There is plenty to look forward to this month, not least because of the big selection of games due to be launched! Read on to find out what’s in the pipeline from some of our favourite game providers and the details we have learned about upcoming slots.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes by NetEnt
Launch date: 7th March
This slot by NetEnt is one of the first out the gates this month and that’s no surprise – this one is all about horse racing! While it’s true that there are already a handful of racing-related slots, we’re fairly confident that NetEnt’s submission will be able to stand out.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes is built on a 5×3 reel set, with 20 paylines. However, thanks to a special feature, the game screen can expand to a 5×4 layout with 32 paylines.
Super Stakes also offers players the chance to select a level of volatility that suits them through the same feature – Peter’s Classic Cup – depending on which of four horses they choose to back.
This variable volatility plus a free spins feature and a visual design befitting of a NetEnt title puts Scudamore’s Super Stakes lengths ahead of the competition in our eyes.
Wild Gladiators by Pragmatic Play
Launch date: 7th March
Wild Gladiators from Pragmatic Play is set against the majestic backdrop of the Colosseum in Rome, where big, beefy warriors are ready to fight to the death for glory. This slot is built on a 5×3 reel structure and has 25 paylines with a max win of 100,000 coins.
The main game screen is made up of 5 reels but in fact, there is a sixth multiplier reel off to the side, which spins independently. This has the potential to boost payouts by up to a factor of 10, which makes for a very enticing prospect.
Wild Gladiators also offers Expanding Wilds, free spins and re-triggers. With a medium variance and an RTP that falls within the average range, players can expect their bankroll to last a while. But will the gladiators last as long?
Zombie Hoard by Microgaming
Launch date: 6th March
This game is actually the result of a partnership between Microgaming and Slingshot Studios, a developer making games exclusively for Microgaming.
If the game’s title makes you think of gory scenes involving the undead, ala Walking Dead, hold it right there. This is by no means scary, nor does it try to be. The 3D design is whimsical and cartoon-like – a slot game that won’t be giving anyone nightmares in a hurry.
Zombie Hoard has a 5×3 reel layout and 9 paylines. Its RTP and variance numbers hover around average and medium, respectively, further emphasising this title’s casual, fun atmosphere.
By way of features, Zombie Hoard offers free spins, super-stacked Wilds and the potential to trigger multipliers. These characters may be undead but they sure know how to keep the casino experience lively!
The Grand by Quickspin
Launch date: 12th March
Step into the glamorous world of downtown Las Vegas with Quickspin’s video slot The Grand. This slot has an unusual, funnel-shaped layout, which goes 3-3-4-4-5. It’s got an opulent look to it, making you feel like you are right there among the lights and the action.
Quickspin has a knack for making slots that look simply stunning and its continuing with that trend in The Grand. But there’s also plenty to look at under the hood, so to speak.
The game has 214 betways and promises a high volatility. Alongside these enticing numbers, The Grand also offers free spins, random features and a bonus game with multiple opportunities to boost play.
If you’re looking for a bit of glamour and the thrills of a high volatility slot, The Grand might just be the game for you.
Temple of Nudges by NetEnt
Launch date: 21st March
While it might sound like an odd thing to build a temple to, NetEnt has gone out on a limb with this title and created an unusual slot with a few familiar motifs. It’s not NetEnt’s first foray into the jungle, with titles like the classic Gonzo’s Quest coming to mind immediately.
Temple of Nudges takes place deep in the jungle and wild critters make up the symbols here. The sloth in particularly is very cute. The nudge feature from the title comes into play each time a win is landed, giving the player an additional chance to hit a winning combo. This continues until there are no wins left to collect.
The slot has a 5×3 reel structure and 243 paylines. Its RTP sits just above 96% and its variance is described as medium-to-high. It offers re-spins but no free spins, which may disappoint players who are particularly fond of that feature.
Agent Jane Blonde Returns by Microgaming
Launch date: 30th March
Microgaming’s favourite spy Agent Jane Blonde is back! Eleven years after her introduction in Agent Jane Blonde, a new slot promises to bring the adventure back.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Agent Blonde and she looks mighty different these days. The character and the game have been given a full 3D makeover, bringing the look forward to 2019 and leaving behind the cartoon style of 2008.
In terms of structure, Agent Jane Blonde Returns is built around a 5-reel, 3-row structure, with 30 betways. The game offers only re-spins and Wilds features, which is likely to leave fans a little disappointed after such a long wait.
We have only caught a small glimpse of this slot before its release so there’s no telling what the experience itself will be like. With a reportedly low level of variance, we hope this one will dazzle us in other ways once it launches.
