While there are of course plenty of software developers around providing high-stakes slots of all kinds, it’s fair to say Playtech has earned an enviable reputation for delivering some of the best. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that most of the titles on our countdown of highest stakes slots come courtesy of the Isle of Man-based market leaders.
Here’s the list in full:
1. Piggies and the Wolf
It may seem a little incongruous to some that an innocent bedtime story like Three Little Pigs could have anything to do with high-stakes slot gambling. Think about it through – the story itself focuses on a determined fellow who, despite a number of setbacks, eventually gets what he deserves. As gambling allegories go, it’s actually quite motivating, and more so when it’s considered you can win 2,500x your stake if Wolfie is successful in the bonus round.
While Playtech's Piggies and the Wolf online slot boasts a number of cool features, there’s just one reason why it stands proudly atop our countdown and that's the amount of moolah you can wager on any given spin: £2,500. No, we’re not telling porkies, it really is possible to throw two-and-a-half grand at this 50-payline, five-reel slot on every go. That’s a lot of bacon.
Piggies and The Wolf can be tricky to find, but William Hill offers your highest stakes on this list.
2. Ghosts of Christmas
With its atmospheric visuals (including gorgeous animations) and evocative audio effects, Playtech’s classic homage to A Christmas Carol is almost as entrancing as Dickens’ original tale of greed and redemption. It’s rather odd, however, that a 20-payline, five-reel online slot based on a penny-pinching miser offers such high stakes.
And they are high too, with £1,200 (not Guineas) being the max bet available on each round. Throw in a Wild element proffering wins of 10,000x your line bet and side games teasing instant cash rewards and it’s easy to see why so many high-rollers make merry with Ghosts of Christmas all throughout the year. God bless us, everyone!
If you're looking to hoard some money, William Hill has you covered
3. Santa Surprise
We’re sticking with the festive theme as we reach number three on our rundown of high-stakes online slots. Yep, it’s Santa Surprise, a joyful offering from Playtech that allows you to bet as much as £1,000 of your Christmas money from granny on each round.
Moreover, this five-reel, 20-payline slot also delivers a Wild that even Santa himself would baulk at, dishing out as much as 10,000x your line bet! Land that beauty and it really will feel like all your Christmases have come at once.
If you think you're on the nice list, head to Videoslots Casino and see if Santa has a present for you.
4. Age of Gods: Goddess of Wisdom
It just isn’t possible to compile any kind of slots-based list without including a mythology game somewhere. And this one – yet another Playtech title – is an absolute doozy. Along with lashings of Ancient Greek folklore and a top-drawer Battle game feature, the 20-payline, five-reel AoG: Goddess of Wisdom online slot has the added bonus of keeping no fewer than four mystery progressive jackpots up its rather random sleeves. Oh, and you can punt as much as £1,000 on every single spin, too.

5. Monopoly Big Event
It’s somewhat ironic that a brand so synonymous with high stakes speculation just manages to creep on to the tail end of our list. Still, with a max bet of £500 available on each spin, this fab slot from Barcrest (take that, Playtech) doesn’t exactly fall short in the old high-roller stakes. It should also be noted that Monopoly Big Event offers one of the highest Return to Player percentages around, with an incredible 99% RTP on hand whenever you play in Big Bet mode. Unsurprisingly, this makes this 20-payline, five-reel offering an ideal slot for fledgling ‘Whales’ to learn the ropes at.
