May 2021 is a great month for new slot releases! ELK Studios and Quickspin will be releasing sequels to their smash hit slots with Dazzle Me getting a Megaways makeover. Want to know what else is in store? Read on!
Serengeti Gold - Microgaming
The first new release of this month comes to us from Microgaming, and it’s called Serengeti Gold, a good-looking video slot that takes us to the plains of Africa and surrounds us with beasts. Like the vast majority of Microgaming slots, the main appeal of Serengeti Gold is the free spins bonus round which is triggered by landing three, four, or five of the scatter symbols anywhere in view. Once triggered, you will be awarded up to 30 free spins, and there are a number of real modifiers and enhancements present during the bonus to help you form big wins.
Book of 99 - Relax
Relax Gaming has quickly risen to become one of the biggest game developers on the planet, and they have managed to become one of the leading figureheads in the online gambling industry thanks to their intuitive and creative games. Book of 99 is their latest release, and while some players may assume this is just yet another book of dead like game, a unique collection mechanic means that you’re guaranteed to be awarded the bonus upon collecting 99 of the scatter symbols. A conventional book of dead like bonus then plays out.
Nitropolis 2 - ELK
Elk Studios is a Swedish game developer that’s been responsible for some of the most successful slots in the last few years including the likes of Voodoo Gold, Chi and Nitropolis. In fact, Nitropolis proved to be such a success that the software provider has now released a sequel, fittingly called Nitropolis 2. Nitropolis 2 is a much more action packed and intense version of the original game – which already was pretty fast paced – and it offers heightened win potential allowing you the chance to score many thousands of times your bet every time you spin.
Bushido Ways xNudge - Nolimit City
NoLimit City have been taking the online gambling industry by storm in the last few years, and their commitment to developing video slots that are both creative, original and allow players the chance to win tens of thousands of times their bet has enabled them to become a player favourite in many countries around the world. Bushido Ways xNudge is their latest release, hitting online casinos on 4 May 2021, and like virtually all of their slots you will find yourself able to win well over 10,000 times your bet. Stunning graphics, exciting bonuses and features and a bonus by mechanic ensure the game is well suited to all different types of player.
Legends of Troy: The Siege - High 5
High Five Games may not be the biggest game developer in the planning, but they continually work hard to push out new games that give some of the big boys a run for their money. Legends of Troy: The Siege, is their latest release, and it hit online casinos on 5 May 2021.
This fast paced, action packed video slot offers an exciting free spins bonus alongside some big win potential within the base game, and while it’s not the most modern user interface we’ve ever seen, it’s a game that we feel will appeal to a wide variety of players thanks to its solid win potential.
Triple Gold - IGT
IGT appears to be going back to basics in their latest release, Triple Gold, which is set to be released on 6 May 2021. This rather retro-like video slot is built around a 3 x 3 format and there are just five pay lines in play. It’s reminiscent of the type of classic reel slot that you would find in many land-based casinos within the United States, and while it looks fairly decent, unfortunately, you will not find any free spins bonuses or pick me features within the game.
10,000 Wishes - Microgaming
Microgaming is back with yet another release, and this time it’s 10,000 Wishes, a game which takes on a genie -like theme and allows players the chance to win over two and a half thousand times their bet. Like the majority of Microgaming slots we see released today, 10,000 Wishes has been developed by one of Microgaming’s partner studios, and, unfortunately, it doesn’t quite have the same appeal as many of the older slots like immortal romance or thunderstruck to. Nevertheless, 10,000 Wishes does offer some semi-decent win potential, and it was made available across all Microgaming casinos on 6 May.
Legend of Athena - Red Tiger
Legends of Athena is the latest video slot from Red Tiger Gaming, and the first thing we noticed upon reviewing it was the phenomenal graphics. Red Tiger Gaming is no stranger to creating slots with impeccable visual creatives, and Legends of Athena is no exception to what we’ve come to expect from this well renowned software provider. Available on 6 May 2021, this exciting video slot offers a plethora of bonus features, many of which are randomly triggered from the base game – something we used to see in a number of the game developer’s slots, and something that players seem to really like.
