Ready for another week of hard graft? (I didn’t think so). At least with our updated list of brilliant new online casino games that have recently made their debuts at the online casinos, you have something to look forward to when you get home! We have returned with our accurate weekly report and this time we will look at the new casino titles launched in the past seven days.

Rather than tease you about the figure, I might as well just come out and say that there were 20 new casino games in total that hit the casinos last week (it is in the title anyway!). That total is down on recent weeks but still ensures that we have at least an average of 20 each week so far in 2022.

We have given reviews to three of those new titles. One on Tuesday, one on Saturday, and one a few weeks back, as we were fortunate to know about that release for some time. On Tuesday, we brought news of and an in-depth review of the release of Goblin Heist Powernudge by Pragmatic Play. That slot is themed on a greedy goblin who has plans to loot a castle of its prized possessions. Of course, while he goes about his business, you can grab some loot of your own liking via features, including Powernudges, free spins, a respins feature, and more!

Then, to ensure that you had a detailed review of another fantastic new slot, we brought you Betsoft’s Kensei Blades on Saturday just gone. That 720 ways-to-win slot offers a fantastical Japanese theme, pays both ways, and has a plethora of features including free spins, wilds, scatters, and multipliers!

The other slot released this week that we already know about was Magic Spins™ from Wazdan. We reviewed this about a month ago as the talented team at Wazdan kindly gave us a sneak peek of the demo. As you will see from our Magic Spins review, that epic title features the innovative Hold the Jackpot feature game that could hand out jackpot prizes, and a whole heap of other bonus features including wilds, bonus buy, re-spins, and a symbol collect feature.

So what else can you expect? Well, we have delivered 6 mini-reviews of some other great titles launched during the past seven days. Plus, at the end of this report, you will find a complete rundown of all the new titles waiting for you at your favourite online casinos.

Recap Last Report: Did you miss last week’s report? Then you missed out news of 22 new casino titles including Golden Catch (Big Time Gaming), Temple Tumble 2 Dream Drop (Relax Gaming), and Megapearl GIBABLOX™ (Reel Play / Yggdrasil). Still, you can always check out that report here, and any of the others that we have produced in the past.

Our Week 20 2022 (May) Mini-Reviews – 6 Hot New Slots at Online Casinos Now!

To get you in the mood for the full list of new casino games coming, we have put together 6 mini-reviews of some of the bigger titles released last week. These come courtesy of iGaming developers such as Red Tiger Gaming, NoLimit City, Play’n GO, iSoftBet, Gamomat, and Reel Play/Relax Gaming.

Alchemy (Relax Gaming)

The Alchemy video slot takes you into a medieval theme where you embark on an ancient mystical journey into a bewitched biosphere where alchemists are hard at work, creating the all-powerful Philosopher’s Stones capable of turning lead into gold. Turn your spins into cash over 5×3 reels with 10 pay lines as your laboratory churns out alchemy symbols of Metal, Copper, Platinum, Philosopher’s Stone, Iron, and Bismuth.

Special features include the scatter symbols. Land 3 to trigger the free spins bonus game, which comes with re-triggers via more scatters or simply by landing wild symbols. On top of this, wild symbols expand to fill the reels and increase your chances of landing big wins and have the ability to upgrade symbols.

Combination Spin Bet Multipliers: Symbols pay for 3, 4, or 5 on a pay line from left to right. The combination pay-outs are Metal (10x 50x, 1,000x), Copper (10x, 100x, 200x), Platinum (20x, 125x, 250x,), Philosopher’s Stone (20x, 150x, 300x), Iron (100x, 250x, 500x), and Bismuth (50x, 200x, 500x). 3, 4, or 5 sun symbol scatters pay 2x, 20x, or 50x your spin bet.

Mount Olympus is where the all-wise and all-powerful gods gather to unleash their might on the reels with the help of weapons forged by the greatest blacksmith in the realm, Hephaestus. Here we see 5×3 reels sat in the middle of a Greek temple, high in the clouds of Olympus. 10 regular paying symbols will ignite your bank balance, but triggering the free spins or respins feature will see the temperature rise to volcanic levels.

Look out for the ‘book’ symbol, as this is wild, and it acts as a scatter. The free spins game awards 10 free spins, with the chance for re-triggers to fan the flames of the kiln. The book casts its magic to select a special symbol that can become stacked at any point when a win is possible, bringing the possibility of godly wins.

Triggering Fire Respins will see the chance to land cash symbols on the reels, as well as the chance at a jackpot prize. If the gods are on your side, and you fill all the positions, your loyalty will be rewarded with the Inferno jackpot! If this sounds like a promising slot, why not go and check out the free version?

Golden Jokers Double UP (iSoftBet)

iSoftBet takes you back to the days of classic fruits, 7s, bells, diamonds, and the famous joker over 5×4 reels on a modern 1,024 ways-to-win no pay lines slot. The theme is all about that traditional casino fun giving you a slot title with a wheel of fortune, 3 fixed jackpots, free spins, a buy feature option, and the chance to raise your bets to increase your chances of landing the joker’s bonus wheel of fortune.

In the base game, there is the dice wild symbol on reels 2, 3, and 4 acting as a substitute symbol. These wilds become even more powerful during the Golden Jokers Double Up slot’s lucrative free spins bonus round in which the wild symbols reveal 2x or 3x multipliers on winning combinations when they substitute as a wildcard. Plus, there’s a bonus wheel of fortune game triggered by scatters. 3, 4, or 5 scatters gives you 1-, 2-, or 3-wheel spins, respectively. This wheel of fortune is the key to 8, 10, 12 or 15 free spins as well as the ‘Grand’, ‘Major’, or ‘Mini’ jackpots, which will pay 50x, 100x, or 50x your total spin bet respectively.

