The Best Under-The-Radar New Slots Games of July 2018July 23rd, 2018
We know July isn’t over just yet, but there have been so many great slot releases we thought we’d line up the new slot games you should be playing over the next couple of weeks.
What do we mean by under-rated? We mean games that don’t get released in the peak time of the last week or first week of the month when they get the most attention.
These are the slot machines that pop out during the month, maybe from big providers, usually from smaller ones, who deserve your attention before they get lost after the big NetEnt casino game release.
But instead of jumping straight to the blockbusters, check out these indy hits that may have slip under your radar, and the fantastic casinos online that host them.
What are the most under-rated casino games for July?
In the next week we are going to be having big releases from NetEnt, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, WMS and even Play’n GO gaming.
Because the last and first week of the month is when everyone likes to dump their best games, hoping to capture your imagination around payday.
Ok, fine, no one has said that officially, and that might be a little cynical of us but… you know… these guys don’t create slot games just for the joy of it; they create them so we play them.
And we play them when we have real money to spend.
But how about giving these your time of day for just a few spins this next week? You might be pleasantly surprised and go home with more than just a happy smile.
6. Rock out! with Turn it Up by Push Gaming
Push Gaming rarely makes it on our list of great slots to play each month because, honestly, they never particularly stand out.
Well, they made it on our best slots list today, namely because their Turn it Up slot has some very unusual mechanics that will have you spinning for far longer than you’d have thought.
Turn it up is a 10 payline slot machine with wilds, scatters, free spins and reel enhancers, giving you a concert rock theme that works well at mobile casinos.
Played in Portrait mode, this certainly is easier to handle on Android phone and iPhone rather than tablets but is just as much fun to play on desktop if you prefer the online casino game experience.
What are reel enhancers?
These are the ace up this Push Gaming slot sleeve.
If you lose, one of the enhancers above the reels will fill up. When full, you’ll get:
- One of the symbols turn wild
- One of the symbols is removed from the reels
- A multiplier of 2x to 10x your win
You can get more than one enhancer at a time, and they reset after a win but makes it more likely you’ll hit something good after a bad streak of losses.
5. The exclusive Lucky Mr Green slot by Red Tiger Gaming
Red Tiger Gaming studios have only been around for a couple of years, but boy are they making some noise.
With a beautiful 1920s glamour feel, this Lucky Mr Green slot machine has 20 paylines with 6 bonus game features, including free spins, wilds, and multipliers aplenty.
What we love about this provider is that they are always crystal clear about what you can expect from their games.
So you know that you can win up to 800x your bet in this low to mid variance game thanks to the opening screen, all for a low starting bet of 0.20 a spin.
This is an exclusive Mr Green casino slot:
If you love exclusive games that can be found in no other casino, the Mr Green gambling site is for you.
They have at least count, about 4 exclusive NetEnt games, one exclusive Play’n GO slot, and now this Red Tiger game. There might be more, it’s hard to keep up.
Best of all, being as they’ve been around for 10 years (and are giving bonuses all this year because of it), there’s really no better time to try the gentleman’s casino.
4. The Generic but good Asgard game by Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play creates really fun slot games. What they are not so good at is themes.
Not to say their themes are badly done, but they generally lack imagination; if there’s a generic slot theme out there to be made, from Irish to Fruit machines, to Gold Digging, they’ve got it.
This Asgard slot is their foray into the world of Vikings and the city of gold where these Norse Deity rest their weary heads.
What makes this 20 payline slot game so much fun is the fact that on any spin you can hit one of four divine features, giving you extra wilds, wild reels, mystery symbols, and richer reels.
You don’t need the free spins to enjoy this game
But it has them, giving you 5 free games with any of the features we’ve mentioned above.
The good news is that this Asgard mobile slot is the best kind of game: a big win can happen on any spin seeing as the features occur in the base game just as in the bonus games.
It’s not a particularly volatile slot machine, but it keeps things fun and light, and you’ll be on the lookout for your next Pragmatic game soon after.
3. The beautiful Si Xiang mobile slot by Iron Dog
And they have the opposite problem from Pragmatic Play; the Iron Dog slots tend to have vastly imaginative themes and beautiful designs but the mechanics are not usually very interesting. Except for now.
The Si Xiang slot is a gorgeous 27 payline, 5×4 reels machine that tells the tale of when the sky was divided by four mythological creatures that guarded the world.
Those creatures are very important to this tale, and to your wallet.
This new slot game is all about the free spins
The base game, we will say, can be a little slow. But you won’t have long to wait to hit the bonus game where one of the four creatures will be selected to be mega wilds.
Taking up anything from 3 to 5 extra wild spaces, they roam the reels giving you wins after wins until they suddenly stop.
You may play 5 free spins or 50. Only the guardians of the sky know how long they’ll remain on the reels. And that’s all part of the thrill of this Si Xiang slot game.
2. The Mystery of Long Wei by iSoftbet is surprising
Where Si Xiang took a myth and brought it to life, The Mystery of Long Wei slot is a little more generic.
Set high in a mountaintop, you’ve got all your traditional lucky Chinese animals on the reels; from the panda to the koi, to the dragon.
The Mystery of Long Wei slot has 40 bet lines, so has the highest maximum bet on our list at 0.40 a spin – it’s also the most volatile so be approach this Far East game with caution.
That said, if you do like risky machines, this iSoftbet video slot will almost certainly provide you with plenty of thrills.
2 types of free spins, both with colossal symbols
Every slot in this best new casino games list has something special in it’s DNA, and the colossal symbols are Long Wei’s best assets.
You can trigger the free spins bonus using scatters, at which point you’ll get 10 to 30 free spins with all the high paying symbols now taking a 3×3 space on the reels.
Or you can hit the Dragon re-spins and get 4×4 symbols on reels 2 to 5 for one to 3 spins and sit at the edge of your seat that they land and give you multiple 40 payline wins.
1. And the winner is… The Mask by NextGen Gaming
NextGen Gaming, we will grant you, is not a ‘small’ gaming provider.
In fact, they are now owned by SG Interactive, which is one of the biggest online gaming software in the world, having names such as Barcrest, Bally, Williams and more all under their umbrella.
But, NextGen is a studio that doesn’t tend to get the recognition it deserves, mostly because they don’t tend to make a big fanfare of their new game releases.
Which is a shame because their video slots are usually superb and they manage to put themes and mechanics together beautifully.
Based on the 1994 film with Jim Carrey
This hits all the right nostalgic notes as NextGen manages to bring to life the chaotic and charming nature of the main character in this one of a kind mobile phone gambling game.
The Mask is a 20 payline medium variance slot machine where you can still win a smokin’ 30,000x your total bet.
A pay both ways games, it’s got 4 random features that appear often but doesn’t distract you from the spinning of the reels.
Add a free spins bonus at the Coco Bongo club where you can get up to 5x wilds on the multipliers, and the features appear more often, and this is pure wild fun.
A must try for fans of movie based slot machines, and just fans of a good game well done.
