New Slots Round-Up | 9 August 2018

Happy woman playing slots

Prepare for a special week as we zoom in on new slots with huge win potential, wicked reel layouts, or awesome bonus features. First in line is the latest game from Pragmatic Play, which offers a mind-blowing maximum win in a single spin of 48,000x your stake. And no, we are not kidding.

Next, we experience fire-breathing dragons in a marvel of slot design from Red Tiger Gaming with super-sharp graphics and breathtaking animations. Blueprint Gaming is adding yet another Megaways slot to its portfolio where a genie in the bottle will be spreading the good luck and mega-wins. Last but not least, we have rising star Yggdrasil with a novel reel layout and an in-game mini slot on top of the reels.

Da Vinci’s Treasure | Pragmatic Play

Fed up with big-win animations for pays merely over 10x your stake? Well, here is a slot where those animations are absolutely justified. Pragmatic Play decided to push the boat out with their latest slot creation, offering a maximum win on a single spin peaking at a more than staggering 48,000x your bet. That is the highest non-progressive potential win for an online slot so far. A mere minimum bet of 0.25 coins would award a massive payout of 12,000 coins.

Certainly, that’s reason enough to take a closer look at this high-volatility monster. It appears as your usual everyday slot, with five reels, three rows, and 25 fixed paylines. Visually pleasant reel symbols and colors are accompanied by an old map of the Mediterranean region in the background. John Hunter is the explorer searching for Da Vinci’s treasures and at the same time the top paying symbol on the slot, appearing stacked at all times.

The big treasures are hidden on a bonus wheel, which is triggered with three scrolls on the middle reels. The wheel contains a pick-and-click game with coins wins up to 50x your bet, a field track with 23 steps, each awarding a coin win of 5x your stake and a special reward for those reaching the finish line and the much desired Progressive Multiplier Free Spins, which are the key to hitting that maximum monster win.

Initially, 12 free spins are awarded, which can be re-triggered up to four more times for a maximum of 60 free spins. An x1 multiplier is added on every spin during the round, peaking at x12 for a standard round and at x60 with maximum retriggers.

Dragon’s Fire | Red Tiger Gaming

Beware, fire-breathing dragons will scorch your reels with progressive win multipliers of up to x50, random wild reels, random Dragon’s Eye multiplier boosts, and a massive random Fire Blast that will turn reels wild or add scatters. All action can lead to super mega-wins of up to 10,000x your stake.

Two of the reasons that we singled out this slot are the incredibly sharp graphics and jaw-dropping animations. Not only is the entire screen shaking violently when the dragon awakes but it also seems that he will jump at you at any moment during the following animation. A superb creation by the design team at Red Tiger Gaming.

The five reels and four rows are filled with 40 paylines, showing various dragon eggs and newly-hatched baby dragons, plus a watchful dragon’s eye is towering above all as the top-paying symbol. Wilds are engulfed in flames as they substitute for all symbols except scatters.

Winning spins will set off the progressive multiplier, which will be increased by x1 for each consecutive winning combo, up to x50. The multiplier is reset after a losing spin. Hit three scatters in one spin to trigger the free spins feature and choose from three dragons to reveal the amount of free spins. The kicker in the bonus round is the feat that the multiplier is not resetting after a non-winning spin.

Scoring a full screen of the Dragon’s Eye symbols at an x50 multiplier will pay the maximum for this slot at 10,000x your stake. The good thing is that it can be hit in the base game as well as in the free spins. More chances to hit that monster win.

Genie Jackpots MEGAWAYS™ | Blueprint Gaming

Make sure to rub the lamp right, as the genie on the latest slot creation by Blueprint could reward you handsomely when it is released onto the reels. Plus, fans of their famous TED slot will now have an exciting alternative with a whole range of bonus features.

After signing the license agreement with Big Time Gaming to use their patented MEGAWAYS™ game engine, Blueprint stormed the online gaming stage earlier this year with Diamond Mine and Irish Riches. The games became instant hits with slot players, although they were rather exact copies of BTG’s original Bonanza. However, with Genie Jackpots MEGAWAYS™, they have gone much further and designed a slot with their own twists and special features. A remake of their original Genie Jackpots slot, the new game has now six reels and up to 15,625 ways-to-win.

A random feature in the base game will help shorten the periods between bonus rounds. Activating a Genie Power Spin will see the genie escaping from the lamp and granting players one wish. They can choose one lamp to reveal Bonus MEGAWAYS™ with more Bonus Symbols added to the reels; Genie MEGAWAYS™, where the game expands to the maximum size and the genie might add extra wild symbols; Genie Wilds, which add full reels of wild symbols to the reels; or Genie WINSPIN, with mystery symbols being added to the reels that will reveal a common symbol.

The fun does not stop there, as minimum three scatters will award 10 free spins with yet another four options such as multiplier wild, Genie streak spins, locking wilds, and unlimited multiplier spins. The feature can even be retriggered.

Hanzo’s Dojo | Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil has spoiled us with some ingenious slots such as Jungle Books, Tut’s Twister, and Beauty and the Beast. Reason enough to always look forward to their next release. In Hanzo’s Dojo, players travel to Japan to meet the mighty Dojo warriors and find their slotting mojo with a maximum win in a single spin of up to 3,000x your stake. A tranquil mountain scene with bonsais and blossoming cherry trees accompanied by a typical serene soundtrack smooths the journey even more.

An unusual reel set in the form of a traditional house has a standard 5×3 game window with 25 paylines plus an added mini rooftop slot above the reels. The game plays just like any other slot but with an added twist when the right sight symbols appear on the rooftop. Options are wild symbols, which will expand to cover the corresponding reel, Hanzo Spins with a 3×3 mega symbol locked on the middle reels for three spins, and extra scatters to increase the chance for the bonus round.

Triggering the Free Spins will award a minimum of nine spins with extra boosters, such as win-both-ways, 3×3 symbol nudge, x2 multiplier, or wild 5th reel. More re-triggers and boosters can be added during the round, providing the best moment to hit the maximum win.
