New Mobile Casino Games To Play This November 2014November 7th, 2014
Here’s an update of the latest mobile casino games to hit your screens and where you can play these beautiful new slots.
The last couple of weeks have seen some brilliant new casino games. Though really, we should be adding ‘slot machine’ to the front of the word ‘game’, as all the releases we are about to talk about are of the spinning reels variety.
What’s even more interesting is that the latest releases in question are each from some very different casino software providers, giving you some very different mobile slots to enjoy. You’ve got the fun and quirky Balloonies from IGT, the oldie but goodie Riviera Riches from Microgaming and the strangely wonderful The Lab from newcomer Elk Gaming.
Wanna know more about slots?
But wait, there’s more… there’s also two interesting new slot release from mobile casino software provider Play’n Go which are truly something to be excited about: Crazy Cow & Golden Ticket. Why are we excited? Read on and find out.
As always, we give you a choice of the best mobile phone casinos to play these games on after each snippet of the game.
Let’s have a look at our 2014 November Autumn collection.
We start with a big name who, until recently, has been doing good but not always amazing stuff on mobile. They go quite some way to make it up to us iPhone/iPad and Android casino games lovers by releasing a frankly brilliant, light, easy Balloonies slot game. And we mean light in the truest sense.
Using balloon animals as inspiration, this bright blue cartoony game floats the symbols on the reels from the bottom upwards, popping in an exciting burst on every win.
More symbols then show up from below, giving you an upside down ‘avalanche’ effect, reminiscent of Pixies of the Forest or Gonzo’s Quest.
It might not have the top jackpot amount of some other games found on IGT casinos, but don’t let that stop you. For one, this Balloonies slot is a little easier on your cash as you win frequently on these 20 paylines and chase down the magical x30 multiplier that can hit anytime, anywhere, during your gameplay.
Star rating? 5 / 5 balloon shape stars
Microgaming Riviera Riches
Strangely enough, this is the weakest link out of the five, which tells you how great all the rest of the mobile games are, as nothing beats playing on a good Microgaming casino. Yet Riviera Riches slot still provides some decent entertainment, especially for a low variance game that came out back in June 2011.
The 12 free spins with a 3x multiplier are the main appeal where you can get the biggest win of the game of 640x your bet.
But it’s the bonus game that impresses the most as you get taken to a full mini-roulette game where you pick one of 36 numbers, the roulette wheel spins and… boom! Instant cash.
If the ball lands on your number you’ll win decent cash, but even if you don’t, you are guaranteed to walk away with a 4x multiplier win. It’s the Zero you’ll be chasing though, as if the little ball lands on that, you’ll get a 36x multiplier, giving you that luxury Riviera feel.
The theme is fun enough, very ‘James Bond’ era of casino, where men wore three piece suits, women sip on expensive champagne and the Rolls Royce is parked outside as you drink fine Cognac and smoke Cuban cigars.
Nothing hugely original, but fun enough.
Star Rating? A solid 3 out of 5 stars from a solid, if not new, slot.
Play’n Go Golden Ticket
This 5×5 grid may not strike you as your typical mobile phone slot game, but that’s because it isn’t.
It’s in fact, unusual, weird, unexpected, but completely fun.
Slot purists will shy away from a Play’n Go game that doesn’t have the traditional paylines or features, but for the rest of you looking to the future of mobile casino gaming, check out this Golden Ticket slot machine.
The symbols dissapear whenever you get three or more symbols touching vertically or horizontally, anywhere on screen. These are not replaced, avalanche style like Balloonies, but instead one wild symbol shows up instead, which allows for another win and increases the multiplier meter on the left hand side.
If you clear the whole screen you get 1,000x your bet win. Making this the second hardest hitting slot in the list, next to Balloonies.
Add a beautifully hand drawn theme where the old fashioned circus characters come alive (when playing landscape mode, though it’s still very good in portrait) and a free spin bonus feature and you can see why we fell in love with this slot more than just a little bit.
Star Rating? 4 out of 5 stars, but only because it might be a little too ‘out there’ for traditional slot players.
Elk Gaming The Lab
Who is Elk Gaming? Where did they come from? Where are they going?
We can’t answer all of these right now, though we can tell you that they started their life in 2012 and are only now starting to bring about a selection of online slot titles. The Lab is the first to go to on handheld casinos, and we have to say. We were impressed.
Fans of the popular slot Starburst will be immediately intrigued by The Lab slot machine, though the symbols aren’t gems but chemical elements. Still, the way the graphics flash across the screen and the purple, pink and blue overtones,with immersive sound effects, just makes this dazzling and eye catching.
However, this is not a copy of NetEnt’s most famous son, this is something quite different. You trigger the free spins by getting the logo in the ‘vortex’ on reel two. Not as hard as you might think, though explaining the free spin bonus round will sound far more complicated than simply telling you to go play it and watch the magic.
It’s a 15 payline slot, which is familiar but completely new at the same time. Unless you’ve played Energoonz, which is the same game, but with little aliens.
It has added touches like a scatter that give a 2x multiplier every time it shows up anywhere and slot betting strategies, which change your bet accordingly depending on how much you are losing or winning. Easier for beginners to learn and great for experts who are feeling lazy and want to autoplay.
Star Rating? 5 Chemically induced Stars
Play’n Go Crazy Cows
The second release from the Play’n Go software provider, the Crazy Cows slot machine is another copy, but this one far more traditional than Golden Ticket. For one, it has your standard 20 paylines over 5 reels and 3 rows. For two, you’ll find all your traditional features, such as wilds, scatters and free spins.
So it’s probably the least unique of the latest casino game releases, yet it has a special weapon hiding in the barnyard. It has the same mechanics as Enchanted Meadow, probably one of the best Play’n Go games in their portfolio.
And it’s not just the pretty graphics that attracts. It’s the expanded wilds, with free re-spins if you’re lucky. It’s the click me game that decides how many free spins and multipliers you’ll get, giving a sense of thrill and hope that next time you’ll catch that 5x multiplier. It’s the cow craziness.
But whilst Enchanted Meadow was charming and cute, Crazy Cows is funny and cartoony. We prefer the original, but as so many people got turned off from the sweet theme, Crazy Cows was born for those who want to experience this fun low variance game, but just not willing to go play with the fairies.
Star Rating? 3.5 but only because we prefer the theme of the original 4 star Enchanted Meadow.
The Overall Verdict
Look we know this new mobile slots post is starting to sound like we’ve fallen in love with 5 slots at once and are being just a little bit too nice… but anyone who has been reading Lucky Mobile Casinos for any length of time will tell you that we are generally not that forgiving. It’s just been a good month for slots.
If we had to pick one to try, have a go at The Lab, as it’s just that little bit different. If you wanted bigger hits, then Balloonies is the one with your best hopes of walking away with big cash.
And if you want our two top casinos where you can play most of the games we’d go with:
- Guts Casino: It has them all except Crazy Cows which it will get imminently. Plus, you know, 15 free spins with no wagering requirements for most players. That helps too.
- CasinoLuck: Another well rounded casino with most of these new releases; except Microgaming. Not to mention 100 free spins after your first deposit.
