Unlike table games which feature the same dull and boring characters, slot games provide a variety of different amusing characters. In this respect, slot games, with their characters, symbols, bright colours and enticing music, are much more entertaining than table games. And it is probably all the entertainment options available that makes slot machines so popular.
Incidentally, in online casinos, slots are the second most-played games, with only poker being more popular. What is more, one in every twenty dollars is spun through a virtual slot machine. You see, slots have amassed great popularity. And, without a doubt, their enticing characters have played a huge part in making slots the second most-popular gambling game in the virtual world.
True, there are many types of slots, and all of them have varying symbols and characters. Yet, some characters seem to be more appealing than others. Below is our list with the most popular characters in slot games.
Thor, as we know, is the God of thunder in Norse mythology, and he is our favourite character from Microgaming’s Thunderstruck, an online slot game. Of course, Thor is not the only Norse thing about the game. In fact, Thunderstruck is based on Norse mythology and it even has intense drum music playing on background. In the game, Thor is used to achieve a matching payline.
To win, players have to achieve the right winning combination. Thor rewards winners by flickering his eyes like a flash and having his golden locks blown in a gust of wind.
That is the name of the spirited bull in the slot game Wild Toro. Toro is a very playful bull-lad sporting a big smile and a muscular upper body. During a spin, Toro goes head to head with a matador, plowing through each of the five reels and ultimately knocking the matador off the screen, leaving behind a trail of symbols.
Toro is arguably one of the most recognisable characters in the realm of online slot games.
3. Agent Jane Blonde
Agent Jane Blonde is the multidimensional spy and the star of an online slot game of the same name. While there are many symbols on the reels, such as lipstick and grenades, Agent Jane Blonde can substitute them all, i.e. she is the Wild in the game. What is more, any win featuring the Agent is doubled.
Agent Jane Blonde’s graphics are created in a comic style, which entices players and makes them a part of the amazing world of secrets.
NextGen’s slot game Medusa features the well-known snake headed mythical creature called Medusa. NextGen have done a great job with the game’s graphics which definitely help players submerse in the world of Medusa.

4. Gonzo the Conqueror
Based on the Spaniard Gonzalo Pizzaro, an explorer whose most notable discovery was the lost city of El Dorado, Gonzo the Conqueror is the leading character in the slot game Gonzo’s Quest. The game is a five-reel slot whose enticing conquest-themed design claims the attention of both beginner slot players and experts.
Microgaming’s slot game Ariana features a seductive mermaid of the same name. Ariana will accompany players to the deep sea, taking the role of an underwater heroine. Interestingly, the image of Ariana stacks on the reels as the game progresses, and her image is also the Wild in the game. The symbol of Ariana has the greatest value in the game.
If all reels stack with Wilds, different matching symbols will expand and create the possibility of various series of payouts.
Tarzan is the most famous character in this reel of the same name. The game’s story is centered around the fictional character Tarzan who, as we know, has been raised by a gorilla in the jungle. Interestingly, the symbol of Tarzan is not the only powerful one; there are four other powerful symbols – Jane, Leopard, Archimedes, and Monkey.
Tarzan is a jungle-themed online slot featuring 5 reels and 40 paylines.
Cleopatra is a character from an online slot game called Pharaohs of Egypt and she is arguably the most important personage in the game. She is renown for several reasons. First of all, she is one of very few women to hold such power. What is more, she was Egypt’s last pharaoh.
