We are approaching the summer and that often means we see a large number of casino games released as providers look to satisfy the demand from their players.
This month looks to be a very good month for those who are looking to find new games to play, with plenty on offer.
Here we take a look at the very best games that are coming out this May and what they can offer you.
Double Release from Microgaming Headlines the Month
Microgaming will no doubt attract a lot of attention this month with two big games out for release during May. We all know Microgaming are one of the biggest providers out there, so plenty is expected when they release a game and here, we have two to look at.
Hyper Joker Offers Simple Summer Gaming
If you are looking for a simple game to play this summer when you are looking to relax, Hyper Joker from Microgaming may be the game for you. This is a very simple five-reel game, with only a small number of features to keep you entertained. If it’s something nice and easy to play you are looking for, this is the type of game you want.
The maximum payout here is certainly enough to get people interested, with a maximum payout on the free spins game being 7,500x your unit stake. The maximum on the regular game is still impressive at 2,500x your stake, so there is plenty to aim for here.
You will see the game has an RTP of 96.33%, with a total of 25 winning lines available for you to play. When it comes to features, look out for the star symbol which is the wild and can be used to form winning lines with other symbols. The scatter is the hyper joker symbol itself, another hugely important one and not only does this give you a prize, but you will also get free spins, which is where the biggest payouts can be found.
Depending on the number of hyper joker symbols you get, which can be anything from three to nine, you will receive a different win. This goes all the way up to 2,000x your stake, it is an instant prize with nothing attached to it. Then you get free spins, which come when this symbol is on the reels 2-4. Get three here and you will spin a wheel to reveal your free spins prize, which can be anything from 10 up to 30 free spins. These spins are played in the same way as the standard game, but with a multiplier of either 2x or 3x attached to it. This is how you can win the 7,500x your unit stake jackpot, by landing the big payout while being in the game with a 3x multiplier.
There is certainly enough here to keep you entertained and to enjoy your gaming, though at the same time, the game is simple with just a couple of small features for you to look out for. If you are looking for a game to relax with this summer, this could be the one for you.
Nautical Themed Slot Game Silver Seas Released in May
If you are looking for a nautical theme slot, or you are looking for a new theme to try out and this interests you, Silver Seas is to be released in May and could provide you with a game to play over the summer.
This game has a great 96.24% RTP which means you are getting great value for money when you play this game, which is of course what we all want. The maximum payout on the game is a little low at 2,000x your stake, though this is a game that features smaller regular payments rather than bit jackpots to aim for.
The setup is a simple one, with five reels and a total of 20 pay lines to play on, so nothing too complicated there. While you are playing the game, look out for the ship wheel symbol, this is the wild symbol and can be used with other symbols to create winning lines, so it will certainly help you.
Also, look out for the jackpot meter down the left-hand side of the screen. This fills up when you get silver coins and skulls on the reels, giving a jackpot payout when full. This could be anything up to 2,000x your unit stake, depending on the number of symbols you have on the spin.
The final symbol to watch out for is a second scatter symbol. This is a pirate ship with the free spins symbol on it. Get three of these on the board and you will be able to spin the free spins reel. This gives you anything up to 30 free spins, with a multiplier of 2x or 3x attached to those spins to increase your winnings further.
With pirates and a nautical theme, this game will no doubt appeal to a lot of people. If you like this, or you are looking for something a little different with a strong theme then check out Silver Seas when it is released in May.
Stakelogic Release Mini Game Ultra Joker
While we love to see slot games getting bigger and being packed with features, special symbols and a large number of pay lines, sometimes it is nice to step back and go play an old-style game that is very basic.
If you want that then check out Ultra Joker from Stakelogic this month, a game that will take you back in time with its simple gameplay. This title has 3×3 reels and just five ways to win, there is nothing quite as simple as what we have on offer here.
To win, you need to match three symbols across the reels, either ones that are the same or by using wilds to put lines together. The symbols on the game are all retro symbols too, which adds even more to the style, so look out for bar symbols, X, cherries, oranges, plums and more.
The wild symbol on this game is the joker symbol, and look out for this because it adds a multiplier to the game to increase your winnings when you get a winning line. To add something a little different here, when you get a winning line, you can gamble the money to try and increase your win. This is based on cards, you can guess the suit, colour or both to give yourself a win of 2x or 4x your initial success.
There is also the chance to land a repeat win too if you have a winning line of the same symbol. This will take you to a wheel, which either repeats the win or pays you out for the standard win in full, so you can’t lose anything here but get the chance to double your winnings.
If you are looking for an old-style game to watch, with a really retro feel that is completely different to the type of gaming we have from new games, Ultra Joker from Stakelogic certainly ticks that box.
