SlotCatalog Analytics Insights
We’ve scanned 826 UK casinos. The 189 most popular casinos were selected to be included in the data set. The data includes games that were released between '2019-01-01' and '2019-10-31' and the Average SlotRank metric is based on the games rank between day 60 and day 90 after their release date.
NetEnt’s highly anticipated sequel to the cult status game Dead or Alive hit all markets with a bang! The game quickly landed top positions in most major casino lobbies at the time of the release.
Released on the 23rd of April 2019, players enjoyed amazing gameplay, pristine visuals and perfectly matched soundtrack. The expectations on the release were huge, and this time the NetEnt team scored a home-run and landed above the players’ expectations!
The popularity of the Megaways technology has grown even stronger in the United Kingdom throughout 2019. But few have managed to use the technology in such a convincing manner as Blueprint. They have delivered a flawless game by combining the all-time favourite classic slot title with the Megaways mechanics.
Since the release on the 18th October 2019, players have jumped at the possibility to enter the free spins mode with unlimited extra spins!
The progressive slot, Mercy of the Gods by NetEnt caught a lot of players’ attention upon the release on the 4th of July. The highly volatile slot quickly became a player favourite thanks to the possibility to win big! But a big part of the game’s success was that NetEnt managed to make the base game very interesting.
The success was quickly reflected in the casino lobbies as the game claimed good positions worldwide, and managed to keep a lot of these positions long after the release.

What is SlotRank?
We scan casino sites for 23 markets daily to find out what games they have and which games they place in their lobby. Some of these casinos have enough estimated traffic to be included in the SlotRank calculation, others will be excluded since their exposure towards players is minimal.
We aggregate this data and distribute points to each game based on its positions in the crawled casinos. Points are distributed based on lobby position (where position 1 will give the most points) and then multiplied with a weight-multiplier.
The weight-multiplier is determined by the geographical popularity of the casino site, based on estimated traffic (For example the largest UK casino will have full weight, and the least popular UK casino included in the ranking will have the smallest weight-multiplier).
What does the SlotRank metric have to do with the best slot games?
Online Casinos are very agile! If a specific game isn’t appreciated by players and does not deliver results, the game in question will be moved down or removed from the casino lobby. Simply put, SlotCatalog are convinced that exposure is heavily connected with quality.
Which releases are included in the data selection?
All slot game releases between the 1st of January 2019 and the 31st of October are included in the analytics insight report. The reason why November and December releases have not been included is that we want to measure the quality and stickiness of the games, which we explain further in the section below.
Why is the ranking based on day 60-90 SlotRank average methodology?
New games come and, sometimes, goes. Highly established game providers have their games published in a lot of casinos quickly, and their games automatically get a chance to prove their quality in the lobbies. If the release is of high quality it will stay at premium lobby positions. However, lesser-known game providers might need some time to prove their high-quality release.
