Who Makes The Most Beautiful Slot Machines?

The first slot machine was built more than 120 years ago by an ingenious San Francisco mechanic called Charles Fey. His design was so successful that it spawned an entire industry – and it’s still going strong today. Out of the tens of thousands of games that you can play at a casino online, the vast majority are slot machines. Some of them are simple and basic, others, more sophisticated and flashy. But there are those select few that are, simply put, beautiful. And these developers are responsible for at least some of them.


NetEnt, today part of Evolution Gaming, was founded in 1996 as the online division of a land-based casino equipment manufacturing company in Sweden. Its first casino games were released in 2000, and they haven’t stopped coming ever since.

At one point, NetEnt was called “the Apple of online casino games” as a recognition for its quality games built with incredible attention to detail, with impressive graphics, exciting side games, and a special focus on their atmosphere and entertainment value.

Some of the most impressive – and beautifully crafted – games built by NetEnt include Aliens, based on James Cameron’s 1986 blockbuster, and Gonzo’s Quest, inspired by Gonzalo Pizzaro’s quest for the mythical City of Gold, El Dorado. Both games have won countless awards upon their release. “Aliens” is no longer available – unfortunately – but Gonzo’s Quest is, to this day, the most recognizable game ever released by the company.

Play’n GO

The folks over at Play’n GO started their careers as subcontractors working for other game providers – then, after seven years, they decided that they can do better than that. They founded their own company in 2004 and have been delivering high-quality casino games ever since.

Over the years, the company has launched more than 120 titles that are not only beautiful but also fun to play – true to their goal of delivering only the highest-quality content for their players. 

Over the years, Play’n GO has grown into a reliable and versatile casino game supplier with quite a few awards under its belt. 

Yggdrasil Gaming

Yggdrasil Gaming is a relative newcomer among the biggest online casino game developers – it has been around since 2013. Its founder is an industry veteran: Fredrik Elmqvist, former CEO of Net Entertainment (NetEnt). Right from the start, it was obvious that Yggdrasil will be a different game provider: its attention to detail and its bold choices for game themes made them stand out from the crowd.

Today, Yggdrasil is known for its colorful, beautifully crafted, and very entertaining games, some of them with unusual mechanics, others with side games and extra features, always capable of offering players something new to be excited about.
