5 freshest slots to ring in Spring

Winter is NOT coming! Finally, the end of the cold season is in sight, and we can bid a not-so-fond farewell to the freezing nights and miserable days. We know that there those people out there who will talk about log fires, and mulled wine, and winter wonderland, and snow on the mountains and all we can say is – ‘TSEK!

We have Africa in our blood and it’s the Africa of hot, sunny days not the darn dismal doldrums of cursing and shivering between the bed and the shower, between the shower and the cupboard, between the bedroom and the kitchen, you get the chilly picture.

But Spring is almost here! We’re so excited! And yes, we know that the 1st of September is not, technically, Spring Day (that’s actually officially on the 22nd of September) but we’re gonna go ahead and celebrate all the new buds on the trees and the grass turning from crunchy brown to soft and green and the little birdies chirping and all that awesome Spring stuff.

And, to celebrate the new growth season, we’re going to tell you about 5 fresh, new slots games that the CasinoPlay crew recommend to all our South African online casino fans and online casino game aficionados. These are 5 of the latest, newest, shiniest, and most exciting games that we can find for all of you and that we know you can play at trusted online South African casinos like PlayLive, Jackpot.co.za, Africasino, Casino.com, and Springbok Casino.

Enjoy – and HAPPY SPRING!

Rock the Reels Megaways™ – Iron Dog

If there’s a slot to get your head banging – this is the one.

Iron Dog released Rock the Reels on the 19th of July 2021 and it’s already starting to make waves. This indie studio has brought us a fantastically fun reel that combines a number of our favourite things: rock music, Megaways™ slots, cascading reels, and very cool Thundercats meets Heavy Metal-style graphics. This 6-reel Megaways™ slot has a high variance so play wisely.

Apart from the rocking soundtrack, and the great graphics, you have all the Megaways™ features you expect like 117,649 ways to win, cascading reels, Free Spins, Multipliers, Wilds, and Scatters.

The animal band members are the triggers for the bonus features:

  • Warthog the bassist transforms from 2 to 4 random symbols on reels 1 – 4 into Wilds
  • Octopus the drummer transforms from 2 to 4 random symbols on reels 1 – 4 into the random matching symbol from reel 1
  • Flamingo the guitarist transforms from 3 to 4 random symbols on reels 1 – 3 into the top-paying cougar symbol
  • Lion the lead singer transforms 2 random symbols on reels 2 – 3 into 2X multiplier Wilds

Rock the Reels Megaways™ is a new spin on some established properties like music and Megaways™ and it brings a fresh new feel to gameplay.

Hugo Carts logo

Hugo Carts – Play’n GO

Hugo is Europe’s version of Mario (yes, we know Mario is ‘Italian’, but the property is very much created, owned, and operated by a Japanese company). Hugo the Troll is a hero across multiple game and cartoon channels, and Play’n GO have brought him and his crew to life in the casino game world. While there are a number of entries in the Hugo casino game genre, this one – Hugo Carts released on the 26th of August 2021 – is definitely in pole position. Awesome graphics, a great soundtrack, and an imminently playable 5-reel slots game with 1,024 ways to win will have any slots lover rooting for Hugo as he chases through a mine to collect the treasure!

Multipliers, Wilds, Scatters, and Free Spins await those who choose to help Hugo and Hugolina (his babe) thwart the nefarious baddie Scylla and trigger those awesome bonuses:

  • Hugolina adds 1 to 5 symbol multipliers with values of up to x10
  • Hugo sprinkles 2 to 5 golden nugget Wilds in random positions on the reels
  • Scylla creates 5 to 9 mystery symbols that transform into matching pay symbols

Hugo Carts, as with the majority of Play’n GO games, is superbly presented, and is a wild ride highly recommended for our fans.

Provider: Play’n GO

Titan’s Rising – Spinomenal

Spinomenal are fast getting a reputation for solid, thrilling games that are incredibly well designed and packed, like PACKED, with features. Titan’s Rising brings us characters from the Greek pantheon that are not your usual Zeus and Thor – they are the predecessors to the Gods: the Titans Cronus, Gaia, Cyclop, and Uranus.

And boy, do they pack a punch.

Titan’s Rising was released the 2nd of August 2021 and we predict great things, especially when you consider not just the quality of the game and the immersive elements that keep you spinning, but the absolutely bonkers features: Buy Feature, Wilds, Stacked Wilds, Shifting Wilds, Expanding Wilds, Expanding Symbols, Free Spins, Extra Wilds, Scatters, and more.

There are so many ways to get lost in this game but the Titan’s themselves are the triggers you’re looking for. Hit 3 scattered bonus symbols and you will be taken to the Free Spins Journey where you follow the cosmos and the 4 different Free Spins modes.

