A new year, a new game! In fact, 5 new online slots games that the CasinoPlay.com crew are really looking forward to. Some are hitting our desktops and devices in January while others will be coming out later in the year, but they are all looking to be well worth the wait.
The CasinoPlay.com crew have tapped all our sources to try and find the online slots games that are going to be blazing hot in 2022. We have picked 5 that we think are going to make it big with online casino players around the world, the best of the best that the best studios are putting out there.
Stay tuned when the games are finally released to the international online casino community because we will be doing full, in-depth reviews once we get our eager hands on the final versions of these amazing online and mobile slots games.
The mobile casino world is growing by the day and the studios and game providers know that they have a massive international audience just itching to play on the devices that they carry around with them.
Almost every online slots game being developed today is being designed to work on both traditional desktops and on various mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. The world is moving to a mobile platform and the providers know that they need to put the online slots games in the hands of the online players wherever they may be.
It’s exciting times for the online and mobile casino industry, and it’s opening up incredible tech innovations that are making online and mobile casino gambling ever more thrilling.
So, while these games are not yet in your favourite international online or mobile casinos, and until they are actually playable, we won’t have all the final details, the chances are that they will be playable across multiple platforms.
And our sources have given us as much info as possible to get us really excited for games such as:
This is one game that we are certainly pumped up for. The teaser from Just For The Win showed us some amazing artwork and a solid storyline featuring two strong characters. We’ve seen and played a number of Wild West themed slots and they are good – but the Bandit and the Baron really looks amazing!
Artwork is beautiful and evokes the trope of the dusty Wild West town with the Land Baron and the Bandit being the main characters. The soundtrack is a cool modern reworking of the classic Western sounds made famous by Spaghetti Western directors like Sergio Leone (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly; A Fistful of Dollars, etc.).
From what we can see in early access, the Bandit and the Baron is a 5 reel, 5 row slot with up to 25 paylines. The game features include wilds, expanding wilds, and re-spins with a bonus feature triggered by landing 3 Bandit symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5. The bonus game has 3 options: Cash Symbol (1x to 25x the bet), Key Symbol (unlocks adjacent symbols), and Bandit Multiplier Symbol (multiplies all cash symbols in a row or reel by x2, x3, x5, or x10.
There is a buy bonus option as well.
RTP is posted at 96.09% and players can expect a high volatility and a max win of 25,000x the bet.
Gold Coin Studios is a Microgaming partner who are set to release what looks to be a fun and quirky cartoon-style online slot game that is packed with features.
Dr Wildshot: Mad Loot Lab takes us into the underground lair of the titular mad scientist Dr Wildshot in a very cool looking Rick & Morty/Dexter’s Lab style artwork. It looks great, and if the gameplay is anything as quirky as the style, it should be enormous fun to play.
The 5 reels, 5 row slot is absolutely jam packed with features like cascading reels, cluster pays, free spins, multipliers, random wilds, sticky wilds, symbol swaps, and more.
The mad doctor and his (rightly it looks like) absolutely terrified robot assistant should be hitting our favourite online casinos mid-Jan.
Elk Studios are one of those online casino game providers that we here at CasinoPlay.com are always keeping an eye on. They are building a solid rep for quality and exciting games and their latest to-be-released title is looking to continue that trend with style.
Mystic Orbs is a 5 reel, 5 row cluster pays slot that is, apparently, the fireworks we all need to kick off the year. The slot is set in an ancient temple with hidden mystical orbs and a rather terrifying dragon to overcome. Defeat the ancient dragon and you can win 10,000x your bet – which is certainly magical music to our ears.
But it’s not all about the stunning graphics and Ancient Orient soundtrack – Elk Studios are packing in the features as well. Anyone who has played Egg-o-matic knows that Elk Studios is all about the fun. The fun of the style, the fun of the theme, the fun of the playing, and we are certain Mystic Orbs will be just as enthralling.
Expect a host of features such as cascading reels, symbol upgrades, wilds, charged wilds, re-spins, multipliers, and a bonus game with persistent multipliers.
Look for Mystic Orbs at premium online and mobile casinos like Jackpot.io from the first week of January 2022.
Yggdrasil is one of those studios that we love to love. Engaging gameplay, amazing graphics, epic soundtracks, innovative features – this studio just seems to up the ante every time they release a blockbuster.
The Vikings series is one of our favourites, not just from Yggdrasil but of all the slots we pay regularly. Vikings Go Wild, Vikings Go Berzerk (and the soon-to-be-released update Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded), and Vikings Go To Hell have all firmly entrenched themselves into our often-replayed libraries thanks to amazing styling and great features. Vikings Go To Valhalla will be the next instalment in this thrilling saga series, and we can’t wait.
Nothing has been announced about the actual gameplay as yet, but we are sure we can expect even more treasure chests, re-spins, free spins, wilds, and hopefully even more fight features and rage meters.
This Vikings series is truly immersive online casino play at its best and, dare we hope, the latest version will be putting even more incredible bonus games and gameplay than you can shake a battle-axe at.
Vikings Go To Valhalla is expected to launch around March 2022 (and we are already saving up our bankroll!).
Big Time Gaming will always hold a special place in our revies for introducing the world to Megaways™, one of the most innovative and exciting developments to happen to the slots industry since Charles Fey built the Liberty Bell machine.
And they have teased us all with the news of a new Megaways™ online slots game that is possibly one of the most anticipated releases of the year – Apollo Pays Megaways™.
So far we are told that we can expect our favourite features like 117,649 ways to win, 6 reels, cascading reels, wilds, free spins, scatters, Mega Scatters, and Mega Features. And we can expect gorgeous graphics (in an Ancient Greece setting), thrilling soundtracks, and exemplary gameplay.
But it’s the max payout that has gotten us sitting up in interest – up to 116,030x your bet! That is some epic payout potential!
Apollo Pays Megaways™ is set to drop around end-Feb 2022 so get your spinning fingers ready.
We have already made it through two years of uncertainty and fear, and we refuse to let 2022 drag us down as well! Our year will be filled with great games, great playing, and great times wherever we happen to be.
And with just these 5 games awaiting us, we are sure we will be absolutely entertained all year.
