Published: April 18, 2014 | Category: GamesThe very latest online slot machine to arrive in April 2014 from IGT Interactive is an Asian themed slot called Jewel of the Arts. This new IGT slot has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines and it can be launched instantly in your browser. You can practice on this slot in the free play mode or you can play for real cash prizes in the real money mode.
Keep an eye out for Geisha Wild Symbols and Fan Dance Bonus Symbols. When exactly two of the Fan Dance Bonus Symbols appear on reel 3 (the centre reel), you will instantly awarded 2x times your total stake. The Wild Symbol will substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Bonus Symbols and the highest valued symbol on the reels is the Jewel of the Arts logo.
The main bonus on this slot, if you hadn’t already guessed, is called the Fan Dance Bonus and this will trigger only when three bonus symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. This bonus round is a Free Spins bonus round which takes place on a different set of reels and your prizes during this bonus round can be boosted thanks to Locked and Stacked Wild Symbols.
The bonus round will start with reel 2 completely wild. Next, reel 3 will also become completely wild and then finally, reel 4 will also become wild. When all three centre reels are filled with Stacked Wild Symbols, the prizes can be huge. An Extra Spin will also be awarded when the aptly named ‘Extra Spin’ symbol appears on reel 1. That extra spin will also contain the same Locked Wild Symbols as the previous spin.
This is a great new slot from IGT Interactive. It has a popular Asian/Oriental style theme with some impressive background audio & cool sound effects for players to enjoy. This is one of several great slots that IGT Interactive has already been launched in 2014. Others include Dungeons and Dragons – Treasures of Icewind Dale (aka Dungeons & Dragons 2), Vegas, Baby!, Wolf Rising, Western Belles and Black Widow.
Although this slot is still not yet widely available (at the time of writing) it should start to appear in more fully licensed online casinos over the coming months. If you want to play on this game right now, you would need to head over to one of the following great online casinos: Jetbull Casino, Mr Green Casino, Casino Luck or BetVictor Casino.

Some great new online slots have already arrived in April and they are now widely available in the real cash mode and in the free play demo mode. Three of these new slots, Black Widow, Lady Robin Hood and Lucky Streak can now be found at Mr Green Casino, which was recently crowned the Casino Operator of the Year at the International Gaming Awards (IGA).
One of these new online slots is called Black Widow from IGT Interactive. This one has 5 reels and 40 winning paylines and it has a kind of Bunny Boiler/Mystery/Crime theme. The Wild Symbol on this slot is the Black Widow Logo and the Bonus Scatter Symbol is the Potion. All of the symbols on this slot can appear stacked and a Free Spins Bonus Round will trigger when the three centre reels are filled with a total of nine Bonus Scatter Symbols.
Multiple Stacked Symbols appearing next to each other will trigger a Super Stacks Feature and this special feature can award huge prizes. This is a non-downloadable slot which should appeal to most players.
One of the other new slots that recently arrived at Mr Green was actually developed by a company called Bally Technologies. This one has 5 reels and 40 winning paylines. The Wild Symbol is really easy to identify and the Scatter Symbol is the Lady Robin Hood (L.R.H) Logo. There is also a special Target Symbol to keep an eye out for and a Free Spins Bonus Round will trigger when the Scatter Symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 from the same spin.
There’s also a great special feature on this slot called the Arrow Mystery Wild Feature and this can trigger randomly during regular play. Once triggered, Lady Robin Hood will appear in view and she will fire her arrow onto the reels, turning up to 8 symbols into Wild Symbols. This feature seems to trigger quite often and it can be extremely rewarding.
The other new April slot which arrived here at Mr Green casino was a Microgaming slot called Lucky Streak. This is actually classed as a classic fruit machine. This new slot has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines and you can win up to 10,000x times your stake from the Cash Stoppa Feature. If you enjoy traditional slots, you should absolutely love playing on this one.
The two other new slots from Microgaming to keep an eye out for include High Society and Girls with Guns Frozen Dawn, the latter of which is already being called Girls with Guns 2 and is the sequel to Girls with Guns Jungle Heat. You can learn more about these two new Microgaming slots from a previous article dated April 4th, 2014.

Some great new online slots from Microgaming will be arriving later on in the year including epic titles such as Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Game of Thrones and also a trilogy of new Jurassic Park themed slots, but before these arrive, players can look forward to a couple of other new slots.

