New Mobile Casino Games To Get You Through December 2014December 8th, 2014
And when we say ‘new casino games’ we really mostly mean ‘new mobile slots’. December 2014 has some big releases for you to enjoy and not many are particularly festive.
Every month we like to do a round-up of new games that have come out for you to enjoy.
And goodness do we have a selection for you, not to mention a certain game that has a certain throne like quality… if you know what we are saying, wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
With so much choice, there’s no much point stalling.
Let’s get right into the new mobile casino games you should be playing this cold, dark December (or for our Australian readers, the unbearably hot summer.)
The Game of Thrones slot
We start our list with the big Microgaming release everyone’s been talking about since back in February 2014. And 11 months later here it is in all its… not so glorious glory.
Not because it’s not a good game. Game of Thrones video slot is brilliant to play.
But the theme lacks a little imagination, with your high card symbols sharing the 5 reels with the crest of each of the reigning houses fighting for the Iron Throne.
But other than the theme, we have very little to complain about. You get to pick to play either the 245 ways to win or the 15 paylines version of the game (we prefer the latter), both of which are excellent, with stacked wilds and a blazing free spin bonus feature.

The Invisible Man machine
Pure film noir nostalgia, hunt down the invisible man as he gets up to no good in a quiet english town.
With roaming wilds filling your screen and 20 paylines that pay both ways, this is for gamblers who have a couple of hours of game playing to spare.
Because you have to be in it for a while, to truly appreciate the wins possible, especially as it’s all about the bonus games which can only be activated within the free spin feature.
Watch your budget on this one, but enjoy some surprising wins if you are willing to put your money where your mouth is.

The odd Santa Paws
We don’t get this theme. A polar bear as Santa Claus, giving presents to his not particularly well drawn arctic friends?
Someone at Microgaming games was put under pressure to come up with a Christmas slot at the last minute.
Still, once we started spinning, we recognised the simple joy of some simple spins. The Santa Paws video slot has 5 reels, 20 paylines and doesn’t really become interesting till you hit the free spins.
Then you couldn’t care less if the theme was full of pink elephants, as you get two wilds and random multipliers up to 7x on any winnings.

The classic Jackpot 6000
Who doesn’t know about this classic slot from NetEntertainment? They have simplified it for mobile, so fans of the game may be surprised by it’s streamlined look.
Non-fans should be careful to read the rules before playing.
As this is not for the faint of heart. The only way to win big at this Jackpot 6000 slot game is to bet back any winnings you’ve made in the base game through the Supermeter mode, so you hit those three jokers and a guaranteed 6,000 coin jackpot.
The trick is to know when to bet, when to cash out, and when to double up with the gamble feature.
Not as simple as you might think.

The Gemix Game
A Play’n GO game like no other, think ‘Bejewelled’ with a slight mix of Candy Crush, but as a slot machine.
You’ll be playing on a 7×7 grid and trying to hit 5 touching gem symbols.
These will explode and keep cascading down from above, as the multiplier meter increases with each win.
Add random wilds, a super charged meter with special candy destroying power, and three worlds to work your way through, and this is perfect for the Android smartphone and iPhone generation who want a game as much as a gambling experience.
Star Rating: A gemstastic 3 stars
The Charming Merry Xmas
Probably our favourite Xmas slot of the year, don’t think that means this little beauty is particularly complicated. Because it isn’t.
It’s beautiful, and simple, and wonderfully christmasy charming.
The symbols come stacked and pay when there’s three or more anywhere on the five reels, on a payline. That’s left to right, right to left or right bang in the centre of the game.
But it’s the wilds that bring the magic, coming with an up to 5x random multiplier. There was much fun to be had chasing multiple larger wins.
Star Rating: A classic 4 stars of festive fun
The Buster Safe mobile casino game
Though you can play it online if you want, Buster Safe by mFortune casino is really far better suited for the smaller screen.
It’s good fun to play for a few quick spins when you are in between your seasonal shopping spree, but to be honest, it’s probably the weakest of the selections this month. Mostly because winning big is fairly difficult with this low variance game.
Still, with three bonus mini games, free spins and wilds that hit often, you’ll certainly be entertained and your money won’t disappear as fast as you’re spending it on christmas presents.
Star Rating: 2 stars of bank robbing mayhem
The Blackjack classic 3 hand
We decided to end this post on the only release that isn’t a mobile slot, because it’s so rare to get anything but these days.
So well done to NetEnt for releasing a beautiful three handed blackjack table for use on iOS and Android phones & tablets.
With a betting range of 1 to 500 in cash, most gamblers should be able to enjoy this new mobile casino game.
The classic rules apply, with split, double up and the dealer stopping at 17 upwards. It’s not very flash, but with the little space available on phone and tablet casinos, it’s very nicely done indeed.
Star Rating: 3.5 stars per hand