If you want to skip waiting for the bonus wheel, there’s a ‘buy bonus’ option which will cost you 100x your total spin bet. Or you can increase your chances of landing the bonus wheel via a ‘double-up’ side bet that doubles the height of the scatter symbol. You can activate this ‘double up’ feature just 2x your total spin bet. All-in-all, what a fun game!

Combination Spin Bet Multipliers: Symbols pay when 3, 4, or 5 land on adjacent reels running on consecutively from‌ left to right (the first symbol in the combination must always be on reel 1). The pay table on the slot is dynamic, so when you change the bets, the payouts next to combinations also change. Here are the payouts: Joker (5x, 10x, 15x), Red 7 (2.5x, 5x, 10x), Blue 7 (2.5x, 5x, 10x), Bell (1.5x, 4x, 1.5x), Cherry (1.5x, 4x, 5x), Grapes (0.5x, 2.5x, 5x), Orange (0.5x, 2.5x, 5x), Lemons (0.25x, 2x, 4x), Plums (0.25x, 2x, 4x), Melon (0.25x, 2x, 4x), Pear (0.25x, 2x, 4x).

Idol of Fortune (Play’n GO)

Themed on the Hindu god of Ganesha, Idol Fortune, a slot you can play for free here, takes you into a world of wisdom, intellect, and understanding. The son of Shiva (the God of Destruction) and Parvati (goddess of power, nourishment, harmony, devotion, and motherhood), and also known as Ganapati or Vinayaka, Ganesha is one of the most revered deities in Hinduism. His teaching comes with 5 key lessons – ‘Duty is above all else’, ‘Nobody is more important than one’s parents’, ‘Forgiveness is the ultimate virtue’, ‘You should finish every task you take up’, and ‘Always stand up for your self-respect’.

Now although the RTP is going to be around 96% on this Play’n GO slot, Ganesha is known for being a one of the deities of fortune in the Hindu pantheon. In other words, he brings fortunes to his followers, so Play’n GO in theory can set the RTP to 1% and will still likely lose money on this slot, or will the powers of fortune work in the slot developer’s favour?

There are certainly plenty of features to bring wins your way, so let’s hope Ganesha is on your side. Look out for the ‘Wild Prize’ feature paid out when a wild symbol lands in one of the randomly activated golden reels. Wild prizes pay 5000, 500x, 25x, or 10x your bet. The wild is also a combination, paying out when 3, 4, or 5 lands on a pay line.

Ganesh himself is the scatter symbol and the key to unlocking multipliers of 5x, 10x, or 50x your spin bet when 3, 4, or 5 lands on the reels. Once your multiplier is paid, you get to choose from 5 free spins bonus round offers low to high volatility/variance options. For example, 20 free spins with 8 mystery symbols, 8 free spins with 48 mystery symbols, or just click on the 6th free spins option and let Ganesha choose one of the 5 free spins options for you.

Combination Spin Bet Multipliers: Symbols pay using the 243-ways-to-win no pay line adjacent reels combination mechanic. You can line up 3, 4, or 4 on a pay line. Red Elephant (1x, 2x, 10x), Golden Lion (0.5x, 1.2x, 6x), Blue Bird (0.4x, 0.8x, 0.4x), Green Serpent (0.3, 0.5, 2x), Rat (0.3, 0.5, 0.3), A or K (0.2x, 0.4x, 0.8x), Q, J or 10 (0.1x, 0.2x, 0.4x).

Karen Maneater (NoLimit City)

Karen Maneater is a new video slot release from NoLimit City. This video slot has 486 ways to win on 6 reels that have a 2-3-3-3-3 expanding row setup, and a theoretical RTP of 96%.

NoLimit City is well known for its creative ability to portray the obscure, and here we have another with, Karen Maneater, who has a hunger to cause a fuss, and she is starving right now. Karen has gone on a spree of destructive, ruining everything that we have all enjoyed for years. There are a few survivors though, and landing these on the reels will be of great value to you. The reels are about as chaotic as the world Karen has created.

The 6 reels can expand to create more ways to win, which will anger Karen more as she despises those who profit. xWays symbols can land on the centre reels, and will transform into the same symbol as each other. Get Karen to the dinner table, and your winnings could be enough to send Karen crazy with a max win of 11,757x the bet. There are 2 kinds of dinners that Karen can order, each will reward you with free spins and Xways, and it can be triggered at anytime with the buy bonus.

Mayhem (Red Tiger Gaming)

Themed on a chaotic world and an anarchistic Cash Queen, the Mayhem video slot from Red Tiger gaming really lives up to its name. The Cash Queen consistently throws the 5×3 reels into chaos and always has something special up her sleeves as you hunt for payouts on the 20 paylines available. As a 1×3 wild symbol that lands on the middle reel, she will substitute for all symbols while also handing out respins whenever she creates a winning combination. Each new matching symbol earns another respin. With the help of her chaotic mind, you might just land the top 1,000x payout on this high variance slot!

Moreover, trigger the 10 free spins available by landing 3 anarchy scatter symbols and this is where Mayhem really gets crazy. The Cash Queen is locked in the middle reel and will once again provide her ‘Wild’ and ‘Respin’ powers on every spin, but this time, each consecutive matching symbol that lands from the respins will increase the multiplier by up to a maximum of 10x!

In true Red Tiger Gaming style, Mayhem looks and plays amazingly. The graphics, animations, and soundtrack really are of the highest order. You have to love the theme too, as the lead character is reminiscent of Harley Quinn. As for the symbols on the reels, expect grenades, helmets, and the Queen’s favourite of all, the Dollar sign! The RTP of 95.71% is on the low side, but it does feel that you spin in wins on a regular basis. To learn more about the game and even play a free demo, click here.
