In this week’s roundup of the best new online slots, we meet weird and wonderful monsters before embarking on a deep space exploration. We also make a splash in shark-infested waters after jumping into a time travel machine to revisit the roaring twenties.

We begin with Endemol introducing us to an interesting new Scatterways mechanic as we hunt for monstrous wins in Monster Meltdown. Inspired Gaming quadruples the fun by allowing us to spin four sets of reels in the eye-catching Star Wilds Hot Spins + slot.

Nolimit City ensures that champagne flows freely in the dazzling Manhattan Goes Wild slot, where we are given a tour around 1920s New York by a very glamorous couple. Finally, we slip into our swimwear and dive into Razor Shark, a highly volatile slot developed by Push Gaming.

Monster Meltdown | Endemol

Fans of Play’n GO’s electrifying Reactoonz slot are in for a treat with Endemol’s latest release. Set in a laboratory, Monster Meltdown – which isn’t anywhere near as scary as its title suggests – showcases a brand-new game mechanic called Scatterways.

Scatterways cuts out the need for paylines. Instead, wins are awarded for matching between 5 and 15 symbols across the 5×3 game matrix. Interestingly, the dynamic matrix can expand to a maximum of 6×6. This creates 24 symbol positions to significantly boost your odds of landing a monstrous win.

The game matrix transforms when the robot lab technician pulls a lever to the right of the reels. While it often resets back to normal after a single spin, you may be lucky enough to witness a meltdown in the lab. Sirens and flashing alarm lights signal that you’ve been awarded two reel respins.

Spot the lever to the left of the reels? The robot can pull it to activate the Symbol Switch feature, which sees one of the five types of monsters appear in a radioactive state. The randomly selected monster then contaminates up to 12 monsters on the reels to give you a guaranteed win.  

Playable from only 0.10 credits per spin and boasting a generous payout percentage of 96.10%, Monster Meltdown certainly isn’t an online slot you should be afraid of playing in the dark.

Star Wilds Hot Spins + | Inspired Gaming

While space-themed slots often feature aliens on a mission to wipe out humanity, Inspired Gaming has bucked the trend with their Star Wilds Hot Spins + release. The UK-based software provider transports us to a galaxy filled with floating geometric shapes, bells, and lucky 7s for a rather tranquil gaming session.

Designed in a minimalist style, Star Wilds Hot Spins + is a five-reel, three-row online slot that features 10 fixed win lines. You can ascend to the stars from as little as 0.10 credits, while the space explorers among you with deeper pockets can increase their stake to a maximum of 100 credits.

For wins that are truly out of this world, you’ll be hoping to land a winning combination worth 4x your stake or more. This feat initiates the exciting Hot Spins bonus feature. You can either choose to collect your base game win or activate Hot Spins for the chance to spin four reels for four times the wins.

The number of Hot Spins you receive will depend on how much your base game win was worth. All wild symbols that land on each reel are copied onto the exact same position on all the other reels during Hot Spins. Quadrupling the fun doesn’t always pay off, but it’s great to have the option.

Will Star Wilds Hot Spins + leave you feeling starry-eyed? Launch it to find out.  

Manhattan Goes Wild | Nolimit City

Get dressed to the nines for an evening of champagne and dancing in 1920s New York. The Manhattan Goes Wild slot sees Stockholm-based software provider Nolimit City give us a glimpse of how the elite in society lived during the Roaring Twenties.   

This stunning slot comprises five reels and a whopping 243 ways to win. The opulent art deco style and the riches of a wealthy couple called Bugsy and Betty are showcased across the game matrix. You’ll even see the Empire State Building towering above the rest of the city’s skyline in the background.

You can mingle with the affluent couple, who take center stage on the reels from as little as 0.10 credits per spin. If you’d rather flash the cash and show them that you also have deep pockets, you can increase the bet size to a maximum of 50 credits.

Both Bugsy and Betty feature as stacked wild symbols. If you’re lucky enough to see both appear stacked at the same time, you will be awarded a respin. There is also a Manhattan Spins bonus. You’ll receive free spins, during which all premium symbols are added to a win meter. For each meter you fill, the respective symbol will turn wild for the duration of the feature.

How could you possibly turn down an evening with Bugsy and Betty? They have champagne ready for you and can’t wait to shower you with bonus features. It’s time to get the party started in Manhattan!

Razor Shark | Push Gaming

Fat Rabbit has undoubtedly been the most volatile slot released by Push Gaming since its launch in March 2018, but everything points to Razor Shark surpassing it on the volatility scale.

The London-based games studio has made it crystal clear that Razor Shark is not for the faint-hearted. Therefore, you might want to start swimming with sharks from the lowest limit of 0.10 credits per spin. That said, the advertised return-to-player (RTP) of 96.70% suggests that these sharks are a lot friendlier than they look.

Those brave enough to dive into shark-infested waters will hope to spot five great white sharks across one of the game’s 20 paylines. This combination is worth 50x your bet. There are four other types of sharks to look out for, as well as scuba diving equipment and a waterproof camera. Say cheese, Sharky!

Lots of hidden treasures are waiting to be discovered among the coral in this underwater-themed slot. Stacks of four mystery symbols can appear to trigger the Razor Reveal feature. Golden sharks then transform these symbols into individual reels that can award bet multipliers of up to 2,500x and scatter symbols to help you unlock the gripping Free Games feature.

Absorbing animations and an array of exciting features are just two of the many reasons why you should swim with sharks in Razor Shark. Grab your swimming gear and dive in!
