There are plenty of fans of animated movies out there, many of them over the age of 18, and the world of online casino games has been tapping into that passion over the years, with developers creating a raft of well-liked cartoon based slot games and popular culture themes.

Keen to find out more about them? Read on to discover which are the most popular cartoon based slot games currently available to play – and learn how to play them!  

The Simpsons 

It will come as no surprise to you, surely, to learn that this iconic animated show has its own slot game. This hilarious and very quirky send-off of American society has been turned into a medium volatility 5-reel, 5-row 30 payline slot by WMS. The minimum bet for this slot is 30p per spin and the maximum bet is £30.  

During the course of gameplay you will be able to encounter various well-loved characters and settings from the show, such as the members of the Simpson family themselves, and places like Moe’s Tavern and the power plant where Homer works. Music and sound bites from the show help immerse you still further in the wacky world of The Simpsons.  

Ideal for both new and experienced players, this slot game comes with free spins and an instant prize pick bonus. 

Betty Boop 

Software developer, Bally Technologies, has created not just one but several Betty Boop slot games for you to try, all centring around the iconic cartoon character from the 1930’s. Among them, you will find Betty Boop Fortune Teller, Betty Boop Firehouse and Betty Boop Love Meter. 

The latter is a 5-reel slot with 40 paylines and an encouraging hit frequency of 45.4%. There are an impressive 9 bonus features and jackpots just waiting to be activated while you play, including the Playful Pudgy Jackpot, 5 free spins with a 5x multiplier, and 15 naughty free games.

Betty Boop Firehouse, meanwhile, is a 5-reel game with 300 paylines and a tantalising progressive jackpot which can ascend past the one million mark. More simplistic and generic than the other slots, despite being more recent, this game nonetheless comes with such features as the Mystery Stacked Reels and Betty’s 5 Alarm Scatter.

Last but not least, Betty Boop Fortune Teller features vibrant graphics and plenty of Betty herself, not to mention Bally’s U Spin technology, incorporated during the Fortune Wheel sequence. This Wheel gives you the chance to unlock one of six tempting bonus rounds.  

South Park  

Based on the hit TV show which first made a name for itself back in 1997, NetEnt’s South Park slot is a 5-reel slot which perfectly encapsulates the vulgarity of those famous Colorado third-graders. With an RTP of 96.7%, this 25-payline video slot comes with wilds, sticky wilds, bonus games, free spins and more. The sheer number of features keep gameplay engaging and fun – if a little gross at times.  

Final Thoughts  

These quirky cartoon based slots are some of the most popular of their kind, but you will find many more if you look, such as Playtech’s Flintstones game, Quickspin’s Dwarfs Gone Wild slot and the Big Bad Wolf, or IGT’s Family Guy. Whatever your taste in cartoons, you are sure to find a slot game to suit you.
