Big Names and Big Games

This week proved to be a big one on the online slot game front. There were 21 new games to contend with, so will any of them prove to be exciting for you to play? We are going to go through them all now, and you will see some impressive titles and software developer names in the mix here. Are you ready to explore?

Get ready for The Final Countdown by BTG

That sounds very final, doesn’t it? Could our first reviewed game of the week be the last one you would want to play, or will it prove to be the most exciting one of all?

It does come packed with plenty of dramatic features, including The Countdown Roaming Wild, Cloning Reels with a Cloning Wild, and Heading for Venus with a Velocity Wild. This is clearly no ordinary game, as you can see. It’s a big one too, with six reels and four icons on each of them. Expect to see lots of sparkling gems in this one, not to mention a backdrop that features some futuristic-looking buildings.

The man seen in the opening image is a wild, and the woman seen there too can appear larger than life, taking up more than one space and awarding a multiplier value as well. Each person offers their own version of a free spin feature should you get that far. Which one will you pick?

Red Tiger takes us into Spin Town

What is Spin Town? We’ve never come across this place before, but there’s a big red bus waiting to take us all there. It looks pretty crowded though, as you can see when you spot the opening image for this new game from Red Tiger.

This game features plenty of wilds though, and that is always a good thing. According to the information we have about the game, it features a Wild Crossing element where wilds can appear at the edges of the five reels. Whenever the lights are red, the wilds remain where they are. If the lights change to green, the wilds move across the reels with each spin.

There are Sleepy Wilds that are slow moving and may stop in position, and Speedy Wilds that might move two reels at once instead of just one. There are Couple Wilds too, so it looks as though there is romance in the air! You might see them change into Wild Umbrellas with a 2x multiplier on anything won with their help. Throw in numerous other wild features too and you can see Spin Town is a place you’ll want to visit real soon.

Meet the Vikings Frozen Gods by AGames

Three Gods are seen in the opening image designed to promote this game from AGames. If you haven’t heard of AGames before, this one might be the ideal way to get an introduction to them. The game looks impressive, indeed – there are Gods to spot wherever you look. The game offers five reels and 25 paylines, so the format is not going to be different to many other games you’ve probably already played. The controls are all designed to sit underneath the reels and are easy to understand too.

If you put together a successful combination, you can expect to be shown it clearly on the screen. The special symbols, i.e. the wild for example, are labeled to enable easy identification. You might also get the chance to score some free games if things go your way. Meanwhile, there is a Gods Meter that indicates the potential for multiplier bonuses. There are some interesting elements in store for you if you give this game a try. While the god theme is hardly new, there are some parts of this game that take things in a different and refreshing direction.

Pariplay introduces Rumble Rhino

The way the lettering has been designed for this game gives us a chance to enjoy some great features in Rumble Rhino. It recalls a jungle theme, and the mention of a rhino bears that out too. This has launched to great popularity already, so will you enjoy Rumble Rhino as much as other players seem to be?

There are Mega Symbols in action here, not to mention a bonus game that features lots of diamonds. Better yet, there is something here we have never seen in play before. According to Pariplay, 10% of their profits from this game will be donated to Save the Rhino International. That is a great thing to do, and we are sure that is part of the reason why the game has been successful so far. With a wild rhino able to appear as a giant 4 x 4 symbol on reels two through to five, not to mention a mystery mask popping up too, this game is big for many reasons.

1x2 Gaming releases Rainbow 3x3

You won’t be surprised to see a rainbow in all its glory appearing in the main image for this game. The 3 x 3 part of the title is seen on a pot of gold too, so it is obvious how this game might progress.

This isn’t a slot game as such – rather, it shows you nine sets of three icons. Getting three identical icons on a paid line will produce the relevant prize for that icon. They all have a luck- or Irish-based theme, with balloons in Irish colors, beer, a rainbow, and a pipe all appearing in the paytable. This is a simple game released in time for St Patrick’s Day, but if you fancy a change from the usual slot action, Rainbow 3 x 3 could be worth a shot.

The Grand is open for business from Quickspin

This year seems to be introducing some more innovations and unusual formats from many sources. Quickspin has played around in this way too, and here we get another six-reel game with a 3-3-4-4-5-5 format that gives you an impressive 214 ways to win. The Grand is filled with the four suits seen in a regular card deck, along with a sparkling red WILD that is very easy to see, since it says it is wild.