The Scatter Symbol on this slot is the Euro Sign and three or more of these appearing on the reels will trigger the main Free Spins Bonus Round.
The great thing about this bonus is that you will be given a choice of two different Free Spins modes. One of them offers 10 Free Spins with Super Wild Reels and the other offers 10 Free Spins with 2X to 6X Super Multipliers. You can play for a massive 107,000.00 top prize on this slot and you can even catch a glimpse of the new High Society slot machine by pressing play below…

This latest instalment also has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and the top prize is worth an eye-watering 2,185,000.00 coins.
Some great new features are available on this slot such as the Shootout Bonus, as well as Frozen Wilds™ and Magnetic Wilds™, all of which can generate some huge wins. This looks like an awesome new slot and it should appeal to most players. Press play below to watch a video of the new Girls with Guns slot…
The following comments that were recently made by the Head of Casino at Microgaming, Mike Hebden, were extracted from the official Microgaming website; “As a leader in technology we strive to deliver a seamless experience not only across all platforms but also across all products.”
He also then added, “The release of High Society is a major step for us; the online slot can be enjoyed by all players irrespective of their preferred playing device and no matter what gaming entertainment they choose, whether it be traditional slot play or side games during Poker or Bingo.”
These new slots will arrive any day now and they will be launched across all of Microgaming’s platforms which include Casino, Bingo, Poker, Mobile and Quickfire products.

In March 2014, Net Entertainment (also known as NetEnt) launched its very latest slot. This new slot is called Wild Water and it has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines. It has a surf dude theme, but it could also be classed as a beach themed slot, a summer themed slot or even as a hippy themed slot.
Players can launch this slot instantly in their browser and it is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. Some of the first online casinos to add this new slot to their libraries include top sites such as Mr Green Online Casino, Casumo Casino, Unibet Casino and Tropezia Palace. It should also start to arrive in more NetEnt powered casinos over the coming weeks.
The Wild Symbol on this slot is the Shark Symbol and this will substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbols. The Scatter Symbol is the Surfer. When three or more of these Scatter Symbols show up anywhere on the reels, the free spins bonus round will automatically trigger. During this free spins bonus round, the wild symbol can appear stacked to fill an entire reel on any of the reels.
There are two different bonus features on this slot and they are both basically identical, although one will only ever trigger during regular play (The Surf’s Up Bonus) and the other will only ever trigger during the free spins bonus round (the Surf Team Bonus).
Basically, whenever five of the stacked character symbols (can be any of the surfers) appear across reels 1 to 5, you will be awarded 20x times your stake during regular play and you will receive 200x times your stake during the free spins bonus tound. This bonus can trigger quite often during regular play, but it rarely triggers during the free spins bonus round.
Wild Water is a refreshing new online slot from NetEnt and it is definitely one that we can highly recommend checking out at some point. The prizes can be massive and you can place a bet from as little as 0.20 per spin up to a maximum of 100.00 per spin.
“Players are going to go wild for our latest addition to our superb portfolio of video slots. Our design team has created an innovative offering that brings together the relaxed beach chill and the excitement of huge wins out on the surf,” said NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon. These words came from the official Net Entertainment website.

The Three Musketeers online slot machine was recently released by Playtech and this new slot can now be found in several top Playtech powered casinos. It has 5 reels and 50 winning paylines and it is available in the free play mode and in the real cash mode. The Wild Symbol on this slot is a Stacked Wild Symbol and it can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and there are three individual Scatter Symbols.
One of the Scatter Symbols can trigger the Golden Daggers of Aramis feature. Once triggered, simply choose 1 out of the 2 bags of gold to reveal a cash prize. One of the other Scatter Symbols can trigger the Splendid Sword of Porthos feature and this basically awards 1 Free Re-Spin with one Stacked Wild Reel.
The other Scatter Symbol will trigger a similar bonus feature called Wild Muskets of Athos. You will receive 1 Free Re-Spin with this feature as well, but instead of a Stacked Wild Reel, you will receive randomly distributed Wild Symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. These mini features can trigger during regular play and they are known as The Mighty Musketeers Features.
You can win up to 24 Free Spins on this slot when a Free Games Symbol lands on reels 1 and 5 (the two end reels) and the main bonus feature on this slot is a second screen bonus round which has up to 5 individual levels where you can win bug coin prizes. Each level is a simple picking round and extra prizes will be awarded if you manage to find any of the Queen's Diamonds.
The latest slot from Betsoft Gaming is called More Gold Diggin’. This is a new 3D slot which has 5 cascading reels and 25 winning paylines. An increasing multiplier ranging from 1X up to 5X will be applied to each line win and the Wild Symbols can combine will all other symbols on the reels to help create new line wins.
The TNT Symbols are the Scatter Symbols and when three or more of these appear in view, you will be awarded 15 Free Spins and the increasing multiplier can reach a maximum 15X during this Bonus Round. This slot also has an impressive Double Up Gamble Feature which you can select after each line win.
These two new slots can both be launched instantly in your browser and they are both available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. Some of the great casinos which now have these games available include sites such as Titan Casino and Mr Green Casino and they should start to arrive in more casinos over the coming weeks.
