New games making a splash in 2017
Tuesday, 14 February, 2017
Welcome to the Year of the Rooster! Kerching is celebrating Chinese New Year, with Asian slots taking centre stage.
Lightening Box’ Astro Cat is an oriental delight. A five-reel slot with an unusual structure, it has 1296 possible ways to win. The Astro Cat of the title is a Japanese Maneki Neko or ‘beckoning cat’, which are thought to promote prosperity.
In January, we also gained two slots inspired by the Chinese New Year, Golden and Gong Xi Fa Cai.
Since 2017 is the year of the rooster, Golden’s hen-house setting is particularly appropriate.
Created by NextGen Gaming this charming little game depicts cheery chickens and a golden rooster. The latter is the wild symbol, and triggers the bonus free spins round.
The game’s real selling point, however, is its huge RTP OF 97.222%.
For a more traditional Chinese New Year slot, look no further than Gong Xi Fa Cai. Literally translating to ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese, this vibrant IGT slot brings all the colour and fun of the festival to life.
Free spins, multipliers and a progressive jackpot only add to the game’s considerable appeal.
There was much excitement in the Kerching camp, as the third instalment of the Rainbow Riches series arrived from SG Interactive.
Going live on January 12th, the fantastic Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold was an immediate hit.
Retaining the Irish charm and iconic leprechaun of the original, the newest edition to the series offers colossal reels and additional bonus features.
Other new releases included Elk Studios’ Spanish-style slot, Wild Toro.
Revolving around a flamboyant matador and a heroic bull, this feisty little game provides 178 ways to win, combined with two inventive bonus games.
Finally, we head to Ancient Greece, with NetEnt’s Divine Fortune.
This visually stunning slot boasts a wealth of features, both in-game and bonus. From ‘Wild on Wild’ to the ‘Jackpot Bonus’ everything is geared towards enhancing the player experience and creating more chances to win.
There are lots of new slots to cast your eye over, from variations on traditional casino games to Extreme Live Gaming, with many more to come.
If none of the new games grab you, you can always rely on an old favourite. Check out the full selection in the games lobby.
