As we leave the summer behind, an army of slot gaming titles are set for release over the next couple of months, beginning with quite a few in September. Traditionally, sporting leagues are usually beginning to play again at this time but with the Covid-19 pandemic halting sport, some are only just finishing while others are still playing last season.
The uncertainty around sport has given the casino industry a chance to shine and some of the recent slot game releases will have picked up new fans and interest from those who are normally too busy to look.
Developers will be hoping to keep cashing in on that over the coming weeks and months as people are still finding themselves limited in the activities they can do, meaning more time than ever before at home.
Here is a look at what is set for release in September, beginning with two new progressive jackpot games that can give players the chance to win huge sums of money.
Microgaming to Release Sisters of Oz WowPot
Microgaming are adding another huge progressive jackpot game to their ranks with the release of Sisters of Oz WowPot in September.
The standard part of this game has five reels, 20 pay lines and a jackpot of 720x your stake. The RTP is 92%, which does seem low but that is because of the progressive jackpot on this game, everything is featured around trying to win the big jackpot on offer.
The standard features of this game make it good as a standalone but when you add in the progressive jackpot feature, this game comes to life.
A total of four different jackpots can be won on this game, they are mini, minor, major and the WowPot.
After the jackpots have been won, they reset and begin to build again. The mini resets at $10, the minor at $100, the major is $50,000 and the WowPot resets at $2 million. Even if you win either of the big two pots in their early stages when they are at their lowest, this is still going to give you a win large enough to be a life-changing sum of money.
Many people love to chase the big jackpots and dream of winning big. For these, we have a range of games on the market and there are some great titles. It appears as though Microgaming have created another to go alongside them with the release of Sisters of Oz WowPot, a game which is sure to be popular when it is released.
Play’n’Go Enhance Wealth Series with Third Release
Another progressive jackpot game will hit our screens in September when Play’n’Go release the Temple of Wealth. This is the third game in a series known as the wealth series and anyone who has played the other two releases will know these are good.
The standard part of this game has enough for players to play it without even thinking about the progressive jackpots on offer. This is a very good game, with five reels and 243 pay lines to play. The RTP is very impressive for a progressive jackpot slot, this is set at 96.20%.
The standard jackpot offers you a payout of 5000x your unit stake, this alone is bigger than some of the standard games on the market which don’t have the progressive jackpot feature attached to them.
This feature makes the game even bigger and better, with four further progressive pots on offer. These are the mini, minor, major and grand and they go up in stature to the grand which is the main prize on offer.
The setup of this game makes it a great hybrid game for players. If you like regular slot gaming and have never played progressive jackpot games before and you want to get a taste for what they are like then this is the type of game you should be looking out for.
It offers you the chance to experience progressive jackpot gaming for the first time but because the game has excellent rewards for the standard side of things, you can ignore the progressive aspect to a degree and still get a good deal on your gaming.
This is likely to be a popular game and it would be no surprise to see a lot of new progressive jackpot players turn to this game to try things out.
New Megaways Title from iSoftBet
The Megaways range of games continues to expand and it is no surprise given that they are some of the most popular on the market. In September we have another one to add to the collection when iSoftBet release Queen of Hearts Megaways.
As you would expect, the six reels have a huge 117,649 ways to win for players, while the RTP is very good at 96% and the maximum jackpot win is 37,500x your stake, also very impressive and worth chasing.
Look out for cascading reels to help you pick up wins and wilds are available on the middle four reels, so you only need to link up the outer two reels to get a big win if you have wilds across the middle.
Perhaps the best feature of this slot though is the Max Megaways feature. This gives you the maximum number of symbols and ways to win on the reels and this happens randomly throughout the game, you don’t need to do anything to trigger it. Look out for scatters too, they give you free spins and these can be anywhere from 12 to 27 rounds of them, so certainly worth trying to win.
It seems we have several Megaways games available for players, and more keep being added to the series. There is a need to keep them different and fresh, two boxes that Queen of Hearts certainly ticks and for that reason, we expect this to be another popular game when it is released in September.
Pragmatic Play Release Wild Wild Riches
The developer Pragmatic Play looks set to have a busy period coming up with plenty of different releases and they are certainly worth keeping an eye on. One of those releases is this game, Wild Wild Riches.
This Irish themed slot game has a fantastic RTP for players at 96.77%, which is great to see. There are three reels and a total of 576 pay lines available to play on. The maximum payout for this slot is also impressive at 4608x your unit stake, so certainly something worth chasing.
The setup on this slot is slightly different to normal, with two reels showing three symbols and three reels showing four symbols. This may make it look a little complicated to newer players, but is a good feature for those who are experienced and looking for something a little different.
As the name of this slot suggests, wild symbols play a big part here. They offer the chance to replace other symbols but can also give you rewards when they are combined with money symbols. These are the symbols featuring the pots of gold and can be anything from 1x up to 25x your stake.
For those looking to play a feature-heavy game with an excellent RTP and jackpot, Wild Wild Riches is the game for you in September.
