The latest online slot machine from Betsoft Gaming is a Fruit/Asian themed 3D slot machine called Fruit Zen. This is a non-downloadable slot which has 5 reels and 10 winning paylines, it can be launched instantly in your browser at several top Betsoft Gaming powered casinos and it is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode.
Speaking about the release of this brand new slot was the Head of Product Development at Betsoft Gaming, Anthony Locke, “Fruit Zen is a gorgeous true 3D gaming experience. It is important to us to develop video slots of all styles, and once again we bring the broadest range of beautifully animated themes to the market. The 3D water effect in the background is a tremendous artistic accomplishment, sure to soothe and delight all players who choose Fruit Zen for entertainment.”
The best thing about this new slot is the Fruit Zen Wild Symbol. This can expand to cover an entire reel when it lands on the three middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4). When the Wild Symbol does expand, it will cause a respin of the remaining reels and hopefully this will also result in a line win. This new slot should start to appear in more Betsoft Gaming powered casinos over the next few weeks, but if you want to play on it right now you’ll need to head over to Tropezia Palace Casino.
The new IGT Interactive slot is called 100 Ladies and this one is also a non-downloadable slot which is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. 100 Ladies has an insect/nature theme with 5 reels and a whopping 100 winning paylines. The Bonus Symbol is the word Bonus and the Wild Symbol is the group of Ladybirds.
When three Bonus Symbols show up on the middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4), you will be awarded 10 Free Spins and 2X times your total bet. Free Spins can also be retriggered (which seems to happen quite often) and they are re-triggered in the same way that they were triggered during regular play. If you want play on this slot right now, you’ll need to head over to Mr Green Casino, but hopefully this one should also become more widely available over the next few weeks. The comments contained within this article came from the official Betsoft Gaming website.

Net Entertainment (also known simply as NetEnt) recently launched a new slot which appears to be the sequel to one of their most famous slots, Mega Fortune. The new & improved version is a lot like the old one, but this one has a few new symbols to look out for and it is called Mega Fortune Dreams.
The new Mega Fortune Dreams online slot from NetEnt has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines with Diamond Scatter Symbols, Fortune Wheel Bonus Symbols and Palm Tree Wild Symbols. The Bonus Round on this slot is basically the same as the bonus round on Mega Fortune, but it triggers in a slightly different way on this new slot.
Instead of needing three Bonus Symbol to land across one of the active paylines on reels 1, 2 and 3, the Bonus Symbols must land in any positon on reels 3, 4 and 5 on the new version. This is also a non-downloadable slot and it has the same three progressive jackpots to play for, the largest of which is currently worth almost 810,000.00 coins.
There also a unique Respin Feature available on this slot and this and this will trigger when three or more Palm Tree Wild Symbols appear in any positon across the reels. This is a great new progressive slot from NetEnt and it can now be found in several fully licensed online casinos in both the real money mode and in the free play mode.
Playtech recently launched ANOTHER football themed slot called Top Trumps World Football Stars 2014. This new slot has 5 reels and just 15 winning paylines and it has a special Hall of Champions Bonus and Free Spins Bonus Round. Extra Wild Symbols appear on the reels during the Free Spins Bonus Round and they can help generate some big winning combinations.
The Wild Symbol is Cristiano Ronaldo and the Top Trumps Logo is the Scatter Symbol. The other special Symbol to keep an eye out for on this slot is the Gold Medallion Bonus Symbol. This slot also has an optional Gamble Feature with a maximum £2,500 Double Up Limit available. You can launch this slot instantly in your browser or from within a secure download client at growing number of fully licensed Playtech casinos.
The other company that has recently launched a couple of great new online slots was WMS Gaming. Their new slots included a Pirate themed slot called Red Flag Fleet and also a Moon themed slot called Lunaris. These two slots are both non-downloadable and they both have Wild Symbols which can substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter/Bonus Symbols.
Lunaris has 10 reels and 100 winning paylines and Red Flag Fleet has 6 reels with 192 winning paylines and most of the big prizes on these slots come from within the Free Spins Bonus Round. Look out for these two new slots in your favourite WMS Gaming powered casino. If they haven’t already appeared yet, it shouldn’t be too long before they do arrive.

