We sometime see November as a quiet month for slot releases, with many companies focusing all their attention on the festive games they are releasing in December. However, things look pretty busy this month which is great for slot gamers, with a range of new titles coming out which all look worth investigating.
Of course, everyone is going to be excited by what Christmas titles we have on offer next month, but before they arrive, here is a look at some of the biggest titles to be released in November.
Three New Megaways Titles Hit Our Screens
The Megaways way of gaming continues to grow in popularity with players. You only need to look at the number of Megaways titles that we have to play right now to see just how big this style of gaming is becoming.
Want some good news if you love Megaways? Three more are on their way in the month of November. These are all from different game developers, though all have teamed up with the Megaways license that is held by Big Time Gaming.
NetEnt, iSoftBet and Stakelogic are the three companies behind the games, with the NetEnt title in particular set to be a big smash.
The reason for this is because the title is one that NetEnt have previously released as a standard game, the title is Divine Fortune. This popular game, based on Greek mythology, has been given a facelift and as part of that, the Megaways engine has been added to the game. It is expected that NetEnt will do this with a lot of their older and more popular titles over the coming months, so make sure you watch out for this if you like their studio.
The game has the standard number of Megaways win lines, which is 117649 when the reels are expanded. An RTP of 96.09% is slightly above average, which is right in line with other titles like this one, so you are getting a fair deal here.
Anyone that has played the original version of Divine Fortune and enjoyed it should certainly be looking out for this one hitting their casino and trying it out. The same great design and immersive theme remains in the game, but the actual engine running the show has received a huge upgrade.
Aztec Gold Extra Gold: Megaways Released in November
The second Megaways title coming out this month to mention is another game that is a sequel. The original game, Aztec Gold, was released back in 2019 by iSoftBet and the game was very well received by players. So much so that they have decided to quickly bring out an even bigger and better version just a year later with the release of Aztec Gold Extra Gold: Megaways.
It has to be said here that if you are looking for big upgrades on the old game then you are going to be disappointed. We have a couple of new features and some minor cosmetic work but other than that, this is essentially a very similar game. That shouldn’t stop you from playing on it though, and you can’t blame iSoftBet for this, with the first release being so well received, if its not broke then don’t fix it, as the saying goes.
The game offers a standard version of Megaways, we have six reels, 117,649 total win lines if the reels are expanded fully and an RTP of 96.00%, back in the middle of where you would expect it.
One of the big selling points about the original Aztec Gold game was the graphics on offer and how the theme worked brilliantly, taking you back to Ancient Egypt. That has been kept, this game looks very similar, but that is a positive, not a criticism, because the original graphics worked perfectly on the game that was released last year.
If you’ve not played this title before then thanks to this new release, now is as good a time as any to give it a try. If you have played the old one and want a change, give this a go, just don’t expect too much to have changed. If you come in here with big expectations, the chances are you will be disappointed, this is a similar game, just with a couple of tweaks to make it even better.
Candyways Bonanza Megaways Rounds Off Trio of Megaways
The final of our three Megaways releases this month is Candyways Bonanza Megaways, a game brought to us by Stakelogic.
What we love about this game is that the game uses Megaways but in a different way to many other titles, which is a good strategy to employ when you consider just how crowded the Megaways scene is becoming. This game offers a maximum of just 512 ways to win, far lower than the standard Megaways offering and the reason for this is because there are just three reels to play on.
The game has an RTP of 96.01% which is good for this type of game and offers either a different or a simplified version of Megaways depending on how you look at it. Those experienced can come here for a different offering while those new to Megaways can come here for a smaller and simpler version to find their feet.
Look out for the bonus multipliers on offer here, they are key to landing the big win on this slot, which is an impressive 20,000x your unit stake. Cascade reels are not in play here, another feature that many Megaways slot games have, but you won’t get them while playing this. Again, this makes the game that little bit easier for the new Megaways players to understand and work out.
We have three great Megaways titles to choose from this month. Two offer you the chance to play a sequel while if you are a new player, the third, Candyways Bonanza, is set up perfectly for you.
Pragmatic Play Attack the Market with Three Releases in November
If there is one developer really attacking the market this week then it is certainly Pragmatic Play. The have decided to release three different games this month, all with very different and unique themes attached to them. They are clearly attacking at an important time and it will be interesting to see how these three games are received by players.
The first game to talk about is called Dragon Tiger and this is a Chinese themed slot game. Straight away your eyes are drawn to the very impressive RTP on offer here which is 96.50%, so you know you are going to get a great deal.
The reels are only 5×4 but there are 1024 different ways to win on this slot, there is a lot going off in such a small space. On the reels themselves, you will see a variety of different Chinese related symbols which only add to the theme and the red colours mixed in with fire outside of the gaming area certainly add to that.
There are two features to look for on the game, the first is the scatters, which are there to offer you free spins, with anything up to 20 being available per spin. Also make sure you look for the wild symbols, these replace any other except for the scatter as standard but on top of that, they also carry a multiplier to increase your winnings when you use them to create winning lines.
Elsewhere, the second release from Pragmatic Play to talk about is Pirate Gold Deluxe, a game that is a new version of the very popular Pirate Gold. It is surprising to see another release of this game considering that Pirate Gold only came out in 2019, but Pragmatic Play must think they have enough to make an upgraded version.
It is another game with a strong RTP, this one sits at 96.48% which is great to see. A maximum payout of 15,000x your unit stake is the jackpot on offer, and you can win this by playing the 40 game lines that are spread out across the five reels on this game.
Look out for the money symbol when you are playing this game, get eight of these on the reels at the same time and you will begin the lucky treasure bag bonus game. This keeps the money symbols sticky during three re-spins, where you can build up as many money symbols as possible and ultimately a big win on the reels.
The final game from Pragmatic Play this month is Cowboys Gold, which as the name suggests, is a wild west themed slot game. This is becoming a little crowded, so games need to offer something new to stand out and Pragmatic Play will be hoping they have that here.
This is a simple game with five reels and 10 pay lines for you to play, so it won’t be too confusing for newcomers. The RTP on offer is 96.00% so you are going to get a good deal when you play and the maximum payout is 6065x your unit stake.
Look out for the sheriff badge on the reels, this acts as the wild here while the scatter symbol gives you the chance to win free spins, with 10 given to start with and then the chance to win more during the feature.
This is a nice wild west themed slot, one that has a simple gaming area and will appeal to new players because of that. If you are new and like the wild west, head over and check Cowboys Gold out this month.
