We all know how exciting the release of a new online slot game can be, don’t we? It’s pretty much a given that we’ll all be clambering to check out the newest games from our favourite developers. Of course, it’s not always possible to know or remember when a software provider will be releasing a new game. That’s why we’ve got a few details here for you to check out. This way, you can keep an eye on the slots that are being released in September of 2018. Not only that, but we consider these slots to be the best ones for upcoming release. Let’s find out more about them, shall we.
Street Magic by Play’n Go
Play’n Go may not necessarily be the company that sits atop the ladder for graphic design in its slots, but it’s certainly up there with the best of them when it comes to entertainment. Street Magic is set to be released on September 13 and it really drives home the theme of entertainers providing their magical abilities to people on the streets. The game features five reels and four rows in total, while 20 pay lines are available to wager on. Players can bet up to €100 per spin on it, and it also includes one or two special features as well.
Symbols in the game are all quite relevant to the overall theme, with imagery of card tricks and hypnotist watches all appearing on the reels. The main character symbol of the slot is the magician performing his acts. He is the game’s wild symbol, but also operates as a scatter at the same time. This means that he can substitute in winning combinations first of all, and this becomes a sticky wild in the process. Additionally, if two of the scattered wild appear anywhere, you’ll trigger one of three random Magician Performance features. These are the Wild Shuffle, Expanding Man and Transporting Man. Freespins are triggered when the scattered wild symbol appears on reels one, three and five, giving you 8, 10 or 12 freespins, respectively.
Double Stacks by Netent
Also set to be released on September 24 is Double Stacks from Netent. We’re already very much aware of how strong the graphics are from this developer, and Double Stacks simply serves to reinforce that. This one will utilise very retro imagery though, including symbols of plums, watermelons and cherries. Of course, they’re only present with the very high-quality graphics of the developer, giving you a visually stunning slot from the get-go. It’s another five reel and three row game for you to play, also containing 10 pay lines. Playing it will allow you to bet up to €200 per spin and has an RTP rating so far of 96.1%.
The game brings back vibes of Twin Spin and other such games from Netent, having many similar symbols. It also contains a Double Stacks Feature, which activates when a reel stops and all the symbols on it are of the same sort. This means that they will all count as two icons, providing double the amount of the pay-out. Like the others on this list, the game has a freespins round too, which activates whenever three, four or five scatters come into view anywhere. 30 freespins is the maximum amount given for this and wild symbols will appear in stacks during the round.
Wolf Hunters by Yggdrasil Gaming
Wolf Hunters is set to be released on September 24 and it comes courtesy of the powerhouse developer known as Yggdrasil. You can always expect to have a good time when accessing one of this developer’s slots. The theme of this game is, of course, hunters seeking out werewolves to kill. It all comes with a very gothic setup, including various icons of traps to ensnare werewolves. It utilises Yggdrasil’s usual high-quality graphics to ensure that you have a very entertaining time while playing. The layout itself is very standard though, offering five reels and three rows up. Gamers can place bets between €0.20 and €100 per spin across its 20 fixed pay lines.
You’ll also get the chance to witness one or two special features come into play with this game, starting with the wild icon. This one can substitute for other symbols in order to help you with the creation of wins and landing at least one of these will also provide you with a single re-spin. Additionally, each wolf symbol that appears will trigger a battle with a random hunter. If the hunter wins the fight, then the wolf symbol becomes a wild. Freespins are also present in the game, in the form of three different modes! There’s the Slayer Freespins, Scatter Freespins and Rage Freespins.
Wicked Tales: Dark Red by Microgaming
We’re all aware of the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, right? Well, how about witnessing a dark take on that very same story? Fortunately, you can do just that by playing this Microgaming slot once it’s released on September 26. The game is actually born from the collaboration between Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios, and it features five reels and a total of 25 pay lines. Symbols appearing on its reels include those of the wolf, the hunter and Red herself, which are joined by others like the often-seen playing card icons. But, it’s not all about the base gameplay. This one has some intriguing special features, too.
First of all, Wicked Tales: Dark Red features a wild symbol, which is present in the form of a full moon. There’s nothing so unique about the process behind this symbol – it basically stands in for all others on the reels. However, there’s also the addition of the Wandering Reels and Jumbo Blocks. The former of these is a group of three reels and four rows that spin together, moving to the left and right randomly in the process. These reels also contain Jumbo Blocks, which are present in 3×4 size. There’s also the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus round, triggered by the appearance of three full moon symbols. This wheel triggers a cash reward or a bonus round – potentially both. Freespins are also available to trigger, with nine of them being provided via the bonus wheel.
The Wild 3 by NextGen Gaming
Not one to be outdone, NextGen Gaming is set to release The Wild 3 at the end of the month, September 30. It’s a slot that features a standard layout of five reels and three rows, and it also features 10 pay lines, although it has a lot more to offer up than it first seems. It’s quite buzzing with inbuilt features. The theme behind the game is like a cartoon twist on the Wild West. Three sheriffs in the form of the raccoon “El Loco”, the coyote “Five Star” and the bull “T-Bone” are basically set to defend their town of Peaceville against evil outlaws. So, you can pretty much expect to see saloon doors, rodeo signs and other such Wild West imagery running through this one.
The game comes with three wild symbols, too, which relate to each of the three sheriffs. These operate in the standard way, substituting for all other symbols to help form wins. However, they each have their own bonus perks as well, being able to replace other icons on the reels. Should any of the three wild symbols show up on the middle reel of the game, The Wild 3 Feature begins. This comes with a Super Bet button for you to use, if you so wish. Alongside this, there’s a Rob the Rich feature for you to trigger, giving you the chance to click on money bags for prizes. The Lock ‘n’ Load Re-spins and Free Spins is another addition, giving you five freespins of the reels when two bonus symbols appear on the second and fourth reels and a wild on reel three. In short, The Wild 3 is stuffed with appealing features to entertain you.