The Amazing Money Machine - Pragmatic Play
Wild Streak Gaming is a small software provider, but their games are beginning to get more attention as they partnered up with Pragmatic Play, allowing their titles to hit more online casinos and subsequently, more players. The Amazing Money Machine is their latest release, and it takes you back around a hundred years, telling the tale of a crazy yet genius inventor as he attempts to build a machine that makes money.
The game is built around a 3 x 5 format, and there are 10 pay lines. One of the main attractions of the game, is the fact that the size of the reels can expand and there is also a free spins bonus round where the win potential increases significantly.
Hammerfall - Play’n GO
Play’n Go is well known for pushing out video slots faster than any other game developer, yet this month, they’ve been relatively quiet up until now. Hammerfall is their first release of the month, and while it’s unlikely to prove one of their most successful releases, it does show that they are continuing to use the grid -like format which we’ve seen in other games like wild frames.
The slot is built around a 7 x 7 format, and when five or more matching symbols form a cluster win is formed. In case you hadn’t gathered, the game is themed around the legendary Swedish rock band of the same name, and the gameplay and audio fits around the theme accordingly.
The Hot Offer - Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil announced that their first release of the month will be pushed out online casinos on 10 May, and it’s called The Hot Offer, a game that turns up the heat and allows players the chance of winning up to 5000 times their bet. What’s interesting about The Hot Offer, is that it has been developed by both Yggdrasil and Bang Bang Games, a small studio who work with Yggdrasil to create new games.
Scarab Gold - Inspired
Scarab Gold is a brand-new Egyptian themed video slot from Inspired Gaming, and it is built around a six-real, five-row format. During the base game, there is a mystery boost feature present, and this sees blank symbols on the reels – when combined with a scarab symbol – transforming into one instance of the symbol. Naturally, if you land quite a few of these mystery symbols they will all turn into the same one symbol, so there is some decent win potential in the base game alone. Scarab Gold is fully mobile optimised, and it’s now available to play at all online casinos that offer Inspired Gaming’s titles.
Astroboomers - Spearhead Studios
Astroboomers is the latest video slot from Spearhead Studios, and this real money multiplayer game is one of the few in the online gambling industry that allows you to play alongside other people. Another game developer called Funfair Games have also helped develop the title, and while it’s not immediately clear how it works in terms of regulation and licensing, it appears that there is already quite a lot of hype around the game, so once we know a little bit more about it we will put up a dedicated review page where you can learn all about it and try it out for free.
Atlantis Rising - Microgaming
Microgaming are prolific developers in the online gambling industry, and their next release of the month is called Atlantis Rising. Atlantis Rising is built around a 5 x 4 format and uses a total of 25 pay lines. Players can spin the reels from as little as 0.25 per spin, and the maximum bet is around €25 depending on the casino you’re playing at.
Sticky Bandits 3: Most Wanted - Quickspin
Quickspin is a major developer in the online gambling history, and they’ve produced a number of pretty successful titles in the past – Sticky Bandits 1 and Sticky Bandits 2 being a couple of good examples. Building on the success of these previous releases is the game developer’s next video slot, which is called Sticky Bandits 3: Most Wanted. This highly volatile slot allows you to win thousands of times your bet and is loaded with extra wild, sticky wilds and a Free spins feature. It’s a fast paced and action-packed game, and it’s now available to play at all online casinos that carry Quickspin’s games.
Book Of Inti - Microgaming
As many of you will know, Microgaming, today, choose to outsource the majority of their slot development to smaller game studios, and that’s the case with their latest release, Book of Inti. Book of Inti has been developed by a company called Golden Rock Studios, and it's themed around the Inca God of the Sun who married the moon – Inti. Unfortunately, as the name may have given away, Book of Inti is yet another Book of Dead inspired slot, so there’s just one free spins bonus on offer here during which one symbol will randomly become an expanding symbol.
Primate King - Red Tiger
Red Tiger Gaming are back with their latest release for the month, and this time it’s called Primate King. Primate King is packed with bonuses and features, and on your quest, you’ll be looking to uncover the reward by collecting gold coins. When these gold coins land on the reels, and when they land in view they trigger what is known as the primate wild progressive bar. Once this bar is full, you will enter a special bonus round where you can win up to 10,000 times your bet.
