Top 5 Video Slot Releases – Week 33 August 2022 new Casino Games

Right, with all that out of the way, let’s get into our latest new casino games report. Below, you will find reviews of 5 of the best new slot titles to hit the online casinos. You will find titles from Pragmatic Play, Quickspin, Play’n GO, and more! Then, at the end of this article, we have compiled a full list of each of the new casino games launched last week!

  • Maneki 88 Gold (BGaming)

Maneki 88 Gold is the latest video slot release from BGaming. We have given a full review of this title during the week, but wanted to remind you of how good this slot is. This exciting new slot is themed on the Japanese talisman of luck Maneki Neko, a cute-looking cat that is said to bring you luck and fortune. Of course, playing a video slot, you will hope that this talisman really does bring fortune your way!

Before spinning, choose how many high-paying symbols you want to turn into Golden Symbols. While doing so increases your spin bet, you also increase the payout you receive whenever you land these symbols in a winning combination. Once ready, you can start spinning the reels hoping to land big wins or trigger some of the other bonus features.

The latter includes collecting enough gold coins to trigger the jackpot game. You need to collect 12 in total so that the next coin activates a bonus game that will award you one of the Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand fixed jackpots. The other main feature is a free spins round that could give you up to 300 free spins of the reels.

To trigger that feature, you must land 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere in view. You receive 10 free spins initially but can trigger up to 290 at a rate of 10 a time whenever you land another 3+ scatter symbols. Plus, during this feature, there are no low-paying symbols on the reels! The final feature is the Buy Bonus feature. This lets you get straight into the free spins round without having to wait. It does, of course, cost you a fair bit for that pleasure. You can choose to buy in with 1 – 5 golden symbols, with the cost increasing the more you want to have.

Combination Wins Bet Multipliers: Scatter symbol pays 50x for a 5-symbol combination while high-paying symbols pay more when golden symbols (Tiger 11.3x, Panda 5.68x, Bird 4.54x, Turtle 2.84x, Carp 1.13x). Low-paying symbols all pay 0.56x for a 5-symbol combo.

  • Black Bull (Pragmatic Play)

Pragmatic Play loves developing slots featured on wild animals as you will know from titles including Wolf Gold, Gorilla Mahem, and the Ultimate 5. However, could the latest, Black Bull, run the rule over each of those?

Black Bull is a 5-reel, 4-row, and 20 payline slot that features a money collect mechanic that has an added twist. Money symbols with a value of between 0.5x and 50x the bet can land on any given spin. Alone they mean nothing, but land a wild symbol on the same spin and it will collect all those cash values and pay you out. If you land two or three wilds, you receive those payments multiple times.

That money collect feature is even more lucrative during the free spins round. To trigger free spins, you need to land at least 6 of those money symbols on a single spin. You receive 6 free spins for 6-11 symbols, 8 for 12-17, or 10 for 18-20.

The values of all money symbols are added together and collected as the starting value of the free spins. A progressive value, it will increase during the feature whenever you land additional money symbols. Then each time a wild symbol lands on the reels, you get paid that value. As you can imagine, landing numerous wild symbols will ensure that you end the feature with a good cash haul! Also, during this feature, each time you land 6 or more money symbols, you earn an additional 2 free spins.

That free spins feature and the progressive money collect mechanic is, without doubt, the main selling point of the Black Bull slot from Pragmatic Play. You even have the option of buying that feature at a cost of 75x your desired stake.

Combination Wins Bet Multipliers: Wins payout when you land at least 3 and as many as 5 matching symbols on an active payline. The payouts for 5-symbol combinations are Black Bull (25x), Wolf (10x), Eagle (7.5x), Buffalo (4x), Lizard (4x), A, K, Q, J (2x).

The Quickspin Sticky Bandits series continues its franchise with yet another slot added to the collection. Sticky Bandits, Stick Bandits Wild Return and Stick Bandits 3 Most Wanted to have all proven popular and so the fourth version of the slot is now in action over 5×3 reels with 10 pay lines, and a 96% RTP for MGA, Curacao and UKGC jurisdictions.

Set in the Old West, you’ll join Tex Tallonis once again. Once the deputy of the town, Tex is back on a revenge quest for justice in pursuit of his enemies that thought they had left him for dead. He’s still alive and is exacting his revenge on reels, while in the process, you could net up to 17,000x your spin bet.

