New Slots Announced 2021
Is it really 2021? Sounds like something out of a Sci-Fi novel, right?
I like to keep an eye on the new games’ launches coming up, as hopefully it won´t be long until they hit Wombat Casino. There are a few announcements that had my ears pricked up recently.
These Guys and Gals are Inspired
Inspired Gaming is following it’s popular Reel King Megaways and Santa King Megaways titles with Reel Lucky King Megaways. I bet they were brainstorming the name for that one all night long . This latest game is a Irish jig that follows the familiar mechanic. It’s a six-reel slot game, available online and on mobile.
So if you like these Megaways titles, and want to combine it with a touch of the luck of the Irish, this slot has cascading wins, the famous Reel King Dings, the Free Spins trail and bonus features throughout. Why mess with a winning formula?
Thanks to the the Megaways™ mechanic, Reel Lucky King Megaways boasts 117,649 Ways to Win.
Watch out for the traditional Celtic symbols, and plenty of splashes from the Emerald Isle with a traditional Irish acoustic ditty in the background of course. Good craic!
And Microgaming have been busy with wee leprechaun detectives, huge gorillas, and bounty hunters, or at least their partner design studios have. Feast your eyes on this lot!
That’ll be the Favourite
First up is Shamrock Holmes Megaways™ from All41 Studios (the team behind Electric Avenue) on January 5, a volatile 6-reeler slot with a big top win, featuring a leprechaun detective. They have employed the Megaways™ mechanic on this one, licensed from Big Time Gaming.
Dust and Wind, Dude.
Then it’s time to head for the Wild West (or Almeria in Spain where they shot the Spaghetti Westerns) for The Bounty slot developed by Snowborn Games.
A bunch of dusty ne’er-do-wells take up station across the reels. You are the bounty hunter, and your aim to to cut back on the cheroots and find the the bad guys Dead or Alive. You will need to pull together 6 matching Wanted posters to scoop the jackpot. 3 Ambush Bonus symbols sets off the free-spins, where there are (in theory t least) unlimited free spins with win multipliers. The Ambush feature kicks off with free spins and a double-your-win multiplier (x2). Bullets get you more free spins and dynamite sticks get you extra multipliers. Get on yer horses.
Another design partner, Foxium, has come up with a 3 reel game and one pay-line game called Foxpot. These traditional fruities are all the rage, but wait until you see the features on this one.
A Fox Wheel takes up the centre of the screen and spins as three bonus wheels in one with a Money Award, a Multiplier Mode and a Respin Mode. Pretty innovative, eh?
The Money Award Wheel has 3 jackpots: the Mini, Midi and the FoxPot, which grants wins all the way to 10,000x.
Golden Stallion™ Ultraways™ is the first Microgaming slot game developed by partners Northern Lights Gaming. With wild horses galloping through a canyon in the Old West, this is a high-variance slot that’s loaded up with free spins. 3 scatters in the free spins feature will set off the Ultraways™ mechanic. In this, double and quad symbols make an appearance, and the Ways to Win can shoot up to a mind boggling 196,608 Ultraways™.
Gqmeburger have developed some of our favourite games, so I’m waiting with baited breath for Hyper Strike™ from these developers, which is a fast paced 5×3 reel, 20 pay-line game with a disco-funk backtrack. Fun….Kay…
Try and land the scatters for a prize topping out at 2,000x your stake.
Land of the Rising Slot
Then it’s time to head east for a spot of Pachinko from Neko Games. This is a video bingo game basically, based on Japanese pachinko
Following that one, there are more Megaways™ to be had in the Forgotten Island Megaways™ slot from All41 Studios which is all about a huge prehistoric gorilla. Watch out for the extra reels, Rolling Reels™ and the ‘Kong Spin’.
All in all, it´s going to be a packed start to the year!