Watch out too for the free spins icon which looks like a badge of sorts. This is labeled as well, so you shouldn’t have any trouble spotting it. You’ll get some free spins if enough of them appear. Meanwhile, the bonus icon can show up on the third, fourth, and fifth reels. If it does, you get a feature to play and some extra spins too. The random feature element can also occur in a base game spin. Sync, Wilds, and Nudge are the three you could spot and take advantage of. Who knows how they might work?

This is one of those games that looks impressive, but which turns out to be much better than you’d think at first glance. Are you ready to check out The Grand today?

Cash Vandal is ready for action from Play’N Go

Who or what is a Cash Vandal, we wonder? The image that promotes this game seems to show us a can of spray paint, with Vandal written on it. Are we to assume this game is about graffiti? It’s an odd and unusual theme, if so. That can could be useful though, because if the golden version appears on the fourth reel, it will trigger a feature to play.

Meanwhile, finding the golden can together with the regular red can means you can get a city feature. This will be either London, Paris, or Berlin. Find the gold can along with two red cans and you secure some free spins, so you can see how these cans come in useful as you play. Each one of those free spins will include a city feature too, so there is a lot to watch for as you play here.

The screen is smaller than you might think, with four reels coming into play here. Cash Vandal does include some cash, with some gold bars also factoring into the game. The wild is funky looking, like a 3D version of a graffitied word, and you will see it popping up as a giant symbol occasionally too. Watch out for Synchronized Reels too – it keeps on getting better, doesn’t it?

Yggdrasil has unearthed a Dwarf Mine

What is a Dwarf Mine? We are about to find out, thanks to some hard work from Yggdrasil. The mining theme has been seen numerous times in the world of slots, so are we digging up that theme again here? We are, but it does of course look excellent in the hands of Yggdrasil. We have a 5 x 4 format here, with a miner looking on from the right of the game. We are underground, as you’d expect, and the controls are all designed to fit with the dark and murky theme.

The screen can get bigger during play, so there is a chance you might net up to 16,807 ways to win prizes during the game. The Expanding Machine can be seen underneath the reels, and if this cranks into gear, you will get more potential ways to net prizes. There are also five free spin modes available in the Dwarf Mine slot, giving you yet more to appreciate.

We also get the chance to collect some crystals, with a new player bonus giving you a few to start with. Watch out for these to be collected in the containers on the left of the reels. Read the instructions carefully as they will indicate how prizes are calculated. Add in a bonus symbol that helps expand the reels and you can see this game gives you plenty to enjoy.

Viking Wilds hits the internet courtesy of Iron Dog

Yes, we have a Viking theme here – something you will undoubtedly have spotted before. Does that mean Viking Wilds could disappoint? It could, but we don’t think it will. There are five reels here, giving us what can be an unusual format that once again proves this is the year of something different. We rather like that. In this case, we will see Expanding Reels in play. The regular reels can expand during play, giving you 1,024 ways to win to start with, and possibly up to 3,125 if they reach their maximum size. The starting format is 5 x 4.

You can expect to see several Viking-style icons appearing on the screen during play, although no gods pop up in this game. There is a wild that appears over reels two through to five, with the power to give you the keys to unlock the free spin feature. There is also a sticky wild that might show up on the third reel of the game. Oh, and did we mention there’s an expanding wild too? The game is called Viking Wilds, after all!

The game also includes a tumble feature, which occurs whenever you get a successful combo. Everything involved in the win will be destroyed, allowing the above symbols to fall into their places and new ones to appear too. With the expanding reels in play, there is a chance to net up to 20 free games as well.

Who is the Ruby Hunter from Kalamba Games?

You can see here standing to the side of the title image in the Ruby Hunter slot from Kalamba Games. You’ll see a ruby sparkling away too, of course – something that probably won’t come as a surprise. There is much to appreciate in this game, as the loading screen reveals soon enough. There could be free spins, a Hyper Bonus that enables you to buy free spins, and perhaps some Bonus Jackpot Respins as well.

Most interesting to start with is the presentation of the game. We get six reels – something that is becoming quite common in new game releases in 2019 thus far. These give us a diamond-style board with a 3-4-5-5-4-3 formation to look at. Some symbols can appear stacked too, which could produce some successful lines for you.

