We move into the second month of 2021 and just like January, this looks to be a very busy month for slot releases. Many of the big names have a title coming out this month, some have multiple titles for us to enjoy.
As a new player, the new year always brings excitement about what is around the corner. New games will have been discovered by players during January and here is what you can expect to find in the month of February.
Pragmatic Play Double Release Headlines February New Releases
Pragmatic Play have certainly been busy at the start of 2021, and they have two games to look forward to in February. This company continues to put a lot of new material onto the market and if you are looking for a developer to follow this year, Pragmatic Play may be the one.
Gates of Olympus
We have seen many slot titles use the theme of Ancient Greece to create an exceptional slot experience and this one based on the gods of Ancient Greece is certainly another to add to the list. The game has five reels and 20 pay lines, so it is not too complex for any new players who are looking for a slot starting point. The max win here is 5,000 your stake, so certainly big enough to get people excited and the RTP is 96.50%, so you know you will get a good deal.
The simplicity of this game doesn’t mean that it isn’t exciting though, Pragmatic Play have added plenty of different features to ensure this is a game that you love to play. Look out for scatters which help you create lines, free spins, multipliers to increase your wins and tumbling reels which adds a new element and could give you back to back big wins if the reels fall right for you.
There are three main boxes that a slot game needs to tick, it needs to be accessible for newcomers, packed with cool features and have an exciting theme that will keep dragging players back to play. The Gates of Olympus slot has covered all three here, and more, so don’t be surprised to see it turn out to be one of the most popular Pragmatic Play titles released this year.
Fruit Themed Joker King Released by Pragmatic Play
The second Pragmatic Play release for the month that we are looking at is Joker King. This game combines state of the art graphics and a really modern feel with an old-style theme that users new and old are going to love.
The fruit theme has been used by many over the years, but some of the best fruit-themed slots are the older ones and these often look tired and dated compared to new releases. Step forward Joker King, which combines the great gameplay we see on those old classics with a modern design, great colours and a brilliant feel to the game throughout.
This is a simple six-reel game, with a total of 25 pay lines, an RTP of 96.50% and a nice jackpot to aim for which is 5000x your unit stake. This all put together gives you a very solid game to look at, and then the graphics and style does its work to really bring this to life.
The name Joker King is referenced with this being the wild symbol in the game, and it is an important symbol to look out for. When you collect wilds, they will turn another symbol so that all of those also turn into wilds, giving you the potential to have many of these on the reels, which is only going to add up to a big win.
The design of this game is brilliant, and it is all based around a theme that many people love and have played for many years. If you are one of those, and you want to keep playing fruit-themed slots but you are tired of the older looking versions, check out Joker King, which brings this theme right up to date for you to enjoy.
Microgaming Release Chicago Gold
If you are looking for a casino game with a very strong theme and set in a time where we see few slot games based then Chicago Gold will certainly take your eye. This release comes from Microgaming and while the standard gaming on this slot is something that many will be familiar with, the theme certainly isn’t.
The game is set in Chicago as the name suggests, and it is based on the Prohibition Era when Chicago was known for its lifestyle downtown. This mainly focused on crime, money and gangs controlling various areas of the city. They would all have their own clubs and bars where they would run their business from, and many feuds occurred over the years as a result of this.
Chicago Gold takes you into the heart of this era with the theme of this slot, perfect for those who are looking for something a little different to enjoy. In terms of the gameplay itself, you will see five reels here, a total of 45 pay lines, an RTP of 96% and a maximum jackpot to chase of 5000x your stake.
This gives players more than enough to aim for, and the feeling that you are getting a good deal when you place this, as well as a feeling you are playing something incredibly entertaining and different.
Look out for scatters while you are spinning the reels, these can land on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels in your game. Get these and you will have eight free spins to use, a simple and effective way to get a bonus here, look out for them and try to build your scatters together to get this.
If it’s something different, and a very interesting and complex theme you are looking for, Chicago Gold can certainly offer you that and it is released in February by Microgaming.
Bounty Belles Offers a Wild West Theme Twist
The wild west theme is one of the most popular and commonly seen slot themes out there. Many games have had a lot of success using this theme, but one of the downsides to that is there is a lack of options for those who are looking to create a new game with that theme.
Instead, those looking to do this need to work out a way in which they can make their version of the game stand out by changing something. This is exactly what iSoftBet have done with Bounty Belles, their version of a wild west themed slot.
The twist here is that the main characters in this game are all females. Expect to see all the usual wild west symbols on the game, such as guns, horseshoes, safes with cash, cowboy hats and more, but when it comes to the actual characters in the game, this is where you will see the change.
Free spins can be gained by landing three or more scatters, with anywhere between 10 and 15 given to players. This can be repeated once, so 30 free spins are on offer here at most. While in this game, you may be lucky enough to get the randomly inserted Deadman’s Draw bonus game. This gives you several cards which are shot at when these are shot they reveal a multiplier and you can add this to a spin to boost your winnings.
The game itself have an RTP of 95.99%, and a huge max payout of 10,877x your unit stake that you can try to win. The five reels are also home to a large number of winning lines, with 243 available, so plenty of chances for success.
The wild west is a common theme for slot gaming, but the difference here and the introduction of female characters certainly makes this game stand out from the crowd.
