Top 8 Casino Slot Games You’ll Be Playing April 2017April 7th, 2017
It’s that time again! We take a look at all the new game releases over the last month and tell you which you should still be playing, now the hype has died down.
No one can be expected to keep up with all the new online mobile slots that seem to pop up on an almost daily basis.
As such, every month, we take a look back at all the biggest (and smallest) games casino releases, and let you know which are still worth playing.
It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to play all the machines. Might as well be us, so you don’t waste your cash and time.
Who made our top April 2017 slots list?
March’s top casino games list was full of small video software providers who manages to compete big with the big boys.
Quickspin’s Hot Sync slot took the crown, but one Yggdrasil slot particularly impressed, and even Elk Gaming managed to get an entry – yet Microgaming, Playtech and other big casino softwares could barely make it on the list.
April, however, sees a reversal, as the big boys are back, and our number one slot will surprise… probably no one.
But there’s still a few in here we suspect you haven’t had a chance to play yet, so read on to see which video slots will be taking your fancy over the next month.
8. Cool Bucks by Microgaming isn’t pretty, but it’s fun
After Microgaming’s poor showing last month, we doubted if they would manage to even make our best slots for April 2017 list.
Especially when we saw that of their two new machines, one was just a classic slot with a few multipliers, and the other was a slot that looks like it was made in the clipart era of the 1990s.
So imagine our surprise when we found out that both of these Microgaming slot games were actually good fun to play.
However, it was the very un-pretty Cool Bucks that made our list, thanks to frequent free spin rounds and stacks of wilds.
We are suckers for some good bonus games after all.
7. Matsuri is super pretty, but a little dangerous
Play’n GO’s new slot game, on the other hand, is the prettiest thing you’ll probably see all month.
Literally translated as ‘festival’ in Japanese, the reels overlooks a star studded lake, full of pretty city lights in the distance.
But it’s the fact that you get expanded wilds during the free spins which walk from the right hand to the left hand side of the screen, that makes this casino game so worth playing.
However, as a high variance slot machine, you do have to be careful, as they do not guarantee big wins.
But, with a 3,000 times your bet win in a single spin, this festival could bring plenty of smiles to your face. \
6. Choose Siberian Storm Dual Play over MegaJackpot Star Lanterns
Over the last 30 days we’ve seen released 3 really good IGT slot games.
Champion Raceway was, perhaps the weakest of the lot, simply for being a fairly simple classic slot. Yet we’d still recommend it if you love 3 reel games.
However, it was two big releases that go all the limelight, namely a new MegaJackpots slot, with a progressive that can hit a million in cash, and a new version of an old classic.
We love those big white tigers
And whilst we probably had more fun on the Star Lanterns slot, it misses out on the list for being a copy of the previous Balloonies game. Copies are fun, but stretch the meaning of ‘new’, even if you do add a jackpot.
But isn’t our number 6 choice also a copy? No, not technically.
You get two Siberian Storm games at once, who share one centre mega reel that is full of stacked symbols and stacked wild, adding an extra dimension to a wonderful classic.
Impossibly, those tigers have found another way to win our hearts, yet again.
5. Leprechaun Hills by Quickspin makes the list!
It’s not quite the top of the list, as with last month, but there’s no doubt that this game studio is doing something right that they get their slot once again on our top casino games lists.
The graphics let it down slightly, relying a little too much on generic Irish and celtic symbols to really pop out of the screen. But it’s nice enough, with big bold colours everywhere you turn.
What brings it to the top of the pile is the two bonus games, that come often; the free spins with mystery symbols, and the lucky re-spin bonus with stacks of extra winning symbols.
Don’t underestimate this Leprechaun, there’s plenty of gold hiding at the end of this Quickspin slot rainbow.
4. That’s right: it’s the Dolphin Gold Stellar Jackpots slot
Alright, alright. We know we didn’t put Star Lanterns on the list because it’s a copy with a jackpot.
And this Dolphin Gold Stellar Jackpot online slot is exactly that; the same game as Dolphin Gold, except with 3 jackpots on top.
It doesn’t even have a new theme! So why is it number four?
Mostly it’s because we genuinely like this Lightning Box slot game; and they do so few truly great machine, it’s worth celebrating the big successes when they come.
3. Rainbow Riches Free Spins
Barcrest seem to be pumping out a new Rainbow Riches slot every other month, namely because the original is still their best loved machine.
So why not try and recreate that success by using the same theme, but changing the slot game mechanics? We guess?
The thing is, they somehow still manage to make fresh interesting games with that stupid smiling Leprechaun on the side of the reels.
We’re not one to complain as this 10 payline 5 reel slot machine is simple, fun, and uncomplicated. Exactly what made the original so loveable.
What it adds is exactly what it says in the title. Free spin bonus games that pay, and are definitely worth chasing.
2. Superman slot wins over other DC Playtech games
This last month saw Playtech game studios pump out a whole new set of DC jackpot slots to replace the fact that they’ve lost the Marvel games.
Many of them where good, some were… not so good (Looking at you Man of Steel).
But the one that grabbed our hearts was the original Superman Movie slot based on the 1978 film with Christopher Reeves.
Capturing that nostalgia perfectly, with some wonderful bonus games that match the mood of the film, and an epic score, we had great fun playing on this Playtech gem.
1. Who doesn’t love Jungle Spirit Call of The Wild?
Who, here, is surprised that our top number one game is a NetEnt mobile phone slot game?
No one? We’re going to not take that as an insult that we favour this provider, and instead assume you’ve played this marvellous game.
In our defence, it’s been a while since NetEnt made it to the top of our chart, and we think the Jungle Spirit slot is worthy.
There is no doubt that you can get beautifully huge wild wins, especially if you get to the free spins and expand the reels from 243 ways to win, to 1024 ways to win.
But… the free spins are rare. Yet that didn’t stop our enjoyment, as any spin can reap rewards, thanks to the fact that any spin can expand any of the animal high paying symbols.
Trust us; you’ll want to take a walk on the wild side.
