The Sword and The Grail by Play N Go
Launch date: 6th August
Few legends are as exciting or as enduring as the ones about King Arthur, his knights of the round table and the wizard Merlin. Play N Go explores this theme with a visually stunning slot called The Sword and The Grail, in themselves two very important motifs in Arthurian legend.
The Sword and the Grail comes in a familiar 5×3 reel set, which is packed full of magical symbols that unlock thrilling features. We can see Arthur himself, Merlin, Lancelot and Guinevere as character symbols. The grail acts as a Wild while the sword acts as the Scatter.
After triggering the free spins feature, the player gets the chance to collect sword symbols and level up, increasing the win multiplier factor as they do and really getting the most out of this high volatility slot.
Fruit Supreme by Playson
Launch date: 8th August
It seems like we are experiencing a resurgence of the fruit slot as a template for modern games and Playson is throwing its hat in the ring with Fruit Supreme.
This slot does not follow the fruit machine layout exactly. In fact, it has a 4×3 reel structure as opposed to the traditional 3×3. It certainly looks the part though, with its oranges, lemons, bells and bars.
There are 25 betways on Fruit Supreme, also setting it apart from standard fruit slots, which tend to have fewer lines. On the whole, this game has stayed quite faithful for its inspiration and only includes multipliers as a bonus feature.
Hot Chilli by Pragmatic Play
Launch date: 8th August
It’s getting hot in here! Pragmatic Play’s Hot Chilli slot offers us an unusual theme but we are totally digging this red-hot zinger of a slot. This slot is, quite literally, about food and given that we’re always thinking about food, that’s a pretty good call from the studio.
Built on a 3×3 reel set, Hot Chilli is packed with symbols that are making us hungry – mushrooms, sweet corn, shrimp and chunks of red meat. It’s got 9 betlines and ranks medium-high for volatility.
The main (and only) game feature is the Multiplier, which makes us think this is another game that is drawing on the traditional 3-reel slot for inspiration, only with a different theme. Is anyone else hankering for a snack right now?
Tiki Vikings by JustForTheWin/Microgaming
Launch date: 7th August
There are some things in this world that automatically go together. Forks and knives. Peanut butter and jam. Fish and chips. But what about vikings and… a tiki theme?! Yes, we were confused at first too.
JustForTheWin has gone out on a limb with Tiki Vikings but putting the strangeness of the combination aside, this studio has put its design chops to work and made a great looking little slot.
Watch hardened Scandinavian warriors get in touch with their floral side in this game, which features re-spins as its main draw. Played on a 5×3 reel structure, Tiki Vikings feels like JFTW wanted to try something new without risking too much. We think they might be onto something.
