsteps of Towering Pays Babylon and Towering Pays Egypt to provide players with a game that truly towers above its rivals.

The 15-payline slot starts on a set of five reels, but landing towers of symbols can add ten more paylines and an extra row, boosting your winning chances.

The Odin Free Spins feature can be extremely lucrative, while the Valkyrie Free Spins bonus also has the potential to pay out big wins.

Green Lantern

There are a couple of Green Lantern slots games on the market, but the pick of the bunch is unquestionable the version developed by Playtech.

Featuring a 5×3 playing grid and 243 fixed paylines, the 94.95 return to player percentage is perhaps a little stingy compared to other games in the same category.

However, this is more than compensated for by some superb features including the dynamic multiplier, 10 free spins and three mission games.

Factor in great graphics, a superb soundtrack and the DC Progressive Jackpot and the Green Lantern slot provides a stunning gameplay experience.

Book of Vikings

There have been several successful ‘Book of’ titled slots released in recent years and Book of Vikings is another excellent addition to the list.

This highly volatile 5-reel, 10-payline slot, offers animpressive 96.5 return to player percentage and loads of great features.

Hitting five symbols pays up to 500 times your original bet and can be boosted further during the mystery extra spins feature.

Stunning graphics and immersive sounds add to the feeling of quality, making Book of Vikings a slot you cannot afford to ignore.
