Slot Vegas Megaquads™ by Big Time Gaming
Australia’s Big Time Gaming have continued to produce some of the most exciting video slots this year, introducing new concepts like Megaclusters™ and this one, Megaquads™! The Slot Vegas game is set in Sin City and has the unusual format of four 4x4 reel sets. The gameplay is set to a very high variance which is typical of BTG, and the action is suitably frenetic. The best feature happens when you land two Rainbow Wild symbols on adjacent reel sets which causes them to merge together into an 8x8 grid with over 16,000,000 win ways. As with their Megaways™ series, there are plenty of free spins and multiplier to keep things interesting.
The top payout is a massive 45,000x your stake and the RTP is set at a favourable 96.59%. This is one of the most innovative and clever video slots of the year and a must play for serious casino fans.
Book of Shadows by Nolimit City
Nolimit City are a Swedish game developer who arrived have been on the scene for a few years now. They are known for producing very good high variance slot games with big win potential. Games like Deadwood and Tombstone have become hugely popular in the slot streaming community. Book of Shadows is their take on a series of slot games that includes Book of Ra by Novomatic and Book of Dead by Play n Go. In these games the best prizes are won in the free spins round where one icon is chosen as a special symbol. When it lands it expands to full reel height and locks in place for the rest of the spins. If it is a premium icon then this enhances the win potential of the game for those free spins. Nolimit City have made their version into a creepy, horror-themed game with a sinister backdrop and music to set the scene.
The RTP of Book of Shadows is 96.07% and the top prize is over 30,000x your stake on each spin.
Pink Elephants 2 by Thunderkick
For fans of high volatility slots, Thunderkick’s original Pink Elephants game from 2017 was an instant classic. It uses a 4,096 ways to win engine – the same format first made famous in WMS’ Raging Rhino game. Here, three or more identical symbols on adjacent reels trigger payouts, regardless of the row they sit on. It’s this pay model that brings up over 4,000 paylines per spin. These slots also typically use a mix of free spins, wilds and multipliers to push up the win potential in the bonus round. Thunderkick’s psychedelic take on this game made the whole experience of spinning the reels even more compelling. For the sequel, this Swedish developer moved the backdrop to a mountain scene but kept the strange pink beasts as part of the show, and their meerkat friends, crucial for unlocking the biggest prizes. If you choose to take Pink Elephants 2 for a ride then aim to hit the free spins round where you can trigger symbol upgrades that push the win potential as high as 10,000x. It’s thrilling stuff and one of the stand-out games of the year.
