Slots games with strong female leads

The growth of online slots has seen a dramatic change in how women are seen and, more importantly, portrayed in what was a mainly male-dominated activity. As online slots grew in popularity, it became evident that while men enjoyed playing slots, it was women that were driving this surge!

As more female players became drawn to this form of entertainment, the number of slots portraying strong female leads grew. For too long, the female characters in these games were portrayed as scantily-clad bimbos, in a clear attempt to appeal to the male audience.

Recently, the world of online slots has seen a dramatic change in how women are seen and, more importantly, represented. More and more suppliers realise that they need to attract - or at the very least not alienate! - this demographic, so the number of slots portraying strong female leads is constantly increasing.

In the 21st Century, even the male bastion of Hollywood has reformed and regularly produces movies and television shows where the lead character is a woman. Resultantly, slot developers such as those represented at Radiant Star Casino have taken notice and begun to produce slots that feature women as the main protagonist. Slots such as Wild Warriors and Skyway are popular slots because of the independent image their lead characters portray, while Victoria Wild and Legend of Athena are great examples of characters showing strength and determination.

While it's true that many slots still have an underlying image that objectifies women, others - like Agent Jane Blonde - are based on a cartoon theme with a focus on entertainment, and the portrayal is still positive.

If you’e tired of the endless parades of empty-headed 'babes' with cartoon bodies, try your hand at games with some of the strongest female lead characters in online slots. The list is long, but we have narrowed it down to the top six you can enjoy right now at Radiant Star.

 

1. Wild Warriors

Wild Warriors Slot

Powered by Playson, Wild Warriors takes you on an adventure into the world of the Celtic warrior. Like Boudicca fighting off the Roman legions, this slot features four fierce warrior women, protecting against the evil that threatens the peace of their homeland. This is a slot that showcases the lead characters’ independence, strength and determination.

Offering a wild symbol, scatters and free spins with the opportunity at winning big from colossal symbols, Wild Warriors is another fantastic addition that puts women in a positive role. Moreover, this is a slot that delivers heart-pounding sounds and the opportunity for big wins.

2. Skyway

Skyway Slot

Skyway is another example that portrays women in a positive light, especially as its lead character is clearly based on Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic, and someone who did much to break down the barriers for women in the male-dominated world of flying between the two World Wars. While it may include other characters, the star of the slot is clearly the female pilot, and her image is not glorified with the usual objectification. This is a positive step in the right direction in how women are portrayed in a video slot, and with a top payout of 9,000 coins and the inclusion of free spins and scatters, a great game in its own right!

3. Legend of Athena

Legend of Athena Slot

When it comes to portraying a strong female character, there can be none stronger or more impressive than a Goddess! Athena was the Olympian goddess of war, the patron of Athens, and a figure to whom even the fiercest Greek warriors would kneel in homage. A Red Tiger game, this slot features the Spear of Athena as a 3x multiplier, and a Battle Spins scatter symbol that awards 12 free spins when it lands on reels 1, 3 and 5. Another slot which is great fun to play, without having to demean or objectify women.

4. Victoria Wild

Victoria Wild Slot

Victoria Wild is a character clearly based on an Indiana Jones type archaeologist. Whereas in those movies the females always play the love interest 'bit parts' in this slot she's clearly the leading character. Powered by Gati, in association with the excellent Yggdrasil, the storyline sees Victoria exploring the desert, hunting for lost treasures. Threats include Sudden Sandstorms and Tornado Wilds, but if you manage to guide her to find seven lamps, you unlock the Secret Treasury, where wins and free spins can be multiplied by up to 25x! With wild respins, waterfall wilds, free spins and a 5x6 layout, this is a game that delivers on excitement!

5. Snow Queen Riches

Snow Queen Riches Slot

A 2By2 Gaming creation, Snow Queen Riches has you entering a frozen and mystical landscape that resembles the one made famous by those two young girls on the big screen. Featuring two sisters as the leading characters, their portrayal is considerate and gentle, absent of any glorification of their looks. With familar characters and backdrop, this is a very straightforward slot, but a great contender for a slot with a strong female lead - or two! Of course, the scatter, frozen wild feature and snow queen bonus are also nice touches!

6. Agent Jane Blonde Returns

Agent Jane Blonde Returns Slot

Agent Jane Blonde Returns is the sequel to the popular Agent Jane Blonde slot released by Microgaming. One of the 'cartoon' style slots we mention in the introduction, the theme is still clearly about independence and strength. Whether operating as a spy, taking on an underwater mission in full scuba gear, or enjoying an evening of sophisticated adventure, the message is clear – women like Jane Blonde can tackle anything they put their minds to. As an adventure-themed slot with a positive female lead, the basics of the game haven’t been forgotten. With free spins, scatters, and respins, this is a slot ready to take you on an adventure unlike any other.
