Microgaming studios have a whole host of new slot games coming out in January 2021. We take a look and let you know which ones will be worth playing.
Microgaming has released its list of all the new upcoming casino games for January 2021.
Which one stands out from the pack? The Bounty slot and Animals of Africa video slot certainly caught our attention and we will be checking those out the moment they are released.
The Hyperstrike slot released on the 19th Jan looks interesting enough, though mostly because we’ve seen similar mobile slots like it before. And as for the 777 Mega Deluxe slot, we are cautiously excited. It looks great, but will it live up to the hype?
Here’s everything we know about all the new games from the studios that exclusively create slots for Microgaming. All a little different, with different flavours and features, making it an interesting month ahead.
Can’t wait? Then why not head to one of our favourite Microgaming casinos and see what’s currently on offer.
This Wild West slot game looks like it could be great fun, with graphics that pop and take you back to the old American frontier.
The Bounty slot is a 5×3 reel game with 15 paylines and four in-game jackpots. The amount of these jackpots change but range from 20x to an eye-popping 5,000x your bet.
So how do you win these vast sums?
You catch the Bounty Jackpot symbol on reel 5 which will trigger 10 free spins. Your goal then is to collect 6 of the same Bounty Wanted posters to trigger one of the jackpots.
Did we mention you can win more than one jackpot? And that’s not even the best part. The best part is that there’s two ways to win big in this Microgaming slot, as you can also catch the Ambush Free Spins. You’ll get 8 free spins and 2x multiplier, but every time you catch a bullet symbol you’ll get new free spins, the dynamites increase the multipliers.
Can you catch the bounty and win yourself one of 6 jackpots? You’ll have to wait for the 7th of January 2021 to find out.
Excitement level: Pretty good. Like heading to a salon for a drink for the first time, it’s both nostalgic and curiously new.
This little game is created by Foxium studios and has a classic look and feel that still manages to feel modern, with a bright and bold art-deco style.
The Foxpot slot is a 3 reel 1 payline slot that has 3 jackpots, with the top jackpot giving you a 200x your bet max win. Any 7s pay, the wild symbol helps create wins, and you get an extra little reel that can give you a bonus symbol or a 2x or 3x multiplier.
In short, this is a classic slot that looks good, but we are yet to be convinced if the wins are big enough to get us playing on the 12th of January.
Excitement level: Meh. We may pop our head in to see if our instincts are wrong on this one, but it’s not as exciting as the rest.
From the creators of the popular 9 Masks of Fire slot, Gameburger will be bringing you the bright and pink HyperStrike slot game released on the 19th of January 2021.
What you have here is a 20 payline slot machine that has three important symbols: the wild, the scatter and the hyperstrike symbol.
The first replaces other symbols to create wins, the second triggers anything from 10 to 30 free spins to 2x or 3x multiplier on all wins.
And then there’s the last HyperStrike scatter where 3 will win you 2x your bet, and 9 will win you 2,000x your bet. Now that’s some numbers we can get behind.
Excitement level: Pretty excited, this format has worked well for this game studio before, so why would lightning not hit three times (You can also check out the 9 Pots of Gold slot)
We know plenty about this Crazy Tooth Studio because they are loudly and proudly showing off their gem for their 2021 new slot release, and so they should.
With 4 reels and 7 rows of symbols, you’ll find lots of classic slot symbols such as 7s, bars and cherries over big tall reels. Will it play better in portrait mode in mobile casinos?
Probably, but Crazy Tooth has always been good at making all their casino slots look good on mobile, just look at the Ancient Warriors slot. Our worry? So far whilst their games have looked good, the substance wasn’t there.
This time around we have hope thanks to a top win of 6,601.05 times your bet which is the biggest win of all these game, short of the Megaways slots.
The re-spin insanity feature is what will make or break this 777 Mega Deluxe slot. Every winning symbol is spin again, with a chance to catch more wins, and hopefully, create plenty of action on the reels.
Excitement level: You had us at “6,601.05 times your bet max win”. We will definitely be playing this come January 2021.
So good news! This Forgotten Island Megaways slot has wins of up to 7,000x your bet and up to 117,649 ways to win over 6 reels.
Which is strange because the free spins are where all the big wins are found in all of these types of online slots and it works the same here as the other. 4 scatters triggers 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier, and every win will increase the multiplier (to an unlimited amount).
So why the cap? We hope it means you get more wins and easier wins that some of the more volatile type of this genre. The Forgotten Island Megaways slot can trigger random multiplier in the base game thanks to king kong sitting by the reels, which is a nice touch.
Excitement level: Very mixed. It may be great, it may be a sub-standard version of the game. But overall we are more excited than not.
Who is Gold Coin Studio? Just another studio owned and creating Microgaming slot for Microgaming casinos. We’ve not heard much about them, so imagine our surprise when we found ourselves to be most excited about this new Animals of Africa slot?
The slot theme is pretty standard. You got lions, and rhinoceros and monkeys – think the Mega Moolah slot game but more realistic.
So why are we excited about this one? Because you can win over 8,000x your bet, you have double symbols giving you 10 of a kind win, and expanding wilds in the free spins that give you free re-spins of the reels.
All in all, it sounds like a deadly combination that could make this one of the best 2021 slots of January.
Or we are overhyped because we don’t know much about this provider? We don’t think so. The numbers look good, and the features look even better.
Excitement level: We will be heading to our favourite Microgaming Grand Mondial casino to play this game on the 28th of January 2021.
This is just a few of the new slot games we can expect to see hit our online and mobile casino screens in the year ahead, offering exciting spins, and the chance to win big.
