The January weather has kept us indoors for almost every waking moment this month so thankfully we have a few new slot games to keep us entertained until the snow melts. This batch follows the latest trend of “historical-based games” which has companies reaching back to classic stories or characters as inspirations for their new creations. It goes without saying that most of them are based on stories that are not protected by copyright and are available for anyone to use. Feel free to click on the videos for each game below to get a sneak preview of what each has to offer.
First off we have a rather generic title that won’t have many of you too excited due to its basic game play, but those who appreciate classic designs will want to give it a spin. An homage to the 1920s, Deco Diamonds Slots by Microgaming is sure to have your toes tapping with it’s big band soundtrack while you enjoy its 3 bonus wheels full of prizes. The familiar symbols of cherries, bells and sevens will appeal to traditionalists, but have those of you who crave action searching for another slot since there are no unique bonus rounds to be found. With bet amounts between 10¢ and $50, and a RTP of 96.02%, those who do play this better be ready for some wild swings in their balances.
Next we have a medieval-inspired title from NextGen Gaming with a crazy stone game board and tons of bright gems across the reels…oh and 4 adorable dragons flying in the corners of the screen. The imaginatively titled Dragon Wins Slots has a background of a beautiful sky with floating islands and wispy clouds, and the soundtrack is a whimsical score that will have you thinking of the movie Dragonheart while you chase cash prizes.
There are stacked and expanding Dragon Wilds to accompany the game’s 2 unique free spin modes, with one giving you extra Wilds during your freeroll and the second giving you a boost with 3 reels full of Wilds for each spin. These additions should ensure that you’ll be seeing dragon fire shooting around the wheels to highlight big wins along the game’s 40 colorful paylines. Not to mention, each of the cute dragons can blast some of their own hot breath onto the reels to increase your wins as they watch you play from the sidelines.
Last on our list today is Pied Piper Slots from up and coming software provider Quickspin, which will transport you to the wonderful mouse-filled German town of Hamelin. The first thing you’ll notice is how beautiful all of the colors are, with the Piper himself sporting a luxurious purple outfit that will have you green with jealousy! The features in this game makes the fairy tale come alive with the expanding, Walking Wild of the Piper marching across the reels blasting his flute getting the mice and the cash to follow him.
The majesty of this title is constantly reinforced by the classical horns blasting in the distance to punctuate big wins, especially when you are lucky enough to hit a batch of bonus symbols which will trigger, Big, Super or Epic Wins. There’s also a hidden re-spin feature that can only be triggered on the last spin of the Piper Re-Spins which will give you an extra five spins to try to add cash to your balance.
We expect that you’ll have your hands full with these three new titles for now, but we’ll be back with another recap of new releases soon. Good luck!
