There are so many new titles being released by so many different developers at the moment that it’s becoming almost impossible to keep up.
For that reason, I’m going to give you a rundown here of a few that I have tried this month, highlighting only the main selling points and things I think you should know. I’m going to tear through these quicker than Immortal Romance tears through a £50 bankroll.
Are you ready?
The Games In Brief
Le Kaffee Bar
This 5 reel, 243 Ways to Win offering from Microgaming is set in a coffee shop – not tremendously exciting but original at least. Collect 10, 20, or 30 coffee cup symbols from reels 1 or 5 to enter freespins with a 3x, 4x or 5x multiplier. You can win up to 2833x your stake but I didn’t get much of a caffeine hit from this one.
Remember Ecuador Gold by Elk Studios? This is the follow-up, and it’s even better. Amazing graphics and sound? Check. Avalanche feature? Check. Giant symbols? Check. 5,000x stake in the base game? Check. The grid expands from 4 rows to a potential 8 with every win during the bonus round too, creating up to 262, 144 ways to win.
Fans of the King of rock’n’roll have to try this one (for the money…). Enjoy his greatest hits as you play and cross your fingers for one of 4 different bonus features. Reels 2, 3 and 4 can merge to create a giant Elvis reel bearing 4×3 symbols, and stakes range from 50p to £100. This WMS release is sure to leave you all shook up – uh-huh-huh.
Quickspin’s first ever jackpot game. But there’s more to it than that, with a randomly triggered Wildfire feature, freespins that re-trigger, 20 paylines, and an RTP of 96.39%. The Dragon Pearl Respins is where you win the big money though, from one of 4 different sized jackpots.
5 Lions Gold
High variance, a respectable RTP of 96.52% (for a jackpot slot), an overdone theme and 243 ways to win make this effective re-release from Pragmatic Play a bit of a mismatch – it’s not that much fun but it can be rewarding. The freespins round is interesting though, and there are 2 ways to access the jackpot.
One Hundred to One
A bit of an oddball. Only 3 paying symbols and dated graphics, but freespins that can be re-triggered up to 600 spins with multipliers from 1x to 10x. These come fairly frequently too in this medium variance offering from Novomatic.
