With the Christmas season just around the corner, we would expect that in December all we can play are festive-themed slot machines. However, it seems that the festive mood doesn’t work for certain developers. Instead of Santa, his helpers and presents beloved even by grown-ups, they have gone for other themes that will provide players with the same level of excitement and multiple opportunities to win big. Let’s see what new slots for December 2018 are.
ChilliPop by BetSoft
This winter, you can spice things up with ChilliPop, a Mexican-themed video slot by BetSoft. Using the Cluster Pays system and cascading reels, the slot will provide you with extra chances of winning as long as new clusters are created. The game boasts outstanding 3D graphics and cartoonish animations accompanied by a mariachi soundtrack. The reels are home to red, yellow and green peppers, tomatoes, onions and garlic that pay when 3 or more form a cluster. The piñata stands for Wild that will help you complete more clusters.
The biggest attraction of the game paying up to $103,363 in a single spin is the free spins feature. Triggered by 3 or more Mule Scatters, it awards between 5 and 26 free spins. Scatters hitting the reels during free games will not award extra free spins. Instead, they will make the grid expand by adding new rows and reels. If you manage to fill the Mule Trail with 70 Scatters, you will play the game at an 8×8 layout. Covering the reels entirely by Wilds grants a bonus win worth from 50x up to 1,000x your total bet.
Fruits & Jokers 40 by Playson
You can easily guess from its title that the Playson-powered slot machine offers 40 paylines. This is the third fruit machine from the developer’s portfolio that features the Joker. It uses a 5×4 layout with the reels filled with all sorts of juicy fruits and lucky sevens. The Joker assumes the role of Wild that can appear in stacks and replaces all symbols except for Scatters. Joker Wild is the top paying symbol awarding 37.50x your bet for five of a kind. Scatter is represented by a star and it pays 400x your bet when 5 of these land anywhere on the reels. The slot looks gorgeous with meticulously drawn fruits and pays up to 1,500x your total bet.
Fruit Blox by Red Tiger Gaming
The Red Tiger Gaming 2018 release is a fruit-themed slot machine played at a 6×4 layout and offering over 6,000 ways to win. It benefits from Connected Ways payouts, the brand new feature with symbols paying when at least three of a kind appear connected vertically or horizontally. Another attraction of the game are mega tiles that pay doubled prizes when two or more matching mega tiles land on adjacent positions.
To trigger the free spins feature, you have to land Free Spins Scatter. A mega tile consisting of 4 blocks awards 4 free spins. If you land two full mega tiles next to each other, you will win a doubled number of free spins. That means that instead of 8 free games, you are granted 8 free games. The slot brags attractive visuals with fruit symbols, sevens, bars, stars and bells looking like they are made of glass. It pays up to 10,000x the total stake.
Pearl of the Orient by iSoftBet
Pearl of the Orient is a 5-reel, 10-payline slot machine inspired by Chinese mythology. It features theme-related symbols such as golden dragons, ingots, golden frogs, lucky coins and more. A Chinese lady with a pearl in his hands stands for Wild that appears on the three middle reels only. This symbol will substitute for any other symbol bar Scatter and expand to help you complete more winning combinations.
Look out for Yin Yang Scatter coming in gold and green as three or more of these award 12 free spins. In addition, you can win up to 500 coins. During free games, Wild shows up on the reels and upgrade one of high-value symbols in order given above the reels. This simply means that you can hit more high paying combinations within the feature. A maximum possible payout you can hit in this iSoftBet slot using a traditional Chinese theme is 5.000 coins.
Nitro Circus by Yggdrasil Gaming
Nitro Circus is the first ever branded slot from the Yggdrasil creative kitchen. Played at a 5×4 layout and offering 25 fixed paylines, the game will provide you with a unique gaming experience thanks to stunning design accompanied by realistic sound effects and loads of bonus features. If you join the crazy ride, you will meet some of the biggest Nitro Circus stars and enjoy adrenaline-fuelled action. One of the biggest attractions is the Nitro Jump bonus game with players flying through the air on one of 7 vehicles. During the feature, you can collect multipliers, coin wins and other bonuses.
Look out for Nitro Bomb symbols as they trigger up to 30 free games. If you land two of these in the base game, you will unlock Nitro-Blast mini-game that can award free spins, Nitro Wilds, Free Spin Multiplier, extra free spins or a vehicle for your collection. You can trigger other bonus features as well by collecting vehicles enabling you to do better tricks and win higher cash prizes. There’s a lot going on in this licensed slot by Yggdrasil and we highly recommend you give it a try!
