We live in a world that is seldom strictly black and white. However, there are many times when it is distinctly pink and blue. From hygiene products to advertising and even writing pens, many industries offer products or services catered specifically for men or women.
In the gambling world, that shouldn’t be any different. After all, there are certain things that men like that women may not be as fond of. Therefore, certain slot games may attract more of a crowd from the masculine demographic.
In this article, we’ll put aside all the sparkly graphics and pink background effects of modern slots. Instead, we’ll look at some of the best slots that men can play (perhaps while drinking a strong bourbon and smoking a cigar).
As expected, the first slot on the list involves sports—specifically the exciting sport of football/soccer. This fantastic game is (obviously) football themed and is developed by famous developer Yggdrasil. It also has a pretty acceptable RTP (return to player) of 96.1%.
The game makes use of a 5×4 grid that features 25 pay lines that you can win on. A wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. These wilds can also turn sticky and stay on the screen, leading to some wins that you’ll definitely want to celebrate.
Other features include a Glory Meter that gets filled each time you get a player on screen. Filling this meter will result in seven free spins and a Super Star mode. Aside from this, the gold and silver cup feature also awards free spins, cash amounts, and additional wilds.
The main feature is triggered when you get three or more scatters on the screen. This kicks off the free spins bonus. Each player appearing on the screen will shoot a penalty kick during this bonus. If they score, they will remain as a sticky wild symbol. This can help you win big with little effort.
Loosely based on the popular video game Cyberpunk 2077, Cyberpunk City is developed by Bovada Gaming and plays directly into the dystopian dream of every guy. It also doesn’t hurt that the game has an RTP between 95% and 96%.
Using a standard 5×3 grid, the game offers 20 pay lines that are fixed and cannot be amended. Alongside these is a random progressive jackpot that can lead to jaw-dropping jackpots that will make your man cave dreams come true.
The game has a standard wild that substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. If you get this wild in the third reel, it will expand to take up the whole reel and lead to even bigger wins. There is also a random wild feature that will transform any high-winning symbols into a wild for that spin.
You can trigger the bonus round by getting the Cyber symbol in the first reel and the Punk symbol in the fifth reel. This bonus will give you ten free spins and make the game descend from the street level to the number of free spins you have left. During free spins, all wins are increased by a three-times multiplier.
Themed after the iconic comedic movie of the same name, this slot was developed and released by BluePrint Games. The game features snips of audio from the film, including some comments you’ll need to be sure can only be heard by you. Luckily, slot sites require you to be over a certain age anyway.
A standard 5×3 grid format offers 20 pay lines in the regular game mode. Triggering the bonus will bump up the paylines to 40, though these will again revert to 20 once the bonus game is finished. All this is offered with a 95.81% RTP.
Wilds are present in the form of the foul-mouthed teddy himself and substitute for all symbols except the scatter. During any spin, Ted may awaken and give you one of six possible bonuses. These are Laser Gun Infections Wilds, Psychedelic Super Spin, Beer Shuffle, Psychedelic Colossal Spin, TV Streak, and Psychedelic Bonus Boost.
Each of these offers unique ways to help you win big and is separate from the main bonus game. The actual bonus can be triggered by getting three scattered Thunder Buddy Bonus symbols. Here again, you will be spoilt with five different bonus games to choose from. These are the Wheel of Fortune Bonus, Bar Crawl Bonus, S Mart Free Spins, Ted Free Spins, and Ted Big Money Bonus.
Fishin’ Frenzy (Megaways)
If you’re a man that prefers the old-school type of slot (that includes original Vegas sounds), then this collaboration of BluePrint Gaming and Reel Time Gaming is perfect for you. Aside from the regular version of the game, a Megaways option is also available that can lead to some impressive wins.
The regular game uses a 5×3 grid that offers ten pay lines. The Megaways version lets you play with a 6×4 grid and has a staggering 15,625 ways that you can win. Amazingly, however, the base game has a greater RTP of 96.12% versus 96.10% offered by the Megaways version.
The game doesn’t have any wild symbols, which is rather strange. However, it does have a bonus round that can be triggered by getting three or more scatter symbols. You can win up to 20 (regular game) or 50 (Megaways game) free spins depending on how many scatters you get. In the Megaways version of the game, it is possible to purchase the bonus round for a price.
It is possible to get the wild fisherman symbol during the free spin bonus. Should this symbol appear, the fisherman will ‘catch’ all the fish on the screen and give you their combined value as a prize. This could be a substantial prize depending on how many fish you have during that spin.
