See, we're known as Bally's in the USA, and we've been delivering the freshest casino games on the block since 1932. And now we've crossed the shores to deliver our same casino know-how to the UK. 

So, if you're looking for the inside scoop on the most popular slot game themes in the USA and UK, you're in the right place! A staple on land-based and online casino floors on both sides of the Atlantic, slot machines are a sure-fire hit with players keen for the chance to land a few bucks.

Intrigued? Of course, you are. Go on, keep reading to find out more.

Popular slot themes in the UK

Ready to go? Here are some of the top trends you can expect when you play online slots in the UK, kicking off with our top-class fishing-themed games.

Fishing slots

Head to any of the rivers, canals or lakes in the UK and you're bound to run into someone camped out with their trusty fishing rod. Fishing is a classic British pastime – so popular that it's become a hit theme in virtual games in the UK!

Dive into a fishing-themed slot game online and you'll find a variety of familiar icons hitting the reels, with rods and fisherman symbols helping to reel in the fish. 

Fishin' Frenzy instantly stands out as one of the most popular online slots to play from this exciting theme. These games have brilliant bonus features like free spins, multipliers and instant cash prizes. You'll even have the chance to win huge prizes on progressive jackpot slots like Fishin' Frenzy Megaways: Jackpot King, with up to 16,625 active paylines on each spin.

But we've got more where that comes from, folks - have a go at spinning the reels on online slot machines from the Big Bass franchise, including Big Bass Splash and Bigger Bass Bonanza. There's also Fishin' Bigger Pots of Gold, where you can land matching symbols to trigger winning combinations and more bonus rounds.

And here's the good news - we have plenty of fishing slots at Bally Casino, including all these top picks and more!

Irish-themed slot games

Ever dreamed of finding a pot of gold? You could do exactly that on our Irish-themed UK slots online.

The Emerald Isle is well-linked with lucky icons, so it's easy to see why so many British players love to play these slots online. Think of all the iconic Irish symbols and you're bound to spot them in these slots. We're talking leprechauns, four-leaf clovers, rainbows and more.

Another reason behind the success of these games is the bonus rounds available to experience. Take Rainbow Riches, an epic slots series which has bonus trails, free spins and monster multipliers across its list of games. In Rainbow Riches: Power Mix, the top prize in the Pot of Gold Bonus is 500x your wager - now that's finding the treasure!

There's more where that came from, too. Check out Irish Riches Megaways to discover cascading reels, free spins and the chance to hit a progressive jackpot, plus you can play with fortune spins in the Luck O' The Irish series.

Ancient Egyptian slots

Just like with our Irish games, UK slots players' connection with the Ancient Egyptian theme is obvious – spinning for treasure and gold on the reels.

One of the most iconic Egyptian-themed slot games online is Eye of Horus. As with many of the games we've already talked about, there's a whole series for you to enjoy. Not only is there Eye of Horus: Power 4 Slots with a slick Super Games bonus round, but you can also hit up Eye of Horus: The Golden Tablet, where the Golden Sphinx can appear on the reels!

Want some more? Spin the classic Vegas slot Cleopatra and trigger the Cleopatra Bonus to play with up to 180 free spins, or you can jump into Book of Ra Deluxe and cover the reels with Special Expanding symbols.

Classic American slot themes

We're bringing the iconic American gaming experience  - which means we're bringing our range of incredible online slot games too.

Want to know more? Here's a flavour of our favourite American slot themes shipped direct from Vegas.

Buffalo slots

UK players have fishing slots, US players have buffalo versions. These animals are a huge part of our American heritage dating back hundreds of years, and now they're engrained in our online games.

One of our most popular slots is Buffalo, where you can journey across the plains of America to win awesome prizes. You'll find Wild symbols on the reels, and if five Buffalo symbols land on one of your spins, you'll scoop a 300x bet multiplier! Keep an eye out for the classic Scatter symbols, as three or more of these appearing on a spin will punch your ticket to the Free Spins Bonus.

Want a buffalo game with hundreds of thousands of ways to win? You got it. Play Buffalo King Megaways and there could be up to 200,704 paylines each time you spin. This super slot has a Tumble feature which can trigger multiple winning combinations from a single spin, plus a Free Spins Bonus with multipliers worth up to 5x.

Asian-themed slots

Another big hit with American players is online slots with an Asian theme, with the colour and design of the games playing a huge part. Of course, the Asian culture of good luck and fortune helps with this too.

For an exciting Asian-themed slot game, say hello to the 88 Fortunes Megaways slot, with the potential for 117,649 paylines every time you spin the reels! Check out Asian-themed symbols on the reels, including Fu Bats - which are believed to bring good fortune - Gongs, and plenty of gold too. Don't miss out on the bonus round, with up to 15 free spins and a 6x multiplier up for grabs.

If you like the sound of that, then we think Fortune Coin Boost Classic will be right up your street. This MultiWay slot gives you 243 ways to win and three super bonus rounds to play. Free spins and multipliers worth up to 750x are on offer, plus the Jackpot Bonus. What's not to like?

Diamond slot games

Every slot player's dream is to land the crown jewels when they spin the reels, so it's no wonder games with a Diamond theme are some of the most popular across the Atlantic. Interested? Well, you can take in plenty of stellar diamond slots here with us!

We'll get you started with a classic casino slot to give you the authentic Las Vegas experience, and that's Da Vinci Diamonds. The tumbling reels in this game can create a chain reaction of winning combinations from just one wager, and there is a sparkling Free Spins Bonus too. Can you re-trigger the bonus? You bet. Up to 300 free spins can be won while you play!

Discover diamonds galore on the reels in Bonanza Megaways, with a cool 117,649 paylines possible every time you spin. The symbols to watch out for in this slick slot are Scatters, as they can secure your entry to the Free Spins Bonus, plus extra symbols may appear on top of the play area!
