A new month is here and that means a new batch of slot games are set for release, which players can enjoy now, and moving forward.
The month of March looks to be fairly quiet for slot games, but we have still found some that are sure to catch the attention of players, for a variety of reasons.
One title that stands out is Playtech’s Moscow Magic with a Russian theme. I guess Playtech would have chosen to realase this at a different time had they known what would happen between Russia and Ukraine! Here is a look at the best new slot games to be released in March.
Moscow Magic Joins the Playtech Grand Junction Series
This game is the third in the series from Playtech, which has been named Grand Junction. So far, we’ve seen steam trains and ancient travel as part of this travel-themed series, and now we head to Moscow, to take in the delights of this city, and a slot that features many characteristics of the area.
Grand Junction: Moscow Magic shows what visitors to the city can expect to find, with the symbols that are used in the game, such as a bear, Russian dolls, the Cossack man and many more, which all add a nice touch to the game.
In terms of the gameplay, the RTP is 96.51%, which is very strong, and there are five reels on the game, with a total of 50 pay lines for you to play on. The biggest prize on offer is the grand jackpot, which is a prize that is worth 2,000x your unit stake, so certainly something to aim for when you are playing.
The slot features a wild symbol, which can be used to replace other symbols on the board and help you to create winning lines. The towers from Red Square in Moscow is the symbol for this, and certainly one you need to look out for.
The feature of this game will give you the chance to take home one of the jackpot prizes on offer. To access, you need to find five steam train symbols across the reels, this takes you to the bonus game, which has two parts. The first allows you to win money, by adding cash and other symbols to the board for a total of nine free spins, where you can build up your pot.
During these nine spins, you need to look out for the train symbol again, as between three and six of these will take you to the final part of the bonus game. Here, you have one spin, with numbers on the board and the total of these numbers adds up to give you a score. Depending on this score, you will win one of the jackpots on offer, with the biggest jackpot requiring a big score to land it.
For anyone that has played the first two games in this series, the newest release, Moscow Magic, is certainly an upgrade, offering great gaming with a strong theme and excellent features to try and land. Those who haven’t played, but want to find a series, can expect more from Playtech over the coming months, so now may be a great time to jump on board, ahead of more releases.
Pragmatic Play Releases Simple Slot Clover Gold
One of the biggest markets that game developers fight over is games that are specifically designed to be simple, with likeable themes that will appeal to the masses. These are ideal for new gamers, and Pragmatic Play has added another game to that category, with the release of Clover Gold.
The game is very simple, and easy to understand, even if you are playing online slots for the first time. On top of that, the Irish theme is one of the most popular currently available, one that attracts a lot of players. With this, Pragmatic Play have hit the mark and brought a game that offers gamers the ideal starting point, from which they can progress in the future.
The game has simple 5×3 reels, with a total of 20 pay lines on the board, so enough for you to have many chances to win, but not too many to make the game confusing for newcomers. The RTP on the game is varied, depending on your casino, but can go as high as 96.54%, which is very impressive.
As for the jackpot on offer, it’s a big one, with the highest payout of 5,000x your unit stake. In terms of features, you definitely need to look out for the ‘collect’ symbol, which is a pot of gold. When you get this, combined with clover symbols on the board, you will collect the cash prize from the clover symbols. If you have multiple, you will collect them all, there is no limit.
There are many Irish games on the market, but what sets this one apart is the quality of the graphics and symbols in the game. Many of the Irish games currently available, have been around for many years, and this really looks like a big upgrade on those, so if you like Irish themed games, and want to check out a new one, this is certainly one to look at.
The market for creating new games, which are designed for new players, continues to be strong, and this title from Pragmatic Play looks to be a great addition to that.
Microgaming and All41 Studios Combine to Release Gold Collector
The final game to look at this month is a game that has seen a collaboration between two developers, Microgaming, one of the biggest names in the industry, and All41 Studios. They have come together to develop and release Gold Collector: Diamond Edition, which is a new version of the game Gold Collector, which was released in 2021 by Microgaming.
The diamond version of the game brings a diamond jackpot, the biggest available, and this stands at 5,000x your unit stake, which makes up most of the 5,200x biggest win available figure. On top of that, diamonds are also used for scatters here, so if you have played the original version of the game, you are going to see many differences between the two.
You will find 5×4 reels on the game, with a total of 50 pay lines and the RTP is also strong on the game, standing at 96.40%.
The game has a bonus feature that revolves around free spins and to claim these, you need to land scatters on reels 2-4. Get these and you will receive 10 free spins, and the way in which the board will play also changes.
In this part of the game, you will collect coins or diamonds, either boosting up your winnings or if you are getting diamonds, building up your chances of winning the big diamond jackpot. In an addition here, you can use plungers and dynamite sticks on the board to blow it up and give you more chance of winning, if you need it.
This is a complex game, but one that is likely to appeal to a broad range of players. If you are looking for something a little different, this game certainly matches that. There are also the players that have played the original version of Gold Collector, which was only released last year, so many will remember it, and be interested in this new version of the game.
