Casino games, like all other forms of entertainment, are subject to opinion. So, it’s quite difficult to say with authority which new slot games are the best out there at the moment. In saying that, there have been plenty of game releases over the last year or so that are getting rave reviews from players and industry insiders alike.
Five of the UK’s best new slots are listed below. While it’s open to debate, these titles have been proving to be smash hits in recent times and there is no doubting their popularity. Without further ado, here’s the list:
Guns N’ Roses (NetEnt)
Most of the original members of Guns N’ Roses have been taking part in the “Not in this Lifetime” Tour for over two years now. The band has never been far from controversy ever since the release of their debut album, Appetite for Destruction, in 1987. The self-titled slot features real music from the band, including Slash’s iconic guitar riffs. As for the gameplay, the slot has plenty of special features and cool ways to win. There are plenty of slots inspired by rock groups out there, including Jimi Hendrix and Motely Crue, but Guns N’ Roses tops the lot.
The Dark Knight (Playtech)
Was Chris Nolan’s second instalment of the acclaimed trilogy the best superhero movie of all time? That’s a matter of opinion, but the Dark Knight slot is certainly one of the best in the new generation of superhero slots. The main theme of the game is, of course, Batman vs the Joker. That leads to some innovative features, including the Gotham City Free Games Feature. Above all this looms the DC Superheroes Jackpot Game, where you can literally win millions of pounds from a 20p spin.
Jurassic World (Microgaming)
Microgaming developed one of their most popular slot games in the original Jurassic Park, but, like movie franchise, upped the ante the reboot slot. Jurassic World slot is nothing short of spectacular, featuring lots of innovative features. To suit the premise of the larger than life theme, the slot offers some very big ways to win, even when betting small amounts. It’s available at different online casinos for UK players, some of which have incredible welcome offers. Definitely one to check out for fans of the movies.
Ogre Empire (Betsoft)
Unlike the previous titles on this list, Ogre Empire does not feature official clips and imagery. But, as you might be able to guess from the title, the game is, somewhat unashamedly, based on the Shrek movies. That aside, this 3D fairy-tale inspired slot has plenty going for it. It follows a new trend in slot play, offering players two different game modes, Night Day. Both come with special features that can lead to big, big wins.
Danger High Voltage (Big Time Gaming)
There is nothing you can quite put a finger on about Danger High Voltage to say why it’s so great. The graphics are simple and there doesn’t seem to be much happening on screen. However, in a similar manner as say, Tetris, it has a timeless, retro quality. The other tantalising aspect about the slot is the huge wins on offer, especially in the Free Games features.
