It’s a celebratory time of year for a lot of people going into April. The pious among us are getting ready to break fasts and observe some of the most important days on the religious calendars (the Easter weekend and Pesach). Some people are starting to worry about going into diabetic shock with the amount of chocolate eggs and bunnies that are taking pride of place in the supermarkets. Many South Africans are getting ready to take advantage of the public holidays to give themselves some extra time off and rest and recharge before we head into Winter – although this year the dates don’t line up as fortuitously as they did last year when people took 6 days of leave and ended up with 18 days off from the office!
Whatever the reason to celebrate, April is always filled with excitement and anticipation. Here at the Online South Africa Casinos offices the vibe is one of anticipation because there are usually a bunch of cool Easter themed online slots that our favourite online casinos like to put out. And we’re all about hunting down bonuses and hunting down great online and mobile slots games rather than hunting eggs in the garden.
And while we’re waiting to see what the real money online casinos are bringing in terms of Easter online and mobile slots tournaments or bonuses, we have already found some pretty sweet Easter-style slots for ZA slots players to enjoy. Just be aware though, while there are tons of online slots that are given a set of bunny ears over their usual backgrounds (we’re looking at you any slot game with a Joker or Jester) we are looking for games that are thrilling, unusual, fun, or otherwise offer something a little different that we can enjoy in the lead up to the Easter weekend.
Some of our chosen titles are blatantly Easter-themed. But there are one or two that have a very vague link to Easter. Like, maybe they have a bunny. Or maybe they have an egg. Whatever, it’s our favourites list and we make the rules so just sit back, open up another chocolate covered marshmallow egg and enjoy our top 5 online slots for Easter for what they are – a great way to relax and enjoy some online casino games action!
Easter Eggs – Play’n GO
Kicking off our hunt for the top Easter-themed slots is Play’n GO’s actually rather good Easter Eggs slot. Sure, it’s so sweet it’s on the verge of triggering our diabetes and we highly recommend you stay away from choccy treats while you play this game, but it does have some exceptional graphics and great features.
The whimsical nature of Easter Eggs is set in a beautiful field of flowers and is packed with cute chicks, fluffy bunnies, and adorable lambs. It even has a trilling soundtrack that is so serene it may as well be the background music in a wellness spa.
But under all this cuteness is a 5×3 slot that is fast and filled with features. Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins, and a Pick Me bonus game take Easter Eggs from somewhat too sweet for words to an enthralling game that has the potential for big wins.
Wilds that double your win, Scatters that are multiplied by the total bet staked and activate Free Spins, and a bonus Pick Me game.
Land 3 or more Scatters to trigger Free Spins where you get to choose the number of spins and the multiplier you get: 5x Free Spins with a 6x multiplier, or 10x Free Spins with a 3x multiplier, or 15x Free Spins with a 2x multiplier.
Land 3x eggs in a basket symbol to trigger the Pick Me bonus game where you get to choose from three eggs to reveal prizes and maybe even a final egg and a big win!

Magic Eggs – Wazdan
A cute classic from Wazdan, Magic Eggs is a simple 3×3 online slot that is a favourite with online casino players from South Africa. The theme is evident with painted eggs everywhere and a happy, upbeat tune in the background. Graphics are great, crisp and sharp, while the background is a generic forest type scene.
What players will be looking for are the small bunnies that randomly appear alongside an egg. Land three of these bunnies on a payline and you can hit some big wins!
It’s a very simple slot. The classic 3×3 layout and only one real feature in the bunny special symbol to boost your wins, but it’s weirdly great to play. Maybe it’s the simplicity or maybe it’s the customisation to variance, speed, and wager amounts that Wazdan bring but Magic Eggs is fantastic Easter fun.

