As sad as it might be, it is time to face the fact that summer is officially over (unless you are reading this article from the Land Down Under). And what would be a better way to start the fall season than a detailed article where we examine the hottest game releases of the coming months?
Bear in mind that there is no definite way to measure what online slot will be the most popular. But we have chosen games that have a) created a buzz b) come with exciting features and c) really fit the season we are currently experiencing. So without further ado, let’s dive in.
NetEnt - Superstars (October 27th)
There is no denying that one of the most intriguing game releases is definitely NetEnt’s Superstars that features characters from their most popular games. It truly is the NBA All-Star Game of the online casino world and we have absolutely booked the court side seats. The game is launched on 27th of October so we do not need to wait long.
So as we mentioned, the game features well-known characters such as Gonzo, Finn, Starburst, Lady Pig and Space Wars Brute. It is safe to say that visually this game will be spectacular - and it will definitely pack a lot of nostalgia.
Superstars has a 98,96% RTP, medium/high volatility and countless exciting special features: Diamond Scatters, Wilds, Free Spins and a special Bonus Game. You will find more details from our Superstars game review.
Wazdan - 9 Burning Stars (September 7th)
Lately we have become a bit obsessed with Wazdan games. It is a miracle how they can pack so much action into their slots - and 9 Burning Stars is no exception. This new game will take on a journey through the starts and hopefully big wins. And speaking of wins: the maximin win at 9 Burning Stars is 1500x your bet!
The game comes with 3x3 design and it continues with the retro style Wazdan has going on. It is very clear that 9 Burning Stars does in fact feature burning starts because the background is literally on fire. Overall the design team has done a good job!
Let’s look into the technical side of 9 Burning Stars. The game has a 96,12% RTP and the minimum bet is $0,10. The slot comes with many thrilling features but our absolutely favorite is the Hold the Jackpot bonus game that features four different jackpots: Grand, Major, Minor and Mini.
Quickspin - Spinions Game Day (October 4th)
There are multiple reasons why Opinions Game Day has earned its spot on this list. Let’s start with the obvious. FIFA World Cup will kick off on 20th of November and it’s clear that Quickspin has created this game in honor of this event (love it). Secondly, Spinions are extremely popular characters among players and we have seen them have a beach party and celebrate Christmas - and now it is time to move on to the football pitch.
Quickspin describes this slot as their ”most sticky game to date” and we all know what that means! You can expect passing wilds, re-spins and multipliers not to mention the intriguing Game Day Free Spins bonus game that starts with 10 FS.
Spinions Game Day is a 3x5 slot that features 25 pay lines. As most Quickspin slots, it comes with three RTP models: 87%, 94% and 96%. It is a medium volatility game.
Elk Studios - Dropz (October 4th)
It seems that 4th of October will be a busy day for new games because Elk Studios will also launch their latest slot: Dropz. The theme is completely different because this game will transfer players straight to Candyland where tasty treats await. So it is safe to say that this slot is pretty sweet (it just had to be said).
What intrigues us the most is the patented X-iter™ feature that Elk Studios introduced a while back. This feature allows you to jump right into action with 5 different game modes that guarantee you a direct passage to e.g. free spins and bonus games.
Dropz has six reels and six rows so the design is a bit different to their ”normal” games. The slot comes with Free Dropz bonus game, multipliers, locked wilds and expanding rows so there is plenty of action. It kind of reminds us of Candy Crush but with real wins (up to 25,000x your bet).
Red Tiger Gaming - Gonzita’s Quest (September 22th)
Gonzo is probably one of the best known slot characters in the world. But now, he needs to share the stage because there is a new conquistadora in town: Gonzita. This might be the game that we anticipate the most because we absolutely love Gonzo’s Quest. The basic principle stays the same: a fearless explorer goes into the depth of the jungle to discover valuable treasures but this time we are lead with a new heroine.
Gonzita’s Quest is a high volatility slot comes with a 5x3 setting. There are 20 pay lines and the game features the well-known waterfall feature (also known as avalanche feature). It means that after each win, the winning symbols will disappear and new ones fall from the sky. So you can achieve more than one win during one spin.
The game of course has a bonus game that comes with free spins and stone, gold and diamond slabs that can reward players with multipliers. The maximum win is a whopping 2,580x your bet size.