Phoenix Forge - Pragmatic Play
Phoenix Forge is the latest video slot from Pragmatic Play, and it is set to be released across all of the game developer’s casinos on 13 May 2021. Phoenix Forge allows you to win up to 5000 times your bet, and the game boasts a rather impressive RTP of 96.51%. However, as with any Pragmatic Play slot, online casinos do have the ability to request a lower RTP setting if they desire. Once Phoenix Forge has been released, we will put up a dedicated review where you can learn more about the game and play it for free.
Mega Moolah Goddess - Microgaming
Mega Moolah is the most successful progressive video slot in history, and Microgaming have produced a number of spin-offs that share the same pulled progressive, but feature somewhat different themes. Mega Moolah Goddess is their latest release, and while it does boast an impressive jackpot – one that can often be worth millions of dollars – we do feel that the game is let down by its very low RTP, coming in at just 93.3%.
Cauldron - Peter and Sons
Peter and Sons is one of the newest game developers entering the online gambling industry, and their first title to hit the market is called Cauldron. Cauldron will be pushed out on Yggdrasil’s gaming platform, and the game – magic themed, as you may expect – features an RTP of 96.04%. It’s a highly volatile game, and is built around a 5 x 3 format with 20 fixed paylines. There are two different free spins bonuses with multiplier symbols, and you can win just over 2000 times your bet.
Crypto Gold - PG Soft
PG Soft don’t release a huge number of new games, but when they do, they’re generally pretty good, and their latest release is called Crypto Gold, a video slot which will be released on 14 May. Crypto Gold is a six-real, six-row slot that offers expanding wilds, free spins, and an increasing multiplier, and it offers a surprisingly good amount of win potential, with players able to win thousands of times their stake on a single spin.
Word of Thoth - Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil, in conjunction with Jade Rabbit Studio, have chosen to build their latest slot release around an ancient Egyptian theme, relying on the image of Thoth, the God of the moon, wisdom, writing, and a number of other things. This highly volatile video slot allows players the chance to win up to 7348 times their total bet, and the game is built around a six-real, four-row format with a 4096-ways-to-win format in place.
Joyful Joker Megaways - Microgaming
Joyful Joker Megaways is a brand-new video slot from Microgaming that, of course, uses the famed Megaways mechanic that was first created and made famous by Australian game developer Big Time Gaming. Joyful Joker Megaways is a pretty retro-looking video slot with an RTP of 96%, and is actually been created by developer called All41 studios – one of the partner studios that Microgaming works with on a regular basis.
Cold Gold - Spearhead Studios
Spearhead Studios are back with another release this month, this time, called Cold Gold. Cold Gold is the 30th game from the small software provider, which is pretty impressive considering they’ve only been in operation since 2019. Unfortunately, when it comes to Cold Gold, Spearhead Studios appear to be keeping their cards relatively close to their chest.
What The Fox Megaways - Red Tiger Gaming
Another Megaways slot is being released today, and this one is called What the Fox Megaways, video slot from Red Tiger Gaming. What the Fox Megaways has an RTP of 95.71%, which does come in a little lower than we typically like to see today, but this is not unusual for a Megaways game. Furthermore, What the Fox Megaways allows you to win just over 10,000 times your total stake on every spin, so, like with most Megaways slots, there is some very clear win potential to be found within the game. Like most Red Tiger Gaming slots, What the Fox Megaways is impeccably designed, and the gameplay is smooth, graphics crisp, and the audio soundtrack is very fitting for the theme.
Sails Of Fortune - Relax
Relax Gaming’s latest release is called Sails of Fortune, and from the moment you open up the game you will be taking to the high seas for some rough adventure, as you join a group of pirates as they go in search of vast treasures. Sails of Fortune is built around a five-real format, and there are 243-ways-to-win in play, so you do not need to worry about paylines. The game offers quite a few bonuses and features, most notably the re-spin feature, which can award wins worth well above 2000 times your bet. Mystery treasure map symbols can also land on the reels, and all of these symbols then transform into identical symbols making it easier for you to land wins.
Asgard Warriors - 1x2 Gaming
Asgard Warriors is the first release from 1X2 Gaming this month, and it’s due to hit online casinos on 19 May. This Viking inspired video slot is fully mobile optimised, so you’ll find yourself able to play it from both your desktop and mobile devices. The developer has spared no expense in terms of development, and there are some pretty exciting bonuses and features to be found, including a warrior spin feature and a free spins bonus, both of which are capable of producing wins worth many thousands of times your bet.
