As January comes to a close, we’ll check on the latest releases in the iGaming industry. This week brings us several interesting new titles. The diverse slate of games has something for everyone. Players can revisit the old legends, take a trip to Ancient Egypt, or enjoy the excitement of a magic show. Now, let’s discuss the newest online slot machines for the last week in January 2021.
First on the list is the new title from Betsoft. The renowned developer is closing the month with the magic-themed Stacked slot. It’s the latest addition to a strong start of the year from this provider. Stacked features a 4-reel grid and 20 ways to win. The Return to Player percentage is at 96.39%. Players will have a chance to feel some of the magic show atmosphere. The grid is set on a stage with the magician getting ready to perform his next trick. Likely involving the dove on the left side of the screen.
The game is filled with interesting and rewarding features. The unique mechanic has each reel position operating independently. Every spot looks like a deck of cards shuffling on every spin to reveal the symbol. Three or more matching icons lined up horizontally will pay up a prize. Even more rewards come from the magician himself. He can randomly perform some magic and add several matching cards to the reels. He can also trigger free spins round or a secret trick bonus after the non-winning spin. Otherwise, free spins are activated by three or more Mystery Box symbols. During the free spins round, you may activate the Prismatic Reel feature. Here, the magician will turn all symbols to wild for the duration of the round.
Nefertiti’s Riches from Red Rake Gaming sets up another meeting with the legendary Queen of Egypt. The most prosperous period in Egypt’s history was Nefertiti’s rule. So, once again, she’s back to bring amazing riches to slot players. The game features the incredible one million ways to win. This is another slot employing the cascade gameplay mechanics. The symbols from the winning combos will disappear from the reels. New empty spaces will be filled with the new ones tumbling from the above.
The 10×6 grid, besides symbols, also contains gray, non-wining blocks. They’re not completely useless, though. Accumulating enough of them will trigger Nefertiti’s mini-game. The round will activate the second set of reels. Here, you can land various valuable symbols. They may extend the reels and bring multipliers or free spins. Also, five consecutive respins will activate the free spins bonus.
After Egypt, the next game takes us to on a search for luck all over the world. The latest release from the Jade Rabbit studio is the Luck Spinner slot. At first glance, it looks like an ordinary 3×3 slot. However, it adds a little twist to the standard gameplay. The reels can go on tilt on any given spin. The grid is filled with good-luck symbols. While spinning, you may land horseshoes, four-leaf clovers, or crossed fingers. With all these good fortune charms from various cultures, some of the luck will surely rub off on you.
The gameplay revolves around three exciting features. “On Tilt” will have the grid leaning in at a 45 degrees angle. During this round, the game pays in two different directions. Free spins round contains multipliers that increase with every win. Also, there’s a Rapid Retrigger Bonus. If you manage to land the right symbols in this round, you’ll be rewarded with respins and more chances to win.Is this your favorite title of the newest online slot machines for this week?
The Next Newest Online Slot Machine, Hand of Midas
Finally, we take a look at a game featuring another mythical character. Pragmatic Play’s The Hand of Midas brings in the famous Greek king. The legend of King Midas is well known to everyone. Everything he touched, turned into gold. Hopefully, he’ll be able to do the same for your bankroll. With a jackpot with 1.000 times your bet, anything is possible. The hand of Midas has a standard 5-reel, 20 paylines setup, but hides some cool features under the hood.
Free spins round is triggered by landing three or more scatter symbols. Hitting them will activate three mini-reels with a different number of free spins. The position at which the reels stop will determine the number of extra spins you get. The wild symbols are represented with the letter “W”. They are also sticky and will remain at their position during the whole round. Like so many of the newest online slot machines, this one has a Bonus Buy feature. It allows you to buy your way straight into the bonus rounds.
