The Latest New December Slots: From Highlander To The Orient ExpressDecember 21st, 2017
As usual, we round up the best new releases of the last couple of weeks and let you know everything you need to know about them.
Every couple of weeks we like to look back at any new casino slots that have come out and which we think will grab our attention for more than a couple of spins.
This isn’t full of Christmas cheer and happiness; for that you’ll have to go to our December slot madness post.
In fact, we end the year by going on a journey; all the way from the Highlands of Scotland, passing through the capitals of Europe, and finally ending down in the deep blue sea.
Who are the new slots winners and losers?
We should point out that we like to give slot games a couple of weeks to see if they are any good – so fans of IGT’s Harley Davidson slot might have to wait till the next casino blog to see it on the list.
Where Can I Find All The Best Gambling Slots Below?
VideoSlots Casino has the biggest selection of slots thanks to over 50 providers in their portfolio
Instead, this best new December 2017 list of slots consists of the ones we know we’ll come back to over the next few weeks to try and get lucky.
Some, especially the number 1 spot, we might put in our very favourite of the year.
Avoid The Tetris Super Jackpot slot
So there are some very clear losers this time around, and not in a “not quite good enough” to get on the list kind of way.
These are the “what they hell where they thinking? Avoid unless you like being poked by the slot equivalent of a hot poker” kinda game.
The absolute worst of the lot has to be the Tetris Super Jackpot slot by WMS, which no in-game jackpot could save from it’s boring humdrum.
It should have been a brilliant casino slot mobile game, based on a brand that generations loved. Instead it ended up being slow, boring, and with very little payoff.
Which, having recently re-played the original game, is actually fairly accurate representation of Tetris. So… win?
Not the only loser: bye bye Wacky Panda and Rapunzel’s Tower
The Wacky Panda slot by Microgaming is probably not hugely surprising. A 3 reel classic slot with little in the way of decent wins, it was just boring.

But their take on Fairytale slot left us without a happy ending, as all the sticky wilds in the world couldn’t stop us from being a little bit bored of never quite getting to the top of the tower.
How we picked the latest best 6 December 2017 slots
And so the list gets much smaller as we are left with a diverse range of casino game slot studios.
The good news is that this is full of those gaming studios who, maybe, don’t get the attention they deserve all year round, but who should get a little more.
Although the clear winner is obviously Microgaming who manages to get two in our top six, despite bombing so badly with Wacky Panda.
6. The Highlander slot starts our journey
There’s nothing like a little nostalgia to get you in the mood to spin, and with 5 movies, 2 television series, an animated series 10 original novels, and 19 comic book issues, there’s lots of nostalgia to go around.
This Microgaming Highlander slot machine is based around the original, and arguably, the best of the series, with all the main characters coming back to split heads.
During the base game you find yourself in the Highlands of Scotland, whilst the free spins bonus games will see you head into 1980s New York where an electric storm promises you a wild time.
What you need to know about Highlander game:
- The minimum bet of Highlander is 0.40 a spin
- The maximum bet is 30 a spin
- You get 5 reels with 243 ways to pay
- Highlander is a medium volatility slot machine
- You can win over 3,400 times your bet
- You’ll find wilds, scatters and free spin game rounds
- 3 scatters trigger 10 free spins with quickening wilds
What are Quickening Wilds? Basically, you’ll get random wilds placed on the five reels during the free games. After each electrical storm, you are guaranteed more and more wilds.
So if the storm hits on every one of the 10 spins, you could end up with over 10 wilds on the last spin.
5.The under-rated Samurai Split NextGen game
What really annoys us about Nextgen slot game studios is that they make really brilliant games.
Why is that annoying? Because they just can’t compete with the graphics of so many of the other software providers, who make glitzier games that stand out.
So Gems like this Samurai Split slot will get lost as players choose brighter, sparklier, jewels. But do give this unusual game a second look.
What you need to know about the Samurai Split slot:
- The minimum bet is 0.40 a spin
- The maximum bet is 100 a spin
- You get 5 reels with 25 paylines
- Samurai Split is medium volatility slot machine
- You can win up to 71,424 in cash, in one spin
- The split symbol features gives you up to 32x multipliers
What is the split symbol feature? Well, you know how some games give you double symbols, so you can get 10 of a kind wins?
In Samurai Split, the titular hero can show up and split multiple symbols, only instead of giving you bigger ‘of a kind wins’, those splits give you bigger multipliers.
It’s fun, it’s manic, it’s surprisingly rewarding.
4. Red Tiger Gaming gets on the list with Masquerade
Masquerade slot by Red Tiger Gaming is one of those machines that you’ll either love or hate – hence why it’s not higher up this list.
However, with it’s lavish baroque style and hexagonal reels, this is visually stunning, with simple game mechanics that are strangely compelling.
What you need to know about the Masquerade video slot:
- The minimum bet is 0.20 a spin
- The maximum bet is 200 a spin
- You get 5 hexagonal reels with 20 paylines
- Samurai Split is low to medium volatility slot machine
- You can win up to 1,000 times your bet
- You have stacked symbols that pay adjacent to each other
- Mystery stacked symbols unmask to give you wins
It’s not a complicated game – the stacked symbols are the feathers in this glorious mask, as they pay when you get them on a winning payline from left to right, but on any reel.
Meaning you can get a 3 of a kind win by getting the symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4, for example.
The mystery mask symbols, that bring even bigger stacks will also give you some quick thrills for those who love simple slots.
3. All aboard The Orient Express mobile slot
We can’t remember a time a Yggdrasil didn’t get on our best slots for online casinos list.
They might not always make it to the top spot, but they consistently provide us with intriguing mobile slot machines that keep us coming back for a second, third, and fourth look.
Based around the old train journey that would cross Europe in pure luxury, there’s no murder here, just adventure.
What you need to know about Yggdrasil’s Orient Express:
- The minimum bet for Orient Express is 0.20 a spin
- The maximum bet is 100 a spin
- You get 5 reels with 20 paylines
- Again, another medium volatility phone slot
- You can win up to 1,150 times your bet
- You get multiple wilds, scatters, and free spin features
- You can travel to four different city, each with their own special bonuses
That’s what you get with this Yggdrasil Gaming slot; four machines in one.
In Paris you have walking wilds, In Venice multipliers, Belgrade has wild reels and Istanbul up to 12 random wilds on any one spin.
It’s hard to be bored when you can swap and change your slot destination at will.
2. The heat is on with Girls With Guns Jungle Heat
Who cares if it’s December? If you are the type who wants to escape Christmas and New Year madness with a little jungle fever, this is the mobile casino game for you.
Technically the Girls With Guns Jungle Heat online slot has been around for years, but Microgaming has only just recently re-released it for mobile and tablet casinos.
A firm favourite with Microgaming UK casino players and beyond, these girls know how to bring the heat.
