This is no normal month of May as the current situation is changing the lives of millions of people around the world. One of the many areas this has affected is the sporting world, with very few leagues and competitions able to play at the moment.
That has left many searching for things to bet on, those looking to bet are having to look at other opportunities. Those include playing slots, and the new games that have appeared this month, as well as those coming up in May, are going to receive additional focus and attention because of this.
For those looking to find new slot games for May, here is our rundown of the biggest releases for the month.
Microgaming to Release Football Themed Slot
The 2020 European Championships were expected to take place across June and July this summer, so the release of All Win FC was probably aimed with those in mind. However, a complete lack of football can also work in the favour of this slot, giving fans of the game something familiar to play and remind themselves of the beautiful game.
This slot from Microgaming is very simple and easy to understand, with 5×3 reels and just 10 pay lines for players to focus on. Newcomers to slot gaming are going to feel comfortable tackling this one and if you are looking for a simple game and you are a football fan this newcomer is designed exactly for you.
The maximum payout on the game will be set at 500x your unit stake, while the RTP% is a solid 96.12%.
There are two symbols to look out for, both of which will be very familiar to football fans. The first is a gold trophy, this can appear on reels two, three or four and this acts as the wild symbol. It can substitute any symbol in the game to provide you with winning lines, a great feature that we see in many slot games for players to take advantage of.
The second is a football, which is the scatter symbol. Get three, four or five of these to trigger free spins, where you will get 12, and an increase in your payout which can be anything from 2x to 50x the payout, potentially giving you a big win from one spin.
Expect to see football fans, flags and the royal cards on this slot to round off the symbols on offer, and if you are missing football and looking to replace betting on that, this slot could be the one for you.
Double Release in May from Red Tiger Gaming
Red Tiger Gaming are bringing not one game, but two for us this coming month. They are releasing 4Squad, which is based on a Superhero theme and Atlantic, based on the underwater city of Atlantis.
4Squad is the first game we will look at, one that has been created by Red Tiger to go up against other slot games from brands such as DC Comics and Marvel. The actual Superheroes this game is based on will not be familiar to you, but they have been created with different superpowers for this game and the story behind it.
This is a big game, with 7×6 reels on the page, so plenty of chances to win. The RTP% for the game is 95.72% which is average for games of this type. This is more designed for those who like games with features and other things to look out for, rather than high chances of winning big money.
The cluster pays system is used here across the 42 different symbols, giving you more chances to win. The power fist symbol is what you want to look out for if you are aiming for a big win, this pays 50x for a cluster.
The main feature of this game is above the reels. Look out for these meters filling up, and when they do you can expect some great action. Green will spin the reels and give you only high valued symbols, blue transforms some symbols into wilds, the red burst clones symbols and lastly, the yellow gives you a multiplier of anything up to 10x.
If you like games with action and lots of features, this will be one for you.
The second game from Red Tiger is Atlantis, based on the underwater world of the city of Atlantis. The game features many symbols that are associated with Atlantis and provide those who are interested in this theme with a very recognisable game to play.
There are a total of 30 pay lines on this game, with 5×4 reels to play on. The RTP% is 95.77%, which is average for a game of this type, you are certainly not getting a bad deal here. The jackpot is 5000x your unit stake, which is a great number to aim for and this is a slot that could help you win big.
The game offers a variety of different features including cascading reels, wilds, multipliers, scatters, gold spins and more. This gives you something to look out for, and there will be plenty of excitement while playing.
NetEnt Release Gods Of Gold Infinireels
A unique game is on its way from NetEnt in May and that is Gods of Gold Infinireels. This is a game that has unlimited pay lines, depending on how the game is going. There is also a 5000x jackpot on offer here too, which is great to see, and a RTP% of 96.12%.
What we see here is a brand new mechanic that may take the slot world by storm in years to come, here we are seeing it in its infancy. There are three rows of three reels, to begin with, and a total of 27 ways to win.
Then the infinireels feature kicks in, which adds more reels and an infinite number of ways in which you can win. Alongside this very different way of playing, you also have the chance to benefit from wilds, re-spins and free spins while playing this game, which shows just how many features are on offer here.
This is a game that is more aimed at experienced players who are looking for something new, rather than new players looking to find a way into slot gaming. If you are an experienced player, then this is certainly a game worth checking out when it is released in May.
We could be seeing the start of something special and a new way to game with the infinireels mechanism that is in place, this could turn out to be huge in a few years.
With many games offering much of the same when they are released, this one takes a different approach and tries to offer something completely new. Infinireels will take some understanding and adjusting from players, this isn’t a game that new players will pick up easy but it can bring a much-wanted challenge for experienced slot gamers, and that is why this could prove to be the most popular new game of the month in May.
