A five-course platter of Megaways is served up for fans of the mechanic to feast on this week with Gold Megaways, The Expendables New Mission Megaways, Kingmaker Fully Loaded Megaways, NFT Megaways and Tyrant King Megaways – enough to fill a Megaways dedicated newsletter. But, this week, GMBLRS brings other slots to the forefront that venture outside the box with their own innovation and features set to impress.
Recommended Casinos to Play this Week’s New Slots
6th September 2021 | Avatar UX – PapayaPop
For those unfamiliar with the PopWins mechanic, a basic spin takes winning combinations of symbols and pops them into two symbol spaces for new ones to appear in, chaining wins of increasing reel height and ways to pay. PopWins games pay both ways and usually trigger a free spins bonus from increasing the reels to the maximum. Avatar UX, powered by Yggdrasil, have drawn worthy attention from players and studios alike with the mesmerising mechanic, seen on games like HippoPop and CherryPop (recently copied by Stakelogic with Mystery Drop).
PapayaPop seeks to push the studio further into the limelight with a bonus style of three strikes and out, offering a potentially unlimited number of spins with an unlimited increasing win multiplier. A feature gamble can elevate starting values to an x5 multiplier with 6025+ ways.
PapayaPop is a video slot with a default 5×3 reel set and 243 ways to win, doubled to 486 ways thanks to the pay-both-ways mechanic. The format can increase up to 5×6 with a total of 15,552 ways in the base game while in the free spins, the maximum is 5×9 with 118,098 ways leading to wins of up to 10,000x your stake.
Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on adjacent reels. Worth noting is that a 5-of-a-kind is indeed paid both ways. Available on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96% and a hit frequency of roughly 1:4.5 spins. Using the Bonus Buy for 75x bet retains the same RTP.
7th September 2021 | Foxium – Cossacks: The Wild Hunt
It’s about time Foxium followed Boom Pirates with another title featuring WonderWays. Cossacks: The Wild Hunt Wonderways is powered by Microgaming and offers up to 46,656 Wonderways, wild substitutions, cascading wins, multipliers and progressive multipliers, plus a free spins bonus that could see you slay up to 10,000 times your bet.
On top of Wonderways and the Cascading win mechanics, Cossacks: The Wild Hunt has a progressive win multiplier and two random base game features. Adding an extra twist to the gameplay, for five times your stake, the Foxify feature will open the reels to the maximum number of 46,656 ways to win and increasing the chances of triggering the free spins.
Cossacks: The Wild Hunt is a video slot with six reels, up to six rows and a possible 46,656 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. You can join the fierce warriors on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 25 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility with a default RTP of 96.19%. Beware, lower RTP settings at 94.19% or 92.23% are offered. Always check the help files to find out which version you will be playing.
7th September 2021 | Relax Gaming – Dead Man’s Trail
Fans of the perpetual modifiers from the Money Train series are in for a real treat with Dead Man’s Trail from Relax Gaming. And if the graphics of the aforementioned put you off slightly, this game more than makes up for it. Follow the Dead Man’s Trail, an epic board-game slot saga from Relax Gaming, with a motley crew of brigands. Wild substitutions, stacked symbols and a random coin win feature are just a taste of the action on the reels before a board game-style bonus with bet multipliers and eleven special actions from mystery chests, including those popular persistent modifiers, which can multiply wins on every step of up to 50,000x your bet.
Dead Man’s Trail looks exemplary, like a blockbuster video game with an atmospherical musical score to match. Relax Gaming has spared no expense in creating a slot of monumental fibre. A 5×4 video slot with 40 pay lines, wins are awarded for matching three or more symbols from left to right. You can follow the trail from 0.10 credits to 20 credits per spin and bonus buy straight into the feature for 100x your stake. This game is highly volatile and comes with an RTP of 96.29%. Using bonus buy will increase the RTP to an attractive 98%.
9th September 2021 | Play’n GO – Dr Toonz
Fans of Reactoonz one and two are in for a third instalment introducing the crazy creator of the toonz themselves – Dr Toonz. Play’n GO opted for their Dynamic Payways game engine that comes with a 6×4 format but can increase the payouts thanks to x2 multipliers that can appear on each reel, virtually increasing the number of betways up to a maximum of 262,144. The madcap Dr throws wild substitutions, a Quantumeter charger with three modifiers and a free spins round into the mix for concoctions of up to 22,000 times your bet.
Dr. Toonz is a cascading video slot in a 6×4 format with 4,096 ways to win as default, increasing up to a maximum of 262,144 ways. You can join the wacky scientist on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility (8/10) with a default RTP of 96.25%. Beware, casino operators might choose lower RTP settings at 94.25%, 91.25% or even lower.
Noteworthy titles that wrestled for inclusion and are worth a look include a much improved Slot Vegas Fully Loaded Megaquads. Zulu Gold continues Elk Studios popular series albeit with the lowest RTP so far at 95%. And an honourable mention must go to God of Fire Ultraways for introducing the online gaming world to more than 60 million ways to pay, yes, that’s not an extra zero; the innovative creation from Northern Lights Gaming beats all others hands down with mind-blowing ways to pay using their Ultraways game engine.