  • Winning symbols re-spin
  • Cronus Shifting Stacked Wild
  • Cyclop Expanding Stacked Wild
  • Uranus Sticky Extra Wild

This is a phenomenal 5-reel slots game, filled with those little details that really get you involved in the story and the game.

Provider: Spinomenal

Reels: 5

Paylines: 50

RTP: 95.58%

Features: Buy Feature, Wilds, Stacked Wilds, Shifting Wilds, Expanding Wilds, Expanding Symbols, Free Spins, Extra Wilds, Scatters

Agent of Hearts

Agent of Hearts – Play’n GO

Play’n GO launched Agent of Hearts on the 19th of July 2021 and we must say, it has a storyline as intriguing and colourful as anything Alice’s Wonderland could ever present.

You are tasked to track down the stolen keys to the safe containing the Queen’s heart – and you have 4 different agents to help you: the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar, the Cheshire Cat, and the Dormouse.

The artwork is trippy, as can be expected from anything related to this wild story, and the action is intense thanks to the cluster pay mechanic. Think Candy Crush with a healthy dose of LSD.

And there are features galore!

While the base game only has Wilds to add to your cluster wins, when you do happen to unlock one of the Agents, you are treated to a wild ride!

  • Cupcake Splat– the Dormouse runs from the top of the grid to the bottom, leaving a cupcake trail behind him. Cupcakes then explode and either remove the symbols beneath or transform them into another random symbol type.
  • Smokin’ Phat– the Caterpillar blows 1-3 trails of smoke across the reels in diagonal lines. Symbols beneath the trails are either removed or transformed into other symbols.
  • Grinning Cat– a big purple Cheshire Cat grin appears over the grid. All symbols beneath are removed or transformed into another random symbol.
  • Mad Hat– 6 to 9 Mad Hatter symbols appear on the grid. The Hats remove any adjacent symbols before changing the symbol beneath them into a randomly selected symbol.

Agent of Hearts is a game after our own hearts. It merges great creativity with smooth gameplay and an earworm tune that will get stuck in your head.

Name: Agent of Hearts

Provider: Play’n GO

Reels: 7

Paylines: Cluster wins

RTP: 96.25%

Features: Wilds, Free Spins, and a bunch of custom ones per Agent

Age of Pirates

Age of Pirates – Spinomenal

We mentioned above how Spinomenal is coming of age and this insane online slots game released on the 21st of April 2021 is the perfect example of how this fantastic studio is bringing new and exciting gameplay to the casino games world. Age of Pirates plays almost like a console game it has so many features. It’s about as distant from the classic fruit machine as a pirate galleon is from a rowboat. Think huge bonus rounds that rack up the wins, especially in the Moving Reels Free Spins round.

Age of Pirates is absolutely gorgeous – and absolutely enthralling. Never mind a yo-ho-ho or a bottle of rum, this epic slots game brings Blackbeared, Anne Booney, Jack Rackham, and Mary Read to hi-def life (yes, we know, the names are close but not really an exact X marks the spot). Names aside, there is more to see and do than a chest full of booty. Apart from the already gushed over visuals and epic soundtrack (the storm sequences in the backing art are awesome), it’s the features that had us yarring and looking for an eye patch and cutlass: a nifty buy feature so you can jump straight into the Free Spins Journey and make your way to each pirate on the map, Wilds, Expanding Wilds, Moving Reels Re-Spins, Shifting Expanding Wilds, Win Multipliers, and Extra Wilds are just the start.

  • Jack Rackham Moving Reels – during this free spin mode after each win the game triggers a free re-spin where all the reels move one reel to the right and new reel is revealed on the far left. Re-spin may be retriggered (we literally had like 14 re-spins in a row!).
  • Blackbeared Moving Wilds – during this free spin mode, starting from the far left reel, a stacked Wild symbol moves one reel to the right after each spin.
  • Mary Read Expanding Wilds – during this free spin mode, when a Wild symbol lands, it will expand to fill the entire reel.
  • Anne Booney Extra Wilds – during this free spin mode, while the reels are spinning, 3-6 Wild symbols will appear on the slot and increase your chance to win.

If there is one game that the CasinoPlay crew would urge you to try at PlayLive Casino, Jackpot.co.za, or Africasino – This 5-reel, 50 payline slot is it. As a side note: there is also a later version (released on the 21st of July 2021) with 15 paylines.

Name: Age of Pirates

Provider: Spinomenal

Reels: 5

Paylines: 50

RTP: 96.29%

Features: Wilds, Expanding Wilds, Moving Reels Re-Spins, Free Spins, Shifting Expanding Wilds, Win Multipliers, and Extra Wilds
