There is what we call a blockbuster week ahead of us as we are looking forward to some major slot releases from industry heavyweights. They all have the potential to instantly storm to the top of the playing charts. In addition to seeing the launch of Big Time Gaming’s next creation, there will be two new names who are preparing the release of their first Megaways games. Plus, there is one developer who figured out the math formula without a licence from BTG. Not to forget, we will have some mainstream providers showcasing their latest creations.
Newly welcomed partner studio All41 is joining the increasingly long list of developers that create games exclusively for Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. Their first slot is taking us on a mystical journey through sandy dunes with five reels and nine pay lines.
Discover the arcane secrets and treasures hidden under the vast sands with stacked wilds, magic free spin tokens and a bonus round that can lead to wins of up to 2,222 times your stake.
Anticipation is always at its highest when the release of a slot from Big Time Gaming is imminent. Their Megaways engine as changed slot playing forever. Instead of simple spinning reels, we now have dynamic reels, cascading symbols, reactive wins and other mechanics that make a slotting session much more entertaining. With Kingmaker Megaways, BTG has kept the medieval route that started with Holy Diver, giving the game five reels and up to 16,807 ways to win.
The ingenious Megaways game engine is the backbone of a fast-paced slot with progressive win multipliers in the base game and a free spins round with accumulative multipliers that can lead to wins of up to a reported 40,000 times your stake.
The little known developer from the UK signed in late 2018 a licence agreement with Big Time Gaming and is now preparing the first of three Megaways slots for its global release. It has been available exclusively at Ladbrokes for about two weeks and will go networkwide on the Relax Gaming platform, which will ensure that it can be played at a large range of online casinos.
The mighty wizard is featuring yet on another slot, this time with six reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. Cascading symbols, reactive wins, mystery symbols and a free spins round with unlimited retriggers and progressive multipliers will deliver solid Megaways action with a win potential of up to 10,000 times your bet.
The classic Rainbow Riches slot and its endless list of sequels have been a neverending success story for Barcrest and its parent company, Scientific Games. It came as no surprise to see it receiving the Megaways makeover with the standard six reels and up to 117,649 ways to win.
Rainbow Riches Megaways comes with a mystery feature, a free spins round, an array of Bonus Buy options and most importantly a win potential that can reach 50,000 times your bet or 250,000 credits, whichever is hit first. At maximum bet that correlates to 12,500 times the stake, still plenty to play for.
Not only is NetEnt taking us back to the Art Deco era on Grand Spinn but also to the time when slots featured only a single pay line. A modern touch and a few surprising twists are though witness to the advance in slot technology, bringing the game firmly into the 21st century.
Grand Spinn will surprise you with Multiplier Wilds, a Nudge feature, and 3 fixed jackpots. Each and every spin can potentially trigger a jackpot win, and Multiplier Wilds combined with nudging reels may, with luck, bring the rain of golden coins down worth up to 7,040 times your bet.
The Swedish powerhouse is bringing their second July release that will take us on a journey through an enchanted forest with mysterious flowers and gleaming fireflies. A 5×4 reel set with 30 fixed paylines is the backbone of a highly volatile game.
Firefly Frenzy comes with multiplier wilds of up to x27 and a free spins round that sends them into a multiplier frenzy and can lead to wins of up to 10,000 times your bet.
This slot creation took us all by surprise as we knew that Pragmatic Play has not signed a licence agreement with BTG for the Megaways engine, yet they figured out the complex math that is needed for dynamic reels with variable amounts of positions per reel on every spin. Apparently, that part is not included in the Megaways patent, still quite an achievement to figure it out. It will give players who reside in regions where BTG and Blueprint Gaming are restricted a viable alternative to play similar games.
The game is a fusion between a Megaways slot and all-time classic Montezuma from WMS. A game window withh five reels and up to 7,776 ways to win features a free spins round with win multipliers of up to x10. Any retriggers will be played at the current multiplier.
There are about two dozen more releases hitting the casino lobbies in the next 10 days but we thought these would be the highlights which have the potential to become player favourites. Check back next week as we will have more exciting upcoming games to announce.
