With New Year’s Eve and midnight wishes behind us, it is time we stared making our resolutions come to life. Numerous slot manufacturers made grand promises by the end of the previous year, and we slowly but surely see them live up to the expectations and keeping their word.
New year in the iGaming industry means new video slots by a quartet of award-winning online content suppliers. Read on to see what new features and themes they will surprise us with this time. You are in for a magical January, let me tell you that!
The Wiz by Elk Studios
The snow might be slowly melting and winter will be over before long, but with the new slot release by Elk Studios you get to decide the season. The Wiz, Elk Studios’ firstborn in 2019, is a miraculous slot that will let you control the world with your magic. In fact, in the Middle English ‘wysard’ means ‘a wise man’, so let me see you put your hand up, someone’s calling you out!
The Wiz is a 5-reel volatile new slot by the famed Elk Studios. Let the sage show you his ways, cast spells and brew potions with him as you watch wild dragons fly above you. The symbols are just as magical as you might expect – obscure artefacts, mysterious chests, the Sun and the Moon.
The extremely captivating game will take you on a journey no fantasy slot has ever done before. The special features are mind-blowing. Landing two or more Bonus Symbols will trigger the Wizspin Feature. While at it, all low paying symbols will turn into high paying ones, whilst the Dragon will serve as both a walking wild and a x2-5 multiplier! The stunning graphics and powerful sound effects follow the theme beautifully. Players will not be able to resist this game. Let the magic begin!
Faerie Spells by BetSoft
We are continuing with the running theme of magic with BetSoft’s freshest launch. This magnificent video slot is a brightly coloured fantasy release interleaved with shades of purple, green and mystical blue. The special symbols are in the form of alluring fairies and queens, with the King of the Forest acting as the Wild. Faerie Spells is a 5-reel slot with 100 paylines allowing you a coin size of at least 0.01 and 1.00 at most. In the bonus game, your display will be swarmed with mystical and magical creatures, insects and bugs and fairy potions, triggering a whole lot of Free Spins. Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatter will render 5, 10 and 15 Free Spins, respectively. No app is needed to enjoy Faerie Spells, and you can play the game on a smartphone, iPhone and iPad alike.
Jumbo Stampede by iSoftBet
Africa’s calling! Jumbo Stampede is a new and action-packed slot coming straight from the wilderness! While you are cruising and enjoying your safari trip, this 6-reel slot will invite you to hunt down its Special Jumbo Symbols and awake the Free Spins round, during which non-adjacent pays will be awarded. Three Scatter Symbols will awaken the Free Spins Round. When you get 2 or more Scatter Symbols, you will get even more additional Free Spins! The African slot will let you win up to 50 Free Spins!
Treasure Horse by Pragmatic Play
Set to see the light of day on the 7th of February 2019, Treasure Horse slot is a melange of something old and something new. First of all, you might find it unexpected, but Treasure Horse is a 3×3 reel slot. Pragmatic Play has been playing around lately with diverse game mechanics and came up with this splendid slot that has the best of both worlds. This classic slot with a twist is a highly volatile one, and remarkable engaging as well.
So, what do you need to do? Your goal is to catch the three Treasure Horses, and you will earn 8 Free Spins. But there is so much more! Remember when I said “something new”. This is where that bit plays part. Once you have collected the three Treasure Horses, the 4th reel will show up on the reel grid, and will multiply the total win. I know, right?!
As far as the theme goes, this last slot for January 2019 is nothing short of magical. The game is set against an Oriental background, misty mountains and charming waterfalls, with a pagoda overlooking the scene. You will see a strong influence of the Chinese letters in this game, as all symbols are embellished with them. High value symbols are present in the shape of the lucky Chinese coins in various sizes, and the Scatter formed like the golden horse will lead you through the adventure. Treasure Horse is a 18-payline slot with the maximum win potential of 6,000x, and an RTP of 96.52%. Bets go everywhere between €0.18 and €90.
