New Mobile Casino Games Out Now In February 2015February 9th, 2015
We’ve got 4 new mobile casino games out this February, mostly Microgaming slots, but also one beautiful blackjack table too.
It’s always nice to get new casino games to play, and this February, you are spoilt for choice.
Though you could, of course, still be enjoying the incredibly fun Tornado Farm Escape slot from NetEnt, many of us will be looking to dabble in something new this week.
Seeing as we have a lot of ground and choice to cover, we should just jump right in and give you our opinion of each the new games in question.
Cricket Star by Microgaming
We start with, in our opinion, the weakest link in the selection.
If we are going to be 100% honest, we are not fans of Cricket as a theme. So if you like the game, maybe add one star for the fact that this is probably the only cricket slot you’ll ever find online.
But just because the theme is rare, doesn’t make this new slot game particularly good. It’s an exact copy of the slot Football Star that came out back in May 2014 by the same casino software provider.
We gave that one 3 stars, but because of the weak theme here, we’ve removed one.

How this 243 ways to win slot plays
Don’t get us wrong. There’s plenty here to enjoy. You get collapsing reels and random expanding wilds at any point during the base game.
You think this would make things exciting, but with barely anything won much more than 5x your bet, it’s all just pretty entertainment for little rewards,
The free spins is where any of the real entertainment, and the wins, can be found. Mostly because these cascading reels have up to 10x multiplier during the free games.
Add richer reels and more stacked wilds, and you can get some good 50x to 100x your bet on a very lucky round.
However, at generally, you’ll be lucky to walk away with about 30x your bet. This mobile slot machine won’t eat your budget quickly, but then it won’t increase it by too much either.

Miss Midas By NextGen Gaming
This is one of NextGen’s famous Superbet slots.
But we’ll get to that in a minute. First, let’s look at the the Miss Midas slot theme.
Set on the old tale of King Midas whose touch turned everything to gold, this twists the story, and make Midas.. a Beauty Queen?
It’s a very romantic slot, all ready for the 14th of February 2015. Peacocks, fruits, fairytale castles and roses all litter the screen to bring a soft glow of enchantment.
Yet, considering this is a brand new game, when you load the screen the graphics and sounds feel a little dated. Like something from 5 years ago.
How to best play on these 25 paylines
Whilst usually we would say that you can’t play NextGen superbets without using it, here you can.
Best Superbet slots?
- Merlin’s Magic Respins
- Judge Dredd
- Foxin Wins
Because even at it’s lowest bet of 0.25, you still get the Miss Midas Wild turn the throne and peacock symbol around her wild when she appears.
Pay a little extra and you can add the fruit symbol, and one more superbet and you get the rose symbol, both of which are more frequent and more likely to allow 4 or 5 wild symbols every time Miss Midas shows up on screen.
During the free spins round this wild bonus feature become much more interesting, as it’s not just Midas that turns other symbols into wilds, but any of the other wild symbols. Leading, potentially, to a screen full of wilds.
Forget the slightly dated theme. You’ll find your ‘grand amour’ in gold playing this high variance slot.
Star rating: 4 stars
Secret Admirer by Microgaming
This is an ooooold Microgaming slot which is now playable at all good mobile casinos online with this software.
When you first load it, you’ll think the only reason they released this game is in order to fit with Valentines coming up.
And of course, you’ll be right. Or at least partly right. They did go through their old collection of Valentine slots, and came up with this Secret Admirer slot.
Why? When you open it, it’s nothing unusual, it looks as dated as Miss Midas, but at least this one has the excuse that it actually is old.
Roses, perfume bottles, chocolate boxes… every cliche, as well as the high card symbols, are here.
But if you think you can handle being wooed by a Victorian, then there’s plenty of reasons to stay.
Simple, well-balanced, 9 paylines
The trick here is to budget accordingly and not bet too hard too quickly.
The reason being, you are waiting for at least two scatters (the diamond rings – what else?) to show up at least adjacent to each other to trigger the free spins.
You’ll only get 3. But the two reels with the scatters will remain in position and pay out each time.
Any additional scatter will do the same, and if you get 5 on the reels, you’ll get an additional 3 free spins all paying out for 5 scatters each time.
We’ve had some impressive wins of 80x to even 150x during this slots bonus feature. But equally got nothing.
Still, with a good chance at some decent wins, Secret Admirer mobile slot is a simple but generous game.
Star rating: 3 stars
Vegas Single Deck Blackjack Gold
Played with 1 regular deck of cards on each turn, this is one beautiful mobile blackjack table game.
You can only play one hand at a time, but the beauty in it is how simple it is to play.
Whether swiping between chips to change your bet, dealing your hand or, if you’re in a rush, turning on quick deal to skip the lovely animations that make it seem like a real life deal, this Blackjack game is perfect for tablets, iPhone, iPads and Android mobile phones.
The rules of this blackjack game
This is a Hole card game. Dealer peeks on 10 value cards and aces, but they must hit till they play a soft 17 and double down on hard 9, 10 and 11.
You can only split once to make two hands and only be dealt one car on split aces. A split ace and 10 counts as 21 and not as blackjack.
All pretty simple and standard.
