Top 10 new online slot games for spring 2020

27 April 2020

Here in the U.S., as land-based casinos slowly begin to announce reopening plans, online casinos are still thriving during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As new online slots continue to be released, we take a look at the top 10 new games released since our last edition.

10. Sheriff of Nottingham
The reels of this slot are set in the middle of Sherwood Forest as Robin and his band of outlaws try to avoid the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and steal his riches along the way.

The game has four in-game modifiers which are triggered whenever Robin Hood delivers a Royal Letter. Players choose one of the three letters to reveal a Bonus Add, Sheriff Wilds, a Wanted Spin or a guaranteed Win Spin feature.

There are also two bonus rounds in this game. Robin Riches Free Spins are triggered when bonus symbols land on reels 1, 3 and 5. The Wanted Respins are triggered when five or more Merry Men land on the reels, with each new character resetting the respins.

9. Troll Haven
Troll Haven is a five-reel, three-row and 25-payline slot, where Troll — the main character — is the wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter. In this game, one or more wild symbols appearing as a substitute symbol in a winning combination doubles the win.

Three scatters on the reels will trigger free games. When the feature is triggered, the player can choose the number of free games 23, 16, 10, 5 and their associated multiplier (2x, 3x, 5x, 10x).

“The slot is already available for just a few casinos during the pre-release and we must say it easily captures players’ attention and shows great results! The players are loving the flavor of the Scandinavian mythology and Nordic forest,” shares the head of customer account department, Gretta Kochkonyan.

8. Multifly!
In Multifly!, five chameleons have their eyes set on fireflies and the more they catch, the bigger the reward for players.

The game features dropdown wins, wilds and the MultiMAX feature that allows every win to be multiplied by up to five different multipliers.

Players can trigger the free spins round where multipliers don’t reset by landing three of the chameleon scatter symbols.

7. Blown Away
Blown Away, the latest addition to the Sydney-based company’s portfolio, is set aboard a fishing ship which has been thrown off course.

When a tornado lands on the reels, the lowest royal symbol is removed and another re-spin awarded, which can continue until there are no remaining royal symbols.

Three Boat symbols trigger free spins in which removed royals remain removed for the duration of the spins.

Peter Causley, CEO and co-founder of Lightning Box, said: “We’re hoping this newest title will blow players’ socks off, particularly with the tornado respin feature which could boost payouts by up to seven times.”

6. Lara Jones is Cleopatra
Lara Jones is Cleopatra takes place inside the tomb of the famous Egyptian Queen.

It is a 5x3 video slot with ten pay lines and a maximum win approaching 17,000x. The base game offers single-line wins of up to 3,000x. When the Cleopatra Spin is triggered, players see all Queen, Jack and 10 symbols being replaced with the top-paying Cleopatra symbol potentially generating wins in excess of 1,000x.

Three scatters in the base game will transport the player to deep inside Cleopatra’s tomb and grant them an initial 10 free spins. During free spins, any wilds that land on the reels become sticky wilds for all subsequent free spins.

5. TNT Tumble
TNT Tumble is a 5x7 slot where players mine for valuable crystals and big wins of over 12,000x stake.

The game features TNT blocks which destroy a layer of dark stone when they fall, as well as drill wilds which travel down the reels racking up big prizes to add to the win.
The free spins bonus round is awarded when all dark stone blocks in the main game are destroyed.

Simon Hammon, Relax Gaming CPO, said, “TNT Tumble is set to become a new fan-favorite, offering players the familiar excitement of the Tumble series with a range of new mechanics that get hearts racing.”

4. Fruit Rainbow
Fruit Rainbow is a colorful take on the classic fruit machine, with a 5x4, 40-payline grid stacked with fruit symbols, while wilds take the form of a rainbow.

The diamond acts as a scatter symbol and if five land on the reels on any singular spin, players will receive a payout of 500x their stake. If the entire grid fills with the stacked rainbow Wilds, users will be awarded with 2,000x their bet stake.

Melissa Summerfield, Chief Commercial Officer at Pragmatic Play said, “Our portfolio offers a unique and diverse collection of games and Fruit Rainbow gives players a classic fruit machine experience with a thrilling twist.”

3. Hot Cross Bunnies: Game Changer
Hot Cross Bunnies: Game Changer is a five-reel, 20-fixed line game. It is also the second game to include the Game Changer bonus round, which is triggered by boxed symbols landing around the edge of the reels to create a game board.

During the round, players roll the dice to move from square to square, landing on symbols that determine the prize awarded.

If a Game Changer feature is activated with reels one and five showing three Pink Bunny symbols on each, it is impossible to lose and the player will keep traveling around the board and collecting prizes until they have reached the maximum pay out of 1,000x.

2. Wild Sorcery
The mobile-first slot triggers free spins when three wilds appear, with players able to choose the number of spins and the multiplier to give them control of their winnings.

Wild Sorcery also features potions, spell books and other illustrations of the dark arts.

Ollie Castleman, Head of Marketing, OneTouch, said, “We are constantly looking for ways to impress our players and this latest truly mobile-first offering should do exactly that. We look forward to watching the magic unfold.”

1. The Wild Hatter
The 5x4 slot with its 30 paylines is framed by a golden gate and set in a magical, mushroom-filled garden.

The Wild Hatter’s reels are populated with characters from the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, including the Teapot, and the top-paying Cheshire Cat, which spin to an enchanting soundtrack that keeps players coming back for more. Wilds trigger a special respin feature, locking one symbol type and awarding a consecutive respins and multipliers.

Carl Ejlertsson, Director of Business Development at Red Tiger, said, “The Wild Hatter takes players on a thrilling tour involving one of the best loved characters in literature. It was a real hit when it went out exclusively and I’m excited to see how well it performs as part of other operators’ portfolios.”
