Realtime Gaming (RTG), Betsoft Gaming, Microgaming, IGT Interactive and Net Entertainment recently launched some impressive new slots, but the most talked about slots were the two Game of Thrones slots from Microgaming and The Invisible Man slot from Net Entertainment (NetEnt). IGT Interactive launched a brand new concept slot called Bubble Craze. This fun new slot awards prizes based on how many symbols appear grouped together.
RTG’s latest slot is called The Naughty List. This one has a Christmas theme with 5 reels and 50 winning paylines and it has two exciting bonus features. One is a simple picking round which takes place on a second screen away from the reels and the other bonus is a Free Spins Bonus Round. The latest slot from Betsoft Gaming has a science fiction theme with 5 reels and 10 winning paylines. This new Betsoft Gaming slot is called Mega Gems and its main feature is the Expanding/Stacked Wild Symbol which appears on the centre reel and when this appears it triggers the Re-Spin Feature.
“We are confident that the glossy high-tech aesthetic style will appeal to a massive audience. Such a beautiful game, in our signature true 3D cinematic animation style, with so many exciting features, is destined to be a shining success,” said the Head of Product Development at Betsoft Gaming, Anthony Locke.
Two of the biggest titles to have arrived in casinos were the new Game of Thrones slot machines from Microgaming. These new slots arrived just a few weeks after the new Max Damage slot machine was launched. “We revealed our licensing agreement for the Game of Thrones series in February, and anticipation for the game's launch has been building ever since. Such is the power of the Game of Thrones brand,” said Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever.
These two new Game of Thrones online slot machines both have identical Scatter Symbols and Wild Symbols and they also have the same special features and bonus rounds. The only difference between the two is the payline structure. One slot has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines. This one accepts a wager from as little as 0.15 coins per spin and the other version has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. The lowest cost for one spin on this new slot is 0.30 coins.
Three or more Scatter Symbols showing up in any position across the reels will trigger the main Free Spins Bonus Selection and this is where you get to choose which bonus round you would prefer to win prizes from. You can choose anywhere from 8 Free Spins with a 5X Multiplier up to 18 Free Spins with a 2X Multiplier. The four bonus options include Baratheon, Lannister, Stark and Targaryen.
The other headline title to have recently arrived in casino was The Invisible Man from NetEnt. “Partnering with Universal Partnerships & Licensing has enabled us to deliver another outstanding slot accessible by desktop and mobile devices. The Invisible Man showcases a great player and gaming experience of a very popular title and story,” said the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Simon Hammon.
This exciting new slot has Walking Wild Symbols, Re-Spins, a Free Spins Bonus Round and two other Bonus Features which will only ever trigger from inside the main Free Spins Bonus. This new action & feature packed slot from Netent has a massive 200,000 coin jackpot to play for and it can now be found in several fully licensed online casinos.

Some brand new online slot machines recently arrived in casinos and the two that we will be looking at here include Cosmic Fortune from Net Entertainment (NetEnt) and White King from Playtech. Speaking about one of these new games was the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Simon Hammon;
“Cosmic Fortune™ is an action-packed space journey that leaves players wanting more and more of this mysterious intergalactic trip. It’s the first time we’ve included five Jackpots as we continue to drive the online casino market forward.” We extracted these comments from NetEnt’s official website. This new NetEnt slot has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines and it has an exciting science fiction theme.
A Free Spins Bonus Round will trigger when three or more of the Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels. When the last Free Spin has played out you will then get the chance to take part in a fun side game. All you have to do is hope that the marbles fall in to the Jackpot Collect Cup to reach the Jackpot Bonus Round where you can play to win one of the five progressive jackpots.
This game also has Wild Symbols which can substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbols, plus it also has an Avalanche™ feature which can generate multiple winning combinations. Each time a line win occurs, the winning symbols which formed that line win will be replaced with new symbols and this can trigger even more ‘avalanches’.
The new Playtech slot, White King, has an African/Royalty/Lion theme with 5 reels and 40 winning paylines. Although this is NOT a progressive jackpot slot, some huge prizes can be won from within the Free Spins Bonus Round. This bonus round is actually called the Majestic Night Free Games Bonus. The Wild Symbol on this slot is the White Lion King and this can appear stacked to fill an entire reel.
These Wild Symbols can substitute all of the symbols apart from the Scatter Symbols and they can land on any of the reels. The Scatter Symbols can only ever land on reels 2, 3 and 4 and when three show up, you will instantly receive a prize of 5 Free Spins. More Free Spins can be retriggered an infinite number of times.
Some of the best NetEnt casinos include Mr Green Casino, bgo Vegas, Ladbrokes Games, Bet365 Vegas, Casumo Casino, Casino Euro and Betfair Arcade and some of the best Playtech powered casinos include Paddy Power Casino, Bet365 Casino, Mansion Casino, Omni Casino and Casino.com.
