Update: Thunderkick's Wild Heist slot is out exclusively at Casumo casino right now.
We love it when two casino software studios decide to release two games on the same day. So who will win? Thunderkick Wild Heist slot or Just For The Win's Temple of Tut?
We are sure that Just For The Win (JFTW) studios and Thunderkick Games don’t see themselves as rival gang members.
But isn’t it fun imagining graphic designers and mathematician clicking their fingers as they slowly head towards each other in the greatest showdown since The Sharks and the Jets?
In reality, we get two very interesting, and very different, mobile slot games on May 2nd.
We’ll go through each one and let you know which we think you’ll be spending your money on and whether the relative newcomer has a chance against the rising star that is Thunderkick gaming.
JFTW is a relative newcomer to the scene. In fact, we can name all their games off the top of our head because there’s only three of them.
And now they have to do the obligatory Egyptian slot because no game collection would be complete without one.
It’s like you have to make a pact when you first start making gambling games that you’ll create an Egyptian and Irish slot otherwise you’re not welcomed in the club.
Intrigued? So are we, especially with what those ‘super reels’ could mean to our bank balance. Time will tell if they truly are something fun and different, or just a gimmicky name for stacked wilds.
Clue Spinning Detectives slot eat your heart out: this is what a Cluedo game should look like.
Granted, instead of murder, our usual colourful suspects are stealing a beautiful golden Peacock because… Copyright.
Of course, their track record in the last few releases haven’t been shining examples of the best slots online, so just because something looks good, doesn’t mean it is.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not going to win this slot battle especially if you look at the pure fighting power in that massive top win.
We should probably be clear and say that Just for the Win Studios and Thunderkick probably bear each other no ill will.
But in our heads, this is a fight for your attention come May 2nd 2018 as you have to decide which of the two new slots to play for real money on the day.
So let’s take a look at the three basic criteria for Android and iOS slots: how it looks, how it plays, and how much you can win.
We have to admit that we were not impressed with this Temple of Tut slot graphics – they look dated just from the screenshots we’ve been given.
Meanwhile, Thunderkick hits one out of the park with a brilliantly executed slot that pays homage to one of the best board games of our childhood – but with their own unique twist.
That said, Temple of Tut may yet redeem itself once it goes live online. Screenshots do not always do justice to good animations and sounds.
We kind of know what to expect from Thunderkick’s Wild Heist game; it’s similar to the likes of Golden Fish Tank and Secret of the Stones by NetEnt.

Both excellent games, which definitely makes Wild Heist an interesting one to watch – but we can kinda see where it’s going already.
Temple of Tut has those super reels, on the other hand, and they promise something a little different, and a simplicity that is hard to beat. Plus we love 10 payline slots with pay both way reels.
Thunderkick has not revealed to us what the maximum bet on their game is, but let’s be honest: 8,483x times your bet? That’s HUGE. That’s bigger than most of the more volatile machines out there.
That said, it’s a bit of an unfair comparison as 1,239 times your bet in the Temple of Tut game is more than reasonable for a medium variance machine.
Plus, the Thunderkick game might make it hard to get to those wins, making the slot unplayable. Whilst Temple of Tut will probably be more generous and friendlier.
We will have the slot reviews up on the day, but needless to say, this battle is far from won.
Personally, we’d probably put our bet on Thunderkick Gaming studios; namely because they have more hits to their name and we love them.
That said, don’t discount Just For The Win. They are exclusively creating games for Microgaming and they don’t just take any old riff-raff.
That said we doubt Temple of Tut slot will be the one to put them on the gambling map, but it may just take them one step closer to the limelight.
Meanwhile, why not try games from both these providers at Casumo casino? With a generous welcome offer and a unique casino adventure it’s a perfect match for these unique software providers.Start Playing at Casumo »
