We get 2 new NetEnt slots games this July 2016, but which will win? We take a look at the videos, the facts, and tell you which is worth playing.
At first glance you couldn’t get two more different casino games. The ethereal Nrvna slot machine is 30 paylines that takes you out of this world, and “transcends time and space”.
NetEnt’s words, not our.
The plucky When Pigs Fly slot, on the other hand, though equally promising to get you up into space, is a purely comical affair.
And whilst we wait for the Theme Park: Tickets Of Fortune slot in June, we ask the all important question: which of these July slots releases will win our hearts and minds?
Let’s get judging people.

Right. Time for a nap, as you watch this 3 minute video:
Still with us? Good for you! We snoozed our way through most of that video if we are honest.

Here’s the equally “exciting” description of this upcoming NetEnt slot game.
“Nrvna™ is a harmonious game that transcends time and space, giving the players an out-of-this-world experience. While exploring Nrvna, players will find 5-reels, 30-bet lines and a x3 multiplier on Wild wins. With the mysterious Nrvna slot Wheel showing a multiplier of up to x10 and/or additional Free Spins of up to +2, the possibilities are endless in the new and yet to be discovered world of the Nrvna.” Quote from NetEnt Studios
Here’s our problem with this Nrvna slot machine, and it’s not the fact that we can’t pronounce it without sounding like we’ve just been on a 5 day bender and lost our ability to speak.
Though the pretentious of losing out of vowels probably didn’t help.
The theme is generic, and it’s about as meaningful as it’s name: that is, trying to be deep, whilst not actually having any cohesive theme to speak of.
It’s like they figured that as the Starburst slot is their most popular machine, people are going to want ethereal, spacey themes. But much like the Sparks slot didn’t work, because we wanted to fall asleep half way through, so the Nrvna theme comes across as lazy and uninspired.

Not sure that the ‘possibilities’ in this Nrvna mobile slot are endless though. In fact, if you look at the video, it pretty much slows down the entire rhythm of an already slow game.
Not that we are complaining about the fact that after every spin we could potentially win up to 10x multiplier on a win, but having to spin that wheel each time?
At least games like the Suptopia slot have the decency to just show you the multiplier on the reels instantly, without breaking the flow of the spins.
We could be wrong of course. Add that 3x multiplier on the wild symbol throughout the game, and we could be talking about some heavenly wins indeed.

Now we come across the slightly more exciting looking When Pigs Fly slot game.
Isn’t it funny? It’s like if Spongebob Square Pants met Ren and Stimpy pigs in space.
Though, again, we need to talk to the NetEnt copy writers, because looking at how they describe the slots, it sounds about as interesting as a fart in space.
“When Pigs Fly! offers players a level of excitement unheard of in online casino gaming. Features include Wild substitutions, re-spins and Free Spins with 3125 Ways to Win.
When Pigs Fly!™ is a game that is guaranteed to catch the attention of the online casino community, satisfying and captivating any player who takes a spin on the reels.”
Basically, potent and powerful, bringing out lots of emotions, but not massively useful in the long run.
The moment NetEntertainment mention that this When Pigs Fly mobile slot would feature 3125 ways to win, we got all excited.
Because the last, and only, game that had that many ways to win, we gave 5 stars we loved it so much.
So imagine our surprise when we went back to check the game mechanics for the Reel Rush slot game, only to find that When Pigs Fly is a copy, spin for spin.
Yeah, ok, our excitement died down a little then.
With Nrvna (god we hate writing that word), because we don’t know what to expect, we can make grand judgements and tag in a healthy amount of skepticism to our every word.
With this When Pigs Fly slot machine, on the other hand, it’s going to boil down to whether you like the theme.
We already know that the game mechanics work well. There is something inevitably exciting about watching the reels on the screen expand, from 45 paylines, all the way to 3,125 ways to wins.
Not to mention that each win leads to a free re-spin, till you get the free spin bonus that brings the same excitement as flying an actual rocket.
But will these little piggies have the same high-energy and nostalgia that Reel Rush managed to bring to the screen?
Without a doubt, we are 100% more excited about getting the When Pig Fly slot game. But then, it’s easy to be excited about a slot game which we already know we are going to love.
And if you think we are being a little boring, let’s not forget that copies aren’t in and of themselves, bad things.
Because we are human? But also because if you look at the figures, the Nrvna slot online, despite it’s stupid name, has the potential to pay out £€$300,000 on a single bet line, at the max bet of 150 a spin.
When Pigs Fly, on the other hand, can win you a maximum of £€$96,240 after a chain reaction of free spins. And it’s max bet is 100 a spin.
That’s a hefty number difference.
But, being gamblers, we have to stand by our initial bet and say that the lively and happy Pigs will win over the slow and pretentious Nrvna.
