The month of June is almost over and the summer is closing in on its peak, and we do not lack fresh slot entertainment – if anything, the number of new, attractive slots is only getting higher. Reports of new releases are coming from all around, and here are some of the games that are perfect for some July slot action, on mobile or desktop, any way you like it.
Fortunium by Microgaming
Only a day after introducing Stormcraft Studios, a new independent game studio that will be crafting and supplying exclusive, epic content to Microgaming, the company published the news about the release of Fortunium online slot. The game was made by Stormcraft Studios and will be available exclusively to Microgaming’s operators. It features 5 reels and 40 paying lines, beautifully crafted characters and an overall steampunk theme. There aren’t that many steampunk-themed games out there, and the latest Microgaming product makes for a great addition to the genre. Fortunium is the Golden City of opportunity; it is a metropolis of the future, covered with riches and shiny treasure items. Victoria the acclaimed explorer and Maximillian the industrious inventor are the two main characters – slot high paying symbols in Fortunium. The slot boasts special features such as Mystery Symbols, Win Booster and Mystery Reels.
Both Victoria and Maximilian can appear as super stacked symbols in portrait view. Mystery Symbols can be anything from a high paying icon to a random Wild; the Win Booster feature will increase the player’s wager by 50% but guarantee only high paying icons and Wilds in Mystery Symbols mode. Boost the symbols and you can get free spins, too. Fortunium is tailored to excel on mobile devices, so it’s a great bet for gamers on the go.
Hot Shots by iSoftBet
Newest release by iSoftBet, Hot Shots is not a slot you can figure out only by hearing or reading the name. Entitled Hot Shots, this is a game about animals doing sports. Clearly inspired by the World Cup, the slot features dogs, bulls, cheetahs, bears and chickens wearing different shirts of various national football teams. The reels are set against a football field somewhere in the woods where these animals are having a tournament of their own. The Hot Shots logo is the Scatter symbol and the ball is the Wild. These special symbols make magic happen on the reels: the Wilds expand vertically and horizontally (but they only appear on the middle reels) and the Scatter triggers free spins. It takes at least 3 of them to activate the freebies round and win 4x the total bet + 10 free spins. If you manage to land 5 Scatters the reward will go up: 10x the total bet and 20 free spins.
The slot offers 243 ways to win in the base game, meaning there are no paying lines and wins are created via adjacent symbols. Have you got any hot shots in you? Then spin away!
Platooners by ELK Studios
Platooners is a 5-reel, 4-row video slot designed for mobile and desktop with 178 paylines and a quirky backstory of recruits getting ready to shoot a jungle war movie. It may sound strange, but it’s actually super fun, and if you’ve had the chance to play Bloopers from ELK then you’ll know what we’re talking about – Platooners is, in fact, a follow-up to Bloopers. The vibrant slot features a cast of action heroes: the Green Rocket Platooner, the Red Grenades Platooner and the Yellow Bullets Platooner. Each of them delivers hardcore action on the reels and a performance of their lives.
The main special feature of the Platooners slot is the Action Spins round which is triggered randomly and has three different modes, each corresponding to the individual characters. The Green Rocket Platooner shoots out rockets and turns symbols on reels 1 and 3 into matching icons for bigger wins. The Red Grenades Platoooner throws his grenades all over the place and when they land they turn into Wilds. Cha-ching! The Yellow Bullets Platooner fires from his machine gun generating five-of-a-kind wins, and that’s not even the half of it. There is also the Platooners vs. Snakes of Fortune Bonus, an entertaining mini-game of 15 rounds where the little guys have to defeat the snake, reach the higher level and win big.
Platooners is a medium to high variance slot with a max win of 250,000 coins and a 96.3% RTP, scheduled for release on June 26th.