Chocolate Cash Pots – Inspired Gaming
One of two Inspired Gaming online slots that have made our easter list this year, Chocolate Cash Pots is a very cute real money online slot that South African online casino players will love. Cute painted eggs, bunnies, chicks, and lambs are high paying symbols with all other symbols covered in melted chocolate for a very Easter extravaganza feel. The sound is a bit twee but it is cute and does fit with the overall theme and gameplay.
What makes Chocolate Cash Pots a fit for the top 5 Easter games – apart from all that delicious chocolate – is the great features. What could be a very bland game is elevated by great graphics and superb extra bonuses like re-spins and Cash Collectors. Land 6 or more scatters and a bonus symbol on the reels and trigger the Cash Collector Bonus where a new set of reels filled with only Cash Pot symbols appear. Triggering symbols lock onto the reels for five re-spins.
It seems simple but it can lead to a bunch of eggs in your basket – by which we mean a bunch of cash in your bankroll!
Inspired Gaming are getting quite a name for bringing some interesting and quirky spins (sorry not sorry) to how we play online slots and online casino fans from Mzansi would do well to keep an eye out for this innovative studios portfolio. Like the next game on our list.

Eggspendables – Inspired Gaming
Okay, so not really an Easter theme but it still has lots of eggs so that counts, right? Eggspendables from Inspired Gaming is a fantastic example of out-of-the-eggbox thinking from an indie studio. Taking inspiration from the famous Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Expendables’ (and with a touch of Rambo in some of the styling – or maybe it’s Charlie Sheen in Hot Shots part Deux?), replacing all the brawny actions stars with eggs, and popping in a terrible pun as a title makes for a game that had us intrigued from the start – and then really egg-cited when we started playing.
Eggspendables is a 5×4 slot with a 96.80% RTP and a lot of playability. The graphics are great, funny and a definite rip-off of the 90’s war hero/action hero genre. Sound is good with a hearty and pacy music score that plays under the smooth reel action. But it’s all the features that make Eggspendables explosively thrilling.
Respins, mystery symbols, and a literal ton of Free Spins are all waiting if you unlock the Sergeant, Lieutenant, or General Bonuses. But it is NOT easy!
Unlocking the Sergeant Bonus means landing between 5 and 9 Sergeant symbols across the reels. Then you get to spin spoons to choose what your bonus is: multipliers, prizes, or the Lieutenant Bonus. At the end of the round the Sergeant Egg explodes and your return to the base game.
Unlocking the Lieutenant Bonus requires landing on it during the sergeant Bonus stage or landing between 10 and 14 symbols during the base game. The Lieutenant Bonus triggers 6x Free Spins plus more Free Spins if you land additional Lieutenant symbols during the Free Spins round. Plus, each Lieutenant symbol landed transforms adjacent vertical and horizontal symbols into Wilds.
Unlocking the General Bonus takes landing 15 to 20 Lieutenant symbols. The General Bonus award 5 to 15 Free Spins plus additional Free Spins for extra Lieutenant and General symbols PLUS Wilds!
It’s a wild ride for sure!

E-Force – Yggdrasil
When the world is in danger, it’s time for the E-Force to assemble! What this has to do with Easter is, on the surface, anyone’s guess. But Yggdrasil, one of OSAC’s favouritest online and mobile slots studios, does have some sort of method to the madness and mayhem that is this insane online slots game. From the name – E-Force could mean Egg Force or even Easter Force? – to the animated quirkiness that is the cast of weapons-wielding bunnies and painted eggs, there is a definite Easter theme going on here.
If Easter was hosted by Quentin Tarantino.
The cute bunnies we normally see over this festive period have been given a rather bloodthirsty task, hunting down the evil Fox. But they’re not just any bunnies. These are the pinnacle of action hero bunnies. If you thought that the 80s/90s action stars of Eggspendables were a little bit of a yolk (sorry) then you’re about to get a whole lot of egg on your face.
E-Force has a bunch of painted eggs as symbols (all of them carrying knives or ammo belts) but it’s the main cast of characters that really take the easter egg – these murderous bunnies are all modelled on famous action heroes. We have a Rambo bunny in red, a yellow suited Bruce Lee style bunny, a green bunny that is definitely Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando (he even has the rocket launcher), and, somewhat bizarrely, a blue Indiana Jones bunny? And then we have the Wild: a Robocop bunny!
It’s a frenetic frenzy of furry firepower and it’s fantastic! Not your usual Easter slot at all but well worth a spin for fans of 90s action heroes, extreme shoot ‘em ups, and Tarantino-esque over the top violence. Oh, and the graphics are awesome! Keep an eye out for the background animations and the different styles as you hit Free Spins.
What a way to end Easter with a quirky bang!
