Soon to be traveling for business or pleasure? Good for you! Unfortunately, before you’re sipping on an ice-cold beverage beneath a particularly leafy palm tree somewhere exotic, or sightseeing in one of the world’s most sought-after cities, you’ll need to make it through the long-haul flight with your sanity intact.

Luckily, there are plenty of in-flight entertainment options that await you onboard, such as watching a movie or listening to music. Looking for something a bit more exciting? How about playing your favorite online casino games? While airlines themselves don’t offer casino-based entertainment at this stage, it’s still possible to play your go-to games on your mobile device in flight mode! Read on for our top picks to keep you busy regardless of whether you’re on the ground or in the air.

The Best Online Slots To Play During Your Flight

Online slots are luck-based casino games and there are so many unique themes to explore with different Return to Player (RTP) percentages and maximum wins. You can also choose between games with low volatility (more frequent, low-value wins) and high volatility (less frequent, higher value wins.) Here are our top picks. 

Primate King

Theme: Animal/Jungle

RTP: Customizable RTP ranges from 94.68% to 95.66%

Volatility: Medium to high

Maximum win: 3,800x your stake

Stand-out feature: The bonus meter is an interesting addition to the game, with three fillable slots in total. The more gold coins you collect, the more slots you’ll fill, the more wilds you’ll unlock and the more multipliers you’ll earn.

King of Crystals

Theme: Medieval/Fantasy

RTP: 96.40%

Volatility: High

Maximum win: 10,000x your stake

Stand-out feature: There are three bonus rounds to look forward to when playing King of Crystals. Get five free spins and expanded reels when the Nudging Wilds Bonus Round is triggered. The Jackpot Bonus Round earns you 10 free spins and the chance to snag one of four impressive jackpots. Finally, the Multiplier Bonus Round gets you five free spins and a random multiplier of up to x10 per spin.

Adventures of Doubloon Island

Theme: Pirate

RTP: 96.01%

Volatility: Medium-high

Maximum win: 3,333x your stake

Stand-out feature: Adventures of Doubloon Island boasts a fun-filled – and potentially profitable – free spins feature. Land at least three of the game’s scatter symbols (the treasure chest) anywhere on the reels to grab an instant reward of up to 100x your stake and trigger your free spins (up to 20 based on the number of scatters on the grid.) During this round, all low-paying symbols disappear, allowing for maximum profitability. Strive to land at least three more scatters during a single free spin to retrigger the round.

Chicken Fox Jr

Theme: Animal/Cartoon

RTP: 95%

Volatility: Low

Maximum win: 2,733x your stake.

Stand-out feature: The Fox Jr Bonus is one of the reasons behind this title’s growing popularity. This bonus means a mischievous fox can appear at any time during the base game to provide you with one of two boosters: either an extra scatter symbol or a flurry of high-paying symbols to replace all existing low-paying symbols on the grid.

Cleopatra II

Theme: Egyptian

RTP: RTP ranges between 93.17% and 95.88%

Volatility: Medium

Maximum win: 50,000x your stake (making this one of the most potentially profitable online casino games around!)

Stand-out feature: If the whopping maximum win doesn’t immediately get your attention, the free spins bonus round sure will. Triggered by landing at least three scatter symbols (the sphinx) anywhere on the playing grid, you can earn up to 20 free spins, with an increasing multiplier per spin (starting from x1.) Retriggers are available for up to 50 spins, which means you could end up with a 50x multiplier at best.