Super Wolf - Skywind
Super Wolf is a brand-new video slot from a company called Skywind, and, in the game developer’s own words… There doesn't have to be a full moon in the sky for you to be howling like crazy with Super Wolf. Stacked Special Wolf Wilds trigger the respins feature, and there’s also a conventional free spins bonus round, where players can win up to 5,000 times their total bet.
Silver Seas - Microgaming
Gold Coin Studios – one of the many game studios that works with Microgaming – has announced their latest release which will be pushed out to online casinos on the 20th May, 2021. It’s themed around pirates – as the name suggests – and it’s built around a 5-reel, 3-row format, with 20 fixed paylines in play. There’s also a free spins feature which is triggered by landing three, four or five of the scatter symbols anywhere in view. The game will be available to play at all Microgaming casinos.
Cash Elevator - Pragmatic Play
Cash Elevator is a highly-unique slot from Pragmatic Play - their latest release - and the video slot is set to be released on the 20th May, 2021. The video slot takes place within an elevator - a pretty unique design that we haven’t really seen before.
The elevator is placed within a building that has 13 floors; as you begin playing, you start on level one of the building, and the more you play, the higher up the building the elevator rises - and once you reach the top, and the game’s maximum win-potential is unlocked, you’ll find yourself able to win up to 5,100X your total bet!
Dazzle Me Megaways - NetEnt
Dazzle Me Megaways is the latest video slot from NetEnt, and, as the name suggests, it’s a Megaways remake of one of the most successful video slots in online gambling history; Dazzle Me. Dazzle Me Megaways utilises the same iconic “joining reels” mechanic we saw in the original, but there is now a significant increase in the game’s win-potential, with players able to (potentially) win as much as 50,000X their stake!
Lava Gold - Betsoft
Lava Gold is a brand-new video slot from Betsoft that’s built around a 5X5 grid format. It’s a cluster-pays game, so there aren’t any paylines; wins are formed by matching five or more symbols in a ‘cluster’ together. Graphically, we feel that Lava Gold is one of the game developer’s better efforts in recent years, and the HD graphics and audio soundtrack accompany the game really well; it’s also fully mobile-optimized, so you’ll be able to enjoy the video slot from all of your mobile devices.
Poseidon Ancient Fortunes Megaways - Microgaming
Poseidon Ancient Fortunes Megaways, the next release from Microgaming for this month, is a slot developed in partnership with Triple Edge Studios, and, as the name suggests, it utilises Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanic. This means there’s up to 117,649-ways-to-win active on each spin in Poseidon Ancient Fortunes Megaways, and it also means the win-potential of the slot is a staggering 10,000 times your bet on each spin!
Maradona Hyperways - GameArt
Maradona Hyperways is a new video slot from GameArt - a software provider who are no strangers to controversy… and their latest release looks to prove as controversial as some of their previous titles. In a clear rip-off of BTG’s Megaways mechanic, Maradona Hyperways uses an almost identical format - and it doesn’t offer anything overly new, unique or intuitive.
Gator Gold - Yggdrasil
Gator Gold is the penultimate release form Yggdrasil this month, and it’s yet another of their Gigablox games - a unique mechanic that was first developed in an attempt to create something new - an alternative to Big Time Gaming’s Megaways mechanic, most likely. Gator Gold offers a staggering maximum win of 1,200,000EUR, and it’s a highly volatile video slot, with a return to player of 96%. There isn’t a huge amount of information available about Gator Gold as of now, although we have been able to have a sneak-peek at the graphics - and we think it looks pretty good!
HippoPop - Yggdrasil
HippoPop is the last release for this month, and it’s a game built by AvartarUX in conjunction with Yggdrasil. It’s yet another installment in the highly-popular “PopWins'' series of games, and the slot - in the game developer’s own words - is influenced by the psychedelic vibe of Oaxacan arts and Alebrijes visions. Visually, it looks great, and the 6th slot in the series offers just as much action and win-potential as the previous titles.
The game takes place on a 5-reel, 3-row format and there’s 243-ways-to-win active on each spin during the base-game. The main win-potential is found during the special free spins feature, and here, the number of rows can increase up to 8!
