6 Slot Games You Need To Play In May 2017April 29th, 2017
It’s that time again! We look at all the new casino slot games that have come out recently, and let you know which are worth playing on your mobile phone and tablet.
With more games being released on mobile and online casinos than ever before, we’ve changed our format a little.
Back by popular demand, we are now going to be doing two, instead of one, best slot games to play a month.
Because, apparently, you are all too impatient to wait a whole month to let us compile our list.
Best slot games you should play in May 2017
How do we pick these casinos games? Simple, we play them, we review them, and then, once the buzz and marketing around them has died down…
We played them again to see if they really are worthwhile.
Not everyone will agree with our number one choice. In fact, it might be a little controversial and a little early to call it, but we are going to do it anyway.
Get in the ring with Luchadora by Thunderkick
Thunderkick have, in the past, created some amazing phone games for casino we’ve loved. But, in the last 6 months, nothing that really stood out.
And whilst this Luchadora game doesn’t quite manage to get to the highs of the likes of Esqueleto Explosivo, it’s fun enough to make it on our list.
With 5×4 reels, it almost looks like it’s a grid slot, but in fact, it’s just your standard 30 payline game.
However, it comes with many un-standard features, including ring corners, where if you get one of the wrestlers to land on the square, it will turn all similar wrestlers into wilds.
Add stacked symbols and this Thunderkick casino slot is one fun way to pass the time.
NextGen’s Theatre of Night slot
We have to admit, we weren’t that keen on the theme of this Theatre of Night slot.
It’s not like it’s not pretty enough, but we’ve seen NextGen game studios do so much better with themes like these, like in Xing Guardian or The Great Wild Elk, that it feels like they’ve barely put any effort in.
However, that’s because they put all their efforts onto the game mechanics.
It’s not a complicated game; with pays both ways and 10 payline, you could even call it simple.
But, get 3 wilds on screen and you’ll get 6 free re-spins that will bring real drama to your casino wallet: day or night.
There’s kicking wins in Panda Pow
Lightning Box games aren’t usually on our list, but this ass kicking panda hit all the right buttons thanks to the stacked wilds that also act like scatter.
Get enough of those on screen and you could get up to 20 free spins, with even more stacked wilds all over the screen.
It’s not unlike Dolphin Gold, the other Lightning Box slot that equally impressed us.
Again, not complicated, but sometimes you don’t need complicated.
Sometimes, you just want a 25 payline slot with a huge betting range of 0.25 up to 875 per spin that will fit all kind of different slot strategies on mobile.
Yggdrasil does it again with Chibeasties 2
Technically, there was two releases by the software casino provider Yggdrasil Gaming.
But, as a general rule (unless the games are particularly amazing) we only like to put one game from each studio on the list.
It means you get more variety, and even the small guys get a chance at making it to the list.
Chibeasties 2 wins over Power Plant simply because it has a traditional look and feel, and yet you get to choose between 4 different realms, or ways to play.
It gives you full control and with 4 different wilds, which can ‘mutate and merge’ to become super wilds, this fantasy slot is fantastic.
Hansel & Gretel slot has all the fairytale magic
There’s few months when NetEntertainment studios doesn’t make it in our best casino games slots lists, and that’s because, even on a bad day, their mediocre slots tend to be better than the rest.
And this Hansel and Gretel slot game is no mediocre anything. In fact, it’s the second in their Fairytale Legend slot games series (Red Riding Hood was the first, and a third is due later on this year).
With a huge amount of bonus features, and non-stop action, it’s almost impossible to tell you in just a few words why you should play this slot on mobile or online.
It’s the kind of game that’s got to be tried.
The controversial Viking Runecraft slot by Play’n GO
Not everyone will agree with our number one choice; which we understand.
Sitting on a 7×7 grid, with collapsing wins and over 4,000 levels to conquer, this casino slot by Play’n GO feels like more of a social game than fruit machine.
But don’t be fooled, there’s big wins to be had, thanks to the help of these Norse Gods as they guide to from plain journey-man, to Viking Hero.
You’ve got 4 different wild features in the base game, a mini-jackpot instant cash game every time you level up, and then a further 4 special features when you get a chain reaction of wins.
Add a free spin Ragnarok feature that has all the drama of the actual end of the world, and we couldn’t put down this latest gem.
Trust us, you’ll be playing Viking Runecraft way into May, June, and even July of 2017 and beyond.
