Top 6 New Casino Games That Bring The Zing In Spring This May 2016May 8th, 2016
It’s the first week of the month folks! You know what that means… we look back at all the new slots that came out over the last 3 weeks and tell you which are worth playing.
The buzz has died down, that ‘new game smell’ is now a past memory, and with a little perspective we can look back at the new casino releases of the past month and tell you which are still giving us a Spring zing.
NetEnt didn’t make it last month, but will they make the cut in our new casino games to play this May 2016?
Thunderkick Games, our winner last month, doesn’t make it on the list with their new Rift slot, as whilst not bad, it wasn’t superb either.
However, we are happy to report than an old favourite casino games provider is back on top of the slots, taking the number one spot, which they haven’t done in longer than we can remember.
It’s a crazy slot world out there, and we love judging them each and every month.
Our top May casino slots for 2016
Another month, another influx of new slot machines to play. Sad, but true, but getting new roulette or blackjack tables are few and far between,
Still, that doesn’t stop us from loving these spinning games that are all luck, no skills, and all fun.
We try and be as objective as possible, picking video slots from different providers to give you variety, but also how much fun it is to play, for a game of its type.
It’s not particularly scientific. It’s based of years of playing, and a lot of arguing amongst ourselves.
Ultimately, we always ask: would we still be playing this new slot in 6 months time? Even if just in passing?
6. The blockbuster Bally Titanic slot
One of the biggest slot game creators kicks off our list, as Scientific Games bring you the Titanic slot via their Bally slot studios.
Based on the James Cameron movie by the same name, we suspect few people need to be introduced to the Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet extravaganza.
True, this 25 payline 5 reel video slot is a little snobby – you need to bet a minimum of 0.80 a spin to get the right ‘class’ ticket, and be in with a chance of winning one of the four jackpots, and trigger the extra bonus features.
But if you can afford it, it’s well worth the effort, with so many bonus features that time passes quickly as you wait for one of two hard hitting free spin bonus features to arrive.
Be careful with your budget, but much like the movie, you’ll be surprised at how long you can stick around here before sinking… or surviving with a jewel of a fortune.
5. Why Golden Caravan instead of Sails of Gold
Play’n GO studios released two new games this last month, which, at first glance, almost look identical.
Both have 10 paylines, 5 reels, and trigger 10 free spins on 3 scatters or more.
Both, in fact, are excellent games, with the theme of Marco Polo traveling through the dessert and the great sail ships of Christopher Columbus creating defining and superb themes.
Where they differ is in how they play
With the Sails of Gold slot, you get your 10 free spins often, and with an extra wild thrown in for good luck, this journey to undiscovered lands is rarely boring.
But, the Golden Caravan slot has a few extra surprises, namely that not only do you get an extra wild, but you start the free spins with a 2x multiplier.
Add that every time you find 3 scatters, you increase said multiplier and reset the free spins to 10, and like us, you could end up with 8x multiplier and playing over 40 free spins.
You can, theoretically, win as much playing one or the other, but we felt the thrill is a little higher in Golden Caravan.
4. Win Sum Dim Sum because… Microgaming
What would a top casino games list be without at least one Microgaming slot game thrown in there?
True, when we heard this was coming out on the same day as Thunderkick’s Rift, we were more excited for the smaller provider, but Microgaming yet again shows that even their mediocre looking machines at better than other’s best efforts.
True, the theme is a little boring (spinning dumplings doesn’t spark the imagination), but this is Microgaming doing what they do best.
Namely give you 15 paylines with free spins, expanded wilds, and 3,333 times your bet top win.
It’s hard to top those numbers, especially as for such a big win, you’ll be surprised how long you can keep snacking on this all your can eat Chinese buffet.
3. Yeap, the Jimi Hendrix slot made it
Whilst we were unable to hide our disappointment in the fact that the Jimi Hendrix mobile slot didn’t live to expectations, there’s no denying that this is still a fun, entertaining, psychedelic slot game.
True, when it comes to it’s big ‘2016 Rock Tour’, Guns n Roses is clearly winning ahead of Jimi, but don’t underestimate the man with the best guitar rifts in history.
With four bonus features, re-spins, and wilds of all shapes and sizes, this NetEntertainment casino game certainly gives you a good concert of a game, if only for a short trip on your way to another favourite from the same provider.
2. The surprising Wild Chase Quickspin slot
Now, we have to admit, we found this Wild Chase slot game difficult to place. Is it really all that better from the Jimi Hendrix slot, or is it just that it’s novelty makes it a little more exciting?
Why novel? Well the theme is well done, with a modern take on the heist game, as you stroll the beautiful hillside roads of Monaco, chasing high end thrills on your yacht.
It’s part living the high life, part heist movie
You won’t win as much here as you might in some of the others on our list, but with so much fast pace action on these 5 reels full of sticky wins, wild reels and multipliers, you won’t care.
Perfect for beginners, and that end of the month feeling when you want your cash to last as long as possible, whilst still hoping for a couple of big wins.
1. NextGen take the crown with King Kong
Well hello there NextGen Gaming. When was the last time you made it to the top of our list hey?
Sure, you’ve had your new casino games in our lists from time to time, but number 1? It’s been a while.
Which actually, isn’t so much that this King Kong slot on mobile is the best game ever, but more that the last month saw some pretty so-so casino games from all the other providers.
Still, there’s no doubt this is the best of game to play this May 2016, and would have made a list even if others had brought their A game.
An iconic look, with free spins that last forever
This is the King Kong from the 1920s – with art deco decorations and beautifully hand drawn design, it’s one of the prettier NextGen slots we’ve seen in a while.
He’s not an easy creature to conquer. In fact, this mobile slot can be a little unforgiving to your wallet at times. But peel away the layers, and have a little patience, and you’ll find a beast with a heart of gold.
It’s the killer features that will melt your heart; with expanded wilds and a free spins feature where we’ve personally experienced 75 free spins at once, with more easily on the cards.
