Our pick of the top new slots coming your way in October 2019


There’s never a dull moment in the casino world, and now that October has rolled around we’ve got another huge month of slot releases to look forward to. This month our top slot providers have worked hard to impress us again, with a host of fun new slot features and mechanics to look out for.

There’s a whole bunch of new slots launching over the course of the month (and we’ll keep you in the loop with our regular reviews), but the JohnSlots team has the difficult task of selecting our top five for October.