The Hyper Bonus means you can select whichever free spins bonus you would like to play and simply play it. There is a charge for this, of course, but it does put you in control if you would rather not wait to play it. We have seen this popping up a few times this year already. Ruby Hunter looks set to be a good release from Kalamba Games this month.

NextGen Gaming gives us 300 Shields Extreme

A new game from this outfit is always worth checking out. 300 Shields Extreme gives you the chance to collect scatters during free games if you get to play them. There are various stages in 300 Shields Extreme, and collecting those scatters enables you to achieve that outcome. There is a chance to scoop up to 17,773x your wager if you reach the free game feature, so perhaps that is one reason why other players are checking this out. Watch for the shield that must appear three times to get you through to the free spin feature.

The game screen is set against a battlefield by the look of it, with a 5 x 3 format you’ll have seen before. Expect to see arrows, ships, shields, and helmets all featuring among the symbols in play. The theme involves the Spartans, and collecting those shields progresses you through Sparta. While there is a chance to use a gamble feature, we’d advise you to ignore that and focus on enjoying the other features of the game instead.

Spy Rise is unleashed by Playtech

Spy Rise sounds a lot like High Rise, and you’ll see some high-rise buildings greeting you when you load this new Playtech title. This one is already enjoying some success, and we hope you might get some good results if you give it a shot as well.

The game involves some characters who are clearly spies, touting some weapons and some sharp suits too. The game works on a 5 x 4 format with various currency symbols appearing as the lower-ranked symbols. There is a chance to get some free games here, and there is also an upgrade feature. Watch for the wild, shown as that word in gold, and the Spy Rise logo that can reveal some free games if you get it on reels one, three, and five all at once.

Grab yourself a Ticket to Paradise with Asylum Labs Inc

Who would turn down the chance to grab a ticket to paradise? This isn’t a real one, of course – merely the title of a new slot from Asylum Labs. Not familiar with that outfit? What better way to change that than to give this game a try?

There are some great elements included in this glorious game too. For example, you can see an Island Adventure planned out on the screen if you make it that far in the game. Meanwhile, there are some Underwater Treasure Free Spins on offer, not to mention a proper Luau Party! With bonus masks to find to trigger the relevant bonus too, this game could make you feel as if you are in paradise. It is certainly colorful enough, with a 5 x 4 format sitting over the top of a beach-based location. Blue skies, warm seas, and a happy guy standing to the left in full beach dress. This is a game that packs in a lot, and we doubt you will be disappointed.

Endorphina introduces us to Ancient Troy

You know the story of Troy, right? It is told once again here in this new game from Endorphina. This software outfit can usually be relied upon to deliver some excellent games, so we are hoping they are following in those footsteps once again here.

Ancient Troy has been drawn as a cartoon-style game, with five large reels taking up the screen. The Trojan Horse appears as the wild, and Troy itself is shown as the scatter. Helen of Troy also appears in the game, along with some regular A, Q, and K symbols drawn in an angular style. Helen appears as a wild if you get through to the free games, appearing potentially as an expanded symbol too. Troy Jokers also appear in the freebies, giving you lots to look forward to if you intend to have some fun playing a few spins of this game.

Earn some Stellar Spins from Booming Games

If you like slots with gems, sevens, hearts, and other traditional symbols, Stellar Spins could be the one for you. Far from the most complex game release this week, it has proven popular already among those who prefer simpler games. A five-reel release, this game has a chance to offer some free spins with an expanding symbol chosen before they begin.

A second symbol showing two arrows pointing in opposite directions is a 2 Way Pay symbol, triggering just that feature if you find it. The wild also appears as that word, replacing all but the scatter and the 2 Way Pay symbol. If you like your game to be easy to understand with manageable paylines (10 of them), Stellar Spins is a stellar one to try.

Spinomenal releases Demi Gods II: Expanded Edition

What is an expanded edition, you might ask? You can find out if you check out this new game today. Spinomenal has a habit of releasing impressive titles, and the graphics on offer in the opening image alone are certainly impressive. There is a free spin feature here, and it comes with various locations that are set to be unlocked. With four modes available, you can unlock them all and then decide which one you like most when you unlock it again. This journey is shown on a map that fits in nicely with the theme. And since we are talking about Demi Gods here, we can expect to see a trip planned through Olympus itself.

