If you are looking for something completely new to play this month while visiting an online casino, here is our look at the best games for you to enjoy.

Two Playtech Titles Set the Standard in August

brian laraPlaytech have not one, but two titles for their players to enjoy in August. One looks set to be very popular and that is Brian Lara, a slot game focusing on the West Indian cricketing legend, a player who also released a console game many years ago, and for that reason, it will certainly catch the eye of fans.

Anyone who likes cricket will know of Lara, regarded as one of the very best batsmen of all time. His name will sell this game alone, and it is part of a series based around legends from sport that Playtech have created.

As for the game itself, the five reels have 1024 different ways for a player to win, and best of all, there is a progressive jackpot to aim for. Three jackpots are available in total, a daily jackpot, a weekly jackpot and the big one, which is called the sporting legends jackpot. This begins at $100,000 and grows as more people play the game, so there is a life-changing sum of money up for grabs here.

This is a cartoon style game, with various cricket elements making up some of the symbols, including bats, helmets and Lara himself. Obviously, any sports fans who are interested in casino gaming are going to be interested here, especially those who like cricket and want to play cricket games.

With the crossover of players between sports betting and casino gaming, sport is always a very popular theme for those looking to keep enjoying sport but move onto a different style of gaming. With that in mind, expect this game to be very popular, especially as this is a big year for cricket and many will be watching, with big international games and a World Cup to come.

Jurassic Island Sequel from Playtech Finally Lands

jurassic islandBack in 2014, Playtech released Jurassic Island and the dinosaur-themed slot received a lot of praise for its gaming. Now, the game is back and one of the big areas where Playtech have improved it for fans is with the number of pay lines on offer. This has risen from just 25 up to 1024, offering a completely different style of gaming.

Another big feature is the top jackpot on offer. This stands at 23,290x your unit stake, another big positive here, especially for those who specifically lookout for big jackpots they can aim for. Across the five reels, as mentioned there are 1024 win lines, and the RTP for this game stands at 95.70%, so it is tailored towards the big jackpot on offer, rather than very regular wins.

To further show off the theme of this game, a dinosaur egg is the wild symbol, this can replace any others on the board to help you create winning lines. Elsewhere, the other to look out for is the scatter, which is a dinosaur nest. This takes you into the wild trail feature, although there are only two possible spots for this to be activated, the bottom two symbols on the 5th reel, so it is not an easy game to access.

Those who love the world of dinosaurs are going to really love what Playtech have done with the theme. There are a handful of different dinosaurs that are used as symbols in the game, and the storyline means that this slot is set in a time when dinosaurs still roamed the world.

If you are looking for something new and you love dinosaurs, this is certainly a game to look out for. There will be some who played on the original game, and if you are one of those and liked it, this game is an upgraded and expanded version of that. The jackpot on offer is very good, there are more ways to win, and the graphics have been updated. All in all, if you like animal themed games, especially dinosaurs, make sure you look out for Playtech releasing Jurassic Island 2 into your online casino in August, the game is sure to be a big hit.

Pragmatic Play are releasing Chilli Heat Megaways this month, a game that was originally released as a standard game back in 2018 and has now been re-released to feature the Megaways gaming engine. This will no doubt be a popular move, many players love Megaways and will specifically look for this type of game inside their casino.

The reels on this type of gaming can expand, offering multiple more win lines for you to try and succeed on. The most available in this game is higher than the standard Megaways number, with Chilli Heat there are up to 200,704 win line potentially available on the game.

As is standard on this type of game, you have six reels to focus on, the RTP for the game can vary, but the highest on offer is 96.50% which is strong. If you have played the original version of Chilli Heat then you will recognise everything that is on the game, as there have not been any design changes. The same board layout is in place, the symbols are the same and perhaps the only difference is that the symbols have been updated, so they look a little clearer and sharper.

Look out for the re-spin feature, which you can activate by hitting six money symbols in the same round. Not only do you need to look out for these but also look out for their monetary value, as this will be carried forward to the re-spin feature, and these are the amounts you can win.

If you love Megaways, which many players do, then this game gives you a new title, a theme that has been proven to work, and plenty more to enjoy this summer.

Yggdrasil Offer Big Jackpot with Jambo Cash

This game has a big jackpot, the highlight of the title and one that offer users the chance to win 12,056x your unit stake, so something that is certainly worth playing for. There are many players who look out for big fixed jackpots, if you are one of those then this is a game to add to your list of those you want to discover over the course of the month.

The game has a theme that is based around the African Savanna, so expect to see a range of animals and a great desert theme that the game is played on. Not only do we have a great jackpot here, but the RTP on offer is very strong, set at 96.74%.

You will see a gaming board of 6×4 when you start playing, and the total number of pay lines is 4096, so there is a lot to cover as a player. Wilds play a big part in this game because these are multiplier wilds, so not only do they give you a better chance of stringing together winning lines, but they also increase your potential winnings.

Look out for a bonus feature too, which is activated when the scatter symbols are on reels 1, 3 and 5. This will then replace the low-value symbols with instant prize symbols, and then several free spins are given to you in which you can try to win the biggest prize possible from the reel.

This theme is a very common one, so many players will already know and love this type of game. If you are one of them then this version of the African Savanna game, Jambo Cash, offers you the chance to play for a great jackpot on a slot that looks great.
