Lots of exciting new online slot machines recently arrived in casinos and are now widely available in the real money mode and in the free play demo mode. Betsoft Gaming, IGT Interactive, Microgaming, NetEnt and Playtech all launched some exiting new slots and Playtech also launched a brand new Live Dealer Casino Game called Live Prestige Roulette.
“Playtech offers cutting-edge, value-added live casino solutions to the industry’s leading operators including the leading live platform, four global networks, and best-of-breed products and games combining to create the most authentic and complete omni-channel live gaming experience available on the market today,” said the Playtech COO, Shimon Akad.
To celebrate almost 30 years since the film was originally released, Playtech also launched an exciting new branded slot machine called Top Gun. This new slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin with F-14 Fighter Jet Scatter Symbols and Top Gun Logo Wild Symbols. There’s a Free Spins Bonus to win big prizes from and this will trigger when three or more Scatter Symbols show up anywhere in view, plus you can also win big during the Dogfight Wilds Feature. This randomly triggered feature can add up to 15 new Wild Symbols to the reels for some huge winning combinations. This Dogfight Wilds Feature can trigger during normal play and during the Free Spins Bonus Round.
“This iconic movie was the ideal choice for a premium branded game and is sure to be a hit for all our casino licensees and their players across all channels and devices, delivering, as we do with every title and every product, the ultimate gaming experience,” added the COO. We managed to obtain all of these comments from the official Playtech website.
Microgaming also launched several new online slot machines such as Basketball Star and Lucky Twins and speaking about these two new games was the Microgaming Head of Casino Games, Mike Hebden. He said, “This month we’re adding to the collection of sporting games we offer with Basketball Star. Packing the excitement of a major league final, we’re confident the game will be a crowd-pleaser. Plus its simultaneous release ensures players are able to enjoy the game no matter their preferred playing device, adding to the industry’s biggest portfolio of mobile games available to our operators.”

Two brand new online slot machines from Microgaming both arrived simultaneously in casinos on Wednesday 9th September, 2015. The new Rugby Star slot machine was launched across Microgaming’s Flash, download, Quickfire and mobile casino platforms and the new Lucky Zodiac slot was launched across Microgaming’s Flash and download platforms.

“Two very different games launching in September but both will appeal to a wide variety of players. Rugby Star is the latest in a series of sporting games timed around renowned worldwide events; we expect this to be just as popular as the others in the series. And with the High 1 Zodiac symbol swapping every year, Lucky Zodiac is dynamic and refreshing, standing out from other slots with fixed symbol sets,” said Microgaming’s Head of Casino Games, Mike Hebden.
Rugby Star has been launched to coincide with the 2015 Rugby World Cup and some of the other similar games in this series that you may also want to check out include Football Star and Cricket Star. The new Rugby Star online slot machine has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. Big line wins can occur from just one paid spin thanks to the Rolling Reels™ feature which is active during normal play and during the Free Spins Bonus.
The Wild Symbol is the Rugby Star logo and this will appear stacked to fill entire reels on any of the 5 reels.

NetEnt & IGT Interactive both launched a brand new online slot machine in August 2015. The latest slot from NetEnt is called Dazzle Me and the latest IGT Interactive slot machine is called Samba de Frutas. The new NetEnt slot has 5 reels and 76 winning paylines and the new IGT slot has 5 reels and 100 winning paylines.
“With its vibrant design and unique reel layout, Dazzle Me is a glittering addition for NetEnt,” said the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Simon Hammon. He then finished by saying, “Players will be able to enjoy great features, such as Dazzling Wild Reels, whether they’re playing at home or on-the-go.” We obtained these words from the official NetEnt website.
On the new Dazzle Me slot from NetEnt, the Scatter Symbol is the Free Spins Symbol and the Wild Symbol is the Diamond. The Wild Symbol will substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Free Spins Scatter Symbol. Dazzling Wild Reels can randomly appear during normal play and this will turn certain reels into completely Wild Reels. Reels 1 to 5 can be transformed into Dazzling Wild Reels.
3, 4 or 5 Scatter Symbols landing in any position across the reels will trigger 8, 12 or 16 Free Spins, respectively, and Free Spins can also be retriggered. The other special feature is the Linked Reels Feature. When this triggers, reels 1 to 4 can become linked, and they will spin the exact same symbols. Multiple linked reels can generate some huge line wins.
The new IGT slot, Samba de Frutas, has a fun Carnival/Samba/Fruit theme and the main bonus round on this slot is a Free Spins Bonus. This will instantly trigger when three or more of the Maracas Bonus Symbols land in any position on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the three middle reels). Also keep an eye out for the Samba de Frutas Wild Symbols which can appear stacked to fill an entire reel from top to bottom.
Both of these new online slot machines have really wide betting ranges. In other words, these new slots are suitable for low rollers, mid rollers and high rollers alike. These games are both available in the real money mode and in the free play mode, they both have fantastic prize structures and they can both be launched instantly in your web browser, no download required. If you want to play on either of these new games now, head over to Mr Green Casino.