Get ready for Moving Reels, a Moving Wild, an Expanding Wild, and Extra Wilds – all featuring inside their own free spin areas. There is a chance to see full-height symbols in action in this game too – something you have probably seen before, but that looks very impressive here given the detailed graphics. If you do try this game, we think you will love what you see. Will it become a firm favorite for you? Only you can decide…

Visit the Lucky Tropics with BF Games

We’ve been to paradise already this week… now it’s time to head for the tropics with BF Games. As you would guess, we have a tropical theme here and that is replicated in the beach-based image seen with the title over the top of it. All those palm trees look very appealing, wouldn’t you say?

The five reels of the game sit over the top of the beach, giving you a nice look at the backdrop with every spin. There is a lot of fruit involved here, all the kinds you might expect to see on a tropical vacation. Watch out for the toucan appearing as the wild icon, as this can come in useful for you. The game also includes a scatter shown as a tropical drink – find three of those and you get 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier involved. With just nine paylines in action here, Lucky Tropics is aimed at players who like smaller, simpler games that still pack in a lot of action.

Ainsworth introduces us to a Pussy Cat

Expect to spot a dark pussy cat in the opening imagery for this new Ainsworth slot. We’ve seen cats in games before, and this one doesn’t give us much we haven’t seen elsewhere. Expect a white wind-up mouse to appear, alongside a cat collar, a ball of wool, and a paw print.

There are four bonus amounts at the top of the screen, each pertaining to a different sum that could be won. The wild is shown inside a golden circle, depicting a fish and the wild word itself. This will only appear on the middle three reels, but it replaces everything apart from the scattered paw. There are free games to win and the chance for a Second Chance Respin too. As such, the game offers a little more than you might have supposed.

Booongo unlocks some Dragon Pearls: Hold and Win

The sparkling presentation of the title screen is well worth a closer look. The title suggests an Oriental slot and the imagery inside the game itself does not let us down. There are jackpots indicated above the five reels here, and you could get the chance to scoop one if you reach the bonus game. Collecting 15 pearls must be achieved in that round to scoop the biggest jackpot of all. A challenge, yes, but a good one, nonetheless.

If you reach the free spin feature, you will be playing with only the highest-valued symbols in the game. The yin-yang icon is the wild here, able to appear stacked if you are lucky. The wilds appear in that round too, thankfully.

There are some other nice touches here, such as lots of Chinese coins tumbling towards you if you manage to get a cool win. The scattered pot must be found three times to secure eight free games – eight being a lucky number in China. Will it prove to be such for you as well?

Pots of Luck might be involved in this new game from 1x2 Gaming

A green background, a golden shamrock, a rainbow, and a pot of gold… yes, everything you would expect to see alongside the Pots of Luck title is present and correct here. The scattered green hat is worth looking for as well. Find three, four, or five of those and you will secure 10, 14, or 18 free games. There is also a bonus pick game to try and get to, possible if you find three, four, or five bonus symbols in a spin.

Pots of Luck uses a green tone throughout and is another game released for St Patrick’s Day. This one is far more basic in appearance than some others released for this event, but it will appeal to those who like such games. Don’t expect a background as there isn’t one – the main attraction is the 5 x 3 format in use here. Choose a pot of gold if you reach the bonus pick round and see what happens next.

Spot the Fruit Monster in this new Spinmatic game

Did you check out the Fruit Monster Christmas game from Spinmatic? If so, we think you will want to check out this version of the game too. The normal 5 x 3 format gives us a look at 15 different symbols with each spin. There are various fruits on offer here, along with leaves. Everything has eyes too – something that can be odd to look at!

That leaf is a mystery scatter symbol. Three or more of these in a spin will unlock a feature game. The idea is that the leaf is hiding another symbol. If you get several leaves in a spin, they will all reveal the same symbol for a chance at some good prizes. The wild is the Fruit Monster itself, while there are just five lines in play. The monster will replace everything except for the scattered leaves, so that is useful to have around. Will you find out more about the Fruit Monster in this new slot release?

Which of this week’s releases looks the most exciting to you?

We cannot choose one this week – there are simply too many great ones to choose from! We think you might experience a similar issue, but what a great problem to have. If you are ready to check out some of these games, they are all available for playing now.
