Best New Online Slots of the Week | August 30, 2019

Age of the Gods: Apollo Power slot logo

As usual, it has been a very busy week in the gaming world. There has been an array of new online slots released by some of the biggest names in the business. To help you avoid playing games that are as entertaining as watching paint dry, we will highlight four of this week’s standout releases.

Our roundup begins with Playtech introducing us to the Greek god of sun and light in Age of the Gods: Apollo Power. We then rub shoulders with fabled characters like King Arthur and Iron Khan in Heroes Rise of the Legend, a breathtaking 50-payline slot created by the talented team at Spadegaming.

Bally have added to their long list of Asian-themed slots with Blazing X, a 5×5 slot that gives you the chance to win up to 6,750x your stake. Finally, we enter a fantasy world to play Volcano Queen: Diamond Spins, an extremely volatile progressive slot brought to us by IGT.

Age of the Gods: Apollo Power | Playtech

Apollo, the son of Zeus and Leto, welcomes us to Mount Olympus in the latest installment in Playtech’s epic Age of the Gods series.

Set high among fluffy clouds, Age of the Gods: Apollo Power showcases the powers of the immortal god across six reels and 50 fixed paylines. An impressive betting range of 0.50 to 500 credits per spin ensures players of all bankroll levels will have the opportunity to bow down to the legendary Greek god.

A grand soundscape befitting an online slot based on the Greek god of music (yes, Apollo was a god of many things) echoes out during each spin. Sound effects get even more dramatic when wild symbols land on the reels, as this triggers the pulsating Apollo Power Respins feature.

During this feature, a directional arrow will spin to determine which adjacent position each wild symbol should move to. Respins occur until the wilds return to their original position. As you can imagine, this can lead to wild reels and some extraordinary payouts if Apollo is feeling generous.

As if you didn’t need any more reasons to visit the Olympian, Age of the Gods: Apollo Power boasts four progressive jackpots. Known as the Power, Extra, Super, and Ultimate Jackpots, these progressives are linked to the potentially life-changing Age of the Gods jackpot network.

An impressive payout percentage of 96.47% suggests that Apollo is a lot kinder than many of the other gods Playtech have introduced us to. Ascend to Mount Olympus to discover just how generous he can be.

Heroes Rise of the Legend | Spadegaming

Have you binge-watched The Witcher on Netflix or read every page of the fantasy series of novels? If you have, you’ll love immersing yourself in the fantasy-themed Heroes Rise of the Legend slot.  

It’s another fine example of the creative skills of the team at Spadegaming, one of the leading casino game developers based in Asia. Photorealistic symbols bring four familiar characters to life across five reels. These fabled heroes include King Arthur, Iron Khan, Princess Yue, and Master Jiang.

Heroes Rise of the Legend slot

Set against a castle under siege, Heroes Rise of the Legend sees you stand shoulder to shoulder with all four powerful figures to fight the forces of evil. Mystical weapons like King Arthur’s sword appear across the 5×3 grid, and you’ll be hoping to land five of them across one of the game’s 50 fixed paylines.

Each hero can appear as a stacked symbol, which is where the Heroes Accumulation bar above the reels comes into play. Fill all 25 sections by landing stacked hero symbols for the honor of 12 free spins. There is a different free spins mode for each character, but the game randomly decides your fate instead of you getting to choose.

Let battle commence by spinning the reels of Heroes Rise of the Legend for free on VegasSlotsOnline.

Blazing X | Bally

Celestial King, Double Dragon, and Heavenly Riches are just three of the many amazing Asian-themed slots that Bally have released over the years. We can now add Blazing X to this ever-growing list.

Blazing X is a 5×5 slot flanked by a pair of golden Chinese dragons, which are said to be symbols of good fortune in the Far East. While these mystical creatures usually spit fire, it’s gold coins worth up to 6,750x your stake that this benevolent pair spit out.

Despite winning combinations being formed across 40 fixed paylines, Bally have opted for a peculiar betting range of 0.24 to 180 credits per spin. It’s something to do with their cynicism surrounding numbers, we guess. Low-paying royals, traditional silk fans, decorative vases, beautiful butterflies, and gold fortune coins all feature as symbols in this low-volatility release.

The numbers to the left and right of the grid play a significant role in determining how lucky you will be spinning these gold-trimmed reels. You could enjoy multiplied wins of up to 25x if you land an expanding wild symbol on the third reel. You will also unlock 10 free spins every time you see a trio of dragon scatter symbols fly onto the three central reels.

We’ve played plenty of online slots featuring dragons over the years. That said, we’ve got to admit that few of them have transformed our fortunes quite like this golden pair.

Volcano Queen: Diamond Spins | IGT

Unless you’ve been living under a rock your whole life, you’re bound to be familiar with Hawaii’s goddess of fire, Madame Pele. She was clearly the inspiration behind IGT’s latest video slot.

Comprising a standard 5×3 reel configuration, Volcano Queen: Diamond Spins revolves around a fiery redhead. She loves to watch volcanoes erupt with molten lava just as much as she loves receiving sparkling diamonds. Those brave enough to enter her kingdom can do so for between 0.60 and 9 credits per spin.

IGT have made it clear that this 30-payline slot is extremely volatile. However, it does contain several exciting bonus features that could help you avoid burning a hole in your bankroll. This includes Volcano Queen Respins, which kick into action each time you land three or more adjacent stacks of premium symbols. Wins from respins are also multiplied by either 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x.

Six or more scatters will result in the Volcano Queen granting you 10 free spins. It’s possible to retrigger this feature multiple times over, with a maximum of 120 free spins allowed in a single feature round.

As great as these two features are, the Volcano Queen: Diamond Spins slot is all about the Diamond Spins feature. You’ll need five or more diamonds to access the feature, which can lead to cash prizes or one of three progressive jackpots: Grand, Major, or Minor.

The Volcano Queen is every bit as feisty as she looks, but she could trigger volcanic eruptions of wins if you catch her in a good mood. Pay her a visit, if you dare!