IGT Interactive launched a brand new online slot machine in June 2014 called In Bloom. This new slot has a Flowers/Nature theme with 5 reels and 40 winning paylines. It has some great special features for players to enjoy, as well as a free spins bonus round and also a simple picking bonus round.
When playing on this slot keep an eye out for Scatter Symbols and Bonus Symbols. This slot also has a new & unique special feature called the Symbol Burst Feature and this is active all the time. This can basically make your wins much bigger than they are and this is clearly explained in the paytable.
When two or three of the Butterfly Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels, you will get to take part in the Garden Bonus to see how many Free Spins you have won. The prizes up for grabs here include 5, 8, 10 or 12 Free Spins. Simply choose one of these flowers.
At the end of the Free Spins Bonus Round, you also get to take part in another fun little bonus game called the Bonus Pump Feature. You will be presented with several clickable items and behind each item is hiding a guaranteed stake multiplier ranging from as little as 1X up to a maximum 50X.
You will also be awarded up to 60x times your total stake during regular play when three or more of the Bonus Symbols appear in view. The Bonus Symbols will only ever land on the centre reel (aka reel 3). The entertaining bonus rounds and special features on this slot are fantastic and the new Symbol Burst Feature generally awards decent prizes.
In Bloom is another great slot from IGT Interactive and if you want to play on this one right now, you would need to head over to Mr Green Casino. It is still brand new (at the time of writing), so very few online casinos have had a chance to add it to their libraries yet. Hopefully it will become more widely available throughout July 2014.
Some of the other top IGT powered casinos that will also probably add this game will include BetVictor Casino, Betfred Slots, William Hill Vegas Casino, Bet365 Games, Gala Casino, bgo Vegas and Jackpotjoy. IGT software can actually be found in more than 130 fully licensed gambling portals.

The Wish Master is a brand new feature packed online slot machine from Net Entertainment. This is a non-downloadable slot machine which can be launched over NetEnt’s instant flash casino platform at several fully licensed online casinos such as Bet365 Vegas, Mr Green Casino, Ladbrokes Games, Casumo Casino and Tropezia Palace Casino.
“The Wish Master builds on our portfolio of cutting-edge video slots. The graphics are stunning, the gameplay is second-to-none and we’re confident our customers and their players will enjoy the game play experience,” said the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Simon Hammon. We extracted these comments from the NetEnt website.
The Wish Master™ online slot machine is available in the real cash mode and in the free play mode, it has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines and it also has an exciting new special feature called The Wish Master Feature. This will trigger when one of the Scatter Symbols shows up in any position across the reels.
The betting range on this slot is suitable for lowrollers and high rollers, the jackpot is worth as much as 900,000.00 coins and to view the paytable on this slot, you will need to press the ‘information’ button which is located towards the left hand side of the game window. The lowest cost for spin will set you back just 0.25 coins while the maximum bet allowed is 100.00 coins per spin.
As soon as The Wish Master Feature triggers, the Genie will escape from his lam and he will appear on the screen. He will then award one of several special features which will either include random Wild Symbols, Stacked Wild Reels, Multipliers or Expanding Wild Symbols. The Wild Symbols have the ability to substitute all of the symbols in view to generate a new winning combination apart from the Scatter Symbols.
The great thing about this Bonus Feature is that up to three of the special features can be active at any one time and when this happens, the prizes can be really big. If one of the Scatter Symbols does show up while one or more of the special features is active, the new feature that just appeared will be added to the feature inventory metre which is always on display towards the top left hand side of the game window.
The Wish Master™ slot is another great release from NetEnt and if you enjoy playing on this one you may also want to check out another slot from NetEnt which also has a similar themed called Arabian Nights. This one is actually a progressive jackpot slot machine which you can find in more than 100 fully licensed NetEnt casinos. The Wish Master Slot™ should also become more widely available soon and to watch a video of this new slot, press play below…

Playtech’s very latest slot looks quite unlike any other it has ever managed to release in the past. The symbols are laid out in a kind of grid formation, unlike the usual formation and altogether there are five rows, five columns and a total of 25 positions, all of which are littered with different types of sweets. This new slot is called Sweet Party.
A line win can appear vertically or horizontally and you will need five or more of the same matching symbols to form a line win. A line win will not be awarded if it is running diagonally across the screen. If you happen to match 8 or more of the Striped Red & White Candy Canes, you will win a percentage of the Progressive Jackpot depending on how much you wagered on that winning spin.
The value of the progressive jackpot is always on display towards the top right hand side of the game window and this will automatically change to correspond with your stake. You will notice the value of the jackpot change each time you adjust your stake. The lowest cost for one spin is 1.00 coin and the maximum cost per spin is fixed at 10.00 coins.
At the time of writing, the lowest valued jackpot is worth just over £14,355.70. The next highest jackpot is worth almost £29,000.00. The second largest jackpot is currently worth almost £72,000.00 and the largest of the four accumulating prize pools is worth more than £143,561.00+. AT the time of writing you can ONLY play on this slot in the real cash mode.
There are very few player controls to worry about on this slot. You just need to select your stake and then hit spin. You can also set the Autoplay Feature to play up to as many as 100 autoplays. There are NO Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols or Bonus Symbols and therefore there are NO second screen Bonus Rounds, Picking Bonuses, Click Me Bonuses or any other similar bonus features. It also doesn’t have a Gamble Feature.
It is a really simple game to play on, but if you are looking for a slot with plenty of action, you won’t find it here. Apart from the fact that it has some really big prizes to play for, it’s a fairly mediocre slot which can quickly become boring. The fact that the lowest bet per round is fixed at a minimum of 1.00 may also put some players off.
It has some colourful graphics and great sounds, but it probably won’t become one of Playtech’s most famous slots. It can be launched over Playtech’s instant flash casino platform and from within their download client and it can now be found in several fully licensed Playtech powered casinos.