There are 5 different wilds spread reel-by-reel. They will substitute regular symbols, while 3, 4 or 5 wilds anywhere in view will trigger the ‘Revenge Free Spins Bonus’ game with 10, 12 or 14 free spins, respectfully. During the bonus, all wilds on the reels will enter the round as sticky and any new ones that hit the reels will stick in position, plus add an additional free spin.

Sticky Bandits Trail of Blood Slot Features

  • 5×3 Reels with 10 Paylines
  • 96% Theoretical RTP
  • High Variance/Volatility
  • x5 Wild Symbols
  • Revenge Free Spins Bonus
  • Sticky Wilds (Free Spins)
  • Additional Free Spins
  • x2 Buy Bonus Options
  • Min-Max Bets 0.20-100.00
  • Max Win 17,000x
  • Forge of Fortunes (Play’n GO)

Mine your way to gold in the deep caverns of the Forge of Fortunes respins special video slot title created by the Play’n GO software provider. And if you can Forge the biggest gold bar, you are in a 2,500x windfall on your spin bet. The slot is played on a unique 1 reel set up with 3 symbols making this a rare 1×3 slot title.

The key symbol on Forge of Fortunes is the golden nugget. Each time you line up 3 on the pay line, this will trigger the re-spin game where your gold fortune lays in wait. The only other symbol on the reel is the ‘Slag’, but it is a blank symbol that blocks the gold nuggets from lining up.

When the respin feature begins, you effectively have 1 free spin to forge gold bars. Don’t worry because the reels have more gold nuggets than slag during the free spins game. Or at least it felt that way when I was playing – from what I can see, reels 1 and 2 always have gold nuggets for free spins, while reel 3 could produce coal/slag on any given spin.

Each time you land 3 gold nuggets after a respin, the slot will forge a new gold bar, and your multiplier level will increase. However, if Slag lands, the forging of the gold bar will fail, and you will fall back by 1 multiplier level.

There is a ‘Safe Runners’ feature that is essentially an extra life. If you get to activate this feature, the gold ramp will hold in place and your multiplier level will not move back one place when you land coal on the third reel. As for the minimum payout for the respins game, this is 2x your spin bet.

Multiplier Levels: Each time you forge a new gold bar, the multiplier level rises. Levels are 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 30x, 50x, 75x, 100x, 200x, 500x, 1,000x and finally 2,500x your bet. I reached 30x twice as my highest score and a few 8x and 15x as well as some 2x and 3x wins.

  • TNT Tumble Dream Drop (Relax Gaming)

Relax Gaming released TNT Tumble Dream Drop last week, making it the fifth title on its Dream Drop progressive jackpot network. This title not only gives you a chance to win a progressive jackpot that can climb to as high as €10 million but also a base game top prize of 10,000x your stake.

TNT Tumble is played on a 5×7 grid that utilises the cluster pays mechanic and is essentially an upgraded version of the original TNT Tumble slot. When you hit the spin button, you will notice four rows of active symbols and a further three rows that contain dark stones. Among those dark stones, you will see between 0 and 3 TNT symbols on any given spin. The aim of the base game is to destroy those dark symbols so that you trigger the game’s free spins feature.

Those dark symbols get destroyed when you complete winning combinations in adjacent positions. When these dark symbols get destroyed the symbols above fall into the vacant positions. New symbols then drop onto the reels to provide a chance for additional wins.

Wild Drill symbols substitute for all paying symbols and will continue to drop down as the dark symbols are destroyed. These wilds can bring in multiple wins from a single spin. Once all the dark symbols are destroyed you trigger free spins. You get to choose from 3 different types of free spin rounds. You can opt for 6 spins with multiplier stones, extra spins stones, or a combination of the two.

Finally, there is the Dream Drop jackpot feature that can trigger on any spin. During this feature, you will win one of the five jackpots. Those are the Rapid, Midi, Maxi, Major, or Mega jackpots.

Multiplier Levels: You land wins for clusters of 3 or more matching symbols with the best payouts coming from clusters of 15 or more. Payouts for 15+ combinations are Wild Symbols (50x), Red Gem (15x), Yellow Gem (10x), Green Gems (7x), Blue Gems (6x), Bronze Gem (5x), and Silver Gem (4x).
