The Newest Slots to Try in 2020
It’s a new year, a new decade, and that means a shedload of new slots for Kerching users to enjoy. With so many available though, we thought we’d narrow down the list for you, so, here’s our selection of the newest slots to play in 2020.
Ozzy Osbourne Slots
We’ll start with a slot game dedicated to one of the greatest rock and rollers to have ever lived; the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne. Now, for those who don’t know, he’s a humungous star who pioneered rock as a genre in the 20th century, becoming known for his crazy antics and gothic persona. This title does a good job of translating his whole aesthetic onto the reels, with dark, horror imagery mixed with musical references and stylised flames; in short, it’s a truly rocking slot.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a NetEnt slot without some nifty features, the first of which is the bonus bet, which will double your stake in exchange for enhanced bonus rounds. The other bonus is triggered by landing the scatter symbol twice, but it’s not a single feature. Instead, you’ll get a feature spinner and a multiplier spinner, which will decide what benefits you get. There is also a free spin round that can be activated by landing three scatters, which can give you that extra bit of value.
While we think the cutting edge, feature-filled extravaganzas that are modern slots are pretty fun, sometimes we like to play a game with a more classic feel. Developer Pragmatic Play has a knack of making simple, yet entertaining slots and Fire Strike is no different. Let’s start with the interface, which is very representative of the creative approach taken to this game. There are no cinematic visuals or 3D graphics, in fact, there isn’t much outside of the reels and various buttons. However, the rich colour scheme, pop-out symbol style, and win animations are all top-notch, and this results in a crisp, clear display that is easy to navigate.
There are no ‘bonuses’ to speak of exactly, but the game does include the Fire Strike symbol, which can award some huge multipliers. Land more than six of these in a single spin, and you will get one of these totals, with the maximum number of icons being 15. If you manage that, you’ll be treated to a massive sum worth 25000x your stake, so it can provide quite the payout, if you’re lucky.
Finn’s Golden Tavern
This sequel to one of NetEnt’s most popular games is sure to delight fans of the original, as it contains many of the whimsical visuals and cracking bonus features that made the first such a success. One thing that may upset long-time fans is that the titular swirly spin from the first doesn’t return. However, the Avalanche Reels and Cluster Pays mechanics do, and they can both be quite good for your payouts. The former will blow away any symbols you’ve landed in winning combinations, before replacing them with new ones which could make new wins. The latter means the game doesn’t use paylines, instead, you’ll win when you land clusters of grouped symbols.
That’s not all though, as NetEnt has positively loaded this game up with bonuses. You get randomly triggering ones like the Coin feature, which will turn all the low-value symbols in play into one identical coin icon before calculating the new payout. There is also a free spins mode, which will offer five spins, plus a multiplier metre that will get progressively better as you land wilds.
Dragon’s Fire Megaways
When the original version of this slot was first released, it proved to be one of Red Tiger Gaming’s best games. It was praised for its engaging mix of bonus features, great visuals, and potentially high symbol payouts, so it ticked every box on the slot checklist. Since then though, the developer has ported it to the popular Megaways engine, so now it has even more to offer. If you’re unfamiliar, this will give you a different number of paylines and symbols on each spin, which can prove a real boost if you’re fortunate. You’ll also get cascading Reels, which will blast away any symbols involved in a win before replacing them with new ones, which can form subsequent winning combinations.
There are also several features carried over from the first, including the Fire Blast, which will randomly add up to four wilds or two scatter symbols, which can obviously be a great help. On top of that, every reaction you get in the Cascading Reels mechanic will increase a multiplier by 1x to a limit of 50x, which makes that specific feature even more generous. Finally, there is a free spins mode, which is triggered by landing the scatter at least three times. A Pick Me minigame will ensue, where you will have to choose from several Dragon Eggs, which will then decide how many spins you get. The multiplier is in place for this round and will stick with you when you go back to the base game.
The Great Chicken Escape
Before you ask, this isn’t a weird Chicken Run spin-off, it’s a new property by the guys at IGT. There’s a ton of features to be found in this game, including three randomly triggering bonuses that could help your payout. The first is Guard Dog Wilds, which will see four to nine wilds randomly added to the board. The Chicken Run Wilds is next, which will add two to four fully stacked wilds onto the reels. The final one is the Care Package, which will see a wooden crate smash the reels, dispensing several golden eggs as it does. These will then occupy random positions, before turning into an identical symbol.
Several bonuses can be triggered by landing at least three scatter symbols. A ‘Pick Me’ minigame will ensue, where you will have to choose a chest, with the selected one revealing a cash prize, a collect icon, or triggering one of the four features. The first of these is Poetry in Motion, where you must advance along a trail by landing wilds, for which you will receive multipliers. The next is the Get Clucky Spins round, which will give you ten spins, plus a multiplier that will increase 1x when a wild lands. There is another spins round too, which will give ten again, but this time, all the wilds you land will be collected and dispensed on the last spin. Finally, there is the Great Escape Big Money bonus, which is another ‘Pick Me’ style round where you could end up with a whopping 5000x your stake payout.
We end with a slot that has not one, but two, developers! A collaboration between Rocksalt Gaming and NetEnt, this fantasy-themed slot sees you travel to an enchanted forest with a group of magical fairies. It’s a theme that has become quite popular in recent years, but the team making this one has done a great job of making it stand out from the crowd. Part of its appeal is undoubtedly down to the bonus features.
Let’s have a look at the free spins round first, which is triggered when you land three of the scatter symbols. You’ll receive ten spins, plus three glass jars will appear on the screen. Activate them and a fairy will fly out before turning into a star. One of the low-value icons will then serve as a wild for the duration. On top of that bonus, if you land a crystal flower in the base game, a meter will begin to fill. Once complete, you will unlock an extra reel, as well as a new icon called the Emerald Wild. These wilds will do the usual job of substituting to form a win but can also land stacked, with multipliers of 2x, 3x, or 4x. They also can replace all the low-value symbols with high-value ones.
