Best New Slots in 2019 | 14 June 2019

In our round-up this week we enter the world of Czech premier division soccer, take to the mean streets as a ruthless P.I., and revisit a true classic of Irish-themed slots.

Fortuna: Liga gives you the opportunity to customize your symbols and pick your favorite Czech soccer teams. What do you mean you don’t know anything about Czech soccer? No matter – this new Playtech slot is crammed with bonus features and unlimited free games.

Then, we boost our paylines with Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches Megaways slot. It’s a familiar upgrade to a tried and tested slot great. But is there gold at the end of the rainbow?

And finishing off our slots news, we have two games where bravery plays a central theme. Big Time Gaming’s King Maker slot has 16,807 ways to win and free spins galore, while PlayPearls’ Colt P.I. recalls classic 1980s TV cop dramas. How’s that for an eclectic range of games to try this week?

Fortuna: Liga | Playtech

If you are a fan of Sparta Prague or Czech soccer in general, Playtech’s new sports-themed slot is for you. Fortuna: Liga is a fun 5-reel game based on the Czech Republic’s premier soccer league.

In fact, the release makes sense. The Czech “liga” carries brand sponsorship by online gaming giant, Fortuna, with whom Playtech signed a partnership deal with back in 2017. This is obviously a release intended for Czech and eastern European slots fans.

Soccer-themed slots come and go. But it’s fun to see specific country leagues being targeted by software providers.

When you load up Fortuna: Liga, you have the chance to customize the game symbols. There are 16 league team badges to pick from, including Sparta Prague, Slavia Prague, and FC Viktoria Plzen. So, if you are a fan of Dukla Prague, you can make their badge the jackpot symbol, and so on.

Watch out for the gold cup symbols. Landing those on reels 1 and 5 will trigger the Football Trophy bonus round. The feature works like a pick ’em bonus game where you select yellow cards to reveal multipliers, cash, or more picks.

Fortuna: Liga also has a wild free spins round. Land three scatters to activate the feature. A football will be kicked onto the reels, turning symbols at random into wilds. If the football scores a goal, you will win more spins with wilds becoming locked.

Go for goal and take down the league in this interesting eastern European football curiosity.

Rainbow Riches Megaways | Barcrest

When it comes to classic slots brands, they don’t come bigger than Rainbow Riches. Barcrest have released over half a dozen exciting Irish-themed games in the range. And every new release comes with bigger and better features.

Rainbow Riches Megaways is Barcrest’s attempt to super-size the brand. The game features a staggering 117,649 ways to win should you decide to play every possible win line.

Cascading symbols, free spins, and a cool new Super Gem Bonus add to the excitement. Can you finally gran that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

Rainbow Riches Megaways has been released under license from Big Time Gaming. And if you know BTG’s online slots, you’ll know that a major feature of their games is the Megaways function.

The reels can be increased to create many thousands of paylines during gameplay. In fact, you start each spin with 324 win ways across a funky 6-reel format. The reels sit in a fun 7-6-5-4-3-2 formation.

Look out for the special row sitting above the regular reels. If a gem appears in this row you will trigger the Super Gem Bonus with the potential to win some big prizes.

Rainbow Riches Megaways also features cascading wins. All winning combinations are removed from play and are replaced by symbols sitting above on the reels. You can trigger 12 free spins in the bonus game, and retrigger them with additional scatter pays.

In keeping with many big-money slots these days, Rainbow Riches Megaways lets you bypass the base game and skip straight to the action. The ‘Buy Pass’ feature gives you direct access to the free spins round. But at a cost of 100x stake, this isn’t a shortcut for the faint-hearted.

Join the jolly leprechaun and see if this latest Rainbow Riches release is worth the journey.

King Maker | Big Time Gaming

Who can resist a trip back in time to an age of bravery, chivalry, and massive swords? Not Big Time Gaming, if the new King Maker slot is anything to go by.

Big Time Gaming are really going big on this new game. You can bet across 16,807 ways to win during spins by opting for the MegaWays structure.

Megaways debuted on Big Time Gaming’s Dragon Born, but how much of an advance is this new medieval-themed slot? We’ll have to slip on the suit of armor to find out.

Big Time Gaming have been here before when it comes to medieval-themed games. Dragon Born and the new Holy Diver slot recall a time of queens, kings, and knights. In King Maker, we find castles, mythical creatures, and stained glass windows.

There are actually 16,807 Megaways in this game, compared to the 117,649 you sometimes find in Big Time games. But it really makes little difference to the gameplay as you still get to enjoy expanded reels in the bonus feature.

Scatter prizes are the big attraction in King Maker. You can earn a prize worth 4x, 20x, or 250x your stake if you land 3-5 scatters. However, scatters will also trigger 7, 12 or 20 free spins, and this is where the game kicks things up a gear.

As you play free spins you will build up prize multipliers. The more you play, the more multipliers you accumulate. Once you hit that feature trigger the multipliers can really pay.

2019 looks like being a big year for Big Time Gaming’s MegaWays slots. Super size your gameplay and try out this exciting slot today.

Colt P.I. | PlayPearls

If you’re old enough, you might remember Tom Selleck as the moustachioed Magnum P.I., a suave detective cruising the avenues of Hawaii in his kick-ass Lamborghini.

Well, following in the footsteps of NetEnt’s retro Miami Vice-inspired Hotline slot is Colt P.I. from PlayPearls.

Colt P.I. actually forms part of the Adventure series of slots from PlayPearls. The casino provider has already covered pirates, space warriors, and big game hunters, so why not 1980s private detectives?

The star of the Colt P.I. online slot is a no-nonsense detective who looks like he’s come straight out of Grand Theft Auto Vice City. He drives a Ferrari, has his Hawaiian shirt unbuttoned, and shows off his hairy chest proudly as you spin the reels.

There are 25 fixed paylines in the game, with coins starting at just 0.01. You also have the option of switching between a background soundtrack, reel sounds, or a selection of Colt P.I. quotes.

Look out for the glitterball symbols. These kitsch scatters will help you trigger free spins if you land three or more on the reels in any position. There’s the potential to win 30 free games.

But the Car Chase bonus is the big draw. We go full retro on this bonus as Colt chases the bad guys down a freeway. The added incentive is that you can choose to move the car manually or let the computer do it. If you love ’80s arcade games, this is the game for you.
