New Slot Reviews, Wheel of Fortune and More

There are new slots being released all of the time, so much so that it is hard to keep track of them all. In this article we’re not going to focus on the new releases from the biggest developers, as these can take some time to make it to the casinos and some of them never do. Instead, we’re going to focus on the newest games just making their way onto the biggest online casinos.

Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin

This game is currently being promoted by a handful of top casinos, including Sky Vegas. It is a spin-off of the popular Wheel of Fortune game, but in truth it leaves a lot to be desired and is not really anything like the game show of the same name. There are some cool features in this slot, but ultimately they are not enough to make up for weak bonus rounds and graphics. The essence of the game is a multi-leveled interface, with reels that hold a different number of lines, some with three, some with five. There are scatter symbols that kick-start an instant feature, playing out right there on the reels, and there are also bonus symbols that open up an interesting bonus round, albeit one that could have been better. Perhaps the key feature here is that you technically only need one reel to land a bonus, even though three symbols are needed. This is because there are multiple symbols on the same reel and if you’re lucky enough, you can fill half the game with bonus symbols alone, meaning you’ll be in for one huge bonus round payout.

Spinner Takes it All

A very interesting little slot that uses a game show theme, with a quirky and somewhat freaky game show host making an appearance throughout. The graphics are simple, but well put together, and it makes for a clean and smooth game. This is a breath of fresh air when you consider that despite having access to so much great tech and being able to create expansive and beautiful games, many developers opt for a simple, old-school appeal. This is a fictional game show, but to all intents and purposes it is Wheel of Fortune, one of the most popular game shows in the world. The bonus round will take you to the famous wheel, and there are also a few other features hidden within the game.

Monopoly Big Event

There are a number of Monopoly games doing the rounds and whilst we have enjoyed many of them, this is not one of them. The game is very simple and somewhat dull and there is very little going on. Monopoly slots are famed for their unique features and bonus rounds, but there is not much of that going on here and our advice is to give this one a miss when you come across it.

Ooh Aah Dracula

Created by Barcrest, this game has been marketed heavily by a number of online casinos. The developers are clearly very proud of their creation and the online casinos are doing all they can to get people playing it. Not without reason either, because this is a very fun game and one that has had a lot of time and effort put into it. The graphics are cartoony but clean and sharp, using a Dracula theme, but with a comical touch. There are only ten pay-lines, but you can play these for as little as $0.01 per line, or $0.10 per spin. There is no option to reduce the number of lines, so this stake is the minimum. Ooh Aah Dracula has some high paying symbols, including one that offers as much as 5,000x — not bad for a base game payout. There is also a Hi Roller option, scatter symbols for a free spins round and a bonus round. This is not the best game we have played this year, but we can see why the casinos are pushing it.

Dr. Frantic Monster Spins

We loved the first Dr. Frantic game, which had a re-spin feature that allowed you to keep adding to pay-lines and could eventually lead to a full house of lines and symbols, even when you initially had just a small line. There was also a neat bonus round. We were therefore very excited when we heard about this new release, which used the same aesthetics and the same re-spin feature. However, we were in for a disappointment as this game is nothing like the first and leaves a lot to be desired. The payout percentage seems a lot lower and our luck was down over the course of extended play, but that’s not our main grief. The main issue we had is that the bonus round simply isn’t very good and whilst they opted for a unique feature, aiming to create something special again, they failed miserably. This slot goes to show that sequels should also be treated with suspicion.

Miss White

This game has been around for a couple of months now, but some casinos are only just adding it to their collection. Miss White follows on from Miss Red, and is more or less identical, except for some changes in the styling. The Expanding Symbol feature is still here, which made Miss Red very popular, and it works just as well on Miss White. The main bonus round is still only a free spin round, and one that is almost impossible to trigger, and there are no random features, but this is still a quirky, quaint and very fun slot to play. If you’re looking for a slot that takes what Miss Red did and then pushes the boundaries, then this is not it. If you’re simply looking for another way to play Miss Red, and if you prefer Snow White and the Seven Dwarves to Little Red Riding Hood (the themes of these two slots) then Miss White could be just what you are looking for.
