Most of the online casino games released in 2010 were online slots. In all over 100 such games must have gone live at online casinos. Now that the year is coming to an end it is time to look back and pick out the best five online slot games of the year.

At No. 5 is The War of the Worlds released by WagerWorks. This is based on the Jeff Wayne's musical adaptation of H.G. Wells' famous novel. The slot game is so rich in animations and audio that WagerWorks offers a full recommended version and a reduced version for slower Internet connections. The invasion from Mars follows the narration of the novel and is depicted through spectacular animations. Another innovative feature of this 100-payline slot game is that it has five rows of symbols across the reels. In the Fighting Machines Bonus players use cannons to gun down the Martian machines and score bonus points.

At No. 4 is Thunderstruck II released by Microgaming. This is a makeover of an earlier popular slot game and features four gods from Norse mythology including the Thor, the god of thunder. Thunderstruck II has a very innovative bonus game mechanism. Each god has a separate Hall the player has to activate the bonus game five times to clear one Hall. Each Hall is cleared in turn and hence after the bonus game is triggered 20 times the player achieves a special gold status.

At No. 3 is Return of the Rudolph from Realtime Gaming. The major value of this slot lies in that it is the third in a series that depicts a standoff between Rudolph and Santa. Each slot game was released for Christmas. In the first game Rudolph was the aggressor, in the second game Santa took revenge and in this game again Rudolph is on top. The symbols appear more battle scarred this year. The highlights are three exciting free spin bonus rounds.

At No. 2 is Pink Panther from Playtech. The animated Pink Panther is an eccentric character and all his lovable eccentricities have been captured in this branded slot game. He lurks everywhere, in the reels and outside them, displaying his inscrutable smile. But most of all he appears in the numerous bonus games. Dynamite, bombs and paint feature in these games and there is a progressive jackpot as well.

At No. 1 is The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This is the slot game based on the first of the trilogy and brings immense brand value. The hype that preceded and followed the release of the slot game was unprecedented. Promotions sending the winners to New Zealand where the film was shot were common. To those who love The Lord of the Rings this slot game is unparalleled with lifelike icons of the characters and clips from the movie played in each spin. But for the rest it must have been a bit of a let down.
