Which Of The New Playtech Mobile Slots Should You Be Playing?November 1st, 2015
In the last month Playtech have released not one, not five, but 12 new mobile slots. So which are worth playing? And which should you avoid?
It feels like over the last few weeks all we’ve played is Playtech slot games.
Whereas Microgaming like to release two or three new games a month, and NetEnt stick with one great game a month, we hadn’t heard from Playtech in a while.
It seems that they’ve decided to give us a years worth of games at once. Hurray! (They said sarcastically, having to suddenly add 12 new games to their reviews schedule).
Hence why it’s taken us so long to get this new slots list out to you; we’ve had to play them all for a while in order to give you an accurate view of which are the new Playtech mobile slots to play, and which to avoid.
First things first: The full list
We wouldn’t be doing out jobs if we didn’t give you a full list of the casino games, in order of least to most favourite.
However, we figure that you are probably busy people, so below this list, we’ve written why the top 5 were the best of the lot.
- Funky Fruits: An all ways pay 5×5 slot that is incredibly boring.
- Silver Bullet: A classic 9 payline 5 reel game that’s pretty below average.
- Cat Queen: A simple 5×4, 40 payline, egyptian slot.
- Bonus Bear: Not keen on the graphics of this 25 payline game.
- Ice Run: 25 paylines and some fun easy features.
- Arctic Treasure: Middle of the road Playtech slot, simple but effective.
- Esmeralda: A little latin passion made us return to this cheesy 25 paylines.
- Sinbad Golden Voyage: With leviathan free spins and 164 paylines, this is beautifully different.
- Nian Nian You Yu: This video slot will bring you abundance in life and in wallet.
- The Riches of Don Quixote: Sticky wilds and increasing multipliers is what it’s all about.
- Cherry Love: She might not be classy, but with those walking stacked wilds, you won’t care.
- Fortunate Five: A jackpot slot we feel head overboard for.
It’s a big list; so lets look at those top five and why they made the cut. Or don’t, and check out Betfred casino which has them all, where you get 100% bonus up to £€$200 to try them all.
5. The Singular Sinbad Golden Voyage
We start with a fairly controversial choice. Reason being, this doesn’t feel like Playtech, so much as a WMS casino game.
Between the old-timey graphics, the 164 paylines, the 5×6 reels, and stacked symbols, this is straight out of the Las Vegas floor. And it plays a little like it too. Online casino players will probably find this a little slow.
Not because you don’t get lots of wins, but because it’s hard to capture the really big wins. That is, until the elusive leviathan free spins show up, and then things get really interesting.
It becomes easier to get wins with the stacked wilds, and you have to watch out for the Leviathan wild, which almost covers 3 whole reels.
This voyage isn’t easy, but then Sinbad didn’t get rich by doing things the easy way, but rather, the clever way. And this is a clever slot.
4. Nian Nian You Yu is wishing you abundance
At first we weren’t massively impressed by this 9 payline slot. Sure it looks pretty, with dim sum, lucky fish and firecrackers on the reels. But It was just another Asian slot right?
Play Everything at Betfred:
- IGT and Playtech games
- Bingo, Lotto & poker
- Bet on every sport
- Play on live casino & live matches
- Multiple currencies available
Then, once we started playing, we fell into an easy flow as we realised that the simplicity of this pays both way game is what made us love it in the first place.
It’s basically the opposite of the Sinbad slot.
All you have is those paylines, a wild with a 2x multiplier, and scatter pays. Oh and did we forget to mention the jackpot that could trigger randomly on any spin?
May you have abundance in your life; “Nian Nian You Yu”. An apt name for a pretty, well balanced game.
3. Can you catch The Riches of Don Quixote?
With a pretty guitar melody in the background, and spinning windmills on a field of golden wheat, The Riches of Don Quixote mobile slot is a far more traditional Playtech game in look and game play.
The base game, with 25 paylines, is fun enough, especially as all but the top three highest paying symbols are stacked in 2s on the reels, meaning you get enough action to keep you spinning.
But this mobile casino slot lives or dies by how quickly you get the free spin rounds. Because here’s where Don Quixote hides all his riches, as the 3rd reel goes completely wild and every 2 spins, the multiplier increases by +1, starting at 2x. So by the last two spins, you’ve got a chance to get play for wins with a 5x multiplier.
This is more of a easy playing mobile casino game, rather than particularly hard hitting, but sometimes it nice to get a slot that keeps you playing for longer.
2. Get some sexy dirty Cherry Love
Some of you will look at the theme and wonder if we haven’t gone mad putting this game at number 2. The other half (the male half?) will say that it’s only right that this game, with the dirty buxom blonde, tattoos and cigarette lighters should be at the top.
Top reasons to play at Betfred:
- Cashout in under 24 hours
- 11 currencies; including AUD, CAD, GBP, EU, ZAR
- 24/7 customer support
- Huge variety of betting options
- Different welcome bonuses for different games
And you’d both be wrong as we didn’t pick it because of the theme.
We picked it because of the winning potential, the lively action, and game play.
For one, during the base game, the wild always expands to cover the whole reel.
That means at any point you can get some beautiful wins. Then you have the free spins, with a 2x multiplier, and an expanded wild at all time.
She moves from reel 2 to reel 4 and back again, but it certainly brings the heat in a Playtech slot for mobile that deserve your attention, whether you like the theme or not.
1. The Jackpot heavy Fortunate 5
You might be surprised to find a jackpot slot at the top of our list. Usually, if a progressive jackpot casino game has a big top draw, the game play tends to be… you know… easy playing.
The 2 Mega Fortune millionaires who won big within a week of each other did so because of the jackpot; you don’t often hear of big winner stories from base game wins.
The Fortunate 5 game could be the exception. Sure it has 5 jackpots, which all you need is a 5 of a kind win on order to trigger.
And when you have a 4 of a kind, you get a free re-spin of that last reel, every time, to try and catch a 5 of a kind. Which is awesome.
But what really drew us in was the free spins. These go on for an unlimited amount of time, or as long as it takes you to collect 5 wild symbols. We’ve played as little as 8 spins, and as many as 48 spins, and anything in between.
Not only were the treasures in these high seas worth it, but we had a rollicking adventure that even gave us a couple of the smaller jackpot wins.
