Top 10 new online slot games

25 February 2019

A few weeks ago at the massive International Casino Exhibition (ICE) in London, several new slot games were showcased and introduced to the gaming community. Providers are constantly coming out with new ways for games to appeal to players. Here we take a look at the top 10 new slot games from online operators since our last edition back in early December. 10. Champions of Rome Last week, gaming supplier Yggdrasil released its new slot, Champions of Rome, set in the iconic Colosseum. In this slot, there are two different free spin modes. In Training Mode, players earn eight free spins and can keep all their winnings. In Deathmatch Mode, they have fewer spins to gather a certain amount of coins and get a multiplier of up to 4x on all their winnings. Jonas Strandman, Head of Slots at Yggdrasil, said, “Champions of Rome is a visually impressive game where players are in control of how much they want to risk. Seasoned slot warriors can satisfy their thirst for adrenaline by choosing to risk it all, while more casual players can make a more conservative choice with guaranteed winnings.” 9. Safari King Pragmatic Play is making players feel like they are in Africa with its latest slot, Safari King. Featuring elephants, zebras and rhinos, the game is a 4x5 slot with 50 paylines. There is a free spin mode for players to activate by landing three bonus symbols. Once the free spin mode is triggered, players can win even more free spins for each bonus symbol that appears. 8. Golden Grimoire The five-reel, four-row, 20-fixed-line slot Golden Grimoire form NetEnt features wild substitution and free spins. “Golden Grimoire opens the portal to another world full of ancient magic and mystery where anything can happen. The game builds suspense with every spin – if there’s one thing players should expect, it’s the unexpected!” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games. 7. Zombies Gone Wild Pariplay’s Zombies Gone Wild features 50 lines that pay both ways for even bigger rewards as well as a collection of wilds, free spins and jackpots. The game’s Mega Wilds occur when one of the game’s three heroic zombie hunters are exposed to radiation and become Wild zombies. During the ensuing free spins, the hunter expands to increase the chances of winning. The game also features three jackpots, each of which corresponds to one of the three zombie hunters. Players can contribute to the value of these respective jackpots with a winning line that includes a Wild zombie hunter symbol. The jackpot values are tracked with separate progress bars and award multipliers of x25, x75 or x200 of the bet amount, respectively. Other game highlights include the free spins feature, which awards up to 20 spins and can be re-triggered up to three times with the initial number of spins awarded. 6. Desert Gem If you are interested in treasure hunts, then Desert Gem by Kalamba Games is the slot for you. The game has players searching for gold and gems in order to unlock bonus rounds, free spins and bonus jackpots. This 4x5 video slot incorporates the popular HyperBet feature, enabling players to adjust game volatility and win potential by setting the number of gold symbols in the reels. Selecting more gold symbols increases the probability of hitting bonus jackpots and increases payline payouts. Supporting 1,024 ways pays and a max win of 5,763x bet, Desert Gem will be exclusively distributed on Oryx Gaming’s platform. 5. Lightning Strike Megaways In Blueprint Gaming’s recently introduced slot, Thor wields his war hammer to expand into stacked wilds and activate the respin mode. The gameplay features a variety of symbols inspired by Norse mythology, including the mythical tree Yggdrasil, which when visible reveals a mystery symbol and increases the chances of winning. Jo Purvis, Director of Marketing and Relationships at Blueprint Gaming, said, “Our spectacular new release is set to provide huge wins for players who dare to take on the gods of Asgard and strike lucky. With a popular theme to the game, accompanied with highly engaging mechanics, we’re sure Lightning Strike Megaways will be an attractive proposition for players across Europe and beyond.” 4. Fortune Lucky Fortune Lucky has an East Asian theme and was released by Live 5 Gaming just in time for Chinese New Year. Fortune Lucky is an 'All Ways Pays' game with expanding reels that pays up to 25,088 win-lines, with the potential to win in over 6,000 variations. This slot includes several features such as free spins, a dragon bonus and respin bonus for a chance to win up to 1,200 x5 of a kind in any spin. 3. Shogun of Time Shogun of Time is the latest online slot that was developed exclusively for Microgaming by Just For The Win. The game is a four-reel, 81-ways slot that includes wilds, scatters, transformational free spins and the Reel Split Re-spin feature. Players can trigger the Reel Split Re-spin feature by landing four symbols. Once activated, the feature will bring a fifth reel into the middle of the grid. The new reel offers an additional spin with the other reels locked into place. Shogun of Time is the 10th game crated by Just For The Win and is available for players to enjoy now. 2. Tiger and Dragon Tiger and Dragon is a 6x10-reel video slot by Red Rake Gaming with several features. In this game, the awarded symbols shift down following each spin, triggering a re-spin and giving way to new symbols. A side panel is activated letter by letter with each winning spin and keeps adding free spins if the player achieves five or more re-spins in the same spin. If five connected re-spins are not achieved, the panel resets to zero and the player starts all over again. Players can also trigger the Tiger and Dragon Roulette Minigame. In this mode, players can choose between the tiger and the dragon. If they choose correctly, the resulting multiplier is added allowing play up to 100x. 1. Jumbo Stampede iSoftbet launched a 4x6 slot featuring 4,096 pay ways set on the African plains. Jumbo Stampede is certified for all regulated markets, including the U.K., Belgium, Portugal and Estonia. The reels feature famous occupants of the Serengeti, including tigers, gazelles, rhinos and elephants, as well as traditional slot icons and a golden scatter symbol. The scatter symbol awards between eight and 50 free spins, depending on how many hit the reels simultaneously. During free spins rounds, the Jumbo symbols in the form of an elephant will pay as winning combinations even on non-adjacent reels. Also in this mode, wilds transform into 2x or 3x wilds to create more winning ways for players.
