Christmas is over, but there’s still time to relax and enjoy our best new online slots of the week. In fact, we’re taking an extra helping of Christmas dinner and overloading on reel action with our selections.
We’re practically stuffed with paylines as both WMS and ReelPlay go supersize with Montezuma Megaways and Atlantis Megaways. Both games are out under license from BTG, whose hugely popular Megaways system is now being utilized by a range of top developers.
But before we go all out with the big reels, let’s start with a branded slot based on a festive classic. Gremlins has been a long time coming, and we have checked to see if Red 7 have done the 1984 film justice. Just remember not to play the game after midnight.
Gremlins by Red 7
Joe Dante’s dark Christmas comedy-horror really should be high up on everyone’s ‘Best Christmas Films’ list. It centered around the cute Mogwai who take over a mid-American town at Christmas after someone breaks the cardinal rule: never feed them after midnight.
Gremlins was equal parts horror and comedy, and the film’s best moments have been captured by Red 7 in this new game.
Three scatters will award one of five bonus features in the game. You can also land wild symbols which will multiply and replace symbols at random at the end of a spin.
The Bonus Selector includes Splashing Wild Free Spins, Gremlin Link Free Spins, Avoid the Sun Free Spins, and a Gizmo Box Hunt.
Our favorite feature is definitely the Splashing Wild Free Spins, where the evil gremlin will jump into a swimming pool and multiply into giant expanding wilds. If you thought the swimming pool scene from the original movie was scary, wait until you trigger this feature.
Like the original film, the Gremlins slot is fun, anarchic, and packed with action. And like Stripe and his gang of mischievous gremlins, the slot is definitely highly volatile. Try it for free today at VegasSlotsOnline.
Montezuma Megaways by WMS
Montezuma Megaways is the latest SG Interactive game to be issued under license from BTG (Big Time Gaming). As with other SG titles like 88 Fortunes Megaways and Legacy of Ra Megaways, Montezuma Megaways utilizes a special reel layout that can provide over 110,000 possible win lines.
Montezuma Megaways is a sequel to WMS’s popular Montezuma game that featured 30 paylines and a great Aztec theme.
This new slot gives those 30 paylines something of an upgrade. In comes a sixth reel, and more symbols per reel. Reels one and six can contain between two and seven symbols on every spin. There is also a Top Reel which spins horizontally. These symbols will contribute to those sitting on reels two to five.
In addition, you can hit cascading reels. Whenever you land a winning combination, the winning icons will disappear from view to be replaced by those sitting above.
We love previous Megaways slots and this looks set to be a winner with players. Give it a play for free today.
Atlantis Megaways by ReelPlay
BTG have been busy with the Megaways licenses this month. Also out in December is Atlantis Megaways by ReelPlay. The game has been produced under license from BTG and features a staggering 117,649 ways to win.
Throw in a grand jackpot worth 2,000x your stake and you have the makings of a popular online slot.
Atlantis Megaways is another upgrade of a previously released game. Where ReePlay’s original was light on bonus features, this new slot has more win lines, more bonuses, and more jackpots.
Six or more treasure chests triggers the Jackpot Respins feature. You can win respins or a jackpot worth 10x to 2000x your stake. During the respins, all scatters are held. You also have the chance to trigger one of the four fixed jackpots.
Like Montezuma Megaways, Atlantis Megaways is extremely volatile. Hit enough symbols in a spin and you can play anywhere from 1,800 to 117,649 win lines. Take the plunge today and play for free at VegasSlotsOnline.
Oceanus Rising by Playtech
If you thought our nest of new online slots of the week were all about Megaways, think again. But Playtech’s new Oceanus Rising slot does kick up the action with not one, but two sets of reels.
Oceanus Rising is a fresh take on the underwater-themed slot. There are 30 paylines active at the start of each spin. However, a Rising Respin can occur during any spin.
When this feature triggers, the reel height will increase by one row. It’s possible for the reels to grow to seven symbols high.
But there’s more bonus fun to be had. On every Rising Respin, a win multiplier will increase to 2x, 3x, and 5x.
With all reels in play, you can hit 70 potential paylines. It’s a game that’s packed with excitement and you can play it for free right now.
Check out Oceanus Rising today, along with all our best new online slots of the week.
