As we begin a new year, this is always a very exciting and important time for slot players, casino operators and game providers. Everyone is looking for a fresh new start, and this often results in us seeing a number of new games released that have been held onto until the start of this new year, to try and give them exposure away from Christmas and the festive slots we see released.
This is a great time for players to evaluate their gaming and look at the options in front of them, to see if it is the time to start looking for new slots to play. If you are one of these players then here is a look at the latest releases and the first batch of games that have been made available in 2020, here is what to look out for in the first month of the year.
Red Tiger Gaming and NetEnt Combine for New Release
Back in September, it was announced that NetEnt had bought Red Tiger Gaming and that sparked a lot of discussion about what the future held for both companies, even though it was announced that Red Tiger Gaming would remain a separate company. However, we could be seeing here exactly what they are going to do for us, and that is to combine their individual expertise to bring us fantastic games, just like this one we have here.
Piggy Riches Megaways uses the megaways style of gaming that Red Tiger has been so successful with and combined it with a popular NetEnt release, Piggy Riches. This has brought us this exciting game that is sure to attract many players, with 117,649 different gaming lines that you can win off.
For those who like what NetEnt produce and know the Piggy Riches game, this is the perfect way to begin playing Red Tiger Gaming titles as you have the familiar feel of a game you know, with their unique gaming style. Similarly, for those who like Red Tiger Gaming but want to see what NetEnt offer, this is the game for you.
This combined release comes right at the start of the new year, and it could well be the first of many joint titles that these two offer up for casino players in 2020, which is an exciting prospect, to say the least.
Blueprint Gaming Release Two Vegas Millions Titles
Blueprint Gaming are another company to hit the ground running in 2020 and they have given us two releases under their Vegas Millions gaming banner. These two games are Genie Jackpots and Alien Antics, two regular games that have the Vegas Millions progressive jackpots available for players, and these offer the opportunity to win a huge prize.
Genie Jackpots has the regular five reels and 20 pay lines setup, giving this slot a classic feel which will help new players adapt to it. As you would expect from a game named Genie Jackpots, look out for genie’s, flying carpets and other related items as symbols which all help the theme work well here.
Alien Antics is a completely different type of slot game, which may look a little confusing to players at first. It offers cluster payouts on the 8×8 reel board, some will have seen this type of game before while it may be a first for some players who have kept to regular standard slots in the past. Other than the layout, the look of this slot is very simple and the symbols are all different alien faces which add a fun and cartoon-style element to this game.
When it comes to both titles, there are the regular five Vegas Millions progressive jackpots available to win. These are Super, Mega, Major, Royal and Vegas, getting bigger as they are named, with the Vegas jackpot being the biggest of them all, offering a life-changing amount of money to those lucky enough to land it.
Those looking to try out or find new progressive jackpot games in 2020 have two great options from Blueprint Gaming here. For those looking for traditional and simple casino play, they have Genie Jackpots available, while those looking for something different can try the 8×8 board and cluster pay-lines on Alien Antics.

This can be via gaming, with many people liking the simple and easy-to-play nature of slots meaning they turn to them. There are some slot games which offer complex gaming, either because of the game type, the number of reels and pay lines or something else, but we do have a number of simple games which are perfect for January.
A new game, exactly in this mould, comes from BetSoft this month, and it looks to be the perfect way to ease those January blues. Super Sweets is as simple as gaming gets, it has a nice fun theme to play along with, and players will find themselves calm, relaxed and not mentally challenged when they play this title.

Push Gaming Release Slot Based on Nursery Rhyme
It is fair to say that we don’t see too many slot games based on nursery rhymes but that is exactly what Push Gaming have for us to kickstart their offering in 2020. They have created the game Humpty Dumpty, based on a classic children’s song and the name alone will attract people to play this game, regardless of the gameplay on offer.
However, those that do step inside will see that the gameplay is also good here. The game has 5×3 simple reels to play on, 25 pay lines and symbols that all relate to the nursery rhyme, including kings men and horses.
This game takes a light-hearted and fun approach to slot gaming, and will no doubt bring back memories for a lot of people. January is a time when people don’t want too much, they just want to relax and have fun, and this is exactly what this game offers people the chance to do.
