Top 10 Games of 2023

It’s the very last day of what has been quite a year of casino games. We’ve had the usual craziness from Nolimit City, but we’ve also had some bangers from Hacksaw and probably my favorite game of the year from AvatarUX, Donkey and The GOATS. However, as many years in the game have taught me, the games that reviewers love aren’t always what the players actually gravitate toward. This year is no different.

There are a few new additions to the list but few surprises. The number one spot is secured by the same game that has held the top spot almost since its release in 2020. Without any more anticipation, here are the top ten most popular games amongst BitStarz players in 2023.

10. Aztec Magic Deluxe – BGaming


Play Now

This is only one of four BGaming games that made it onto the list. It’s also the first of two Aztec Magic games to make it onto the list if you can believe that. Aztec Magic Deluxe was originally released way back in 2018, and while it looks like it may slip off the list for 2024, it’s hanging about for now.

The 5-reel slot is fairly basic, with a wild and a scatter that unlocks 10 free spins. That’s really about it. The slot has low volatility and an RTP rating of 96.96%.

9. Dragon’s Element – Platipus


Play Now

Platipus games are also a staple in the top ten list, and Dragon’s Element has been a part of it for much of its time since being released in 2020. The slot has a very tranquil Eastern theme that definitely has a meditative effect.

The slot has a pretty wild free spins feature that will award as many as 50 free spins at triggering. The craziness continues once a round of free spins starts with the Wild Connect feature that gives you a shot at covering the entire 5×4 slot with wild symbols.

8. Magical Wolf – Platipus


Play Now

Released in 2018, Magic Wolf has this Arctic tundra theme that is always surprisingly popular amongst players. The slot has a really fun free spins feature that allows you to choose between three different rounds, each with its own special wild bonus feature.

7. Blackjack – BitStarz Originals


Play Now

We were incredibly excited in 2022 when we released our first drop of BitStarz Originals, games developed by us for our players. The games are hyper-focused on the purest form of the game types they explore, valuing speed and entertaining gameplay over all else. We weren’t sure how our games would be received, being new to the development game. Our worries, however, couldn’t have been more unfounded. We couldn’t be more humbled by how our players embraced our BitStarz Originals games.

In the second year of the release of our first batch of games, three have landed in the top ten most popular of the year. The first on the list is Blackjack. It’s a game that I’ve always loved and one that continues to entertain.

6. Aztec Magic – BGaming


Play Now

The second Aztec Magic game on our list, this time the original, the OG, was released back in 2015. That also makes it the oldest game on the list, and the graphics sure show that. That has, however, not stopped this BGaming slot from being one of the most popular of the year. There is not a lot to this one, with the slot featuring a wild and scatter symbol that unlocks a very basic free spins feature.

5. Gold Rush Frog – BGaming


Play Now

From the oldest to the newest. Gold Rush Frog was released earlier this year as a BitStarz exclusive from BGaming. That’s right, you can’t find this one anywhere else. It features the ever-popular BGaming frog character and has an impressive array of bonus features. It does have high volatility, which is a bit of a bummer, but that clearly hasn’t stopped people from playing it.

4. Slot – BitStarz Originals


Play Now

The second BitStarz Originals game on the list. Slot is, if you haven’t guessed it yet, a slot game. It features five reels and a pub floor fruit slot aesthetic. If you’ve ever played one of those slot games down the pub on a Saturday evening, this one is going to fill you with nostalgia.

3. Plinko – BitStarz Originals


Play Now

Now, I could just say Plinko is Plinko, but what is Plinko? Do you know what I mean? Well, put simply, placing a bet on Plinko drops a coin into a maze of pins, with the coin eventually making its way to the bottom to fall into one of 11 baskets, each with its own multiplier value. It’s really that simple. If you’re keeping count, this is the third and final BitStarz Originals game on the list.

2. Wild Spin – Platipus


Play Now

Wild Spin is second, but it misses out on that number-one spot by a long, long way. Our number-one slot of the year drew as many players as Wild Spin and Plinko combined. That being said, Wild Spin from Platipus does take the number two spot.

Released in 2020, Wild Spin is essentially a supercharged fruit slot with a jackpot bolted into it. This pushes it into a number of different niches, making it unsurprising that it appealed to so many of our players.

1. Elvis Frog in Vegas – BGaming


Play Now

What is it with this fucking frog? I don’t get it. What makes Elvis Frog in Vegas from BGaming the most popular slot month after month and year after year? Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with the game. It’s got a round of free spins and a hold-and-win bonus game, in addition to a few other interesting bonus features. But it is by no means the only slot game with a bunch of interesting features. This one continues to be an enigma to me. It is, however, once again the most popular game amongst BitStarz payers for the year.
