Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

A monthly report ranking the top online slot games for the month of March could not get any hotter with Konami’s 2019 release Jumpin Jalapenos Quick Strike at the top. The spicy title leads a long list of top games available in Michigan online slots.

The list is compiled by research and consulting firm Eilers & Krejcik Gaming (EKG), based in California. The company released a synopsis of its March 2023 EILERS-FANTINI Online Game Performance Report recently, showing how online slots currently rank in the U.S. iGaming market. The rankings are based on theoretical wins, or a player’s expected house win based on the amount bet.

EKG tracked 30 online casino sites this month, producing more than 40,000 data points across five U.S. jurisdictions (Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia).

The top 10 game developers on the list include Konami, Light & Wonder, Digital Gaming Corp., Evolution, AGS, Reel Play, and International Gaming Technology. Light & Wonder has two games listed in the top five for March. The company has anywhere from four to seven games that make it into the top 25 each month for slots.

Top Online Slots

Let’s look at the top five online slots for Great Lakes State players for the month and see where you can play them at online casino Michigan sites.

Jumpin Jalapenos Quick Strike

It doesn't get any spicier than this. Jumpin Jalapenos Quick Strike was ranked No. 4 last month and now sits at No. 1. The 5x3-reel slot features 30 lines and all kinds of Spanish-themed symbols that'll make you feel like you're in Mexico for some red-hot rewards.

The game is packed with cactus symbols, tacos, cute Mexican houses, and of course jalapenos. Plus, with a progressive jackpot, your next spin could send you jumping for joy with a big win. The minimum bet is $0.30 and goes up to a maximum of $225. The game has a mini and major progressive jackpot.

Scattered Jalapenos appear only on reels 2, 3, and 4. You’ll need three of them to launch the 12 free game features. The game has a Return-To-Player (RTP) rating of 96.03%. It appears that Jumpin Jalapenos Quick Strike is not available for Michigan casino apps.

Chicago Gold

This mafia-themed slot will transport you back to 1920 in, where else, Chicago. Played on a 5x5 reel grid, the game’s 40 paylines are set on the backdrop of an underground speakeasy filled with gangsters, guns, cash and crooked cops.

It’s a high-volatility slot with an RTP of 96%. Land on “Big Boss” for the highest payout, followed by a sexy Dame, Thug, and Cop. Lower-paying spade, heart, club, and diamond symbols finish the pay table. Hit a special feature and a bat-wielding Thug will bash the screen for higher payouts, or a Cop will fire off a few rounds to increase your wins.

The minimum bet is $0.20 with a maximum of $50. The game is available online at BetMGM online casino MI and BetRivers.
