New Casino Games Week 5 July 2021

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at what has been released in the final week of July! We can promise that those listed below will give you plenty of entertainment when you load them up and give them a whirl.

9 Blazing Diamonds WowPot (SpinPlay Games/Microgaming)

To kick things off, we might as well start with one of the biggest releases this month! Becoming the 7th title on the hugely lucrative WowPot progressive jackpot network, this video slot could literally net you payouts of €10 million+! 9 Blazing Diamonds WowPot was developed by SpinPlay Games, an independent studio that develops games for release at all Microgaming casinos. Don’t let the classic theme fool you, as this 25-payline video could roll in the Mini, Minor, Major, or even the WowPot progressive jackpots. The latter has already created many multi-millionaires, and you might just become the next. In fact, every winner of the WowPot jackpot is guaranteed at least €2 million, as that is how much Microgaming seeds the jackpot with whenever a new winner has scooped the previous amount.

The reels are full of classic symbols such as bells, cherries, bars, and flaming 7’s, however, it is the Blazing Diamonds and Blazing Wheel symbols you really want landing on them. Blazing Diamonds will give you random cash prizes of up to 2500x your stake if you land three or more. As for the Blazing Wheel symbols, three of these will either give you free spins with a 4x multiplier attached, or a chance at winning one of the four progressive jackpots!

Slot Specs: The biggest non-progressive payout on this enthralling slot is 10,000x your stake. This is acheivable by triggering the free spins which have a 4x multiplier applied. As for the RTP, this is set at 93.30% due to the progressive jackpot, and the variance is considered medium to high. You can spin the wheels for between 0.25 and 25.00.

Secrets of Sherwood (EGT)

We all know the story of the mythical Robin Hood, a man that set out to rob from the rich to give to the poor! Well, EGT has given us another Robin Hood themed video slot (there’s a few out there!) and this one is called Secrets of Sherwood. In terms of the graphics, this slot will not win any awards, but it is the bonus features on this 5-reel, 30-payline slot that will set your pulse racing. In particular, a free spins round that features stacked scatters and wilds is likely to bring you some substantial payouts, while a double-up feature gives you the chance to increase your payline wins when you land them. Give it a try, Sherwood forest might just allow you to get rich along with the poor!

Slot Specs: Secrets of Sherwood offers an average RTP of 96.26%, a max payout of 1,000x your stake, and a low-medium variance. Symbols pay from left to right and the scatters land on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reels.

Odin: Protector of the Realms (Play’n GO)

Play’n Go loves to create slots themed on Norse mythology, and they are at it once again with the release of Odin: protector of the Realms, a follow up to the much-lauded Ring of Odin video slot. You join Odin on his quest to protect the city of Asgard and must harness his magical powers. At first glance, you might think this is not even a video slot. Instead of reels, you’re greeted with a hexagon grid that has 37 symbol positions. Wins are created using the Cluster Pays reel mechanic, which means you’re rewarded whenever you land clusters of matching symbols. The winning symbols then fall away which allows new symbols to fall into their place. of course, this means you can create further wins from a single spin.

To add to the fun, Odin’s powers trigger randomly which means you could get the Wisdom, Power, or Glory magical features on your spins. Those powers could see wilds added, symbols removed to help create cascading wins or upgrading symbols to higher values.

Slot Specs: Odin: Protector of the Reels uses a cluster pays and cascading symbols reel mechanic which could lead to plenty of winning sequences. The top payout is 5,000x your stake, can wager between 0.20 and 100.00 per spin, and the RTP and volotilty is 96.2% and medium, respectively.

Wild Drops (Betsoft)

Another slot that does things a little differently, is the excellent Wild Drops from Betsoft. The action takes place on a 5×8 grid that contains 16-paylines. Creating wins on this pays-both-ways video slot involves landing at least three matching symbols horizontally along a payline. Winning symbols disappear which allows those above to fall into place and possibly create further wins. As you spin, you might unearth golden coins which are collected until you have 5. Once achieved, you get 5 free spins that feature a fully wild central reel! On any spin, if you manage to clear the board completely, you get a 5x multiplier added to your base win.

Slot Specs: Wild Drops has a decent RTP of 96.11%, a high variance, and allows bets of between 0.10 and 20.00 per spin. Get lucky enough, and you might just win yourself the top payout of 4,400x your stake!

Epic Ape II Jackpot Blitz (Playtech)

Who doesn’t love a good sequel? Epic Ape II Jackpot Blitz, is the sequel to, yes you guessed it, Epic Ape. The original was released three years ago and quickly became a popular video slot in the Playtech portfolio. Fast forward to today, and the new Epic Ape II comes with plenty of additional features, improved graphics, and wait for it, a progressive jackpot! It also has 4,096 ways to win, which means no paylines to worry about. As for the features, you can trigger the Epic Free Spins round or the Epic Gold mini-game. Plus, on any spin, an Epic Trigger Modifier can place two scatters on your reels. Your main aim will be to win the Mini, Minor, Major, or Blitz jackpots. It will trigger randomly and to determine which jackpot you win, you’re taken to a new screen. here, you continue picking diamonds until you find three matching symbols of one of the jackpots.

Slot Specs: Aside from the Blitz progressive jackpots, the biggest win possible on this slot is 10,000x your stake. As for the RTP, this is listed at 95.97%, but as there is a jackpot contribution of 0.99%, this actually makes the slots RTP 94.98%. The betting range on this high variance slot is between 0.20 and 200.00.

There Were More Too!

As you can see, there is a ton of new casino content released on a weekly basis. To the right, you will see another batch of new games that were released in the past week. In our opinion, Golden Gorgon by Yggdrasil is the pick of the bunch. This highly volatile slot takes you on an adventure to ancient Greece, where you face up to the terrifying Golden Gorgon! It offers an RTP of 96%, 25 paylines, and gives you the chance to trigger respins and multipliers that could reward you with up to 2,502x your bet!

We do recommend that you try each of them out though, opinions are just that after all. Everybody has them, and yours might just differ from ours! All of them offer something different, and some of them might just bring you the hefty payouts you’re looking for.

Wait, there’s more: Thai Hi Lo Deluxe (Gameplay Interactive), 15 Wonders of the Trident Swift Hits (Peer Fiction), Bar-X Triple Play Megaways (Storm Gaming), Neptune’s Harem (Gong Gaming), and The Wild Show (Dragon Gaming), all hit the online casinos this week!
