We take a look at what we know about the 5 new NetEnt slots out in January, February and March 2018 from the biggest provider of all.
Love them, be disappointed by them, however you feel about NetEntertainment, chances are you’ve got at least one of their slot machines in your favourite list.
Why? Because even though their release of exciting slot games isn’t as consistent as it use to be, they still easily give us some of the best slot machines of the year.
After all, who else could come up with the brilliant Finn and The Swirly Spin slot game?
With all this in mind, we’ve got a list of all the exciting game releases for early 2018. Here is everything we know.

We’ve actually got a whole load of information on these two, including a couple of videos to show you.
So let’s get right to it as there is a lot to cover with 3 months worth of games.
Fans of the original Twin Spin mobile game, rejoice! What you have here is the sequel you never asked for.
Whilst it may be hard for some to understand why you’d need to improve on one of the most popular NetEntertainment slots of all time, you can’t deny that there is something exciting about this.
The name implies that it’s an improvement on the first, but have they changed it beyond recognition?
At first glance, we have to say no. You still get the same twin reel feature which can expand to cover all 6 (not just 5) reels.

But more importantly, they’ve added the Cluster Pays function, where 9 or more symbols touching will create a cluster of wins.
Hit or Miss: We think it’s going to be a hit – maybe not as big as the original, but definitely a hit.
We’ve actually written about this one at length in our Phantom’s Curse preview, but here’s a quick overview anyway:
We’ve been waiting almost 6 months for this one to be released, so the real question is: was it worth the wait?
Part of the Universal Monsters Series of slots
And with 40 paylines, a click me feature, free spins, and one re-spin bonus, this is probably the most traditional of the new 2018 slot releases.
Hit or Miss: Honestly, it’s not the most exciting of themes or gameplay, so we will wait till it’s out for a full verdict.
February looks like an interesting month as a game that needs a little more attention gets the attention of the world world.
And by no more, we simply mean no longer exclusive to Mr Green Mobile casino, where it’s been hiding since last summer.
We’ve actually written a full review of the Fruit Spin slot, and couldn’t rave more about it if we tried.
It’s not the most interesting looking mobile casino game, with just a bejewelled fruity theme, but you know what? Sometimes the simplest concepts are the best.
A different way of getting a free spin bonus
More than anything, those three wheels that spin and give you any number of free spins, multipliers and instant wins are the real draw.

That, and the fact that the action in this 40 payline fruit machine by NetEnt comes quickly, thanks to stacked symbols and stacked wilds.
And whilst not perfect, it’s a whole load of fun.
Hit or Miss: Definitely a hit for NetEnt once every online casino player out there gets to have a spin.
For those who don’t know, the game studios NetEntertainment are based out of Sweden.
To be fair, so are many casino game software companies nowadays (ie. Play’n GO, Quickspin, etc…), but NetEnt were probably the originals, with the likes of Microgaming based in the UK, IGT in the US and Playtech… everywhere.
They were also, probably, the first to make Vikings a recurrent theme in slot games, thanks to their amazing Jackpot game The Hall of Gods slot.
We know very little about this mysterious game.
We know that with a name like that, it’s going to be based around those good old Norse gods who live in Asgard.
If you still don’t know what we are talking about, think Thor, Odin, Loki etc… from the Marvel superhero comics and movies, except more vicious.
However, with a name like that, could it be related to the highly popular, and recently released on mobile, Secret of the Stones machine?
We can only hope.
Hit or Miss: With a strong nordic heritage, NetEnt are going to make damn sure this is a hit for them.
Currently there is only one in the books, and we know very little about it, much like the Asgardian Stones mobile slot.
About the only thing we can say for certain is that it will be available to play on Android, iPhone, iPad casinos, because Netent are nothing if not consistent.
Update 1st February 2018: NetEnt have released the video for the new hotline slot! It’s not anything like what we thought it be, but we’ll get a preview out soon. Watch this space.
Not a bad name for a phone slot, after all, it implies that there’s only one line you need to call if you need a quick spin at a mobile or tablet casino.
Or is it? After all, a hotline isn’t always a good thing. Google defines it as: “a direct telephone line set up for a specific purpose, especially for use in emergencies or for communication between heads of government.”
So unless they are planning on making a slot about the cold war, drugs, or… euh… gambling addiction?
All, to be honest, in poor taste.
It’s the only way that we can think this Swedish casino game studio can go with this one.
Though it has to be said, it would be a shame if they went that way, because they are probably one of the few out there who have kept their portfolio fairly ‘clean’ of semi-naked ladies.
Now you might think a little sexiness is no bad thing, but in a post-Weinstein world, isn’t it better to come up with imaginative themes?
And hey, let’s be fair, we could be totally wrong and they might yet surprise us. There’s a reason why we play the games and don’t make them.
Hit or Miss: Who knows? With a name like that, it could go either way.
These first three months look interesting, and we have lots of information on 3 of the 5 slots.
Personally, Twin Spin Deluxe gets our vote, because how could you not get excited about putting together two great features (twin reels and cluster pays) in one mobile game?
But, if we were going to play it safe, we’d have to admit that Fruit Spin would probably win, namely because we’ve played it and we know it’s good.
And for a short time early, until January 2018, you get 20 free spins no deposit at Mr Green casino on this online slot, courtesy of yours truly.
